ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. FEATURING GEOFF LEIGH 'CHOSEN STAR CHILD'S CONFESSION' LP/CD MAY 15TH 2020

CHECK OUT THE FIRST TRACK NOW VIA THE BANDCAMP SITE

The career of Acid Mothers Temple has been an interesting and varied one. With well over 200 releases to their name since 1996, the band have certainly put in the hard yards. Recent times have seen a resurgence in their underground cult popularity.
 
Between Autumn 2014 and December 2015, core AMT members Tsuyama Atsushi (bassist / vocalist) and Shimura Koji (drums) left the band. Original members Makoto Kawabata & Hiroshi Higashi took this as their chance to create a new line-up and that this was a good chance to refresh the band with new members.
 
The last Acid Mothers Temple album released by Riot Season was 'Reverse Of Rebirth in Universe' in 2018 which was incredibly well received, and is now into it's fourth vinyl pressing. For that album the newly settled line up featuring new boys Wolf (bass), Satoshima Nani (drums) and Jyonson Tsu (vocals) re-recorded old AMT classics and a few new jams. The album and subsequent world tour were incredibly well received, not only by long time AMT diehards but also a whole new crowd who were discovering the band for the first time, either via the album of the show, which included the bands first appearance at Glastonbury Festival in summer 2019.
 
Now we finally get to 'Chosen Star Child's Confession', the latest studio album from the band which should be considered the genuine 'first album' of this new line-up with the added presence of Geoff Leigh (ex Henry Cow)

Now available for pre-order in three formats. Limited orange vinyl LP (500 copies), CD (500 copies) in card digifile sleeve with bonus track and a mail order only exclusive pink vinyl LP (240 copies) both vinyl editions come with download code that also includes the CD only bonus track of course

PERHAPS '7.0' LP OUT NOW

STREAM THE FULL ALBUM VIA THE BANDCAMP SITE

Boston's PERHAPS return with their seventh album '7.0' on March 27th via Riot Season. Once again it's a spaced out psychedelic wonder, but at the same time pretty hard to define genre wise. But if you enjoyed 'V' and 'Hexagon' be prepared to be enthralled once again. 

Limited edition pressing of 300 copies all on white vinyl in a reverse board printed outer sleeve. This album features guest appearances from our old friends Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple / Mainliner), Chang Chang (Hibushibire) and Isaiah Mitchell (Earthless)

" ... My stint with the cosmic beings through the telekinetic transmission had lead to one conclusion; that Perhaps have been in the works on something new. It seems as if they may have landed on the result which Haney had mentioned years ago. Through my continued interest I’ve procured the names of other members of this current project, which include: Sean Mcdermott, Tom Weeks, Ricky Petraglia, David Khoshtinat, Ben Talmi, Makoto Kawabata, Lucas Brode, Isaiah Mitchell, Olivia Kieffer, Tyler Skoglund, ChangChang. Though I can’t say exactly what is to come, it seems as if the ideas that were proposed during my initial meet may have been surpassed. Perhaps’ plans have begun to surface, and we are all at risk, for whatever that means. The great column and the vibrational prismic beings have shifted their attention to earthly matters, it would be foolhardy to not heed their warning. Though, self-preservation may be an impossibility"

OZO 'SATURN' LP OUT NOW

STREAM THE FULL ALBUM VIA THE BANDCAMP SITE

Due to a printing error with the album sleeves, the release date has been put back slightly. I'm still hoping to get the finished stock here start of next week (February 10th) and all mail order copies will be sent out then. But there will be a delay in getting copies into shops/overseas distros as they all require stock well in advance of the shop date. So please hang tight while I get it all sorted.

Formed from the ashes of Drunk In Hell and Blown Out, OZO are a blazing improvised alto sax free jazz rock trio made up from Graham Thompson (Ballpeen), Karl D Silva (Drunk In Hell) and Mike Vest. (Drunk In Hell, BONG, 11Paranoias, Melting Hand)
 
For fans of Pharaoh Sanders, John and Alice Coltrane. Improvised and experimental alto sax workouts, lead drums, fluid thunder bass and freak out guitar melodies. OZO Saturn is 5 tracks of black impulse meets harmonic stooges.
 
MIKE VEST TALKING ABOUT OZO
 
“I’ve been waiting to start a band with Graham Thompson and Karl D Silva. Karl used to play Sax in the Drunks (Drunk In Hell) and Graham is amazing drummer who plays in lots of bands. He can play everything and is really great at production and mixing. Couple of bands fell apart or just became unproductive, so I moved on, like I did. Graham’s drum track were so good and alive that I came up with the idea to have him leading the tracks. Added bass line and asked Karl to blast through in one take. The results came back and it sounded awesome. So here we are.”

KUNGENS MÄN 'HART SOM BEN' LP OUT NOW

STREAM THE FULL ALBUM VIA THE BANDCAMP SITE

Delighted to announce a new album by our Swedish friends Kungens Man is at the pressing plant, and due for release on November 29th.
 
The album will be available in two variants, at the same price. There's a black vinyl edition in a black and pink sleeve, and a pink vinyl edition in a pink and black sleeve. Both come with a printed inner sleeve and download code. Both are limited to exactly the same amount.
 
Nine months after their acclaimed album 'Chef' (also released on Riot Season) the band return with 'Hårt Som Ben’, a stunning follow up with a debut UK tour to coincide.
Echoes And Dust on ‘Chef’: “From pure psychedelic freak out, to exploratory ramblings, and all imbued with a sense of communal priority to create together a work of immense intelligence, Chef is an album which begs for continued listens and deep immersion. That it is so accessible too, makes that genius shine through even more so. Superb.”
At the end of May 2019 Kungens Män packed a couple of cars full of instruments and life supporting essentials and drove into the woods of Värmland to spend three days in the legendary Silence Studio. It has hosted recordings by bands and musicians like Bo Hansson, Motorpsycho, The Hellacopters, Bob Hund and Union Carbide Productions, the presence felt and seen all over the place.
 
In between watching VHS tapes with Twin Peaks, Miles Davis and Roskilde Festival 92, cooking pasta, sleeping in bunk beds, Bruce Bannering shirts and chilling in the sun, Kungens Män managed to record about 13 hours of music. Some of it will never reach your ears, but here’s the first slab made public – Hårt som ben – Hard As Bone. Not very hard, that is.
 
Kungens Män are :
 
Mikael Tuominen – guitar & bass
Hans Hjelm – guitar
Gustav Nygren – guitar
Magnus Öhrn – bass
Peter Erikson – synthesizer
Mattias Indy Pettersson – drums & percussion

SHIT AND SHINE 'DOING DRUGS, SELLING DRUGS' LP OUT NOW

STREAM THE FULL ALBUM VIA THE BANDCAMP SITE

Fifteen years and forty releases into their career, Shit And Shine return to
Riot Season with some trademark aural filth. As if you'd expect anything
different. Right?

'Doing Drugs, Selling Drugs' is nasty. To my ears it's a perfect mash up of those classic ealry S*S albums, and Craig's more recent dirge rock explorations with USA/Mexico. 

It's a one of pressings on transparent green vinyl with download code.

Way back in 2004, ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. released the CD only album 'Minstrel In The Galaxy' on Riot Season Records.
