Music Releases 07-20-18
77:78 is the new project from Aaron Fletcher and Tim Parkin, card carrying members of the musical kaleidoscope that is The Bees. Crate diggers and music nuts, 77:78's music possesses snatches of the fried, post-sandbox loveliness of The Beach Boys Smiley Smile, the clatter of King Tubby's junkyard dub, the childlike playfulness of early Syd Barret and a gentle seabreeze of sublime West Coast harmonies. Their debut album, Jellies, sounds like staying up late with a friend who's playing you all the best bits of their mind-blowing record.
1,2 Kung Fu is the debut album from Boy Azooga, the psych-flecked musical vehicle for Cardiff's Davey Newington. This multifarious musical mission takes inspiration from the likes of Sly & The Family Stone, Caribou, Black Sabbath, Outkast, Van McCoy, Ty Segall and The Beastie Boys. Boy Azooga are a reverent ensemble churning out rave-tinged rock that hints at a progeny of both Can and the Happy Mondays. Limited Edition Pink Vinyl
