Purson's debut, The Circle and the Blue Door, is pretty good. If you're looking for some psychedelic rock with some occult hints, check this out.

This is getting a lot of positive attention. People seem to think it's the best "occult rock" album of the year. Gotta say, Wolf People, Ghost, and Blood Ceremony's new records all shit all over it.

Nah. Not even close. Although I wouldn't doubt Blood Ceremony being better. But I don't really see Purson in that same vein. They're really more psychedelic rock with some elements of circus music, but not the same way stupid prog bands do it.

I mean occult rock is a stupid fake genre construct anyway so I'm not gonna split hairs here about which bands are and aren't really occult rock.

The Purson record is just way too sleepy for me. Slow tempos, nothing really heavy, meandering song structures.

For sure, dude. I think it's something new and cool. Based off the first single, I was expecting the album to be really rockin' like Leaning on Bear, but I really like the slower, spacey stuff on the record. I like how it sounds psychedelic, circus-like and nautical. I don't feel it's trying to sound sinister like other bands that get stuck with the occult tag like Ghost or Blood Ceremony. It's more flower child than that.

This is true. And I do think being non-evil is a cool approach to so-called occult rock! The new Wolf People is probably my second favorite album of the year, and there's not one reference to the devil on the whole thing. Just lots of Sabbath, Fairport Convention, Dungen and weed.

I haven't heard of that group, but it sounds interesting. I'll have to check that out.

They have zero promo in the U.S. I should know, I work for their label.

ravenheart has seen them a few times, of which I am infinitely jealous.

Aesop Rock's collab album with Kimya Dawson leaked. I wasn't ready for this.

It's also streaming here.

I didn't know they had a full album coming out! I thought they just had that one Daytrotter session. Awesome. "Delicate Cycle" is the bomb.

Savages also just released their debut, Silence Yourself. Rad stuff, a noisier Warpaint w/ more post-punk influence. Got "Best New Music" from Pitchfork. I'm really enjoying Psychic Ills, too.
