I am very glad to see new music from TBWNIAS. They always release quite experimental psych and this time it is an album made in lockdown, made from six different locations. The album is named ‘Unsemble’ and is different, and it is a good thing to hear their weird collection of experimental psych. Tune in and listen now.
The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol
The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol has been featured a lot on Fuzzy Sun with their epic, laid back psych sound. Their music varies from epic psych to drone wich is alway trancelike. Now their is an 11 minute track up for a listen called ‘Mt. Olympus’ wich comes from the forthcoming LP ‘Berserkir II’ I think and a split vinyl with Anunnaki, both on Cardinal Fuzz. Check them out and buy the vinyl on the bandcamp.

Sly & The Family Drone
Today we get the new track by noisemasters Sly & the Family Drone. I was really amazed by their previous 2019 album ‘Gentle Persuaders’, it was a really strong album that enden high on my end of the year list too. Now the new track is called ‘Shrieking Grief’ and is taken from their upcoming album ‘Walk It Dry’. The excellent album cover is made by Kazland. The new track is really heavy, the drums are intense, the saxophones and noise. Sly & the Family Drone is a band that keeps evolving and again we can hear how strong they are on this new track.
Last year in November and in February this year Hot Snakes have released two new singles. now we get the track from their 2018 split single w Mudhoney, released as a limited-edition 7″ for Sub Pop’s 30th anniversary, is being released digitally for the first time ever for one day only on Bandcamp on June 5.
La Jungle / Hyperculte Split
The is a new label that is called Hyperjungle and for their first release we get a split records between Belgian band LA Jungle and Hyperculte. Two hypnotic tracks for your listening pleasure.
The Band Whose Name is A Symbol
The hypnotic space rockers are back with an album called ‘Unsemble’ today. Recorded in 6 different locations on various devices by each member of TBWNIS during the months of March and April 2020. Track V recorded by Christopher Laramee (Wasted Cathedral) in Saskatoon, SK April, 2020 and herbed and whiskeyed by Jay Loos and Laramee. Again extremely hypnotic and experimental psych an spacerock.
KLÄMP is Jason Stöll (Sex Swing, Twin Sister, Mugstar, God Unknown Records, Bonnacons of Doom), Greg Wynne (Manatees) and Lee Vincent (Pulled Apart By Horses, Concentration Champ). KLÄMP makes fuzzd out noise rock, bass heavy post whatever. It is awesome and you need to check out the first track ‘Arise’ from their upcoming album ‘Hate You’ wich will be released on Godunknown in Spetember. The track was made in the shitty month of March 2020.
I have shared Naujawanan Baidar from the label Radio Khiyaban in the past, and I was so happy to discover this Netherlands based label because Naujawanan really brought me a lot of listening pleasure. It ended real high on my end of the year list between all the noise and heavy psych.
Now I immidiatly started following the label ofcourse and now there is a new release by a band called Carrom. This is an Indo-Canadian psychedelic rock band and they released their full album ‘Alter-Destinies’ today and it is a gorgeous piece of exotic psych. Buy your casette now, you need it.
Toronto based feminist metalband Lilim released their new album ‘𝔚𝔢𝔦𝔤𝔥𝔱𝔢𝔡 𝔊𝔥𝔬𝔰𝔱𝔰’ today and it is same intense stuff. ALL PROCEEDS GOING TOWARDS THE BLACK LEGAL ACTION CENTRE. Tune in now for some hardcore/thrash/just very heavy metal.
Two tracks that are noisy AF. Vangas released two tracks on Chunklet Industries on this glorious day. Tune in for some heaviness.
