Suuns took the song “Sunspot” from last year’s Images du Futur and turned it into a mini short-film featuring a dude washing the blood off his hands.

[LISTEN] THE SECRETARIES – THE WAY I FEEL

secretaries

A slow burn gem from Edmonton’s The Secretaries. It has the earmarks of some of Jefferson Airplane’s trippier trips, but this one keeps things on an even keel, and the brass instruments give it a distinctive touch. Dreamy female vocals, grinding fuzz guitar and a loose Haight Ashbury style bass-line are all cooked up with a contemporary indie outlook. A wonderful way to spend 6 minutes.

Rock progressif et psychedelique! Actually, this album by Montreal’s Babylones is not all progressive or psychedelic, but it’s all great power pop. Amusez-vous bien!

[Album Review] Elephant Stone- The Three Poisons

Rating:

Release Date: August 26th, 2014
Label: Hidden Pony Records

I approached this review with a certain amount of trepidation. I enjoy psychedelic pop rock as much as the next guy (probably more, in fact) and Elephant Stone’s first two outings were great examples of the genre. But that market is getting pretty saturated and interest is starting to wane. Without even looking to other countries such as the US, UK and Australia, there have already been numerous psych pop albums in Canada this year (including superlative efforts by Shimmering Stars and Monomyth), so what else needs to be said, or should I say played? As it turns out, I shouldn’t have worried – Elephant Stone kick their own game up a notch and in doing so they raise the ante on all the other psychedelic rockers out there. ‘The Three Poisons’ is a flat-out killer groove-fest.

Hey, it’s still Weird Tuesday here out west, so pipe down. Montreal’s Sunfields go all trippy and psychedelic with “Belly of the Sun”. Watch for a review of their latest album right here at RTT.

I almost let Weird Tuesday slip past me! Here’s one for you from Ottawa’s Organ Eyes. Not so much weird as charmingly unusual. You should check out the entire album ‘Visual Meetings’ — it’s a thing of beauty.

Today is Weird Tuesday, right? Well, never mind, I’ve just decided that it is. So here’s something weird — Small Teeth Tape by Small Teeth. From what I can gather this is alcoholic food service industry fuzz psychedelic garage noise pop. Yay, my favourite!

[LISTEN] THE EVERYWHERES – HABITUALISM (LP)

habitulaism

Halifax has quite the psychedelic dream pop thing going on. The Everywheres are another group of that ilk, but their sound is more of the lo fi garage rock variety. ‘Habitualism’ is eight tracks of reverb-heavy guitars and cooing choruses. It’s all a fun trippy ’60′s throwback so long as you don’t take it too seriously.

While many people participate in Throwback Thursdays on Instagram, I thought I’d do a little bit of that here. Back in 2007, the Woodhead Brothers and Maddy Wilde had a psychedelic band called Spiral Beach. When Doldrums opened for Owen Pallett back in May, they snuck in some Spiral Beach in their setlist. I hope they bring back some of the parties that this band use to be involved in.

[Watch] WISH- Retro Grade

No Comments 06 August 2014

WISH is a bunch of familiar faces in a fairly new psych-rock band. We have Breeze’s Kyle Connolly on vocals, Emily Frances from Milk Lines on bass, Beliefs’ Josh Korody providing you with his signature dreamy guitars and Decades’ Peter Gosling on drums. Check out their sort of lyric video for “Retro Grade” above.
