Neo Psychedelic Scene

The past decade has seen the revival of psychedelic music scene. Two main representatives are King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard and Thee Oh Sees. These bands, and many other bands, fill arenas around the world. The new music has so little chord changes, that it might just be all one chord for an entire hour today. In today’s show, we explore some of the new music that comes from that scene, including the latest albums by Karkara from France, Ghost Funk Orchestra from New York, Dhidalah from Japan, Eerie Family from Texas, Helicon from London and Plastic Crimewave Syndicate from Chicago.

Ruby The Hatchet

Welcome to the first regular show in 2020. We’re loaded with the new stuff. We have the new single for Ruby The Hatchet. These hard rocking Philly folks released a cover of Uriah Heep and also visited Cleveland, so we have them in our Live in Cleveland segment. On the power pop side of things, we hear the new single from Mo Troper over in Portland and one of the relatively new tracks from his fellow Oregonian Stan McMahon. Covering my old haunts, we introduce Triggers and Slips from Salt Lake City and Bipolaroid from Louisiana. Although, the latter band will confuse you, they sound like they’re from UK circa ’67. We also have recent tunes from Impulsive Hearts over in Chicago and Madd (or are they The Viles now?!) from California. One of the bands that fell through the cracks last year, Coke Dares from Bloomington IN resurfaces today. We close the show with two tributes to the heroes that we lost in the battle of life. Dave Riley of Big Black and Roy Loney of Flamin’ Groovies.

Part three of our list of best albums in 2019! Today we review some albums which did not make it to our top 30, which may probably just be the lack of my own attention. But before that, I’ve noticed that a whole bunch of good albums were shorter than 30 minutes this year, which is an interesting phenomenon. Albums were too long when we switched formats from LP to CD, but with less than 30 minutes, they seem to be a little too short. Back in the day, those would be classified as Mini LPs. So, today we also check the list of best Mini Albums, all of which were pretty hot last year. At the top of that list is Gyasi.

Happy new year, everyone. Today we finish the list of best albums in 2019 (top 13). In my opinion, Danny and the Doorknobs return album Jukebox in the LA River stands out in it’s playful quality among the rest of this year’s production. The band also released another digital only album as Trotsky Icepick this year, making a double whammy for all those who were thirsty for their sound since the breakup in the 90s. Our hope is that the band will stay together for many more years to come. Tune in next week for our part 3 where we introduce many nice mini albums (shorter than 30 minutes) and a few other albums that didn’t make the list.
