  • Gnod – ‘Mirror’

    photo by KHOM visual Gnod‘s sleeve note for Mirror says it all – “Self-Revelation is a cruel process. The real picture, the real “you” never emerges. Looking for it is as bewildering as trying to know how you really look. Ten different mirrors show you ten different faces” – Shashi Deshpande. Janus is your friend,…

  • EP Review: Capra Informis – ‘Womb Of The Wild’

    EP Review: Capra Informis – ‘Womb Of The Wild’

    “‘Womb of the Wild’ is the first release by Capra Informis, a new band put together by the unnamed djembe player from Goat.” An enigma wrapped in a mystery then… I love the whole anti-celebrity air of mystique that shrouds the Goat collective, proof positive that you do not have to sell your soul to…

  • Video: Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation – ‘Take Me Beyond’

    Video: Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation – ‘Take Me Beyond’

    ‘Take me Beyond’ is the first single from Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation‘s debut album, ‘Horse Dance’ and was released as a digital single on 30 October. Every now and again something of this calibre comes along, and somehow manages to slip between the cracks of my listening and appreciative pleasures. In this instance, I…

    Album Review: Evil Blizzard – ‘Everybody Come To Church’

    Come Out, Come Out Wherever You Are… Little Pigs, Little Pigs, Let Me Come In… Not By The Hair Of Your Chiny-Chin-Chin? Well Then I’ll Huff And I’ll Puff, And I’ll Blow Your House In…. Here’s Evil Blizzard! With all the deranged, psychotic subtlety of Johnny’s axe through that Overlook Hotel door, these Preston, “Double Doomers”…

  • Album Review: Hey Colossus – ‘Radio Static High’

    Album Review: Hey Colossus – ‘Radio Static High’

    My epiphany with Hey Colossus came, as perhaps all musical epiphanies should, in the white hot cauldron of a live encounter. In my case, that was earlier this year at Eindhoven Psych Lab. June almost feels like a lifetime ago in some respects, but joy of joys – October brings us the latest Hey Colossus…

  • EP Review: Mamuthones – ‘Symphony For The Devil’

    EP Review: Mamuthones – ‘Symphony For The Devil’

    Mamuthones, in concert with their appearance at Liverpool Psych Fest this past weekend, cement their “Street Fighting Man” credentials with the release of their, ‘Symphony For The Devil’ EP. As the name suggests, Alessio Gastaldello’s cohorts take the Rolling Stones classic, liberally sprinkle it with their trademark, Italian Occult Psychedelic dust, and serve it up in…

  • Rocket Recordings – ‘Collisions 04’ Mamuthones / Evil Blizzard

    Rocket Recordings – ‘Collisions 04’ Mamuthones / Evil Blizzard

    As the title implies, this is the 4th instalment in Rocket Recordings‘ sold-out split series, to which their page attests; “The Rocket Recordings Collisions series has thus far seen luminaries like The Heads, White Hills, Oneida, Mugstar, Shit & Shine and Gnod locking horns against each other on psychic voyages to bold dimensions anew. The…

    Chromaticism’s Liverpool Psych Fest Video Diary

    My personal odyssey, initially posted to my Chromaticism Facebook page… (each bold text is a link to the band or to a video by the band)… The Seraphim bestrode the Elysium Fields of Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia last weekend, which sensationally kicked off with Purple Heart Parade… http://youtu.be/vFj4Q01XsQ4. Formes were new to me, absolutely loved their unique, doom tinged set… http://youtu.be/cSeLjCTz3iU. Pete Bassman…
