A little late to the latest release, A Place To Stay (available on bandcamp), which came out earlier this month – apologies.

Sean Lochridge from Austin (USA) performing as the trippy-gaze project Imp Of Perverse, who was introduced earlier in the year, releases the LP Imp In Reverse tomorrow.

The trio of Chance Allan (Guitar / Vocals), Jeff Klein (Bass) and Buddy Hachar (Drums), from Austin (USA), who form the trippy-rock band Greenbeard released the three track single Onward, Pillager on the 22nd.
