Madmess – Madmess (2019)

“Madmess is a Portuguese trio. They carry in their luggage the famous “Porto Fog”, a dense haze, colored with psychedelic sounds with 70’s lightning and punctuated by heavy thunderclaps. They deploy their magic fog into the room to take the entire audience on a journey from the edge of a rugged desert beaten by the winds to the outer edges of distant galaxies.”

Lee Van Cleef – Holy Smoke (2016)

“Clearly influenced by bands like Earthless, Black Bombaim, and Electric Moon the three musician have clearly clicked in a serious way to have produced an album that is worthy of comparison to these three terrific bands. The music has that marvellous balance of tightness and improvisation that mark out bands who stand out in the stoner/ space rock bandlands; an area that can be littered with all sorts of debris that often means you cannot see the planets from the asteroids. Fee Lee Van Cleef, however, come through like a gas giant…heavy, fluid and impossible to overlook.”

Elder – The Gold & Silver Sessions (2019)

“Capturing Elder’s expanding dynamic and ongoing progression, The Gold & Silver Sessions is an experimental LP of ranging psychedelic jams that captures their expressive and nuanced development in a way a “regular” studio release wouldn’t. This is still the band who put out 2017’s crushing “Reflections of a Floating World,” but here you’ll witness them following their imaginations in an entirely new direction.”

Mind Mountain – Mind Mountain (2013)

“Liverpool heavy space Rock band MIND MOUNTAIN have accrued an impressive live reputation in a relatively short space of time. Dealing in lengthy instrumental prog/psych jams that feature a bewildering amount of improvisation and intuitive music-making, the three-piece successfully combine reckless abandon and pinpoint accuracy. The trio have so far recorded three weighty slabs of dense riffage and hypnotic grooves into the world, the cuts boasting the influences and love of the likes Hawkwind, Budgie and early 70’s Progressive rock.”

Earthless Meets Heavy Blanket – 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. The formidable foundation laid by drummer Rubalcaba became a jumping off point for Mascis, Clise and Eighton to explore their inner cosmoi for consciousness-expanding riffs and music-induced psychedelic experiences.”
