October Roundup – Son of Buzzi, The Happy Hour Band, Forgotten Bottom & More.

There is no silence this October. Only new music. So let’s dive straight into this month’s Roundup!  Son of Buzzi – The Ghost Son of Buzzi is more of a multimedia art installation than a band. The Swiss duo composes 12-string guitar fantasias to be the backdrop (or rather, a collaboration with) a variety ofContinue reading “October Roundup – Son of Buzzi, The Happy Hour Band, Forgotten Bottom & More.”

Los Mundos – Calor Central

“Is this a monster or an island? I’m seeing a beastly outline Horizons terrify. This sea will be called like you   Apparently calm A corpse that speaks Can breathe Tangled up in plants” ….this selection of translated lyrics from “Subterráneo Mar Jurásico” (“Subterranian Jurassic Sea”) perfectly describes Calor Central by Los Mundos in aContinue reading “Los Mundos – Calor Central”

The Other Sun – Horizon Between The Eyes

The Other Sun have collected a wide variety of vastly different sounds and moods and Frankensteined them together into a wholly unique creation, and squeezed it all onto this single tape. The Swedish group’s EP, Horizon Between The Eyes shivers with a barbed darkness that feels like a stranger to this reality. The band takes Soundgarden-esque, whiskey-soakedContinue reading “The Other Sun – Horizon Between The Eyes”

Kinski – Old Gold/Loved By You [Alternative Rock/Indie Rock/Stoner Rock]

When lords of fuzz, Kinski, release something new, you’d be wise to take notice. The band’s latest 7”, released on These Are Not Records, kicks like a revved-up mutant amalgamation of The Wipers, Hüsker Dü and Ty Segall. Released originally as digital-only bonus tracks on the Seattle group’s recent (and excellent) 7 (or 8) album, OldContinue reading “Kinski – Old Gold/Loved By You [Alternative Rock/Indie Rock/Stoner Rock]”

Zong- Zong [Acid Rock]

Like a towering dust storm blotting out the sun, Zong’s self-titled record is a murky and monstrous force that will leave you feeling very small and defenseless. Joining the ranks of fellow Australian acid rockers like Mt. Mountain, Hotel Wrecking City Traders and Smoke, Zong pushes the limits of fuzz guitar with a totally overdrivenContinue reading “Zong- Zong [Acid Rock]”

Hotel Wrecking City Traders-Passage to Agartha [Heavy Acid Rock/Desert Rock/Stoner Rock]

Australia seems to be the most fertile ground for all kinds of psychedelically-inclined music these days. Melbourne’s Hotel Wrecking City Traders is one of many great examples of this and for proof, just check out their latest record, Passage to Agartha. The record is loaded with brutally heavy cosmic slabs of instrumental, metallic post-rock epicsContinue reading “Hotel Wrecking City Traders-Passage to Agartha [Heavy Acid Rock/Desert Rock/Stoner Rock]”
