Artworks Part I

This is my site and I can do what I please so I am doing something else for a change so all you noiserock and psych fans will have to calm down and just watch this new post. So one of my favourite places on the web (next to Fuzzy Sun ofcourse) is booooooom, a website filled with great pieces of graphic design, paintings, artworks, photographs and stuff like that and I have been checking it out for a long time and on that site I got to know some absolutely stunning artist. My favourite one being Guim Tio who makes the most amazing paintings. Be sure to check him out.

Another one I got to know on the great place that is the internet is called Owen D. Pomery who is an architect and artist that makes drawings of places that speak to the imagination and are each time places I dream of living in. You can buy some of his prints here. I always feel drawn to his work, it has a dreamlike atmosphere for me and I think I watched it so much that it seeps in to my dreams. The four works below are from his concept series, you can find a lot more works and different series on his website.

I don’t know if this post is the start of some new series on this site or if I just wanted to do something else only once. We will see. But there is actually so much to find out about all these artist, like all the amazing albumart from noiserockcovers and who is behind it for example. Or just older, more obscure artworks, all those 60/70s psychedelic posters, who knows, maybe next time I will go more in that direction. Now most of you know this site specializes in noiserock and psychedelic rock so on all the social media stuff I got to know some people with the same interests but who also make artworks so I want to share some of the artists on here who I really like.

First is Megan Umpleby aka Sludgework, a graphic designer who makes these gothic black/white drawings with pen and ink and you can just see in all these detailed artwork how passionate she is about it. She workes with a lot of bands and people connected to music. Here style has this raw punk vibe but still with some humor in it. Now, I got in contact with Miss Umpleby and she offered me a personalized drawing! You can imagine how happy I was about this, The picture I got is the one as a header image for this post and I copied it again just below.

Next up is Win Wallace, an artist that lives in Austin, Texas that makes the most gorgeous artworks. Win Wallace himself has played in bands and made a lot of flyers for pun and noiserock shows. His work is shown across the United States and internationally. He himself plays in the noiserock band Suckling. I came across him through bands like Light Screamer and The Kronk Men and now I am addicted to his work. – check out his instagram page.

Going in the same direction is the Australian artist Erol Zendis who makes music related artwork in a demon/demented style reminiscent of 90’s cartoons. We share a bit of the same music as we can see artworks for Thee Oh Sees, Slift and other heaviness. Erol also makes artwork for Skateboards.

Now I am really on a roll and I seem to have difficulty to stop. I really need to share with you the artwork on the Eiderdown Records Label, a label that specializes in music that is very far out, psychedelic and folky. I got to know them through the psychedlic folk artist Prana Crafter who makes the most beautiful music. The artwork that intriguies me most is are the ones done by Max Clotfelter. Check out his instagram too.

Next up is Luke Oram who makes mostly scifi/fantasy inspired artworks that have an epic feel to it. Here and there I got som Moebius vibes too (wich is one of my favourite artsist). Luke has a lot of works and makes a lot of them for bands too, bands like Dead Otter, Wallowing, Slugdge and more. Be sure to check out his website, instagram and stuff.

Prana Crafter release ‘Rebirth in the Mossland’

Prana Crafter (William Sol) has been featured a lot on Fuzzy Sun and this is an artist that truly creates magical music. In all of his works (some more ambient, other pure psych) you can hear him channeling nature and there is always this peacefull atmosphere in his music, most of the time it feels like a trance. Now Prana Crafter returns with an EP called ‘MorphoMystic’ wich is released on Cardinal Fuzz. This may be Prana Crafter his most peaceful music yet, the EP is soothing and trippy. I also added my favourite album of him, 2017 ‘Enter the Stream’ for those of you who do not know his music.

Prana Crafter/Ragenap

Been a Prana Crafter for a while now, especially since his album “Enter The Stream” that was released in 2018. The track with the same name brings me joy to this day still. So now he is back with a split with Ragenap. This split was originally released in November of 2019 as a limited run of 60 cassettes on Baked Tapes and we can check it out digital now.
These two tracks combine perfectly on this split, The godly psychfolk of Prana Crafter and the mysterious drone/psych of Ragenap make this highly hypnotic and need to be heard.
“No Ear To Hear” will be out April 10.

Prana Crafter & Tarotplane release ‘Symbiose’

Prana Crafter (William Sol) has been a couple of times on Fuzzy Sun. His cosmic music is captivating and always new and refreshing. His Album ‘Enter The Stream’ was one of my favorites. Tarotplane (PJ Dorsey) has been releasing music on different European labels too, his latest was a contribution on the Hypnic Jerk Label for Splixtape.

Both of these artist have created a cosmic journey that captivates you from the moment you press play. The music feels like it comes from the far reaches of the universe to land in a mythical forest where its been played by little forest creatures.

A gorgeous meditative listen!

Out on beyond Beyond is Beyond August 16.

NANI∞GURU

For me it is clear that Riot Season Records is going for the win. They release psych and noiserock of the greatest quality and they do not slow down and they do not deviate from their path. This time a release by NANI∞GURU wich is Kawabata Makoto & Satoshima Nani. This release that will be sold only on tape and is seems that it is already sold out.

Tune in for psychedelic bliss by these cosmic masters.

Splixtape: a compilation featuring Prana Crafter, Ragenap, Tarrotplane and Horse Apples

Hypnic Jerk Tapes is a pretty new tapelabel and it caught my attention through Prana Crafter who released his gorgeous album “Enter The Stream” last year. Wich ended on my best of list of 2018 too.

The tape starts with two tracks of Prana Crafter too, the two tracks channel nature and psych on a magnificent level. Prana Crafter never disappoints.

The other three bands i am not familiar with, so it’s great to get to know new musicians. Ragenap delivers a very nice 13 minute track with mellow guitar tunes ending in ambient wildness.

Tarrotplane and Horse Apples go for 13 minutes of cosmic sounds. This is a great day, today i learned about a new label and 3 new artists that bring the cosmic sound closer to home.

check them out.

Prana Crafter’s Bodhi Cheetah’s Choice

The complete album has such a truly beautifull atmosphere .It feels like meditation, you can feel the nature and beauty pouring out. The ambience now and then alternating with thescreeching psychedelic guitar. Prana Crafter made this with passion.
