Lorelle Meets The Obsolete – ‘La Distinción’

lorelle-meets-the-obsolete-distance

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete are back with ‘La Distinción’, a prowling psych rocker that would sound perfectly at home in a Tarantino movie. They capture so much vintage analogue warmth, like there’s already dust and ash on the reel! The wailing guitar solo towards the end is the cherry on top. It’s taken from the Mexican duo’s forthcoming fourth album ‘Distance’, out September 16 via Captcha Records (US) / Sonic Cathedral (UK/EU). The album was an international affair; recorded at home in Mexico, then mixed in Chicago by Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas), and mastered in Melbourne by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring).

Deadpan Interference – ‘I Like the Taste (of Ugly Women)’

deadpan-interference-artwork

Deadpan Interference have delivered a stormy rock monolith by way of their debut EP (out now via Drone Recordings)! This is something for psych and shoegaze fans, as you’ll see from the tune ‘I Like the Taste (of Ugly Women)’. The foursome have only been at it since 2013, grabbing the attention of fans from the underground Danish scene. Understandably so, it’s an accomplished debut!

Ulrika Spacek – ‘I Don’t Know’

ulrika-spacek

Regular readers will be familiar with the work of British solo artist Rhys Williams, aka Viscous Liquid. Last year he delivered the EP ‘Songs For Jealous Lovers‘, a spacey pairing of surf rock and shoegaze. This week we can reveal his new project, Ulrika Spacek. The duo’s debut single ‘I Don’t Know’ is a lo-fi psych rocker with dreamy vocal harmonies and liberal phaser use! Ulrika Spacek have already recorded much of their debut album, more soon.

Medicine – ‘Turning’

medicine-turning-artwork

Veteran rockers Medicine will release their new album ‘Home Everywhere’ on October 28 through Captured Tracks. The San Fernando trio have posted the lead single ‘Turning’, an experimental psych pop piece. Following the release of Medicine’s reunion album ‘To The Happy Few’ last year, the group continued recording. The result is nine fresh tracks, part Brazilian-inspired noise pop and part experimental drones! Guitarist Brad Laner tells Exclaim! about the title track, an “11-and-a-half-minute, multi-part album-within-an-album which begins as a sprightly celebration of domestic bliss and ends with a comely invitation to leave the planet.”

Lorelle Meets the Obsolete – ‘Live In Mexico City’

lorelle meets the obsolete-tour ep

Hard times over at Captcha Records – “After a massive leak in the Captcha HQ last summer we were left with tons of damage and zero insurance coverage (due to **** policy).” The silver lining for supporters is that the Captcha crew are making lemonade out of lemons by offering a super limited stock of Lorelle Meets The Obsolete ‘Live In Mexico City‘ on vinyl for a steal (they aren’t even soggy!). Not only is it a second chance at the previously sold-out recording by a couple of our favorite psych rockers, it comes with the warm and fuzzies of seeing Captcha through a spot of bad luck.
