01. Come On

Livingstone were formed in 2009 and just a couple of months ago released their first EP. Using the heritage of classic bands like AC/DC, Deep Purple, ZZ Top and Rolling Stones and blended with today's rock 'n' roll, they created 20 minutes of absolutely enjoyable music like the old times. Innovation is not a part of their game but pure, high energy rock 'n' roll was always about passion. You can stream it through their website. Check it out while is hot!

Nomega - Deimos
Nomega - Deimos

Year: 2012
Hometown: Timisoara, Romania
Tracklist: 
01. Nekkara
02. Samsara
03. Mountain Tusk
04. Sengsara



"We are not here to make music. We are not here to sing about feelings, social or political aspects and their influence on our lives. We are hear to worship sound." With this quote in mind, put Nomega's first work in your player and let yourself get carried away in a place you've never been before, somewhere in the middle of Romania's misty mountain tops. Be a part of Nomega's psychedelic ritual which takes places in the sacramental Carpathian forests. "Deimos" was recorded entirely live in studio by this excellent Romanian quartet by blending psychedelic riffs, space soundscapes and the jam's freedom of mind. Spoken words add an extra ceremonial layer, making their music even more mysterious. An amazing work from a new band, setting the basis for even great things to come.

Gnod - 5th Sun
Gnod - 5th Sun

Year: 2012
Hometown: Manchester, UK
Tracklist:
01. 5th Sun
02. 5th Dub





Following "Chaudelande Volume 2", Gnod the masters of dark arts released a 7" single containing two different versions of the same track. "5th Sun" follows Gnodism basic principle: "Deification through Repetition". It could be the perfect background music of a marching parade welcoming the return of a dopehead Cthulu.

White Manna - White Manna
White Manna - White Manna

Year: 2012
Hometown: Arcata, California
Tracklist:
01. Acid Head
02. Keep Your Lantern Burning
03. Mirror Sky
04. Don't Gun Us Down
05. Sweet Jesus


I found out about these guys through Adam from La Otracina and I have to say that it's one of the best suggestions for a long time now. Any poor souls out there, addicted to the fuzzy-swirling-space psych in the veins of White Hills, Loop, Spacemen 3 or even Hawkwind, should check White Manna's first release featuring five powerful tunes where reverb, fuzz and awesome riffs are the main characteristics. Top notch hypnotic, liquid, ecstatic psych rock which has the perspective to be evolved or extended in some kick ass, long jamming process. Great work!

The Conspiraters - Jesus Rock

Year: 2012
Hometown: Minsk, Belarus
Tracklist:
01. Get Higher
02. The Whopper
03. Jesus Rock




Coming from Minsk, The Conspiraters are a trio released their debut EP few months ago. Three tracks of the finest heavy blues rock out there waiting to be discovered. As far as I remember I haven't heard anything coming from Belarus so The Conspiraters lead the way here. They're going to record a second EP soon so stay tuned. "Jesus Rock" along with a live studio improvisation can be streamed and downloaded through their soundcloud page.

Sungod - Cuts From The Ether
Sungod - Cuts From The Ether

Year: 2012
Hometown: Austin, Texas
Tracklist:
01. Gas Is Better Than Gas
02. Plasma Frequencies
03. Constellation Of Icons
04. Kraut Schulze



Ah, Austin! It's always a pleasure checking a band from this corner of out planet. "Cuts From The Ether" is recorded live at KVRX last August but it was released a month ago on cassette. They're mainly moving in kraut rock, kosmische spectrum using a lot of old-school synths, guitar swells, pounding drumming and  pumping bass lines you're going to love. The final track "Kraut Schulze" is cassette's peak in my opinion. An intense, lysergic trip to outer space. The truth is that "Cuts From The Ether" was my first contact with Sungod and also a great motive to dig them more...
