TBL SUMMER 2021.jpeg

 

“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.”

ACID ROOSTER photo 1.jpg

 

 

Acid Rooster from Leipzig blast off into space like a textbook sonic joyride straight out of Alan Freeman’s The Crack in the Cosmic Egg. With a sound evoking the spirit of German kraut and psych rock pioneers, the instrumental tracks on their partially written and improvised albums often oscillate between slow-burning, spaced out jams and mind-bending climaxes that have earned them a stellar reputation for their captivating live shows.

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.

If Brian Wilson had dropped acid on the beach in Brazil and decided to record an album with Os Mutantes and The Flaming Lips, it would sound like this- all psychedelic pop Wall-of Sound and beach balladry.

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.

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.

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.

In equal parts frantic, considered, ear-splitting and melodic, the group take their cues from the early diy punk and post-punk pioneers to keep everything in-house; artwork, videos, performances and recordings are created entirely by the group and their handful of trusted collaborators, under a bedrock of heavy, bludgeoning, dark, post-punk. their debut lp finds the band advancing their sound, making subtle but experimental shifts in texture and tone. a must for fans of idles, girl band, john (timestwo) & ditz.
