Go For Retro is an exciting band with raw energy which builds and releases dynamically without losing tension between instruments. Vocals are dynamic, melodic and reverberating often building up until an aggressive energized shout. The music is rock all the way with psych effects like reverb, echo, tremolo and wha. The dual guitars take center stage with one laced in effects and the other spitting out rhythmic chords.
The Heaters dive into shoegaze rock with plenty of trendy synth. Suspended Youth fits the latest trends in the psych / contemporary shoegaze with spacious arrangements, rich guitar swells, ambient echoes, and steady rhythmic drum and bass cementing a danceable groove. The music swirls into the atmosphere making crystalline sonic clouds. It sounds like The Heaters have grown into a sound which is comfortable and creatively unique, they found their home base.
This album is filled with psyched out vintage tones and shoegaze ambience. The music echoes and reverberates spaciously, at times droning off into soundscapes. It spaces out as much as it rocks pushing the amps to break-up.
...With epic psychedelic performances the likes of which are not to be found anywhere on the planet or in history. Vibravoid are the masters of vintage themed psychedelia. They are so good at recreating the collective fantasy of what early psychedelic music was that Vibravoid themselves have become the official reference.
Black Satori plays a mix of garage rock, doom, surf and experimental psychedelic rock. The songs are great, vocals and guitars are enjoyable throughout. The overall direction of the band is a creative psychedelic brew that does not imitate defined musical genres or other bands; they have their own sound.
Kikagaku Moyo’s music glides through rich and varied vistas in a way no one else can replicate. They ride the waves of dynamic like a surfer feeling the push and pull of the tide until they can sail high and free skimming the liquid waves of nature. The feeling of spacious freedom prevails with a rich sub level of mysterious surrealism which bubbles up to the surface again and again.
Hallelujah Mystic Garden Part One is a great Acid Mothers Temple Album. For those who think Acid Mothers Temple is too crazy this album could prove otherwise. Kawabata is true to form with his unique and powerful guitar stylings.
