ATARI TEENAGE RIOT

2016-02-28T13:27:58.277+00:00


"A cultural cold war divided along class lines, a new age of surveillance, heroes incarcerated in the worst conditions possible for speaking out against the military complex, a corrupt press core owned by multi-national corporations and raised to repeat soundbytes. This is the post-cyberpunk world on the brink of collapse Atari Teenage Riot’s fourth album Is This Hyperreal? is born into. Every track is an iridescent explosion of nervous energy requesting your attendance in Atari Teenage Riot’s campaign party of education and awareness."

OMAR RODRIGUEZ-LOPEZ

2015-05-15T02:39:41.135+01:00


"The sound of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and John Frusciante riffing off each other and bouncing textures over simplistic, yet defined melodies is what lies in this new Omar-related musical endeavor. The record goes back to the concept of a two-man guitar jam. It's one of the most basic forms of musical bonding and the intertwining of individuals' styles and musical thoughts over a set progression or song. However the process of two men recording their completely different musical abilities over an album of set melodies and songs, transcends above what is originally seen as a stripped-down, simple jam. (...) The fact that the jam-based, un-intellectualized approach of this album can create such a haunting atmosphere and create a vibe of musical complexity, is what is ultimately the most impressive aspect of this record. When two men approach the same song structure with different sounds and ideas, it can lead to magnificent heights."

FLASHBACKS #1

2015-05-15T02:48:53.062+01:00


"Listeners under the impression that drug music began with "White Rabbit" and ended with "White Lines" would be wise to pick up the first and best volume in the German Trikont label's excellent Flashbacks series - compiling 25 jazz, blues, and vocal cuts from the first-half of the 20th century, the set documents World War II-era vice and sin at its finest, deftly mixing radio hits with utter obscurities. The songs range from the benign (Gene Krupa's "Feeling High and Happy") to the explicit (the Memphis Jug Band's "Cocaine Habit Blues"), and while some of the selections are clearly reaching to justify their thematic inclusion - Bukka White's immortal "Fixin' to Die Blues" almost certainly has nothing to do with "fixing" in the junkie lexicon sense of the term -- the pacing and sequencing are dead-on, and even novelty throwaways like Harry "The Hipster" Gibson's "Who Put the Benzedrine in Mrs. Murphy's Ovaltine?" stand up to repeated listening in this context. Excellent remastering and liner notes (in both English and German) round out the package."

"(...)It's really wonderful and relaxing, but not as minimalistic as its reference point (Brian Eno, in case you aren't familiar with ambient music). In fact, it doesn't actually sound much like it. There's even got some sparse bass and guitar playing on the first side, not unlike what you would expect to find on a (very) quiet Mogwai song anno 1998-ish. Overall this is really excellent ambient/drone stuff though, and considering these guys have been releasing stuff since the late 90s I'm a bit surprised I haven't come across them before. If you haven't either, make sure you give this a try."

GUADALUPE PLATA

2016-03-05T14:38:57.278+00:00


"Pedro de Dios Barcelo, Carlos Jimena and Paco Luis Martos are cranking out screaming, ramshackle blues influenced by swamps, serpents and satan. In that order. Not just blues, but the kind of peeled-out, whacked-out riffs, licks and choogles that can fuel popular uprisings. Adding to the sinister mystique are the band’s videos and press shots, which look like something out of a snuff film. The blues can be boring in the wrong hands.
These guys will make you sweat a little."

"The Belgian band has released an album of gritty noise rock of international allure. For next to the obvious Cobain references the band has created a very versatile sound. Opening track 'When We Were Hookers' has one of those soaring riffs Made Out Of Babies would kill for, while 'Cozy Bleeders' on the other hand dishes out a druggy psychedelic trip. The production is raw, but fits the music, and gives the record an obscure, non-commercial edge that adds to the credibility of these manic rockers. (...) The band does prove to have established a solid base from which to start a nice underground career though. I am certain this rips live. Earplugs mandatory."

RIDE

2015-05-15T02:59:59.878+01:00


"The term shoegazer is synonymous with My Bloody Valentine, and even more specifically with the album Isn't Anything and their powerful follow-up Loveless. If one had to name the next thing that comes to mind when hearing the word shoegazer it would probably be Slowdive's Souvlaki. The albums Loveless and Souvlaki are usually considered the two-headed monster within the genre. There is, however, a third album, released a full year before Loveless and 3 years before Souvlaki, that arguably holds a claim to the first truly great shoegazer album. Imagine a less abrasive and more laid back Loveless, and you have Ride's Nowhere."

"Is Safe As Milk a classic? Absolutely! There wasn’t much else going on in 1967 that was as bent as this music, but that’s what makes it so significant.  It’s the origin of a man too stubborn for his own good and ignorant of the elements that make records into products.  It’s aural painting from a legend in the making and deserves a spot in any classic rock collector’s cabinet."

"The Inner Mounting Flame's ascending and descending distortion-laden mantra-like riffs and unison playing set a standard for jazz-rock that is still in place today. It's Indian influences merged with blues scales and rock rawness set the music world on fire. The musical attack was relentless. (...) Melodies and rhythms like had never been heard before. The distortion and the loudness could be insulting, and the speed of the playing was mind-numbing.

"Physical Graffiti is the true testament to the greatest rock group that there ever was. Unfortunate for the musicians they influenced who don't get it, Led Zeppelin was more than just the aggressive salvos of guitar, bass, drum and caterwauls of a singer with a blonde mane in tight jeans. Physical Graffiti shows that like no other, light and shade can be accomplished."

QUEST FOR FIRE

2011-08-23T18:43:22.194+01:00


'Lights From Paradise is probably the best psychedelic stoner rock album you’ll hear all year. (...) Quest For Fire has produced in my head a strong contender for the best-of lists at the end of the year and I really hope that you cats don’t miss out on it. It has everything on it, fuzzed out Rawk, some arousing psychedelia, 70s worship, Pink Floyd vocal worship, and just look at that album artwork again, the colours are so goddamn edible.'

In the Flat Field, this second disc, so loaded with alternates and outtakes, is a revelatory experience because it offers a portrait of the band struggling with itself, and experimenting, trying to eke out that certain sonic something that would ultimately set them apart and create so many imitators.

HAWKWIND

2011-08-23T18:53:23.746+01:00

Hawkwind Myspace'Doremi may not be Hawkwind's most renowned album, but it carries the same type of prog rock spaciness as their first two releases. Even though the keyboard playing is trimmed down just a tad, the introduction of Ian Kilmister, otherwise known as Lemmy of Motörhead fame, makes up for it. With Lemmy's hard-lined guitar playing and Del Dettmar's synthesizer stabs, tracks like "Space Is Deep" and "The Watcher" are infused with elaborate instrumental meanderings in perfect Hawkwind fashion. The longer tracks, both "Brainstorm" and "Time We Left This World Today," have Lemmy getting settled in the band's extraordinary milieu, but end up being the album's strongest cuts. There's a harder feel to the songs all the way through, with the guitar and drums coming to the forefront ahead of Dik and Mik's "generators" and "hot electronics." Doremi is the inaugural album for drummer Simon King, and with guitarist Dave Anderson and percussion man Terry Ollis now departed, Hawkwind still manages to muster up a firm intergalactic space-metal atmosphere...only with a more rugged thrust.'— Mike DeGagne, allmusicprogressivespacepsychedelic rockLord of Light, HAWKWIND allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="30" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/POSxIOilobs?rel=0" title="YouTube video player" width="400">mp3@256kbpsDoremi Fasol Latido (1972)[...]

'Beyond the 4th Door contains long stretches of melodic guitar improvisations, dark brooding songs that slowly build and expand to allow in layers of light. The album was recorded in their home studio and was created by recording more that two hours of material, mostly live, and hand picking what you hold in your hands. There is a free and open nature to their structure creating for the listener a spacious environment to explore.'

'Beautifully crafted, adventurous and inspiring - this unique band are always tough to pin down. Levitating between the bliss of the finest European avantgarde metal, epic song structures and earthy, organic post-rock tones, "Monstrous Manoeuvres In The Mushroom Maze" unfurls layer upon layer of beautifully textured melody that is driven by a bass drift that reminds us of classic early Lungfish in parts too. And all wrapped up in beautiful artwork painted by Toby Driver of Kayo Dot and mastered by the sound genius of Tom Kvålsvoll.'
