Elephant Stone – Hollow Song Suite

Darker Time, Darker Space is part 2 of Elephant Stone’s Hollow song suite. The Montreal psych-rockers say, “with their planet on the brink of extinction, humanity scrambles to find a way to survive. It is a dark time and they look to the darkness of space as their salvation.” Pretty much sounds right up their street! Listen below.   And here’s part 1 in case you … Continue reading Elephant Stone – Hollow Song Suite

Marissa Nadler & Stephen Brodsky Collaborate on Droneflower

Droneflower is the new collaboration between MM regular Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky (of Mutoid Man, Cave In). It will be released by Sacred Bones on the 26th April. As might be imagined, it is a sprawling and expansive exercise in contrasts – the sound of the war between the brutal and the ethereal, the depths of darkness and piercing light, and the real and imagined. The … Continue reading Marissa Nadler & Stephen Brodsky Collaborate on Droneflower

MIEN – Black Habit

Comprised of The Black Angel’s Alex Maas, The Horror’s Tom Furse, Elephant Stone’s Rishi Dhir and The Earlies’ John-Mark Lapham, MIEN have announced their self-titled debut album will be released on Friday 6th April via Rocket Recordings.  It is a record that finds equal room for radiant groove-based propulsion and ambient dreamscapes alike – as comfortable with the murky hallucinogenic voyage of You Dreamt as the powerful widescreen sweep of (I’m Tired Of) Western Shouting. MIEN … Continue reading MIEN – Black Habit

It’s been ages since we’ve posted a round up of some of the new music videos we’ve liked. Here then is a Sunday treat for you…eight of the best. Kevin Morby’s title track off his forthcoming record, City Music nearly hits the 7-minute mark and challenges what fans may have come to expect from him.

The Great Escape – Day 3

A final day building up the step count trudging between venues. This time choosing to start at a free all day gig at Bleach which was not an official GE event, and was nearly 3,000 steps away, but worth it all the same for Nots and Nap Eyes. The former, a blistering all-female foursome from Tennessee, peeled what paint was left from the walls and the … Continue reading The Great Escape – Day 3

We’ve previously shared Sign from new EP Medicine and now we have I Run, another brilliant example of their insistent, pulsating psychedelia that ebbs and flows and mesmerises. Listen … Continue reading Man Of Moon – I Run
