INFRARED by The Omecs


Some pretty damn good straightforward garage rock from The Omecs out of Grand Rapids, Michigan that will have you bouncing around and bobbing your head in joy until it falls right off.  This four-piece released their self-titled debut on cassette last month from Brooklyn based King Pizza Records and it's evident where they've picked up on sounds from bands like Thee Oh Sees and made it all their own.

[on repeat] AFRICA AVENUE by The Paperhead



The Paperhead have put together quite the exceptional set of psych/mod 60's tunes for their latest (and third) LP, Africa Avenue, which grows from the more youthful previous releases since the band formed in 2009 and parted ways from Nashville to go to college.  Africa Avenue sees the guys regrouping to expand the band's palette introducing touches of avant, kraut, and spacey folk elements to their already fully solid retro sound. Africa Avenue was released November 11 from Trouble In Mind. They just wrapped a midwest/northeast tour  (including CMJ) and are heading to Europe in February.  Let's hope they can make it out west soon.

CIGARETTE MACHINE by Ex-Cult


Memphis-based bruisers Ex-Cult have a new set of tunes laid out to terrorize your brain in the form of Midnight Passengers EP. The title track has been released as a preview and there's reason to be excited in their continued barrage of re-shaping the genre. There's also reason to be sad since this EP isn't slated to be released until February 9th on Castle Face (vinyl) and Lolipop (cassette).

[on repeat] MY DRUNKEN HAZE by My Drunken Haze



Sun-drenched psychedelia fills the self-titled debut LP from My Drunken Haze out of Athens, Greece. This five piece borrows plenty of 60's tinged melodies that are likely to brighten even the gloomiest of days. The LP was released 11/3 from Inner Ear Records.

DECADENCE by Nots


Nots features Natalie Hoffman, former bassist of Ex-Cult, Charlotte Watson of Manatees, and Laurel Ferdon from Moving Finger.  The band has released a couple of 7"s including the track 'Fix' above, and since then have introduced Alexandra Eastburn on synthesizer to help fill out the sound because everyone knows punk sounds better with synth (just see Ausmuteants).  The new four-piece are gearing up for the release of a debut LP of synth-laden, raw, snotty punk titled We Are Nots, which comes out Nov. 11th from Goner Records.  'Decadence' is the lead track previewed to the public prior to the LPs release.

[on repeat] I'M IN YOUR MIND FUZZ by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard



King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are a 7-piece out Australia that are always trying to entice every one of your senses with their experimental music and loads of instrumentation.  Their new LP, In My Mind Fuzz, is their 2nd LP of the year and it's a monstrosity that doesn't let up.  I posted this track earlier when it was released to the web a couple months ago, but the release of the album on 10/31 (fitting) just demands notice.  It's like one wigged-out, psychedelic, krautrock jam that won't let you stop moving. Pre-orders are up and supposedly each version of the first pressing is limited and completely different.  Enjoy the 3D video for 'Cellophane.'

Legalize Everything is the latest (and third) slacker full-length from Australia's The Frowning Clouds. This little gem of retro-psychedelia and sunshine came out Sep. 12 from Rice is Nice Records.  I don't see an U.S. distro for vinyl purchases so, in the meantime, stream the digital or pay the crazy international shipping costs.

[on repeat] WE'RE CHANGING by Corners



L.A. stalwarts, Corners, just released their new LP Maxed Out On Distractions and hopefully you were lucky enough to catch the record release show last week with the great (and also L.A. residents) Mr. Elevator & The Brain Hotel, Froth, and Wyatt Blair.  This LP branches out quite a bit from their earlier garage sounding releases in exchange for some fantastic 80's sounding post-punk and new wave.
