I think by now everyone agrees that the four piece band Elder is a very versatile and talented band. They have released a lot of different heaviness, some of their music Heavy psych, stoner, psychedelic rock and it seems that we get something completely different yet again. After their previous, very psychedelic, “The Gold and Silver Sessions” it is time for their new album “Omens” wich will be out April 24.

The Australian heavy psych band Pseudo Mind Hive are back. Ther previous debut album “From Elsewhere” was a gorgeous start of a new psych band and on their new album “Of Seers & Sirens” they have perfected their sound.

On Forbidden Place Records you can Pre-Order the new debut album by Iowa band Melting Human Trash.
The trio that is called Meltin Human Trash brings us a mix of heavy fuzz, psychedelic elements, stoner and goddamn good and groovy riffs. This is a really good debut album and needs to be heard by the masses. (And possible one of the better album covers of 2019).
Some track are pure fuzz and riffs while others tend to be noisy with garagerock influences. Pretty cool debut by this band. Tune in and enjoy.
Mars Red Sky is one of those bands that has their very own sound. There are a lot of stoner and doombands and a lot of these sound all like each other.

How do i only just discovered this band? Good Lord, Khan is this heavy psych band with cosmic stoner vibes and they absolutely kill it on their new record. ‘Vale’ is their new album and is released September 6 on Salty Dog (the Australian label that hosts a lot of really good bands).

The Australian psych/space rockers Comacozer recently released a split on Riot Season Records with Blown Out and their previous album “KALOS EIDOS SKOPEO” was released August 2017. The band specializes in trippy cosmic space rock and they do it damn good. So a new album by this band is really good news. Their new album ‘Mydriasis’ was released July 27. With a fourth member on the synths their new music is even more trippy then before. If you are in search for some high quality space rock then this is what you need.
Riffs, chaos, yelling, strange irritating noises, feedback, weird instruments, migraine inducing screeching, weirdness, thunderous drums, shattering bass, grunts and solos. All this fun stuff can be found on a Heavy Dump.
This band from Tampa absolutely rules the riffs on their new album ‘Culero’. Absolutely brutal heaviness. ‘Culero’ was released August second.
The self titled album by these Peruvian rockers was first released in 2003 and has immense energy and still sounds fresh. This is the first time the album will be available on vinyl. The album is released through the great Necio Records.
Buyt this nice vinyl on their bandcamp and enjoy some fuzz.
From the moment I heard the the track ‘Strong Reflection’ a couple years back i knew i was hooked on this fuzzed stoner band. A lot of stoner bands sound the same and it is great to have a band loke Mars Red Sky with their unique sound and exceptional vocals.
Their new album ‘The Task Eternal’ will be released September 27 but we can check out a couple of tracks in the meantime. And it seems we can expect that same quality fuzzed out sound again. Turn loud and enjoy these sounds.
This Norway heavy fuzz band has three members. Mads Melvold, Ole Sletner and Adam Suleiman from Saint Karloff and their music is made of godly riffs. The groove and fuzz on their new track is just immense.
The Boston 4-piece Elder are known for their crushing sound and always excellent releases. Following their 2017 album ‘ Reflections of a Floating World‘ we get the new album ‘The Gold & Silver Sessions’.
‘The Gold & Silver Sessions’ will be released July 12 through Blues Funeral Recordings.
This time Elder is back with a new refreshing a sound. A very psychedelic sound. The three tracks are psychedelia at its best, easy going and dreamy but with enough heavy psych riffs and bursts of energy to make every rocker on the planet happy.
Loud, Slow and Distorted Riffs is the Mexican label that focuses on doom, stoner and well riffs and stuff ofcourse.

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.
The French stoner rock band Wizard Must Die released their new album “In The Land of the Dead Turtles” and it is an absolutely great. Wizard Must Die create this desert stoner sound with a lot of psychedelic rock mixed through it.
Every track is a new discovery of great tunes. A great find!
Japan is filled with absolutely magnificent psychedelic/garage/noise rock bands. Bands that are long since disbanded and bands that are brand new. A lot of this awesome music is lost to us and in this post I will try to share as much of these bands I can that fit Fuzzy Sun. With help from friends and sources I will update this list now and then. Tune in and listen to the Cosmic Side of Japan.
The trio started in 2007 as a heavy psych band and has grown a lot in their sound since then. Their name comes from the the mythological giant Daidarabotchi.
The new album “Threshold” is released December 1 on Gurugurbrain!
the “NO WATER” debut EP was released in January 27, 2017.
Dhidalah released “Moon People” on April 8, 2018. A very psychedelic improvistation.
Most of you will have heard of these psychedelic veterans, or under one of their other bandnames like Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O, Acid Maso Temple, Acid Mothers Afrirampo, Acid Mothers Gong, AcidMothersGuruGuru, … .
Acid Mothers was formed somewhere about 1995 and has released a massive amount of music, album, and live stuff.
The frontman kawabata Makoto has a lot of side projects and others bands, some of them you will find here.
The Tokyo based psych band started out as a free street act in 2012.

The psychedelic/noise/folk formation Les Rallizes Dénudés (Hadaka no Rallizes) are a Japanese band formed by frontman Takashi Mizutani in the late ’60s. You can find a lot of info/rumours and speculations about Les Rallizes Dénudés on the Internet. Most of their music are bootlegs, live recordings and other low quality stuff. They have never officialy released an album. Some say Mizutani was dissatisfied with the studio sound, thus never recording something official. Listen to some youtube music from Les Rallizes Dénudés.
Sundays and Cybele
The four piece psych band formed in Hokkaido, Japan in 2004. They have recently released their fourth studio album on the Gurgurubrain label called “On The Grass”.
Another Heavy Psych/noiserock band. High Rise was formed in 1982 by bassist Asahito Nanjo and guitarist Munehiro Narita. Originally called Psychedelic Speed Freaks but they changed their name advised by PSF records.
someone said Space Streakings is Hyper-Disco Grindcore (sporting an industrial-sized dollop of alien hip hop, and a healthy dose of “WTF?”). I can’t really argue with that. The band was made from members Captain Insect, Karate Condor, Kame Bazooka, Screaming Stomach and Kashikari Rental Rocket. I Think.
Here is a relativly normal band in difference with space streakings. Nishinihon was made from Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple etc.) and is gorgeous heavy psych filled with trippy guitar work and excellent psychedelic vibes. Other members where Tsuyama Atsushi, Ichiraku Yoshimitsu and Okano Futoshi.
Ohkami No Jikan
Made of Nanjo Asahito , Emi Nobuko, Kawabata Makoto , Miura Maki, Hibari Nagao and Asai. This band was also known as “The Seventh Seal”.
Made of Fukuoka Rinji, Nishino Kouji, Yamazaki Iwao.
Sarry makes Japanese vocal noise drone. well, whatever that is. have a listen.
A very weird Japanese Fusion band that blends, jazz, noiserock, psych and other weird things.
Maybe you guessed it, maybe not because what the hell is all this, but Sax Ruins is a newer version of Ruins. Instead of the bass player on Ruins we get the alto sax player Ono Ryoko. Their only release is on Ipecac Recordings.
A Japan-US collaboration with members KK Null, Jim O’Rourke, Darin Grey and Thymme Jones. Their self titles was released 94 on Skin Graft Rcords.
The Noise Birds
The Noise Birds are combination of two bands. They are made of 水晶の舟 Suishou No Fune (Japan, Pirako & Kageo) and Numinous Eye (USA, Mason Jones & Mike Shoun) and have one release in the past and now they are back with a new one on Riot Season Records.
The Swedisch heavy psych/doom trio are at it again. They released their new album “Floods” today and its a tornado of heaviness. Domkraft produces heavy slow doom riffs with great vocals. Let yourself be crushed by the force that is Domkraft.
Mojo Bozo’s Electric Circus are Ryan and Shane Walsh joined by Jeremy Hayes. The Annapolis heavy rock band puts a lot of different influences in their music. They switch easily between catchy tunes to stoner rock and classic rock creating a feel good vibe on the while album. Check out this small interview and buy their debut album “Electric Circus”.
Fuzzy Sun: For a three man band, there are a lot of different styles in your band, what are your influences?
Ryan: Tarantino soundtracks, Dick Dale, 70’s prog rock
Jeremy: Ryan pretty much hit the nail on the head with those. Personally, as a bass player I’m a huge fan of Robert DeLeo from STP.
Fuzzy Sun: The debut album is out today, as a first album, was it a difficult process?
Ryan: The process came together easy being a 3 piece and having Jeremy’s technical side to record us.
Jeremy: All of us have been in 4 and even 5 piece bands, so slimming down to 3 has been a breath of fresh air. Much easier to co-ordinate, write, and stay on the same page. We do all of our own recording in my home studio, that also makes things more efficient on many levels.
Fuzzy Sun: If you would have your own festival, who would you be playing with?
Ryan & Jeremy: Medusa’s Disco, Ancient Radiations, Mean Sea, Leo & Cygnus, Teen Mortgage, King Gizzard, Mastodon, Guantanamo Baywatch!
Fuzzy Sun: In a fight to the death, who of you three would win?
Ryan: Jeremy eats the healthiest and would have better cardio, haha.
Jeremy: I mean, the first time I “officially” met and hung out with Ryan (at a Living End show in Baltimore), he had a black eye. So clearly he’s pretty scrappy — I might put my money on him, lol.

“King of Cowards” is out today and the review for their new album by the UK rockers is quite easy. This record is extremely awesome and loud and should be played in all public spaces from now on. Out on the awesome Rocket Recordings.
Play extremely loud so your neighbors can enjoy it too.
Some albums are just addictive and the new one by All Them Witches is as addictive as they come. The first two tracks “Fishbelly 86 Onions” and “Diamond” where just constantly on repeat. On the track “Diamond” the nashville quartet All Them Witches shows what a brilliant band they are, the track is brilliant from start to finish.
Now their new album “ATW” is out. Eight bluesy psych/stoner tracks of absolute beauty. This album is definitly in my top albums of this year.
“Diamond” remains my favorite track. Listen closely to this soul healing album called “ATW” and tune in Fuzzy Sun’s psych list for more.
After their brilliant last album “Sleeping through War” All Them Witches are back with a new album. “ATW” will be released September 28 and in the meantime we can listen to two already released tracks. Check out “Fishbelly 86 Onions” and “Diamond”. Check out more music on Fuzzy Sun’s spotify.
