New Track: "Bad Feeling" - Fur Church

“Bad Feeling,” the debut single from Fur Church, sears itself into your brain. The relentless rhythm section barrels ahead, while the vocal intensity orchestrates a primal effect. That high-speed, runaway-train vibe hits another gear when halfway through, a fuse is lit, and white-hot guitar riffs ensue. However, the cavernous, backend tone once again assumes the reins as the song concludes.

New Track: "Troublemaker" (Chrissy Zebby Tembo Cover) - Ecstatic Vision

While creativity and originality are often linked, music can also branch out from past roots. Once we dig into a band, tracing the elements that formed the foundation of its sound, it can give us clues into the musical mystery. Ecstatic Vision pay homage to their psych-rock forefathers with a collection of covers, titled Under The Influence, which is set for release on May 5 via Heavy Psych Sounds. The first sampling, a spin of “Troublemaker” by Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Family, elevates the raw fury, so to speak, of the original, as the band provides its personal stamp.


New Family Volleyball Album Available for Streaming & Download

One hopes for winter to quickly evaporate into spring; however, this year - it stubbornly hangs on. Meanwhile, Juliana, the new album from the quintet of Family Volleyball, whimsically flourishes in the face of the freeze. The tranquil, jangly delicacy covers you in a snuggly soft blanket along the seashore. Drift into a daydream, and temporarily escape. (Drawing by Molly Dwyer)

New Fairy Godmother EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Alyssa Thomas, who records under the moniker Fairy Godmother, recently dropped a new EP, titled Attic Space. Released on cassette via UK imprint Fox Food Records, the album features contributions from (Sandy) Alex G members Alex Giannascoli and John Heywood on drums and bass respectively. One gravitates towards the enchanting, incisive melodies. Breathing in the fresh, open air of the space afforded and then utilizing that space too, as a barrier that holds one in close, what initially floats in the personally ethereal captures an unforeseen density, retracing one’s steps, while reaching out into the future.
