Ufomammut – 8 (Neurot)

There may be no shortage of sludge metal, or doom, or heavy psych, or space rock, but no one can do quite what Italy’s Ufomammut does, which is present a slightly different flavor of their cosmic doom sludge, and nail … Continue reading

Asteroid – III (Fuzzorama)

I’m surprised to find an album that actually takes the edge off Graveyard’s recent breakup for me. Not to say that these Swedish bands are interchangeable, though there is some similarity in “Them Calling” and some of their bluesy moments. If … Continue reading

Madder Mortem – Red In Tooth And Claw (Dark Essence/Karisma)

Seven years since their last album, many might understandably mistake Madder Mortem for a new band. An extremely accomplished one for sure, that started 23 years ago in Norway, toiling under the radar initially as Mystery Tribe. By their debut … Continue reading

Goat – Requiem (Sub Pop)

From their debut with World Music (2012), the mysterious Swedish cult collective Goat have remained anonymous, hidden behind masks and tall tales of their origins. A mix of psychedelic rock, Afrobeat and other folk music was a winning formula on … Continue reading

Bonus Psych: Morgan Delt, The Winstons, Sir Robin & The Longbowmen + More

A few psych releases managed to fly under my radar this past summer. Who am I kidding, there are probably dozens of worthy albums that I miss out on throughout the world. Anyway, here’s a few more albums worthy of … Continue reading

Fuzz – II (In The Red)

All hail the Fuzz. What happens when you holler as loud as you can? Unless you’re a trained opera singer, your voice distorts. It was inevitable in rock ‘n’ roll that the Gibson Maestro Fuzz-Tone (FZ-1) pedal and Red Rhodes fuzz … Continue reading

Golden Void – Berkana (Thrill Jockey)

Golden Void is one of a handful of bands that came out of nowhere and blew me away with a great, fully realized debut album full of brilliant songwriting that made my year-end top 13 in 2012. They had come up with a … Continue reading
