Kookaburra share new track/video ‘Thermodynamics’

Belgian Garagerockers Kookaburra are finally back with new music. Their upcoming album ‘Dry Eyes/White Mice’  out 10/12/’20 on Resurrection Records (US), Gazer Tapes and digitally through Wagonmaniac Music and they already shared the garagetrash track ‘Dacelo Novaguineae’ and now they shared the second one called ‘Thermodynamics’. The track is a fun and fuzzed out garagetrack , catchy and full of wild guitarwork. Two tracks in and this is sounding like a very promising album. This new Kookaburra is sounding better, harder and wilder.

New Age Doom to release ‘Himalayan Dream Techno’

On the We are Busy Bodies label comes the new album by drone/experimental band New Age Doom. The band is Drummer Eric J. Breitenbach and multi-instrumentalist Greg Valou are joined by Gregory Macdonald AKA “ColaWars” (Limblifter, Sloan)on analog synthesizer and Tim Lefebvre (Donny McCaslin, David Bowie’s Blackstar) on analog synthesizers and upright bass.

This is going to be their second album but it is the first time I heard them and when I hit play on the track ‘Phononic Landform Resonance’ I knew this was really good stuff. The track is very powerful and most of its energy comes from the drums. Together with the experimental noises it should sound like chaos but it is far from that!

The first track on the album is called ‘Acoustolectric Invocation’ and has again these wild drums but this time the track is way more hyper and tense. Very curious to hear the rest on the album on December 11.

Alpha Hopper release ‘Alpha Hex Index’

New York rockers Alpha Hopper have released two LP’s in the past, one of them on guitarist John Toohill’s own Swimming Faith imprint wich you can read about more in here. Alpha Hopper has been on my best of 2019 list too.

Now they have released a new album called ‘Alpha Hex Index’ on Hex Records and with this new album they have scored a piece of gorgeous noisepunk. Their music is wild and energetic filled with great punk riffs and the vocals of Irene give everything an extra kick.

“Alpha Hex Index” is frenzy and both catchy, weird enough to be cool and catchy enough for the average punker. Tune in now and buy the record.

Favourite track: ‘Third Man’

Kawabata Makoto – A short guide

Since I started with Fuzzy Sun I slowly tumbled into this neverending hole that is Japanese psych and noise. I made list with a huge load of Japanese bands called ‘The Cosmic Side of Japan’ and I tried to make some sort of guide through the releases of Acid Mothers Temple and its offshoots (wich was really difficult). Kawabata Makoto (speedguru) plays a big role in this whole scene, he is a founding member of Acid Mothers Temple and played in a lot of bands. And since 1978 Kawabata has been releasing albums under different names. You can expect everything on the psychedelic spectrum. In this post I want to highlight a couple of albums, not all of them because it is just too much to grasp.

Kawabata Makoto: That Awaking : Good​-​bye Me

This is one of the latest studio releases, out since May 2020. Two tracks over half an hour and they are quite exceptionnal. In these Kawabato gives us epic guitarwork over a psychedelic ambient atmosphere.

Nishinihon 西日本: If You Smell What Art Rock is Cookin! アートロックの新鋭

Nishinihon is Tsuyama Atsushi (vocals, electric bass, acoustic guitar),
Ichiraku Yoshimitsu (drums, percussion) and Kawabata Makoto (electric guitar) and this my be my favourite band in this whole post. Nishinihon is wilder and very powerful. Recorded in 1999.

Kawabata Makoto: Mizu Naranu Ao Ni Sae 水ならぬ青にさへ

The original CDR (limited 100) released from Acid Mothers Temple on Jan 1998. This release is filled with guitarnoise but still has an out of this world calming vibe to it.

Kawabata Makoto & The Mothers of Invasion: Hot Rattlesnakes

Mothers of Invasion is Kawabata on guitars, Tsuyama Atsushi on bass and
Ichiraku Yoshimitsu on drums. This spacey stuff was recorded it in London during the Acid Mothers Temple UK tour 2001.

Kawabata Makoto: Your Voice From The Moon

This release is also quite interesting because it let us hear Kawabata on  Electric Comp Synthesizer model-101 and it makes me even more sure he is not from earth.

NANI∞GURU: VOVIVIZM episode 1​.​5 (Remastered)

The original cassette tape was released by Swap Meat Records for NANI∞GURU’s European tour 2019. NANI∞GURU guitarist Kawabata Makoto and drummer Satoshima Nani from Acid Mothers Temple. This release is uptempo filled with guitar solos and is more easy to listen to.

PIkacyu-Makoto 光宙★魔呼斗: Live & Rare

This is PIKA from Osaka primitive wild girls duo Afrirampo and Makoto Kawabata. This release has two live versions and two special tracks.

PIkacyu-Makoto 光宙★魔呼斗: OM Sweet Home : We Are Shining Stars From Darklside

I like this duo very much, they have made some really great released together and this one is a really good one. Originally released in 2011.

Zoffy: Not “Very Very Famous Songs” vol​.​1

Formed by Tsuyama Atsushi (Psyche Bugyo, Omoide Hatoba, ex.Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.) and Kawabata Makoto in 1998. Zoffy is well known as playing innovative comical covers of famous songs, but they also play improvised fake trad. & folk music too.

Kawabata Makoto: Yuga Hiku

Yuga Hiku was recorded in 1993 is highly hypnotic filled with weird sounds all made by Kawabata.

AFRIMAKOTO あふりマコト: AFRIMAKOTO

Afrimakoto is Oni and Pika from Afrirampo and Kawabato. This is the latest studio recording session on 14th September 2020. Everything is completely improvised and is a real fun listen!

Hoaries release ‘Rocker Shocker’ on Reptilian Records

On Reptilian Records is the new album by Hoaries. A band who makes a gorgeous mix of rocknroll and noiserock and I cannot help to think this is the soundtrack for te Pandemic. Their music is feral, brutal and rocknroll wich sound like a big fuck you to the world.

With tracks noisy and others catchy this heavy album is so varied it is a fun listen from beginning to end and I am quite sure I will listen to this a lot more.

Hoaries is a great band and they made a great album and everyone who says different is a turd.

Spectres released ‘It’s never Going To Happen And This Is Why’

Bristol noisemakers Spectres are back with full force. Their new album ‘It’s Never Going To Happen And This Is Why’ is released on October 30 and is a furious piece of music. This new album balances perfectly between relentless noise rock, intense postpunk and hypnotic experimental vibes.

I am pretty sure you will need this one in your collection. Tune in and fry your brain.

Favourite track: On Nepotism

Spraint release ‘Radio Caca’

On Premature Records comes the new EP by Spraint. The EP is called ‘Radio Caca’ and is really cool, it has a lot of different influences wich makes it a really interesting listen, here and there the album feels like a grunge album but then the noisy garageriffs blast throughout and it is heaviness all around. Cool stuff, yes, cool stuff.

Stonerdoom Rezn release ‘Chaotic Divine’

I shared the album ‘Calm Black Water’ by Chicago Stoner/doom Rezn in 2018 and then I kinda forgot about them, no idea why because that was a really great album.

Now they are back with a new album called ‘Chaotic Divine’ that is engineered by Dylan Piskula (DEN, Bruges) at JAMDEK in Chicago in December 2019, mixed by Matt Russell (Bruges, Moral Void).
