    The Myrrors

    Fuzz Club Session

      The Myrrors are a mythical force in contemporary psychedelia and one of our favourite bands over here at Fuzz Club HQ. That's why when they came over to the UK a few months back we dragged them along to The Pool Studio in London to lay down a Fuzz Club Session. The Arizona band's Fuzz Club Session is comprised of three utterly bewitching tracks that invoke images of the sandy plains of the Sonoran desert which they call home, yet also draped in an influence of traditional Eastern psychedelia. Complete with the band's signature meandering violins, droning vocals and sprawling instrumentation, the live recording of the Fuzz Club Session allows the tracks to take on an even more hypnotic form. The session is comprised of one track from their 2015 opus Arena Negra ('Juanito Laguna...'), one from a special 45 released back in 2016 ('Semillas Sembradas') and a cut from their forthcoming album to be released later this year ('Note From The Underground'). 

      Crimen

      Silent Animals

        https://soundcloud.com/fuzz-club/sets/crimen-silent-animal/s-qMhVA As with all Fuzz Club titles this is for Indie stores only. Available on 180g coloured vinyl and gatefold cover. Ltd to 300 copies. Silent Animals may be the debut album from Italian trio Crimen, but it arrives over a decade into their career. Simone Greco (bass, voice, sound engineering) and Patrizio Strippoli (guitars, voice) formed the band in the Centocelle district of Rome in 2007, before recruiting Giuseppe Trezza (drums and electronics) six years later. After a string of successful EPs and two years hibernating to record the opus, the band feel now is the time to release a full length.

        A heady cocktail of krautrock, psychedelia, noise rock and post-punk, Silent Animals takes us on a whistle-stop tour of Europe’s musical history with a newfound stomp and malignancy. Conceived in their own DIY studio in Rome, the Flamingo Recording Studio, the band has self-produced and engineered their debut in a state of total creative independence. The group says of their long-awaited debut: "Silent Animals talks about emotive fragility and wasted loves. It sounds nocturnal and psychotic, though essentially it's a work about love and the exorcism of fear and anxiety". An exorcism it certainly is, full of gnostic grooves and cathartic releases. The most forthright example of this is the first single from the album, ‘Six Weeks'. It’s hard rocker cloaked in reverb, feedback and throbbing electronics - sounding downright satanic as Simone bellows “six-six-six” as the song constantly veers on the verge of sub-atomic explosion. 

        Lumerians

        Call Of The Void

          CA outfit Lumerians are a prodigious force in the extra-terrestrial realms of modern psychedelia. Since forming in San Francisco back in 2006, Lumerians have traversed their way through multiple different genres - offering mind-bending adventures into everything from space rock, kraut and noise to zamrock, free jazz, drone and dub. Drawing from a range of influences, both familiar and esoteric, past and present, Lumerians conjure up sounds from far into the future. In their twelve years as a band they’ve toured with everyone from My Bloody Valentine to Killing Joke and Black Moth Super Rainbow, putting out a number of critically-acclaimed releases including two ‘official’ albums and two collections of improvised compositions called Transmission from Tellos III & IV.

          Call Of The Void is dedicated to the memory of Barrett Clark, Lumerians’ long-time friend, sound engineer and collaborator who passed away in the tragic Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland 2016. It may have taken the band four long years to put their latest album together but it was definitely worth the wait, their mystical exploratory soundscapes at their finest. Eclectic and vastly multifaceted, the album is further proof - if you needed it - that Lumerians are a singular force in contemporary psychedelia. Talking about Call of the Void, vocalist Jason Miller explains: “If ‘Transmalinnia’ represented the exploration of an alien world and ‘The High Frontier’ a voyage through space, ‘Call of the Void’ is a penetrative exploration of Earth through an alien gaze gone native - the weight of gravity, the build-up of pollution and sediment, experiences of ecstatic revelry and tragedy.” 

          You Said Strange

          Salvation Prayer

            Available on 180g vinyl. You Said Strange come from the north-western region of Normandy in France, although if it was up to them they’d come from the States, somewhere between Texas and Cali. They’ve been growing their own Norman-spiced-up definition of psychedelia for a few years now, making their way on a historically busy road. Having just signed to Fuzz Club, You Said Strange are gearing up for the release of their debut full length, Salvation Prayer.

            The album was recorded in Portland, USA with Peter Holmström of The Dandy Warhols after both bands toured together back in 2015. Salvation Prayer is a condensation of heady riffs, haunting melodies and bright rhythms, half-way between 90s shoegaze and 60s psychedelia. The album touches on the theme of belief, the kind that affects even the most Cartesian spirit; may it be superficial, spiritual, superstitious, religious or moral. This very-human interpretation of reality is meant to help those who seek to free themselves, dream or flee, and that’s what the band is all about. 

            Routine Death

            Parallel Universes

              Separated by 7000 miles, Routine Death is the husband and wife duo of Lisa (Gothenburg) and Dustin Zozaya (Austin), the latter also playing in Fuzz Club favourites Holy Wave. The duo will be releasing their debut album, Parallel Universes in June, offering the perfect introduction to the dark, lo-fi pop world - channelling an ethereal darkwave sound with bewitching lo-fi vocals and the glitchy electronics of Broadcast, or even Stereolab. Born out of this distance is a certain kind of intimacy, the use of cheap equipment and a creative process that involves constantly sending tracks forwards and backwards over the internet results in a minimalist noise-pop sound that shuns the overbearing sonic-excess that most new shoegaze bands fall victim to, instead stripping things down to the absolute fundamentals. Lisa’s sublimely entrancing vocals float over repetitive midi drumbeats (made using an app on Dustin’s phone), glitched-out loops, droning organs and fuzzy lo-fi guitars. 

              RF Shannon

              Trickster Blues

                RF Shannon takes a drastic shift from the long form, pensive desert meditations of their previous record. “The process was a drastic shift from the one we took with ‘Jaguar Palace’ and I was hooked. It was a blast all of the time. We kept a quick pace due to external circumstances via random or otherwise inevitable interruptions, so we learned to take what we could get. If a take was good, it was a keeper, we didn’t second guess it. In just four days we had demoed the majority of my new material and it just felt so right.’’ explains Shane Renfro, the mind behind RF Shannon.

                The final product of the seize the moment approach behind the writing and recording process echoes the themes Trickster Blues attempts to dissect. “The lyrics are about acknowledging consequences and saying "so what", the reward is worth the risk, etc. It's about feeling a pull, a calling, and dedicating to it hell or high water, whatever that may be. Its the heart of it all.’’ Renfro continues. To be able to listen and say “That’s it, that's the song. It is what it is, and we like what it is” Sounds a little underwhelming in that sense, but that's what I wanted. I just wanted the songs to speak for themselves. Our old material is challenging and dense, and I love it. I love the spaces we have created. But I wanted to record songs that could just stand alone and be what they are.''

                Nest Egg

                Nothingness Is Not A Curse

                  As with all Fuzz Cub albums these are Indies only. Available on 180gm vinyl. Nest Egg are a three-piece from North Carolina who describe their heady and motorik psych-rock wig-outs as ‘mood music for nihilists’. Formed back in 2011, the band have built up a formidable reputation in the US live circuit, playing with everyone who’s anyone - from garage juggernauts Thee Oh Sees to space-rock innovators Loop. Following a handful of tapes and singles, in 2015 the band released their debut album ‘Respectable’. Three years later and they’ve joined forces with London-label Fuzz Club Records for the release of their sophomore album ‘Nothingness Is Not A Curse’, a record that’s been in the works since the summer 2016. In a similar ballpark to the likes of Moon Duo or Follakzoid, the new record see’s Nest Egg free-fall, arms flailing, down an all-consuming rabbit-hole of cosmic repetition, tripped-out drones, swirling analogue synths and cacophonous guitars; the driving krautrock gusto never letting loose for a second. 

                  Sherpa The Tiger

                  Great Vowel Shift

                    Sherpa The Tiger are a brand-new band hailing from Lviv, Ukraine. With an arsenal of cheap, decrepit Soviet synthesisers, the four-piece combine a love of minimalist ambient music and the kosmische grooves that came pumping out of Eastern Europe in the 60s/70s. There are two sides to Sherpa The Tiger, there are the danceable groove-ridden cuts that channel the funkier repetitions of CAN's Future Days LP, held together and propelled by a jagged drumbeat that Jaki Liebezeit would surely be proud of. And then there are the more stripped-back moments, which see cosmic, ambient deconstructions that could easily have found themselves on the score of some kind of 80s crime-thriller set against the neon-lit backdrop of Miami. 

                    The Third Sound

                    All Tomorrow's Shadows

                      The Third Sound is the solo project of Icelandic singer-songwriter Hákon Aðalsteinsson, formerly of Singapore Sling and currently touring in Brian Jonestown Massacre. Now residing in Berlin with a fleshed-out live line-up, The Third Sound are gearing up for the release of their fourth album ‘All Tomorrow’s Shadows’ - arriving via Fuzz Club Records on May 11th. Recorded by the band themselves over the harsh Berlin winter, the new record is their most refined yet – offering an expansive exploration into krautrock-tainted post-punk and dark psychedelia. Following on from their 2016 LP ‘Gospels of Degeneration’, the new album takes a much more sparse and rhythmic approach than we’ve seen before, combining hypnotic guitar drones, motorik rhythms and haunting vocals – the last track boasting a guest feature from Anton Newcombe, who released the band’s debut album on his own imprint A Recordings

                      Medistation

                      Medistation EP

                        Medistation is a brand new alt-rock/noise pop project from The Orange Revival’s Eric Strand. Rumbling out of Stockholm on a cloud of feedback and reverb, the debut recordings from the project - a self-titled five-track 12" EP. On the EP, Medistation sound like the best band that Creation never signed – channelling the sluggish razor-sharp guitars and commanding vocals of the Mary Chain with glimmers of ethereal noise-pop that falls somewhere between the gospel-psychedelia of Spiritualized and Primal Scream before Gillespie discovered acid-house and amphetamines at the turn of the nineties. Guest appearances by Jake Garcia ( The Black Angels / The Ripe) and Cobian Modeste (The Buttertones). 

                        Tales Of Murder And Dust

                        Fuzz Club Session

                          As with all Fuzz Cub albums these are Indies only. Available on 180gm vinyl. Back in 2016, London label Fuzz Club launched its Fuzz Club Sessions series, the aim being to bring some of the best in underground music to various London studios to lay down a live session recorded straight to 2” tape in one take and released on vinyl. A couple of years on and the sessions have dealt in raw, surfy garage (see Night Beaters, Heaters and Holy Wave), improvised psych-blues jams (see The Entrance Band), solemn post-punk (see The Underground Youth) and industrial post-punk/kraut (see 10 000 Russos and RMFTM). Now it’s the turn of Danish mavericks, and long-time label alumni, Tales Of Murder And Dust. Comprised of two cuts from 2016s The Flow In Between LP, one from their debut album Hallucination Of Beauty and a brand new track, on the session TOMAD offer a world of gloomy, cinematic post-rock – taking cues from everything from opiate blues and drone-rock through to goth and New York No Wave. Bleak, atmospheric and utterly bewitching, there’s not many bands who would be able to sound quite as mesmerisng and grandiose when captured live - making this one of the finest Fuzz Club Sessions to date and an absolute must for fans of the dark and experimental. 

                          Various Artists

                          The Reverb Conspiracy Volume 5

                            Likened to a modern-day Nuggets series and hailed by The Vinyl Factory as “a time-capsule-like documentation of modern psych”, the previous four volumes of The Reverb Conspiracy have included the likes of GOAT, Anton Newcombe, The KVB, Dead Skeletons, Josefin Ohrn & The Liberation and Ulrika Spacek to name a few. Be it psych, garage-rock, post-punk, shoegaze, krautrock or just straight up rock’n’roll, whatever your shtick underground music has never been better than it is right now. The aim of these annual Reverb Conspiracy compilations has been an attempt to try and document the ridiculously good music out there at the minute. Joining a number of Fuzz Club artists – including 10,000 Russos, The Gluts and JuJu - will be physical exclusives from TRAAMS and their biting motorik post-punk, cult Italian psych-rockers Julie’s Haircut and the harrowing psychedelic snarl of Portsmouth upstarts Melt Dunes and many, many more.

                            Black Lizard

                            Celebration Of A New Dawn

                              Since forming back in 2008, Finnish garage-rockers Black Lizard have been busy leading the charge in the ever-fruitful Scandinavian underground with their relentless gig schedule and a constant stream of releases. They’ve collaborated with the likes of Anton Newcombe and Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3/Spectrum) and toured Europe several times, appearing at a number of festivals including Great Escape as well as sharing the stage with everyone from Brian Jonestown Massacre, DIIV, The Men, The Horrors, Allah-Las and Veronica Falls.

                              On February 23rd Black Lizard will be releasing their third album, Celebration Of A New Dawn, on London imprint Fuzz Club Records. Recorded in the basement of a rundown 50s movie theatre turned recording studio, the new album is a sublime excursion into Sixties-indebted, washed-out garage-pop. ‘Celebration Of…’ is Black Lizards best album yet; bright, vivid and lysergic, the record manages to be unapologetically nostalgic yet carve out its own glorious, introspective pastiche - repackaging the Nuggets-esque garage/psych-pop and early-90s shoegaze swoons for 21st-century wastoids. 

                              The Oscillation

                              U.E.F

                                The Oscillation is one of the many aliases of Demian Castellanos, an almost-mythical force in the London underground. Since 2006, under the guise of The Oscillation, Demian has released four LPs, countless EPs/singles and played with everyone from Silver Apples and Beak to Wooden Shjips and Deerhunter, all the while being emulated by the likes of The Guardian, Mojo, The Quietus, Vice, Q, Pitchfork and 6 Music. Following on from the disillusioned, cosmic psych-punk of 2016's 'Monographic' LP and the 2017 single ‘Evil In the Tree’, The Oscillation is gearing up for the release of his fifth album, U.E.F, on March 2nd via Fuzz Club Records.

                                The new album sees Demian completely subvert his sound once-again, adding a new evolution to his ever-evolving musical canon. Ditching any inkling of his ‘rock’ beginnings for a lysergic (but equally sinister) journey into post-apocalyptic electronics and sprawling drones – resulting in something that’s more likely to be bouncing around the walls of club nights than the back-room venue of grotty bars. U.E.F is comprised of two 20-minute slabs of unforgiving, dystopian electronica - complete with ambient electronics, droning analogue synths, monolithic percussion and a hypnotic kraut gusto. This is kosmische musik for the new age; a fitting soundtrack to the forthcoming techno-apocalypse, when artificial intelligence takes over and we're all subjected to the way of the machine. 

                                Dreamweapon

                                SOL

                                  Portugal’s dreamweapon take their name from the 1990 Spacemen 3 live album ‘Dreamweapon: An Evening of Contemporary Sitar Music’, who themselves took inspiration from the work of minimalist drone - or ‘Dream Music’ - visionary La Monte Young and a 1965 multimedia piece titled ‘Rites of The Dreamweapon’ by original The Velvet Underground drummer Angus MacLise. Fast-forward to 2018 and dreamweapon, the band, are continuing to keep the torch burning. Made up of 10,000 Russos bassist Andre Couto, João Campos Costa and Edgar Moreira, dreamweapon emerged in 2009 and have since gone on to release one EP, their debut S/T album and a handful of singles, whilst taking their immersive and unremitting live show around Europe.

                                  Made up of four improvised compositions recorded in one take at their Porto practice space, on February 16th dreamweapon will be releasing their sophomore LP ‘SOL’. On the album, whirrs of feedback and noise coalesce around droning, oscillating synths, samples and subtle cascading guitars, the only thing keeping the sparse soundscapes together being the incessant Krautrock rhythm with a seemingly endless motorik bassline that forces it’s way right to the back of your unconscious and the almost proto-punk minimalism of those programmed drum machines. 

                                  Dead Vibrations

                                  Dead Vibrations

                                    Dead Vibrations burst onto the booming Stockholm music scene in 2015 and have been flying the flag high for Scandinavian shoegaze ever since. Their dark and gloomy noise pop channelling a mix of visceral Mary Chain-esque guitars, droning psychedelia a la Spacemen 3 and even Seattle grunge at times – resulting in a reverb-drenched sound that manages to sound both unapologetically indebted to its influences yet completely modern. Having spent the last couple of years touring Europe, Dead Vibrations have signed to Fuzz Club for the release of their self-titled debut album, due for release January 26th. With crushing fuzzed-out guitars, swirls of feedback, thundering drums and angst-ridden vocals, the record is a masterclass in dark, brooding shoegaze. For such a new band, Dead Vibrations have wasted no time making their mark and their debut album is sure to send them to even further heights. 

                                    Singapore Sling

                                    Kill Kill (Songs About Nothing) Deluxe Version

                                      Deluxe version is now available to stores, the standard pressing is now sold out.. Iceland’s Singapore Sling formed in 2000 and are highly lauded as one of the innovators of experimental psychedelia and rock and roll as we currently know it. Their ninth full-length ‘Kill Kill Kill (Songs About Nothing)’ came out in Feb 2017. The LP is a haunting and claustrophobic affair, drifting from the sleazy rock’n’roll splendour of previous releases for a more discordant and experimental pastiche. Unremitting, scuzzy bass-lines roil deep into your conscious, snarling beneath the echoing, atonal vocals of Henrik and the chugging, vapour-trail guitars - this is Singapore Sling at their most sinister, immersive and unforgiving. 

                                      Vacant Lots

                                      Departure

                                        Alan Vega protégés The Vacant Lots are a NYC-via-Vermont duo comprised of Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen. Their minimalist-yet-primitive rock’n’roll and sprawling psychedelic drones have seen them pick up international acclaim and go on to collaborate with an impressive roster of underground music royalty such as Vega, Anton Newcombe, Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3/Spectrum and Dean Wareham of Galaxie 500. Their 2014 debut ‘Departure’ (produced by Sonic Boom) was what kick-started it all and London imprint Fuzz Club are delighted to be reissuing the record, following a previous partnership with the band for a split 10” with Vega himself.

                                        On their debut, The Vacant Lots deliver a primal hit of darkly hypnotic rock’n’roll with a repetitive and utterly formidable proto-punk gusto - reflecting back on the album it’s pretty easy to see why the duo went on to become so revered. Fuzz Club will be reissuing the album as a double LP and the D-side includes two amazing remixes from Alan Vega and Anton Newcombe. The standard edition (/500) comes on one side black and other white vinyl. All 180gr in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner-sleeves. 

                                        Pretty Lightning

                                        The Rhythm Of Ooze

                                          Christian Berghoff and Sebastian Haas are two lifelong friends from Saarbrucken, Germany who back in 2007 formed the band Pretty Lightning. The duo tick off a long list of influences – from 60s psych and delta blues through to krautrock and drone – and the end-product is a heady dose of raw, twisted psychedelic blues recalling an utterly visceral mix of Oh Sees, Wooden Shjips and early Black Keys. Fast forward ten years and the German two-piece have two highly-praised LPs behind them and are now gearing up for their third effort, 'The Rhythm Of Ooze' – due for release November 10th on Fuzz Club Records. Their latest long-player sees them dive even further down the rabbit-hole of stomping garage-rock blues and dizzying motoric drones. This is Pretty Lightning at their best - a head-heavy trip through their lysergic, rock'n'roll prowess. 

                                          Saccades

                                          Saccades

                                            "This is music that should be performed at the Roundhouse in Twin Peaks" - Post-Punk.com. Available on 180gm white vinyl. Nicholas Wood is a Berlin-based musician who’s best known for making up one-half of well-known synth/post-punk duoThe KVB. Following a break in The KVB’s busy touring schedule, Nick spent the last summer working on a solo album under the moniker ‘Saccades’ and Fuzz Club are delighted to have signed the project for its self-titled debut, officially released. These new tracks mark a distinct difference from Nick’s other musical endeavours, ditching the dark post-punk synths for a dive into wholesome and totally immersive psychedelic pop. 

                                            RMFTM

                                            Subversive III: Spelende De Mens

                                              Following their recent collab LP with Gnod, under the Temple ov BBV pseudonym, Eindhoven art-punk collective RMFTM (fka Radar Men From The Moon) have announced the third and final instalment in their ‘Subversive’ album trilogy - 'Subversive III: De Spelende Mens', due for release December 1st on Fuzz Club Records. Influenced by the ground-breaking sonic industrialism of Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire and Coil, as well the transcendent kinetic rhythms of Neu!, Faust and Amon Duul II, 'Subversive III: De Spelende Mens' see’s their industrial art-punk take on it’s most incessant, angular and free-flowing form in a frenzy of metallic drones, thunderous feedback stabs of synths and throbbing, repetitive krautrock rhythms that at times border on techno territory. With the Subversive series, RMFTM have sought to deconstruct and rebuild their creative process, pushing themselves to the limit with each and every release and ‘Spelende De Mens’, translated as ‘the playing man’, is the perfect way to conclude the series. 

                                              Helicon

                                              Helicon

                                                Including download card. Glasgow’s Helicon have been staples of the UK’s underground scene since they formed back in 2009 and from then they’ve gone on to release eight EPs and share the stage with everyone from the likes of Wooden Shjips, The Warlocks, Dead Skeletons and The Holydrug Couple. Picking up an ever-growing reputation along the way the band are now finally set to release their long-overdue self-titled debut LP on Fuzz Club – produced by Tony Doogan at Mogwai’s Castle Of Doom Studio. Exploring themes of love and loss, drugs and drink, religion and politics, and life and death, Helicon’s new album is a collection of sprawling and expansive Eastern-tained psych-rock. Psychedelia has always transcended geographical limits and with this in mind, the band explain how the new record aims to explore all psychedelic ley-lines across the globe - from their home-country Scotland to the sitar-led sounds of India whilst nodding equally to both vintage and modern psychedelic motifs. 

                                                Underground Youth

                                                Fuzz Club Session

                                                  Limited to 400 black vinyl. Berlin post-punks The Underground Youth have been Fuzz Club favourites since before the label was even born. During a tour in support of their eighth LP ‘What Kind Of Dystopian Hellhole Is This?’ Fuzz Club brought Craig Dyer and co. to Lovebuzz Studio in London to be the next addition to the Fuzz Club Sessions series. As with all Fuzz Club Sessions, the LP was recorded live in one take and straight to 2” tape, using only the finest analogue equipment and see’s their beautifully haunting psychedelic post-punk sound even rawer and impassioned than before. 

                                                  Vuelveteloca

                                                  Sonora

                                                    Vuelveteloca are a Chilean psych-rock outfit who formed over a decade ago in Santiago and since then have been busy picking up a notorious reputation amongst the ranks of fellow South American noiseniks Follakzoid and The Holydrug Couple for their incredible live show. In their lengthy career, the project has been comprised of a number of different members but has always revolved around the vastly creative minds of its two core members, Tomas Olivos and Marcos De Iruarrizaga.

                                                    With four LP’s now behind them, Vuelveteloca are teaming up with Fuzz Club Records for the release of their incredible fifth album, Sonora. The record is nine tracks of ferocious (8 tracks on vinyl with 9 downloadable tracks), rhythmic psychedelia that sounds like a relentlessly motorik mix of Black Sabbath’s doomy stoner rock and the kinetic psychedelic rhythms of modern bands like Kikagaku Moyo or King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

                                                    RMFTM

                                                    Fuzz Club Session

                                                      RMFTM are a Dutch music collective who’s motorik, industrial art-punk blurs the line between Can or Amon Duul II and the harsh, metronomic sounds of Detroit techno visionaries Jeff Mills or Carl Craig. Having just released a colab LP with Salford noiseniks Gnod and now two parts into their ‘Subversive’ album trilogy on Fuzz Club, the London label is excited to reveal the band’s mind-blowing ‘Fuzz Club Session’ LP. Made up of four near-on ten-minute tracks, RMFTM’s live session see’s their angular, incendiary noise sound more raw and merciless than ever before. It’s a head-on collision of programmed frequency, looped samples, metallic clanging and stabs of feedback held together and propelled by pummeling, motorik basslines, pounding percussion and a formidable krautrock gusto that seems to transcend space and time

                                                      New Candys

                                                      Bleeding Magenta

                                                        New Candys hails from Venice, Italy and formed back in 2008. After recently reissuing their highly-praised first two LPs ‘As Medicine’ and ‘Stars Reach The Abyss’, the four-piece are again teaming up with Fuzz Club for the release of their third album, ‘Bleeding Magentas’. Their latest effort is a seriously impressive collection of dark, swirling psych-rock – atmospheric yet overdriven, pacing but ethereal, brooding at times but always wallowing in a dazed pop sensibility, ‘Bleeding Magenta’ see’s New Candys’ songwriting at its best. After spending the last few years getting widespread praise across the board and sharing the stage with the likes of Slowdive, The Vaccines, Savages, Dead Skeletons anymore, it’s clear this new album is set to propel the band to dizzying new heights. 

                                                        Juju

                                                        Our Mother Was A Plant

                                                          JuJu is the brainchild of Sicilian multi-instrumentalist Gioele Valenti (Lay Llamas, Herself). Having now signed to Fuzz Club Records, the project is set to release the sophomore LP ‘Our Mother Was A Plant’ – the follow-up to 2016s S/T debut that was widely hailed as one of the most innovative psych albums of the year. Carrying on in its predecessor’s footsteps, the new LP is a continuation of JuJu’s ritualistic sonic exploration into the cultural implications of the current refugee crisis, humanities increasingly strained relationship with Mother Earth and neo-pagan mythology. Even more adventurous than the last, JuJu has changed the game for modern psychedelia once again. Calling it just a ‘psych’ record would be an injustice though, JuJu’s shamanic, lysergic mantras are influenced just as much by afrobeat, krautrock, glam, post-punk, art rock, drone and just about everything in between

                                                          Acid Baby Jesus

                                                          Lilac Days

                                                            Available on 180gm black vinyl. It’s easy to guess Acid Baby Jesus’ shtick just going on their name but to those who aren’t already in the know: don’t be fooled into thinking these are just another quasi-religious, LSD-loving psych-rock band - there’s a reason these Greek garage-rockers have been championed so highly in the European scene. Acid Baby Jesus are less concerned with the spiritual and tripped-out realms that their name foreshadows than they are with pure hip-shaking, rock’n’roll hedonism. After a long three-year wait the Athens four-piece are back with their third album ‘Lilac Days’ – their first on Fuzz Club Records. The LP sees ABJ at their best; their frenetic garage-rock distilling a hazy mix of 60s Western psychedelic pop, traditional Eastern folk and the scuzzy R'n'R sounds of The Stooges or Brian Jonestown Massacre

                                                            Underground Youth

                                                            Delirium

                                                              The album has been remastered for the repress and that the vinyl version comes with a die-cut cover. Delirium’ was the fifth LP from cult psych/post-punk outfit The Underground Youth, who formed in 2008 and are currently based in Berlin. Originally released in 2011 London-based imprint Fuzz Club are reflecting on the bands extensive back-catalogue and repressing the 12” with a brand new CD reissue. ’Delirium’ harks back to TheUnderground Youth’s earlier psychedelic sound, offering minimalistic and bluesy psychedelia at its best. The album is an unapologetic ode to Craig’s musical heroes, dining on an influence from the likes of Spacemen 3, The Velvet Underground and BJM in its haunting psych instrumentals and beautifully crafted vocals and lyricism that fall somewhere between Bob Dylan and Ian Curtis. 

                                                              Holy Wave

                                                              Fuzz Club Session

                                                                As with all Fuzz Club releases this is for Indie Stores only worldwide. Available on 180gm black vinyl. Next up in the Fuzz Club Session series is Austin’s Holy Wave. Following the release of their 2016 LP ‘Freaks Of Nurture’ we invited the band to London to lay down a session. Despite still being steeped in a 60s Nuggets nostalgia the material on the session see’s HolyWave ditch the Seeds-esque garage for a more washed out, reverberating psych-pop sound. The warm analogue recording creating a blissed-out echo chamber of sun-soaked psychedelia – recorded straight to tape and committed to wax. 

                                                                Las Cobras

                                                                Temporal

                                                                  Las Cobras are a duo hailing from Canelones, Uruguay. Despite being a totally new band, forming in the summer of 2016, this album is certain to pin the duo firmly on the radars for psych-heads across the globe. The album itself is influenced as much by psych/krautrock greats a la BJM and Suicide as it is wildly immersed in the lysergic sounds of South America – at times delving into lush and textured afro-beat and tropicalia influences. Fully immersed in their Latin roots, their groove-ridden and mystical psychedelia is utterly enthralling - it's a hypnotic journey through warped synths, tropic percussion, lysergic bass-lines, smoky vocals and chiming, fuzzed-out guitars.

                                                                  Nonn

                                                                  Nonn

                                                                    Available on 180gm black vinyl. Sweden’s long been seen as a leading output in European pop music but if you look a little deeper then you'll find it’s equally rooted in the dark and obscure. It’s the latest offering comes in the shape of NONN - a brand new post-punk/coldwave project who’s debut S/T album will be released on Fuzz Club. Born out of a cold, desolate winter in a corner of Stockholm, NONN’s icy surroundings inevitably became a huge influence on these recordings - blurring the line between sharp, glacial post-punk and the industrial electronic sounds of the 80s. The tracks are influenced as much by Kraftwerk, Movement-era New Order and Suicide as they are akin to modern outfits such as label-mates The Underground Youth and Throw Down Bones. 

                                                                    New Candys

                                                                    Stars Reach The Abyss

                                                                      Originally released on Foolica in 2012, the album's main theme is the time conception, with a transitional journey: the deeper darkest place is reached and lighted by the farther brightest points. The tracklist order depends on the format: one transition on cd/digital, two transitions (one per side) on vinyl/cassette. Visually inspired by the movie La Cicatrice Intérieure, starring Nico. Mastered by Jon Astley, who said: "The insistence of Oasis meets the mystical early Pink Floyd.”

                                                                      Fuzz Club Session

                                                                        Available on 180gm black vinyl. During a riotous UK tour early last year, Grand Rapids four-piece Heaters spent a day off in a South London studio to lay down a live album – the result is the bands incredible and totally debauched addition the ‘Fuzz Club Session’ series. The LP serves up a total of 5 tracks and each - partnered with the raw, analog recording - is a no-holds-barred slab of hedonistic, tripped-out psych that charges through with a frantic garage-rock gusto and a surfy, reverb-coated swoon. 

                                                                        Entrance Band

                                                                        Fuzz Club Session

                                                                          LA trio The Entrance Band (ft. members of Pixies, A Perfect Circle, QOTSA) are the latest addition to the ‘Fuzz Club Sessions’ series - the warm, analog recording allowing their tripped out blues to shine in all its lysergic glory. As with all Fuzz Club Sessions the album is recorded live and onto 2” tape. The LP is made up of three brand new improvised jams that see their warped groove-ridden psychedelia at its best, as well as a woozy downtempo rendition of The Seeds’ ‘Can’t Seem To Make You Mine’. These new jams mark a distinct difference from the howling acid-rock numbers seen on previous albums, instead offering a totally hypnotic and dreamy journey through their majestic psychedelic prowess. 

                                                                          The Gluts

                                                                          Estasi

                                                                            The Gluts forthcoming LP ‘Estasi’ – the follow up from 2014’s debut ‘Warsaw’. The new album is officially released in May. Despite leaning further on the noise-rock/psych side of things, The Gluts have always had a DIY punk ethos at their heart – most evident in their primitive energy, both on record and live. Since the release of their debut in 2014 the band have playing extensively across Italy, including a couple of shows with NY psych legends White Hills. With the release of LP2 - their first on Fuzz Club - it’s clear The Gluts are undeniable set to blow away fuzz-heads far and wide with an album this good and incessantly noisy. 

                                                                            10,000 Russos

                                                                            Distress Distress

                                                                            10,000 Russos are a formidable force; their industrial psych/post-punk has been charming fuzz-heads across the globe with its stomping, shamanic mantras and otherworldly krautrock slant. Their second LP ‘Distress Distress’ will be released April 7th via Fuzz Club Records. 10,000 Russos have once again transcended the boundaries of psychedelia as we know it today; their dark, droning noise is twisted, distorted and pushed to its limit. ‘Distress Distress’ is so ritualistic and industrial it see’s their usual post-punk sound – a primal and celestial mix of The Fall, NEU! and Spacemen 3 – pushed within an inch of techno territory with its abrasive, metronomic rhythms. 

                                                                            Orange Revival

                                                                            Black Smoke Rising

                                                                              Black Smoke Rising is the debut album from Swedish psych wanderers The Orange Revival. Originally self-released by the band back in 2011, Fuzz Club Records are reissuing the LP for the first time since it immediately sold out first time around. With its hypnotic 60s guitars, droning vintage organs and swaggering vocals it’s a tripped out, desert-rock ode to the Stones, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Spacemen 3. Since its release in 2011 the band have toured extensively, playing a run of dates with Spectrum and wooing crowds at Austin Psych Fest along the way, and have ceaselessly confirmed themselves as one of Europe’s leading psychedelic outputs – Fuzz Club are delighted to be bringing their majestic debut to light once more. 

                                                                              Sonic Jesus is an Italian musical project lead by multi-instrumentalist Tiziano Veronese. Since signing to Fuzz Club, the project has released a split single with The Black Angels and been remixed by Sonic Boom aka Pete Kember. Their internationally acclaimed debut ‘Neither Virtue Nor Anger’; an industrial barrage of hypnotic, dark psychedelia. Sonic Jesus’ new album ‘Grace’ goes beyond the past boundaries, pushing towards enthralling melodic horizons and modern pounding beats, delivered by a new-found pop sensibility. There’s still a darkness brooding beneath the noise but these new tracks see the project take on a magnificent and insatiable new form. 

                                                                              Iceland’s Singapore Sling formed in 2000 and are highly lauded as one of the innovators of experimental psychedelia and rock and roll as we currently know it. Their ninth full-length ‘Kill Kill Kill (Songs About Nothing)’ is set for release February 24th via Fuzz Club Records. The LP is a haunting and claustrophobic affair, drifting from the sleazy rock’n’roll splendour of previous releases for a more discordant and experimental pastiche. Unremitting, scuzzy bass-lines roil deep into your conscious, snarling beneath the echoing, atonal vocals of Henrik and the chugging, vapour-trail guitars - this is Singapore Sling at their most sinister, immersive and unforgiving. 

                                                                              The Underground Youth

                                                                              What Kind Of Dystopian Hellhole Is This?

                                                                              What Kind Of Dystopian Hellhole Is This? (Released 15/02/17) is the eighth LP from Berlin-via-Manchester based psych/post-punk outfit The Underground Youth, and it’s arguably their most accomplished yet. Perhaps what is most exceptional about The Underground Youth is their ability to create a brooding melting pot of Berlin chillwave, post-punk, folk, goth and shoegaze but delivered with a dreamy pop sensibility. With a huge back-catalogue that’s collectively clocked up several million listens from a dedicated global following, Craig Dyer and co have acquired a cult-like status and have consistently been at the forefront of neo-psychedelia since their inception. The band will be heading out on an extensive 25-date EU tour in support of the new LP

                                                                              STAFF COMMENTS

                                                                              Barry says: Brooding psychedelic rock, beautiful post-apocalyptic musings and minimal instrumental flourishes. From the hypnotic repetition of 'Persistent Stable Hell' to the fuzzy political musings of Beast '(Anti-War Song)', Underground Youth present a unified and determined force to be reckoned with in the post-punk psychedelia stakes. Brilliantly lucid, exciting and visceral.

                                                                              'Sorrow Tomorrow' is the second LP from Mexico's Has A Shadow, and the first to be released on Fuzz Club Records, with an official release date of January 18th. Rumbling in on dark storm clouds from Guadalajara, Mexico their new release is an adrenaline-fuelled rush of eerie gothic organs, motorik bass-lines, marching percussion, squalls of chiming, fuzz-ridden guitars and the atonal, ritualistic chants of vocalist Daniel Garciano. Imagine an unholy, dirty mix of Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, Suicide and Darklands-era Jesus and Mary Chain - this is a hauntingly good exercise in dark and ritualistic post-punk with an immersive gothic slant. The new album follows a run of EU dates that included an appearance at Liverpool Psych Fest and shows with LSD & The Search for God, TAU and The Jabberwocky Band

                                                                              Tales Of Murder And Dust

                                                                              Hallucination Of Beauty

                                                                                Tales of Murder and Dust are a Danish band and undoubtedly favourites of Fuzz Club’s, on the first listen it’s not hard to see why. ‘Hallucination of Beauty’ was their first LP, originally independently released back in March 2012. London label Fuzz Club are excited to be giving the LP a long-overdue vinyl re-issue. Formed in 2007, Aarhus based Tales of Murder and Dust play a dark, experimental mixture of psychedelic rock and shoegaze wrapped in an otherworldly, cinematic sound merging noisy guitars, violin, organ and sitar. Whilst their most recent LP ‘The Flow In Between’ is a much more bleak, opiate affair ‘Hallucinations of Beauty’ is a magnificent master-class in hypnotic neo-psychedelia; propelled by mystical droning rhythms, barely discernable vocals, walls of fuzzed-out guitars, orchestral violins and far-Eastern sitars, this is an incredible album that transcends the realms of drone, psych and shoegaze to bring a medieval sounding, atmospheric collection of songs that will leave you spellbound.

Although the script was never fully conceived and no footage was filmed, these recordings accompany the story as he imagined it would be told. Originally released by Fnord Tapes on tape back in 2015.

                                                                                    The latest bands to join the Fuzz Club Split Single alumni are London-based The Oscillation and the Portuguese 10,000 Russos. Both bands have been Fuzz Club favourites for a long time so the label is extremely excited to share this behemoth of a split single, offering 14 minutes of brooding, fuzzed-out psychedelia. One side belongs to The Oscillation and their industrial and menacing cut ‘Almost See’. The track is propelled by an unremitting gothic bass-line that roils through a sinister wash of celestial noise, stabs of fuzzed-out guitars, inaudible murmurs and discordant synths - making for a truly immersive, yet eerily foreboding, piece of psychedelia. The Oscillation formed in 2006 out of the ashes of the critically acclaimed The Orichalc Phase and have an extremely fruitful back-catalogue behind them, boasting 15 different releases. 10,000 Russos’ ‘Ashkenasi’ is near-on seven minutes of droning, mystical psych. Both atmospheric and primal, and propelled with a stomping mantra, the Portuguese trio conjure up dark motorik rhythms with their use of incessant, minimalistic percussion, screeching electronic dissonance, white noise and otherworldly guitars submerged in fuzz. Take this and add the enchanting, ritualistic vocals of João Pimenta and it’s not hard to see why 10,000 Russos have been making their mark in European psych since the release of their self-titled on Fuzz Club in 2015. 

                                                                                    It was after being lead on a pilgrimage through “Wirikuta”, the sacred desert of the Wixarika, native to the land the land of north-west Mexico that Dublin-born Berlin resident Nunutzi was inspired to form Tau. A shifting and fluid collaborative project with Nunutzi at the helm along with partner-in-sound, Venezuelan-born Gerald Pasqualin, the result is Tau’s debut album. The recordings began in Berlin, by happenstance on the day Bowie died, the album was completed in a nine-day live session. Featuring collaborations with Knox Chandler of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Earl Harvin of Tindersticks, Nina Hynes and Miss Kenichi, TAU TAU TAU includes numerous additional vocalists and musicians, all of whom make their own unique contribution to the celebratory psychedelic folk of Tau

                                                                                    Everything Is a Lie follows on from their debut and yet again reaffirms the band as one of the most exciting and refreshing outfits in the wave of current shoegaze bands. It’s the mesmerising concoction of shoegaze, neo-psych and post-punk, delivered with a lethargic but hopeful restraint that is pinning the band at the top of the UKs fruitful ‘psych-gaze’ scene and Everything Is a Lie is certain to keep them sitting there comfortable for a while. ‘Everything Is a Lie’ could be plucked straight out of 1989, deeply indebted to Spacemen 3, Loop and My Bloody Valentine, it feels languorous and apathetic at times but frontman Thomas’s fragile yet hopeful croons drive it with an insatiable vigour from start to finish. Washed-out fuzz-encrusted guitars are underpinned by whirling bass-lines that Peter Hook would be proud of, if not envious. Hazy synths crash over you whilst thundering percussion locks the album into a deep psychedelic groove, hitting you square in the face like an immersive wall of noise. The band described this LP as a statement, condemning the current state of the world and addressing the bleak hidden agendas of life, both in a political and personal sense. When asked to describe Everything Is a Lie the band pinned it as “the only honest thing you’ll hear in a world full of lies and hate. Imagine The Jesus and Mary Chain sharing a Lou Reed cake with The Brian Jonestown Massacre whilst Spacemen 3 stand and watch

                                                                                    The Wands

                                                                                    Faces EP

                                                                                      Scandinavian psych-rock outfit The Wands pinned themselves at the forefront of the European psych stage long ago with their previous efforts but the new Faces EP is certain to keep them sitting there comfortably. Dining on an influence of Nuggets-era rock and roll and Eastern acid-rock this is psychedelic music as it should be, underpinned by a nostalgic yearning but wholly innovative and equally addictive. Their latest cut is a much more dynamic and vivid effort and it's immediately evident that The Wands are back with a clearer vision than ever with their vibrant and infectious psych. Whilst the groovy fuzzed-out guitars, otherworldly solos and tremulous vocals still echo a tripped out ode to the 60s and 70s psychedelic forefathers, the cosmic swell of synths and organs propel it with a contemporary and ethereal vigour. 

                                                                                      The Third Sound's new album Gospels of Degeneration shows a shift in style for the group, having toned down the shimmery psychedelia in favour of something a little cleaner. That’s not to say this is a barren sounding album at all, it’s still hypnotically layered with country-kissed reverb, and retains those itching guitar riffs that will keep whispering through your mind for hours after listening.

                                                                                      Founded by Icelandic frontman, Hakon Aðalsteinsson - an ex-member of Singapore Sling who are often hailed as founding members of the new psych sound - The Third Sound came into being in Rome in 2010 and have since relocated to Berlin. Since forming, The Third Sound have enjoyed the support of Anton Newcombe, who released their self-titled first album, on his label A Recordings, and chose the group to support his band The Brian Jonestown Massacre on tour in Europe. He also provided the studio for recording their second album The Third Sound of Destruction and Creation which was released on Fuzz Club in 2013. Most recently they’ve shared members with Anton Newcombe and Tess Parks’ band, which led to Parks’ appearance on the single “You Are Not Here” from this new album. What began as somewhat of a solo project by Aðalsteinsson, the new album sees The Third Sound stretching its definition with deeper levels of collaboration between band members and the influence of a new character in its story, the city of Berlin.

                                                                                      The group’s sound has been described as “ebbing between light and dark, dream and reality, pop and experimentalism” and “ranging from hypnotic soundscapes to tweaked out and fuzzed up numbers.” In a recent premiere on Clash Music they were described as "lynchpins of the psychedelic underground."

Fuzz Club’s excavation of the underground has yielded another stellar discovery in coldwave duo Throw Down Bones. Their debut album is 8 tracks of instrumental electronica born from experimentation.

                                                                                      To create this album, the band’s experimental creative process saw them locked away in their alpine studio for a weeklong jam session, which was harvested for sounds, riffs and effects, from which they built the final tracks.

                                                                                      Experimentation is also in the gear used to create the album, which was handmade by the band themselves. They have been making effects pedals, amps and technical curiosities for years for artists such as the UK’s The KVB and The Underground Youth and have now assembled a personalised set up for Throw Down Bones’s own creative explorations. Their mix of infectious beats and the raw energy of live rock n roll make Throw Down Bones a great act to watch and a dark and modern definition of coldwave.
