Southern California label RidingEasy Records has a lot afoot, as usual, so here's a quick rundown
of all the current and upcoming action:
1) The fifth edition of the RidingEasy Potcast is out now, featuring DJ Bonghits playing 2 hours of rock 'n' roll, psych, doom and pure bliss. Featuring sneak peaks at new signings and upcoming releases. Check out the full playlist and stream or download via Soundcloud or Mixcloud.
2) Brown Acid: The Second Trip: The second installment in the ongoing compilation series of rare 60s-70s proto-metal singles just hit the streets, fittingly, on April 20th... and the world still hasn't come down off it. Dangerous Minds hosted the full album stream, dance/DJ trendsetter mag Wax Poetics launched Iron Knowledge's long-lost infectious detuned bass warble motif that sampling DJs would kill for HERE. Consequence of Sound dropped the first tab: Ash's "Midnight Witch".
Watch/share the brand new video for Brown Acid's Spiny Norman, whose "Bell Park Loon" had never even been released until now: YouTube.
3) Electric Citizen release their anticipated sophomore album Higher Time next Friday... the 13th! The Cincinnati quartet is currently on the road throughout the UK & EU supporting Wolfmother. Listen to three new tracks via Soundcloud.
4) Slow Season just announced their barnstorming (literally... it was recorded on a farm in their central California home) third album via Consequence of Sound. Just one listen to the lead track from the forthcoming Westing (out July 8th) and you'll know why everyone's going crazy over "Y'Wanna".
5) Salem's Pot recently announced their forthcoming album -- a hazy fever dream of dark, thrilling excess. It's equal parts of The Cramps' Psychedelic Jungle, Pentagram's Relentless, Roky Erickson's The Evil One and The Stooges Raw Power, as much heirs to Deep Purple as Dead Moon... metal, garage punk, acid rock and a belladonna trip gone wrong. Hear/share "Just For Kicks".
And, coming this summer and beyond, more mind-blowing new releases from bands both familiar and new... Please get in touch for more information, interviews, guest list requests and anything else you might need.
