THE MOLOCHS (USA)
It’s not a surprise to see that the Molochs are on the same label that brought the world the Allah-Las. Like their fellow Los Angelenos, the Molochs are in thrall to that point in the mid-60s where beat groups, garage bands and psychedelic outfits began to merge into each other. There’s a drowsiness about their music – they tend towards the mid-tempo, Lucas Fitzsimons drawls his vocals, and the guitars jangle more than growl – that means they don’t quite tip over into Pebbles/Nuggets territory. Which means they can’t just get by on sneers and snarls; they need melodies, too. And when they hit the sweet spot, they’re a treat: Charlie’s Lips, powered by none-more-Shindig! organ, is terrific; The One I Love sounds like a lost demo from the Leaves; No More Cryin’ ups the energy, crossing over into early Stones-styled R&B. Genre fans will love it – it’s the perfect soundtrack to pulling on your Chelsea boots and black crew-neck sweater.
THREE MARIAS (DE)
Previously and briefly known as Thee Dropp, Three Marias is a trio (you guessed right) of expats based in Berlin. Stranded on the Spree shores while sailing from their homelands with the winds of change at their backs, the three boys – yes, boys – bonded through their common inspiration from the sound of 60s garage and surf rock, as well as the fuzzy growls of today’s wave of neo-psychedelic rock. Through reverb-drenched chords and dissonant, roaring riffs, Three Marias will take you on board in their cruise amongst punchy irony and dreamy melancholia.
PALM SQUIRREL (DE)
Palm Squirrel are a Berlin-based noise rock trio formed by Mathew Johnson, Paul Laburre and Jason Gold. Their debut EP is coming out on Baby Satan Records.
