Fever Dog
(Second Wind)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock, Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Radio Moscow, The Heads, Rush
Fever Dog, hailing from the drought stricken deserts of California have released an impressive album with 2014’s Second Wind. It is a melting pot of heavy psych blues, psychedelic jams and classic stoner rock grooves. It’s an album that will take you back to the early 70’s... Full Review and Video Clip
Dodson and Fogg
(After The Fall)
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic folk
Sounds Like: Beck, Wilco, Donovan
Having released 5 albums since 2012, you have to question the quality and depth in being perhaps too prolific. Dodson and Fogg hailing from England is named after a reckless law firm in the Charles Dickens novel 'The Pickwick Papers'. Mastermind Chris Wade who in-fact writes all the songs and plays ...

Young Creatures
(Fear All The Things)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Genre: Rock
Sounds Like: Incubus, Eyes on the Shore, The Killers
The debut full  length album from L.A. based Young Creatures features a blend of spacious rock, pop, with hints of psychedelia. Fear All The Things is riddled with dark undertones, intelligent lyrics and a very radio friendly pop vibe. What intrigues us most about the band is their abi... Full Review and Video Clip
Billy Tsounis
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.5 of 11
Genre: Progressive rock, Experimental
Sounds Like: Joe Satriani, Ozric Tentacles, Laundry
For those of you who like your progressive rock a bit out there and distinctive, take a gander at Southern California guitarist Billy Tsounis’s latest release Nefelibata. This album is a culmination of odd and unique song structures; it often borders Zappa-like offbeat rhythms, Ozric ... Full Review and Video Clip
Gunpowder Gray
Staff Rating: Turn this to 3 of 11
Genre: Cock rock
Sounds Like: Faster Pussycat, Tora Tora, Bang Tango
Caution: this album contains song titles with silly misspelled words such as "Cummin" and "Outta,"but wait that is not all. It also contains one of the biggest taboos in the land, not only the band name and a self-titled album but a self-titled song to boot. Yes, track 1 is "Gunpowder Gray" as well....

Velvet Cacoon
Staff Rating: Turn this to 1 of 11
Genre: Black Metal, Ambient
Sounds Like: Wolves in the Throne Room, Blut Aus Nord
Ambiance and black metal are two genres that somehow should be able to co-mingle with one another as they can be eerily similar at times, depending on the artist of course. Portland, Oregon’s  Velvet Cacoon has released an album that tries to do just this. The band consists of two musicia... Full Review and Video Clip
The Schomberg Fair
(I Wont Be Afraid)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Folk, Psychedelic rock, Gospel
Sounds Like: The Sadies, Larry and His Flask, 16 Horsepower
The Schomberg Fair fold four music genres into their very own peculiar style. Take two cups of gospel, throw in another two cups of grass roots folk, half a cup of blues, and powder off the top with a fair amount of psychedelia and there you have it. I Won't Be Afraid is the fourth release ... Full Review and Video Clip
(To The Estimated Size Of The Universe)

Genre: Atmospheric metal, Stoner rock

We are starting to find some terrific obscure music emerging from the Mediterranean these days, Tuber and One Leg Mary to name a couple. Now from Thessaloniki, Greece, we welcome newcomers CRAANG. Their debut, To the Estimated Size of the Universe is a psychedelic, heavy hitting bombshell o... Full Review and Video Clip

Looking for that new dungeon crawling, skull crushing heavy metal band that you can get excited about? Well, so are we. Possessed Steel is a brand new four-piece metal band from Toronto, Canada.

The Joy of Nature (TJON) is a psychedelic, ambient folk project by the multi-talented musician known as LC.
