Psymon Spine brings electro-psych rock to Alphaville 1.27

While electronica meets rock is hardly new at this point, Psymon Spine makes it sound like a totally novel idea. The Brooklyn group emphasizes the psychedelic and adventurous aspects of both genres, bringing in complex rhythmic samples, EDM beats, circling harmonies, and even folky guitar interludes. The results capture the intricacy of headier electronic music with the youthful energy of the indie rock of the early ‘00s reinassance (think Animal Collective and TV on the Radio). You can experience Psymon Spine's unconventional sound live on January 27th when they take the stage at Alphaville. – Cameron Carr

Hot Garbage - "Max Blonda" EP, Playin Smiling Buddha 01.20

Psychadelic garage rock group Hot Garbage just released a brand new EP at the end of the last year called “Max Blonda”. They have some unique characteristics that set them apart from some of the other top notch garage groups in Toronto right now. The main is the jazz influenced drums. That along with the menacing keyboards and atmospheric vocals their tunes take you for a serious ride. All can be heard on the track “Kimono Dragon” from their latest release. Hot Garbage plans on heading to the States for a tour this summer but first they will be playing The Smiling Buddha on January 20th as part of Exclaim’s Class of 2018 Series. – Kris Gies





Wax Mistress return with trippy "Mind Designs"

It's hard to get tired of trippy Beatles-inspired psychedelia when it just makes you feel so good. And that's exactly what Wax Mistress deliver on their second single "Mind Designs". "Fill your minds / With their designs / Cellophane tides," the chorus suggests, invoking "Lucy in the Sky"-esque imagery over swimming-in-reverb guitars and panning drum fills. Stay tuned for Wax Mistress's full EP soon, and catch them at The East Room on January 24! Listen to "Mind Designs" below! - Chris Thiessen

Debut Prom Acid Album Available for Streaming & Download

The duo of Prom Acid just released their debut album. Holy Moldy twists creepy noise-engulfing trance, in a chaotic heady kaleidoscope. Fuzzy, synth-induced grooves and heavier guitar-anchored tracks mingle together, warping the mind. Continuously shifting the ground below one’s feet, a leapfrogging level of experimentation radiates.





HNRY FLWR shares video for "Little Brother," plays Knit on 01/19 w/ Uni & Blame Candy on 1/19

Since releasing debut EP Flowerama this past summer, Brooklyn art rockers HNRY FLWR have been on a roll. The brainchild of songwriter David Van Witt just unveiled a second video for single “Little Brother” (streaming below). While the sound comes across as atmospheric and almost eerily otherworldly, the video is comprised entirely of home movie footage from David's childhood. The song's lyrical content reveals an introspective look at the cycle of violence and bullying learned at an early age. “Beating little brothers out of love. There is still a violence that I'm feeding. Compensating for the fear that I'm not tough. Finding tiny little brothers within you.” The video presents a poignant look at childhood innocence juxtaposed against the songs foreboding subject matter.  HNRY FLWR will open for glam-rockers Uni and Blame Candy at the Knitting Factory on 1/19. -Dave Cromwell
