Walter Gross – Vestige

Experimental noise merchant Walter Gross has just released his new album, “Vestige”. Known for his instrumental soundscapes and DIY approach, the new album see’s Gross treading new ground, incorporating more eerie and distorted vocals into his music. This musical step forward evokes the industrial, post-punk sounds of Suicide, krautrock, shoegaze, experimental psychedelia, while still remaining firmly Gross’ own sound.
“Vestige” is out now on limited edition cassette and digital, a definite must for fans of interesting, uncompromising, experimental music.

REVBJELDE – REVBJELDE

Mixing up experimental noise, jazz, ambient soundscapes with pastoral psychedelic folk music, Berkshire musicians Richard Bentley, Roy Goss & Alan Gubby have created an enthralling debut album.
For every hint of floral British countryside, there is a healthy amount of electronics and dark undertones, giving “Revbjelde” a unique sound. Breathing modern life into medieval folk madness. Very British, magical and mythical, very Radiophonic workshop, and most importantly, very enjoyable.

Every psychedelic rock fan needs to get a copy of this album, you know it makes sense!

Madeleine Chartrand “Ani Kuni” (2nd Class Citizen edit)

For those that do not know, Madeleine Chartland’s “Ani Kuni” is an awesome psych, pop hit from the early 70’s. Chartland took a Native American song or chant and give it the psych, glam rock treatment.
Now in 2016 Brighton producer 2econd Class Citizen has given the track a new re-edit, but I would call this more of a remix. It’s not just taken elements and extended them, he has added a whole new feel to the track and it sounds fantastic! It’s up for download now and all yours for free, check it out and the rest of Mr Citizens back catalogue while you’re at it.
