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.

Pale Divine – Pale Divine - CD

For nearly 25 years now, PALE DIVINE have been perfecting the proto-doom sound - rooted in the '70s, particularly Pentagram and Ozzy-era Black Sabbath but also Sir Lord Baltimore, Leafhound, and even very early Judas Priest - but predating so many cloying pretenders ever since. Not for them is this just another trendy bandwagon to jump on; PALE DIVINE truly LIVE this music.

The power-trio sound more energized than ever on Pale Divine. A veritable tour de force of everything that's been brewing in the band's cauldron lo these many years, Pale Divine explodes with thunder and swagger at every turn: from epic metal excursions to bluesy rockers, groove behemoths to graveyard laments, psychedelic swirl to straight-up crush, this album literally has it ALL!

Μινέρβα – Konserva - LP

Konserva is the debut album of the Athens-based garage/post-punk rockers Μινέρβα (Minerva).
After their first EP "Βέλβετ/Mama Shoe", Konserva comes in light to complete a journey that started years ago in the tropical city of Korinthos by 3 childhood friends.
Konserva (Κονσέρβα in greek, which means tin can) indicates the city of Athens, and everything that it is included in its daily basis, like depression, anger, dirt, psychedelia as well as happiness and the need to party and feel loved. All the above are expressed in this album through up tempo beats, punchy bass lines, extremely reverberated rhythm guitars and fuzzy riffs as well as distorted and echoed vocals.

If there are three words that can fully describe Μινέρβα, these are: Garage, Moustache & Desire.

Nibiru ‎– Panspermia - 2LP Colored

MARBLE RED 2LP!
NIBIRU’s sound is a mental, noisy and apocalyptic journey of visionary magic, elemental prophecies and esoteric superomism.
Tribal percussions, evocative mantras and hypnotic drones merge into a completely new interpretation of Black and Doom Metal, while psychedelic tapestries draw a fascinating and idiosyncratic art.

Darkthrone ‎– Hate Them - CD

‘Hate Them’ was Darkthrone’s tenth album and was originally released in 2003.
The album was a fine example of masterful primitive black metal riffing along with the integration of other 80’s punk and metal influences from the long-standing duo of Fenriz and Nocturno Culto, all executed in the unmistakable Darkthrone style. The album was recorded at Pan Lydstudio and engineered by Lars Klokkerhaug. The album intro and outro was created by Lrz from fellow Norwegian act Red Harvest.

’Hate Them’ is regarded among the best received albums the band released during their time with then-label, Moonfog Productions.

Sons Of Alpha Centauri ‎– Continuum - LP

Enjoy the epic introspective journey of abrasive and ambient progressive electronic alternative rock that is Continuum.

The new Giöbia album “Plasmatic Idol” is simply impressive: a collection of different sounds and atmospheres, brings the listener to another sidereal world full of dreams and mind travels.
You can clearly feel the influence of certain Pink Floyd in some passages but also pinches of Italian Progressive Rock, Horror Soundtrack from 70’s movies, garage 60’s influences, US West Coast Psychedelia, and late 60’s Space Rock a la Hawkwind.
The production is delicate and smooth, the album flows without interruptions and the music immerses your mind in a cosmic dimension.
The vintage organs and synthesizers are used in the best way possible, 8 tracks that capture your attention without distraction.
