Exprimntlst Radio Episode 12

New episode of my podcast.

The Reptilian - Boys' Life

The Reptilian play a combination of Don Caballero style math/post-rock mixed with WU LYF-ish art punk. Really good stuff. Every song is just as good as the next. Great 4 songs.

The Nervous Ticks - Death To Videodrome (CS)

The Nervous Ticks are an absurdly good punkish garage band. Another great band from Richmond, Virginia. I might have to move there to go join in on this great scene. The Nervous Ticks, Gunboat, Tungs, Heavy Midgets, and many more all jamming out in the Virginian badlands.These guys have swagger coming out of their eyes. Buy this cassette before it's gone.

Piresian Beach - Alle Falle

I'm loving the resurgence of post-punk showing up all over lately. Piresian Beachis a solo project by a girl in Hungary named Zsofia. She does the vocals and plays all instruments with some looping thrown in. Combining post-punk and shoegaze with just a hint of 60s psychedelic inspiration, Piresian Beach have made an album that deserves an official release. Don't sleep on this.

Fuseism - demotape

Stumbled onto this album from a recommendation on Broken Cups bandcamp. First of all, this is so good for a demo. These guys are from Hungary and on this demo they mixed punk style and snotty garage rock riffs with just a little post-whatever indie band you listen to. The drums range from simple surf garage beats to fast paced d-beat, punk fills and clap track worthy disco beats in the last song, a ten minute epic that makes you eager to hear the next release.

Gunboat - Demo 2012

Gunboat come from Richmond, Virginia. It's a pretty unique blend of high speed post-punk, psych vocals and a shoegaze slant drifting around.

Ghost Bikini - Spooks (Video)

Donald Byrd

This album Black Byrd came out in 73 and it's this giant funky, psychedelic, jazzy pimp walk from beginning to end. Try to imagine Sly & the Family Stone sitting down with Parliament and krautrockers Can rewriting the soundtrack to Shaft as seen through the eyes of Miles Davis. 

Sunday, August 19, 2012

Slut River - Off White

Broken Cups - Slaves Of The Grave

Broken Cups play some great post punk noise rock industrial mayhem music. Fuck trying to label this album, go listen to it.

The Hiya Dunes - High Tide

Get it.

Radians - Iran 7"

Trashy pop hooks buried beneath reverb laden garage rock. 

Friday, August 17, 2012

Jungle Hop! - 13th Session

Jungle Hop! are another great French garage punk band. These guys play a mix of almost post-punk like gunk punk with a psychedelic lean. I'm realizing that French garage's must be much gloomier than American ones. In America we have happy poppy riffs dominating the scene with the occasional punker slipping in but France is pumping out these gritty garage rats that bring out a much darker side of garage rock. Bands like Catholic Spray, La Secte Du Futur, Regal, Le Pecheur, Dusty Mush, and now Jungle Hop! All I can say is more please. Everything free on their bandcamp.

The Ettes - Teeth 7"

Two tracks of catchy, attitude filled garage rock tunes. 7" out on Limited Fanfare Records

Thursday, August 9, 2012

N.213 - FXGGXTRY & Voxappella Series Vol. 1

This tape rules. Noisy no wave post punk goodness. Get the free download.

This one is more of an odd experimental vocal tape. Still cool stuff, though. Meditation music on the first track. The second is a super blown out noise track. Great contrast.

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Thee Holy Ghosts - S/T EP

Catchy 60s style garage rock with more of the original trashy garage rock sound than the Ty Segall/Oh Sees version of neo-garage. Buy this cassette for only $3.50 or download for free on their bandcamp. I got #37/50 so only 13 left.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

The Clap - 2012 Tour EP

New EP from The Clap. Hopefully one day these guys will get to put out a full official album.

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Episode 1 of Exprimntlst Radio!

Legs - Legs

Legs play post punk shoegaze, heavy on the punk side. The four songs you find here range from aggressive post punk heavies to ethereal shoegaze sagas. This band could do some cool things if they keep going.

Le Pécheur - Voodoo

Le pécheur - Holy mountain from Les images agricoles on Vimeo.

The Flower Drums - Suburban Wilderness

Five tracks of relaxed, floating in the cloud psych pop songs. Rain drips on has some major Phil Collins dripping off it's sleeves to start the album but the second song Outside the Province leads the way into a song that still holds onto some Phil Collins moments but more like if Phil had been part of Tame Impala and not Genesis. This song has a nice psychedelic break in it that lets you drift off before coming back to a 90s style chorus outro. Swimmers is next. This one is a sing along dream pop gem. Nice song for the summer if you can find some water and get out of the record breaking heat. Below the Forest Floor is next and it comes in with a more folk/psych rock approach. This one is a big change in mood from the previous songs, though, with a sadder sound for half the song before being transitioned by a reverb drenched building solo into a hopeful sounding end. Last is Howling Hollow, which sounds almost like a mix between Lasso and Devendra Banhart.

Heavy Midgets - Something Terrible EP

Heavy Midgets play a weird blend of garage rock, lo-fi, 90s alternative and punk attitude.

ahnnu - pro habitat

Highly experimental hip hop beats. J Dilla on lots of drugs.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Bloody Ripper

Two new tracks from the King Gizzard guys out of Australia. Bloody Ripper is a mix of psych rock, and 90s alternative with a hint of country twang buried beneath reverb for days. Sam Cherry's Last Shot is a slowed down song that sounds like a soundtrack to a psychedelic western stand off.

Monday, July 16, 2012

Le Pécheur - Space Crash !

Another digital album from Le Pécheur. This one sounds more mature than the other releases. More great brooding psych rock.

Friday, July 13, 2012

Heavy Ghost - Ten Thousand Years

Heavy Ghost is Caden Moore, who is also the guy behind LAKE R▲DIO, who has been featured on the blog before. Heavy Ghost is a different kind of weird electronic exploration than you find on LAKE R▲DIO releases. This one is like if My Bloody Valentine and Depeche Mode did some drugs in the attic with Billy Idol huddled in the corner bobbing his head. And by that I mean, highly recommended.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Abunai! - Universal Mind Decoder

Great space rock from 97. Available free on bandcamp. Imagine Spacemen 3, Acid Mothers Temple, Tame Impala. Similar to all of those bands but still uniquely having a sound all to themselves.

Swahili - S/T

Swahili are coming in strong on their self titled out on Translinguistic Other. Second record featured from the label, the first being Integratron by Midday Veil. First thing I have to say is Translinguistic Other has some of my favorite production. It's raw but clear and makes you wish you could be there for the live experience. That being said, it's what helps make the drone you find on Swahili so intense and relaxing at once. It starts off with Chapel, which starts slow and evolves steadily into a pulsing rhythmic force before tapering out and dying off. Next is Invocation. This song is evil. Whatever it is they're trying to invoke, let's hope they can tame it. It starts off with a buzzing, droney evil section that brings in a slowly played bongo and some tambourine to help the rhythm. Then comes the haunting distorted vocals and the chant builds into a seriously psychedelic droney tribal jam and ends with another evil sounding cymbal noise wall of sound. The third track, Soma, comes in like a cross between Pocahaunted, Sonic Youth and Naked On The Vague. Three bands that I love, which means I'm really starting to dig this album. Kidhr is next and it's a short noisy helper along your transcendental stage. This brings us to track number 5, Fall Out. This one is a big change from what you find on Soma. The psych out rock style you found there is replaced by a more desperate, apocalyptic sound. Distorted vocals, distorted symbols, and an overall feeling that something horrible might happen but if it does, Swahili are ready to play the soundtrack. Following that is Into One. It's a big change from everything else on the album and feels like a shift in mood halfway through the album. Not a bad change though, more like an eye of the storm kind of change. It almost sounds hopeful at times, even if that hope is distant and slightly troubled. The next song is Ascher J2000. The name sounds like a robot and so does the song. Well, more like the theme song of a robot and a pretty kickass one. It definitely sounds like the soundtrack to an early nintendo game but it works. Kirghiz is next and is a high pitched, meditative, headphone smack in the face. This is great headphone music here. This sounds a lot like what you hear from Emeralds. However, as soon as you find your center in Kirghiz, Agni comes in with a vengeance. Agni is a beast. Blown out drums mixed with an eerie tribal feel that is ready to wake you up and take you on a new ride. Surrender is next and is another short extremely trippy song that sounds like they want to make sure you're thoroughly disoriented. The final song is Contact. This one is a nice slow head nodding drone with distorted vocals at first but ends in a noisy synth ending in one last brooding psychedelic jam. All said and done,  Swahili has put together one great psychedelic album and hopefully this will only be the first Contact of many we get with Swahili. Soma, Fallout, and Into One for free download. Buy the album to get the rest. It's worth it.

Birdlips - Emanations / Powerlines

Birdlips is by far the best psych pop duo out there right now. Their albums just have everything going for them. Mixing a 60s psychedelic feel with an indie makeover and a nice mix of folk and New Weird America for extra taste, they create one great song after another. Thunderbolt being a standout track for me. Good lyrics, good quality, interesting and original songwriting and the vocal style is incredible on it's own. Name your price downloads at bandcamp. It's free but it's worth paying for.

LAKE R▲DIO - Dream House

Very experimental, shoegaze, lo-fi, hip hop beats. Awesome stuff. He needs to put this out on cassette.

Saturday, June 23, 2012

3 Leafs - En Super Forme

This makes the 3rd release from 3 Leafs this year. The first being the great Canal Smarts, then one long 45 minute epic called Spaa, and now En Super Forme. They play long droney space rock. Perfect soundtrack for the inner vacation you've been needing.

Les Hippies - Souci​/​Soleil Couchant 7"

Another nice psychedelic selection. This is sitar, guitar, and some funk beats playing 2 tracks of psychedelic madness. Main focus is on the sitar but the guitar is a nice psych style background with a mix of funk and tropicalia and the beats range from having a funk influence to a more ominous almost droney style on the second track.

Friday, June 22, 2012

Lil Daggers - King Corpse 7" + 2 new songs

This time we have some more recordings from Lil Daggers. I posted their full length (which is still available for free on their bandcamp) last year but never got around to posting the 7" until now. This is the 7" + 2 new songs from the band. The new songs are showing more of a 60s pop influence than before. Losing some of the dreary overtones we've gotten used to with the band and showing their ability to make some fun catchy songs as well as dark catchy ones.

Song of the Day! If You Want

Extremely catchy lo-fi, shit recording beach pop. Beach boys mixed with Eat Skull.

Sesame Street's Psychedelic Explorations

This is awesome. Sesame Street letting us know they too were on drugs. This is only 4 samples but there are more out there. Enjoy.

Friday, June 15, 2012

Les Rallizes Denudes - Enter the Mirror (1977)

This is some psychedelic noise that was waaaaaaaay ahead of it's time. Les Rallizes Denudes combines 60s pop/soul with some of the noisiest guitar you'll ever hear. Imagine Sonic Youth with some major edge and the soulful flavor of the 60s buried beneath a wall of sound.
Extremely underrated Japanese artist. Live recording from '77 with a random video added.

Lead Stones - Heaven b/w Bottle Goblins (2012)

Lead Stones are a band that seem like they're just outside the spotlight. Organ heavy, psychedelic garage rock. Great stuff.

A fantastic artist I stumbled across. Claire Duport. Check out and follow her at

Inflatable Mattress - Pumped Up/Blue Matress (2011)

Weird psychedelic off kilter hip hop. Perfect for when you're looking for a new weird cassette to throw in and drift off to.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

The Flower Drums - Outside The Province (2012)

A nice catchy single from the upcoming album by The Flower Drums. 60s pop meets 90s style alt rock with a cool dream pop break thrown in for good measure. Nice teaser for the album.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Crane Angels - Le Sylphide de Brighton (2011)

Crane Angels are another unique French band. However, this time, instead of the usual, surf punk we find a weird but very enjoyable pop record. This isn't regular pop, though, this is a much more intense animal. Imagine Beach Boys hanging out with Sonic Youth and listening to Queen records on repeat and you kind of have an idea what you find here. Get the vinyl over at Animal Factory Industries.

Ghost Bikini - Ghost Bikini EP (2012)

This is so good. One of my current favorites. Garage punk meets 70s country mixed with some Black Sabbath basslines. Short and sweet. Buy the 7" over at the Dead Beat Shop.

MMOSS - Spoiled Sun

A new track from MMOSS. This one seems heavily influenced by Pink Floyd and King Crimson style psychedelic rock. Amazing song.

Midday Veil Videos

Eternal Tapestry & Sun Araw

Ketamines - Spaced Out (2012)

Ketamines play a unique style of surf/garage music. It's catchy, it's weird and unusual, and there's loads of punk attitude. With a well produced lo-fi sound, they power through one great song after another on their first full length out on Southpaw records.

Midday Veil - Integratron (2012)

OK, so every once in a while you hear an album that leaves you wondering how you've been missing this. This is the case with the new album Integratron by Midday Veil. Now this album was sent to me by Emily who I believe is one of the amazing people you hear on this album as well as one of the founders of the label Translinguistic Other. We'll start with the title of the album, Integratron. The Integratron is a building located in California, invented by a man named George Van Tassel. As explained on their website, , "The Integratron is an acoustically perfect tabernacle and energy machine sited on a powerful geomagnetic vortex in the magical Mojave Desert." This statement is proven extremely well by Midday Veil on their album named after this experimental building. The sound you find on Integratron really is like nothing I've heard before. The sound is so deep and rich and the authentic reverb separates this sound from other building, droney psych bands, relying on their amps for acoustics. The three songs on here are similar but very diverse in their own ways. For me Rejuvenation was really the standout track, you have a menacing bass with some almost slowed funk drumming at the beginning, which eventually leads to some haunting vocals by Emily that weave in and out of a chaotic but blissful wall of sound and some strained, almost desperate sounding screeches from one of the guys. This mixed with the apocalyptic tribal warpspeed ending and you have one of the best psychedelic songs I've ever heard. Overall, Integratron is the psychedelic experience you didn't know you were missing. Go buy this tape now over at Also check out some of the great art Emily had to offer over at her website at

The Stuff (1985)

Great B-Horror movie. The Stuff is about just that. The Stuff that kills people. Watch it.

Cosmonauts - If You Wanna Die Then I Wanna Die (2012)

Psyched out garage rock. Heavy on the psych stuff. Album out on Burger Records.

Strange Hands - Dead Flowers (2012)

Strange Hands debut album out on Azbin Records. 60s keyboard style garage rock. Lots of energy and acid punk attitude.

La Secte Du Futur - S/T

Finally an actual album by these guys. Catholic Spray doing a more space pop fueled approach to their music.

Hellshovel - Hated By The Sun (2012)

In the midst of a relentless USA / European touring schedule (including copious performances with contemporaries / new label mates Acid baby Jesus) and the release of a small handful of 7” singles, the Slovenly posse is trying to wrap our brains around this warped debut LP / CD called “Hated By The Sun” by Canadian bumpkin punks HELLSHOVEL (aka Hell Shovel). Led by Demon’s Claws frontman Jeff Clarke, and featuring Dox Grillo sharing the strings / vox duties, with Bloodshot Bill (TANDOORI NIGHTS / DING DONGS / swarthy one man band LEGEND who makes an effortless transition on the drums from his [un]usual wild man rockabilly fare), “Hated By The Sun” is the sound of Johnny Cash drowning in a pool of cough syrup - a gooey reminder of the most irradiated moments of Demon’s Claws poisonous choo-choo train shamble. A swank, full color gatefold jacket houses the wax. CD comes in a most classy 6-panel Digipak.  --From Slovenly Bandcamp.

Fill Spectre Video

Fill Spectre - Scare Your Friends (2012)

Jay from Pow Wows solo project. Noise Pop, Garage Rock, Experimental, Lo-fi goodness.

Dusty Mush - Tom Pitt's Acid Trip (2012)

Dusty Mush is a band I've been following since they put their demos up on bandcamp. This is what I would consider their first actual release and it was definitely worth the wait. The 4 songs here are all amazing with the title track Tom Pitt's Acid Trip being a new favorite of mine. Catchy sing-a-long choruses and lots of garage psych fueled punk action. 15 tapes made but I think they're gone already.
