Ambient and Drone on the new Animal Hospital

Animal Hospital aka Kevin Micka from Boston is and experimental musician and he returns with his new album since the release of his 2009 album ‘Memory’. His new album ‘Fatigue’ is a culmination of the past 10 years of Micka creating live music for large ensembles. The first track starts with experimental tunes that bring you fast in a hypnotic state only the push you deeper with the guitar driven drone on the track ‘No Pressure’. It is quite difficult to make guitar drone that is good, you have to succeed in bringing the track to life and this is something Kevin Micka does good. His music is filled with emotion and tracelike vibes.

A benefit compilation in the time of COVID-19 by Eiderdown Records

CosmoPraesidium is a compilation by the Eiderdown Records Label, A benefit for the COVID-19 Crisis. All proceeds from this compilation will go to food banks in Washington state, California, and New York. The artists on the Eiderdown label have been shared a lot on Fuzzy Sun, the music on the label brings calmth and rest on this website. Most of the music here is heavy, experimental and extremely noisy but the bands on Eiderdown have always tranquilized that nervous energy. The label is filled with artists that produce dreamy acid folk, Ambient trippy landscapes, gorgeous acoustic guitar work. Artists like Prana Crafter and Elkhorn have found a place in my heart. In these times it is so nice to tune in for a moment and enjoy this soothing, dreamy and trippy tunes. Twentyseven tracks long! Please buy this album and let sounds calm you.

GNOD R&D VOL. 4

The alternative version, the research and development wing of GNOD consists of co-founders Paddy Shine and Chris Haslam. Again a sonic experiment with 2 tracks that are 20 minutes each with sounds that range from weird to eerie to psychedelic. Its not only weirdness though, you can find some heavy beats and agressive industrial sounds in there. So, yeah, check it out, It is Gnod

I asked my girlfriend (who hates noiserock and psych) to review this band, this is what she says: ‘What the hell is this? these are just factory noises, turn that off and do something with your life’.

Droneflower by Marissa Nadler & Stephen Brodsky

Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky (Old Man Gloom, Cave In, Mutoid Man,…) have teamed up to make a dark and brooding record named ‘Droneflower’.

The album has an eerie, experimental feel to it. Marissa’s voice blends perfect in the folk/noise/fuzz that drones throughout the album.

Some tracks are soft and passionate but they can turn dark fast. ‘Droneflower’ has depth and is a piece of music that needs carefull listening.

Released April 26 on Sacred Bones.

 

Favorite track: Estranged

Psychedelic drone of epic proportions by Slomo

Do you know that feeling?
Do you know that feeling when the right sound just hits you?  You get goosebumps all over your body and the incredible wall of sound sends shivers down your spine. Well if you do, then be prepared.. Slomo fires you into space and beyond with their latest album Transits. (The name “Transits”, by the way, can refer to the method of finding exoplanets by looking at the light of stars, which makes it possible for you to interpret our metaphor quite literally). The only way to define this psychedelic journey is to call it the Slomo Sound I guess. I believe Transits is carefully crafted. Sometimes very calm and almost silent. Sometimes full of deep “droning” that makes your head spin. I have to say however, that this music is made for quality headphones or really good loudspeakers. Just put it as loud as you can take, sit back and relax.
Facts for the music geeks:  Slomo is  a collaboration between Holy McGrail & Howard Marsden.
The artwork of the album is done by Xochi Solis. a Texan based artist                                                               sharing her studio time between Texas and Mexico.
