Firefriend – Fantasma – São Paulo, Brazil
Firefriend – Fantasma is a dark psychedelic rock album with shoegaze, post-rock tenancies. This latest album have the eerie dark bass steady almost beat machine like live drums and extended reverberating and echoing guitars with dense fuzz tones.
The vocals sound great coming in with ominous notes and reverb to draw the psych factor. The songs are shimmering reflections of sound refracted in the icy canyons of dark imagination. The cold reverb tones can be very chill and mellow or blast with killer fuzz tones and laid back drumming.

Formed in London, UK, in 2016, Geography Of The Moon is a collaboration between singer/pianist Virginia Bones and multi-instrumentalist /producer Andrea AKA Santa Pazienza. After touring for several years they moved back to Glasgow where Andrea’s family is originally from.
Largely influenced by bands from the 80s and the the 90s, somewhere between psych rock, post punk, new wave and indie rock, they create their own brand of mashed up styles: Psychwave. Tongue in cheek lyrics and hypnotic looped layers of guitars, synth and drum machines.

Justin Frew – The Night That Liza Glamphist Comes To Town – Wollongong, Australia
Born from a love of honky-tonk, delta blues, cowboy psychedelia, rockabilly western swing and all the early incarnations that were the sullied parents of rock & roll, Justin Frew lives the music he loves. Punk rock in attitude. Wild west in nature. Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer. A man who wears many hats well.
Songs of loss, redemption and all the scary places in between.
Late nights, early mornings. All that happens between the first drink and the last. The moments that can make you or break you. Love earned, love spurned. Clarity and regret. Life, brutal yet beautiful.
There is nothing staid or reverential about his songs. Those influences all collide and become something unique. Drawn lovingly from the past but reimagined in a dark, sinister modern country blues. All delivered in a world-weary baritone.
Over the last 30 years Justin has played with, and shared stages with some of the finest musicians in Australia. He sings about those dark moments where humour hides. Laughing at our frailties and follies. Justin Frew knows those places well, and will take you back there. And hopefully, out the other side.
