Headroom band ~ "New Haven, CT's Headroom offer an escape to the thoughts of the day, a searing white-hot energy that manifests in meditative guitar distortion. Formed by Kryssi Battalene (lead guitarist of the similar psych-minded Mountain Movers), the sprawl of Headroom takes a deeper dive into psychedelic pastures, ruminating on noise as melodic evolution with a free-form approach." http://post-trash.com/news/2017/10/11/headroom-flower-of-light-post-trash-exclusive-premiere BONG WISH ~ "Mariam Saleh began performing under the heady moniker of BONG WISH in the Massachusetts of yesteryear. Drawing from British folk and fantasy, Bong Wish skews to the far out lyrically, encouraging universal love and inner peace. The debut EP presents a patchouli-scented fantasia of pure, unsolicited rage. Mostly home-recorded, the eponymous EP sees Mariam and her mystical cohorts explore different moods, styles and vibes across four tracks, ranging from lush string arrangements and exotic flutes to shimmering guitars and earthy percussion. Come along…" https://bongwishbbib.bandcamp.com/ Germ House Germ House is the solo recording project of Justin Hubbard, formerly of Boston band Turpentine Brothers. Live the band is augmented by Hubbard's wife & musical partner Tara McManus-Hubbard (Mr. Airplane Man / Turpentine Brothers) & Joe Ayoub (Marked Men / Shangalang). https://germhouse.bandcamp.com
Extremely kind write up by Mariana Timony over at Bandcamp ~ 💜 "The debut EP from Mariam Saleh, aka Bong Wish, is a puffy cloud of soft psych with fantastical folk-rock touches—head music for heads, if you catch my drift. Saleh approaches her music with kaleidoscope eyes, flitting from flowery freak pop on opener 'My Luv' to a stately and surreal psychedelic march on 'Saturn Spells,' during which she drops a pitch-perfect Grace Slick vibrato. There’s a certain solemnity to proceedings that might easily devolve into 60s kitsch in less-capable hands, but Saleh knows her shit, and presides over her arrangements like a hallucinatory high priestess, keeping one foot firmly on planet Earth even when she’s letting a freewheeling flute do its thing over a snappy snare and jumping bass line on extended jammer 'Conversation with Business People'—the longest song on Bong Wish, and also the best." 👁✨

Dougie Poole, Bong Wish & Noisebody hit the road this fall.. Join us on our adventures and tell your friends!! Dougie Poole with full band ~ Dougie Poole is a non-traditional country singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn, New York. His debut album Wideass Highway (https://dougiepoole.bandcamp.com/album/wideass-highway), released in Feb 2017 on JMC Aggregate explores heartbreak and loneliness in the digital age. Replacing pedal-steel guitar and fiddles with synths and samples, Poole recontextualizes traditional country sounds, storytelling and song structures, creating tunes that are at once new and familiar. Bong Wish Mariam Saleh began performing under the heady moniker of BONG WISH in the Massachusetts of yesteryear. Drawing from British folk and fantasy, Bong Wish skews to the far out lyrically, encouraging universal love and inner peace. The debut EP out October 2017 on Beyond Beyond is Beyond (https://bongwishbbib.bandcamp.com) presents a patchouli-scented fantasia of pure, unsolicited rage. Mostly home-recorded, the eponymous EP sees Mariam and her mystical cohorts explore different moods, styles and vibes across four tracks, ranging from lush string arrangements and exotic flutes to shimmering guitars and earthy percussion.
