Me And My Kites – Is It Real Or Is It Made? - CD

€11.99

Swedish psychedelic collective Me & My Kites have evolved considerably since the 2012 recording of their excellent debut album "Like a Dream Back Then".
Their latest "Is It Real or is it Made" strips back the psychedelia of that debut in favor of a more progressive, indefinable sound, with a distinctive Canterbury flavor.
Vocalist Lisa Isaksson seems to be a more dominant voice on this release, and her pure, folk-inflected vocals, combined with Karin Engqvist's lyrical piano work, often reminds this listener of a more progressive minded version of the sort of things that the Unthanks have been unleashing over the last few years.

Limited edition custom made 3-panel, 4-color discfolio.

Subrosa – For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages - CD-Digi

With their anticipated new album “For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages”, Salt Lake City doom-chamber metal band SUBROSA have created their most triumphant and most enveloping album to date. “For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages” sees SUBROSA expanding their sound to a new plateau with their heaviest, darkest, and most dynamic-sounding album to date through bigger-sounding production value (the new album was fully engineered and mixed by drummer Andy Patterson). With the awareness brought onto the band with the new album’s predecessor, which also saw SUBROSA on their most active touring schedule yet, “For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages” will bring more demand and awareness to the band as they prepare to unveil their most important and crucial album in their repertoire.

Integrity ‎– Howling, For The Nightmare Shall Consume - 2LP

Known for being one of the most incendiary and influential bands in hardcore and modern metal history, apocalyptic heavy music icons INTEGRITY return with their highly anticipated, 12th studio album entitled Howling, For The Nightmare Shall Consume.
A conceptual foretelling of the final days of Armageddon, Howling... is a manifestation of pentecostal nightmares and religious depravities, wrought with fire and brimstone sermons and occult prophecies bathed in waves of destruction.

Omnia Opera ‎– Nothing Is Ordinary - 3LP Splatter

There surely aren’t many bands that can lay claim to being the primary exponents of an entire genre – but psychedelic legends Omnia Opera can, because, well, they invented it.
Incorporating searing punk-edged acid rock with cutting-edge interstellar synthesis & sampling, with well-observed politically-edged, socially-conscious and cosmically-inclined lyrics alongside powerful arrangements.
Fast-forward to 2006, and the band spent the next four years writing and recording what was to become their magnum opus, the album ‘Nothing is Ordinary’.
Meticulously remastered for vinyl and with packaging to match the original CD release (a stunning triple-gatefold sleeve, with printed inserts to house the vinyl).
An absolute essential for any lover of psychedelic music or acid rock.

The Imajinary Friends – The Imajinary Friends - CD-Digi

After over a 15 year hiatus, the Imajinary Friends are back with a new collection of sizzling electric dreams from space that pulsate with a strange, sexy, far out groove (i.e. L’Outsider, with guest vocals and lyrics by Deborrah Morgan aka Moogy.) On their eponymously self-titled 3rd LP, the Imajinary Friends tweak the frequencies and really fry all the instrumentation that is both dizzying and danceable (i.e. The Dark Sparkle or Space Trash.) The Imajinary Friends continue to experiment with sounds and rhythm on tracks like 101 Kazoos and Frangipani. This record brings the rhythms of the 70’s Krautrock scene with the dark guitars of UK Post-Punk paired with buried vocals and slurred sounds of the 90’s shoegaze movement.

Brant Bjork ‎– Jalamanta - 2LP

"Jalamanta was a life changing record for me. Its the record that launched my journey as Brant Bjork. Listening to the tapes 20 years later was amazing. Tony Mason and myself were transported back to that moment in time. Jalamanta was a first for both Tony and myself. My first record as a solo artist and his first record as an engineer. We didnt think twice about re-mixing it. With our combined experience over the years, we knew we could take Jalamanta to the place we always wanted it to go..and we did. Dig it."
