Watch: Ian Ferguson releases DIY video for new psych single "Love Crime"

Southern psych-rock songwriter Ian Ferguson has released the new groovy single "Love Crime", along with its music video. The track -- which appears on Ferguson's upcoming debut album State of Gold (out on July 26th) -- channels a bit of The Beatles' late discography, or even the more chilled-out ideas of Black Sabbath. A more contemporary comparison would be Mac DeMarco, perhaps, as the music video for the song has a bit of DeMarco's knack for lo-fi and DIY production values. The Handicam-looking clip comes rife with low-budget aliens in cardboard triangle glasses, an old van, and old sci-fi film footage. It doesn't take much to make a fun video, and Ferguson holds fast to that ethos with the clip for "Love Crime". Watch it below, and watch out for State of Gold which drops later this month. - Will Sisskind

New Honey Radar LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Honey Radar's fifth full-length album, Ruby Puff Of Dust, is out now via What's Your Rupture?. Smoky, fuzz-forward, garage-psych emanates from the recordings. Enveloped in a tranquilizing haze, one’s mind hypnotically floats amid the clouds, yet a certain rawness remains. Just rememeber to puff-puff-pass.





Melt's Sour Fruit is Out Now

Melt has just released their latest album, Sour Fruit, via Halfshell Records. The album is freaky, earnest fun. The band’s burn out aesthetic doesn’t slow down the energy and enthusiasm they put into playing. Songs like “Snow” are jazzy and psychedelic, but they don’t fall into the expected rhythms we usually get from psych songs. The band twists when you think they’ll turn. They introduce a high note when you think a low one is coming, or slow the beat down at moments where it traditionally picks up. The change is very welcome. Other songs are faster, more surf-punk oriented. “Catch Me” is a great example, with laggy vocal distortion and passionate guitar riffs chords. “Catch Me” has the kind of tongue-twisting lyrics that are are a lot of fun to sing along to.

If you want a chance to sing the lyrics along with the band, Melt's tour kickoff will be taking place July 20th at the Ladd taphouse. Scott Yoder, Cry Babe and !mindparade will also be playing sets. You can find out more information on the facebook page here





07.06: The High Tides open for The Constellations at The End

Fans of the lo-fi hip-hop tinged indie sound of Mac Demarco or Anderson .Paak will enjoy the tunes of The High Tides, one of Nashville's new up-and-coming indie groups, led by Aaron Diebold, Aeris Hennings, Xavier Bond, and Jackson Weippert. The High Tides' blend of R&B and pop fits right in with the increasingly hot dog days of summer; their new album Thanks For Nothing, which came out in May, has a handful of tracks to cool you down, including the soothing opener "My Perspective" which you can listen to below. The High Tides will open a bill headlined by Atlanta-based hip-hop/rock band The Constellations at The End on July 6th. Recover from your holiday hangover, then go check them out. - Will Sisskind





Gabacho "El Recuerdo"

Gabacho is preparing to release a new single, “El Recuerdo” (The Memory), on July 11th. This follows his debut EP, “Some Time Ago…”, which was just released back in April.

The track has an amazing retro psychedelic sound and was recorded by Chace Wall (aka Skul.kid). This is in sharp contrast to Gabacho’s EP, which was sung in a mix of English and Spanish, and was a stripped down, acoustic, affair.
