Gnod – Easy To Build, Hard To Destroy (2021)

“It’s the sound of an uncompromising devotion to rapture through noise and repetition, a portrait of a band whose anarchic approach and raw intensity any other outfit would be frankly terrified to follow onstage. Captured in the hypnotic rhythmic drive and intimidating atmospheres of tracks like ‘They Live’ and ‘Inner Z’ is a mantric energy which take a jumping-off point from the Krautrock, Japanese rock and underground American psychedelia the band were hammering at the time, as well as the droogy nihilism of The Stooges debut. Yet these feral experiments reach far beyond into a headspace that acknowledges no boundaries, rock orthodoxy or genre constriction.”

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.”

Rostro Del Sol – Rostro Del Sol (2021)

“The debut Album from Mexico City’s Rostro del Sol, is a musical collage of Blues, Jazz, Funk, Progressive and Psych rock from the golden eras of the 60’s and 70’s, which offers unexpected moments, developed trough diverse sonorities & intensities as the music goes on, each song is intended to tell a history on it’s own, just listen and set your imagination free to find the essence inside.”

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.”
