Vintage Cucumber – “Hagebutten Tee (Am Laufenden Band…)” {Ambient/Experimental}

I know what you’re thinking: The only reason why we gave this band a listen was because their name is Vintage Cucumber, but I’m telling you right now that you’re wrong. We gave this band a listen because their music was described as “psychedelic” and “krautrock,” their song titles are in German…and yes, because their name is Vintage Cucumber. This song is off their Tee Sessions EP which you can buy as a name-your-price download here.

Dead Sea – “Before We Die” {Psych Rock/Shoegaze}

Listening to this song will stir up all sorts of emotions inside of you that you never knew existed; so much so that you may even find yourself reaching for a box of Kleenex…not that we did that or anything…This is actually the band’s first official song which is pretty damn impressive in itself, and it’s being released on the Beef Wellington Records Compilation.

The Plum Magnetic – “The Electric Jungle” {Experimental/World Music}

Featuring a potpourri of different instruments like the 6-string electric banjo, the tabla, the cello and even a steel pan, Plum Magnetic’s new record takes the art of creating world fusion music to a whole new level. (Not to mention that just listening to this track will make you feel as if you’re in the middle of a glorious, 20-hour-long dream…) This track is off their new album Terra Animata and you can buy it for $5 here.

Plastic Pinks – “Sleepwalking Macadamia” {Garage Rock/Punk}

We were sent a link to stream Plastic Pinks​/​Las Tias’ new split release, and from Plastic Pinks’ hyperactive “Aah-Oh-Aah,” to Las Tias’ psychobilly-style “Vision” as well as their bluesalicious ”Look At Me,” it was a struggle to choose just one track because they were all so damn good. If you want to give it a listen (yeah, you do) check it out here and buy it for as little as $5.

Slippertails – “I Will Peel You Open” {Alternative Rock} + Free download

The fuzzy guitar section, the dark melodies, the Wintersleep-style vocals…this track had all the ingredients for what we consider a perfect recipe for any good tune; (not to mention the album cover is pretty dope too). This is a single off the band’s new album There’s A Disturbing Trend which was released on January 14th via Fleeting Youth Records, and you can buy it for $4 over at their Bandcamp page.
