The Editors of Mystic Tape Deck are happy to announce we will be featuring music reviews on our site now.

Some might view this as a desperate bid to increase traffic on our site, but they would only be half right.

We also hold a very high regard for experimental, avant-garde, fringe music as well as many forms of art rock and electro-organic music.

Because we also feel that these genres are tragically under represented in today’s world of cookie cutter indie rock website bibles, we decided to start putting some effort into reviewing music that WE personally like and wish more people could hear.

There are no hard rules, but we generally do not accept submissions, at least not at this time. We may decide to do it by request in the future, but for now we plan on just sticking to music we think is really great and should be reaching a wider audience. If we can help with that even just a tiny bit, then our job here is done.

ENJOY!

Centipede is the brain-child of Australian musician Steve Evans. I have been enjoying his brand of psychedelic rock on ye olde Cloude of Sounds for a couple years now, and without a doubt he is one of the more prolific creators around. The songs are varied and unique, and his catalog is very deep (as […]
