The Waves are a Psychedelic Pop project based in Louisville, Kentucky. The band are effectively the solo project of Austin Garner (although there is a drummer for live gigs) and from the sound of this single he is completely immersed in all things psychedelic. ‘Drifting’ is a totally blissed out song for balmy summer daze and ‘(I Can’t Seem to Get) Away From You’ is a Wondermints/Jellyfish style Psych Pop piano ballad with gorgeous multi-tracked harmonies……….download this and wait for the album. Available as a “name your price” download from http://thewaveslouisville.com/album/drifting-away-from-youplus there is a very cool pic of Nico on the cover.

The group came to be from a musical project started by Singer/Songwriter Austin Garner in 2010. The group went through multiple lineups as the self titled album was recorded and released in 2014.

The group is currently a two piece consisting of Austin Garner on Guitar and Vocals with Tai Lendh on Drums

Humboldt County, California psych-outs WHITE MANNA present “Pan”, their fourth full-length since 2012. The LP is a split release – it’s the band’s second album for both Captcha Records and Cardinal Fuzz in the UK.

“Pan” is the equivalent to a surging psychedelic whirlwind, however you keep second-guessing what you’re hearing because little do you realize you’re stranded in the center of a scorching desert. That said, if mirages had their own sound, Pan would be exactly what you’d hear. Expansive tracks are detailed and stretched out across a massive plain, much like the landscape of the barren desert you find yourself trapped in. The LP is 6 tracks long and contains over 45-minutes of sun-baked space rock, giving the band ample time to chart their mysterious path to a sanctuary through the wicked heat of complete desolation – the question is whether or not you end up at your destination.

The 7-minute monster “Dunes II” is a perfect example of their heat-plagued sound, where guitars are seething and sweltering in a thick cloud of humidity that you can reach out and scratch with your fingernails. The air is heavy and you can feel your body warm as you breath in the smokey vapor they’re producing – vocals are rippling and warbled, while guitars growl and muster and eventually explode with progressive intensity. “Evil” is a 5-minute banger leaning heaviest on punk (a track of its own kind on the LP), unfolding with two invigorating chords that quickly gets your blood boiling in a storm of vibrant color. The track stays true to their own formula of lush landscapes with substantial repetition. They expose their spacey edge in “Beta Travelers,” garnering cosmic effects and sounds as they send you deep into a black hole without directions on how to return home – the rest is up to you. Album closer “Eshra” calmly floats in and suddenly places you into a full-on space rock environment, growing and expanding into a journey of its own. They’re finally creating that moment where you can sense your destination right around the corner, you just have to continue following the astral path they carve out a little longer to get there. Tom-tom heavy rhythms close out the track and trample over everything in sight as cascading guitars and bass swell into a crushing finale. The come-down begins to take a hold and cools everything into a smooth finish

Heard of THE BABE RAINBOW? Well, you should, because they’re going to be big. But not because we see them rivalling Lorde, but because there just isn’t any way to get their music out of your head. It’s beyond catchy.

To quickly fill you in, The Babe Rainbow is a three piece act hailing from the pristine Rainbow Bay (hence the name, probably) – which is relatively close to the Gold Coast in Australia. They have ties to Bleeding Knees Club, through their friend Jordan Malane (who is in BKC, duh). Most importantly, they’ve just offered up another single and accompanying video clip.

Brimming with ’60s nostalgia in both sight and sound, the Rainbow Bay guys have a new tune called ‘Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest’ along with a handful of shows in support of its release. Ahead of their mystical east coast tour, vocalist and drummer Angus and their latest single, vegetables and his penchant for croissants.
