Latest Reviews - March 27, 2017
Apollo Suns
(Each Day A Different Sun)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock, Jazz, Instrumental
Sounds Like: Tuatara, Santana, Soft Machine
Apollo Suns are the latest instrumental psychedelic rock band to make its way into our rotation. From Winnipeg, Canada, this seven-piece jam band is comprised by a group of extremely talented individuals. Their musical tastes range widely from rock, blues and jazz to soul and even funk. The music on... Full Review and Video Clip
Glasgow Coma Scale
(Enter Oblivion)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.3 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Post rock
Sounds Like: Mogwai, Caspian, My Sleeping Karma
The name of this band and their album cover peaked our curiosity, so naturally we dug a little deeper to find meaning behind the name. The Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) is a common medical scoring system used to describe the level of consciousness in a person following a traumatic brain injury. Basically... Full Review and Video Clip
Bernelius
(Space Drifter)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Blues
Sounds Like: All Them Witches, Radio Moscow
Hot off the press, the debt album from Norway’s Bernelius entitled Space Drifter. This one is loaded with hyper-groove fretwork, distorted vocals and infectious melodies. The five-piece band infuse sporadic spoken word that blends familiar Scandinavian deep blues with more classic sto... Full Review and Video Clip
Last Builders of Empires
(Hades)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.9 of 11
Genre: Post rock
Sounds Like: We Stood Like Kings, Caspian, Mono
Instrumental Post-rock specialists Last Builders of Empires have just released this dramatic and rich sounding EP in Hades. The trio from Peabody, Massachusetts have a knack for bringing to light the cinematic side of the Post-rock genre. This 5-track EP was tracked live to analog tape... Full Review and Video Clip
Huna
(ST)
2017
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.8 of 11
Genre: Hard rock, Math Rock
Sounds Like: Queens of the Stoneage, Spickle, Don Caballero
Huna from Warsaw, Poland are a 3-piece instrumental outfit that throw down a blend of hard rock with elements of math and stoner rock. Think QOTSA meets Spickle or Don Caballero. Sounds great on paper, but we feel this one gets lost in the shuffle by the overwhelming amount of instrumental bands out... Full Review and Video Clip
Lizard Queen
(Third Eye)
2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.4 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Doom, Heavy psyche rock
Sounds Like: Om, Mindfunk, Sleep
At first blush we listen to the opener "Khan," a sludge filled Sleep inspired track and our mood frankly turns to doubt and skepticism. We look down at the tracks to follow which entails over 70 minutes of music and say to ourselves how the fuck are they going to keep our attention this long? Is thi... Full Review and Video Clip
Rumori Di Scena
(LentaMente)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.1 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Post rock, Math Rock
Sounds Like: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Pelican
We love the Post-rock genre. Our only stickler with this highly technical style of music is as you survey the landscape of bands out there, many feed off the same majestic melodies and tend not to branch out. As a result, we were very excited to have come across Rumori Di Scena, a foursome hailing f... Full Review and Video Clip
Lamagaia
(ST)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.9 of 11
Genre: Krautrock, Heavy psyche rock
Sounds Like: The Heads, SubArachnoid Space, Naam
Lamagaia are somewhat a  psychedelic mystery. The band from Gothenburg, Sweden has a lot of material to explore, yet there is not a ton of info out there about them. This two track Self-Titled album has just been released as a joint effort through Sunrise Ocean Bender and Cardinal Fuzz... Full Review and Video Clip
Daughters of Kilimanjaro
(Even Quentin Got Disgusted)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.3 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic, Progressive rock
Sounds Like: The Pineapple Thief, Chevelle, Oceansize
There has been very little excitement over the last few months on the new band front with respect to the progressive rock genre. We were pleasantly surprised to have stumbled upon Croatia’s Daughters of Kilimanjaro and their debut EP release. The three tracks which run approximately 20 minutes... Full Review and Video Clip
Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
(High Visceral Part 1)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.1 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Dot Legacy, Stone Roses
The debut album from Australian based Psychedelic Porn Crumpets (PPC) somehow infuses progressive rock precision while maintaining a euphoric psychedelic feel. This is the essence of what makes High Visceral Part 1 a very unique journey. The foursome have put forth an impressive debut that ... Full Review and Video Clip
