Let's do this.

First thing I should mention is that Tier I tickets for Psycho Las Vegas are close to selling out. That will admit you to the pre-fest pool party on Aug 16, which includes Elder, Wolves in the Throne Room, Dengue Fever, Young and in the Way, Fireball Ministry and *Toke. I got mine, this will be my first time.

New releases so far:

Weedpecker - III: Polish stoner psych, they're become more progressive along the lines of labelmates Elder.

The Citradels - God Bless: 8th album from Melbourne psych pop band. They have evolved from fuzzy drones to more meticulously arranged pop. Their entire catalog is currently available for name yr price.

Mythic Sunship - Upheaval: Just 9 months after their last album, I can never have too much of these jammy Danish space rockers plus some free jazz.

Still processing:

Other stuff to look forward to:

Witchcryer – Cry Witch (Ripple) 19-Jan
Prana Crafter – Bodhi Cheetah's Choice (Beyond Beyond Beyond) 26-Jan
Ty Segall – Freedom's Goblin (Castle Face) 26-Jan
Hookworms – Microshift (Domino) 2-Feb
Sunwatchers – Sunwatchers II (Trouble In Mind) 2-Feb
Fu Manchu – Clone Of The Universe (At the Dojo) 9-Feb
Wedge – Killing Tongue (Heavy Psych) 9-Feb
The Cops – First Offense (Artificial Head) 16-Feb
Avon – Dave's Dungeon (Heavy Psych) 23-Feb
Droid – Terrestrial Mutations (Shadow Kingdom) 23-Feb
Mamuthones – Fear On The Corner (Rocket) 23-Feb
High Reeper – High Reeper (Heavy Psych) 16-Mar

from late last year, but i can't find any mention of it anywhere:

CROSSS are one of my favorite groups. canadian sludge psych and really swell people too. their tracks on this split (starting with "cold hands") rule.

don't know much about the other group except the main guy was in built to spill.

The very great Justin Wright, aka Expo '70, has suffered an accident that directly impacts his guitar playing ability. Please kick in via GoFundMe or via his Bandcamp -- and do check out his excellent work:

Great Minami Deutsch track. It seems like they've changed up their sound a bit.

Today is a special release day. We have the debut from doom rockers High Reeper​, who I first heard last fall and couldn't stop playing. Their long awaited official release is today. Earthless​' fourth album sees guitarist Isaiah Mitchell take on vocals like he does with his other great band, Golden Void. Swedish garage psych vets Jeremy Irons & the Ratgang Malibus shortened their name to JIRM on their fourth release. I pre-ordered the CD via Small Stone on Bandcamp cuz I knew it would be great.

Stuff I hadn't posted about yet:

Birth Of Joy - Hyper Focus: Dutch psych prog gets proggier partially in tribute to the band Focus perhaps?
Black Moth - Anatomical Venus: Third album from UK doom rockers, might be their best, need more time with it.
Elephant9 - Greatest Show On Earth: Norwegian prog/jazz fusion.
Dead Meadow - The Nothing They Need: Has some weak points, but looking forward to seeing them live again soon.
Oneida - Romance: Maybe the most experimental and diverse release of their deep catalog.
Ouzo Bazooka - Songs From 1001 Nights: Garage psych from Israel.
The Laissez Fairs - Empire Of Mars: Garage psych & power pop.

Solid meat 'n' potatoes stoner/doom. This is what the Doom Charts folks like most: My $5/mo Ripple subscription has been well worth it if you like this stuff:

Crypt Trip - Rootstock
Ozone Mama - Cosmos Calling
Blackwulf - Sinister Sides
The Watchers - Black Abyss
