Acid Baby Jesus premiere the second single from their new LP

Formed in Athens in 2009 the four-piece have two LPs behind them – their debut LP and demo collection Selected Recordings  – and after a long, three-year wait they’re back with the new album Lilac Days (buy here) – their first on Fuzz Club Records, officially released September 29th. The album sees ABJ at their best; their scrappy, frenetic garage-rock distilling a hazy, incense-scented mix of ’60s Western psychedelic pop, traditional Eastern folk and the scuzzy rock ’n’ roll sounds of Black Lips or Thee Oh Sees.

Electric Eye debut new single ‘Invisible Prison’

Norwegian psych a cut above the rest, say Shindig! 


Electric Eye will release their third album From The Poisonous Tree in December 2017, and now they’re ploughing through their new single, ‘Invisible Prison’, which they claim “sounds like a soundtrack to a movie that hasn’t been made yet, it’s villainy acid prog, it’s ethno jazz, it’s old school hip hop grooves mixed with the easily recognisable Electric Eye sound.” Listen and make your own minds up.

GospelbeacH come to the UK – California Fantasy Tour 2017

We’re super excited to announce that our fave Cosmic Americans (the best kind) are on their way to the UK. Our very own JON ‘MOJO’ MILLS will be deejaying the London show


 

Brent Rademaker (leader and founder) says:

“I haven’t played in the UK for 15 years, I was waiting until I had something special. GospelbeacH is very special to me as it represents not only my life in music and beyond but it really gives folks a proper taste of the California rock ’n’ roll sound. Come out and dig on the West Coast vibes and help us raise the spirit of Another Summer Of Love.”

 

GospelbeacH

Brent Rademaker of furtherBeachwood Sparks and The Tyde brings his new band GospelbeacH over the UK for the first time this summer. The touring band also features ex-Slowdive and Mojave 3 drummer Ian McCutcheon.

GospelbeacH play dreamy American roots music and their new album Another Summer Of Love is out now on Alive naturalsound.

On Another Summer Of Love, like Gram Parsons, Rademaker has drawn nourishment from the openness of Southern California and the sunny, hopeful feeling that epitomises his work is in full effect here. From the kick-off ‘In The Desert’, which slyly references The Jam to the jaunty swing of ‘You’re Already Home’ which pays a subtle tribute to Rademaker’s hero Chris Hillman’s ‘Girl With No Name’, this is what Americana is supposed to be and sometimes is not. Smart, informed, soulful, well-executed and avoiding the slick assembly-line of 2017 Nashville, this is the kind of record that true fans of well-crafted tuneful rock live for.
