The Bats Pajamas - No Hello

Toronto's The Bats Pajamas are back with a new and incredibly scuzzy full-length record to soundtrack your next scat party. Chunky rhythms, casual vocals, and a level of distortion just short of Brainbombs. The album is available on tape through Fleeting Youth Records, and, as with all of their previous releases, is available as a free download via their bandcamp.

Duck Duck Grey Duck/Magic & Naked - Split 7''

Got a chance to give the newest release from our friends at Six Tonnes De Chair Records a spin. It's a split 7" featuring two excellent Swiss bands that couldn't have been better matched to share a release. Magic & Naked kick off the A-side with a wandering desert drifting tune featuring an Old West riff à la Spindrift. Duck Duck Grey Duck's B-side completes the journey by reaching just beyond the distant mirage with a hallucinatory reverb-soaked jam session to lose your mind to. Both tracks require an immediate second spin through, at the very least. Grab a copy of the 7", limited to 200 (100 green/100 blue), via the STDC bandcamp.

Dolphin Lovers - Dolphin Lovers EP

Hit the beach with this summertime garage/psych pop EP out of Hamburg, Germany. Their cooing backing vocals and surf-worthy rhythms will have you packing your cooler and looking for an excuse to get to the nearest body of water. Name your price over at the La Pochette Surprise Records bandcamp and stay tuned for the cassette release.

KUFUKI - Akusekijima

Synth-heavy experimental electronic folk/psych diversions out of Tokyo. If you dig OOIOO, this has your fried mind all over it. The closing track of this EP is one of the more soothing and meditative tracks I've heard in a long time. Tapes are available through Portugal's Tapes, She Said.
