“Joel Gion sets controls for the heart of the sun for a desert-fried space rock adventure” – Clash Music
“Drenched in psychedelic powers that simmer to allow Joel’s voice to beautifully grace us… fuses The Brian Jonestown Massacre years into his own work” – Gigslutz
“When the melodies are this heavenly, just let yourself drift blissfully away with them” – The Skinny
“Firmly in the BJM’s psychedelic ’60s wheelhouse, but this is pretty together stuff and Gion has more up his sleeve than a tambourine” -BrooklynVegan
“A ride through in search of unknown pleasures while gleaning glimpses of future-past” – Santa Barbara Independent
Joel Gion is releasing his new single ‘Tomorrow‘ and it is the psych rock tune we all need to welcome 2017.  Perhaps best known for his long and strange career as the legendary ‘Tambourine Man’ with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, in recent years, this percussionist has also emerged as a singer-songwriter in his own right. He has released various singles, as well as the well-received full length album ‘Apple Bonkers‘.

Today, Peach Kelli Pop have shared “Halloween Mask” via The Fader, who said it’s “clever in its simplicity”  “Halloween Mask” is the first single and title track from the all-female LA punk band’s new 7″.  Band leader Allie Hanlon told The Fader the song is “about inner vs. outer beauty and the pressure I, and other women feel to be physically desirable. The pressure to achieve phantasmic, idealistic external beauty is unrelenting and irritating in my every day life. It is also about knowing that achieving these ideals guarantees no deeper levels of happiness, satisfaction or fulfillment.”

EP Review: Boy From the Crowd Channels Diamonds and Glass on Where the Bees Come to Die

boy-from-the-crowd-garage-punk-glam-blues
It’s hard to take something as raw as the blues and make it sparkle with unadulterated sheen but on Where the Bees Come to Die, Boy From the Crowd manages rather effortlessly over a mere handful of tracks. The sound never strays far from its initial source leaving the sting of the scraped soulful rock throbbing throughout the EP. Rather they find their corner in the garage, stomp it to their liking, then settle in for the long haul.

Album Review: Into the Shimmering Void with Broken Guru’s Bent Up Halo

05_Broken Guru_video_shot

Bent Up Halo, the debut album from New York’s Broken Guru, infuses ’60s garage pop and proto punk influences with raw modern energy and impact to create a swaying, gaunt phantom of pure onyx rock ‘n’ roll. Garage bands are often comprised of hep ghouls with one bony hand rifling through an enviable record collection and one foot in the grave that doesn’t want them and in this way Broken Guru don’t break tradition. They’re every bit the lithe revenants you’d expect, but between their sonic mastery and penchant for crafting catchy pop tunes, you’re still likely to succumb to the distinct shimmer in their psychedelic black hole.
