After "Bijous Bijous" birthday party it was so sunny in the morning that we decided to have a after party in the Westerpark in Amsterdam, few beers later this dude appears out of nowhere and starts taking his clothes off and screaming into the sun "Im so depressed", after a while the dude disappeared. On our way back home we heard a lady screaming for help, guess what the same dude wanted to kill himself but probably changed his mind and he was hanging on the canal bridge all naked, we help him out and told him to go home and sleep. picture by Vicent Teen

Simply stunning and overwhelming track and video, the San Diego dark/tropical band Tropical Popsicle is making magic with a amalgamations of epic concepts, it starts with a easy association to psych California sunny surf-rock but soon it moves into dark synth-wave vibes, pulsating gloom horny bass and Joy Division and Bauhaus ghosts dancing and jumping of joy, didn't knew about this band but will keep it under my radar for sure. "The Tethers" is taken from the S/T EP released in 2011 and a LP is expected this year
New ep from The Growlers is just what we need in Amsterdam, we have no sun and the rain just wont stop. The Growlers new 7" is full of uplifting infectious sick grooves, psych-dubby twisted with glorious California garage-surf vibes, superb pot jams for the summer and in short pure class ♥.
In Austin TX is business as usual, a endless source of sick music and the last offering to leave the box is a trio of wild punk gals by the name of Foreign Mothers, the debut EP "DUH" came out just a few days ago on Thread Pull Records and its very promising, "Possessive / Plural" is a blast on repeat.
♥ BLACK STROBE ♥ new single and video, the Parisian kings and forefathers of Electro have been and will always be my supa favourites, totally looking forward to the new album !!!!!!

Gorgeous video and uberlicious 60s psych gem by the Copenhagen band Halasan Bazar, "Tin Foiled" is taken from the LP "How to Be Ever Happy" out in August on Moon Glyph.
Big Nils is a raw and noisy punk band from Northampton, Mass. This bands becomes of some importance once i knew that the daughter of Sonic Youth Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore is the leading singer, beside the family roots they are extremely good too and there is a familiar sonic distortion and aggression in their music than can be seen as the Sonic Youth legacy. Must be quite overwhelming to have a name like Coco Gordon-Moore attached to you
