PSYCH 9 - THE TRIP GOES ON (LP/TEEN SOUND)

Psych 9 hails from Rhode Island USA. The band rips through psychedelic, garage band, hardrock, progressive, jam band rock styles and much more. Their first album, 'The Trip Goes On', showcases the talents of multiple singers and songwriters, resulting in an eclectic mix that is never predictable or boring. The band is composed of Brian "BT" Thomas and John Devault on guitars and vocals, Frank Villani and Mike Meehan on drums and vocals, and Gary Klimala on bass. Psych 9 was the outgrowth of a project by the neo-psychedelic band Plan 9. Plan 9 was formed in 1979 by a beach community of musicians looking to create something different and not having a scene to do it in. Many albums and tours later Plan 9 was inducted into the RI Music Hall of Fame in 2017. After that honor a new album was planned, but band leader Eric Stumpo tragically passed away in 2019. The remaining members decided to continue the music and vibe as Psych 9 with the album 'The Trip Goes On'.

"That's right, we've reached a toker's dozen editions of brilliant long-lost, rare, and unreleased hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal tracks from the '60s-'70s.

KREWMEN - (BLACK) THE ADVENTURES OF THE KREWMEN (LP/RADIATION)

British rockabilly combo The Krewmen had several distinct phases during the 1980s; beginning in 1982 as a rockabilly trio, they moved in a blues direction for their first 45s and after temporarily disbanding, reformed as a psychobilly quartet for this sought-after debut LP. Songs like 'Night Of The Living Dead,' 'Wild Dogs Of Zorberon' and 'Hell Train' have a delicious B-movie aesthetic and 'Don't Give A Toss' and 'Guy Fawkes' are keen Brit takes on the form. A must-have for Cramps and Meteors fans, and all psychobilly devotees.

ICONS OF FILTH - (BLACK) NOT ON HER MAJESTY'S SERVICE (LP/RADIATION)

Legendary Welsh anarchist punk band Icons of Filth was formed in Cardiff at the end of the '70s, having been known as Mock Death and Atomic Filth in earlier line-ups. This blistering debut, culled from demos laid in September 1982, was a cassette-only release, the first issue on the Mortorhate label, run by fellow political punks, Conflict.

INDUSTRIAL/EXPERIMENTAL/NOISE/NEOFOLK/GOTHIC

AUTOPSIA - WELTUNTERGANG (LP/OTHER VOICES)

10th Anniversary re-release of the album originally released on Illuminating Technologies in 2011. Autopsia is a cult art project dealing with music and visual production. Its art practice began in London in the late 1970s and continued during the 1980s in the art centers of the former Yugoslavia. Since 1990, Autopsia has acted from Prague, Czech Republic. Above all Autopsia is not concerned with music. What is Autopsia? Art? Theory? Framing? Projection? Gaze? Autopsia is language is image is sound. Autopsia is a tombstone on the grave of time. Autopsia is archaeology. The discourse of the beginning and about the beginning. At the beginning is Death and the pity of Death. The music is in the pity. The music of Autopsia oscillates from romanticism to avantgarde, from industrial rhythms and dark ambient drones to relentless choral swells and academic minimalism. For fans of Laibach, Test Dept., SPK. Limited edition of 200 copies on black vinyl.

COLE, CRYS -& OREN AMBARCHI- - GALLIVANT (LP/BLACK DOT)

On Feb. 16, 2020 in Nanaimo BC, Oren and Crys sat at a pair of tables. Oren held a guitar and his table was covered with electronics. Crys held no instrument in her hands, but her table contained a mass of objects, some clearly electric in nature, others looking more like random bits found in a kitchen drawer. Working with these tools and microphones to amplify their voices and/or gestures, the pair created the two pieces here -- wonderfully flowing soundscapes from imaginary vistas of otherness.
