[Music] Subact – The Outside World

Dresden has a pretty great reputation producing rock bands, but Subact are something quite special.  Through some sort of alchemy, they have managed to blend old electronic music, modern dubstep, and have finished it off with a bit of a 70s German progressive rock vibe.  The band has been featured here before, and most certainly, […]

[Music] CULT CLASSIC: FUNKADELIC-MAGGOT BRAIN. — dereksmusicblog

Cult Classic: Funkadelic-Maggot Brain. Rumour has it, that when Funkadelic recorded their career defining album, Maggot Brain, they were on one long acid trip. Members of Funkadelic had dropped some Yellow Sunshine Acid before producer George Clinton pressed the record button and ironically, the result was their finest hour, Maggot Brain. Sadly, never again, would […]

[Music] Meadowsilver – The Coronation of the Herring Queen

From the ashes of The Hare And The Moon comes Meadowsilver, at least as how I understand it.  Grey Malkin continues to be one of the leaders of psychedelic neofolk, and will eventually take his place among acts like the Legendary Pink Dots, Comus and the like. This is way too small a taste of […]

[Music] Pete Kosanovich – Self​-​Titled Debut Album

It’s impressive when you are so good that Dave Davies of The Kinks gives you his stamp of approval.  Pete Kosanovich gets compared to the aforementioned Kinks, Bob Dylan and other luminaries frequently, and the comparison is apt.  He only lacks a good publicist who can spread the word of his talent, which would sound […]

[Music] Zeresh – Farewell

My goodness!  I knew my friends in the band Zeresh had a new album out, but I wasn’t expecting an epic!  Farewell does an amazing job of combining the good elements of the early Pink Floyd sound and melds it together with neofolk.  Tamar Singer’s vocals are otherworldly, quite rich and unique in this genre.  […]

[Music] THE STORY OF DAMON AND HIS PSYCHEDELIC CULT CLASSIC, SONG OF A GYPSY. — dereksmusicblog

The Story Of Damon and His Psychedelic Cult Classic, Song Of A Gypsy. For any collector of psychedelia whose fortunate enough to find a copy of Damon’s Song Of A Gypsy, it quickly becomes one of their most prized possessions. Sadly, finding an original copy of Song Of A Gypsy is another thing. It’s one […]

[Music] King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Fishing For Fishes

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are an incredibly prolific band.  Every now and then, they release a crap album like Infest The Rats’ Nest, which is bad metal as far as I’m concerned.  Some of their fans like that.  Fair enough.  This album, however, shows them peaking as a band who can mix prog, […]
