Possum – The Hills (Video)

Possum’s upcoming Space Grade Assembly record is gonna be a scorcher for sure. With unhinged guitars chugging out monstrous riffs and shooting out acidic leads like a pulsar blasting jets of hot astral energy, Possum has already proven themselves to be a fierce cosmic storm with this single track alone. Just check out the wildlyContinue reading “Possum – The Hills (Video)”

PSP – Cowboy Cathedral

Thankfully, we live in an age where the psychedelic/progg bands of Sweden are finally being recognized to some extent here in the West. Groups like Träd Gräs och Stenar and their other related monikers, like International Harvester, are starting to develop a similar cult following that Kosmische groups like Can and Amon Duul II haveContinue reading “PSP – Cowboy Cathedral”

The Choppy Bumpy Peaches – Sgt. Konfuzius & the Flowers of Venus

If there is one band that is enjoyably hard to pinpoint or define, it’s The Choppy Bumpy Peaches. Sgt. Konfuzius & the Flowers of Venus finds the Luxembourgian group concocting a doomy, mind-altering blend of hard psychedelia, gothic post-punk and dark space rock. This uniquely merged sound is perfectly represented by the album cover, withContinue reading “The Choppy Bumpy Peaches – Sgt. Konfuzius & the Flowers of Venus”

The Myrrors – Borderlands

There are some bands out there that you can rely on to turn whatever they touch into sonic gold. The Myrrors is, without a doubt, one of those bands. This Tucson area band conjures together here elements of esoteric folk, droning post rock and deeply hallucinogenic Kosmische Musik into something far more mystical. Kicking the record offContinue reading “The Myrrors – Borderlands”

Prana Crafter – Enter The Stream

Turn off your mind, relax and float down Prana Crafter’s Stream. From hushed astral folk that is not dissimilar to the likes of Fit & Limo and Linda Perhacs, to waves of loose Kraut-ambient improvisations that easily fit somewhere between the works of Cosmic Jokers and Popol Vuh, Prana Crafter (real name William Sol) hereContinue reading “Prana Crafter – Enter The Stream”

RIP Holger Czukay

To say that Can was and still is an influential band would be a major understatement. Countless artists and musicians from very diverse backgrounds and styles can easily pinpoint some inspiration from the German kosmische band. So losing both Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit, each a founding member of the group, in one year hasContinue reading “RIP Holger Czukay”

Stony Sugarskull- Gaia

Stony Sugarskull- Gaia As hazy as a dust storm and as beautifully warped as a Fata Morgana, Stony Sugarskull’s Gaia is a true modern acid rock gem. Hailing from Berlin, Germany, Monika Demmler’s Stony Sugarskull plays a gorgeously haunting and hypnotic dark psychedelic rock that is both mysterious and hugely enigmatic. Their ghostly sound isContinue reading “Stony Sugarskull- Gaia”
