Two guys that sang most beautifully about demons, zombies, werewolves and voodoo were Roky Erickson and Dr. John. By a cruel game of coincidence we lost both of them in the past two weeks. While Roky arguably was always more on the other side of life than here, Dr. John’s playful usage of voodoo, zombies and werewolves was drenched in the superstitions of his native New Orleans and South Louisiana wetlands, rather than his belonging to the beyond. Who will now speak to demons for us?

Today we start off with a track from the latest King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard album. Then we hear a new single from Ruby Boots, who collaborated with Indianola. And we hear it in live and studio version. Margaret Dollrod is back with her new band Heartthrob Chassis. In Belgrade, we check out the new music from Šajzerbiterlemon. Also from Belgrade, we check out music from the surf trio cleverly named Threesome. Fever Feel from Canada have a new single (it’s a band that we just introduced recently. Over in Sweden, we check out The Janitors. It’s an older song, but it’s a good band that fell through the cracks for me. But the most exciting thing by far is the return album from one of my favorite 80s bands Danny And The Doorknobs. It’s a very surprising return to a band that existed shortly under that name, and is way better known as Trotsky Icepick. Their old album Poison Summer is one of the hidden 80s jewels and their new album might be even better than that. Definitely the most pleasant surprise this year and possibly the greatest return album since Mission of Burma’s ONoffON.
