Given that it’s the first of the month and September sees the Liverpool Psych Fest, today’s #onegoodthing seems appropriately timed.

Yup, those Swedish purveyors of some of the sharpest, brightest and boldest psych-inflected music – GOAT – are back with Words (Version).

As per, it’s sparse on lyrics, but full of vibrant sounds, shed loads of fuzz and some of the most potent percussion out there. In a nutshell: it’s awesome.


Coming from the same label as Girl Band, Ireland’s Jet Setter don’t offer quite the same visceral assault on the senses as their labelmates, but rather tread the more traditional path of indie-rock.

However, that’s no bad thing when the tunes are this good, with Not Yet propelled by a Strokes-esque riff, before diverting to a more Brit-rock sound akin to the meeting point of Bloc Party and Boy Kill Boy. Though it’s much better than that sounds…


Something of a departure, today’s #onegoodthing is the self-proclaimed ‘sasscore’ of F A L L S.

It’s a mesh of hardcore and more mainstream influences, adding a whole shitheap of grit onto the likes of Queens of the Stone Age at their most rip-roaring.

Not for the faint-hearted, don’t be surprised to be lulled into a false sense of security by the opening 30-odd seconds.

Thanks to Lucy B from the righteous Bad Grammar for alerting me to this.


The first volume of the Beech Coma collection was a firm favourite on these pages (and this page) earlier this year, and the first signs are that the second instalment is also going to get plenty of repeat plays.

Vol II features a raft of new, fairly unheralded bands and the first track available is this beaut from Hella Better Dancer.

Like A Child is a summery swirl of edgy guitars and late-night vibes and promises plenty from the band and the rest of the collection.
