Our latest album on Lolipop/Burger—’Psychsploitation Today’—has had a great run, garnering a lot of attention & rad vibes. You may have heard that there were videos being made for all 10 album tracks…not only is that true, but we’ve also made a 35-minute movie featuring all of the tracks. Carve out some popcorn time for ‘Psychsploitation Today: The Video Album’

The Prefab Messiahs are back with a new installment of wiggy Garage-Pop-Psych scheming. Their fourth full-length release ‘Psychsploitation Today’ comes to you via Lolipop Records, with Burger Records .

These 10 self-produced songs represent a unique kaleidoscopic voyage through today’s cultural zeitgeist — taking on everything from 21st century media “Psychsploitation” to explosive ruminations about the “Last Day On Earth.” 

The Prefabs’ front Xerox Feinberg, a self-described “Lost Generation Wanna-be Spokesperson,” calls the album “a mental and sonic continuation of the things we were obsessed about from the beginning — mashing up the sounds and attitudes of ’60s garage-psychedelia with post-punk ’80s stuff and dragging all that into whatever ‘today’ is — while generally trying to poke people in the ribs and skewer some of the Big Shams behind all the Shiny Facades. We’re still trying to toss everything into the mix including the kitchen sink. We’re still bemused and shocked and disgusted with The State of Things — and also in love with the noises in our heads. The Prefab Messiahs’ work is never done.”

Released January 26, 2018

The Prefab Messiahs music with a 60’s influenced rock laden in lots of harmonies and layered vocals. Animation suits the music well and would especially appeal to collage kids–underground stuff, with much subtle, hidden commentary about life and its struggles without being heavy. Could watch it again and again and each time see something funny and new in the content.

There’s something quietly reassuring about the slow rise of Los Angeles quartet Froth. The gentlest wave of hype has greeted their first two albums, they’ve toured hard, and now with confirmation this week that they’ve signed to Wichita Recordings.

We’ll have to wait until February to hear the bands third long player, Outside (Briefly) , but they have this week given us a taster, in the shape of new single, Contact. Starting with a clip of an interstellar space chat, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a new track from Public Service Broadcasting, but once the motorik groove and pulsing bass kick in you’re into an altogether psychier-place, the sort of record Hookworms would make if they were feeling particularly mellow. Froth have spoken about dialling back the noise on this record; if the songwriting is as good as this, that might just reveal something spectacular.

Outside (briefly) is out February 10th via Wichita Recordings. Froth tour Europe next month,
