Sunn Trio – Electric Esoterica (2020)

“Enter Sunn Trio. A punk trio that is influenced by Middle Eastern psych, free jazz, and improvisation… trio that composes music that challenges every notion of what rock, punk, or psych can be; however, at the same time, the music is crafted with improvisational focus and middle eastern influence that should be the basis for this generation’s new music… The music has an import that shows a deference to eastern music, while expressing a freedom that isn’t present in any modern music.”

Anthroprophh – German Oak (2020)

“Side One is a 17 minute Freak Out / Meltdown / Brain Buzz of a mother fucker – Imagine a star collapsing in upon itself and I reckon you have the sound of German Oak.  Side Two is 4 tracks all melded together – 2 tracks of hypnotic minimal electronic bliss meld into a Tacoma like finger picking hoedown before the final track brings the spirit of Skip/Syd/Roky for a hauntingly mesmeric end. STUNNING.”

Dire Wolves (Just Exactly Perfect Sisters Band) – Flow & Heady (2020)

“Dire Wolves (Just Exactly Perfect Sisters Band) put forth a sound of ecstatic improvisation, each member documenting coordinate points in the higher dimensions of cosmic free-rock. The music lies somewhere near the nebulous intersection of psych, kosmische beat and spiritual jazz. These are exploratory journeys, transportive trance-based experiments in vertical listening, totally collaborative and often forming spontaneous compositions. The focus is more about feeling than any specific approach to playing. Psychic rock for the mind and body: breathe deep and grow towards that light, dig.”

Karaba – Live In Vienna (2020)

“Five young guys from Munich. Skilled and tight on their instruments and deeply rooted in the heritage of all kind of wild forms of jazz, krautrock and psychedelic music. The kids began to jam together when starting to study music in 2012. Being from Munich, a town where legendary Kraut Rock bands like Amon Düül, Guru Guru and Embryo came from, the Karaba guys are obviously influenced by these german kraut and psychedelic sounds.”
