This month we welcome:
The Hattie Carrolls www.myspace.com/hattiecarrolls
It’s clear straight away that the Hattie Carrolls, taking their name from a Bob Dylan song and with nary a stoner epic in sight, are a psychedelic-influenced band more interested in writing songs to fall in love with than to fall asleep to. Whatever they turn their twelve hands to, the Hattie Carrolls come out at the end of it with songs that get stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.
“One of the few remaining ambassadors for psychedelic music in Britain but definitely inspiring enough to start a new trend” Echo FM
Dead Rabbits www.myspace.com/dead-rabbits
Armed with nought but their dreamy vocals and space-rock guitars, the Dead Rabbits have arrived to knock you down with a feather. Plucked straight from Bradford Cox’s impressive plume and soaked in additional reverb overnight, the band have been waving it around shows in Southampton, Bristol and London to dazzling effect. Fresh from supporting rising stars Yuck, expect the Dead Rabbits to be caught in a few headlights of their own in 2011.
Taking influence from bands such as The Velvet underground, Spaceman 3 and The Beatles Dead Rabbits have created a dark, brooding psychedelic sound that needs to be heard.
The Lucid Dream www.myspace.com/theluciddream08
The Lucid Dream possess that most prized quality in a psychedelic rock band: the ability to write songs that carry lengthy, mesmeric and progressive grooves whilst remaining utterly thrilling from start to finish. It’s a neat trick, and the Carlisle band have got every component part here in spades: menacing vocals, dirty guitar riffs, mysterious lyrics, and a highly impressive rhythm section that evokes the spirit of the Jesus and Mary Chain in their heyday. They can already count Steve Lamacq and the folks at BBC 6 Music among their fans; check them out before the rest of the country catches up.
“To find a band like the Lucid Dream, whose name so perfectly compliments their namesake is utterly enlightening.” Artrocker
