The Stargazer Lilies – ‘Door To The Sun’


Graveface Records dished up a fantastic psych / shoegaze crossover record this month; The Stargazer LiliesDoor To The Sun’. The Pennsylvanian trio has hit their stride on their sophomore offering; it’s a dynamic and woozy collection of dreamy rockers. Lead track ‘Summer’s Gone’ is flanked by some super trippy creations that at times melt into droning mantras. Changes are, you’re already all over it. If not, indulge yourself…

Tuath – ‘Existence Is Futile’


Umm, is this chilled psychedelia? Jazz? Space rock? Kinda… all of those and not at all! Tuath are here to smash your preconceptions. The band hail from Donegal in the Republic of Ireland, and their video for ‘Existence Is Futile’ is successfully evading any attempt at pigeon holing. Tuath are fresh from a spot at Dublin’s Reverberation Psych Fest alongside TwinKranes, Wild Rocket and the The Cosmic Dead. If this trippy creation flips your eggs then don’t sleep on their new EP ‘Existence Is Futile’ (out this month).

Landing – ‘Morning Sun’ [Video Premiere]


Landing return to their roots for the hallucinatory new video ‘Morning Sun’. It’s lifted from the band’s new record ‘Third Sight’, which was recorded specifically for El Paraiso Records’ Impetus series. The Connecticut-based foursome have crafted waves of reverb heavy psychedelia for almost twenty years; weaving between krautrock, folk, shoegaze and drone. ‘Morning Sun’ is a mature creation, it’s delightfully understated and yet immediately hypnotic. In other words, Landing know what they’re doing, this is stunning psych done right! Pre-order ‘Third Sight’ (out June 17) on limited green vinyl here.

Candy Cigarettes – ‘Selling Price’


‘Selling Price’ has an immediately likeable psych rockin’ swagger to it, with a vintage sound and some Beatles-esque vocal harmonies to boot! It’s the work of Portland’s Lane Mueller, who just released his self-titled debut album this month. Candy Cigarettes has a mix of feels on offer, it’s a great listen and available for download here.

Rollercoasterwater – ‘Umami Sounding Fireball’


I have no idea why Rollercoasterwater’s latest EP ‘Umami Sounding Fireball’ hasn’t completely blown up the blogosphere yet! Perhaps it’s because both titles are a mouthful!? Point is, these four tracks are brilliant. It’s trippy psych meets dream pop with plenty of gorgeous melodies to get lost in. Rollercoasterwater are a California-based duo featuring singer/samplist Chuckie Behrin and percussionist Robin Levy. Stream the mind bending EP in full below.
