Unsurprisingly through their journey to their tenth LP personnel have changed, sound has evolved and band name has shifted from the originating band name Zodiac Lung –  yet the ten track album (available on bandcamp) discovers Monster Magnet as fresh faced to the studio as ever with a reverb soaked release with the first song to surface, which is the third track on the LP and the title song – Mindfucker.

The first song to surface from the album (available on bandcamp) Man Made Machine is best investigated in a room with only the glow of strobes casting colours of light through the room as the trippy soul-funk derived, marginally under six minutes, composition bends the knees and hips to angles unexpected.

Waves of sound immerse themselves within one another and just as the audience thinks they are on top of the dipping movement, so it sways in to a different direction.

Moonroof – Simple Fix – Single Review

The US dream-gaze quintet Moonroof released the single Simple Fix on the 1st.

Simple Fix is a just under four and a quarter minutes release that seems to be able to expand time as it flows through the room.

A song which softly highlights a noticeable bass drum and as longer stay readers will know I am a bit of a sucker for bass notes produced by any instrument, voice or, electronica.

There is a delightful contrast between the drum with its pressure waves of sound and the glittering guitars which flow inside each other as if tracing constellations in the sky, while a subdued bass guitar affords Simple Fix its undulating feeling as a subtle synth supports the dreamy voices.

The resulting output is a track (available on bandcamp) that, the further it evolves so, more deeply the audience drifts in to an hypnotic trance.

Hot Date

Hot Date is the mellow-wave duo of Nora O’Brien (Vocals) and Eric Carranza (Instrumentation / Effects) from Saint Paul in the USA.

On hitting play to their catalogue dating back to 2014 the listener finds themselves reclining on to a warm sunlit sandy-beach as the compositions drift through the ears, as though at a post after-party on a lazy Sunday afternoon sharing brunch with fellow late stayers.



Hot Date have the knack of turning their songs in to immediate good time memories as they thread through the ears with the evocative vocal caressing the earlobes with the subtle combinations of instrument and electronica buoying the fragile tracks in heart melting luscious texturing.

Their most recent release, which has surfaced this month – the five track EP Spaces (available on bandcamp) – is long overdue as it is over a eighteen months since their last proper release which was the three track single in July 2016 Three Sides To The Story, also on bandcamp, with an intervening Christmas novelty track in the same year, rediscovering their ability to create music in which the audience finds themselves drawn in to the rich texturing of the songwriting and delivery.

I merely trust it won’t be that nothing is heard again by Hot Date until late 2019.

The penultimate song on the latest EP is The Line.

Kyle & The Pity Party

The first song to surface from the four track EP, which is available as a stand alone single on bandcamp – My Car – floats through the room in washes of blurry reverb and expansive echo which cloaks the room in a slowly drifting mist as the composition surfaces from the speakers as though filtered through voile whilst a dreamy vocal gently massages the tensor tympani.
