Condor Gruppe – Orbit Of The Sun & Moon (2018)

“Condor Gruppe is back with a new record, INTERPLANETARY TRAVELS. The title hinting at Sun Ra is no coincidence. Pushing their musical boundaries even further, Condor Gruppe recorded 8 new songs that give you the creepy feel of a horror soundtrack, the heroïsm of the best film scores and the hypnotising grooves of jungle tribes. Diverse, yet exciting and challenging enough to give you a mesmerizing trip through the band’s own dusty record shelves.

The Record will be released on March 16th at De Roma in Antwerp. More info here:

The KVB – On My Skin (2018)

“‘On My Skin’ is the most openly romantic track on our new album. It’s a song that deals with the glowing anticipation of new relationships and the uncertainty and optimism whilst falling in love.

It’s also one of the most melodic songs we’ve ever recorded and is both melancholic and euphoric. We consciously allowed the vocals to sit higher in the mix, and be less obscured with reverb than in the past and think this song perfectly captures the bittersweet nature of our album.” Source

Spiritualized – I’m Your Man (2018)

Spiritualized ‘And Nothing Hurt’ will be released on 7th September 2018 on Bella Union + Fat Possum Records. Pre-order here: smarturl.it/SPIRIT_ANH

“Lyrically, And Nothing Hurt touches on thoughts of passing time and acceptance of one’s age – never more beautifully than on Let’s Dance. “I didn’t want to be fighting against my age; it’s very much about acceptance. And not with any dissatisfaction either – I’m not raging against the inevitable. I spent a lot of time thinking about the way that the songs should hold together, trying to make the narratives make sense rather than just throwing together a couple of lines that rhymed” Source

RLYR – Actual Existence (2018)

“Chicago-based experimental rock trio RLYR (pronounced “Relayer”) are proud to present their sophomore album Actual Existence, a four song full-length that distills and expands on the explosive energy and anthemic catharses of the band’s 2016 debut Delayer. Comprising Steven Hess (Locrian, Cleared), Colin DeKuiper (Bloodiest, ex-Russian Circles), and Trevor Shelley de Brauw (Pelican, Chord), RLYR’s indelible earworm melodies belie the intricacy and labryinthian structures of their songs. Actual Existence represents a step forward in complexity for the instrumental band, while preserving the exhilarating climaxes and frenetic intensity that are hallmarks of their live performances.” Bandcamp

Suuns – Watch You, Watch Me (2018)


“Scorched techno-punk blurs to smiley-faced synth workout blurs to narcotic psych comedown. Nothing is what it seems, and no one musical element is in total command. Low-pitched synths flower and undulate and evaporate like storm clouds in spring. Drums rustle and tumble as single guitar notes drone in slinky repetition, smeared with cotton-light manipulation. Ben Shemie’s slack voice drifts beneath and above the fray, parched yet mellifluous. The effect works whether Suuns play slow or fast, as with shoegaze, and they are constantly searching for any place to inseam a groove.” Source
