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: Dreaming – Dreaming II


THE DREAMING. The band name sounds psychedelic and far spaced out, but nothing could be more wrong. The German trio released their second major opus back in 2006 on Psychedoomelic Records. While people can discuss if this is stoner rock, or doom metal, I would say it’s somewhere in the middle. IRON MAN and OBSESSED pops up in my mind right ahead. The guitar melodic are filled with hooks, and the melodies stuck on the brain immediately. The vocals somehow remind me of WINO (VITUS, SHRINEBUILDER etc). A great and underrated album still around these days for pennies.
