The Dandelion – Seeds, Flowers and Magical Powers of the Dandelion (Blackspin Records)

This September (22/09/2017), Blackspin Records re-releasing the “Seeds, Flowers and Magical Powers of The Dandelion” in Europe & for the rest of the world in 300 pink coloured vinyl copies

“…After the Dolly Rocker Movement’s closure, Daniel Poulter under the name of “The Dandelion” released in 2013 an album of songs which became “Strange case of The Dandelion”. In 2015 and after twelve months in the making – at 3 different home studios on Sydney – the second full length album “Seeds, Flowers and Magical Powers of The Dandelion” comes to light. It was during the making of this record that Daniel handed over The Dandelion’s leadership and songwriting responsibilities to Natalie de Silver who can be heard subtlety coming through the mix and the albums main themes.

In this album as well, an obvious love of flower pop garage psychedelia of the mid to late sixties is used as a starting point but without these influences affecting the unique mystic approach & characteristic soundscapes in which Dandelion has built upon with their debut. Moving forward “Seeds, Flowers and Magical Powers of The Dandelion” is a collection of musical spells projecting images of galactic space travel, pagan witchcraft, love, ethereal energies & a blend of east meets west rhythms & melodies”. From start to finish occurs as the perfect companion to a late night psych-flower-pop party of an endless youth!…”

Holy Monitor – S/T (Primitive Music / Blackspin Records)

holy-monitor-frontThis February (17/02/2017), Primitive Music in collaboration with Blackspin Records will release the self-titled debut LP from the psych-kraut collective, Holy Monitor, from Athens, Greece.

“Bearing in mind that ‘’psych’’ is not an abbreviation of Psychedelia, what we have here, is a perfect example of a band throwing away the ‘’demon’’ word, which might lead you astray and presenting a debut album that is so much more. This five-piece from Athens, Greece is a joy to hear, as we watch the confrontation of so many genres and the unscratched exodus from the battle within. Instrumental ‘’Halcyon’’, with its effect galore presentation, leads to up-beat ‘’Nemesis’’ where the keyboards explore further a familiar territory of sounds. ‘’Bed of the earth’’ is a European top-notch psych tune, worth its weight like any remarkable song Fuzz Club Records, has ever released. Rural psych-folk (‘’The Vine’’), slow tempo-guitar pedals board driven (‘’Icarus’’) and another armada of up-beat compositions, find the final track of this record (‘’Cacti’’) as the culmination of a psych trip you most certainly wish to start once more!

Physical copies will be available in two limited editions of high quality clear-copper & blue-white marbled vinyl, 200 copies each!

Heaven’s Gateway Drugs – Rubber Nun (dizzybird records)

heavens-gateway-drugs-rubber-nun“This is the new release (09/09/2016) from “Heaven’s Gateway Drugs” and it may seems as a cliché, but while the album has a clearly psychedelic character and respective influences from bands deep in the 60’s & 70’s, the way given is a really strong blend of melodic psychedelia with an undefinable uniqueness. The feeling gained listening to the album as a whole is that created by amazing musicians who have take care in every detail their performance before the final result. The transitions among the different guitar sounds and the crossing variety of the front and backing vocals assigned unique during each song, causing a repeatedly album hearing for the maximum pleasure!
A complete melodic psych sonic trip from start to finish!.”
