sorry for lack of updates on the bandcamp front. Those that utilize bandcamp to
its fullest extent probably haven't missed out on much, especially if they
follow the cool kids crowd. Personally I've slowed down slightly as I'm trying
to save a little bit of money for real life stuff, but I did manage to get over
the 800 album mark in my collection a few weeks back. Here are some albums of
Space - Invaders
melting stuff. Intensely trippy groove with killer hypnotics vocals throughout
the entire half hour plus set. Such a crunchy, infectious, psychedelic
Wolves - High and Mighty
about the heavy psychedelic rock sprouting up in Nashville lately. Totally
intriguing blend of fat fuzz and kaleidoscopic doom meets blues. Love it. Not
too far off their Nashville neighbors, All Them Witches."
don't know why there isn't more activity on this page. Perhaps its the price?
The quality justifies the higher price in my opinion, but suit yourself. Check
it out at least.
Thunderland - In The Afterglow of Unity
is a beautiful place maintaining a pleasantly doomy climate scattered with
poppy hooks and a glowing opportunity for musical prowess. Combining a Torchey
sludge pop with a Mastodon melody and the rhythm and flow of today's greatest
stoner rock the Palace is open for business and business is good!"
Smiling Now But We'll All Turn Into Demons - Population IV
Came up on
this beauty of a label collection while trolling the feed and ended up buying
two vinyl records. Check out Captcha Records page for a string of unique
this isn't the shiniest diamond in the dreamiest rough? Super trippy fuzz
drowned in progressively western psychedelia! Album of the day! 4-21-15 FFO
Across Tundras, Tumbleweed Dealer..... Oh and Sabbath. There's a little bit of
Sabbath worship interjected for good measure."
lxtlan - Vol II
immaculate display of spaced out riffs! I am not normally one for mostly
instrumental and foreign language jams, but this Argentinian desert/space rock
is unbelievable.I could listen to this
all day, and have today, picks up right where the glorious debut left
off." I was blown away with their last album as well and got the
notification of the release of this new one I was all over it. Seriously
Shrine - Home Baked
unbelievable people! I second Harry's comment. For a modern comparison think
'The Golden Grass' with superb guitar solos and groovy psychedelic melodies. I
listen at least once a week."
Kendra Demo 2015
is right, there is nothing bad about this album at all, other than me wondering
how I'm going to scrape my melted brain off the front of my seat and put it
back into my crushed skull cavity which occurred on my commute home from work.
Staggering display of uniquely gratifying jams. Took a good minute to get into,
but before too long you will see what we're talking about."
- Hold You Like A Harness
stumbled onto this elegantly gritty Americana. Dark atmospherics create a
pleasantly uplifting mood packed full of great lyrics. For fans of Bruce
Springsteen, Steve Earle, James McMurtry..."
Penis - King of Slaps
I couldn't go
on without giving this one a mention. If you are into a melodic punk rock look
no further. "Never mind the silly band name. Or wait, no, take heed of the
band name. Guard your vaginas, wrap your cocks, King of Slaps you in the
special place with its ultra melodic punk rock and roll. Fast paced meaty
licks, with throbbing gang bang vocals pump the speakers in style. Really,
listen before you judge!"
just a few highlights I've come across since last time and I encourage you all
to sign up and join the party over at bandcamp. Much more to come.
