Coyote Ghost Melodies
by Peaking Lights
(12 plays) | (0 fans)

The fifth album from LA-based husband-wife psychedelic pop duo Peaking Lights. Produced by Aaron Coyes in Peaking Lights’ Dreamfuzz studio over the past two years, the 12-track, 80-minute double LP was recorded using unorthodox means—though tape machines, breaking electronics to make sounds, writing melodies backwards then playing them in reverse—before being run through a 1976 16/8 Soundcraft Series Two mixing console.

Skull Pop
by Guerilla Toss
(8 plays) | (0 fans)

Formed in Boston, currently NY-based - Guerilla Toss has been labeled art rock, no wave, noise rock, and punk for their odd time signatures, dissonant instrumentals, combination of shrieking and melodic vocals, and added elements of disco, funk, and dance music. 'GT Ultra' is a clever nod to "Project MK Ultra", the 1950s/1960s government sponsored experiments using new experimental drugs (often LSD) to explore mind control, torture and forced confessions.
