ARKTIS - ARKTIS (LP/LONGHAIR)

On vinyl, this is a superb reissue of the self-titled 1973 debut-album by the legendary female fronted Krautrock unit from Bonn, Germany. The music is heavy early-'70s rock with plenty of fuzzy freak-outs. This full-length includes the classic track 'Rare Girl', which features 20 minutes of high octane rock jamming. Coming with remastered sound, this version includes a bonus track and also features an informative insert presenting the band story and rare photos.

ARKTIS - ARKTIS TAPES (LP/LONGHAIR)

A vinyl-reissue of the spaced-out second album by the legendary Krautrock unit from Bonn, originally released in 1975. The music can be decribed as heavy blues-rock with a garagey toughness, an emphasis on psychedelic sonorities and trippy hippie vocals. This edition comes with remastered sound and an insert featuring the band's story and rare images.

C.A. QUINTET - LIVE TRIPS 1971 (LP/MERLIN'S NOSE)

Legendary for its über-cult LP 'Trip Thru Hell', originally issued by the Candy Floss imprint in 1968, The C.A. Quintet was a truly psychedelic rock outfit based in Minnesota. The collection presented here contains rare live recordings from 1971. The material includes notable cover versions of the Cream-classic 'Badge' and The Beatles' 'And You Bird Can Sing', there's a long-stretched, mind blowing, fuzzed-out jam, and much more. Of course, loyal devotees of the band need this album. But 'Live Trips 1971' is also recommended to fans of The Doors, Hendrix, Cream, Mountain, Iron Butterfly, a.s.o.

DANDELION - SEEDS FLOWERS AND MAGICAL POWERS OF THE DANDELION (LP/BLACKSPIN)

'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 and a blend of east meets west rhythms and melodies. These are great hippie tunes with a '60s vibe by this band with members of The Dolly Rocker Movement!

FABER-JONKER, PETER J. - THE FABER BOOK OF BALLADS (2LP) (LP/SUNNY SHORES)

Peter J. Faber-Jonker is a Rotterdam based guitarist-songwriter well known for his contemporary classic pop-sound. 'The Faber Book Of Ballads' is an ambitious double album, best described as stylistically diverse pop-songs with a psychedelic twist. Through complementary tonal colouring by the three vocalists and Faber-Jonker's own instrumentation he realizes a kaleidoscopic album encompassing the total range of human emotion. The imaginative drumming and the firm yet subtle bass-lines are the backbone of this eclectic masterpiece that will leave the listener gasping for breath and yet begging for more!

MENTAL TREMORS - MENTAL TREMORS (LP/CURSED TONGUE)

Limited to 200 copies on SOLID BLACK VINYL. Who needs a bass-player when you can have bottom heavy fuzz so thick it carves through stone? Sometimes less is more, which especially is the case with hard hitting Australian duo Mental Tremors. On this debut outing the duo delivers canyon deep grooves, fuzzy riffs that go on for for miles, and melodic licks as sweet as honey (mind the bee stings though!). This batch of solid rock songs will have you rolling for a long time.

MOTHS & LOCUSTS - INTRO/OUTRO (LP/CARDINAL FUZZ)

The third full-length offering from these Canadian psych-rock trailblazers, 'Intro/Outro', is an organic recording that captures the current zeitgeist, reflecting global tension and uncertainty. While Moths & Locusts' music has always been woozily psychedelic, 'Intro/Outro' is also infused with a yet unseen darkness.

STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND - STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND (LP/GET HIP)

Issued on 150-gram black vinyl, the self-titled debut-album by Strangers In A Strange Land offers a tasty cocktail of '60s influences, including sarcastic freakbeat, harmony-filled psychedelic pop and world-weary folk-rock. Strangers In A Strange Land consists of Paul Kopf, Alec Palao and Derek See, with honorary Stranger Prairie Prince on drums.

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND - AFTERLANDER (LP/SUGARBUSH)

Consisting of Adam Cole, Phil Coyle and Nick Albanis, along with various friends and musical accomplices, Melbourne-based Trappist Afterland's use of unusual instrumentation and unique sound had resulted in another splendid psych-folk album. The material is rooted in dark mysticism and an esoteric sound, whilst also maintaining a tight, rhythmic and controlled mastery of song craft, similar perhaps to contemporaries such as Stone Breath, Six Organs Of Admittance or James Blackshaw. Fans of the aforementioned bands, acid folk acts such as the Incredible String Band and COB, and also of Michael Gira's work with Angels Of Light will find much to adore here. The liner notes are by David Tibet (Current 93).

UNIVERSAL TOTEM ORCHESTRA - MATHEMATICAL MOTHER (LP/BLACK WIDOW)

Now also available on vinyl, it's the 2017 full-length from the keyboard dominated band featuring ex-members of Runaway Totem. The music is progressive in the 'zeuhl' vein and showcases traces of Italy's '70s prog scene, goth, classical and gregorian music, and even opera! This is the band's third album.

YO NO SE - SOMA (LP/STOLEN BODY)

The debut-album by Bristol-based three-piece Yo No Se offers a tasty mixture of '70s psych, grunge and prog. This is a limited edition of 128 copies on clear red vinyl.

COBRA FAMILY PICNIC - MAGNETIC ANOMALY (CD/SULATRON)

Spanning 40 odd minutes, Tucson, Arizona's Cobra Family Picnic creates a fuzzy, blissed-out haze that touches on an entire encyclopedia of underground psychedelia. There are traces of the trance indulging Suicide, the post-Velvets go-go freakout of Les Rallizes Denudes, the smoky snake-song of early Doors, the pulsating locked grooves of Neu, and much, much more.

ELECTRIC ORANGE - EOXXV (2CD) (CD/STUDIO FLEISCH)

On these six long tracks, recorded during the years 2013-2017, Electric Orange presents its interpretation of modern, electronically-driven krautrock. As always, the album was mastered by Krautrock legend Eroc.

ENFANT - ELLIPSISM (CD/R.A.I.G.)

The second album by the 7-piece group/project active in La Paz, Bolivia, issued on CD! Featuring among others composers Jose Carlos Auza, Christian Aillon Valverde and Bernardo Paz, as well as two lead vocalists, Enfant recorded this impressive experimental prog work drawing much of its inspiration from John Koenig's compendium of invented words 'The Dictionary Of Obscure Sorrows'.

IL CERCHIO D'ORO - IL FUOCO SOTTOLA CENERE (CD/BLACK WIDOW)

The 2017 full-length by the Italian prog vets, founded in 1974, and still as vital as ever. Guests include Paolo Siani (Nuova Idea, Equipe 84), Giorgio Usai (Nuova Idea, New Trolls) and Pino Ballarini (Rovescio Della Medaglia).

An essential release for genre freaks!

MOURNING DAYZE - A WISCONSON GARAGE BAND-ROCKIN' SINCE 1965 (+DVD) (Bk/GEAR FAB)

Although Gear Fab issued a full retrospective CD of recordings by this cool '60s Wisconsin band, fact is, The Mourning Dayze is one of the more obscure representatives of the US '60s garage scene. So it's not impossible that even genuine genre fanatics don't know the group all that well. Nevertheless, even in case one isn't familiar with The Mourning Dayze, this is a very enjoyable paperback book. Written by the band members, it's full of hilarious insights, stories and irreplaceable pictures. Take a trip through magical times and read everything about the band's adventures! The included DVD contains interviews and footage, from past and present.

JACOBS, PAUL - PICTURES, MOVIES & APARTMENTS (LP/STOLEN BODY)

R.I.P. (USA) - STREET REAPER (BLACK) (LP/RIDING EASY)

Borrowing equally from '80s Rick Rubin productions and Murder Dog magazine aesthetics, 'Street Reaper' is a streamlined yet brutally raw manifesto of heavy metal ferocity, hearkening back to the era when both metal and hip hop were reviled as the work of street thugs intent on destroying America's youth. Throughout, Angel Martinez's guitar and John Mullett's bass are inextricably interlocked, sounding like a massive sonic steamroller, while drummer Willie D keeps the beat solid and simple for the most powerful impact. Edition on BLACK VINYL.
