Igorrr release “Spirituality and Distortion”

You might say that Igorrr does not fit at all on Fuzzy Sun and you are probably right but honestly, I love Igorrr with their crazy over the top weirdness. When I heard them first with their 2012 album “Hallelujah” and I was so happy I discovered this french weirdos. They mix up their metal with al kinds of strange stuff, from breakcore to baroque-like music. Ok, honestly, some tracks are a bit too gothic for me but sometimes they are just absolutely fun to listen too. Their video of “Very Noise” might as well be the best music video I have seen in years too. Now decide for yourself if classical baroque, breakcore, gothic and death metal belong together in one song. Enjoy “Spirituality and Distortion”.

Hypochristmutreefuzz returns with new track “Ode to Night”

It seems we have ourselfs the best Belgian week ever. With new music from The K., Skiska Skooper and Crowd of Chairs and now new music by Ghentian weirdos Hypochristmutreefuzz. Their previous album (wich is pretty awesome) was called “Hypopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia” and dates back from January 2017.

Hypochristmutreefuzz is a band that is full of originality, weirdness and heaviness and they show that strenght again on their new track “Ode To Night”. The track is a bit of a mashup of genres (like with most of their music) and gives you an unique listening experience. This track feel dominantly experimental and industrial but with a catchy side to it. “Ode To Night” is taken from their upcoming album “Hypnos”.

This band always delivers something special, something unique and with their new music they do it again. Impossible to categorize them wich makes them so much better.

Listen for yourself, here are the Ghentians Hypochristmutreefuzz.

Elefant released “Bejahung” on 9000 Records

Beloved Ghentian (Belgium) weirdo band Elefant released their new album “Bejahung” today on 9000 records. Their previous album was called “Konard and Bonark” and was a bit of a mishmash of different styles but mostly rock with experimental synth stuff that I very much enjoyed.

But on “Bejahung” I have the feeling the band has grown a bit. It is already clear for me on the first track “Ultra Plus Ultra” that they made a track that is more easy to listen to, catchy and it still has very heavy riffs. Like every album I love it when I can hear some weirdness or experimental stuff in it so i’m glad when the second song “Rechtschreibe” starts whith some weird synthy  sounds, yet you can recognize the sound of “Bejahung” in it, the riffs turn back and the vocals and drumming make sure they stay on the same sonic line. “Eazy” starts like Moon Duo, Oh Sees and Beak got in a fight and although the song is softer (and weirder) it still has the same dreamy trippy vibe, the vocals on this track give it an extra kick too. Probably going to grow on me and become my favourite. “Water Always Flows” is one of the recently released single and got that typical elefant sound but a bit more tender (again weird though). “Stilleben” is experimental eerie doomlike synthrock track and is a very nice track if you are depressed and want to look outside the window complaining you don’t have any friends. “Welcome to Life Sonny” is riffless and a bit soulless for me.

“Bejahung” is difficult, it is a bit of every song on the album thrown together with a bit of oriental vibes in it because why not. “The Dooor” is a slowed down synthpunk track with great basslines wich makes me move my head (wich is extremely difficult). “3-3-3” is very experimental and strange and I will need to hear it a couple times more. “A conversation in a room” is an eerie outro track and the album ends with  “My Race Race Is Better Than Your Race” wich is pretty damn cool track, it sounds like it is made in 2084 and the robot overlords are ready to take over.

“Bejahung” is a great album but it is a difficult one. The first six tracks are easier to listen to then the last 5, these are quite challenging. This album is for music fanatics, people who like to take their time to listen to an album and listen to it more then once.

Tune in, set back and enjoy, it is Elefant, it is out today, buy it here.

Elefant to release “Bejahung” this friday. Tune in for the new track/video

Their previous album “Konark Und Bonark” was a nice piece of work with a track called “Lord Sleep” wich I still play a lot. A while ago they released a new track called “Water Always Flows Down” wich showed that the band has a more normal side too. The track is a lot chiller then most of their material.

Their new track and video “Ultra Plus Ultra” is again more catchy then what we are used to but has a heavy kick to it. Tune in for “Ultra Plus Ultra” from their album “Bejahung” wich will be released this friday 24 January on 9000 Records (consouling Sounds).

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.

I added OOIOO to “The Cosmic Side of Japan”

Elefant return with new single “Water Always Flows Down”

Back in November the Belgian band Elefant released their first full LP “Konark Und Bonark” wich ended up on my end of the year list. The sound of Elefent is very difficult to put in a box, it seems they just do whatever they want and the result is quite refreshing. On their latest album you can sense that the band jumps between heavy in your face rock to weird electronic stuff, then jumbles it all together in something of a sonic goo.

Their new track is called “Water Always Flows Down” and is a more modest version of Elefant, it seems they show their sensitive side for a change. the track is taken from their upcomign album “Bejahung”.
