The Tailbreakers - s/t on Ongakubaka Records!

Next up on Ongakubaka Records is the debut release from The Tailbreakers! Still riding the sonic wave of the electric 60's, the 4-piece band formed in 2014 in Toronto, Canada, delivers its audience the pioneering sounds of underground dance-to rock and roll, garage-beat and psychedelia. The Tailbreakers' self-titled album recalls the vintage days of analog, live-off-the-floor recording techniques and reintroduces the listener to familiar tape hiss, slap-back echoes and reel to reel's warm, all-natural compression. Stream two of the tracks below and head over to bandcamp to pre-order a copy of the limited edition red tinted cassettes. Tapes will be shipping out 9/26!

The lead single, "Electric Monkey", is available as a free download via bandcamp. Hope you enjoy, and be sure to check out the hip to trip video below!

The Diamond Center - Crystals for the Brass Empire

The former Richmond, VA beloveds, now residing in Austin, TX, are back with a fresh full-length that is easily their best work to date, and it sounds as though their "southern gothic" take on the psych genre has reached full bloom. Sinister yet enticing. Dark yet burning beneath the hot desert sun. Can't recommend this one enough. The tri-label limited vinyl release is available to order through EggHunt Records/Funny/Not Funny Records/Steady Sounds.

Super Luxury - Ten Solid Years of Applause

Amazing fist-pumping riffage out of Leeds, and quite possibly some of the noisiest tunes you'll hear this year. Turn this one up at your next party to clear out the stiffs and find out who's truly worth your time. Can't recommend it enough. Stream it up. Buy it up. Fuck shit up.

Lasso - The Dig Lasso

A sudden but welcomed departure for Lasso. Now a one-man show residing in Tucson dropping killer beat tapes? I'm into it. Hoping it will be revealed that this is actually the OST of The Hateful Eight. Stream it below and name your price over at bandcamp.

The Soviet Space Programme - Space is Hell

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to be a Soviet astronaut and victim of a botched rocket launch that sends you spiraling into the never-ending abyss with no hope of survival? Yeah, me too. This is a nicely executed concept album, and easily one of the more intriguing noise tapes I've heard in a really long time. Winding layers of heavy feedback supported by NASA beeps and other space mission audio that creates the completely hopeless and isolating experience you've all been waiting for. The beautiful cassette, limited to 50, is still available through bandcamp.

Moon Destroyer - Pseudo Seance

Some nice and heavy droning psychedelic stoner jams out of Ottawa that I just stumbled upon while cruising bandcamp tags. 4-track digital EP is available over at their bandcamp.

Travelling Wave - T-Wave

Dark female-led psych/shoegaze out of Brazil that may cause crossed eyes and diminished motor control as the low hum backing many of these tracks gradually burrows into the cerebrum. It seems I won't be leaving this couch any time soon. Cassette is limited to only 25 copies through fellow blog/label Hologram Skies. Grab a copy over at their bandcamp asap.

Trementina - Almost Reach The Sun

Noisy female-led shoegaze out of Chile. Definite MBV and Swirlies vibes. Plan on giving this one plenty of spins. Available digitally through bandcamp.

Nuvem Leopardo - Revolver Mercurio

Gloomy psychedelia/tropicália out of Brazil that mixes 1960s lovin' with 1970s hard-rockin'. Certainly a band to keep your eyes and ears on. Only good things to come, I'm sure. Name-your-price over at their bandcamp page.
