The Swiss psychedelic-rock band Dirty Sound Magnet release the LP Western Lies on the 12th of May.

Rather than taking the listener on a gentle glass-eyed ride, Dirty Sound Magnet are a band who are politically charged – and that of course is one reason why I enjoy their output, along with the quality of the work – as they cast wary eye on the world around and the listener feels they are on some sort of a nightmare of a trip as the dystopian template spins around the head.
From the twelve track album – Homo Economicus – which is the fourth.
The US downtempo project arms&legs is currently working on an LP.
A new track to be revealed – aliens inthe outfield – (released as a stand-alone single on the 26th on bandcamp) discovers arms&legs in a quite different mood to pieces previously featured.
Bowed strings make a first time appearance giving the track a more tempered layering, whilst, as the violin stretches through the room, the fragmented accompanying instrumentation, electronics and vocal allow the violin to generate a perceptible chill to the room.
The US psychedelic-garage quartet Savants recently released a two track split single with Tomorrows Tulips.

Savants have the ability to create music that from the first note pricks up the ears, then drawing the listener in to their magical carpet ride of trippy pleasure. Sneak E. Gardner (available on Narnack Records) once again attests to that knack of theirs.
