New song from 八十八ヶ所巡礼 (Hachi-jyu hachi kasyo junrei or 88 Pilgrimages - its apparently a famous set of pilgramages in Japan):

The song title seems to be a pun on an manga series.

Welp, I just listened to Butterfly 3000, guess I'll go buy it for real. I don't know if it's a good thing that because there's so many albums I can afford to be picky? I find I kinda prefer the closer to garage rock things from KG since there was a brief period of time when KG and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets sounded extremely similar with a big crashing wall of sound thing going on, and I don't feel the need to listen to or buy any KG from that time since I have the last two Crumpets albums. A weird and dumb justification but there it is.

Unfortunately there hasn't been much activity since they posted a new single last year so I hope they haven't crumbled apart in the meantime. And I'm still pretty sure I found out about this band from the forums, I don't think it was from a youtube rabbit hole...

I added all recent posts to the Spotify playlist.

Here's some random things I have found recently. I don't think I have posted these before but I have no idea.

Mind Dye - All we do is Fade. This appears to have just come out.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFhy1rbiPdk

Sunburned Hand of the Man - Pick a Day to Die
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kxsl5JFaW18

Bobby Lee - Looking for Pine and Obsidian. A very cool trippy western sounding song. If you like the Dead Man soundtrack by Neil Young you might like this album.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vHvB1f68Yo

ROY - Universal Truth
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ubpw36dx1k

And while this song isn't really psychedelic, I think it would be a lot of fun to listen to on acid or mushrooms:

Haruomi Hosono - Tokyo Rush - originally from 1978 I think.

I realised I must have listened to one of their Levitation sessions on YouTube. Its weird, but I like all the musical elements there (especially the bass player heading towards a dub / Al Cisneros thing) but not the actual songs.

I can't believe I never heard of Stonefield til this week. This is what happens when you stop listening to Triple J, I guess.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaJ167S5Yxk

Singing drummer - check
Organs - check
Slow stoner psyche - check
Band of 4 sisters makes it look like someone cloned themselves a band - check

Just wish the bass was more interesting, rather than just following the guitar though.

Triple J is terrible but if they're actually playing something even remotely close to stoner/psych that isnt one of their Darling Artists already then I'll allow it

I haven't listened to Triple J or video-taped Rage in years, so its tricky keeping up with Australia artists! Do the cool people still listen to 3RRR?

I get most of my music recommendations either in this thread, the stoner/doom thread, or my Spotify discover weekly/release radar. Spotify can be hit or miss but the the S/N ratio of the threads has been pretty great.

Have a look through the other Levitation Sessions on YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/c/levitationaustin

They have a bunch of bands coming from that psych kind of space.

I've found looking at the YouTube channel for a band's record label often gets me new stuff in a similar vein. Slift are with Stolen Body, I believe:

https://www.youtube.com/c/StolenBodyRecords/videos

There's a couple of interesting things in there.

Slift are pretty unique imho, because they combine a lot of different genres really well. You have stoner-ish fuzzy riffs, some punk influences, a lot of space rock, some jammy guitar stuff, a bit of krautrock. There are bands that are similar to aspects of their music, but I donít know if there are any that would sound similar overall. That said, here are some albums I think youíd enjoy if you like Slift.

Gondhawa - Käampâla (also from France, really diverse, genre bending stoner/psych, with some microtonal stuff thrown in, some kraut influences, and they sing in a moon language so you donít even have to worry about lyrics)

GLEN - PULL (instrumental stoner psych with longer songs, Iíd say more similar to Elder than Slift, but worth checking out if you like both)

Hollow Mirrors - II (this lacks the stoner influences until the last song, but otherwise itís spacey, sometimes punky, sometimes proggy krautrock - less intense than Slift, though)

Howling Giant - The Space Between Worlds and/or Alteration (Space Between etc. is their last proper album and has vocals, itís spacey prog/psych rock with some good crunchy riffs - it lacks Sliftís improvisational/jammy side, but Iíd place them in the same genre, roughly; Alteration is their latest release, an instrumental EP based on jams that they worked on during quarantine, it has some bangers)

They also have a split release with Sergeant Thunderhoof, a concept album based on the lore of Masamune and Muramasa. Itís really good if youíre into proggy stoner stuff. Iíd actually go as far as saying this is probably my favourite material from either band.

Karkara - Nowhere Land (another French band, Iíd actually say these guys are somewhat similar to Sliftís sound, but theyíre less stoner and more motorik rhythms and claustrophobic guitars; similarly noisy and weird, though - and they have a didgeridoo and they donít even overuse it)

Korto - s/t (another French band, this time more uhhÖ motorik rhythms and open country roads? Itís poppy sometimes, but it's really intricate and sometimes really hard hitting rock; stoner side is completely absent)

Pyramid - Mind Maze (really good instrumental kraut/stoner rock. Some really good riffs and song progressions. Probably one of my favourite albums in the style)

Iím sure there are others but I guess Iíll stop here. Iíve been on a hell of a psych rock discovery trip for the past two years, and Slift were one of the first bands to pave the way for me. Them and Entropia - Vacuum, I guess.

Anyway, let me know what you think if you ever get around to checking any of them out. edit: added Bandcamp links

edit 2: lol, Gondhawa and Karkara are on Stolen Body Records.

edit 3: to continue the Osees discussion from the stoner doom thread, imho their best album (that I've heard and gotten into, I should say) is Mutilator Defeated At Last. It's short and sweet (33 minutes), it has some really awesome guitar work from Dwyer, and he has some slightly demented, sing-songy vocals on this record that manage to work really well. I would actually add this album to my recommendation list above, as it has a spacey, driving, sometimes noisy garage rock feel that's somewhat similar to what Slift are peddling. Check out Web, Withered Hand (this even opens with a pretty Slift-sounding riff, despite coming out five years earlier), Sticky Hulks, Palace Doctor.

the new Spiritualized record is deffo the best thing he's done since LAGWAFIS

only 7 songs and 40 minutes so it feels short, but nonetheless, it's good to have a J Spaceman joint that only has one mediocre song on it again

New Loop album!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrViQDlYxdE

Its good, compared to the '80s/'90s stuff, dialled back on the reverb and feedback a bit, this is a lot tighter but still buzzsaw guitars, propulsive drumming and (thankfully) quality production unlike the early Loop stuff

Turn it up!

Worth buying IMO

I caught them at the Austin show on their short tour. Blistering and the new tracks were crazy good live. I agree with this statement.

Levitation has always had some FIRE lineups over the years, but having to spend a whole weekend in Austin to see bands is rough. At least you can buy tickets to the individual shows. GY!BE and LPD are playing here around that time so at least I can see some of that action in my own town.

GY!BE should be good, and the Dots are always fun although I feel like nothing will capture the magic of the first time I saw them when they had the Silverman with them. The shows I've seen since are just the three of them and it's pretty much weird psychedelic hobbit shuffling around stage with weird keyboard sounds.

Not to mention the fact that a chance of rain will cancel the whole thing. It happened a few years back when I went, right before it was supposed to start. They were afraid of flash floods but there wasnít a drop of rain.

Luckily we made a great last minute camping trip out of it but unless they moved it I wouldnít go again

GOOD NEWS! The last few Levitation's have been a musical festival that is spread across 4-5 venues in Austin! Why make the trip to one remote location to do your think in the woods and get face melted by walls of sound when you can make the trip to a busy city and see bands spread across different venues! Bands you want to see the same night, but different spots? Hopefully they're close.

Most of them are, but I think Hotel Vegas is a decent walk from Stubb's.

When no one was looking, Serval took forty Japari buns. She took 40 buns. That's as many as four tens. And that's terrible.

As most you probably know, Kikagaku Moyo have decided to call it a night after their recent album. Currently doing their last shows in the US if you want to see them.
If you haven't heard it yet then I recommend, it's a nice finisher.
