Telstar Sound Drone – ‘Dark Kashmir’


Apocalyptic noise, psych and drone converge on ‘Magical Solutions To Everyday Struggles’ – the new record by Telstar Sound Drone (out March 18 via Bad Afro). ‘Dark Kashmir’ is the latest public track, a trippy and progressive song that gathers barbs as it burns toward the six-minute mark, it follows the equally explosive ‘Drugs Help’.

Holy Wave – ‘Freaks Of Nurture’

Holy Wave return with their third album ‘Freaks Of Nurture’, a confident blend of southern psych, folk and surf rock. The fact that it’s all wrapped in warm reverb is an added bonus! The Austin rockers premiered the album via COS and it’s well worth a listen. ‘Freaks Of Nurture’ is out March 11 via The Reverberation Appreciation Society.

Sound Of Ceres – ‘Nostalgia For Infinity’


Karen and Ryan Hover (formerly Candy Claws) have rejuvenated themselves as Sound Of Ceres, premiering their forthcoming album ‘Nostalgia For Infinity’ (via Stereogum)! The duo has joined forces with Jacob Graham (The Drums), as well as Robert, Ben and John from Apples In Stereo. The result is an intricate blend of dreamy psych pop and lounge, delivered in polished and relaxed fashion. The record plays out like a summer daydream that at times drifts into dark waters. The record could have benefited from a few added spikes in energy (like the poppy ‘Side A’). Nevertheless, it captures the same otherworldly, enchanted feeling that Candy Claws did, and it’s a perfect place to hang your hat and dwell! Pick up Sound Of Ceres’ ‘Nostalgia For Infinity’ from March 4 through Joyful Noise.

Telstar Sound Drone – ‘Drugs Help’

Phroaar! Telstar Sound Drone have cooked up the monster ‘Drugs Help’ taken from their upcoming record ‘Magical Solutions To Everyday Struggles’ (out March 18 via Bad Afro). Something tells me that the ‘Drugs Help’ single might be a clue as to what those “magical solutions” might be! The Copenhagen psych rockers teamed up with producer Anders Onsberg (of Baby Woodrose / Spids Nøgenhat) for the recording; packed with feedback, experimental drone and dripping with atmosphere!

Ulrika Spacek – ‘Strawberry Glue’


Regular readers may remember Rhys Williams (aka Viscous Liquid) and his 2014 solo EP ‘Songs For Jealous Lovers’? A few years back Rhys teamed up with a friend to begin a new project, the psych outfit Ulrika Spacek. This time last year we shared their first song ‘I Don’t Know’, and this month the Brits delivered their debut album ‘The Album Paranoia’ (with high praise from The Guardian, Q, DIY, Quietus and NME). In other words, humble beginnings have ended in big things! Here’s their latest video ‘Strawberry Glue’ and the second single ‘Beta Male’. Grab ‘The Album Paranoia’ thanks to Tough Love Records (@ Rough Trade).
