We recently stumbled upon this release while browsing the ever growing catalogue of bandcamp. The full name of this album is Mad Professor meets Prince Fatty in ‘The Clone Theory’. As we don’t know much about this artist, we will just let the music speak for itself through our three favorites songs.
We are getting very close to the end of the year. So we thought that instead of bringing you a list of our favorites albums of 2014, we should rather create a playlist with all our favorite tunes of 2014. Needless to say that this playlist is non exhaustive. Like the title says, we’ve handpicked all our favorite songs that could have been played by the radios. This being said, merry christmas to you all and thank you for being with us today.
Today we have something unlike anything you have heard before. For the first, and probably the only time, we are going to feature some vietnamese psych music. Apparently, this vietnamese march band comes from a really small village and a few years ago somebody uploaded a video of them on youtube. The video caught the attention of a music producer in Los Angeles and after a bit of a ramble he finally managed to get a hold of the band. He flew down to Vietnam and met up with them to record this 4 track EP called Khun Narin’s Electric Phin Band. Honestly, we would pay some good money to see these guys perform live. If you are as intrigued as we were the first time we listened to them, we recommend to listen to the last song of the EP on bandcamp.

Today we have the pleasure to feature the latest album from one of our favorite Australian bands ever. Sticky Fingers seduced us back in 2013 when they released their debut album Caress Your Soul and we’ve been looking forward to some new material ever since. We’ve easily played that album more than a hundred times in the last year. Needless to say that we had huge expectations for this album and honestly we are not disappointed. They definitely evolved a bit since last year and their music is a quite different but that’s for the best. They could not have stayed in the same style and top off Caress Your Soul, that’s just impossible. Anyway, Land Of Pleasure is available on itunes and we hope that they will make their way back to Europe soon.

One of the things that we love to do is to check back on the bands that we’ve already featured and see how they have evolved since their last release. Well, it’s been less than year since the Dirty Heads have released their third album and yet their new album is completely different than their last one. This time they decided to go for a more upbeat album with almost half of the tracks featuring various rappers such as Tech N9ne and Cypress Hill. If you’ve been following us for a while, you’ve probably noticed that we are really picky when it comes to rap. We weren’t completely convinced by the rapper’s performances so we decided to feature the other tracks from this album. If you want to judge for yourself, you can head to the band’s website and get your own copy of the Sound Of Change.
