    This 7 track mini album release runs over 27 minutes Alex Zhang Hungtai AKA Dirty Beaches started off as a one man band in 2005, Montreal and has since released a dozen releases on various independent labels.

    A trans-pacific nomad and genre hopping sound smith, his past releases include: drone instrumentals, films scores, and his fascination with dissecting popular american music like blues, rockabilly, soul, RNB, and hip hop, often rendering them to the point where its no longer recognizable.

    His latest release WATERPARK is a film score written for Director Evan Prosofsky's same titled film, and explores the neutral element of sound in a massive indoor water park located in west Edmonton Mall, in the province of Alberta. A vacation home to countless stranded Canadians with no vacation in sight.

    The instrumentation of oscillators, heavily reverberated strings, mellotron/chamberlain, and experimental electric guitar sets the mood for this bizarre plastic tropical paradise thats within a shopping mall.

    DYN 'DYN'

    £13.99

    8MM Musik presents the self-titled debut LP by Berlin garage and psych-rock natives DYN (pronounced - žDine'). The duo of multi-instrumentalists Tilman (Drum, Vocals) and Carl (Guitar, bass organ, vocals) teamed up with engineer producer Fabien Lesiure (The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dirty Beaches) to record the 9 song album in a manner true to their lofi high intensity dynamic.

    Drummer Til Kettner pounds out the beat while belting out his lyrics about love lust and misadventure, while Carl Heine kicks out the guitar and bass riffs (playing both at the same time), while also providing backing vocals. Over the last four years DYN have developed their charismatic blend of experimental garage-rock, gigging throughout the formerly divided German capital city. Performing previously under the moniker Delta Love, the band have recently supported Mission Of Burma, The Raveonettes and King Khan & and the Shrines.

    Its only appropriate that the bands long anticipated debut be released by 8MM Musik, since starting in 2002, Berlins 8MM Bar has brought sense of reverence to the DIY experimental music cultures of 1970's and 80's New York, Washington DC, Köln and Berlin to the contemporary nightlife of Berlin. 8MM Musik was started to encourage and support Berlin's own original rock'n'roll scene.

    Over the years, 8MM Musik helped bring international recognition to bands based out of Germany. Most notably The Blue Angel Lounge from Hagen as well as other notable German bands such as Kadavar, Camera, and Jack November.

    Gunman and the Holy Ghost  is another music project created by Hákon Aðalsteinsson (The Third Sound).  The songs were written in Berlin during the coldest months of the winter then recorded and mixed next spring time. Now available on 180 gram vinyl.

    From a review by JJ Baker: When I started listening to Gunman & The Holy Ghost it actually made me laugh. Such misery! This is melancholy with gristle! This album is barefaced in it's misery-it doesn't resist it, it uses it.

    Song titles like I Don't Believe In Love Anymore and Oh Lord, Let Me Die In Pain are pretty good indication of what we're in for here, though there's great variation on this deliciously dark album. Opener The Eight To Five Train To Nothing snared me right in the lip and I was willfully dragged up through that ink black water and onto the good ship Gunman.

    A relatively upbeat tune, it has some sad, sad lyrics:I would want you here but you're nowhere near so I just keep steaming on; Into the wilderness and unhappiness right back where I came from Lines like this are so damn dark, they bring a smile to my face¦

    'Minus One' is in fact The KVB's third album, their second full length LP 'Immaterial Visions' which came with an accompanying remix EP, featuring mixes from underground techno pioneers Regis and Silent Servant was only released in February this year.

    The KVB is a group with a sense of urgency about it, to do what they need to do, with full commitment and without delay. It's a tangible attitude that runs throughout 'Minus One'.

    'Out Of Body' is a further exploration of the bands interest in phenomenology, bodily immersion and consciousness. Introspective lyrics are suspended in dream like melodies, further expanding upon the duo's hypnotic aesthetic which they explore both sonically and visually on the record.

    Les Big Byrd 'They Worshipped Cats'

    £14.99

    February 2014 saw the band release their Back To Bagarmossen EP on London/Stockholm indie label PNKSLM Recordings. The 10 vinyl received huge praise both internationally and at home, even picking up mainstream TV coverage on  Sweden's TV4.

    Following the EP, Les Big Byrd unleashed their debut full length release, They Worshipped Cats, on Anton Newcombe's A Records, Anton has co written & plays 2 tracks on the album, they are supporting the Brian Jonestown Massacre on their European tour. 

    When Anton recently visited Stockholm with his band The Brian Jonestown Massacre, the guys accidentally ran into each other at a local record shop, and started talking about music. Anton invited the band down to his studio in Berlin to record and jam for a few days and it was there that a big part of "They Worshipped Cats" was conceived and recorded. The album is filled with beautifully melancholic melodies, poems of time-space continuum read through vocoders, cosmic clouds of filtered stringmachines, motorik krautrock drums, 12-string .

    Les Big Byrd was formed in Stockholm by Joakim oehlund and Frans Johansson a couple of years ago.
    Joakim was brought up in the late seventies by an immigrant mom in Bagarmossen, a Stockholm suburb where kids sniffed glue in the concrete basements, and the local smalltime gangsters did drive-by's long before Sweden even knew what the phrase meant. At the same time, Frans grew up in the very north of Sweden in a small town with 9 months of winter and darkness every year.

    They each eventually joined different rock bands that brought them out of Sweden and into a different world, and took them across Japan, England, Europe and America. Frans' band Fireside, got signed by Rick Rubin to his label Def American and Jocke had a taste of international success with 60's-influenced garage-pop outfit Caesars, as well as his other, more electronically flavored project Teddybears.

    Years later, Frans and Jocke met up again after both Caesars and Fireside had crashed and burned due to drug-fueled intrigues, road-weariness, bad management or complete lack thereof.

    They decided that they still - in spite of everything - had their love for music intact, and the dream in common to get the perfect band together and give it one more shot. They recruited Jocke's former bandmate, drummer Nino Keller and keyboardist Konie and started jamming and rehearsing. 

    Joakim had been running a recording studio in Stockholm, writing and producing for Swedish and international artists, including Robyn and Håkan Hellström, and had also directed music videos for prominent Swedish exports such as Bob Hund, Refused, Broder Daniel and The International Noise Conspiracy. Keyboardist Konie also runs a studio in Stockholm, where he's been recording a number of film scores as well as many of Swedens most interesting black metal acts.

    After 2014 which saw the band supporting Goat & the Brian Jonestown Massacre on their European tours .

    This 4 track EP runs at over 24 minutes .

    Their new EP is Stockholm Death Star which is recorded in the band's own studio in Sweden's capital and consists of four new tracks. Those of you who are already familiar with the group will probably recognize their trippy spacerock over pulsating motorik beats from their earlier releases, and their feel for melodies is still very much present in the four songs.

    Produced by the bands guitarist, singer and main songwriter during the dark months of the Scandinavian winter, the music still has an ethereal light glimmering through the blissfully stoned vocal harmonies and chiming twelve string guitar riffs. " If you live in a dark and cold city covered in snow and the times around you are dark as well, you have to look extra hard and try to find a little spark of light inside yourself" as Joakim æhlund puts it.

    Three of the tracks have that typical almost danceable groove that we have come to expect from this band and there's even a sort of ballad ending the EP, the almost dubby, seven and a half minutes long, spaced out "Vapour RIP", which though its rather dark lyrics deal with a misspent life and futile regrets, ends in an uplifting almost religious crescendo with fuzz guitars and mellotron strings.

    Magic Castles had self-released three albums (two in 2009), all of which are currently out of print, before fans landed a You Tube video in the hands of the legendary Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre) via the We Are The Radio/Dead TV experimental social media phenomenon in 2010. On hearing the tracks Anton quickly asked the band to sign to his label which they did in 2011.

    Magic Castles are a band from Minneapolis Minnesota that was abruptly formed in 2006 by Jason Edmonds, with the help of guitar-ace Jeremiah Doering and a rotating cast of players and friends.

    Lyrically concerned with trolls, golden birds, and other creatures conjured from the lands of the mushroomed mind, the band takes a journey-is-better-than-the destination approach.

    Inspired by Spacemen 3, Skygreen Leopards, Galaxie 500, the band combines warm Farfisa drones with hazy guitars and bright vocal harmonies to create something similar without sounding redundant.

    Magic Castles are a five-piece psychedelic rock band from Minneapolis MN. Their sound has been described as minimalistic, dream pop & neo-psychedelic rock. Drawing from a myriad of influences, combining the hazy, "floaty" atmospherics of bands like Spacemen 3 and Galaxie 500, with the organ-drenched psych of the mid/late 60's--particularly American west coast folk-rock, Magic Castles continue to create an altogether unique sound.


    Since their 2012 release on Anton Newcombe's imprint they have toured consistently, building a solid reputation for wall-of-sound live shows, stretching out their songs to new dimensions. The Magic Castles were the supporting act for BJM's east coast tour in 2012. Thrasher Magazine recently used their song "Big Sur" in a skate video alongside Kurt Vile. On April 20th 2014, BJM released a beautiful 12" split single with The Magic Castles for Record Store Day.

    "Sky Sounds was recorded at The Old Blackberry Way Studio in Minneapolis, MN by Neil Weir. Produced by Neil Weir, Jason Edmonds, "Sky Sounds sees the band reaching new heights. The album is dense with lush arrangements, jangling backward guitar sweeps, ever deepening melodic layers, symphonic Farfisa tones, and bright vocal harmonies. A host of guest musicians were included on select tracks, adding cello, viola, flute & trombone.

    Fizzy is a studio recording and was recorded in the summer of 2012 , 'Urine Mate' (welcome to the club) was recorded live at the German club Skalitzer Berlin August 24th 2013 featuring John Paul who does the introduction to the song . Anton Newcombe met the band online and as a fan of the band wanted to release a single on his label , 'Urine Mate' (welcome to the club) is an exclusive version of this track to this release, Fizzy can be found on the album Austerity Dogs released 2013 on Harbinger Sound.

    Jason says 'Fizzy' was inspired by the many thousands of psychopathic managers and supervisors that terrorise low paid workers throughout the world on a daily basis. I've modelled this song on one cunt in particular but it is by no means an isolated experience. As for 'Urine Mate' (welcome to the club) Jason comments describes in detail Nottingham's Mansfield Road.

    £10.99

    Available on 180 gram vinyl

    Like Iggy Pop's great lost Nashville record or the legendary demos for the Strokes masterpiece that never was, this recording is full of catchy courage, significant low notes, bedroom rhythms, hooks, and so on, all of which make  for an impossible amount of pleasure. This Swearing At effort towers heads and squirrels above whatever that was you were just listening to. --Camden Joy Swearing At Motorists has come a long way since it's birth as a poster for a fake band in 1994. A few months after the posters mysteriously appeared in record stores & music venues around Dayton, Ohio, Dave Doughman jokingly scrawled the name on a cassette of home recordings that he gave to friends, and the band was officially born.

    The late '90s found S@M releasing a slew of 7" EPs on different labels, and after getting repeated plays from  John Peel and favorable press worldwide, the band landed a contract with the then new label Secretly Canadian.

    They released 2 EPs & 4 LPs on SC, including 2000's Number Seven Uptown & 2002's This Flag Signals Goodbye, both of which were named MOJO Magazine's "Underground Album of the Year" the years they were released.

    Swearing At Motorists relocated to Berlin, Germany in 2005, releasing their last LP for Secretly Canadian, Last Night Becomes This Morning the following year before quietly disappearing into the never-ending Berlin night...

    8 years later, the band has resurfaced in Hamburg, Germany, with a new album titled While Laughing, The Joker Tells The Truth, to be released September 29 on Anton Newcombe's label A Recordings Ltd.

    Co-produced by Dave and Rick McPhail (of the legendery German band Tocotronic), the album tells the tales of those "los t" 8 years in classic Motorists style.

Recorded in 1994 on equipment borrowed from room mates Brainiac, this lo-fi gem was Dave Doughman's first experiments with songwriting and home recording.

    The vinyl comes in a gatefold 180 grm format.The conception that became The Third Sound was first formed when former Singapore Sling and Hudson Wayne member Hákon Aðalsteinsson left his home of Iceland and music collective Vebeth to the contrasting rooftops of Rome.

    Drawing from his roots of shoegaze neo-psychedelia he made slight of hand gestures towards country, blues and Kraut and recorded his first album with 60's aficionado Francesco D'Onofrio.

    Returning home he finished the album with guitar prodigy Hallberg Daði Hallergsson (Jakobinarina), and began experimenting with new mixing techniques being inspired by a theory known as The Third Sound.

    To materialize the band that would explore this concept, he moved to Berlin to form an internationally diverse five piece band hailing from as far as France, Sweden, Venezuela, New York and Australia idyllically representing the new eclectic Berlin sound.

    Sharing the stage with Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre) as well as Kid Congo in their first few shows

    Double 10, one 10 is Daylgo Pink the other 10 is Dayglo Yellow. This is a Mini LP  

    Weird Owl formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2004 and has released two full-length LPs as well as several EPs. Their presence and longevity in the New York psych scene has garnered international attention and they have shared stages with bands such as White Hills, NAAM, La Otracina, Hopewell, Earthless, Sleepy Sun, Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound, Quest for Fire, Spindrift and The Black Angels, including at the 2011 Austin Psych Fest.

    Healing proves that Weird Owl to be a constantly evolving musical entity, striving to present itself in a continually fresh light. The fuzzed-out guitar tones that were once synonymous with the band have fallen into the background, and a more ambient, textured sound found its place in the forefront. Recorded and mixed by Jeffrey Berner (NAAM, Heliotropes, La Otracina) at Galuminum Foil Studio in Brooklyn in April and May of 2013, Weird Owl's new musical direction revealed itself as an exciting and unique mind blast.

    The LP is on 180 grm milky clear vinyl .

    Coming shortly on the heels of their 2013 'mini-LP' Healing, Weird Owl are back in 2015 with a full-length LP entitled Interstellar Skeletal, once again being released by a'Recordings, Ltd.

    For the first time in their ten-year history, Weird Owl have kept the same lineup for consecutive releases, and Interstellar Skeletal reveals further explorations into the psychic canyons mined on Healing. Rather than scrapping the mission and returning to base for debriefing before attempting a relaunch, Weird Owl's strange sonic rocketry has ventured ever deeper into the vast starry expanse, and their transmissions back to Earth have grown ever freakier as a result.

    Their psychedelic postcards are written in the cosmic breathiness of the synthesizer and the alien ululations of a guitar tuned to secret frequencies, rumbling through the ages on illuminated rhythmic grids. Each track on Interstellar Skeletal serves as an interdimensional portal to free zones beyond the usual terrestrial veil, whether it is via odd jungle shamanism ('Silver Ziggurats'), the WWII bomber as spiritual metaphor ('Flying Fortress'), death personified as an albino lycanthrope ('White Werewolf') or the unsettling might of an extraterrestrial deity crashing a beach picnic ('God').

    Interstellar Skeletal was recorded and mixed by Jeffrey Berner (Psychic TV, NAAM, Dead Stars) at Galuminum Foil Studio in Brooklyn in the fall of 2014, following Weird Owl's first-ever European tour.

    Singapore Sling is a darkly psychedelic band from Reykjavik, Iceland. They are inexplicable and elusive but remind one of the drugged out soul power bands like Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. Their debut album, "The Curse Of Singapore Sling", came out in Summer 2003. 'The Curse The Life The Blood' is an anthology of their first 3 LPs.

    Their leader is singersongwriter-guitarist Henrik Bjornsson, is also known from the band Dead Skeletons . 'When nobody was making the music I wanted to hear, I decided to make it myself, instead of complaining and doing nothing. It was born out of love and hate. Love of various music from the past, mainly rock'n'roll, and hatred of the majority of the music around me.

    I had been making music for some years when I decided to form a band to play it live. That was for similar reasons. I named the band Singapore Sling (after the film by Nikolai Nikolaidis) shortly before our first show in the fall of 2000, which is officially when the band started.

    The first proper record, The Curse of Singapore Sling, we released in 2002. We named it 'The Curse of' because of bad luck and freaky incidents that surrounded the recording of the record. The curse went on and so did we. We've played all over the place and released a bunch of records with a bunch of different labels.

    The next one, Psych F*ck, will be released by Fuzz Club records in December 2015. The love and the hatred goes on, so we go on. And on and on.' Henrik Björnsson
