Lasso is the solo (mostly) project of Tucson multi-instrumentalist/beat maker Andy Catlin. He covers about every genre imaginable throughout his seven release discography, including psych, pop, electro, hip hop, pop and rock. His newest release, Into The Lasso, is a kind of groovy, psych-pop meets hip hop beats hybrid. Check out the Money Mark-like album opener “Pepper”, it’s a great example of what this guy can do.

Into The Lasso is available now from Lasso’s bandcamp page. While you are there be sure to check out his other releases, you will not be disappointed.

The Staches

19 Oct

Swiss garage rockers The Staches pack a hefty one-two punch of chugging bass lines and distorted, psyched-out guitars on their new EP III. Album opener “Crocodile” (below) is a great example of their garage-psych goodness.

EP III is out now on Six Tonnes De Chair Records. I highly recommend you getting your hands on a copy.

Portland, Oregon’s 4-piece, garage rock stompers, The Reverberations’ debut EP, Lost In Time, is 3 solid tracks of fuzzy, 60′s era, garage-rock-psychedelic goodness. Stream their fuzzy, psych-pop title track below.

Thayer Sarrano

11 Sep

Thayer Sarrano’s dark, Hope Sandoval meets Victoria Legrand-like vocals are quite intoxicating on her newest release Shaky. Check out her haunting, country-psych-gaze single “Crease” below for a taste.

The Seeers

6 Aug

My first introduction to Virginia’s The Seeers came by way of the Windian Records Subscription Series #3. The Seeers’ contribution is probably the best of the series, so I was stoked when their new cassette release Early Songs arrived in my mailbox a couple weeks ago.

The Seeers play a swirling brand of reverb-laden psych rock with generous amounts of distorted guitars, and killer vocal melodies. Check out the earworm “Glacier” (below), it’s sure to bore it’s way into your brain and not leave for days.

Early Songs is available on cassette from Funny / Not Funny Records. It’s a must have for your collection. Enjoy.

Dustin Lovelis

18 Jun

I don’t know if multi-instrumentalist Dustin Lovelis intended for his debut solo LP, Dimensions, be listened to in a dimly lit room with the listener in a relaxed position, but that is how I have been enjoying this record. So turn down the lights, maybe light a candle or two and chill out to the dusty vocals and warped guitar of “Idiot” below.

Dimensions is out now and available through Porch Party Records. Enjoy.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra

26 May

Unknown Mortal Orchestra is set to release Multi-Love, their 3rd LP and 2nd with Jagjaguwar Records.  Multi-Love, showcases the wonkier side of UMO, similar to their 2011 Fat Possum self-titled debut.

Check out “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone” below. It’s a funky, head-nodding slab of psych-pop goodness.

Multi-Love is out now and available to buy from Jagjaguwar or your favorite record store. Enjoy.

The Noble Krell

27 Apr

Arizona’s The Noble Krell play an addicting brand of 60′s era, jangly, psychedelic pop that demands being played on repeat. Their new single Never Ever is out now from Hidden Volume Records and available to stream below via their Bandcamp page. Enjoy!


17 Apr

LABRYYYNTH is a new project from members of Dr. Dog and Golden Boots. Their self-titled debut LP is 10 tracks of stripped down, sci-fi themed, head nodding 70′s era pop rock. Check out the Moog driven toe-tapper “Traveling Strange” below. LABRYYYNTH’s album is available in all formats from PIAPTK. It’s also available on cassette from Burger and vinyl from Bleeding Gold. I highly recommend it.

The Prefab Messiahs

3 Mar

Massachusetts’ 4-piece The Prefab Messiahs began their short-lived time together as a band in 1981. By 1983 they had disbanded with only one cassette release, Flex Your Mind, under their belt.

Fast forward 32 years, an anthology release with Burger Records and some reunion shows, the Prefab Messiahs are back with their spacey-garage-rock-psych-pop sound in full effect on their new maxi-EP, Keep Your Stupid Dreams Alive. You can get a taste of their goodness below with the garage rock punch to the gut of “Weirdoz Everywhere”.

Keep Your Stupid Dreams Alive comes out on March 10 on cassette from Burger Records, vinyl from KLYAM Records and will also be available digitally from the Prefab’s Bandcamp page. I highly recommend it.
