Ryte – Ryte (2020)

“Since day one, the band’s goal was to play sophisticated, mostly instrumental Heavy Psych with little hints of classic Prog, Space Rock, Doom and plenty of other stuff. Speaking of influences, the band is not limited by any means as long as it sounds fresh and interesting and does the band’s initial idea of adventurous heaviness justice.”

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.”
