Weekly RecommNeds: The Holydrug Couple / Opossom

I’m back!  Easing into my 2013 listening, may reach back to some of last year’s leftovers while moving on with this year’s goodies. Enjoy!

The Holydrug Couple:  Noctuary

Lest you thought it was just a 2012 fad, an early favorite from the first month of the new year is a psych-rock keeper following in the footsteps of Tame Impala et al. Hailing from Santiago, Chile, the duo  play a dreamy out-of-body music that’s equal parts cowboys on the windswept prairie and outerspace voyage. Lots of ear pastry to gorge yourself on here: layers of tripped-out guitar fuzz and gooey bass and beyond.

Opossom: Electric Hawaii

Keeping the dreamy otherworldly, other-side-of-the-world thing going, Opossom, from New Zealand (and lead former member of Unknown Mortal Orchestra Ruban Neilson) are a psychedelic band more on the pop side of the spectrum – a groovier, more beachy sound.  In fact, the music on this superb album is best summed up in its title Electric Hawaii – kind of a Beach Boys meets the Flaming Lips meets Beck kind of thing with gauzy harmonies, drum-machine beats and infectious songs. Check it out!
