The Shake Well Brothers - Lo-Fi Blues Rock "Hanukkah Tabarnak"

Here’s a very cool psychedelic blues rock band from Montreal. They also might be from the past as their greasy lo-fi sound was born in the days of the Stooges. The Shake Well Brothers released a 3 song EP last Christmas Eve so naturally it opens with a song titled “Hanukkah Tabarnak”. It’s a chaotic instrumental to set the tone of the quick and in-your-face record. The got some great tones and riffs goin’ on but I’ll admit that even just a little bit of vocals would really tie the record together. Either way just crank it up and enjoy. - Kris Gies





Steve Gunn announces album, debuts psych-folk single

Steve Gunn is perhaps best known for his collaborations, having contributed his psychedelic-tinged folk guitar playing to tracks by Kurt Vile, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Michael Chapman, among others. But beyond that, Gunn is also a quality songwriter. His newest solo work—The Unseen In Between, out January 19th via Matador Records—continues the practice of those releases allowing Gunn’s talents to take center focus. The first single “New Moon” takes a 5-minute crash course into the guitarist's style and influences, beginning with tape-crisped acoustic guitar and floating vocals that welcome in tremolo-doused electric guitar and further adventuring into gentle psychedelia. Like much of Gunn’s work, it’s a drifting track that maintains soft edges and fits perfectly to light pensive moods. Watch the lyric video for “New Moon” below. – Cameron Carr





New Track: "A Whole New Jupiter" - Writhing Squares

Out of the Ether is the forthcoming album from Philly sound sculptors Writhing Squares, which is slated for release on January 25, 2019 via Trouble In Mind Records. Exploring an extensive futuristic landscape within the free jazz jam of “A Whole New Jupiter,” the continuous thump of synth and percussion drives this progression. That relentless ferocity eventually branches off into pockets of intriguing experimentation. A heart-racing unpredictability finds a heaviness that manages to maintain a grounded cohesion no matter how far the nearly twenty-minute adventure spirals outward.





Peel Dream Magazine brings imaginative shoegazer to Secret Project Robot on 12.02

Peel Dream Magazine is the brainchild of NYC-based musician Joe Stevens. His debut album, Modern Meta Physic, has soft fuzzy charm with a mellow, psych core. It’s an exploration of retro sounds and new age-y philosophies wrapped up into 13 hazy tracks. The band's name hearkens back to the legendary BBC DJ John Peel, and its sound is also beholden to the past; part Velvet Underground and part Stereolab, PDM captures the warmth of nostalgia with its samples of old-school late tv programs, while transporting you to an entirely new era through its psych rock and lo-fi musings. In the best shoegazer tradition, Stevens’ airy vocal melodies are often barely audible in the mix, buried under the fuzz of the group's distorted guitars. Listen below, and drift off. You can catch Peel Dream Magazine at Secret Project Robot on 12/2. Sara Nuta





Gardener

It’s getting harder and harder find someone who hasn’t at least heard about noise-rock band Gardener. From house shows to dive bars to PDX Pop Now, the band has found themselves on more than a few lineups. Most recently, they joined Nick Normal for a fall tour of the (mostly) West Coast. While their Bandcamp only has one song, “Self Rapture,” it’s uniquely polished and layered. The vocals are surprisingly gentle, even for a psychedelic song. They float smoothly over the high-wired electronic chords. Hints of gospel inspirations dance in and out of the song. The guitar solos are phenomenal, wonderful explosions reminiscent of rock legends such as Queen. The song pays homage to early psychedelic-rock acts while also showing us who Gardener is as a band. Make sure you give it a listen below.
