The solo project of multi-instrumentalist Charles Prest of the cosmic carnival and live juggeranturs that is Flamingods, Noon Garden has dropped another fun-laden banger with Decca Divine.
The tropical rollercoaster odyssey that is Decca Divine by Noon Garden is a motley of sounds mixed to create a frenetic floor-filled delving between psychedelia, funk and disco. Fans of Flamingods as well as the likes of The Mauskovic Dance Band, Yin Yin, Los Bitchos, L’Eclair and all that good stuff of new outfits drawing influences from all across the world will be right at home here.
On the single itself, Noon Garden explains:
“Sonically this is the most I’ve ever drawn on my African heritage and love for African music. I was obsessed with Charly Kingson’s track ‘Nimele Bolo’ for a time which has such an infectious, repetitive bass line and groove that I wanted to explore something similar myself. Musicians like Nigerian funk master William Onyeabor influenced all the bright synth work and I even named the song after a popular recording studio in Lagos called Decca Studios where a lot of my favourite African artists like the Lijadu Sisters, Obenezer Obey and King Sunny Ade recorded albums. Lyrically it’s a celebration of ambition and determination and a call to exorcise one’s self-doubt”
Noon Garden has also announced details of a solo album set for release later in the year as well as announcing a show set for May 18 (which looks to already be sold out).
Last album of the week was the new album from BIG|BRAVE, a truly magnificent album that deserves all your attention. Now there is a new album of the week on Fuzzy Sun and it is the new one from Throat. Throat is a Finnish noiserockband that has made some pretty cool records and splits and stuff and now the four headed band returns with a new one called ‘Smile Less’. i still listen quite a lot to their previous album ‘Bareback’ and was expecting more of their dark no nonsense noiserock but ‘Smile Less’ is different, on it you hear a a band that has evolved to a new level, like a pokemon but then way more evil. The atmosphere may be less agressive then their previous work but it sure is colder and darker. You can hear a lot more postpunk in everything their do but it is all still rooted in that oldschool noiserock sound. here and their an epic guitar solo wich fitts remarkably good between their slow churning riffs.
‘Smile Less’ is more melodic, more haunting, more postpunk (like the tracks ‘Conveyer Line’ and ‘Grounding’) then their previous work but some tracks on that album are still in your face noiserock tracks (like ‘Shots’ and ‘Deadpan’) but the band keeps it experimental (like ‘Home is Where Your Hurt is’) wich makes it a very varied and heavy album and it all fits very good together. This beast is out on Svart Records.
A really good album, I give it a lot of stars, I do.
The German trio Acid Rooster is going to release their new album ‘Irrlichter’ July 30 and in the meantime there are two tracks out already. The band makes really cool instrumental psychedelia and kraut. Tune in and check out the first two tracks and you can pre-order the vinyl on their bandcamp.
Somewhere in Iowa there is a newish label called NIM BRUT and most of their music has been shared on your favourite page Fuzzy Sun. NIM BRUT deals in the weird and the experimental, the heavy and the destructive (also some livestream shows). Noise like Territorial Gobbing and psychedelic and experimental guitar work like Carnivorous Plants lives on their bandcamp page. A while ago I got the honor to premiere a track from Health Plan’s upcoming album wich will be released this friday! Then a week ago I got the second track by Health Plan to share(you can find the track on their upcoming album that will be released on Buzzhowl and Nim Brut) , that track was taken from the upcoming NIM BRUT compilation called ‘DEPRIVED OF OCCUPATION AND PLEASURE WE FEAST’ wich features 10 different artists and is a great way to dive into the experimental world of NIM BRUT.
On the ten track compilation we can already listen to Hubbel, Health Plan an Rusty Sandoz. Now we get another one called Omnibeal wich is a refreshing taster from all the soft squishy music. Omnibael is no bullshit, in you face lofi industrial blackened punk (yes i just found that genre out). Check it out now.
Possum is Brandon Bak (guitar, vocals), Tobin Hopwood (guitar), Patrick Lefler (bass) and Bradley Thibodeau (drums). Their previous album ‘Space Grade Assembly’ was an album filled with fuzz and Black Sabbath like tunes. The baznd has already shared their first track called ‘Gala At The Universe City’ from their upcoming album ‘Lunar Gardens which will be released June 2.The first tracks shows a completely different Possum, a band that seems to have shifted to a more trippy level, a more cosmic level. Now the secodntrack is out and is called ‘Clarified Budder’ and is layered, proggy and filled with cosmic guitar work. I like this new Possum
A shit can be dry and perfect and a pleasure to purge but it is not always as easy as that, sometimes it can be gritty and painful or it can go completely the wrong way and get flabby and weird. Night Lunch is just like that, a true pleasure to listen to but at moments gritty and weird, it is these different states that makes it interesting. thanks for reading my review.
The Brighton trio The International Debt makes noiserock and punk filled with energy. Their first track is out and is called ‘Competitive Living’ and is taken from their upcoming EP ‘New Optimism’. Tune in now.
Somehow missed these two new tracks by UK nosierockers Toronto Blessings.’Life’ and ‘Make No Mistake’ are angy, riff fueled and ready to destroy both ears. released somewhere in the beginning of the year. Tune in.
The Austrialian trio Clamm is from Melbourne and makes very straight in your face heavy guitar music. Three tracks are free to listen to and you can buy the vinyl on their bancamp. The album is high paced punk and garage. I put Clamm in my ‘Australian List’ for obvious reasons. Tune in now
Since these Levitation Sessions my life has been a lot better, the live session that have been out and the ones that are upcoming are just brilliant. These are all the best psych bands at the moment. We had sessions by Acid Mothers Temple, Kikagaku Moyo, Black Angels, Osees, Alex Maas, Black Angels and more. And now it is time for another one of these magnificent bands. Tune in now for the live sessions by FUZZ. Buy lps, Merch and stuff here.
On the great shop and label Koas Kontrol from Finland comes the new Ep by Finish noiserockers Bunsen. Their new EP is called ‘Antiface’ and is a very eerie and bleak record full of industrial vibes. This is a very good EP but a very dark one too. watch out while you are listening that you soul is not sucked into the abyss.
The Swine made another EP. The Swine made previous EP’s. You could say The Swine makes postgrungenoise but that is not an official genre but who actually cares. its a bit depressing but I still like it because its noisy and grungy. I like the track ‘Sick’ most because it has such a jolly vibe.I like The Swine thank you for reading my review.
If you don’t know Hibushibire then you are missing out on really awesome music. This Japanese band makes furious heavy psych that makes your blood boil , relentless heavy trippy riffs and solos in your face. Now the band seems to have gone through some line up changes since their 2019 second album ‘Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out!so in the meantime they the great Riot Season is going to release a bootleg style LP of their live show at J.T. Soar in Nottingham (UK) on May 17th 2019. Check out the first track and while you are at it you can tune in to the Cosmic Side of Japan.
