Quebec rockers Population II are going to release an album on Castle Face Records (the label from John Dwyer from Thee Oh Sees). Their first track ‘Instrospection’ is out now and is quite impressive, this is fuzz fueled heavy psych of great quality. The band will release their full album ‘À la Ô Terre’ on October 30 and I for one am very much looking forward to hear more of this gorgeous fuzz.
The Budos is band is back with their excellent fusion of Ethiopian afrobeat and fuzzrock. Their previous album ‘V’ wich was released in 2019 was a true pleasure to listen to.
Now the second track wich is called ‘Gun Metal Grey’ from the upcoming album ‘Long in the Tooth’ is out and it promising for perfect music for this summer! The album will be released October 9.
Tune in now.
KLÄMP is Jason Stöll (Sex Swing, Twin Sister, Mugstar, God Unknown Records, Bonnacons of Doom), Greg Wynne (Manatees) and Lee Vincent (Pulled Apart By Horses, Concentration Champ). And on the new album you can hear Colin Webster (With his amazing Sax on a dozen projects) and Wayne Adams (from the brutal Deafbrick) too . Now Put all these people together and you get something really dirty. Their new album ‘Hate You’ starts of really heavy with the same titles track ‘Hate you’, then you get this aslmost catchy heavyweight ‘Arise’. ‘An Orb’ shows what the band is all about, this is a noisy track full of great guitar work. ‘Big Bad Heart’ is an industrial remix like destructive track, ‘TJ’ is riff feuled energy and epicness and the album ends with ‘No Nerves’ wich got me thinking a bit of Fu Manchu.
This album is a eerie noisy fuzzfest. Absolutely love it.
Aha! The Budos is band is back with their excellent fusion of ethiopian afrabeat something and fuzzrock. Their previous album ‘V’ wich was released in 2019 was a true pleasure to listen to.

Here is the single ‘Returning’
Ty Segall is slowly turning in some rock God, releasing albums faster then light, under his own name or his many side project that are all awesome. No Ty gives us this incredible 29 minutes Zebulon (remember the Osees session) session. Fuzz up your day with Ty.
This is the setlist:
You’re the Doctor
KLÄMP is Jason Stöll (Sex Swing, Twin Sister, Mugstar, God Unknown Records, Bonnacons of Doom), Greg Wynne (Manatees) and Lee Vincent (Pulled Apart By Horses, Concentration Champ). KLÄMP makes fuzzed out noise rock, bass heavy post whatever. The first track ‘Arise’ from their upcoming album ‘Hate You’ is already released. The album will be released on Godunknown in Spetember. Now we get the second track called ‘An Orb’. This track is again raw, filled with dirty punk and noiserock. Tune in now.
Some of you may have heard of Charles from being the Lead Guitarist in FUZZ alongside Ty Segall and Chad Ubovich. He’s also been the drummer for Ty’s Freedom Band and the guitarist for Ty Segall Band. Here in the live session, Charles plays some of my favorite songs from his solo project “CFM”. ENJOY
Below are CFM’s releases:
Browsing through the internet I found this band called Tambourinen and lord, this instrumental band is absolutely gorgeous. Their music is hypnotic krautrock but it is so fuzzed out it still has a heavy feel to it. very trippy stuff. I recommend this to every psych fan. This is the side project by Grant Beyschau of The Myrrors
It is quite incredible how much fuzz this French band can make while still sounding so catchy. They have a really have fun garagerock kinda vibe in their music. Each track peppered with psychedelic rock and modular synth is like upgrading their music. Is this garagerock, psych or spacerock? Well, I got some good news, this is one of these bands that combine these genres perfectly and do it in style.Their new album “Silvered Hearse” is a victory, a true triumph for fuzzed outpsych and garage, this album is really good and everyone should like, buy it. It is released on Stolen Body Records.
Recently I was thinking: ‘Is there such a thing as noiserock in Africa?’. So i went searching and asking around and this seemed not that easy. It is difficult to find noiserock but god, did I found awesome music! So this will be my Africa appreciation post filled with garage, punk, psych and other stuff. There is going to be a bit of everything here, but everything will be absolutely epic, I promise. Oh, and I will try to share bands or musicians that live in Africa, too keep it simple. This post ins ongoing and stuff will be added now and then. Please, iff you know of awesome stuff, let me know.
This is a three piece from Durban in South Africa that mix stoner and noiserock and stuff. Their latest album ‘Birth Create Dissipate’ is pretty wild.
Again from South Africa this a garagepunk bank called Make-Overs. They have released a couple albums and their music is pretty wild. Its a duo, wich i feel is alfways cooler.
This is an excellent record! ‘The Black Tapes’ was released in 1986 and is possibly my favourite on this list (favourite track ‘vlermuis’). This record feels like the closest I came to finding noiserock in Africa. This is the best Cape Town music I have heard!
Return To Worm Mountain
It is quite incredible what kind of bands I am discovering thanks to this post. Someone commented I forgot about this band. They seem to be a two piece between the the singer / guitarist of Black Math and some strange individual. Their music absolutely rules and they have just a new album out called ‘Therianthropy’ (it is about monsters).
This is gorgeous heavy music from south africa from somewher ein the seventies. Heavy rock with acid and punk. This Whole album rules from beginning to end!
Only last year the Durban, Sout African band Taekwondo Sleepover released a new album “Sink or Float” and it is goddamn incredible. Never thought I would find suck incredible stuff. This is goddamn african noiserock, the stuff I was searching for! f. An absolute banger!
Okey, sorry for all the people who are taking this way more serious than me, I know William Onyeabor does not make ear shredding bonecrushing music but its William Onyeabor and it s so beautifull and trippy and it fits on Fuzzy Sun, there I said it.
Som dirty punk, and when I mean really dirty. From Soweto in South Africa. If you want to know what the name means you can look it up yourself.
RIKKI ILILONGA & MUSI O TUNYA
Someone told me to look for the term ZAMROCK and now there is going to be an awfull lot of zamrock on this post because this mix of african music and psych is beyond awesome. Seems lots of people agree this band are the fathers of Zamrock.
Another Zamrockband! ‘Black Power’ is one hell of an album full of fuzz and fun.
Getatchew Mekuria & The Ex & Guests
going to break my rules here myself because this shit is absolutely very awesome. And The Ex played in this if that helps a bit.
Group Bombino and Group Inerani
Nigerian psych with political protest songs of the Tuareg people’s rebellion against the governments of Niger and Mali.
Nigeria Rock Special: Psychedelic Afro-Rock & Jazz Funk in 1970s Nigeria
This is lazy, I know, I am making it me a whole lot easier. Here is a compilation of Nigerian fuzz
I think most of you know Tuareg musicians from the Sahara Desert region of northern Mali.
On the same label as the Make-overs is the band is the South African heavy garage/noise band Sticky Antlers. chech out this fuzzed out goodie!
Just like Sticky Antlers and Make-Overs this band is on the KRNGY logo label. This is pretty dirty garagenoise.
Chrissy Zebby Tembo
This sounds a bit like the retro african version of Ty Segal.
Saharan psych of the highest order
Les Filles de Illighadad
Very trippy world/psych from Abalak.
deep fuzz and psych in the 70’s by pioneer band Amanazfrom Zambia ofcourse.
Ever heard of Wrust? it is like the African Sepultura. Tune in for some Botswana Metal.
very angry music from South Africa. Listen to some Chaos Christ.
Ofo The Black Company
Very fuzzed out garage and rocknroll from South Africa. Tune in for their latest album
This UK trio blends folk and psych and fuzz in an interesting mix. Their new EP is called “Fresh Plastic” and has four tracks. The tracks can go from a normal rock track to extremely trippy cosmic psych. And to make it even better, I think, there is a harmonica hear and there. Play now and enjoy the fuzz.
Are you ready for a good dose of Philadelphian garagefuzz? These five dudes create very fuzzed out garage and psych, the kind that gives you loads of energy, the makes you jump around like a twerp. Their album “Cabin Fever Dreams’ is out since March 20. It starts off quite dreamy but the groove and garage soons joins the party. Be cool and listen to Slomo Sapiens. Pretty damn cool music in these times. Enjoy
The French trio Modulator II is back with new music. Their self-titled is from 2018 so it is real good they are back because we can all use a dose of their fuzz. The band creates heavy garage/fuzz that numbs the mind. Their new track “Silvered Hearse” is out and comes from their upcoming album with the same name that will be released April 24 on Stolen Body Records. Pre-Order here
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”.
This is one of the first bands I shared on Fuzzy Sun when I started the website. This Mexican band creates extremely fuzzy psych combined with a wall of noise. The music is very dense and heavy and still evokes a dreamlike vibe in their music. Their previous album is called “Obscure Daze” and dates back to 2017. So I am verry happy to introduce you the new single by Sunset Images wich is called “Centro de la Ciudad”, a magnificent piece of psychedelic noise.
The Cult of Dom Keller has been creating cosmic music since 2007, they released EP’s, splits, cd’s, LP on all kinds of cool labels. Now they released their album “Ascend!” wich will on Cardinal Fuzz. This album is 9 tracks of experimental psych, cosmic trippy vibes and space rock. An excellent album! Favourite track: We’re All Fucked (Up).

Prepare yourself for ten minutes of cosmic fuzz and buy yourself the EP.
When the “No Water” EP by the japanese band Dhidalah came out I was instantly hooked. Their combination of heavy psych, kraut and psychedelic rock is gorgeous. Thas was back in 2017. In the meantime they released the track 36 minute space rock jam “Moon People”. The trio is now back with another piece of epic space rock. Their new album is out December 1 on Gurguru Brain. We can already listen to the four tracks and this is some amazing stuff. I highly recommend this to every music fan to dive deep into this heavy piece of art.
Favourite track: Adamski
There are a lot of Japanese psych bands of excellent quality and I have made a fine list for you. Check out “The Cosmic Side of Japan“.
These three are former members of Mugstar, Manatees and Geisha and together they form KLÄMP. Their new self titled album is out and is filled with fuzzed out heavy rock. A bit of psych and noise here and there makes this a pretty fun listen. There are some catchy rocknroll track on there but some really chaotic noiserock tracks too. KLÄMP new self titled album is a fun listen, their music balances perfectly between listenable heavy rock and unlistenalbe noise (wich is a good thing). Listen for yourself. Out on Box Records.
