The Stormalongs - Scherzophrenic

Remember The Stormalongs ?
I've talked about them before with the album They Call Me Destruction. Well here they are back again with another, still a bit short (and when it's good it's even shorter) but a well-crafted blend of crunchy garage-indie rock with a bluesy atmosphere that peeks out its head here and there.

Very good rock'n'roll release if you ask me. And free-priced above all. As I would advise with all the young bands that make free-priced releases, give a little something, even if it's not much, every little bit helps them making more music in the future and keeping it free of the fetters of big labels.

I'll leave you with them now, good listening.

Panda Dub - Psychotic Symphony

Look ! Listen ! This album from Panda Dub is all you ever wanted to end the day with a smile on your lips. In truth be told.

Intelligent rhythms (and they have feelings too), beautiful instrumentals resting on powerful basslines gently tearing the walls apart, a perfect blend of psy and dub, almost an epitome that you can show to your heathen friends asking "psidob ? wadesda psidob ?"

Let yourself go, forget drugs and alcohol. Bask in Panda Dub's enchanting music from beginning to end.

Cya, lol.

Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight - Going Home

All we like in stoner metal is contained in this full-length album, big fat saturated guitars, wall-shaking rhythms, voices from above and below, and a big dose of booze. Here's what to listen to today.

It's simply one of the best free metal albums I've ever listened to (yeah I know I say that each time, but it gets truer and truer). Let's only say that it will blow your mind, cut your firewood and possibly tear down the foundations of your house.

A nice album to illustrate this month of october, which I imagine is really heavy, and needs a couple bottles thrown in its face

Mishigami - Tape C

Tape C is the debut album by Mishigami, aka Miles Coleman, classically trained pianist playing with rhythm boxes and synthesizers to create dreamy and efficient combinations. Five little tracks, a bit too few some would say, but to me, already kind of a sonic jewel. Melodies that will take you up in the clouds, vibrating basslines, a series of masterpieces of enjoyable apparent simplicity.

Out at  Young Heavy Souls, a very young artist collective among which I can only entice you to search for more.

Good listening !

Kalya Scintilla - Beginnings

This album is a collection of tracks that Kalya Scintilla composed between 2007 and 2008. A fast-growing production that takes us into dark mysterious swamps where pelt-clad shamans join us with their strange musical instruments to visit our most ancient and future brain convolutions.

To describe Kalya Scintilla's style, you'd need whole new word, so I took the word "swamp" that (I guess) Basilisk from Ektoplazm coined. It describes a darker and more organic aspect of psychill, a word that perfectly describes the atmosphere you can feel throughout this album, with a bit of psystep here and there.

It never gets old, and probably never will.
