Crocodiles – I Was A Fly
Buzzing fuzz tones paired with a heavy drum beat and spit in your eye vocals give this track the perfect vibe to solidify the return of San Diego noise pop vets, Crocodiles.
Sauna Youth – Distracted
London based Post Punk group Sauna Youth bring a sense of nervous urgency on this track that could make any shoe gazing introvert want to bum rush the pit.
Cave – Dusty
Chicago based kraut jammers, Cave are back with an amazing foray into perpetual grooves. Layers of beautiful horn stabs and scratchy guitars lock into off kilter rhythms putting the listener into a jazz trance.
Fat White Family – Feet – Edit
London’s Fat Whites never fail to disappoint with their sleazy brand of multi-layered Innuendo gutter pop.
Rita Lee – Agora E Moda
Os Mutantes singer Rita Lee had quite the career after they disbanded but I don’t know if you could find anything funkier in her catalog than this jam with the backing band of here first four solo records, Tutti Fruiti.
Shintaro Sakamoto – Why Can’t I stop
This track makes me think of Hawaiian nights illuminated by a nuclear fallout as the sunsets, but the beer is still flowing.
Ashra – Ice Train
The perfect track to skim through Heavy Metal Magazine in a room filled with a heavy haze of Acapulco gold smoke in 1979.
Tom Verlaine – Flash Lightning
On his first self titled release, you can hear Verlaine clicking through the channels of a black and white television while dreaming in technicolor.
Aaron Lee Tasjen – Heart Slows Down
Amazing psychedelic Americana from one of Nashville’s most acid washed indie folk rockers.
Steve Gunn – Vagabond
A song fit for hitchhiking desolate highways in the blustering midwest autumn, when finally an old rattling Volvo stops to pick you up.
Asha Puthli – Lies
A truly strange and funky version of the J.J. Cale classic.
Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 – JBS
Lucid dream music from Toro Y Moi’s Bundick and twin brother jazz duo, The Mattson 2. Sill back in your chair and exhale slowly for this one.
King Gizzard & The Lizard wizard – Cyboogie
The newest from Australian space aliens King Gizz, takes a classic blues riff and sends it to Planet X on a spaceship driven by Roger Troutman.
Peel Dream Machine – Art Today
This band is hitting all the current reference points in my mind, mesmerizing atonal keyboard drones and distorted guitars with Nico-esque vocals give this track a hauntingly beautiful feel.
Paint – Plastic Dreams
Allah Las guitarist Pedrum Siadatian takes a walk on the wild side and paints a white fence purple.
Omega – Egy lány nem ment haza
An early track from Hungarian psych masters Omega that bounces back and forth between groovy Bo Diddley rhythms and straight forward fuzz grooves.
Jacco Gardner – Volva
The soundtrack to a lunch break DMT trip before it’s time to go back to work at Jim Henson Studios.
Onuma Singsiri – Mae Kha Som Tam
One of the best examples of the wealth of amazing Luk Thung and Molam music Thailand produced in the 60s and 70s.
Sam Evian – Next To You (feat. Kazu Makino)
Blonde Redhead Singer Kazu Makino adds vocals to this perfectly crafted, but strange pop song that makes you want to have an infinite picnic with the one you love.
Laraaji, Ajri OceAnanda, Dallas Acid – This Much More
Music from Mount Olympus sent from the gods to uplift the souls of mere mortals.
Angel Rada – Panico A Las 5am
Walking at 5am in a city you’ve never known, it seems as if the only people on the streets at this hour know you, and they’re watching your every move, taking note.
Al Lover – Subversive Science
I made this song for all those who can relate to the hours of inner turmoil every artist knows. Questioning if they’re doing what they’re meant to with this brief moment in time we have on the planet.
Oreo Jones – torment
Deep longing for the past never sounded so futuristic.
Panda Bear – Master
Panda Bear takes a vacation to a psychedelic beach town wear the pixelated
piña coladas never dry up.
La Femme – L’hawaïenne
Last goodbyes in Honolulu, Gainsbourg style.
