Live Review: Splashh @ The 100 Club, 03/12/2012

2012 has been the year of Splashh. In less than a year they formed and established themselves as the foremost purveyors of ‘90s psych revival – a movement won’t be fading away anytime soon. Tonight, their packed out show at the legendary 100 Club feels like the final and …

Video Premiere: Technicolor Teeth – ‘Station Wagon’

SO, Technicolour Teeth put out a pretty awesome record through Stroll On Records earlier this year, Teenage Pagans - and you can read our review here. And today, they’re releasing a song from the album as a single.

‘Station Wagon’ is a lo-fi scuzzfest of gritty, grungy guitar music, …

Album Review: Allah-Las – Allah-Las

Allah-Las are a psych rock band who formed in Los Angeles back in 2008, priding themselves on their LA-centric, geographically enhanced laid-back style. Having released their debut EP Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind) earlier this year to rave reviews and the impressive approval of Patrick Campbell-Lyons, Allah Las …

Album review: Deep Sea Arcade – Outlands

We would have been surprised if Deep Sea Arcade’s debut Outlands had come from anywhere else other than the heart of Australia. After years of bedroom experimentation, the band have pieced together their majestic debut, which appears to be perfectly constructed for long road trips through the sticky heat. However …

EP Review: Peace – Delicious

Just like the juicy slices of neon watermelon atop some trippy murky-coloured water marble depicted on the cover of Peace’s debut EP, the four tracks contained within are individual segments of tasty psychedelia.

The Birmingham foursome have come true on the mass excitement that greeted  their initial online demos and …

Interview: Swim Deep

Swim Deep look like they’ve stepped out of a ‘90s Cameron Crowe slacker flick to lounge on your sofa and flip dejectedly through your magazines.

Album Review: Wild Nothing – Nocturne

American dream-pop act Wild Nothing, AKA Jack Tatum, made one of the most acclaimed records of 2010 in Gemini, a fantastic work of summery surf-pop. So this sophomore effort, Nocturne, proves something of a disappointment. Yes, it’s decent enough, but it’s far too similar a record to its …
