Pretty Lightning - A Magic Lane Of Light And Rain

From Saarbrücken, Germany, comes Pretty Lightning, a band consisting of Sebastian Haas and Christian Berghoff. The duo has recently released their sophomore album,  A Magic Lane Of Light And Rain, via Cardinal Fuzz and Sound Effect Records.

Except, maybe, for the closing track "Graveyard Howls", forget about the delta blues of their debut album, There are witches in the woods. This time, the duo has embraced the cosmic sounds inherited from the 70's krautrock bands. As if they were finally a peace with their German legacy. 

This new record is psychedelic to the bone and it will melt your brain like some magical mushrooms. The Eerie vocals drenched in reverb are inducing strange atmospheres and unusual colours.  A Magic Lane Of Light And Rain is what the title of this record promises, and it delivers and then some. Just close your eyes and let Pretty Lightning take you on a trip to the inner you.

The WILD WILD WETS - "14th Floor"

The new french label BIG TOMATO, from Bordeaux, recently released "14th Floor", the amazing debut full length of San Diego, CA, new psychedelic surfers The WILD WILD WETS.

The band includes Mike Turi - Vocals / Synth; Taejon Romanik - Guitar; Yegor Mackey - Bass; Marco Piro - Drums + John Kelley, the projectionist, who takes care of all the visuals effects. The word has it that these shows have been compared to Jefferson Airplane 1966/67 when their music incorporated Jerry Abram's Headlights visual art performances.

WWWets' songs are drenched in reverb and  delay and find their inspiration in 60's garage rock,  surf, kraut, and psychedelia. And if the album's title is a obvious nod to the 13th Floor Elevator,  one can also feel the influence of Spacemen 3 or the Velvet underground

The wild wild wets are organically blending  together  old and  new sounds  in one big sonic maelstrom to  create  something  authentic and perfectly original and fresh. They take the listener to a cosmic roller-coaster ride through his brain and leave his mind panting for more.... The result, at the end of the trip, is the album "14th Floor".

Watch the Wild Wild Wets perform a stripped down version of the title track of their latest album. 

And the electric version of the same track:

Reno based SLOVENLY RECORDS recently released the sophomore full length effort of the Dirty Fences a bunch of wild weirdos from New York City.

One track on this record is named "Endless Party" and this is exactly what it's all about here : a great rock n roll album to have a fun time with. 

I personnally prefer the sing-along power punk side of the Dirty Fences. When the band is churning out muted driving guitars and ultra catchy chorus the Dirty Fences are not too far away from the likes of Matthew Melton and Warm Soda, which is perfect in my book. Check out for example "Judy (Don't Go)" and its funny tribute video to girlgroups like the Shangri-Las, "Give Me A Kiss" or the previously mentioned "Endless Party". 

For for those of you who prefer some heavy kick ass action, go to "Heartbeater" or the album's title tune and "High School RIP" that bring to mind the classic 70's Alice Cooper. A killer and brilliant album for the summer that i totally recommand!

Order it here (on LP, CD or Cassette):

These crazy guys will tour the USA this summer, check them out live:
