Psychedelic Cottage is the latest recording from London, Ont.-based act Lonnie in the Garden. The combination of words made me think of something out of Alice in Wonderland. While it’s not necessarily that, it’s certainly comparable in terms of trippiness.

Lonne in the Garden has apparently gotten even weirder thanks to the “garden invasion” of fellow Out of Sound Records acts Whoop-Szo and Wild Domestic, both of which are psychedelic in their own right. The result of this fusion is a truly unique experience, combining the heavy guitars of 60s psychedelia with some rather stunning a cappella work as a contrast. - Grayowl Point

London ON, psychedelic folk rock outfit LONNIE IN THE GARDEN closed the evening with a bang back at our NXNE 2012 showcase at Rancho Relaxo, and they’ve been garnering reviews as of late hailing them as London’s best live act – recently sharing bills with THE JEZABELS and BRUCE PENINSULA.

That being said though, if you were ever a fan of 70s psych rock ala HEART, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, or FLEETWOOD MAC, then you’ll be right at home with LONNIE.

Last month the band – fronted by Lynne Craven and sharing members with fellow London acts WILD DOMESTIC and WHOOP-SZO – dropped their first official release via Out Of Sound Records, which you can stream in the embed below.

The band allegedly has a new video coming out sometime in the near future, so stay tuned for that – if their live show is any indication, the video format of the band is sure to be a crazy energetic (or extremely trippy) piece of work. - The Indie Machine


Still working on that hot first release.



The Garden has long been put to bed, but the flowers are starting to bloom. The cottage windows open to a new season and so too, said the songbirds, "sing". Lonnie in the Garden first began in November 2010 in London, Ontario, growing from inside the Craven Cottage, a community and music hub on Evergreen Avenue.

The project stems from songs written by Lynne Craven, who forms a strong, harmonizing duo with Natasha Roberts. Nathan Patrick, adding powerful and soulful guitar, has also been with the group from the start. Members of London's WHOOP-SZO and Wild Domestic have invaded the garden recently, creating a wall of psychedelic and experimental sound to accompany Lonnie's core of blues/gospel vocals. The band has opened for a variety of influential Canadian and international acts, including Olenka and the Autumn Lovers, Born Ruffians, Bruce Peninsula and The Jezebels.

Lonnie will be releasing their second EP on Out of Sound Records, “Psychedelic
Cottage,” in September 2012. The new songs were produced by The Water St. Projects at the Craven Cottage. The Garden is aching to be harvested in the new dew of the morning; Lonnie plays quietly, patiently and invites her friends to do the same. With the songbirds, “sing”.
