King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard veer into metal with their thundering, surreal new song “Planet B.” “Open your eyes and shoot the dingo/All this shit goes out the window,” the Australian psych-rockers bellow over fuzz-bass and harmonized hammer-on guitar leads. “Multi-flashing, rusting tractors/Dying heroes … There is no Planet B/Open your eyes and see.” The band paired the single with a jarringly violent video. At various points in the clip, the seven members — all decked out in matching orange attire — bark like dogs, smile demonically and run around an empty highway before a disturbing finale in which a stranger shoots them all and lights their bodies on fire.

Fumaça Preta - Piña Colada

The riotous party music played by international ensemble Fumaça Preta (pronounced "Foomassa Pretta" and meaning "Black Smoke") combines deep, fuzzy psychedelic funk inspired by everything from Brazilian macumba, batacuda, and latter-day tropicalia to James Brown, analog electronica, Turkish psychedelia, garage rock, and post-punk. Through his many travels, Portuguese-Venezuelan producer and drummer Alex Figueira -- founder of Amsterdam's Music with Soul Records -- made the acquaintance of Stuart Carter (guitars, Moog, organ) and bassist James Porch, both of the U.K. garage funk unit the Grits, after catching a gig, and later, met São Paulo native-cum-American citizen Joel Stones (owner of the iconic Tropicalia in Furs record store and barter shop), who became lead vocalist.

The Blondi's Salvation - Show Me The Way

After several years of work, Blondi’s Salvation have found their goal: to cross the boarders of the old, dying rock and make their music reach a new level. By mixing different cultures, sounds and instruments, they have created a new kind of sound, rich and complex, and have tried to reflect the new globalized world in which we live. Between violence, sweetness, madness, control, rebellion and respect of the past, they will show you the new version of rock they imagined, as wise and open as possible. Their new album ‘Wisdom Whisper ‘, coming out at the end of September, is a mix of many different influences. If you listen carefully, you can find music from the middle ages, African rhythms and south Asian music, all mixed with a 60’s psychedelic sound as the basis of influence for the band.

Fumaça Preta - La Trampa

The primal sounds on Fumaça Preta are gritty, freaky, steamy, and a hell of a lot of fun... fueled by acid-drenched effects, with Caribbean and Brazilian rhythms sifted through a cheesecloth of loopy Bahian grooves and Zappa-esque chamber music... The tunes on this record demand participation: if you can't dance to it, you're already dead.

Träd, Gräs och Stenar - Last Time

Träd, Gräs & Stenar ("Trees, Grass and Stones") is a Swedish rock band formed in 1969, from previous incarnations Pärson Sound, International Harvester and Harvester. The group was one of the front acts of the Swedish progg scene, although noticeably less political than their contemporary counterparts. Their sound has been described as raw, psych rock jam, by the writer David Pescovitz, who also notes the band would invite their audiences to improvise and collaborate.

Chocolat - Ah Ouin

Rencontrer Looloo, Chocolat’s second album after an extended hiatus, finds the band swimming through modal waters, somewhere at the confluence of hard jazz and surf metal, blended with a songwriting tradition that the media, for lack of a better term, often define as folk. A far stretch from the psychedelic kraut explorations of Tss Tss, the new opus is a sort of initiatory account of the band’s journey into orbit. Here Chocolat’s kaleidoscopic visions of space have been replaced by manifestations of stark, shiny white boulders, with edges sharper than a wild jackal’s fangs.

Dommengang - Her Blues

The heavy-rock trio Dommengang hail from a little bit of everywhere. Guitarist Dan “Sig” Wilson has been gigging around the Pacific Northwest psych scene for years now, occasionally sitting in with Castanets and Scout Niblett, among others. With roots in Oregon and Alaska, drummer Adam Bulgasem and bassist Brian Markham settled over in Brooklyn, roughly 3000 miles away from their bandmate.

Las Grecas - Bella Kali

this is one of the most disruptive and innovative discs of Spanish music. This "Gipsy Rock" (CBS, 1974) was the first winning bet to unite flamenco with rock. Two styles that had previously been found before - we can look at some themes of groups from the 60s or the last years of Smash - here they connect in a natural way and accessible to all audiences. The Muñoz sisters made a fusion when this word was almost never used, and what is bigger, without doing it deliberately because it was what they had absorbed since they were little and they came out spontaneously. So we can hear the agitated voices of Carmela and Tina surrounded by distortions, riffs full of fuzz, wah-wah sounds of Fender Rhodes, Hendrixian echoes , percussions and other elements that make this record a true sound jewel. To carry it out, the producer of this record, José Luis de Carlos, accompanied them with a first-rate cast in which the best of the scene was at that moment: people like the guitarist and arranger Johnny Galvao, who had been component of Los Buenos and the Portuguese group Os Duques, the keyboardists Luis Cobos and Eddy Guerin, who had previously worked with Jeanette , the sound engineer Juan Vinader, who had worked with Joan Manuel Serrator the arranger Pepe Nieto, whose work was known for his work with Vainica Doble .
