Earthless Meets Heavy Blanket – In a Dutch Haze (2014)

In a Dutch Haze (2014)

“Backed by the best rhythm section in today’s adventurous rock world — Mario Rubalcaba and Mike Eginton from Earthless — the quartet stormed the stage for what would become an incredible one-time happening, leading to almost a full hour of some of the most mind-bending heavy psych imaginable. The epic jam session gave birth to shredding psychedelia and hard rock blues underpinned by the muscular rhythmic sensibilities of kraut-rock and the unbridled energy of 70′s guitar rock.

Agusa – Hogtid (2014)

Hogtid (2014)

“Love psychedelic guitar textures and vintage styled prog-rock organ freakouts? Of course you do. Well, do yourself a favor and be sure to check out this debut release from Sweden’s Agusa, titled Högtid, out soon from the folks at Transubstans Records.

Featuring members of Sveriges Kommuner & Landsting, Kama Loka and Hoofoot, Agusa weave plenty of swirling organ, jagged guitar, and nimble rhythms throughout this stirring collection of songs. It’s all instrumental, so don’t be put off by the Swedish song titles, and it’s all glorious stuff…”
