The illustrious psychedelic rock group FINALLY show signs of life with their new synth heavy single “Let It Happen.” A few months ago Kevin Parker said that they would be leaning more on the electronic/synthy side with upcoming releases. I’m sure some people will find a reason to be upset about that, but I was seeing them moving toward a more Jagwar Ma sound while still staying true to their style.

 

This extended track starts off smooth as butter; everything we love about the group. Around 5:30 they make use of the vocoder and it’s somewhat reminiscent of Midnight Juggernauts. I included a Midnight Juggies song below, because if you’re not familiar, you should be! Enjoy.

The Ghost of a Sabertooth Tiger, or The GOASTT, is a psych-rock project formed by Sean Ono Lennon (yes, that is exactly what you think it means) and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. While our elders had The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, we have The GOASTT. A quintet on stage, they create a musical landscape that brings to mind the legends of old. Ripping guitar solos, intellectual lyricism, and mesmerizing psychedelic melodies are their mode of play.

 

Sean and Charlotte met upon the fields of Coachella in 2004, so expect this set to be special for all involved. Catch the magic with us Friday.

It’s a wonder to us how long it took for Germany’s Milky Chance to get picked up by US radio. Honestly though, we’re just glad they are finally getting the recognition. With a 2013 debut that hinted at a blend between The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, and The Shins, this duo has been repping all the things we love about indie-rock in stride. Their single ‘Stolen Dance’ was and continues to be remixed by pretty much every producer going the ‘chill’ route. We can’t argue with that since the original was a summer hit in its own right.

 

We’re thinking a Saturday Sunset Session at Outdoor Stage is definite. House right, look for the frisbee.

London’s Ed Cares, better known as ‘CHILDCARE’, has a Free EP out. It is 4 tracks of high-energy pop-punk that’s got us remembering why we love live instruments and rock so much. We need to see a live show (for some bruises).

SPOON

After SPOON went to their Facebook to post a cover photo with the words ‘R.I.P.’, I wasn’t sure how to interpret it. I refused to believe that they were breaking up. One of Americas finest rock bands calling it quits? No way. After impatiently waiting, we were pleased to find out their upcoming album They Want My Soul would see its release date on August 5th. And the single will be aptly named Rent I Pay…alright. Thanks Yoda. I mean, I’ll take it. The song has just the raw and grit they’ve always been keen to deliver. Simple. Effective. Spoon. Listen below.

Antimatter People

Kitsune is a trusted name in the realm of music and fashion. As it is in our case, their New Faces compilation features some, well, new faces in the sound game. Antimatter People is one of those ensembles that deserves a special heads-up. We’ve well learned you can never have enough psychedelic rock jams reminiscent of Pink Floyd circulating your ears; even more so when the production is as pristine as it is. This group adds a special flair that we’ve yet lately heard anywhere else (catch that Schubert coverage in “Only Ark”).

Being compared to The Beatles is no easy feat. The boys of Temples have, however, absolutely earned the distinction. As soon as ‘Shelter Song’ made its way to the airwaves, the music world knew an iconic Psychedelic-Pop band of our age was born. Since then, every release they’ve put out has received coverage from nearly every taste maker in the game. Their album Sun Structures is definitely among our favourite trips of the year thus far. We’ll be looking forward to the tapestry of colour across the heavens in whats looking to be the perfect Saturday sunset set.
