Video: Sturgill Simpson – Turtles All The Way Down

God, drugs and lizard aliens: rising Country star, Sturgill Simpson’s excellent new video for recent single Turtles All The Way Down has all these and more…

“Every time I take a look inside that old and fabled book/I’m blinded and reminded of the pain caused by some old man in the sky/Marijuana, LSD, psilocybin, DMT, they all changed the way I see/But love’s the only thing that’s ever saved my life.”

New From Blessed Feathers

New From Blessed Feathers

Blessed Feathers are one of our favourite bands who regularly appear on MM, so we’re delighted to share their new track Huaycan Song #2, released by Honeytone Records as part of their ‘Singles Series‘ project. The song was written partly on a concrete rooftop outside of Lima, Peru, and partly in the various bedrooms and basements of their friends across Wisconsin.

Needless to say it is a winner – have a listen.

Mad Mackerel Recommends… Brown Sabbath

Mad Mackerel Recommends... Brown Sabbath

Brown Sabbath is the alter ego of Austin-based psych-funk collective Brownout who delve deep into reinterpreting the catalogue of metal godfathers, Black Sabbath.

They remain true to the darkness, bombast and fuzz of Sabbath’s sound, while re-imagining the music with greasy Afro-Latin horns, hypnotic percussion and psyched-out, rare-groove improvisation.

Their debut single Hand Of Doom, featuring The Black Angels’ Alex Maas on vocals, is set to be released May 27 as limited edition, colored splattered 10-inch vinyl with The Wizard as the b-side on Ubiquity Records. The full-length album, Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath, is set to follow on June 24.

Have a listen.
