HOLY

Here's some warm and gorgeous psychedelic pop from Sweden's HOLY.  "Heard Her" moves and swirls in all the right ways.  Listen below and get the upcoming "All These Worlds Are Yours" LP from PNKSLM in January.

Filthy Huns

It seems like it's been a while since i last hopped on the hype train for vast array of weirdo artists on Not Not Fun, and brother, that's just not right.  Anyway, December sees the release of the new cassette, "Forever Beast," from LA artist Filthy Huns.  Listen to "Magick Tea" below.  It sounds like wasted dub music mixed with pagan rituals all going on an acid trip together in the desert.  Then get it here.

His Electro Blue Voice

Man, i sure am glad i came across Maple Death Records earlier this year when they released a vinyl reissue of Cindy Lee's "Malenkost."  Ever since then, the label has kept me in a steady supply of excellent off-center music coming out of Italy, from cowpunk to loopy synths to post punk and noise.  It's been great.  And now, out in a few days is the latest from Italian band His Electro Blue Voice.  "Mental Hoop" is searing, blistering mix of hardcore punk, industrial, noise, and psychedelic post punk.  Listen to "Earthworm" below and get the record here.

HEALTH & NOLIFE

LA synth-noise-dance-rock band HEALTH have teamed with New York producer NOLIFE to craft the creeping and foreboding "Hard to Be a God."  It's pretty awesome, an oozing mix of icy club music and ominous noise.  Let's hope we get more from these guys soon.  Listen below.

Pinkshinyultrablast

Russian shoegaze band Pinkshinyultrablast go full on lush and gorgeous synth pop with their latest track "In the Hanging Gardens," and it works wonderfully.  An album is in the works, but you can listen to the song below now, and get it from Club AC30.


King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard - Polygondwanaland

Still attempting to release 5 albums before year's end, Aussie psych and garage troubadours King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard just unleashed their 4th effort of the year, "Polygondwanaland," and they've made it available for free download.  Hooray!  Stream the whole thing below, and go get it here from Flightless.  Also, the band has made the masters to the songs available for free as well...which means there may be all manner of bootlegged releases of the record on the horizon in the near future.  Be on the lookout i guess, and let's anxiously await album number 5.  I'm thinking something just in time for Christmas.

Tea Leigh and Luke Reed

A few years ago, lo-fi artist Luke Reed used to record lovely dreampop singles with like-minded artist Tea Leigh which were eventually lost to memory and probably the inner sanctums of Soundcloud and Youtube and such.  After parting ways, Leigh went on to become a tattoo artist in Brooklyn, and Reed continued to make music, releasing an album of lo-fi folk pop jams earlier this year.  But now the duo are back together for a new single, the gorgeous and sleepy bedroom pop jam "Underwater."  Listen below, and then get it here from The Native Sound.  While there, you may also want to grab "Singles," an EP of the duo's songs from 2012.  They're fantastic.  Let's hope we get some more.

Loma

The wonderful Dripping Springs, TX band Cross Record have teamed up with Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg for a new project called Loma.  The project looks to be full of haunting and devastating beauty.  The self-titled album is due in February from Sub Pop.  In the meanwhile, watch the video for "Black Willow" below.

Swiftumz

Here's an excellent mix of psych-tinged Americana and jangle pop, a lo-fi stoner nugget that would have been perfectly at home in the late 80's with the likes of Galaxie 500 and folks like that.  Swiftumz makes jangly bedroom pop for the masses.  Watch the trippy video for "Honey" below and get the "Game Six" 7" here from Fruits and Flowers.
