This sedate psych popper ebbs with vintage feel, it slowly winds its way through various textures before bedding down in your head! ‘One Drum’ is taken from Heavy Deeds forthcoming EP ‘Light Lunch’, out May 14 via Old Blackberry Way (also home to Gospel Gossip and Pony Trash). The Minneapolis five piece have a release show booked on May 10 at the Turf Club in St. Paul, MN – if you’re a local!

Just when you thought it was safe to take a bath… BOOM! You’re album art! Such is the case with Towns latest EP ‘Sleepwalking’ – released late last year via Howling Owl Records (vinyl) and Cartoon Records (digital). ‘Mirror Ghost’ is just one example of the talent these Brits have.

Somewhat of a carny lullaby, ‘Soft Bodies’ is an otherworldly song, its borderline creepy but with a reassuring melody to pull you along! London’s Quimper have produced this ambient gem for a new compilation ‘Soft Bodies Don’t Bleed’ from the fresh UK label Soft Bodies – check out the rest here.

Sara have been pushing out psych rock goodness since 2009, the NY/NJ trio released ‘Horses’ earlier in the year and there’s more to come. I’ve always been a sucker for phased out vocals! Free downloads and more at www.saratheband.com.

Amazing song, kinda like having your head wrapped in a cloud for seven minutes! ’How Light Works’ (free download) is essentially an instrumental with some vocal effects that will drag you into a day dream. Note – not to be confused with the electronic duo out of the UK also called Linea Aspera.

Fresh sounds from San Francisco’s Modern Charms, ‘Someday‘ is taken from a forthcoming six track EP (12inch via Clue #2 Records / Cassette via Kram). The trio will lap up fans of 90s leaning fuzz rock!

Chances are this tune from Flyying Colours is going to make a fan out of you! Presumptuous sure, but these guys are belting out a noise that instantly pricks peoples ears up. Part psych rock, part shoegaze, the Melbourne-based four piece just released their debut video for ‘Wavygravy‘.
Flyying Colours – ‘Wavygravy’
One of the strongest albums of 2013!? We’re not even half way there but Norway’s Dråpe are going to be a hard act to follow. The shoegaze/dream/psych pop five piece have produced a brilliant debut LP in ‘Canicular Days’ (out now through Riot Factory). If the singles ‘Blue Skies‘ or ‘Memories‘ didn’t convince you – give this album cut a spin and see if it converts you! The summery sweet introduction of ‘Sister’s Eye’ slowly becomes an epic whirlwind. p.s. vinyl internationally delivered via Tiger.
