Kombynat Robotron “Kern” from Split LP

Arcane Allies and Kombynat Robotron Split. As they prepare for a joint tour they have released a split album. Kombynat Robotron are becoming one of the leading names in the German Psychedelic Underground. They combine acidic grooves and a motorik chug of fuzz bliss delivering lengthy blissed out space rock jams, imagine Moon Duo with grunge guitars and you are getting there. An extensive back catalogue can be found at their Bandcamp page

Dave Graney “The Devil Drives” from Point Blank
Another track from the Point Blank narrative show – originally on the Devil Drives album from 1997 – the last release from the Coral Snakes Band

Zong “Spheres of Nebula” from Astral Lore

Hailing from Brisbane Australia, Zong are a three-piece instrumental group focused on improvised cosmic jams with themes of psychedelic states, tribal rituals, gothic horror, alien encounters and medieval fantasy. Tying this all together is the groups explosive, intense and emotional delivery which deliver down-tuned and cranked amplifier sounds which echo Black Sabbath and Sleep. This is combined with neo-psych and stoner melodies plus space rock sounds in the style of Hawkwind and a vibe that recalls the seminal krautrock of Amon Duul II. Their ability to blend genres and sonically improvise together makes them a satisfying listen. Zong’s second LP Astral Lore is described as “an exploration of the subconscious experience on the astral plane, overlaid upon the consciousness of space. An oxygenated drift through voids, inhabited landscapes on superimposed worlds and primordial Lovecraftian echoes.” Zong is: Drums: Henry Bennett, Bass: Michael Grinstead, and Guitar: Zac Anderson.

Bordellos “Ronco Revival Sound” from Ronco Revival Sound

Ronco Revival Sound has previously only been available as a ltd ed CD release. Listen to the early Bordellos and catch whiffs of the Weeds, Cast and the Liverpool underground DNA that runs through their vast catalog of music that pays homage to the art that is English pop music from Billy Fury though glam, the Fall and all things that are good about “this sceptered isle”

Woolcraft “Misery Junction”

Arcane Allies “Nachtshwefel” from Split LP

Arcane Allies is a Synth Trio (Theremin/Synth, Drums and Guitar) formed in 2016. They are inspired by Psychedelic and Krautrock Bands such as Can, Neu!, Tangerine Dream and Moon Duo but also Electronic and Techno Acts such as Derrick May, Jeff Mills or Jessy Lanza and Laurel Halo from the HyperDub Label. With a new LP, the intriguingly titled Sun Ra Oscillations, at the pressing plant this release is the perfect primer for those new to a band with a unique sound.
