Psycho Sundae Mini Reviews – US Bands

Psycho King Dave – @whozthecat – has written some more mini reviews of 3 US bands who featured in today’s show:

Strangers Family Band – Cosmic Wine (Los Angeles, CA)
Strangers Family Band consist of two brothers and two school friends.  They’ve toured and shared stage with the likes of Os Mutantes, Night Beats and Wooden Shjips, have played Austin Psych Fest, have linked up with Jeff Davies (ex-Brian Jonestown Massacre) and Asteroid #4 are big fans yet they’re still relatively little known. Our highlighted track appears on their self titled debut from 2013, a fantastic throwback Psychedelic Rock album.  They’ve also just finished recording a new album which is due for release later in the year.
The Space Merchants – Where’s The Rest Of Life (Brooklyn, New York City)
Our featured track appears on their mightily impressive 2015 self titled debut album which can only be described as Psychedelic Country. This lot are the real deal, top musicians effortlessly churning out great songs with luscious melodies. You may recognise singer/guitarist Michael Guggins from Stoner Punk band Mount Olympus and drummer Carter Logan from experimental Psych band Squrl, however The Space Merchants debut remains a banker to be in our top 10 end of year list.
Night Beats – Hidden Circle (Seattle, Washington)

I think most of you will already be aware of Night Beats but those new to the party are in for a treat. Psych fuelled Garage Rock laced with fuzz guitar often compared to Texas 60’s Garage Rock – so no surprise that two of the founder members are originally from Texas.  Hidden Circle is from their wonderful Sonic Bloom album, an absolute must for all Garage Rock lovers……Enjoy!
