Playlist for a Crazy Monday

Source: New York Music Daily

You know this blog’s steez: busy day, no time for a whole album? How about a playlist of some of the coolest singles to come over the transom lately? Click the links for each track, ad-free (at least at most recent listen – youtube is problematic like that).

Over a pretty standard Rich James-style funk groove, The Porchistas’ Mr. Chump raises a middle finger to the American Boris Yeltsin, the “draft-dodging scum” who “beats on little girls and cheats on Monopoly.” Then the girlie chorus chimes in. “Eats shit!”

What’s left of legendary Detroit band Death – the African-American Stooges ...

Wolfmother @ Webster Hall, 3/3/16

All aboard the gypsy caravan for a one way ticket into the void. The mighty Wolfmother took Webster Hall like a proverbial maternal wolf protecting her young by aiming right for the jugular of the offender and not letting go. In layman’s terms, Wolfmother is a band that absolutely needs to be seen live. From the thunderous backbeat provided by drummer Alex Carapetis (of NIN and Voidz fame) to the Iommic riffing and Plant-esque wailing of frontman Andrew Stockdale, the band was in the tipest of topest shape which could be felt ...

Pentagram, Satan’s Satyrs and Electric Citizen @ Underground Arts.

Source: Jump Philly

Text by Chad Sims. Images by Jason Melcher. Pentagram brought back that good, old rock ‘n’ roll last Wednesday night at Underground Arts. Despite some members having played for decades, Pentagram can still send shivers down your spine. Singer Bobby Liebling is in a league of his own. If you saw him on the street […]

Review and photos by Sara Patrick

The documentary Last Days Here provides a glimpse into the life of Pentagram singer Bobby Libeling during the ‘00s as he struggled to ditch his drug habit and revive his band. In the film, he emerges triumphant, but the happy ending didn’t quite stick: recent rumblings indicate that Bobby is now separated from his wife, and his parents are ill and weakened by age. Given this instability and his erratic nature I wasn’t sure what to expect from the opening night of Pentagram’s tour on Wednesday night. Would we see an underground hero of ...

Ruby the Hatchet Headline a Killer Triplebill at the Acheron

Source: New York Music Daily

One thing that jumps out at you when you take a look at what’s happening out of town is that New York hardly has a monopoly on good multiple-band bills. For example, back on the 17th, intense Philadelphia psychedelic metal band Ruby the Hatchet played on a hometown quadruplebill with a couple of the bands – Slow Season and Mondo Drag – who SLAYED at St. Vitus this past Saturday. More about that inspiring night here momentarily. In the meantime, Ruby the Hatchet have moved on to a kick-ass triplebill, headlining at around 10 at the Acheron on July 24. ...

State-of-the-Art Heavy Psychedelic Band Mondo Drag Bring Their Stoner Stomp to St. Vitus

Source: New York Music Daily

Oakland psychedelic band Mondo Drag’s second album – streaming at Bandcamp – is amazingly retro, yet completely in the here and now. As far as stoner art-rock goes, this stuff is state-of-the-art. It opens with a song titled Zephyr, which fades up with a galloping pulse, vocals back in the mix, John Gamino’s smoky Hammond organ front and center over the careening rhythm section of Zack Anderson’s trebly bass and drummer Cory Berry’s muted stampede. They wind it up with a guitar solo in tandem with the organ that wouldn’t be out of place on an classic Nektar album…or ...

Sounds Of Echo Fest 2013 #1: Electric Citizen

Source: Fuzzy Logic

As a lover of festivals who just so happens to be a lover of psych, it should come as absolutely no surprise in the slightest that the psychedelically-inclined Echo Fest is totally in my wheelhouse. Created and curated by Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor, the Echo Fest (now in year 4) showcases some of the mighty fine psych and experimental bands found out there in the Middle Western territories. Should you find yourself in the greater Detroit area on November 16th, there’s not a better event to attend.

Already on my radar thanks to a recommendation from the Ttotals ...
