Moody Cosmos Reveals New Psych-y Single

Buffalo’s fearless freak Moody Cosmos are back with a heavy curveball of a new single called “Take Me Home” that’s arrived right on time. Trading psychedelic space rock for unhinged psych garage rock that’s every bit as out there as anything Peter Cahlstadt has done, but with a glorious flaming car crash ambiance that feels so right…

Tonight: Dogs in Stereo

Dogs in Stereo is a relative of Travis Morrison’s Travistan or some of Jawbox’s work. Shrouded in lo-fi, Dogs in Stereo thrive on telling acoustic pieces often paired with classic retro drum tones and completely morphing effects like chorus. Their latest release, I Peaked in ’07, is a moody, deep twisted saga. “Finally Feelin’” is…

Moody Cosmos Reveals New Single

Last week, Moody Cosmos–the neo-psyche garage project of Mooses frontman Peter Cahlstadt—dropped a new single, making our early spring a bit more exciting. The explosive track, titled “Old Sarge’s Drop Zone,” is a departure from the outfit’s first single, the soulful “Rocky” (which, unfortunately, has disappeared from the depths of the internet). The new track is…

Joe Mason – I Sold My Soul For Five Dollars

With so many colleges concentrated along the 90 from Rochester to Fredonia, intense winters, and a long time epicenter for sonic exploration in Dave Fridmann’s Tarbox Road studio in the woods outside Fredtown, Western New York should totally be a hotbed for modern psychedelic music and for fans of music that makes ears feel WEIRD.
