Sun Blood Stories Twilight Midnight Morning
Very strong semi-experimental pysch rock debut. They would go on to refine and build confidence in their sound with every release but this has a nice rawness to it. Misery Is Nebulous still is probably their best song. Palace Mountain Mirage, Found Reasons Found Out and Nightremor are also highllights.

Sun Blood Stories Haunt Yourself
Wow, these guys are really something special. So much more than stoner/desert/psych bands
that Spotify/Last.fm etc. list as their similar artists. It's really hard to categorise
their sound exactly. Certainly blends in some psych/desert/stoner influences, but they
really pick and choose from them lightly and forms their own sound. Every song seems to
shift genres completely organically from the last one. It's kind of progressive psychedelic
rock that dabbles in stoner & shoegaze.

Like many I think, I found them through the amazing Misery Is Nebulous with the Spotify
algorithm, hav

Vulgar Unicorn Jet Set Radio
Probably about a 4.2 but am 4.5'ing this because it's absolutely criminally unknown. It's a
really unique little gem of an album, hard to categorise but kind of early 2000s
progressive/indie rock meshing together a bit of XTC, Radiohead, Massive Attack but
completely with its own sound.

This was the band
Bruce Soord was in before he formed The Pineapple Thief, but
he wasn't actually the primary songwriter. Props for this goes to Neil Randall who is
clearly a powerful voice in his own
