Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin release new album “Misty Woman”

I have been following the Californian band Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin for a while now. The have been making excellent desert garage and psychedelia since their existence. They released a 7″ singel in 2017 with the excellent cover of Neil Diamond on it. A debut album “Cabin Fever” in 2018 and their latest “Mud Room #13” last year. It is quite clear Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin will keep on producing awesome psych because they are already back with a new album called “Misty Woman”. On this album you can hear fuzzy psychedelia, catchy melodies,  raging solos, some Black Sabbath influences here and there. Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin are masters at creating a trippy atmosphere with their heavy psych. “Misty Woman” is again a great piece of music with “Kennel and the Dog” as my favourite track. Tune in now.

Hominid’s 2019

If you don’t know the label Hominid Records you are missing out. The labels releases some pretty damn cool music now and then. Experimental stuff, noiserock and just immens riffing coolness. Black Shape even ended on number 5 of my best of list of 2019.

Listen now and maybe buy it, then your money goes to the local homeless charity Single Homeless Project www.justgiving.com/fundraising/not-so-black-friday

Bit of a bummer that there is a dog on the picture. I’m more of a cat person.

Best of 2019 by Fuzzy Sun

Fuzzy Sun mostly covers noiserock, psychedelic rock and experimental stuff. A new addition to the blog is experimental techno/industrial/noise but this is still in its infancy. I have the feeling there was a bit more psychedelic rock in 2018 then this year but there were still some exquisite releases. It is very clear for me noise rock dominated 2019.

This is my  end of the year list, my best of list of 2019. I tried to orden my favourite released a bit but this is no easy task, so don’t take it too seriously. Do take the bands on this list seriously and take your time to absorb their music. their are some absolute gems in this list. Order some vinyl too. bands like money last i heard.

Take your time and enjoy.

1.Girl Band – The Talkies

My number one of 2019 is Girl Band and I can say this with great conviction. The band is refreshing, implements different genres succesfully in one track. They do not make their sound more easy to become popular, on the contrary, they keep experimenting, this time very succesfully with electronic and techno vibes mixed through their music.

https://www.facebook.com/girlband/

2. Shit and Shine – Doing Drugs, Selling Drugs

This is in your face noiserock with the most dense riffs ever created. Shit and Shine needs to be a genre on their own, somthing like Swamp Sludge or  Zombie Noise. This is brilliant. Shit and Shine did it again.

https://www.facebook.com/sshitandsshine/

3. Lightning Bolt – Sonic Citadel

Lightning Bolt is epic, their new album is epic, it should be on everyone’s list. “Sonic Citadel” is everything you want and everything you did not know you needed.

https://www.facebook.com/lightningboltband/

4. Cherubs -Immaculada High

The cult noiserockers made with “Immaculada High’ an album so gorgeous it deserves to be high on everyones end of the year list.

https://www.facebook.com/CherubsTX/

5. Black Shape – LONDON

I am completely blown away by this “new” band . I can tell you I probably listened to their 45 minute track ‘LONDON’ the most this year. The track starts with about ten minutes of crushing riff, the riff is great but don’t think that is all the band can do. Please take 45 minutes of your time, I promise you, you will not be dissapointed. Out on Hominid Sounds

https://www.facebook.com/blackshape666/

6. Thank – Think Less

The Leeds noiserockers end up at number six with their EP ‘Please’. This new EP is the most original version of punk, noise, and electronics I have heard in a long while. Thank is on acid.

https://www.facebook.com/thankleeds/

7. Kim Gordon – No Home Record

Kim Gordon is making music for millenia and it is just now she released her first solo album. This is a solo album by an artist who is experiences, original, daring and she perfectly knows what she is doing and what she wants. “No Home Record” is exceptional and original.

https://www.facebook.com/KimGordonOfficial/

8. USA/MEXICO – MATAMOROS

Contender for loudest album of the year. With members of Shit and Shine. Destructive, aggressive, hits you in the face and when you are on the ground it keeps on hitting until your face is pulp, then burns the pulp.

https://www.facebook.com/USAMexico-898437733523323/

9. Rainbow grave – No You

Oh lord this is dirty, this is such a dirty mix of sludge and punk that it needs to end on place 8. With founder member of Napalm Death and Scorn and founder member of Doom and Sore Throat. Out on God Unknown Records.

https://www.facebook.com/rainbowgrave/

10. Naujawanan Baidar – Volume 2

I am always up for some new sounds and Mr. Baidar delivers these tunes. A mix of Afghan folk and noise creates one hell of a gorgeous record.

https://www.facebook.com/naujawananbaidar/

11. Tropical Fuck Storm – Braindrops

The Australian rockers made a gorgeous album, again. In my opinion this one is even a lot better then the previous one. A lot of different styles, a lot of tracks that are instant addiction for me.

https://www.facebook.com/tropicalfstorm/

12. Sly and the Family Drone – Gentle Persuaders

Gorgeous in their experimental noise, free jazz and drone. And “Gentle Persuaders” is by far their best release.

https://www.facebook.com/slythefamilydrone

13. Youff -If wishes were horses, homicidal beggars could ride

These nutcases from Belgium released two albums this year. ’20/20 Hindsight’ was so loud even I had difficulty digesting it. Their second part ‘If wishes were horses, homicidal beggars could ride’ is the more experimental of the two and really stuck in my head.

https://www.facebook.com/Youffofficial/

14. Shimmer – And I Revel

I don’t know how to tell you what kind of music this is. Is it demented punk? Is it smoked indienoise? forlorn post punk? I don’t know, all i know is that Shimmer rules and needs to be heard.

https://www.facebook.com/decoherencerecords/

15. Cunts – Cunts

Good lord, this supergroup (Dead Cross, Qui, Retox, Virginia Reed, Hep.Titus and Planet B) makes the heaviest punk ever. Slayer looks like cute little kitties next to Cunts.

https://www.facebook.com/ipecac/

16. Buildings – Negative Sounds

Gorgeous riffs, perfectly produced, heavy vocals! is this the perfect marriage between noiserock and metal.

https://www.facebook.com/buildingsband/

17 .Qujaku – In Neutral

My favorite band from Japan wich I know for sure they will conquer the world with their original mix of doom, psych and noise. They released an EP “In neutral” this year. Gloria is the strongest track of the two.

https://www.facebook.com/Qujaku/

18. Luggage – Shift

Masters in songbuilding, gorgeous noiserock atmospheres, slow brooding tracks. Their third full album ‘Shift’ really suprised me.

https://www.facebook.com/TheeOhSees/

25. BORIS – Love & Evol

Japanse heavyweights Boris return with an excellent album. As alway this band is very difficult to categorize and that is also what makes them so good. Take your time to listen to “Love & Evol”.

https://www.facebook.com/borisheavyrocks

26. Junzo Suzuki & Snakes Don’t Belong In Alaska -The Ascended Master Teachings of Junzo Suzuki & Snakes Don’t Belong In Alaska

This, this is a piece of absolutely stunning droning space and psychedelic rock. These two together make godly sounds.

Kungens Män release CHEF on Riot Season Records.

The Stockholm band keeps amazing with their music. Time and time again they release cosmic music influenced by psych, noise and drone.

This time Kungens Män release their new album “CHEF” for the first time on Riot Season Records. Their previous album “Fuzz på svenska” ended up in my best of 2018 list. “Fuzz på svenska” had more Jazz influences while “CHEF” ends up on the rock/drone spectrum.

Kungens Män is most effective in bringing atmosphere, in creating a cosmic feeling to their music.

This gorgeous album will be on my 2019 list again. Enjoy, and for more psych go to Fuzzy Sun’s psych list.
