The California band returns with a fifth album also with a sound that navigates between the garage and the psychedelia, which will transport you to a B movie on a disc full of speed and distortion.

Frankie and the Witch Fingers’ latest LP, “ZAM”, bleeds beyond borders and boundaries. Its opening preternatural sounds bubble up out of the primordial soup, spilling into our world, invading the inner recesses of the listener’s mind. Like a two-headed snake wrapped around the skull, the album pendulates between winding instrumentals and dancey riffs that pop like supernovas out of the black void. Just when a song goes one way, it propels another through long stretches of a cosmic inferno.

Bringing glimmers of krautrock and funk, its eleven tracks unleash a versatile and tenacious weight, slithering between the sexy, the aggressive, the vivacious, and the disorienting—until the living invasion is felt—ZAM—a supernatural entity summoned by four madmen obsessed with tearing open a gateway to dark space. After being pulled apart atom-by-atom, the listener is reconfigured on the other side, born unto starry wasteland. Where head is separated from body. Where music is seen and apocalyptic soundscapes flow to revelation. A funhouse undercurrent pulses through the album’s epoch, reflecting a carnival mosaic shrewdly lulling and doggedly brutal. As one track bleeds into the next, that hour of running time becomes wormhole travel, until the listener returns earthbound, transmuted, craving more odyssey.

We discovered the Frankie and The Witch Fingers at the Psych Fest in 2018 and they blew our brains out. They recently toured and left a good feeling with the presentation of their latest album ” ZAM “, a one-hour cucumber that combines many influences ranging from King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard to Psychedelic Porn Crumpets , but with that Californian drop of a first-timer Ty Segall or the always effective Thee Oh Sees .

The quartet formed by Dylan Sizemore (voice and guitar), Shaughnessy Starr (drums), Josh Menashe (guitar) and Alex Bulli (bass) combine all this and more, wrapping your skull with songs that drag you to an ambiguous feeling of psychodelia and intergalactic dance in equal parts. Their band recently released their fifth album..

The main attraction of Frankie and the Witch Fingers is their explosive performance. With their rowdy and visceral approach to live shows, each member brings their own devilry to induce an experience of bacchanal proportions.

Using absurd lyrical imagery—soaked in hallucination, paranoia, and lust—the band’s M.O. strikes into dark yet playful territory. This sense of radical duality is astir at every turn, in every time signature change. Airy vocal harmonies over heavily serrated riffs. Low-key shamanic roots under vivid high-strangeness. Rambling stretches and punctuated licks. Cutting heads and kissing lips. All this revealing a stereophonic schizophrenia that has flowed throughout their body of work: an ebb & flow of flowery-poppy horror. The band’s latest incarnation is primed to break new sonic ground, edging into the funky and preternatural. Just when you think the trip couldn’t get any weirder, Frankie and the Witch Fingers cranks up the dial, shatters the mundane, and
summons new visions.

Band Members:
Dylan Sizemore – Vox/Guitar
Shaughnessy Starr – Drums
Josh Menashe – Guitar/FX

Los Angeles’s Frankie and The Witch Fingers latest double LP is out now!,
“…the band is melting down details from Krautrock, funk, soul, psych, and space then ladling them into the loving cup atop the alter of Hawkwind.” – Raven Sings The Blues,
ZAM is the kind of record that does not want its listeners to catch a breath, and perhaps the ever-expanding universe of indie-rock — indie-rock of the psychedelic persuasion, to be exact — needs more of this.” – Shindig
“The album leans on everything from krautrock, funk and psych to prog and garage rock, ensuring an adrenaline-pumping trip no matter what.” – Paste

“They’ve produced an album that is both an expansion and a refinement on what has come prior; broader in its scope, maturer in its delivery, and braver in its exploration. In a word: sha-fucking-ZAM!” – The Skinny
“On this sonic manifesto, Frankie and The Witch Fingers flirt with prog and experimental music, but use these concepts more for inspiration rather than strict instruction, resulting in high-energy headbangers with white-hot guitars and ferocious drums.” – LA Record

ZAM is the best rock n roll has to offer.” – ANON Magazine
“…it’s clear that the psych rock outfit have been knocking back the black milk.” – Popbollocks

Still high off the cosmic chemtrails from their instabuy 7″ Pleasure, psych garagemen Frankie and the Witch Fingers are teaming up again with NYC label Greenway Records for a brand spankin’ new full-length album titled ZAM, their fifth LP in their quickly expanding catalog.  The boys are venturing even further from the garage roots on this one, exploring everything from krautrock to funk, but still maintaining their exquisitely disorienting flavor of psychedelia.

ZAM is out March 1st on Greenway Records and the lead single just premiered “Realization” has “an unavoidable hypnotism in its funky guitar interludes, and after its rhythm-driven sonics and meddlesome lead vocals have left the station, there’s no chance of halting or derailing the psychedelic steam train.”

Don’t miss Sztuka Naiwna’s video for “Pleasure”  and catch the band on tour 

ZAM is available on red and black splatter vinyl colorway limited to a mere 200 copies

Acid Dad, a gang of Brooklyn rockers injecting a healthy dose of psychedelia into their livewire punk, dropped their self-titled debut LP back in March. Now, in advance of a sprawling fall tour of North America, the band has shared a brand new single, “Living With A Creature”.

Written and released with the dim, leaf-strewn milieu of Halloween in mind, the stormy, rollicking track conjures images of insomnia and claustrophobia. It all swirls around the song’s central monster, which lives “under my house,” “under my floors”, and, most tellingly, “up in my head.” The accompanying music video channels the song’s bleary melodies and vampiric vocals, with blurry horror clips conjuring the warped TV antennas of yore. To watch the video is to relive those bygone midnights in the TV’s glow, knowing that a little bit of static isn’t enough to keep the Wolfman, Dracula, or Frankenstein from clambering through that screen.

Since forming in 2016, Acid Dad has put out a handful of well-received singles and releases, toured the US and Europe, and shared stages with bands like Oh Sees, Diarrhea Planet, and Night Beats. They’re currently working on LP 2, Out October 26th via Greenway Records

Brooklyn psych punks Acid Dad are set to deliver their highly anticipated debut full-length this Friday, March 9th, via Greenway Records.

New York City’s Acid Dad have quickly established themselves as one of the tightest, tireless, and most energetic bands in the Brooklyn scene. The group “boasts an electric sound that welcomes psychedelia, garage rock, and post punk in constantly varying doses, and a rock ‘n’ roll attitude that screams NYC late ’60s (and at times Manchester late ’80s)” writes The Deli Magazine. Their eponymous debut LP was engineered, mixed and co-produced by Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, The Drums, The Men) and follows-up their well received 2016 EP Let’s Plan A Robbery.

The 11-tracks that finally made it onto the album Acid Dad are well worth the wait and effort. The band turns to influences as far ranging as Bob Dylan (“Die Hard”) and Archers of Loaf (“2Ci”) in surprising ways, creating songs that are as lyrically intriguing as they are musically enthralling. The band describe in one sentence the idea behind the song

http://

 

“Die Hard”: Don’t like New Years resolutions, backroom politics, or drunken orangutans.

http://

 

“2Ci”: Post 6AM rave on a accidental synthetic overdose.

“Mr. Major”: Inspired by our indecipherable Russian delay unit and propaganda.

“Child”: A companion piece to anyone having just moved into a metropolis prison.

“Come Outside”: Arguably the most dad rock by way of Nassau Coliseum song on the record.

“Marine”: A sharp stoned march to the emergency room.

“Mistress”: Below freezing lab rat in a constricting relationship with another frozen lab rat twice its age.

“Bada Bing”: Hard hat striking, bull riding, sweaty little peach fuzzing teenage anthem.

“Mow My Lawn”: Being forced to mow your lawn on a Sunday.

“No Answer”: Cops!

“Dissin’”: Is this alternative country? I think so.

Acid Dad will support their debut with a large spring tour, including newly announced European dates for May.

Whether they’re droning into the haze of “Mow My Lawn” or storming towards freedom on “Mistress”, Acid Dad balance dynamic melodies and unhinged punk with such precision that you’ll never find yourself bored.
