Ah March, beautiful March, the month in quarantine, the month of sickness, the beginning of the end of the word. You people were all so stressed out and buying toiletpaper that almost nobody came looking to my magnificent website. So I made a quick overview of the death month. This list is extremely cool, the bands that released music this month where again incredible so take your time and listen. really awesome stuff, I put some releases a bit bigger because they are so cool.
This is the second Sex Swing track from their upcoming album “Type II”. Over the years they had members from Mugstar, Bonnacons of a Doom, Part Chimp, Dethscalator, Earth, Dead Neanderthalls and Idles and I don’t know who else. Their first track was called “Valentine’s Day At The Gym” and now their released their secodn track “Passover”. The band continues on the track of fuzzed out and noisy experimental psychedelia. These two tracks are very phnotic and promise much good for the full album wich will be released May 15. Accompanied with tasty video.
You know that moment you want to completely destroy something, you know like smash something extremely hard, preferably someones face but since that is not okay you really want to smash something else but there is nothing to smash and you only get more mad. Well, I do not have a solution for that but I do found music that makes it way worse, that feeling will multiply by ten and you will come out stronger or dried up like a raisin. Funny this split is out on Anxious Records, very fitting.
Cuntroaches are from berlin and make experimental electronic noisepunk.
Guttersnipe are leeds most famous noisemakers, probably.
Do you want to punishing music, do you want anti-virus music? maybe even want people to stay away. Listen to the gorgeous Cuntroaches/Guttersnipe Split.
Are you in need of some experimental stuff? Do you need some noises to trip away too? Then you have come to the right adress, God Unknown Records has put out a double split 7″ for the celebration of its 50th release. Tune in to hear the mysterious Kill Life featuring CRASS’s Penny Rimbaud and INTEGRITY’s Dwid Hellion / Casual Sect / Melting Hand and KLÄMP
Be sure to check and buy more music from the label. Check out the Vol. 4 sampler here:
After their excellent self titled album in September last year the band is already back with 2 tracks as a first in a series of limited edition albums of recondite recordings by The Utopia Strong. “The Deathless Queen” is the first of these two tracks that is available for a listen. The track was recorded direct to stereo as a single performance at The High Castle, June 2019. This first track is almost 20 minutes of experimental ambient, electronic and psych. Tune in and check it out. Out February 26.
Funny, but for some strange reason my previous post of Sex Swing’s self titled album in 2016 got me the most views. It is like a crapload of people where explicitly searching for this band on google.
In 2017 the band released a 7″ split with Clinic too. The music that Sex Swing makes is kinda perfect for me, they mix fuzzed out psychedelia ,noiserock and postpunk and experiment with these genres. Over the years they had members from Mugstar, Bonnacons of a Doom, Part Chimp, Dethscalator, Earth, Dead Neanderthalls and Idles and I don’t know who else is in this band, Jesus maybe?
Now it is time for new music, they shared the first new track “Valentine’s Day At The Gym” from their upcoming album “Type II” wich will be released May 12 on Rocket Recordings!
Is this going to be one of the best noises of the year? quite possible, the first track is hypnotic krautnoise at its best. Tune in for this spectaculair piece of music now.
The Gothenburg band Hollow Ship will release their debut album “Future Remains” on Punk Slime Recordings on April 3. This band (with Mattias Glavå from Dungen, …) makes something quite unique, the base for the music is psychedelic rock but the overal vibe is something new and it is excellent and refreshing. The first two tracks are out and they sound really good, they sound happy and filled with hazy fun. Very interested in what the rest will sound like. Tune in and listen to some Hollow Ship.
Codex Serafini are a Saturnian Ritualistic band hailing from outer-space, currently passing through Earth and temporally residing in Sussex. They just released their first track from their upcoming album “Serpents of Enceladus”. The first track is something really cool, it is two minuts of psychedelic punk. Tune in and enjoy the first track, the full album will be released February 7.
I love long titles and I love Skeletonized so you can imagine my joy when I heard there was going to be a collaborative album between the Pennsylvania experimental noisejazz band Skeletonized and the Pennsylvania experimental trio How Things Are Made. The album starts of great with some eerie wild sax and ambient stuff on the background instantly setting the vibe for this album. On the rest of the album we can hear that these two bands are pretty damn serieus about it, heavy drums, repetitive sax and experiments creat the most eerie weird jazz vibe ever and i love it. Tune in for some weirdness now.
I shared Igorrr a couple of times on Fuzzy Sun wich is maybe a bit atypical but I just love the band.The combination of metal, drum and bass, opera, strange folk and you know whatever just brings me joy. Every time they come with something different and each times for some strange reason it works. “Savage Sinusoid” was released in 2017 and was like french circusmusic mixed with black and death metal. This time its hard to tell what the full album will bring because it is only one track yet. The track “Very Noise” is a combi of electronics and heavy riffs and trippy basslines. The track is taken from the album “Spirituality and Distortion” wich will be released March 27.
The Mexican band Muuk makes experimental rock that goes from trippy psych to heavy stoner riffs. Their new album “Balbulceo” will be released February 28, 2020 through Devil in the Woods.
We can listen to two released track right now and they are absolutely gorgeous.
On the new Whalesong album ‘Radiance of a Thousand Suns’ there are collaborations of Thor Harris (SWANS, Xiu Xiu, Wrekmeister Harmonies, The Angels of Light), Wacław Vogg Kiełtyka (Decapitated, Lux Occulta), Aleksander ‘Pope’ Papierz (Sigihl) and award-winning vibraphonist Tomasz Herisz.
I have always loved those weird experimental bands and the Polish duo Whalesong are one of them for sure. The two tracks that are already out are heavy depressing beasts of songs. Repeating riffs, noise and industrial sludge seem to be the main ingredients. Loads of weird sounds like gongs, bells, hammered dulcimer and other strange stuff. Throw these together with these great musician and they created something unique and eerie. Tune in now and check out the two tracks before the release of the album on November 26.
The composer Glenn Branca died in 2018. In February 2016 he made his last work ‘The Third Ascension’ wich was released October fourth through SYSTEM NEUTRALIZERS.
This release is the same princible as his first release with the name ‘The Ascension’ wich was a 4-guitar, bass and drums format. On this first recording in 1981 there were artist like Theoretical Girls’ Wharton Tiers and Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo.
Tune in for this gorgeous piece of experimental rock now.
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’.
Somewhere in Ohio there is a band called Drose. This band has released first album with the same name in 2016 and they have taken this album and combines it with their debut 7″ ‘A Voice” and they have thrown in same unreleased tracks as well. All this is remastered by veteran engineer Carl Saff.
‘boy man machine+’ will be out on October 18 2019 via Computer Students, a
unique, futuristic record label. It will be the first under their new Anatomical Reissues series, which reissues albums with highly conceptual design and presentation.
This album is a highly experimental record, one that really hits you in your face with its destructive noise, calms you down with its ambient soundscapes and scares the shit out of you with its eerie atmosphere. ‘boy man machine+’ is beautiful and cerfully crafted. It does not happen very often that a experimental record like this is so succesfull.
Enter the world of Drose and buy yourself one of the gorgeous designs of the album designed by Computer Students.
Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Body/Head, Free Kitten, Glitterbust) has released her first solo album. The thing is called ‘No Home Record’ and has exceeded all my expectations. Kim Gordon has made some absolutely great music since Sonic Youth, I really like her Body/Head project so I was thinking in those lines but I did not expect the sounds on this album.
Kim Gordon drops a magnificent album with ‘No Home Record’, the album has a lot of different influences. There are noiserock tracks on it that are very catchy and rocknroll but she experiments with electronics and she does it masterfully.
Not a lot of artist get away with suck different styles on an album but Kim gets away with it and its is truly great.
‘No Home Record’ is out today, October 11 on Matador Records.
‘Leaving Meaning’ is the the upcoming album from experimental rockers Swans. The first track ‘It’s Coming It’s Real’ has already been released.
This album features members from the 2010-2017 swans line-up (Norman Westberg, Thor Harris, Kristof Hahn, Christopher Pravdica, and Phil Puleo) and extra collaborations from Anna & Maria von Hausswolff, Ben Frost, The Necks, Baby Dee, A Hawk and A Hacksaw, Dana Schechter, Jennifer Gira, and more.
Now we get the second single called ‘Hanging Man’. This 10 minute track is something that gets under your skin. an absolute epic piece of work.
‘Leaving Meaning’ will be released October 5 through Mute/Young God.

In a couple of days is the release of the new album called ‘No Home Record’ by Kim Gordon. She already dropped a couple of tracks and they are all really good. Now it is time for the thrid track called ‘Hungry Baby’. Tune in and get ready for the album release. Out October 11.
This year is an incredible year for noiserock and psychedelic rock, so I am having so much fun listening to all these new bands and albums and I have barely time enough to listen to it more the twice. But for this I took my time, Girl Band’s previous music is absolutely awesome and I have been a fan for quite a while now. So my expectations on this new album called ‘The Talkies’ were really high and I knew they were almost impossible to fill. Then I heard the album and I was completely blown away. ‘The Talkies’ is perfect, this album is so immensly experimental and still all of the tracks find a way in your head to make you an addict. Girl Band have found a way to create the perfect sound for noiserock.
The way they combine this experimental noise and still create something listenable, even catchy is just beyond me. The thing that struck me most is how the band uses different genres in one song and not only gets away with it but makes the tracks so much stronger. In the middle of a track Girl Band switches over to electronic beats that fit so good in their music they create something entirely new.
From the intro to the most experimental track this album is perfect for me and will always be. First time I give an album 10/10 and I give it with love. This is art.
Prissy Whip is something else, they have a sound not really from this timeline. I kinda picture a far away spaceship where there is an all-lifeform allowed party and Prissy Whip is the headliner of the party. While they play their futuristic noise some of those hipster tripletrunk aliens talk about how it sounds a bit like early humonoid punk and how they knew them way before they where popular.
After the release of the first track ‘Sketch Artist’ from Kim’s first solo album we get the new track called ‘Air Bnb’. I absolutely loved the ‘Sketch Artist’ but this new track is goddamn awesome, it is more noiserock, it is chaotic and still catchy. Kim Rules and this album will rule too!. The album is called ‘No Home Record’ and will be released 11 October through Matador Records.
‘Leaving Meaning’ is the the upcoming album from experimental rockers Swans. This album features members from the 2010-2017 swans line-up (Norman Westberg, Thor Harris, Kristof Hahn, Christopher Pravdica, and Phil Puleo) and extra collaborations from Anna & Maria von Hausswolff, Ben Frost, The Necks, Baby Dee, A Hawk and A Hacksaw, Dana Schechter, Jennifer Gira, and more.
‘Leaving Meaning’ will be released October 5 through Mute/Young God. The first released track is called ‘It’s Coming It’s Real’ and features Anna and Maria von Hausswolff.
This has been out for a while now, I know, and I haven’t been posting about it, I know. But I have a reason why I waited long to post this. I had high hopes for this after their first collaboration in 2018. Keiji Haino and Sumac have been changing the rules in the sonic world since that release. Now in June their second collab was released. The reason why I waited this long is that this stuff is kinda special, it is a vortex of experimental noise and metal and it is not an easy listen, but if you are in the right mood it is a very rewarding experience. It was difficult to find the right frame of mind to listen to this but i found it. So this second collab is even more experimental then the first one but i can only tell you that you need to find a good moment and then you will be sold.
Kim Gorden will release her first solo albm ‘No Home Record’ through Matador Records on 11 October. She shared her first singe ‘Sketch Artist’ wich is actually a really good track. her new music is dark, industrial and full of catchy beats. Again experimental, wich is of course what we want from Kim Gordon, searching for the extremes of the sonic world.
No Home Record Tracklisting:
1 Sketch Artist
2 Air BnB
3 Paprika Pony
4 Murdered Out
5 Don’t Play It
6 Cookie Butter
7 Hungry Baby
9 Get Yr Life Back
Watch the video now.
Okay, so I absolutely love noise rock, you probably knew that by now. I wanted a good and solid noiserock list since I started Fuzzy Sun but I need to be honest with myself, I know the cult bands, the ‘popular’ ones and a load of new ones since I started this website but i am no expert on the genre. So what better then ask for help.
So I asked Ralp Schaarschmidt (TRIGGER CUT / BUZZ RODEO) for help and i instantly got a ridiculous long list of the best noiserock/postpunk and stuff from the last decades.
This list is huge and is full of gems, both ‘popular’ and underground, old and new.
It is going to take time to listen to everything on this list but I promise you it will be worth it. Due to the length of the list this post will be in couple of parts. So this is Part I of the Ralph Schaarschmidt List. Enjoy

If you have spend some time on Fuzzy Sun you probably have noticed that I am a bit of a fan of the Beyond Beyond is Beyond label. Without fail they release albums from great bands ranging from psych to jazz to experimental music. So here is their summer sampler. Buy the thing, it costs 5 bucks (or more) and all proceeds will be going to RAICES, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services; a nonprofit that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to under-served immigrant children, families and refugees in Central and South Texas.
Ohio experimental noise rockers Hissing Tiles released the first track from their upcoming album. ‘Boychoir’ is a dynamic and chaotic track dripping with nerveous energy. The track is from their upcoming album ‘Boychoir’ and will be released on the the experimental label Whited Sepulchre (Midwife, Planning For Burial, Forest Management).
Listen now and turn loud.
This Swedish four-piece makes absolutely epic music. Their latest album ‘Dim Sum’ was released April 16 on Drone Rock Records.
The tracks on this album are challenging and tense, they create a cosmic and psychedelic vibe wich grabs you by the balls. It’s been a while since i heard and experimental band with such a captivating sound. Each track is refreshing and differs enough to make this a very good album.
Favorite track: Fractured Haircut
Take a mindpill and tune in to ‘Dim Sum’ by Eye Make The Horizon.
Deafkids is a Brazilian band that released one hell of a weird and original album in March called ‘Metaprogramação’.
Together with the Brazilian two piece Rakta they have made a two song EP with otherworldy heaviness. Tune in for some weird awesomeness.
Ah yes, everytime i see a release on God Unknown Records I get all excited. The God Unknown Label deals in the experimental, the weirder stuff, sometimes heavy noise and soothing and weird.
Now it is time for two more releases. GOD051 contains music from Daniel Bachmann, Forrest Marquisse & Ian McColm and on the B side music from Haress.
Daniel Bachman is an American Primitive guitarist and drone musician from Fredericksburg, Virginia, United States.
Forrest Marquisse is a American lap / pedal steel player.
Ian G. McColm is a multi-instrumentalist and composer residing in Richmond, Virginia.
HARESS consists of the core guitar duo of David Hand and Elizabeth Still, based in Bishops Castle in the Shropshire Hills
GOD052 contains music from The Left Outsides and a track from Mésange.
The Left Outsides are: Mark Nicholas and Alison Cotton, a husband and wife duo based in London, England whose atmospheric, hypnotic songs echo Nico’s icy European folk, pastoral psychedelia and chilly English fields at dawn.
Mésange is a collaboration between violinist Agathe Max (Kuro) and guitarist Luke Mawdsley (Cavalier Song).
Be sure to check and buy more music from the label. Check out the Vol. 4 sampler here:
Froth released their new work ‘Duress’ on June 7th. ‘Duress is produced by Tomas Dolas (Oh Sees/Mr. Elevator).
An album filled with blissful psychedelic pop. enjoy
The London heaviness Black Shape released their new record on Hominid Sounds and it contains one track of 45 minutes called ‘London’ wich is the same title as the album.
This record is incredible dense, heavy and an original sonic torpedo. Haunted vocals over gorgeous riffs, noiserock vibes and terrorizing sax, screetching guitars, perfectly timed bleak, brooding parts and some experimental psychedelic atmosphere! This record has made my day complete.
This may be easily one of the best pieces of heaviness of the year and please take 45 minutes to ingest this beauty.
Again an incredible release on Hominid! Tune in for Black Shape’s ‘London’.
This post is about the band that is Skeletonized. I covered them a couple of times already and each time i am surprised by their output. Sometimes there is free jazz and some times electronic music but each time it is very experimental.
This time we get a more agressive approach with ‘We Gladly Feast on Those Who Would Subdue Us’. The drums are in full attack modus and the sax sounds like an epic warcry. When i hear this i picture a horde of exotic Orcs marching through dangerous mudlands on their way to feast on tiny humans.
Skeletonized keeps releasing experimental stuff of great quality and this latest one may be my favourite. Tune in now.
Check their latest albums out too.
The Portuguese experimental project Signs of the Silhoutte consists of Jorge Nuno ( guitar), João Paulo Entrezede and Miguel Cravo (conceptual art and vídeo projections visuals), André Calvário (bass).
On their first released track we can here Makoto Kawabata from Acid Mothers Temple. Check out ‘Pressure Time Field’.
The Brazilian band fits best in the catagory weird, and weird is what we like. The trio creates an unique blend of noise, punk, experimental and Briazilian sounds and it comes out pretty cool. This is something new, something that has not been done yet and they do it good.
Their new album ‘Metaprogramação’ is out March 25 on Neurot Recordings. Tune in for awesomeness.
Necio Records was established in 2013 and deals in prog , psych, Stoner, doom, jazz, experimental and noise. The Peruvian label has built up quite an interesting catalogue over the years and i wanted to share an overview of the bands on the label.
I will pick a couple of bands on the label that are quite original. And I will start with the first release on the label by the band Papa Nui. I can’t seem to find a lot of info on this duo but the two tracks that are released in 2015 are pretty cool. The very long tracks feature wild saxophone, and riffs with a high heavy psych vibe. Check out ‘Rigal Kentaur’ here.
Next up is the magnificent space rock by ‘Spatial Moods’ wich is a four piece band from Lima. they released their S/T album in 2017 and is one hell of a trip. cannot recommend enough. Check out an interview they did with Do you even psychedelic?.
The Terrorist Collective is a trio that has a couple of releases on Necio records as well and they have a very interesting sound, they can go from noise to trippy psychedelia.
Necio Records is not only spacerock and with the following band that becomes clear, Dumo is an experimental noise/jazz trio and in 2016 they released ‘Auri Sacra Fames’ wich is hard to describe so you better listen for yourself.
El Jefazo is the first band we come across on Necio Records that leans to fuzzed out stoner. They released their S/T in 2016.
Acestro is a band covered on Fuzzy Sun before. They make these slow cosmic riffs and each release is a good one. This one is called ‘El regreso de los brujos’ and was released in 2016.
Now we go full Peruvian doom with Satánicos Marihuanos, but it is not only doom, they can shift eaily to psych.
And ofcourse, quite fitting in this label we come across the 20th release on Necio Records, Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. with ‘Either The Fragmented Body Or The Reconstituted Soul’. The band that never quits releasing psychedelic trippy stuff, and on this release they do not dissapoint either.
The Slow Voyage released their album ‘Time Lapse’ in 2018 and uses a fine blend of garagerock and psychedelic rock. One hell of an album that needs to be turned on loud.
Familia De Lobos is a band that made quit a ripple with their S/T album.
Rito Verdugo is 4 piece Heavy psych band that just thrashes all the way. ‘Cosmos’ was recorded live in 2018.
Los Acidos is the last band i am going to share here, so by now you will have an idea what kind of music you can expect from Necio Records, I suggest you follow them and check out many more of their releases. A lmagical label filled with trippy goods and cosmic vibes.
From my favorite label comes another release. This is the 50th release by the God Unknown Record label and to celebrate that you can order the double split 7″ with the mysterious Kill Life featuring CRASS’s Penny Rimbaud and possibly members of Integrity / Fucked Up / Eyehategod and more…), Casual Sect, Acid Cannibals and KLAMP.
The God Unknown Label deals in obscure and heavy stuff. you can find experimental music, punk, noiserock, kraut, garagerock,… .
Be sure to check and buy more music from the label.
The alternative version, the research and development wing of GNOD consists of co-founders Paddy Shine and Chris Haslam.
As a fan of weirdness and a fan of the brutal sound of Gnod this is something to check out. A very ambient and meditive exploration of sound.
Weirdness is alive and you can find it here. Check out VOl.3 by GNOD R&D on Sound of The Cobra.
Today I wanted to share with you is the solo work of Ben Shemie (Suuns). I was very much looking forward to this, not really sure what to expect. Their is a lot in common between his solo work and that of Suuns wich is a good thing.
There is that experimental psychedelic vibe that makes his music unique and full of feeling.
‘A Skeleton’ is a magical crafted work thats full of feels and surprises. Released February 15 on Hands In The Dark.
Check him out now and find him and more on Fuzzy Sun’s List.
The Pittsburgh band’s current lineup includes saxophone, drums, synth & samples(members of Triangle & Rhino & Fantasy Crime).
Their music can range from free jazz to drone and electronics. Each release brings a refreshing new sound.
This time Skeletonized released “Barf bag” wich focuses a bit more on drums and drone. The best way to listen to this ominous music is loud and on your headphones.
Check their latest album and previous music out.
A 4 bands split on S.K Records with Noyades – Tomaga – Jozef Van Wissem – La Jungle. Check out the French acid/psych sound by Noyades, The very experimental stuff from Tomaga, Lute player Jozef van Wissem and the Belgian riffing duo LA JUNGLE.
Black to Comm is the solo project of Marc Richter. His new album “Seven Horses For Seven Kings” is now out through Thrill Jockey.
With samples and digital manipulation Marc Richet creates a challenging new sound. Something deep psychedelic and dreamy.
This album is innovative and it feel deeply personal. Listen to “Seven Horses For Seven kings” now.
Favorite track: Fly on You
The collaboration between film maker/musician Jim Jarmusch and lute player Jozef Van Wissem is one for the fan of experimental music. The last album they did together dates back to 2012.
They released a first track called “Concerning the White Horse” and is a dark and brooding track.
The second track is called “The Two Paths”.
The tracks are from their upcoming album ‘An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil’ wich will be released February 8 on Sacred Bones.
From God Unknown Records comes again a great limited edition split. This time we can hear the noise rock band Arabrot from Haugesund, Norway and the Dutch experimental drone/psych Radar Men From The Moon.
Order yourself the 7 inch now while they are still available.
The collaboration between film maker/musician Jim Jarmusch and lute player Jozef Van Wissem is one for the fan of experimental music. The last album they did together dates back to 2012.
They released a first track called “Concerning the White Horse” and is a dark and brooding track. The track is from their upcoming album ‘An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil’ wich will be released February 8 on Sacred bones.
The Italian band Spirale released their album “Carne della mia carne” in December last year. With a newer line up the band made a more industrial approach on their latest.
The whole thing is a mix of sludgy riffs, industrial tones and noise rock elements.
“Carne della mia carne” An agressive and dark album, one to put on loud.
Mark Deutrem (Bellringer, ex-Melvins, Clown Alley) released three tracks from his upcoming album “The Blue Bird”. The new album by producer/songwriter/composer will be released January 4th, 2019 through Season Of Mist.
Prepare yourself for a very varied album with lots of different genres creeping in. Check out the first three tracks “The Happines Machine”, “Maximum Hemingway” and “Nothing Out There”. Out on Season of Mist.
Xiu Xiu latest album ‘Forget’ was on my 2017 best of list. The experimental band with lots of noise influences was formed by Jamie Stewart ( and the one constant member) in 2002.
So I am very happy and excited to present you their first new track “Scisssssssors” from their upcoming album “Girl With Basket of Fruit” that is going to be released on February 8, 2019.
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.
