PlayItLoud! This impressive debut album is a crossover where "Surf" meets "Morricone" in the modern era. Slow and powerfull snare picking with the WahWah spicing up the vibe. Seriously crafted quality album.

zimoney The best tunes I have heard in a long time. Waiting for more to come. Favorite track: Crane Feather.

Blackula Jonez The genre tab & algorithm got me again. Usually when a band describes themselves as a blend of two other bands its easy to be incredulous but the "La Luz meets Khurangbin" description is close to if not a bullseye. Highly resonant Psychedelic Surf vibes, an aural massage to the soul. About to get the other solo album from the guitarist too. May even mark out & get some stickers :) Favorite track: Brushfire.
Keef thumbnail
Keef Twangy, melodic, instrumental psych rock. Played this more than most recently. Fits many moods. An excellent album. Favorite track: Black Sand Beach.

Kioea debuts their self-titled EP, inviting listeners into the world of psychedelic music. Named a “New and Notable,” by Bandcamp (5/7/22), Kioea uses the guitar to explore multiple musical lineages, from surf instrumentals to global influences.

Since its inception in 2019, Kioea has been a project led by electric guitarist Carand Burnet. Supported by bassist Ian DeCelli and drummer Jake Remignanti, the trio has ventured further into psychedelia with expansive compositions that include echoed guitar solos and fuzzed-out bass.

Burnet shares the process that shaped the EP:

“My artistic practice begins when I record guitar chords into a loop pedal or cassette machine and make a backing track. I play the track and overlay notes. My goal is to create a guitar melody acting like the voice singing each song. When satisfied with the structure, I bring the composition to my bandmates. Together we work out the dynamics and groove.”
