REVERBERATIONS - MILDER HIGHER/SUNSHINE
Based in Portland, Oregon and influenced heavily by their mutual love of jangly '60s psych, The Reverberations began crafting their authentic sounds in 2015. Led by guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Dave Berkham (formerly of The Cry!), who met rhythm guitarist John Jenne (ex-Sundaze and White Swans) and drummer/percussionist Ian Bixby (ex-Go Fever and Errata Note) while playing in a '60s cover band, the group subsequently added Cameron Mazzia (Dave's former bandmate in The Midnight Callers) on bass and Bob Fountain on keys to form The Reverberations. Inspired by a fictional psychedelic experience (with all the exciting highs and mellow lows), 'Milder Higher' marks a new, more complex direction in The Reverberations' sound. With interesting time changes, Leslie vocals and a reversed lead fuzz guitar, the song evokes bands as diverse as The Beatles and The Peanut Butter Conspiracy. Like the A-side, 'Sunshine' was recorded in early 2019 by the legendary Matt Rendon at Midtown Island Studios in Tucson and recorded to 8-track tape for a classic approach and feeling, with backing vocals done as three-part harmonies around a single microphone. The recent addition of keyboards to The Reverberations' lineup brings an essential psychedelic element to the song, and the band.

BROWN, ARTHUR -'S KINGDOM COME- - (SPLATTER) GALACTIC ZOO DOSSIER
Featuring remastered sound, here's a vinyl reissue of the classic 1971 debut-LP by Arthur 'Fire' Brown and his band Kingdom Come. Musically this is a stunning mixture of psychedelia, prog and electronics. Whilst not a major commercial success at the time, in terms of pioneering spirit this visionary work has become something of a landmark. The LP comes on multi-coloured splattered vinyl, including original artwork and a reproduction of a rare two-sided poster.

CLANDESTINE QUARTET - ONE FOR THE FOSSA, TWO FOR THE WOLVERINE
Debut LP from the Clandestine Quartet, bringing together Alan and Richard Bishop with Michael Flower and Chris Corsano. The quartet spent four days in the studio developing material and recording the seven pieces heard on this album (accompanied by two digital bonus tracks). They settled, for the most part, on something approaching a classic rock quartet line-up: Richard Bishop on electric guitar, Michael Flower on his signature amplified 'Japanese banjo' (an Indian keyed zither), Alan Bishop on bass and Chris Corsano manning the drums. Rather than a straight-up improvised blowing session, the LP strikes a balance between free-flowing spontaneous interaction and structured surprise, alternating between zoned-out group meditations and stop-on-a-dime unison dynamics. Effortlessly balanced between improvisation and composition, melody and noise, rhythm and space, the Clandestine Quartet is a fitting next step for this group of psychedelic troubadours, showing them drawing on their past accomplishments but never content to stand still.

FIREFRIEND - AVALANCHE (2LP)
Firefriend pull the threads that links the great subversive bands of the '60s through into the '80s and beyond to create something that feels like a bit of everything that thread ever touched - from the Velvet Underground to Spacemen 3 to John Coltrane, William Burroughs, Louis Ferdinand Celine and Jean-Luc Godard. Their sound doesn't rush to the pop hook or stall itself in the crunchy riffs, it glides above everything else in its own orbit, echoing the best parts of psychedelic, shoegaze, and noise by taking it all into strange new fields of bliss.

UTOPIA STRONG - UTOPIA STRONG
The combined forces of Steve Davis, Kavus Torabi (Gong, Cardiacs a.o.) and Michael J. York (Coil a.o.) resulted in a modular driven kosmische colossus of transcendent power. Featuring Davis' modular geometry and ambient structures weaving with Torabi's keen and skewed sense of melody, and York's various gifts for pipes, drones and fevered abstract, this work is a beguiling tapestry as likely to remind listeners of the countercultural benchmarks of Terry Riley, Cluster and Fripp & Eno as the later vortex-voyages of Emeralds and Seefeel.

ZARI - SAZAROTI
Traditional Latvian folk songs form the basis, and from here the six musicians of Zari explore exciting folktronica worlds! Zari are from the port city of Liepaja and they come from very different musical directions; from alternative rock and indie, and from electronic pop to folk. They want the often quiet, meditative folk songs of their homeland transformed into powerful, electronic and sometimes quite experimental sounds. Incidentally, the band name Zari is chosen wisely: it means "branches" and symbolizes the different musical branches on which the musicians are located. And yet they are all part of a single tree.

J'AI PEUR DES CRABS - COCOBONGO/CITY WALLS
JPDC is a project of multi-instrumentalist Emmanuel Alias of XS Studio. Its strange, instense and elevating mix of garage, psychedelic, blues, southern rock and glam rock make this release highly exciting, yet beautiful. The 45 embodies a dreamy sadness that feels like 'Heroes' by Bowie, while maintaining that powerful garage grit. Think of a blend of Natural Child, T.Rex, The Night Beats and The Velvet Underground. Two digital EP's have been released so far, 'MAAAAD' and 'Cocobongo'. From the last EP both songs were taken to make this 7-inch release. As they say "It gives you the desire to take Steve McQueen's Mustang and take on Route 66 like Kowalski drives his Challenger to vanishing point!". Limited to 300 copies.

The inner sleeves include an in depth interview with Rob and Steve, answering pretty much all there is to know about The Cigarettes.

SECT (USA) - BLOOD OF THE BEASTS
Vegan straight edge outfit Sect unites vocalist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left For Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance), bassist Steve Hart (Day Of Suffering), and drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, The Damned Things). The result is a caustic, riotous, belligerent style of vile hardcore fed by a boundless well of socio-political vitriol. 'Blood Of The Beasts' was recorded with Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. 'Blood Of The Beasts' is ten reflections on the myth of progress, the new old tribalism, the single face of all subjugations, the broken promise of automation, love, loss and obsolescence set against the dying light of a better tomorrow.

WARISH - DOWN IN FLAMES (BLACK)
Imagine if 'Incesticide' era Nirvana were crossed with 'Static Age' era garage-punk Misfits. You'd have sinister low budget horror rock with a visceral, twisted weirdness and bludgeoning riffs. Some might call it nightmarish, we call it Warish. Warish is a very newly minted SoCal trio formed in early 2018 that has wasted no time making its presence known. The band formed when guitarist/vocalist and pro-skater Riley Hawk (son of skating legend Tony Hawk) and drummer Bruce McDonnell decided they wanted to try their hand at something more distinct than they'd done previously. Their sound takes cues from a variety of cool underground sounds and twists it all into an energetic and exciting fist to the face of dark fury. Hawk's effect-laden vocals hearken to early Butthole Surfers and David Yow's tortured caterwaul in Scratch Acid. The guitars are heavy and powerful, though decidedly not straightforward cookie cutter punk; more like Cobain's and Buzz Osbourne's wiry contortions. The rhythms bash and pummel right through it all with aggressive force ensuring that nothing gets overly complicated and the horrors keep coming throughout the band's uh, warlike assault.

KINGS DESTROY - FANTASMA NERA (+7"/COL)
Following what seemed to be a definitive statement in their third, self-titled album and tours in the US, Europe, and Australia and New Zealand, Kings Destroy have stepped back and taken on their core identity as a band. Challenging each other every step of the way, they went to Toronto to work with producer David Bottrill (Tool, King Crimson, Stone Sour), and after paring down their approach and their songwriting to the most crucial elements, they crafted 'Fantasma Nera', an album that presents a wider creative breadth than anything they've done before. Limited edition on red/gold bicolor vinyl. 200 copies pressed. With foil-stamped gatefold jacket and a bonus 7".

 RIDING EASY
FIREBREATHER - UNDER A BLOOD MOON
Fire is what happens when a carbon based object is consumed by oxygen. That chemical reaction is fitting to the sound of Firebreather: The riffs are suffocating, the rhythms fast moving and all-consuming. It's so blindingly and deafeningly monolithic, don't be surprised to find yourself gasping for air while listening. The Gothenburg, Sweden trio has a streamlined focus on driving, symphonic riffs in the vein of High On Fire, Inter Arma and their tour- and label-mates Monolord. The guitar and bass tones are, quite simply, entrancing. Like watching flames engulf a forest, the billowing guitar tones are simultaneously beautiful and destructive, while the rhythms sway and lunge with vicious precision.

'Fantomes' by Horla is a musical isthmus, a frontier seldom travelled, a sonic corridor wherein animated bodies, sounds and dreams, instrumental and woody murmurs roam. Composed over the course of two years spent in Madagascar, the writing of this record bore witness to the insolent profusion and phantasmagorical incarnations of tropical wildlife, to strange rituals and animism.

FERGUSON, WALTER GAVITT - KING OF CALYPSO LIMONENSE 2
'THE LEGENDARY TAPE RECORDINGS VOL. 2' - 100-year old Walter Gavitt Ferguson from Costa Rica is a living legend, a Calypsonian of mythical proportions. Rooted like an old tree on the Caribbean shore, he has never left his home town to look for fame, instead fame came looking for him. Throughout eight decades his musical gifts have attracted people from near and far, contesting Calypsonians, travellers, musicologists, musicians, pilgrims and the president of the Republic. They once even moved a recording studio to his house, as he refused to go to the city. But many years before that, Ferguson used to sell his legendary self recorded cassettes to travellers and music lovers from all around the globe. He never kept a copy and with age startet to forget many of old compositions. A recently started, international "tape hunt" was able to locate more than 25 such tapes in Canada, Costa Rica and the United States and rescued 60 of his forgotten songs. Vol. 2 of this tropical treasure is now available, resurrected directly from original cassettes of the Calypso King.

RADIO BIRDMAN - RITUALISM
January 1996 saw the reformation of Radio Birdman after an 18 year hiatus. The band themselves were as surprised as everyone else by this development. At the time there was no thought of an ongoing future, only a wait and see approach with the focus being solely on a successful completion of the tour. After all, this was the tour that should have taken place way back in 1978 after their well documented break up and they wanted it to be as good as possible with no damage to their mythology. During the pre-tour rehearsal time, there had been discussion as to whether recording live material for strictly archival purposes should be considered but nothing definite agreed upon. When Melbournes Radio Triple R approached the band's management regarding an appearance on their Caught In The Act live music feature, a window of opportunity opened. This was an workable way to obtain quality live material without the headache of organising a fully blown live recording. Although there were no specific plans for a release, things went well and 'Ritualism' became the end result.

TEK, DENIZ -GROUP- - GOT LIVE!
The greatest moments of the Deniz Tek Group's June/July '98 tour of Australia have been captured on this CD. The sound quality of the original minidisc board recordings was clarified and beefed up during a sojourn in Montana of Nik and Jim at Dave Weyer Systems. The results are an excellent document of the band at their peak in Australia 1998... many tunes are highly improvised, never to sound the same before or since. Only a limited run was pressed so they may well become a highly sought after cult item in the future. The band never sounded like this in the studio. You just have to hear it.

VISITORS (AUSTRALIA) - VISITORS
The Visitors were part of a unique time and place in Sydney rock and roll, the likes of which no-one will see again. Venues were opening to what would become a flood of raw and energetic music. After splitting up in England, Radio Birdman's surviving members individually drifted back to Sydney in mid to late 1978. Hundreds of punk and loud high energy rock bands had appeared on the scene, easily going through doors that had been kicked open two years earlier. Many were copies of the style-obsessed English punk scene. Others slavishly copied their (often narrow) perception of what they thought Birdman had been. Some would say that the DIY ethos, not artistic genre, was the Radio's most lasting legacy. Most missed the point. Radio Birdman was a much more musical entity than the razor blade vanguard of punk. The band's demise - and posthumous growth of its legend - left a vacuum in Sydney that demanded to be filled. In a sense, the Visitors did just that. Thanks to this re-issue, the Visitors live on in the recorded sense. A band, or some manifestation of it, may one day play again. It's not been ruled out. Mark sisto (lead vocal and former Radio Birdman Minister of Defence), for one, is moved by the level of interest the band still prompts. "It surprises me and it's touching that there's been as much positive feedback from it as it has gotten older. Why? Perhaps it's because people were so young then, I suppose. Perhaps for many that it was a significant first for them - like your early teenage love that you don't forget? Aw shucks. And also, we were good."

 THE WORLD IS MY
VARIOUS - BOSPORUS BRIDGES 1: TURKISH JAZZ AND FUNK 68-
The TWIMO Records project is the result of 6 years of traveling and record collecting in the meeting points between different music cultures; North Africa, the Bosporus and the far eastern parts of Europe. These two first two releases explores what happened when Western music styles such as modal jazz, bossa nova, fusion and funk met Arabic folk music, tone scales, instrumentation and rhythm structures in the late sixties and seventies in Turkey and Egypt. "Bosporus Bridges" is a compilation of turkish jazz, bossa, psych, fusion and funk compiled by Lasarus and Roskow. Four hundred years ago Turkey was the centre that connected Islamic, Byzantine and Persian music and even at this time Haydn and Mozart fused Persian tone scales and colour of rhytm into their compositions. Modern Turkish music history begins in 1923, when Turkey became a republic and the leader Kemal Atatopened the doors to the western world. Musicians in Turkey first adapted the waltz, but it was the tango from Paris that spread widely and became popular throughout the country. Youth in Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara started tuning the radio to everything that was happening in London and rock arrived in the mid 50s. The first turkish rock music came from armybands under the leadership of officers, but when The Shadows emerged on the scene, the popularity of rock exploded, since Turkish people was used to hearing instrumental music. In 1961 the magazine Ht arranged the competition Altin Mikrofon where the contestants had to arrange a traditional turkish tune or write a turkish song and perform it in a "western style" with electrical instruments. Altin Mikrofon is the godfather of all the turkish rock, psych, funk, fusion and jazz that came after. Western records by Black Sabbath, Ten Years After, Beatles, The Who, Jimmy Smith and James Brown got distribution in Istanbul and Ankara and the scene exploded during the years 61-78 with names like Erkin Koray, Mogollar, Baris Manco, Siluetler, Mavi Isiklar, 3 Hür-El, Selda, Ersen and Mogollar. The blending of the electric loud, arabic percussion, horn instruments and arabic vocals with western jazz and funk rhythm, makes the sound of this forgotten scene unique.
