From The Vault: Little Feat - “Little Feat” (1970)

With Little Feat being the brainchild of Lowell George, who was politely dismissed from Frank Zappa’s band by Zappa suggesting that perhaps it was time for Lowell to form his own group. Nevertheless, once formed, Little Feat would eventually slide out of Lowell’s hands, taking on a sound quality that would again lead Mr. George to form his solo project during the Little Feat recording of Time Loves A Hero.

Disgusting Beauty - “All About” premiere

Disgusting Beauty are a Berlin based band with a line-up including musicians from Israel, France, Spain and Argentina which was originally founded in 2016. After the release of their first EP in 2018 through Blue Cat, the band started touring across Germany and France, already playing renowned venues such as Kantine am Berghain (Berlin), Molotow (Hamburg) and Supersonic (Paris).

“The Heavy Medicinal Grand Exposition” by Frozen Planet....1969

Frank Attard of Frozen Planet.... 1969 talks about the making of “The Heavy Medicinal Grand Exposition”. It’s a true heavy-psyched-out instrumental adventure.

Simulated Sun - “ZPE” premiere

Simulated Sun is the brainchild of Dave Farina, best known as the prominent science communicator behind the YouTube channel “Professor Dave Explains”. Though his professional life is dedicated to science, music has been his true passion from a young age. Beginning as a classical pianist, he switched to drums and ethnic percussion in college, going on to play drums for a variety of bands in the decade that followed, most notably the Indie-Americana outfit The Lonely Wild.

Mad Timothy - “A Very Snug Joiner” (2018) review

Mad Timothy - “A Very Snug Joiner” (LP on Out-Sider/Unknown Recording Date)

Completely unknown dumpster dive acetate rescued from a US thrift shop. Best guesses at the label suggest it may have been recorded in the late ‘60s/early ‘70s, but it could just as easily have been a bunch of teenagers goofing around in their basement last month who planted the sleeveless album in their local pawn shop. Attempts to contact members of the band have so far proven fruitless, but once news of the release spreads, the label hopes someone will step forth. In the meantime, what we have here is an apparent demo that never made it past the acetate stage. Having run through all the disclaimers, it’s not a bad little album, boasting decent, stoner-type vocals, lightning fast solos, and surprisingly strong production values (although, admittedly, the label gave it the once over twice to clean up the sludge and scuff marks!)

F/i & Vocokesh interview with Richard Franecki

F/i are from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and have been around since 1982. They released a huge amount of interesting material, ranging from noise to experimental space rock. Richard Franecki has also a few other projects, including Vocokesh.

A Quiet Evening with Anthony Evans of ‘black sand’, by Jenell Kesler

Floating in from New Zealand, ‘black sand’ deliver a hypnotic series of fuzzed out sustained neo-psychedelic songs that are heavily washed in reverb and effects to enrapture and waste away any evening.

Black Doldrums - “There Is No Eye” premiere

Recently announcing the signing of a record deal with Club AC30, effects-laden singer-guitarist Kevin Gibbard, anchored by the powerful precision of drummer Sophia Lacroix, will be releasing their 4 track EP later this year, co-produced by engineer James Aparicio whose credits include Spiritualized, Nick Cave and Depeche Mode.

The Black Sand

Endless Blue (2018)

The Black Sand passed so close to earth the other night, where like a vintage wayward satellite I could just about make out their reflection against the light of the moon as they floated overhead, jettisoning a lush intoxicatingly sonic message from the great beyond, a postcard of sorts from their hypnotic galactic travels. Standing there in the darkness I waved, knowing full well there was no way they’d see me down here on terra firma, yet I did. That silent wave was all I could muster as I stood there with my arms flung wide, as if to embrace the entire universe, and then, Black Sand signaled me with a blinking blue beacon, where in that moment I felt like crying as I fell under the weight of these warm delicious couch-bound tracks, simply whispering back into the vastness, “Shine On.”

Soggy interview

“It was total chaos and ferocious as if the four of us held an everlasting grudge on the whole world. It was a blend of metal and punk. That was the Soggy sound, a true garage sound!”

Formed in 1978, Soggy quickly developed a unique style of Stooges infused punk and hard rock. They released only one single back in 1982 - “Waiting For The War” / “47 Chromosomes”. Over the years their cult status has grown exponentially. Outer Battery Records reisued their material!
