This week has seen a few MM faves all share some top-notch new tunes via YouTube, and so here is a quick video collection from garage rockers Black Lips, psych-juggernauts Black Angels, psych-freaks King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, hazy troubadour Mac DeMArco, some classic old-time Americana from The Deslondes and some amphetamine filled blues boogie from Left Lane Cruiser.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Black Angels have shared the second track from their upcoming album Death Song, out April 21st on Partisan Records.

I’d Kill For Her is a typically brilliant slab of hypnotic, heavyweight psych – one of the best things we’ve heard from them. And that’s high praise indeed.

Watch the video below.

 

 

 

 

Since we began MM on Google’s chronic Blogspot, we’ve been posting music by muscular psych-rockers Black Angels, which means getting on nine or ten years now.

After a too-long four year hiatus, the band have confirmed details for their upcoming album, Death Song, out on the 21st April.

Stream the scorching opening track Currency below. It is a cracker.

 

Fuzz Club Records have announced the next issue of their Split Single Series, a regular release of 10” vinyl limited edition, featuring exclusive tracks from some of MM’s favourite artists. This latest one is no different, following on from Alan Vega of Suicide and The Vacant Lots, the next issue will feature The Black Angels and Sonic Jesus.

The former offer up the nearly nine minute epic of hypnotic groove that is Molly Moves My Generation and the latter clock in just behind that with seven and a half minutes of their own swirling, somnolent psych with Lost Reprise.

Check them out below.

The Black Angels have released a powerful new video for An Occurrence at 4507 South Third Street, which examines the suspension of time.

In the clip, a woman falls following a struggle; the result is an exploration of life and what can transpire within that final instant, as she sees the various ghouls of everyday life while spiraling down to her final breath. Inspiration was taken from both the song’s allusions to the Ambrose Bierce short story An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, which deals with similar themes, as well as iconic psychedelic imagery.

The track is taken from the band’s new offering Clear Lake Forest, originally released for Record Store Day and out now via Blue Horizon.

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.

Black Angels - Diamond Eyes

Here is a first taste from the forthcoming Clear Lake Forest EP from The Black Angels. It features seven new songs and will be released on limited edition clear vinyl on Record Store Day (19th April).

Diamond Eyes is an hypnotic, insistent, peyote-fuelled crawl through a parched sonic landscape – the simple fact is these boys do this stuff better than just about everybody else at the moment.
