There is a lot of covering Black Sabbath on Magnetic Eye Records wich can only be good news, Black Sabbath rules and now there are going to be a lot of great artists covering the band yet again. I got myself a little list with covers of Black Sabbath because of obvious reasons that you can check here.
Now touy can listen how the great noiserockband Whores cover the track ‘Cornucopia’. The Cover album will be released October 30 and has some other really nice bands on it. I’ll keep you updated.
Osees, formerly known as Thee Oh Sees, The Oh Sees, OCS, Oh Sees and others) is led by John Dwyer who does not only release an incredibel amount of music with his band Osees but has side projects like the recently released Bent Arcana and his solo project Damaged Bug. ‘Protean Thread’ is album number 23 for the band! The new album, released under their very onw Castle Face Records, starts if fast paced with ‘Scramble Suit III’, Gets a little more funky with ‘Dreary Nonsense’ and from then on the tracks seem to switch between a bit more funky and hypnotizing and enegrgizing garapounk. ‘Red Study’ is again in your face loud garagepunk together with ‘Mizmuth’.
With ‘Scramble Suit III’ and ‘Gong of Catastrophe’ my favourite tracks this new album ‘Dreary Nonsense’ sure is good, I don’t think this band will ever release something bad, they keep slowly shifting in their own genre, sometimes more punk, somethimes more kraut, … and this is what makes em great. Still I think I have to listen some more but it leaves me a bit underwhelmed. Maybe I was hoping for some really outstanding track like I felt with ‘The Axis’ or ‘The Lens’ or a more riff fueled one. But it does not really matter, It is a great listen.
$hit & $hine’s on the ever incredible Rocket Recordings have just dropped ‘Devil’s Backbone’ a mind-altering cacophonous chasm taken off of the forthcoming album ‘Malibu Liquor Store’ set for release October 9.
‘Devil’s Backbone’ is like drinking a cocktail of Les Rallizes Dénudés & Place to Bury Strangers whilst being strapped into a rocket and fired into the furthest regions of space itself at lightspeed. Murky acid-like electronica delving into noise and space-rock, ‘Devil’s Backbone’ sounds it’s constructed by a beastly colossus from another dimension.
Absolutely glorious and exhilarating stuff from $hit & $hine, be sure to pre-order the album here as it’s going to be a good one for sure.
Anyway, I’m off for a run as I feel I need to do something with this nervous energy after listening to this maniacal banger…
The Portuguese duo consisting of drummer João Pais Filipe and Sax player Julius Gabriel released their self titled Rocket Recordings in 2019 and now they are back with new music.
We get an excerpt from the track ‘Unconscious Death Wishes’ wich is taken from the upcomiong album with the same title. The albulm will be released on Rocket Recordings. The track is less jazzy and more tribal space rock, it is really trippy and I am pleasantly surprised, this is even more my thing. Tune in now.
This is a dose of fast paced experimental screamo by Philadelphia terror Soul Glo. Their first track is called ‘(Quietly) Do the Right Thing’ is only two minutes long but feels like a sledgehammer in your faced. Tune in for some pure destruction.
Not long ago the band released their new track ‘Honey’ and ‘Some of Us’ and here are the Australian psych monsters again with a third new track in a short period of time! This new track is called ‘Straws In the Wind’ and is a calm and slightly psychedelic track with vocals from Ambrose Kenny-Smith.
When punk goes sludgy, gritty and noisy then you can count me in. I just discovered these Glasgow Sludge rockers Cartilage and they absolute deliver this extremly dirty music on their new EP ‘Bikkies’. Four tracks is absolutely not enough but I am happy anyhow cause this is really awesome.
This is the new band with members from death metal deliriants Crypate, Imperial Cult, Dead Neanderthals and more. As a big fan of the gloom and doom by Dead Neanderthals I always check out their side projects and this one is quite something. First of all I was blown away by the cover art, truly amazing work. I had heard the expert and was instantly a fan, now the whole shabam is out, and it is truly marvelous/disgusting. Forty minutes of evil depressing music, eerie atmospheres, here and there some piggish deep grunts, well you know, everything to make a great evil records
This here is some excellent experimental music. Ranging from soundscapes to brutal postmetal with noise influences. This has been released August 15, 2020 on the great Hominid Sounds. It is a bit a shame I am too lazy too right more because this is really good stuff.
Mint Field have been dropping a number of ethereal, cacophonous stunning gems in the run up to their second album ‘Sentimiento Mundial’ out 25 September via Felpe records and the Mexico City based duo have just released another great new single with ‘Aterrizar’.
A chunk of frothy shoegaze stew with faint touches of psychedelia, ‘Aterrizar’ – actually recorded in London, is a dreamy ballad that mollifies the current anxiety-fuelled environment that we’re currently living in with its sonic escapism.
Be sure to check out the single below ahead of the album which looks to be an album of the year contender.
Honestly I still don’t understand why Tropical Fuck Storm is not more popular and more known by now. This band has made the most gorgeous records, the most perfect mix of psychedelic rock and heaviness, and their mellow songs are just gorgeous. Now they return yet againw ith a new 7″ that is out on Joyfull Noise Recordings and Flightless Records. The track ‘Legal Ghost’ is up for a listen and is yet again a true beauty. On the one side is the ‘Legal Ghost’ track and on the other side the Talking Heads cover ‘Heaven’. Order it now!
‘Shame’ is an impressive album, it shows the Uniform at their strongest. Their blend of noiserock and industrial metal is refined and shifts between an epic feeling and dirty industrial filled with bleak heaviness. The tracks are strong and perfectly transfer the feeling of dread that is so strong in their music. A truly amazing album that has catchy tracks as well as destructive punk and choas. Tune in to hear ‘Shame’ the new album by Uniform that is out now.
Believe it ot not but I do not only listen to noiserock. And to prove it I am going to share four of my favourite newish electronic releases. and I am not going to review them or write something, I am just going to dump them here because I am too lazy and because it is Sunday. Do you want fb links or links to buy the albums and stuff, go search them yourselves you lazy bums.
This is the perfect time to tell you yet again how amazing the new album by Reptoid is, I gave it a 10/10 score and now the man himself released a new video for the track ‘You Have Already been Compromised’. And it is excellent too so how he does make all this racket on his own and with such explosive energy. read my review here. And check out the new animated vieo by Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, and the video from The Well and Mozo Mozo.
I have heard this band before and no idea why I have not shared them yet on Fuzzy Sun. I am listening at this very instant to their new album called ‘Special Telemetry Research and Tracking’ wich has this amazing hypnotic Kraut and psychedelic atmosphere. Really good stuff that has this live feeling probably due to it being recorded on a Tascam DR40.
This Australian band makes some really gritty riff fueled punk. Spoonhead released their album ‘Pretty Pig’ on August 8 and is a really cool mix of hardcore punk and frikkin good thrashy metal riffs. Tune in and check them out.
On the new EP by Kansas City noiserockers Poster Boy you can hear the magical intersection between noiserock and intense punk. Their self titled sounds bleak and intense. Five short bursts of energy that need to be heard. Great stuff.
I must say I was really forward to the release of ‘Atonement’, the new album by Exhalants. The trio have released debut in 2018 and made a split with Pinko and now this, and you can hear they have grown. It is not only very good produced but the tracks are strong, full of gorgeous riffs and still that awesome punk vibe. Their is something epic troughout their whole album. Exhalants does not dissapoint, again. Be ready to be overwhelmed by intensity, riffs and heaviness that shatters the bones.
Karkara is a French band, and it gets me thinking a bit of Slift, who are French too I believe. Karkara has a really strong, fuzzy and heavy psychedelic sound with Middle Eastern vibes. Their first track is called ‘Failing Gods’ and is taken from their upcoming alvum ‘Nowhere Land’. Check them out and pre-order the album.
