Best Of 2018 by Fuzzy Sun

This is not an easy list, 2018 has given us a ridiculous amount of great music. I tried to shift as much as possible and made a list of albums that really made a difference for me, albums with a unique sound and wich time and time again made me happy.
The list is in no particular order except maybe for the first four albums. these four have blown me of my socks with their exceptional songwriting, these four made it difficult to absorb all the other music because i keep returning to them.
Enjoy these bands and take your time to listen to them carefully. If you like these sounds you can find more psychedelic tinged music here and more heaviness here.

Oh Sees release Smote Reverser

I will not conceal my personal love for the music of Oh Sees (The Oh Sees, OCS,…). The garage/psychedelic rockers with frontman John Dwyer keep releasing albums at the speed of light. Only last year they released the heavy album ‘Orc’ and now here they are with a new album.
‘Smote Reverser’ has eleven tracks and has that sound that only Thee Oh Sees produce. Refreshing keyboards and organs shift between sharp psychedelic guitar solos with the well known voice of Mister Dwyer over it. Classic rock songs switch with psychedelic punk to progressive rock. Oh Sees will always remain themselves, doing what they love, making music, slightly varying with their sound but you will always recognize their sound.
Again a brilliant album by a brilliant band. Listen to ‘Smote Reverser’ then listen to all their other albums and then do that again.
I added their music to Fuzzy Sun’s Spotify list.

Cabin Fever by Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin

The new EP by San Diego’s psychedelic rockers is something i really looked forward too. Their previous 7″ was on of true beauty with an amazing cover of Solitary Man by Neil Daimond. I kept playing those two songs over and over and now they have released their new EP called “Cabin Fever”.
These 5 tracks are filled with perfect amounts of garage rock, psychedelic rock and some sweet vintage sounding tunes. With each track as good as the next one it is difficult to choose a favorite, so i will not. This needs to be on repeat and everyone needs to fill their ears with this cosmic desert sound.
‘Cabin Fever’ will be easily on my best album list of 2018. Listen now and find Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin on Fuzzy Sun’s spotify list.
