The second single from Neil Halstead’s ‘Palindrome Hunches’ is out next week (May 13). The lead track is a lovely new countrified version of album highlight ‘Spin The Bottle’, as premiered on The Line Of Best Fit recently.
We’re very pleased to announce that Nick Talbot, aka Gravenhurst, will be playing an intimate solo show for us on May 24. The show takes place in the beautiful Heath Street Baptist Church in London’s leafy Hampstead.
Here’s our latest mix, broadcast on Strangeways Radio last night and inspired by our recent ‘Psych For Sore Eyes’ EP. It’s a full hour of droney goodness, featuring the likes of Psychic Ills, Spacemen 3 and Wooden Shjips.
Lorelle Meets The Obsolete are my favourite band in the world right now. They are a duo (Lorelle and The Obsolete, naturally) from Guadalajara, Mexico, but manage to sound like all of the best bands rolled into one.
Finally we can reveal the ‘Psych For Sore Eyes’ EP in its full glory. When we announced it late last year we said it would be the best-looking record of 2013 and we weren’t lying. The good folk of Heretic have done an incredible job.
This is the front cover of the best-looking record you will see next year. It’s the ‘Psych For Sore Eyes’ EP, it is coming out on February 18, 2013 and it contains six tracks of modern psychedelia, all mastered by Sonic Boom.
After turning the spotlight on other albums from this year, it seems only fair that we blow our own trumpet a little bit. Here’s a set on the new fangled SoundCloud featuring a track from every one of our 11 releases in 2012.
Everyone else is doing it, so we thought it was about time to wade in with our 20 favourite non-Sonic Cathedral albums of 2012. In no particular order here are the first 10 – the others will be revealed tomorrow.
