Turzi + "Voyage" + Health
Turzi, A (Kemado 2007)
French psych band follows up the pretty ace Made Under Authority with A, due out in September on Kemado. Goblin synth horror, Spacemen blastoffs and droning jams melt from one to the next.
Turzi - "Acid Taste"
Turzi - "Afghanistan"
Various Artists, Voyage: Facing the History of French Modern Psychedelic Music (Kemado 2007)
Maybe even better is Voyage, a window into a French psych scene that I didn't know existed ... hadn't heard of any of the bands off this except Turzi, who curated. Skewed Syd Barrett pop, laser-focused Hawkwind rock space exploration ... 15 revelations. Between this stuff and the new Dungen, Kemado is pretty stacked on the modern psych front. Prepare for takeoff.
Edit: Forgot to mention, this comp. is a free download if you buy the Turzi record.
Aqua Nebula Oscillator - "Ready to Fly"
Crystal Castles / Health split 7" (Lovepump United 2007)
L.A.'s Health throws down a relentless post-punk racket on this single with Toronto's Crystal Castles. They've also got a full album on the way, both on Lovepump United who's put out Indian Jewelry among others ...
Health - "Crimewave"
