Brussels noisepunk Bodies

I don’t know what is wrong with me, how is it possible that I never heard of a Belgian band this awesome? where have I been? What have I done? It does not matter, I found them now. These dudes make some really loud punk and noiserock infused loudness. Their latest release was on June 19  for Bandcamp day (donating their share of sales to NAACP Legal Defense Fund to support racial justice, equality and change.(www.naacpldf.org)

That release has a cover of Fucked Up and an original track. They have 2 more releases each two tracks long and very very awesome. Bodies is loud intens and all you need. I added them on The Big Belgian Noiserock List for obvious reasons.

Check them out.

Underpants punk by Belgian band The K.

This is just a really good dose of punk and riffs. The K. released their new album “Amputate Corporate Art” and impresses mostly with the heavy riffs while it stays easy to listen to. This album is very good produced. The K. finds the perfect balance between too heavy (if there is such a thing) and too poppy. Every track has a really catchy chorus and in your face guitars. This is a pretty damn impressive album that will scratch that itch from the punk and noise fan. Are they noiserock? not really I guess. Did I add them to The Big Belgian Noiserock List? Yes! why? Because they are pretty fucking great aren’t they?

Favourite track: Best Day

Hypochristmutreefuzz’s ‘Hypnos’: Old fashioned schizophrenic nightmare

Belgian noiserockers Hypochristmutreefuzz (try saying that three times in a row) rock the boat with their second full length album, called Hypnos. The tracks are nightmarish, the influence of American experimental hip hop band Death Grips is everywhere.

‘Hypnos’ is a concept album. All of the tracks are an attack on the senses, all of them short and concise. A couple of scary interludes knit the whole thing together. The mood is nightmarish and chaotic, like an old school horror movie. The influence of Death Grips is everywhere, but ‘Hypnos’ also has a definite nineties noiserock and industrial feel – to the point of being a bit nostalgic.

After an old fashioned intro, the first track is Hypochristmutreefuzz more or less like we know it: ‘Ding Dong’ sports an irregular riff with out-of-control screams and yells on top. Next up is the album’s single, ‘Ode to the night’. It’s a great track, but it could’ve been Death Grips just as well.

The rest of the album goes along similar lines. Interludes and audio fragments that feel somewhat dated, but set the mood, and tracks that yo-yo between nineties industrial and an ode to Death Grips. ‘Ghostess’ somewhat stands out, with a clear hook and melody.

‘Hypnos’ is at its best when you can yell along (terrified! terrified!) and when the typical Hypochristmutreefuzz-riffs join in. The songs with a Death Grips-feel are great and expertly executed, but the original is hard to beat.

Fake Indians release “The Pest”

Fake Indians are a band from Antwerp, Belgium. I have not seen them live yet and had not listened to their music, I don’t why I did not but it does not matter because I did now. I do not know much but what I do know is that Fake Indians are pretty much frikkin awesome. I know that their latest album “The Pest” was released February 29 because I read it on their bandcamp page. I do like this very much because of the level of rocknroll, heavy fuzz and punk atmosphere. “The Pest” is one of those albums that is impossible to pin down, to much energy, to much of a fuck you. I am very glad I finally listen to Fake Indians and I know you will be glad too. I hope to see them live soon, I even might drive to Antwerp.

I very much like the track “Terror Squad” but I don’t like the track “Cheyenne”.

Skiska Skooper release “Surreality Check”

When you press play on the very first track from the new album “Surreality Check” by the Belgian trio Skiska Skooper you immediatly get a gorgeous riff with some distorted underwater like vocals, this is no bullshit heaviness to begin a really good album with. Melodic guitar riffs switch with noiserock brutality and here and there some psychedelic vibes. Most tracks on this album are catchy, heavy and get stuck in your head really fast.

Skiska Skooper took their game a step further and created with “Surreality Check” their best work so far. Heavy tracks like “Cocktail” ,psych/sludge tracks like “Northern Escort’, acoustic stuff like “Heroin Shifter” and grunge in “Silver Linings” create a album that is versatile and fun to listen to.

Favourite track: Clusterfuck

Crowd of Chairs share second track

“Tourist” is the second track by Belgian noiserockers Crowd of Chairs. This track is taken from their upcoming album that will be released through Sentimental Records. This will be their second studio album called “Mod Kid With Dog” and will be released February 21 on Sentimental.

The track “Tourist” makes me really excited for the full album. This song is way more experimental then the first track, it is difficult at first but after you give it a couple of listens it creeps under you skin. It is eerie and dangerous, a track filled with nervous energy.

The Belgian rockers Crowd of Chairs have been a couple of times on Fuzzy Sun. The trio makes intense noiserock with post punk influences. They have already three releases out and their latest “Fuck Fuck Fuck” ended on my best of 2017 list. Crowd of Chairs is on my Big Belgian Noiserock list too.

Hypochristmutreefuzz returns with new track “Ode to Night”

It seems we have ourselfs the best Belgian week ever. With new music from The K., Skiska Skooper and Crowd of Chairs and now new music by Ghentian weirdos Hypochristmutreefuzz. Their previous album (wich is pretty awesome) was called “Hypopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia” and dates back from January 2017.

Hypochristmutreefuzz is a band that is full of originality, weirdness and heaviness and they show that strenght again on their new track “Ode To Night”. The track is a bit of a mashup of genres (like with most of their music) and gives you an unique listening experience. This track feel dominantly experimental and industrial but with a catchy side to it. “Ode To Night” is taken from their upcoming album “Hypnos”.

This band always delivers something special, something unique and with their new music they do it again. Impossible to categorize them wich makes them so much better.

Listen for yourself, here are the Ghentians Hypochristmutreefuzz.

Belgian noiserockers Crowd of Chairs are back with new music

The Belgian rockers Crowd of Chairs have been a couple of times on Fuzzy Sun. The trio makes intense noiserock with post punk influences. They have already three releases out and their latest “Fuck Fuck Fuck” ended on my best of 2017 list. Crowd of Chairs is on my Big Belgian Noiserock list too.

Now we get the first track from their upcoming album that will be released through Sentimental Records. This will be their second studio album called “Mod Kid With Dog” and will be released February 21 on Sentimental.

The first track is called “Hollow Thoughts of Wrong” and on it Crowd of Chairs sounds more balanced the before. Their relentless noiserock combined with their typical destructive and bleak atmosphere  creates a gorgeous track but in this first track they sound more intense but less agressive. This is one of the albums I look mostly forward too in 2020.

Also known for their ferocius live shows, so be sure to check them out live too if possible. Tune in now for “Hollow Thoughts of Wrong”.

Belgian noiserocker Skiska Skooper return with new single

The heavy rockers Skiska Skooper released their debut album “Universal SPace Shifter” in 2018 and the heaviness hit me right in the face.  The fourth track of that debut album is 42 minutes of psychedelic noise and has even a video. This is stuff you definitely have to check out if you don’t know them.  But now it is time to hear new music by this great band. They have released a new single with a gorgeous video to accompany it. The track is called “Plastic Mastermind” and is taken from their upcoming album “Surreality Check” that will be release March 3rd. On this new track you can hear the eerie heavy noise that is known from Skiska Skooper, but they have evolved , they perfected their sound. Tune in now for “Plastic Mastermind”.

Elefant released “Bejahung” on 9000 Records

Beloved Ghentian (Belgium) weirdo band Elefant released their new album “Bejahung” today on 9000 records. Their previous album was called “Konard and Bonark” and was a bit of a mishmash of different styles but mostly rock with experimental synth stuff that I very much enjoyed.

But on “Bejahung” I have the feeling the band has grown a bit. It is already clear for me on the first track “Ultra Plus Ultra” that they made a track that is more easy to listen to, catchy and it still has very heavy riffs. Like every album I love it when I can hear some weirdness or experimental stuff in it so i’m glad when the second song “Rechtschreibe” starts whith some weird synthy  sounds, yet you can recognize the sound of “Bejahung” in it, the riffs turn back and the vocals and drumming make sure they stay on the same sonic line. “Eazy” starts like Moon Duo, Oh Sees and Beak got in a fight and although the song is softer (and weirder) it still has the same dreamy trippy vibe, the vocals on this track give it an extra kick too. Probably going to grow on me and become my favourite. “Water Always Flows” is one of the recently released single and got that typical elefant sound but a bit more tender (again weird though). “Stilleben” is experimental eerie doomlike synthrock track and is a very nice track if you are depressed and want to look outside the window complaining you don’t have any friends. “Welcome to Life Sonny” is riffless and a bit soulless for me.

“Bejahung” is difficult, it is a bit of every song on the album thrown together with a bit of oriental vibes in it because why not. “The Dooor” is a slowed down synthpunk track with great basslines wich makes me move my head (wich is extremely difficult). “3-3-3” is very experimental and strange and I will need to hear it a couple times more. “A conversation in a room” is an eerie outro track and the album ends with  “My Race Race Is Better Than Your Race” wich is pretty damn cool track, it sounds like it is made in 2084 and the robot overlords are ready to take over.

“Bejahung” is a great album but it is a difficult one. The first six tracks are easier to listen to then the last 5, these are quite challenging. This album is for music fanatics, people who like to take their time to listen to an album and listen to it more then once.

Tune in, set back and enjoy, it is Elefant, it is out today, buy it here.

Elefant to release “Bejahung” this friday. Tune in for the new track/video

Their previous album “Konark Und Bonark” was a nice piece of work with a track called “Lord Sleep” wich I still play a lot. A while ago they released a new track called “Water Always Flows Down” wich showed that the band has a more normal side too. The track is a lot chiller then most of their material.

Their new track and video “Ultra Plus Ultra” is again more catchy then what we are used to but has a heavy kick to it. Tune in for “Ultra Plus Ultra” from their album “Bejahung” wich will be released this friday 24 January on 9000 Records (consouling Sounds).

Elefant return with new single “Water Always Flows Down”

Back in November the Belgian band Elefant released their first full LP “Konark Und Bonark” wich ended up on my end of the year list. The sound of Elefent is very difficult to put in a box, it seems they just do whatever they want and the result is quite refreshing. On their latest album you can sense that the band jumps between heavy in your face rock to weird electronic stuff, then jumbles it all together in something of a sonic goo.

Their new track is called “Water Always Flows Down” and is a more modest version of Elefant, it seems they show their sensitive side for a change. the track is taken from their upcomign album “Bejahung”.

Allöchtöön released their self titled debut

Now and then I need heavy riffs, noiserock, fast and agressive music to keep me awake. I don’t know about you but when I’m in the car at night I just need some Slayer or Daughters or even Dying Fetus to keep me from dying of boredom. Or in the middle of the day at the most inconvenient moment I blast Girl Band mostly for myself but also to annoy others with their terrible music taste. It is sonic terror like these bands that keeps my blood flowing (and tire the people around me).

A band like Allöchtöön does that for me, it hightens my senses, making me like some kind of sonic animal chasing my tail like an idiot. So I am very happy to introduce to you the new EP by Belgian brutes Allöchtöön.  It sounds a bit like Entombed fucked Raging Speedhorn in the bum. Its fun. It is also out on cassette through Nosebleed Records

I asked my girlfriend (who hates noiserock and psych) to review this band, this is what she says: ‘This is just stupid, all this noise induces a migraine. Who the fuck listens to this, turn it off and leave me alone’.

There are about 5 good tracks on this EP so you should stop reading this nonsense and start listening to this very good debut.

now.
