SEVEN LONG YEARS - Love Me Now And Hate Me Later

The amazing SEVEN LONG YEARS just released their long awaited new digital full length. 

The vintage sounds of SEVEN LONG YEARS combine amazing fuzz work, brilliant songwriting and harmonies with the atmosphere of west coast psychedelic bands.

"Can the Martians read our minds?" is a psychedelic garage gem reminiscent of the 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS while "Give her time" and "The Last of the Flower Children" are soon to be classic uptempo tracks. 

This time around you can even hear traces of some surf sounds on a creepy instrumental ("Operazione Vendetta") reminisced of the Ennio Morricone or the Ventures heydays.

A great production job, eerie vocal melodies, reverb drenched guitar solos and a combined mysterious obsession for everything that's evil and for Raquel Welch. 

Why this band hasn't been signed on SOUNDFLAT Records is totally beyond my understanding. The title track "Love Me Now And Hate Me Later" is already a favorite of mine and it should be yours too! 

Make yourself a favor: Go over to bandcamp and buy this splendid masterpiece of garage maelstrom.The bandcamp release contains the front and the back covers.

Imperial State Electric “All Through the Night” released on Psychout Records/Sound pollution

Merely one year after the previous record “Honk Machine” (that was as far as I'm concerned certainly the band's best stuff), The new Imperial State Electric, “All Through the Night”, has recently be released on Psychout Records/Sound pollution. The album was recorded in Nicke Andersson's very own studio The Honk Palace and was mixed by Frans Hagglund.

That Nicke Andersson is one of Sweden's most prolific and talented songwriters and musicians is not a secret but the man manages to still improve his songwriting with every new album and he delivers once more 10 new tracks filled to the rafters with infectious melodies, harmonies and hooks.

The record kicks off with the very Blue Oyster Cultish "Empire of Fire" and its heavy 70's guitars and pounding drums. And you immediately know that you're in for a treat. Other highlights of “All Through the Night” are the very fine title track, "Would you lie", the rocking “Get Off the Boo Hoo Train” and also the beautiful ending track of the record, penned by bassist Dolf de Borst “No Sleeping”, with its acoustic guitars and its Beatlesque overtones. 

Imperial State Electric has always tried to expand its musical boundaries and this time the band came up with the country tinged duet with Linn Segolson, "Break it down". 

The band (Nicke Andersson: lead vocals, guitars; Tobias Egge: Guitars, vocals:  Tomas Eriksson: drums, vocals and Dolf de Borst: bass, vocals) is tighter than ever and you can feel this band -one of the hardest working bands in the business as James Brown used to say- has been playing live relentlessly. This is an absolute must buy that won't disappoint any of the many Imperial State Electric fans all over the world and will even bring then some new ones!

Datura4 - Hairy Mountain, released on Alive-Naturalsound.

Last year,  Datura4, from Fremantle, Western Australia, brought together Dom Mariani (frontman of legendary Australian garage band The Stems and Power Pop favourites DM3) and Greg Hitchcock (You Am I, The Kryptonics, The Monarchs) along with Drummer Warren Hall (ex-Drones) and bassist Stu Loasby for a astonishing debut full length intitled “Demon Blues” that was released on Alive-Naturalsound.

Almost one year later and with another beautiful psychedelic cover art, done by Joshua Marc Levy/Asheville Art Family, Alive-Naturalsound is releasing "Hairy Mountain", the sophomore effort of the band. 

Their previous record, was great but this one is a real masterpiece. And this is no wonder since this band knows how to write brilliant and ultra catchy songs. You hear them once and they get stuck in your head for days. 

This record is filled with fat and 
heavy 70s guitars riffs, tremolo and wha-wha maestria, tight and groovy rhythm section and -most important- great songs with plenty of hooks and sing-a-long choruses. But it is not about revival or nostalgia of a past era. On the contrary, it is absolutely fresh and lively. It is a real heavy pop record in the truest and most honest sense of the word. A record you gotta LOVE. Favorite tracks "Mary Carroll Park", 
"Confide in me" and "Fools Gold Rush".

5.Peace 02:26
6.Freedom 03:07
7.Red The Signpost 02:57
8.Mantra 03:16
9.Termination 08:27

Baby Woodrose is an iconic band on the Danish psych scene who released its debut album "Blows Your Mind" back in 2001. Long before psychedelic music had a revival, frontman Lorenzo Woodrose and his band came up with their own mix of psych, garage and stoner rock which they have refined during the years.

Freedom is the 7th album by Baby Woodrose and is released more than four years after the previous album Third Eye Surgery came out in 2012.

All Baby Woodrose albums have a different vibe and this time there has been an analogue approach to recording the nine songs. The whole album is recorded and mixed on tape, giving it a very live-in-the-studio type of feeling. This means no cut and paste and a minimal amount of overdubs!

Special thanx to Imelis for provinding the psychedelic goods!

Bo Diddley - 1970 - The Black Gladiator

Bo Diddley - 1970 - The Black Gladiator
In Flac - Scans are included

A1 Elephant Man 4:28
A2 You, Bo Diddley 3:30
A3 Black Soul 2:47
A4 Power House 2:50

B2 Shut Up, Woman 3:40
B3 Hot Buttered Blues 3:44
B4 Funky Fly 2:55
B5 I Don't Like You 3:10

"Black Gladiator" is a great compilation of dynamic music from Bo's funky later work. The beats in several cuts, most notably "I Don't Like You", "The Funky Fly" and "I've Got a Feeling" are among the best he ever created. Bo's guitar playing on "I've Got a Feeling" is what Chuck Berry must have been talking about when he said that Johnny B. Goode could play a guitar "just like ringing a bell". Great album which anyone interested in rhythm and guitar should have.

Thanx to JPaul for providing the goodies.
