Boris release new video for track ‘Zerkalo’ from ‘No’

‘LφVE & EVφL’ was the previous album by The Japanese experimental rockers Boris, that album was filled with doom and epic guitar work. Now they are back with their new album ‘No’. This album is quite different then their latest work. This Boris is the agressive version, the hardcore and trash version, filled with epic solo work and gorgeous riffs, perfect vocals for the music. Yet they stay true to their sound, like at the end of ‘Loveless’ the typical doom sound comes back. This is a band with years of experience and an absolute talent to make heavy music.

‘No’ is an intense and fun listen, with a nostalgic vibe to it. It is awesome from start to finish. Boris is on The Cosmic Side of Japan too.

Now they released the new video ‘Zerkalo’ from that new album and it is the perfect time to revisit the whole album again.

Tune in now.

A new track by Japanese-Korean nomadic family Tengger

Tengger‘ is Itta and Marqido and their son Raai, a travelling musical family with roots in Korea and Japan. Their latest album ‘Nomad’ is due for June 12th on Beyond Beyond is Beyond. Their ‘new age drone magic’, as they call it, is as calming as it is uplifting.

Tengger apparently means ‘unlimited expanse of sky’ in Mongolian. The moniker fits the music perfectly. With a harmonium, a battery of analogue synths and sometimes children’s toys they create a perfectly unique, spiritual sound. It’s easy to lose yourself in the waves of their repetitive, hypnotic music. The term ‘spiritual journey’ comes to mind.

‘Nomad’ will be released on June 1 but first we get the third track ‘Water’. Take this soothing music in now.

This Japanese-Korean nomadic family shows you what nature sounds like

This might not be a perfect fit for the average Fuzzy Sun-reader, but we like it a lot. And hey, these are hard times. If you want to re-connect with the world around you and you’re too lazy for yoga, Tengger is the answer. Watch the beautiful video below, and make sure to listen to the track ‘Eurasia’ as well.

Japanese psych rockers Joseph of Kirezi share 2 tracks

The Tokyo psych rockers  Joseph of Kirezi make fuzzed out psych and new they are back with two new tracks that they released in March. The band has some pretty cool tunes released in the past and these new two are self recorded but of really good quality. The first track “Acid Wave” is epic psychedelic rock, raging solos and trippy vibes.The second track “Hirasaka” is 8 minutes long and is something between an epic heavy psych track and mellow cosmic tunes. The bend is together with a whole lot of other Japanese heaviness on my Cosmic List.

Listen to Nijimusi by OOIOO

After a six year hiatus the Japanese band OOIOO under the leadership of Yoshimi, also a founding member of Boredoms, is back with new music. OOIOO creates all sorts of experimental music and it is always fun to hear what kind of atmopshere theyr created now.

Their upcoming album “Nijimusi” is out January 17, 2020 on Thrill Jockey.

On “Nijimisu’ the band presents again a great album, the energy and originality just dripping from the record. Tracks that are almost exploding from the punk vibe and others with weird tribal rythms and others almost chill jazzy indie tracks. Music that is so hypnotic is difficult to remember if we live in 4020 or 2020. Well, you know what I mean, this album has a lot going on and for some very strange reason it just fits all together very good. This music is an excellent way to start 2020.

Listen to the impressive ‘Nijimusi” by OOIOO.

Boris release ‘LφVE & EVφL’

Too put Boris in a box is a bit too easy, yes, their music is drenched in doom but Boris are a very unique band with a sound that has shifted and changed through the years. Their new records ‘LφVE & EVφL’, for me personally, is Boris at their peak, at their absolute best. The sound on their new record is sounds like a balance between light and happiness and haunted and filled with dread. Some tracks can be soothing and filled with hope and then you have those riffs and vocals that are dragging doom and ruin with the most gorgeous of guitar solos making that make it even more epic. The album starts with an epic postrock track that speaks of hope, the next track ‘Coma’ is follow-up but the dread is building up. ‘Evol’ is 16 minutes of experimental songmaking, this track is made of epic ambient doom, doomriffs that suck your soul out and postrock solos. ‘Uzume’ is bleak magnificent drone and ‘In the pain(t)’ ambient. The album ends with ‘Shadow of Skull’ wich is my favorite. This is brilliant, take your time and listen to Boris.

The Japanese doomlords Boris are back

Their is going to be a new double LP called ‘LφVE & EVφL’ by the Japanese Heavyweight Boris. We can expect it to land October 4th through Third Man Records. The first track from that upcoming beast is released and is called ‘Love’ and is a gorgeous piece of work. The riffs are tantalizingly slow and create an eerie atmosphere together with the gosthlike vocals. With this track the trio again shows they are masters in what they do.

Tune in for the first track ‘Love’ and pre-order the album here: https://orcd.co/boris_love_evol

Heavy Japanese psych Hibushibire release Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out!’

The Japanese band Hibushibire released their debut ‘Freak Out Orgasm!’ in 2017 and it was in instant succes, the heavy psych sound was refreshing and filled with energy. So now the band released their second album on Riot Season Records called ‘Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out!’.

The 4 tracks are filled with heavy psych riffs, solos and great vocals. For me it is Hibushibire that nails the heavy psych sound perfectly and build a bridge between the older music and still sounds refreshing. This is the best Heavy psych band at the moment. The album is produces by Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple, Mainliner) wich is a perfect fit.

Gorgeous from start to finish. Tune in for some next level psych and find them and more on ‘The Cosmic Side of Japan’. For more psych go to Fuzzy Sun’s list.
