This is for all the stoner and heavy-psych lovers out there. Do you know about Acid Cosmonaut Records yet ? If not, here's what is to be known, it is an italien label created by Luca and Stefano, both very fond of everything psych and stoner, and luckily, they have both !
Started in 2011, their project is designed to promote the unsigned bands that they like and make their music available to all the psychedelic audience, to make their "small" contribution to the world of webzines, bands and labels that decided to avoid the mainstream media and commercial music.
Of course every release they have in their catalog is free-priced, else I wouldn't be writing this. I already shared two of them : Manthra Dei and Dust Storm Warning, very good albums in their own particular styles. And I will share more, because I'm receiving all their updates by email, full of heavy psych goodness, because I too want to promote underground bands, even if this is only a virtual platform.
Here are some links that you will find interesting :
Good listening !

8bit ! Glory be to the pixellated heavens ! Those guys from Chiptune = WIN just won't stop, and I won't prevent them to do so. So here it is, 51 tracks of pure bouncy square beats coming from afar and of old.
Tons of styles are represented, fast, slow, mid, you name it. I only have ONE thing to say, and that is about the choice of the first track of the compilation, my god it contains LYRICS !!! And that is a terrible blasphemy in the pixel world (according to me, that is,as you're free to think, I hope). I think it gives a false first impression of the whole thing. Even I almost put it away because I thought "what the hell ? Is that their new thing ?". But it's only one track over 51 so I tried anyway, and was not disappointed ! It's only ultimate power 8bit music. You just have to press play to see if I'm telling the truth. By the way is anyone on for a Megaman speedrun ?
