[Music] Time Traveller – The Way Of The Iron Fist (Part 1)

It’s time to wrap up things for the end of the year, and the next couple of posts will help me close up shop for 2018.  I want to thank Alberto Matsumura for his friendship and for sending me a loud, electro, proggy, Neu!-ish killer of a space-rock/techno mish-mash EP to enjoy.

[Music] Expo ’70 – Awakening

There are so many good neo-krautrock and neo-psychedelic bands that it’s almost impossible to keep up with them. It seems a new one comes out every day, and the quality is consistently great.

[Music] Kikagaku Moyo – Forest of Lost Children (2018 Reissue Pre​-​Order)

Japanese band Kikagaku Moyo have become my favorite modern psych band.  Though this particular release came out in 2014, it has now been reissued on vinyl.  The band carry the tradition of bands like Ghost and and perhaps The Flower Travellin’ Band.
