Father Murphy interview


Father Murphy is the sound of the Catholic sense of Guilt. A downward spiral aiming at the bottom of the hollow, and then digging even deeper. Through the years the band became one of the most peculiar musical entities coming out of Italy. The duo, well known for their really intense live shows, something in between a ritual and an artistic performance, furiously performed all over Europe, and toured North America. Their latest album titled Rising. A Requiem for Father Murphy was announced as their final. It was released in April 2018 by Avant! Records and Ramp Local.

Frankie Teardrop Dead - “All You Need Is Love and F*cking Peace” (2018) review


Frankie Teardrop Dead - All You Need Is Love and Fucking Peace (Panther Records, 2018)

Another band in love will adopting rather silly puns for their name (cf., Dandy Warhols, Brian Jonestown Massacre, et. al.), these dreamgaze Londoners don’t actually sound like their avant garde minimalist synth forebears (for the uninitiated, they’re named after a Suicide song). They’re also more like a neighborhood collective than a band, as their ranks occasionally swell to as many as seven different members. This musical variety (congas, synth, banjo, several guitarists and a couple of percussives) helps develop their wall of shoegaze sound into an occasionally disorienting headswirling maelstrom of psychedelic sludge we love so well here at It’s Psychedelic Baby Towers!

Hasting’s Street Opera - “Summertime” premiere


Unknown until now US private pressing from 1969. Underground psychedelic electric jazzrock / improv sound with mellow folk-rock moves and homemade / basement atmosphere.

Go!Zilla interview


Modern Jungle’s Prisoners is the Go!Zilla comeback album, released two years after their last Sinking In Your Sea album. It’s the beginning of a new sound adventure for these five Italians.

M.A.D. - “Eight Of Coins” premiere


Mario Barrios grew up in a family with a long history in music, a third generation guitarist he was never far from it. His passion continued throughout his life leading him to play in the bands Gantez and Avid Dancer who just recently toured the states with the band BORNS. 

 

Darwin’s Finches - “Yaupon Tea” premiere


With a name making reference to obscure minutia of Charles Darwin’s research regarding the adaptive evolution of birds’ beaks, one might expect a certain esoteric character to a band. And Darwin’s Finches is certainly an anomaly of its own. But that doesn’t mean that they’re not a brilliantly catchy band. In fact, Good Morning Creatures II, the trio’s third album is a tart and twangy, hook-filled 10-song batch of great rock songs that sound as if they’d evolved completely out of contact with the rest of the rock world.



Soft Sports - “Gordon” premiere


Taking inspiration from artists such as George Harrison and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Soft Sports are the answer to your psychedelic-folk dreams. The newcomers use their Americana and soul infused rock to contort their influences into something subtly psychotropic and off-beat, reviving political-folk themes for the iPod generation.

King Buffalo - “Longing To Be The Mountain” (2018) review


King Buffalo - Longing To Be The Mountain (Stickman Records, 2018)

Rochester, NY is home to many fine bands, from many genres as well. However, none have captivated me like King Buffalo does. This bands members are able to weave lush soundscapes, soundscapes that will fill your ears with wonderment, and with tranquility.
