Psychedelic Horseshit are a gloriously messy band rooted in lo-fi punk experimentation, allthough they’ve kept a step ahead of the lo-fi scene by inventing a new sub genre they have christened ‘shitgaze’. Hailing from Colombus, Ohio, the Rust Belt capital MTV described as “ground zero for lo-fi punk, They began using a bunch of battered equipment, recording to four-track cassette, with a cardboard box for a bass drum and junkshop guitars and keyboards. All of a sudden, via a joke reference on their myspace page, ‘shitgaze‘ (the lo-fi genre-term they coined in satire of the early-’90s British shoegaze phenomenon) blew up and found them getting interviewed by MTV as well as being written up everywhere from Spin to NME. In 2010, a limited edition cassette, ‘Acid Tape’ signalled a move towards something more dazed and liquified, increasingly electronic.Signing to FatCat in late 2010, Psychedelic Horseshit‘s debut album for the label, ‘Laced‘, is due out in May 2011. ‘Puff’, the first track of ‘Laced‘, has inspired me to create this graphic scribble, and glued me to my tiny headphones for the last couple of hours or so…


Cloud 9

April 10th, 2011

While taking my daily walk earlier, I have decided to put Yo La Tengo`s ‘I am not afraid of you and I will beat your ass’ on. Some songs by this trio El Jezel, remind me of YLT. El Jezel is a shoegaze-influenced three piece consisting of members George Flanagan (guitar, vocals), Jessica Flanagan (bass, vocals) and Dan Killoren (drums) from Astoria (Queens), New York. By the way, did I mention George has a cloudphotomania?

Natureboy is the musical project of Sara Kermanshahi, a first generation American of Iranian descent. Along with long time collaborator/producer Cedar Apffel and joined by Rory O’Connor (Masterface) on drums and keyboards, Natureboy recorded their self-titled debut which received its official release on Own records in July 2010. Natureboy makes different kind of acoustic folk, dreamy and haunting, by using a perfect blend of Sara`s vocals, backgrounds, pads and electric & acoustic guitars. 

…and She sounds as good as she looks. Believe it or not.

She Keeps bees

April 9th, 2011

When you say No bullshit you talk about these guys, She keeps bees, a duo from Brooklyn, Electric, Drums and voice, just perfect. Nothing is missing. Just the way music should be made. Listen to ‘Focus’ and learn from them.

It`s been since Julian Lynch has moved to Madison, where he had been studying for a Master’s program in Ethnomusicology and recorded and released three CD-R’s under his given name: Born2Run, Birthday and Garden is Adventure, that he had been developing this heavily ethno acoustic influenced recognizable style of his. In 2009 and 2010, Olde English  Spelling Bee released two LPs by Julian Lynch, Orange You Glad and Mare, respectively. Julian continues to live and record in Madison, where he is currently enrolled in a joint PhD program in Ethnomusicology and Anthropology. On April 26th , Underwater Peoples Records will release his third LP, Terra.

The Reel Deal

April 5th, 2011

If Louis Vasquez is involved, I got to check it out. We have been Soft moon groupies since day one. Another reason to be curious about this project, is that it`s been released by Knitting Factory records, and I still remember the days while visiting The venue at the original location on Houston street, listening to all those friends and bands, who were part of the extremely active NYC downtown scene, great talents and musicians like Elliott Sharp, Arto Lindsay, John Zorn, Hugo Largo, David Linton, and lots more.

On Lumerians`s ‘Atlanta Brook’, I`m sure you`ll dig the cheesy Vasquez signature, this great vintage organ sound, the hypnotic grooves, and to the whole 70`s hippie psychedelic acidy atmosphere it puts you in. This 5 piece from Oakland sounds real good, and you should head over to the Knitting factory site, and grab a copy of ‘Transmalinnia’.
