Psicomagia - Psicomagia (2013)


"Landing in the era of 1968-1970 when Soft Machine, Magma, The Miles Davis Group, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Tony Williams Lifetime and many other were innovating the foundational basis to the 70′s rich fusion movements, Psicomagia bleeds with heart wrenching layers of amplified progressive psychedelia... Psicomagia in easily one of the best progressive rock albums to come out in years, if not decades and we are really astonished at how much better the album gets with every new listen. Progressive rock music has always remained vibrant in rock culture and Psicomagia has really taken the sub genre to new heights with their debut album..." - Sound Colour Vibration

Monomyth - Monomyth (2013)


"Do you like music that pulls you out of your arm chair and takes you on a ride across the desert or possibly even through space? Yes? Well I have some great news, here’s another album which is going to do just that. Monomyth are a five piece instrumental band from the Netherlands, a land that we all know has a certain herb in abundance which has no doubt helped these chaps create a splendid self-titled little record... If you are a fan of bands like Colour Haze, Monkey3 and latter day Ancestors then you are going to love this album..." - Echoes and Dust

Domadora - Tibetan Monk (2013)


"Formed about two years ago, DOMADORA is a burning Parisian trio into Psychedelic Heavy/Stoner Rock who (self) released "Tibetan Monk" a couple of months back. This debut album contains 7 songs including two of them who can be considered as intro and outro, considering their relative short length and different structures compared to an overall who's basically very much based on long jams and psyched-out stonerish vibes... DOMADORA is not the kind of band you're used to listen from the generally rigorous french scene, a band with an emphasis on jams and obviously a very LIVE approach, this is already a very distinctive caracter and if it's coupled with tightness and heaviness in fairly above the average measures, you're then right to think that DOMADORA is a wild and vaporous entity that deserves immediate attention...." - Temple of Perdition

Insider - Vibrations From the Tapes (2012)


"The album features five fully improvised instrumental songs, which have been recorded live with two microphones on analog tape deck in the band's rehearsel room. Hence it comes as no surprise that the song length varies mostly between 12 and almost 28 minutes. The tunes are dominated by extensive, excessive guitar jams, which will allow listeners to immerse themselves in psychedelic worlds. There is still the Hawkwind vibe, but INSIDER make also use of elements which we know from bands like Can or Guru Guru..." - Cosmic Lava

Fleetwood Mac - Jams (1968-1970)


Selection of jams by legendary British blues rock band Fleetwood Mac.

John McLaughlin - Devotion (1970)


"This recording date grew out of sessions Alan Douglas put together, featuring McLaughlin and Larry Young jamming with Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Miles (Billy Rich was the bass player). McLaughlin sounded timid next to Hendrix (none of the material with Hendrix has been officially released), but really comes to life on Devotion. This is arguably one of the finest acid rock albums of all time. McLaughlin is on fire, using fuzzboxes and phasers, over Larry Young's swirling Hammond B-3, with Billy Rich and Buddy Miles as the rock-solid rhythm section. If you think that McLaughlin's solo at the end of "Right Off" (from A Tribute to Jack Johnson) is one of the high points of his career, then this is the album for you...'' - AllMusic

Dennis - Hyperthalamus (1975)


"Carsten Bohn was a pilllar of the first wave of German Rock bands. He drummed for the 'City Preachers' (1969) , then for 'Frumpy' (1970-1972) before creating in 1973, the band 'Dennis', named after his son, with 'Frumpy' bandmate Thomas Kretschmer. The band's headquarters was an old village school outside of Hamburg, where the band lived and rehearsed with often-changing line-ups including Manfred Rürup ('Tommorrow's Gift') and Michael Kops on keyboards, Thomas Kretschmer (Ex-Frumpy) on guitar, Klaus Briest ('Xhol') and Hans Hartmann on bass, Willi Pape ('Thirsty Moon') on sax and flute, Olaf Cassalich ('Ougenweide') on percussion and Carsten Bohn on drums & percussion. The music itself was based on collective improvisation, with either a rockier edge or a jazzier feeling, depending on the musicians, recalling 'Thirsty Moon' or 'Tommorrow's Gift'... The record is highly recommended..." - Prog Archives
