Album of the Day:
Zombi – Anthology
Posted: May 22, 2015 at 2:56 pm
Zombi - Anthology

Praise for Zombi‘s Anthology from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Thanks Relapse, you’ve been doin’ some great reissue work lately, this is one of several old faves we’re listing this week that you’ve brought back (see also Bedemon and Pan-Thy-Monium).

Pan-Thy-Monium – Khaooohs & Kon-Fus-Ion

Pan-Thy-Mon - Khaooohs & Kon-Fus-Ion

Praise for Pan-Thy-Monium‘s Khaooohs & Kon-Fus-Ion from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: What in the name of Raagoonshinnaah? Relapse has reissued this old eccentric AQ-fave on vinyl!

galley beggar - silenceandtears

Lovingly pinched from The Active Listener: Kent based troubadours Galley Beggar unveil their third long player Silence and Tears and it is something rather special indeed.
