NEW MUSIC: Tjutjuna

We first came across the name Tjutjuna when they released their split tour cassette with Woodsman in the spring of 2011. But for unexplainable reasons, the challenging name slipped our minds and may have fallen into the abyss were it not for the keen ears of DGB contributor Johanna Andersson and our good pal Marc “Mike” Norman “Newman.” The group charts a similar neo-kraut course as labelmates Woodsman, with droning, transportive sound odysseys, totemic drum circles and shimmering guitars. Earlier this week, they released their new cassingle, “Desert Song” b/w “Schulze and Shaffner” on Fire Talk and you can now hear/download both tracks below. Also be sure to check out Tjutjuna’s recent Beyond Beyond is Beyond session on East Village Radio.

Purchase the cassette single via Fire Talk.

NEW MUSIC: Woodsman – “Tone Cloak”

Mystic Places EP

You may have heard Woodsman featured in previous playlists on this blog. But, if not, its time you heard from this Denver/Brooklyn psych quartet. Over the past few years, the group has made waves on the psych scene with five studio releases and a relentless touring schedule. Their organic, mostly instrumental, tunes often unfold like musical journeys with propulsive, loopy drones and reverb-drenched guitar wails. Below, hear the first track, “Tone Cloak,” off Woodsman’s Mystic Places EP out October 25on guitarist Trevor Peterson’s Fire Talk Records. Woodsman is now on tour and will play NYC’s Cakeshop with Alex Bleeker and the Freaks on Thursday.
