Polska Radio One- Волга (2014)

When the Russians aren’t downing those pesky passenger jets they’re making some pretty dope psychedelic/experimental rock. Polska Radio One’s single, Волга, is solid, and the sound doesn’t stick to any one genre, drifting in a dreamy state around fuzz and shoegaze sounds as well. And, they pull it off beautifully. Each time I listen to this pair of songs I hear more and more. 90% and highly recommended.


Yeti Island- Lifelight

Yeti Island can be described as shoegaze post-rock/ stoner/desert rock, a Norwiegan band that is still pretty unknown dispute having released three demos. Everything comes together well in these demos, fusing different influences into flowing songs that are almost reminiscent of soundscapes. Good music from a solid band, 84%.

Yo La Tengo- I’m Not Afraid of You and I’ll Beat Your Ass (2006)

A random tag must have attracted me to this band, because it has sat on the back burner for over a month, this album has two jam-session songs and easiest to describe as shoe-gaze/psychedelic jam-type band.
Listening to this I am amazed that I had never heard of these guys before, and while the influences of The Rolling Stones and The Grateful Dead are heard, but not dominant. Quite a good album, 88%, recommended.
