Dragontears – Turn On Tune In Fuck Off! (2010)(320 kb/s)

Experimental/Folk/Psychedelic

The populous Danish outfit Dragontears specialize in a brand of heavy psychedelic pop that you simply don’t find in the American scene. Not only is the group’s third album, Turn on Tune in Fuck Off!! (Bad Afro), blissed out and loaded with all the synth swirls, backing vocals, electric tones and whathaveyou that you can handle, it’s also undeniably pop-driven, with at least the first several of its total six tracks boasting catchy classic psych choruses that, the more you hear them, the more you want to hear them again. Fans of heavy Europsych will recognize fronting figure Lorenzo Woodrose from the long-running and still very much active Baby Woodrose, and Dragontears also boasts members of On Trial… and probably five other bands. Hey, there are eight people. It’s bound to happen. -continue reading… the obelisk.

Rotor – 3 (2007)(320 kb/s)

Instrumental rockband from Berlin, Germany. Since 1998 the threepiece group has developed their very own musical style going far beyond classic stoner rock patterns.

Their trademarks include very complex songstructures decorated with delay-, hall-, waheffects, and the incorporation of jazz arrangements. RotoR’s essence is an intense groove that pulls through their in general instrumentally arranged songs.

Weird Owl – Nuclear Psychology(2007)(192 kb/s)

Weird Owl’s 2007 debut Nuclear Psychology, makes good on the first half of the Brooklyn quintet’s moniker. The lengthy droning ‘Like 100,000 Sunsets’ kicks out the weird so authentically (especially that old warbling organ), it could be easily mistaken for late-’60s psychedelic space-rock. Similarly, ‘Thy Space Grows Long’ is so hypnotic in its continuous pulses and undulations of guitar feedback and unchanging organ notes; it’s possible the band may have been musing on a mantra. ‘White Hidden Fire’ opens with the rootsy guitar tones of an old Neil Young & Crazy Horse recording before reverb-drenched singer Trevor Tyrrell comes in singing and the song softly explodes into a sludgy storm of feral feedback. Just when you think the tune is about to end, it unfolds into continuous layers of complex arrangements and tension built in an antagonistic call-and-response between the guitar and drum kit. Amazing how a little tremolo and tambourine can make everything sound so ’60s — ‘Tickle the Invisible’ sounds wonderfully inspired by early Pink Floyd, though the cover art mocks 1973’s Dark Side of the Moon. -review from itunes.

Track List:
01 – Like 100,000 Sunsets (8:05)
02 – Thy Space Grows Long (5:40)
03 – White Hidden Fire (7:03)
04 – Tickle the Invisible (7:49)
05 – King of Flowers (e.p.s) (6:52)

Weird Owl – Ever the Silver Cord Be Loosed (2009)

It can be rather annoying when you receive a cd for review and there is no information about it supplied with it. Where does this band come from, who play in it, what are the tracks called, that sort of things. After some searching on the internet you will usually find this info, but that is basically a waste of time. When I found ‘Ever the Silver Cord Be Loosed’ by Weird Owl in this month’s batch, my first thought was “here we go again” until I noticed this was a cd on the Tee Pee Records label. Sometimes things can be delightfully predictable. I wrote down: heavy psychedelic rock, three or four bearded longhaired guys from California. Influenced by Dinosaur Jr., Screaming Trees, all Nuggets, Pebbles and Back from the Grave sixties samplers that can be found and perhaps a dash of Hawkwind and other early seventies hardrock as well. -keep reading in… lords of metal.

The Black Angels – Phosphene Dream (2010)(320 kb/s)

The Black Angels had some great songs on Passover and Directions to See a Ghost, but after a few tracks, they all began to sound the same. Phosphene Dream is a step up, if only for the little bit of variety that the tighter arrangements and genre-hopping provide. You can take it a piece at a time or swallow it in one big dose.

The Black Angels – Directions To See A Ghost (2008)(320 kb/s)

Name yourselves after one of the Velvet Underground’s most aggressively amelodic songs and package your second album in an op art burnt orange and chartreuse freakout and you’d better be able to deliver the psych-drone goods. What’s most impressive about the Black Angels’ Directions to See a Ghost is that not only does the Austin-based sextet deliver like few bands have been able to manage since Spacemen 3 split. -keep reading in… allmusic.
