RH Digital Distribution: Psychic Sun – Rising Suns And Fallen Angels

Front cover

Australian band Psychic Sun was formed around a cacophony of retro swagger and modern mayhem. Featuring Mitch Tighe (guitar, vocals), Geoff Williams (guitar, vocals), Josh Holloway (bass, keys), Marques Bragg (drums and Rebecca Fitton (percussion, vocals), as a unit the band blend supercharged groove and dirt with ambient, psyche-based textures. Their unique sound is encapsulated in their 2014 self-produced debut album “Rising Suns And Fallen Angels”.

So far the record has made rotation on Triple J Unearthed Radio and various Australian independent stations, and has featured on blogs such as http://www.sludged.com, deadwrong.de in Germany and Recyclable Sounds in Russia.

ALBUM OF THE DAY: Buffalo – Volcanic Rock

Image

When speaking of heavy music from the early 70’s Aussie scene, I often hold MASTERS APPRENTICES high. The 2nd band that are really deserving to be re-discovered is BUFFALO. Hosting Peter Wells in his pre-ROSE TATTOO era, the 3 first albums from BUFFALO and sheer heavy grinding guitar madness, taking more influence from North American bands like SIR LORD BALTIMORE and BANG, rather than the more blues influenced sounds of the UK acts like BLACK SABBATH. This is heavy, this grinding madness, and in front of everything, this is great music !
