Ryan Allen - What A Rip (Futureman Records) 2021      $12





Forgoing his “Extra Arms” this time around, “What A Rip” is a brand new “solo” record from Pop Rocker Ryan Allen. “With ‘What A Rip’, Allen gives us a 2020-themed record that doesn't try too hard to be a 2020-themed record. Like so many other musicians and artists, he made the best of a bad situation last year and used his pandemic downtime to focus on creative pursuits.  In terms of musical inspirations, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks and The Who are all over this record. While it's fun to joke about who he might be ripping off from track to track, he does a wonderful job of stealing creatively.

The Total Rejection - A Travers Les Mythes Du Temps (Raving Pop Blast Records UK) 2020    $18




With their first three studio albums featuring a whole host of sounds and arrangements, we often wondered how the band would pull their songs off live.  Well now we know!!  These are LIVE recordings (from over three days) by the Bristol (UK) based Garage-Punk-Pop-Psych band.  Recorded live with no overdubs (just a quick levels/balancing). The English translation of the album’s title is “Through The Myths Of Time”  The recording is raw and messy, but also wild and rocking!

The Dials - That Was The Future (Gear Disc Records UK) 2017      $16



              

There’s much to delight fans of Anglophile psych and early prog (think Charlatans UK meets Caravan) in The Dials’ 2017 effort.  Strong hooks, Hammond and Vox organs, modular synths and swirling guitars abound, however their inventiveness clearly show they are not retro revivalists.

The Dials - The End Of The Pier (Gear Disc Records UK) 2013       $16 





Released in 2013, The Dials’ third album touches on monster acid rock (Syd-era Pink Floyd on "Mondo Space"), blissed-out acoustic balladry ("Over The Fence") and forgotten underground spy movie theme music ("The Crawling Man") on a twang-tastic, Farfisa-fuelled, genre-busting, twisted seaside pop trip! "The End Of The Pier" makes impeccable references to "Nuggets"-inspired garage, English pastoral psychedelia and surf twang.

The Dials - Companions Of The Rosy Hours (Gear Disc Records UK) 2009 $15





Their 2009 sophomore effort takes in influences from psychedelic pop, classic country, American and English folk music, surf and much more. A tightly focused burst of strange energy that still manages to roam all over the sonic landscape.

The Dials - The Dials (Gear Disc Records UK) 2007      $16 

  


The 14 tracks sprawl all over the stew of the last 40 years of music bringing to the surface nuggets of country music that have been seasoned in the cosmic stew and fused with all manner of other ingredients, their absolute control over their craft allowing them to combine strange flavours into a satisfying tasty whole. A sprawling stylistically diverse work that is almost flawlessly executed,
