Groovy Kaiju – Still Groovy (Pacific Plaza Records)
“After 4 years of thinking about this album and throwing ideas around in my head, and living a lot of life experiences, It’s finally here. Groovy Godzilla is now Groovy Kaiju, and I am groovier than ever! Even with the name change, I’m “Still Groovy”. This one is for all the cool cats who have been missin’ out on these sweet tunes blasting from the shores of Monster Island.” -Groovy Kaiju
Cut a Lonely Figure – Sugimoto Seascapes (Fractal Meat Cuts)
You may not know this about me, but I love drone and organ. So I highly recommend this @grahamdunning release.

Hollow Ship – Future Remains (PNKSLM)
I think this Hollow Ship record is neato.
Punk Slime Recordings are proud to present the debut album from Gothenburg quintet Hollow Ship, the follow-up to the acclaimed debut 7” We Were Kings from late 2019. Due on April 3, Future Remains is a massive introduction from the band, showcasing their unique take on psychedelic rock which sounds like nothing else around, expertly produced by Hollow Ship together with Mattias Glavå (Dungen etc) on the majority of the album and working with Daniel Johansson on opening track “Take Off”.
Rich Ruth – Where There’s Life – Part 3 (Self Released)
four sweet ambient tracks
Moor Jewelry – True Opera (Don Giovanni Records)
spontaneous punk blasts by Moor Mother & (Mental?) Jewelry

Nurse Predator – De Nive Sexangular (Self Released)
New Nurse Predator album! Some serious dub bass and industrial textures going on here.
“I have been led to the conclusion that the surface of the moon is not smooth ,even and perfectly spherical-but on the contrary to be uneven and rough and crowded with depressions and bulges” – Galileo.
Deuce Avenue – The Blasting Years (No Rent Records)
‘Los Angeles, the city of broken dreams. On ‘The Blasting Years’, Noah Anthony takes us on a defeated, late night drive through it’s endless highways. With minimal percussion and dread inducing synths, you feel the malaise churning within as the cocaine wares off and the self loathing doubles. Occasionally an echoing melody settles itself over the beat like an old memory appearing in the passenger seat. ‘The Blasting Years’ serves as an existential cruise through an alien landscape, where disappointments, dreams, and delusions merge across the windshield.’ -Carlos Gonzalez
Pastoral – S/T (Transylvanian Tapes)
Haunting Dark Ambient.
Recorded in isolation by Patrick Hills.
A soundtrack of tragically gorgeous doom and gloom.
Patrick is responsible for recording Chrch, Chrome Ghost, Exulansis, GraveCoven, Battle Hag, (Waning), Defecrator, Denunciation, King Woman, Vrtra and a whole lot more. Patrick also plays Drums in the Doom Metal band OCCLITH!

It’s a 3 track ambient EP feat. @ImpulseArray @Steve_Had_Music and me.

Here are two songs I’ve written for the 1971 film the Velvet Vampire, that I would have been performing live tonight at the @OlympiaFilmFest. Its being rescheduled for Autumn, which is frankly perfect. Spooky times.
