Beyond Beyond Is Beyond

"The hypnotic 11-minute instrumental track builds slowly from distant, shuddering atmospherics to an imposing sound that is at once monolithic and spacious."-The Wall Street Journal

This is an album of ambient guitar wizardry from J.R. Bohannon..

"On Coke Weed's "Mary Weaver", the New England-based quintet's fourth release, the band's longstanding love for the glam/art-rock axis, class of West Berlin, comes to the fore. The result is a panorama that encompasses Bolan's boogie, the kraut/R&B hybrids of Bowie's "Station to Station", and the desperate romanticism of Roxy Music and Iggy Pop.

As Coke Weed continues to refine its trademark hard-edged choogle, "Mary Weaver" brings a new emphasis on grimy dance work-outs. On songs like...

Very nice, very song oriented spacey rock music with nice melodies and good singing; only thing it makes me think of comparing it to is like an intergalactic Emmit Rhodes!

"...rekindles the excitement I vividly recall about music in the early to mid 70's...deep shit, where creativity and homage go together and fit like the best pair of well worn Levis...warm breezes on summer evenings and ice cold frosties go down like candy...like Gerry Rafferty and "On The Third Day" ELO collide in an alternate..

"Eerie Wanda isn’t a person, but rather the name given to the relentlessly memorable recorded results of an album delivered by Croatian/Dutch singer-songwriter Marina Tadic, with a little help from her (incredibly talented) friends, including (but not limited to) the phenomenal rhythm section of Jacco Gardner’s band.

While the word “eerie” isn’t the adjective that springs to mind most readily when listening to “Hum,” there are several others eager to take its place – beautiful, striking and...

Guitar & vocals, bass and drums stoner/psych sounds from Baltimore via Los Angeles.

"The name, The Entrance Band, can conjure images of secret entryways, or it can represent the feeling of being dazzled and delighted – quite literally, to be..

"Less than a year after the release of “Holy Water Pool” – Heaters’ debut, a crushing, revelatory psycho-surf-rock anointment-as-album – there are no apparent signs of distress to the engine that powers this Michigan-made vehicle of sound. To the contrary, Heaters are operating at a higher horsepower than ever before, as evidenced by the 2016 release of “Baptistina.”
“Baptistina” glimmers to a greater degree than anything Heaters have previously unleashed, a full-spectrum sheen that shines across the..

"In the year 2015, it may be that only foolishness or forgetfulness can excuse being surprised by the pace and power of a rock and roll machine coming out of the holy state of Michigan. Yet such is the power of the perpetual energy expressed throughout “Holy Water Pool,” the new full-length album by Heaters on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

If there’s an offer of salvation within “Holy Water Pool,” its one that comes with a catch: you have to risk drowning. Drowning in this case brought on by the...

To anyone who has heard the music of Kikagaku Moyo, it should come as no surprise that the band's origins lie in hours upon hours of late-night jamming, illuminated by nothing more than the geometric patterns playing behind the band's eyelids, resulting in a natural, free-floating sound, as of-the-earth as it is intergalactic. It may be surprising that the band sharpened their improvisational skills by busking on the streets of their native Tokyo. It may be surprising that the band's overall sound may....

"Somewhere among the sonic synchronicity that binds together the forty-two minutes of Midday Veil’s animated and eloquent new album “This Wilderness,” attentive listeners will be struck by the realization that the human organism embodied by the listener is an integral part of an interconnected ecosystem.

It’s a realization about self, size and scope, and like the album itself, it’s massive. Midday Veil have long found themselves comfortable creating colossal concerns, as recorded on the band’s...

"“The absolute works together with the relative, like two arrows meeting in mid-air.” So wrote Chinese Zen ancestor Shitou Xiqian, in an eighth century poem known as “The Sandokai” – or “The Identity of Relative and Absolute.” There’s more than a faint...

Great, lo-fi, Kraut-shogaze spacerock from Tucson, where they undoubtably smoke huge doobies and bake their brains for a second time in the sun....

"There’s more than a hint of mystery surrounding The Myrrors, the impossible-to-define sonic....

This is modern, cosmic space rock of the highest order. It doesn't sound 45 years old, but I found it very reminiscent of all the things I like about Amon Düül II. Hugely recommended!

There’s a confounding nature to the comfort constructed by The Myrrors throughout the flawless forty minutes of “Entranced Earth,” the third full-length album from the transcendentally-tuned, Tuscon-tied desert die-hards (and their second for Beyond Beyond Is Beyond Records).
Those looking for terra firma – for..

"If you turn your eyes to gaze even momentarily at the current state of our shared human environment, you’ll be forgiven for thinking it may be an unusual time to spend much time in consideration of “victory.” The forces that seek to stall progress and the forces that seek to pollute progress are intertwined, the path to progress choked, gasping for the breath of new ideas. It’s against this backdrop that we reconnect with the The Myrrors, and their beautiful, bewildering new album, “Hasta La Victoria...

"Straight back to the 60’s, Climbing Light is an acid flashback altogether."-Impose

"It’s heady stuff, but in PRD’s hands it’s catchy, too—the album’s titular track sounds like The Zombies if they’d recorded a song based on The Tibetan Book...

"“Invention, it must be humbly admitted,” as Mary Shelley humbly admitted in her introduction to her 1818 novel “Frankenstein,” “does not consist in creating out of void, but out of chaos.”
Not out of void, but out of Tokyo, Sundays & Cybele have created “Chaos & Systems,” the monstrously overwhelming new album that could well serve as the band’s mission statement.
