Lonely Planet review

When pop seems played out, this is the dawning of the age of Aquarius Records, featuring Armenian blues, Oakland warehouse-party bands and rare Japanese releases since 1970. Recent staff favorites include Sounds of North American Frogs, groovy '60s Brazilian tropicália from Os Mutantes, Mauritanian Muslim funk band compilations and SF's own Prizehog, enthusiastically described as 'dirgey doom pop slowcore!'
