Sex Swing release their ominous new album ‘Type II’ on Rocket Recordings

“Type II” is out on Rocket Recordings! The album by Sex Swing (members an contributers from Mugstar, Bonnacons of a Doom, Part Chimp, Dethscalator, Earth, Dead Neanderthalls and Idles and who the hell knows who else) is released and is a ominous feast. The music Sex Swing makes is something in the psych/noise/postpunk spectrum but it is pretty bleak, their is an unnerving atmopshere throughout the whole album. The thing that does it most for me is the sax in the music, the music is already very layered  but with the addition of Colin Webster’s sax the music is downright scary. This album has a lot of dimensions and is one of those albums you need to listen to a couple of times to hear how good it actually is, all these different artist have put their signature wich makes it extremely original and a true feast to listen too.

Tambourinen released Wooden Flower

Browsing through the internet I found this band called Tambourinen and lord, this instrumental band is absolutely gorgeous. Their music is hypnotic krautrock but it is so fuzzed out it still has a heavy feel to it. very trippy stuff. I recommend this to every psych fan. This is the side project by Grant Beyschau of The Myrrors

 

 

Quite a pleasant mix of destructive noiserock and psychedelic stoner on the new Blanchard

Now, this band has has stepped it up quite a notch. Their new stuff is called “Holy Shit” and is just a riff feast. Elements of psych, stoner, spacerock and noise are all there and fit as good as the shoe fits on cinderalla. The album hits as hard emotionally as the death of Bambi or the loss felt in 1988 classic movie l’ours. The psychedelic riffs make me feel as high as Carl Fredricksen in Up. You get the picture I guess. Now what else is remarkable is all the times we see the word shit in this EP and another word i did not know was Fatberg. So what do you do if you are ignorant or stupid? You wiki it ofcourse.

“A fatberg is a congealed mass in a sewer system formed by the combination of flushed non-biodegradable solid matter, such as wet wipes, and congealed grease or cooking fat.Fatbergs became a problem in the 2010s in Britain, because of ageing Victorian sewers and the rise in usage of disposable (so-called “flushable”) cloths.”

“Shit is a word generally considered to be vulgar and profane in Modern English. As a noun, it refers to fecal matter, and as a verb it means to defecate; in the plural (“the shits”), it means diarrhoea. Shite is a common variant in British and Irish English.[1] As a slang term, it has many meanings, including: nonsense, foolishness, something of little value or quality, trivial and usually boastful or inaccurate talk or a contemptible person. It could also be used to refer to any other noun in general or as an expression of annoyance, surprise or anger.”

I have said like everything that is needed right?

A compilation of Black Sabbath covers recorded by artists from across the Sacred Bones roster

Sacred Bones has always been an special label, the name brings up somthing magical in me, their bands are so wide on the musical spectrum, between experimental an dreamy, it is just amazing to look in to everything and discover all this gems. Now they released a various artists compilation to To celebrate the 50th anniversary of both the self-titled Black Sabbath album and ‘Paranoid called  ‘What Is This That Stands Before Me?’. The thing that is immediatly clear and shows why the bands on the label and ofcourse the label itself are so special is because these covers are so unique, each artist truly made a song in their own style, not like many covers just mimic the track but they truly blended and molded the songs in their own way. Just listen to the first song by The Soft Moon, it is an industrial version of the track ‘Black Sabbath’ and then you know you are in for a ride. An 80 techno russian like version? A sludgemetal one or a dark pop version. Some close to recognizing the original some far away. How Hillary Woods molds N.I.B. into her own version is almost sacred. Zola Jesus doing changes gives me the chills and Moon Duo, wich is one of my favourite bands takes care of one of my favourite tracks. And ending with a brutal industrial take from Uniform. This is a label and bands that are extremely professional and good at what they do.

New Kikagaku Moyo/幾何学模様 track on Looking Glass

Looking Glass is a singles series that demonstrates discovery, diversity, and collaboration with artists both from and not far from Mexican Summer’s family tree. All Bandcamp proceeds from Looking Glass will filter straight back to the artist, or a charity of their choice. In the past they where releases from Conan Mockassin, Sessa and Matchess.

This time it is Kikagaku Moyo with a new psychedelic track called ‘Ouchi Time’ wich means ‘Time in the house’. Check out their previous twotrack release too and the other Looking Glass tracks.

Elder release new album ‘Omens’

Elder has released some incredible stuff over the years, but lately they seem too experiment with their sound. “The Gold and Silver Sessions” was an album that was more psychedelic wich fitted more on Fuzzy Sun than this new thing but I still prefer the heavy riffed doomlike Elder from long ago. Now, normally I am a big fan of experimenting and changing sounds but this is all wrong for me. I expect heaviness from Elder, I expect high psychedelia with riffs and strong vocals. But on this new album ‘Omens’ everything of the good stuff is gone, I can’t seem to find a good riff, the vocals are really weak. They seem to have changed in a bad progmetal band. I see a lot of praise for this album around the web so I am glad lots of people like it but this is not the Elder I want.

Almost Sex Swing time!

It is time for the third Sex Swing track before the release of their album “Type II” on May 15 on Rocket Recordings. Over the years they had members from Mugstar, Bonnacons of a Doom, Part Chimp, Dethscalator, Earth, Dead Neanderthalls and Idles and I don’t know who else. Their first track was called “Valentine’s Day At The Gym”, the second “The Passover” and now their released their third track “Skimmington Ride”. The band continues on the track of fuzzed out and noisy experimental psychedelia. This occult sounding track has something of an eerie hypnotic vibe to it, their music is quite addictive and, honestly, gives me a bit of the creeps.
