Best Of 2018 by Fuzzy Sun

This is not an easy list, 2018 has given us a ridiculous amount of great music. I tried to shift as much as possible and made a list of albums that really made a difference for me, albums with a unique sound and wich time and time again made me happy.
The list is in no particular order except maybe for the first four albums. these four have blown me of my socks with their exceptional songwriting, these four made it difficult to absorb all the other music because i keep returning to them.
Enjoy these bands and take your time to listen to them carefully. If you like these sounds you can find more psychedelic tinged music here and more heaviness here.

Daughters release “You Won’t Get What You Want”

I have to say that this album completely blew me away. When the first tracks from the new album were released a while ago i got way too excited. “Satan in the Wait” was the first to enter my brain and i already decided that the album “You Won’t Get What You Want” would be a masterwork.
I calmed myself down because it is always the same with me, I get way to excited and then in the end i’m disappointed. But then track”The Reason They Hate Me” came out and I went berserk again.
By the time “Long Roads No Turns” came out i was starting to act weird.  Small tics, uncontrollable movements that led to embarrassing public moments.
Now Daughters is out and people start to avoid me, look away when they see me limping on the streets with a maniacal smile on my face. But i don’t care, i close the curtains when i’m home, dim the lights, sit in the middle of the room and listen to Daughters on max volume. and I’m Happy.
Be aware when you start listening to Daughters: It may cause social disorders, nervous tics, earfungus, drooling and Ascension.

Qujaku release video for “Yui, Hate No Romance”

I have become quite a Qujaku nerd this year. I am a big fan and i will not hide it. The Japanese band released their full length this year and it is even more gorgeous then I hoped it would be. With a unique mix of doom, noise rock and psych the Japanese band are one of my favorite acts in a long time.
They released a new video for the track “Yui, Hate No Romance”.  Check out there new vid here.

Next to their original sound and complex music Qujaku has a very strong live act, so if you got the chance you got the see them live. While you’re here, check out  the track “Shoku No hakume”.
The video “Mei” is from their previous EP and one of my favorite tracks of the band. The tension on the track is beyond.

A while ago you could buy the LP on Norman records but it’s sold out at the moment. If there will be more you will need to by this.

Daughters share “Long Road, No Turns”

Rhode Island noiserockers Daughters are on their way to become my favorite band of 2018 (together with Gnod). They released two track already called “Satan in the Wait” and “The Reason They Hate Me”. These two anxious tracks are extremely powerful and together with the new track “Long Road, No Turns” i have decide that the rest of the album should be absolutely terrible to not become one of the best albums of the year.
Their album “You Won’t Get What You Want” will be out October 26 on Ipecac.
Listen to the third track “Long Road, No Turns” by Daughters.

Japan’s greatest psychedelic rockers Kikagaku Moyo are back

The band started as a free music collective in the summer of 2012 on the streets of Tokyo. Quickly evolving over the years with their unique sound  the band makes themselves ready for the release of their fourth LP.
The album “Masana Temples” will be out October 5.
Being one of my favorite bands I am very happy to introduce to you their first single “Gatherings”. With almost 7 minutes of Psychedelic bliss and kraut their first track is absolutely gorgeous.

The amazing psych by Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin

In February the San Diego psychedelic rock band Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin released a 7 ” of true beauty. On the B-side was a gorgeous cover of Solitary Man by Neil Diamond. I became an instant fan of their spacey sound.
With much pleasure i can tell you they released the first track from their upcoming EP. “Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin” is a 7 minute psychedelic space trip that takes the listeners through a cosmic journey.
Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin show what they are worth on the new track and prove they belong with the big fish.
“Cabin Fever” will be out August 14.
