Bubbling up from the psychedelic tar pits of L.A., Frankie and the Witch Fingers have been a constant source of primordial groove for the better part of the last decade. Formed and incubated in Bloomington, IN before moving west to scrap with Los Angeles’ garage rock rabble, the band evolved from cavern-clawed echo merchants to architects of prog-infected psych epics that evoke a shift in reality.

Automatic-by-Logan-White-18-v2.jpeg

On Excess, Automatic synthesizes a new strain of retrofuturist motorik pop. The album rides the imaginary edge where the ‘70s underground met the corporate culture of the ‘80s – or, as the band puts it, “That fleeting moment when what was once cool quickly turned and became mainstream, all for the sake of consumerism.

The group explores and experiments with an array of influences from western psychedelia, jazz and indie to a wide-eyed obsession with music from the East. Using a vast selection of instruments from the Middle East and Asia, the band marries this with western instrumentations of synthesisers, guitars and drums to create a potent sound all of its own that they call ‘Exotic Psychedelia’.

Minami Deutsch is a Krautrock band from Tokyo.

Formed by Kyotaro Miula in 2014, they got their start playing live music on the busy streets of Tokyo. This led to their participation in Krautrock Night, a party hosted by Tokyo Psych Fest, and later a tour of Taiwan. In September 2015, they released their first record through the

RVRB-057-NIGHTBEATS-COVERARTWITHSTICKER_1024x1024_edited.jpg

On May 7th 2021, Night Beats – the Texas-born brainchild of Danny Lee Blackwell – released their fifth full-length, ‘Outlaw R&B’, via Fuzz Club Records. Made during the height of the California wildfires (where Blackwell currently resides), rioting in the streets and a nation in lockdown, the raucous technicolour rock’n’roll of ‘Outlaw R&B’ is a call to rejoice in some sorely needed post-apocalyptic hedonism.

Dhidalah_edited.jpg

 

Signed to Kikagaku Moyo's Guruguru Brain, Dhidalah started in 2007 as an instrumental heavy psych trio from Tokyo (Gotoh Ba, Konstantine/Dr, Ikuma Kawabe/Gt). The group’s name comes from the mythological giant Daidarabotchi, which was believed to create mountains and land with its enormous size, much like Dhidalah’s sound.

 

Their sound reveals that connection, which is often described as space kraut rock meets heavy doom.

“Rock and roll as it ought to be: off the hook, unhinged, ravaged by Satan, hysterically vital, both kicking serious arse and against polite society’s pricks. As undisciplined as No Wave, as steeped in comatose cool as ‘70s CBGB’s blank generation, and as stylishly ferocious as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.”

WITCH HORIZONTAL.jpeg

 

 

WITCH was the first band in Zambia to release a commercial album, in 1973. Blending the Rock and Roll sounds of the Rolling Stones together with more
traditional, African rhythms, they created a new genre dubbed Zamrock. During their brief, yet prolific existence, WITCH released 7 albums and was the most revered band in the country.

THE BUG CLUB_GLEN_MAY21_PHOTO CREDIT_ADAM WHITMORE.jpg

To say that the exuberant appeal of The Bug Club’s live performances and songmanship has been spread by word of mouth is a bit of a contradiction, as you could never sum up the music produced by these three groovy peas in a far-out pod (musically and lyrically interesting, deliciously individual, stripped-back garage pop songs, which shimmy, bounce and slide from joyfully frenetic guitar riffs to melodious harmonies) in anything like one word.

Holiday Ghosts, quit your corporate job, put laptop in shredder, walk away, go outside, remember what the Clean, the Go Betweens and the Modern Lovers once promised you: a life cracked open with fresh new possibilities. Three songwriters revel in lyrics descended down from Ray Davies’ 3rd person tales of landlords, bathing suits, shopping malls, the northstreet air. Based in Brighton via Falmouth on the south coast of England, Holiday Ghosts conjur the airy fun of Richard Brautigan if he had a band and was from England and wasn’t a hippie or a beatnick and he didn’t wear those big hats or have that mustache and his name wasn’t Richard, or Brautigan, and he wasn’t a writer or an artist of any kind.

The Italian duo Dumbo Gets Mad specialises in psychedelics for the sober, bringing experimentation together with detailed pop songwriting.
From analog hums to Mellotron-like whispers, retro vibes are revived without sounding rehashed. The pitch-shifted vocals, which might be the oddest sound here, beckon eerily over a drum beat that could soundtrack any number of hip-hop songs. It's an instance where contrasts just work.
