I spend a lot time digging up music on the internet and in record stores. I share what I like here.

The Trolls - Mourning of the Day

I balanced out my record haul with thoroughly British psychedelic pop. The Trolls were a quartet up to the usual 60s psych rock tricks: vocal harmony, irreverent sound effects, on-the-cusp-of-corny strings, and alliterative lyrics. But I bought the record because every once in a while, like during this song, they take a darker turn, toying with practically proto-metal riffs.

I am Groot. We are Groot.

May Blitz - Smoking the Day Away

Popped into The Turntable yesterday to do a little back to school shopping, and I snagged an absolutely pristine German pressing of May Blitz's 1970 self-titled debut. A bit of a wrap-around way to get the album, really, since two of the trio were from Victoria, BC. If you need some proto-metal, psychedelia-drenched blues rock, look no further than this giant in the genre.

John Gallow - Dark Traveller

One-man-band John Gallow recently released this classic doom n’ roll album, and who could resist something with such a comic book psychedelic cover? The man behind all the instruments, John Gallo, really shines on guitar, weaving together throw-back fuzz riffs that sound like glow-in-the-dark Black Sabbath.

Lenoro - Long Distance Lovin'

Lenoro is a ballsy blues band from Oklahoma whose 2014 debut is a free download on bandcamp. Something about the cover guaranteed for me that this was going to be just-the-right-amount-of-scuzz blues rock, and boy is it. Other songs are one bourbon one scotch one beer mumble sing-alongs, but this song’s their guitarist’s soulful showcase.

Khun Narin - Lai Sing

Khun Narin is roaring folk-oriented psychedelic rock band from Thailand, signed to the label Innovative Leisure Records (think Allah-Las). Last year they enjoyed a bit of viral video success with footage from the usual last phase of their gigs, in which, after a midday feast, the band lights up portable generators and leads a parade toward their local temple.

The Fur - Ahn Dré

While it’s still just barely summer, dip into some deep-sea, outer-space instrumental psychedelia. The Fur is a band out of Belgium whose 2014 debut is a perfectly crafted, constantly evolving rock n’ roll odyssey. This is the song where I fell in love: track one. I expect big things from this group in the future.

Causa Sui - Abyssal Plain

A new Causa Sui release is always, always, always a must-listen. They’re something you can spin continuously for days and still feel as though you haven’t heard the same passage twice. Labyrinth rock.
