El Camino Real


Release Date: 6th June
Label: 429 Records / Universal Music Australia
Why You Should Care: Recorded in various studios, living rooms and wherever else was available, the album defines itself with harder sonic edges formed on influences of a road trip from Bakersfield to the border of Mexico. The companion album to 2013’s La Costa Perdida, the ever eclectic ska, pop, folk rockers ground themselves in the grit of the southern half of California and unearth what lies beneath their ‘back to the country’ vibe.

Falling For You


Release Date: 13th May
Label: Sun Pedal Recordings
Why You Should Care: What do you get when you combine old school heavy metal, psycedelica, rock n’ roll and hazy beats? The fifth-full length from the Ohio new-age hippies is a good way to find out!

If you want your first taste, check out the official stream for opening track, ‘Poisonberry Tide‘.

Stu Larsen
