BANQUET – ‘Run To You / Mother Road’ 7″ out now !!!

“The once fruitful rock ‘n’ roll city of San Francisco is now a barren womb, fraught with the lasting effects of technological herpes. Thankfully a polyp known as BANQUET has formed and is screeching for freedom from the womb’s clutches. With dual ripping lead guitars, howling vocals and a rhythm section that can make a pregnant woman’s water break.”

Including members of Buffalo Tooth and Poor Sons.

PLANES OF SATORI - front 1500

PLANES OF SATORI – s/t LP out now !!!

“It’s not rare to find modern day bands inspired by that golden era of late 1960s and early 1970s Krautrock luminaries. Cosmopolitan cities like San Francisco and Brooklyn are rife with musicians tangled in the patch cords of yesteryear’s analog synth wizardry. There was even a time in the early 2000s when it was common to stumble upon a group of young, hip, ding-dongs decked out in red shirts and black ties, a-la Kraftwerk’s 1978 opus The Man-Machine.

Oakland, California quartet Planes Of Satori is not one of those bands. Sure, they’re largely informed by the rhythmic repetitions and mechanical mantras of what was happening in Germany during the late 1960s. But listen to their impressive debut album for Who Can You Trust? Records and you’ll understand why the band refers to their sound as “psychedelic Afro-Kraut”. They’re also equally steeped in the soulful grooves of Ethiopian jazz as well as the Zambian psych-punk of bands like Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou Dahomey and Witch (We Intend To Cause Havoc).

Not since Can’s Damo Suzuki has a frontman sounded as dangerously unpredictable as Alejandro Magaña. Raze Regal is one of those guitar players whose skills are so otherworldly; he’s always getting sweated by local musicians to join more bands. At its foundation, Planes Of Satori boast a well-oiled rhythm section so equally tight and loose, they could very well lure Ginger Baker out of his misanthropic kingdom.” – Eric Shea, Hot Lunch

Including members of Golden Void and Parchman Farm, Voices and Cousins.

PASTOR front 1000

PASTOR – “Wayfaring Stranger / The Oath” 7-Inch Vinyl OUT NOW !!!

Pastor started jamming in late 2012. The group consists of four young men with an intense love to the art of music. Their various influences can be drawn from your dad’s record collection (well, if he was actively listening from 1968 to 1978). The tunes are filled with fine riffs, spaced out solos and hard hitting rhythm sections. Yet Pastor tries to break through the niche and clichés by mixing the sound with a bands unique character.”

RAGGED BARRACUDAS – s/t 7-Inch Vinyl OUT NOW !!!

“In late 2013, Germany’s RAGGED BARRACUDAS tripped West to the Netherlands and cloistered themselves in the hallowed halls of Motorwolf Studios. No one’s sure what transpired on the other side of them gates of steel, but seemingly under duress they crafted a statement to the world. They emerged changed men. And now we have a record of their testimony.

The music emitted by the RAGGED BARRACUDAS does indeed come across like a pack of Shreddin’ Sphyraena. Yeah the drums get bashed, the bass slips ‘n’ skronks and the guitar tears holes in the universe. But this band is channeling something very different than what you might be casting for. As you listen to these tracks, imagine wandering through the moonless streets of mid-70s Cleveland at midnight where the only other lifeforms are packs of urban vermin banging out a rock ‘n’ roll symphony on the bent hoods of rusted Plymouths.

You really must hear this for yourselves, but on the three tracks they’ve released here (“Livin’ the Dream“, “Cheap Allure” and “Motor Jam“), RAGGED BARRACUDAS are channeling the raw scraping guitars of Poison 13; the sparse/spaced barroom punk vibe of Bugger Off! –era Stack Waddy & Third World War; the lost-astronaut-floating-through-space-hurling-toward-the-sun-vibe of Mick Bolton-era UFO; and the plaintive, tortured, yet soulful vocalizations of both early Roxy-era Bryan Ferry and Crocus Behemoth. C’mon, get yer heads bitten off!”

PLANES OF SATORI – “Son Of A Gun / Dichotomies” 7-Inch Vinyl OUT NOW !!!

“Imagine that you’ve spent solitary years traveling along the horizon, a liminal space where you glimpse only traces of the pure light that escape the chromospheric ring that cloaks our shared sun. Your static consciousness, quiescent, yet contented, is suddenly illuminated by radiant flux riding optical wavelengths.  Overcome by light, your remaining senses take over. Before your eyes acclimate to the awakening, music envelopes your being and transports it across the vast space stretching out in all directions. This source of this sonic embrace emanates from the Planes Of Satori, situated from a fixed point of 37°48′15″ N, 122°16′14″ W, but everywhere at once. Here you are. You’ve arrived. Welcome.

Son of a Gun and Dichotomies – the two aural journeys experienced on the debut single by Planes of Satori – are complementary, suggesting a cohesive force already present in this young band, yet distinctive pieces.  Gun, with its propulsive percussion, sinuous bass line, and bee sting fuzz leads, evokes Abraxas-era Santana, dripping sweat and smoke in a vibrating ballroom.  Dichotomies sets the controls for destinations unknown. Not something that many, if any, bands effectively channel or reflect, this tune would be right at home in the set of the Alice Cooper Group circa 1968. Picture Levity Ball with reverbed-out, arpeggiated Mick Bolton riffs over top and you’re getting warmer.

Both tunes are unrelenting and punishing, yet delicate and beautiful. Now that you’ve arrived, where will you go?”
