Back in 2007 Pretty Lightning formed. The German duo tick off a long list of influences – from 60s psych and delta blues through to krautrock and drone – and the end-product is a heady dose of raw, twisted psychedelic-blues recalling an utterly visceral, mind-blowing mix of Oh Sees, Wooden Shjips and early Black Keys.

They already have two highly-praised LPs behind them and are now gearing up for the third effort, The Rhythm Of Ooze – due for release November 10th on Fuzz Club Records. It sees them dive even further down the rabbit-hole of stomping garage-blues rhythms and unremitting motoric drones to dizzying effects.

Listen to the howling and primitive garage-rock call to arms of lead single Willow Valley Blues, and the lysergic head-trip of This Machine Is Running below.

 

 

Brooklyn psych band Weird Owl release their new album, Bubblegum Brainwaves, tomorrow, the band’s sixth release in a decade, it explores themes of cognitive dissonance, darkness, and uncertainty and is highly informed by the current political climate.

The band have shared Invisibility Cloak, which pairs catchy melodies with dark undertones to create a mysterious, otherworldly vibe.

Stream it below.

 

Mean Motor Scooter are a fuzzed up Fort Worth quartet of frazzled, psych-garage goodness firmly rooted in the Texas traditions of The Butthole Surfers, The Dicks, and Roky Erickson with a tab of Scratch Acid.

Four cracking new tracks for you this morning. The latest from Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile’s much anticipated collaboration, another absolute shredder from Aussie duo DZ Deathrays, more potent pop-punk from Bully, and indie-pop God Ezra Furman’s new track Driving Down To L.A., which he describes as “This is a song of paranoia, escape and ecstatic ego-death. We decided to make a video about me and my angel companion escaping from modern-day Nazis. It is terrible to watch America’s white supremacist roots flourish like this again, not to mention the accompanying misogyny, queerphobia and anti-Semitism. I intend this song, video and my entire career as a protest against those attitudes.

Hear hear – enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

On the 27th October, The Hanging Stars will release the first single from their forthcoming second album Songs From Somewhere Else.

Taking their cues from both sides of the Atlantic – from the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes – Honeywater opens with a mesmerising steel guitar riff, which drifts into a shimmering melody framed by singer and guitarist Richard Olson’s honeyed vocals, then soars into a rapturous chorus before ending with an intense coda.

Have a listen.

  1. Angel Olsen – Special
  2. Screaming Females – Black Moon
  3. Hiss Golden Messenger – John The Gun
  4. The Cornshed Sisters – Running
  5. Torres – Helen In The Woods
  6. Deep Dark Woods – Fallen Leaves
  7. Weaves featuring Tanya Tagaq – Scream
  8. Kevin Devine featuring Half Waif – I Was Alive Back Then
  9. Laura Baird – Pretty Polly
