"Their raucous set was like if the Velvet Underground had turned to the MC5 at their Boston Tea Party concert in 1968 and, instead of insulting them, had turned and made love to them—and that was how Lou Reed wound up wearing that dog collar. I couldn’t make out a single lyric, but did they really close the set with “Little Honda?”
-Dan Collins, Editor, LA RECORD
Swirling, distorted psych, bulldozed along by pounding primitive drums, fuzzed out vocals, all glued together with a heavy spaced out guitar drone. If that ain't the ingredients for record of the month my name is Prince Bloody William. Imagine if you will the best of THEE OH SEES jamming deep with MOON DUO, with the aid of some sort of retro type drug that only Brace Belden knows the name of and you would almost be right on the money. Heavy, without losing one single hook, repetitive without being the least bit boring and shamelessly stepped in the glory years of acid rock without being a boring regurgitating hipster. Be warned, this record will give you a contact high.

"No one can ever replace the legend that was Marc Bolan, but this 'Metal Guru'-sounding number from the self-described "electric sleaze/bubblegum psych" trio comes pretty close. It will certainly make you want to listen to T. Rex all night long." --NME
"Newly transplanted from Indianapolis, the three-piece will release their debut album Black Teeth & Golden Tongues ... on My Old Kentucky Blog's recently sprouted label, Roaring Colonel Records. Burnt Ones' fuzzed out garage anthems not only sound like the band's aforementioned contemporaries Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall, but their album art is also done by William Keihn, who did the covers of Help and the Ty Segall/Mikal Cronin Reverse Shark Attack LP." --Bay Bridged
The Mallard are a garage psych-rock duo from San Francisco. Their songs harness the naked abandon of 60's punk, but inject the form with a deranged spirit all their own. The overall feeling is of a reckless ascent (or of a delirious plummet). Close attention to tone and dynamics allow the band to explore unusual terrain – to grant access into unexpected realms of beauty, fear, and humor. . .
Greer McGettrick (guitar/vocals) and Dylan Tidyman-Jones (drums/vocals) met playing music in Fresno, California, and later moved independently to San Francisco. McGettrick helmed the Mallard through several incarnations (including stints as a quartet and a solo act) – and self-recorded an initial eight-song cassette tape – before inviting Tidyman-Jones to play drums with her in early 2011. Late summer of '11 will see The Mallard embark on their first major west coast tour, with a full-length album to be released in the fall.
"The Mallard wows me with the ability to mix a sort of top-down beach attitude with the gravel-and-glass of a good garage act. " --Sound on the Sound
"[E]very bit as gritty as the four-track cassette tapes she records her music on." --DLM
DJ set by Al Lover
Sample based stuff, mostly brought on by heavy rhythm and blues influence in all it's bastardized forms with strange effects for drug consumption.
