Wondering where to spend the next just over an hour? Tucking in to the fifteen tracks on the LP (available on bandcamp) will make it pass in the blink of an eye, merely be warned so will the rest of the day as the brain warps in to the trippy progressive frequencies, the clutches of which the nucleus accumbens is in hurry to escape.
The Australian psychedelic-rock quartet Sunrose released the EP Strawberry Wine today.
A twenty’ish minutes, five track, release (available on bandcamp) that transports the listener on to a journey in to the centre of a rainbow as the kaleidoscopic colours wend their way around the mind and absorb all processes of thought.
Sunrose deliver music that is best not approached when preparing for a business presentation, unless it happens to be one in which has dragons floating on the ceiling and glassy eyes as a prerequisite central tenet.
The English psychedelic rock quartet WUZI released the three track single Bozo Material on the 2nd.
Ensure you have a clear day prior to hitting play, as, as soon as the brain latches to the approximately eleven minutes release it will be seeking means to extend the hallucinogenic flows of moment by insisting on a top up of the feel good mood.
The guitars bend inside hazy folds of echoing reverb while bass pops in and out of earshot as it fancies, giving the songs their multidimensional shape, whilst percussion busies itself seeking out fresh grazing pastures and the vocal, akin to a wayward puppy exploring new smells reluctantly being pulled on a leash, adorably, snuffles the ears.
The first song to surface from the EP – Fire And Ice – is itself set for release as a stand alone single on the 2nd of February and is available on bandcamp.
The garage inspired core of their sound, which has seen them become a strong force in the local live music scene, in Fire And Ice is infused with a sitar giving the track a sound steeped in ’60s psychedelia and leaving the listener still tripping long after the just over five minutes song has tucked itself in to bed.
The Costa Rican psychedelic-rock trio Badsmoke and the Astral Haze will be releasing the three track single Triada of the Earthlings next month.

The first song to surface from the single is Ingolf vs The Man Cricketman (available as a stand alone single on bandcamp) which merely asks the listener to leave their temporal-lobe hanging on a hat-stand prior to entering the room to allow the frontal-lobe plenty of room to extract the juices of the winding guitar, which inverts in to itself like a foaming bath with perforated bubbles of reverb snatching inside escaping echoes, whilst percussion taunts the bass as it snaps at the calcaneal tendon with the vocal enticing the listener to the less empiric aspects of thought.
