Pop Dr(((O)))nes: Episode 55

High Wolf's debut LP has finally arrived, after about a year of releasing cassettes either through his own label, Winged Sun, or on Not Not Fun. If you haven't caught the minor buzz on this French native yet, then now is no better time. Looped guitar lines intermingle with shamanic percussion and shimmering electronics, cascading in psychotropic(al) crescendos. Fans of Sun Araw take note. Absolute highest recommendation.

Been awhile since we've heard anything from the members of the cult psych legends Monoshock, but, kinda outta the blue, there is now a full length to be had done under the name of one of their songs, International Hello. Picking up where they left off, the newly christened band haven't lost any edge, in fact, the intensity level has been considerably amped up. 4 tracks of aggressive and live wire psych exploration that's bound to bring up comparisons of Comets On Fire. Do not sleep on this one...
