I love MMOSS. And I love their new Only Children album. Put it on my Best of 2012 list. Check out this great new vid for “Hands.” And keep on the lookout for the upcoming MMOSS/Quilt split 10″ on BBiB Records in March!

I do believe you’ve heard you some Tame Impala before as these dudes are getting huge. But it’s for good reason, for once! A little justice for great music. Take a look & listen to their trippy new one for “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” (from the new Lonerism album)…
If you don’t have this entrancing album by the mysterious Swedes called GOAT yet, order it now. You will fall in love…
I’m fucking psyched about the new Neil Young & Crazy Horse joint, Psychedelic Pill, coming out on October 30th. Shit, the first track is 27.5 minutes long!
Following up this year’s single Americana release, Psychedelic Pill looks like it will dig in much further, with 8 songs spread over two CDs. And it will also be available on triple-vinyl. The sour news though is that the vinyl will cost you about $88.
Now I initially thought that this was due to Warner Brothers price-gauging knowing that they could count on a certain number of sales from both Neil-fetishists and vinyl-fetishists. But Jeff Conklin from East Village Radio tells me that it’s because Neil insists that the records be cut and mastered at a specific plant in Japan and the stock for the sleeve is from somewhere in Europe. All boosting the costs. I still call some major label shenanigans in there!
The above video is Neil & Crazy Horse playing the song “Walk Like a Giant” off the new double album at Red Rocks in August. Sounds fucking amazing. I might have to put down the dough to go see them at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn on December 3rd!
The track-listing for Psychedelic Pill is as follows:
1 Driftin’ Back (27:36)
2 Psychedelic Pill (3:26)
3 Ramada Inn (16:49)
4 Born In Ontario (3:49)
1 Twisted Road (3:28)
2 She’s Always Dancing (8:33)
3 For The Love Of Man (4:13)
4 Walk Like A Giant (16:27)
5 Psychedelic Pill (Alternate Mix)
Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s upcoming tour dates are as follows:
Wow, I haven’t heard Melody’s Echo Chamber until today when this song and video lit up my inbox. Now I’m entranced.
Melody’s Echo Chamber is the name given to the work of Paris-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Melody Prochet. Her self-titled album is out on Fat Possum on September 25th and was predominantly recorded and mixed with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker in Perth and finished off solo in France.
Press play and dig the visual and aural magick…
