Infinite radio & the shadow people

Brendan from Infinite radio & the shadow people sent these over to me, I guess demos/rough mixes for their next album, and there’s something very primal, dark and interesting about these – certainly the noises are up my street, mining that dark vein of psychdelic rock/gothabilly and more harder/post rock. This is very much the dirty rough, raw garage/psych rock and roll that John Peel loved, and not sure many people are playing this on the radio anymore? Which is sad, since there’s a big revival in these genres at the moment…I don’t mean the kind of polite Horrors or Arctic Monkeys psych/rockabilly excursions, I mean something much darker, rawer and less commercial. So maybe this kind of garage will make a comeback too (I already correctly called the return of speed garage of the house sort ;-).

Someone get them on a tour with The Wytches, stat!

And if you like these, give them some love over at their Bandcamp where their previous album is pay what you want – more polished in production but very much that primal sound.

RC 184: Quiet Storm

A bumper show of 3 months worth of delayed music. Twas the storm’s fault, you see. A quiet storm…one you could hardly hear, but yet so loud.

A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. (121Mb, 180 mins)
