Fuzzy Sun: The best of 2022

Fuzzy Sun revives for one day, afterwards it is dead as a doornail again. This shitty year is almost at an end and because of all the overwhelming requests for an end of the year list I will make one but with a minimum number of words. So here is my EOTY list accompanied with the shortest possible reviews. For those who can not live without me: on very irregular intervals I post links of cool bands on my facebook page. Goodbye.

1. Chat Pile – God’s Country

Do I believe that this is the best record of the year? Yes I do.

2. Show Me The Body – Trouble The Water

Show Me The Body makes me feel like punching someone in the teeth. But I won’t punch someone in the teeth because I am a friendly person.

3. Gilla Band – Most Normal


4. Viagra Boys – Cave World

I can’t write a decent review with my ADD.

5. Gnod – Hexen Valley

Thank Gnod for this very good record.

6. Black Angels – Wilderness of Mirrors

This list is not all dirty noiserock, It can have some damn good psych as well.

7. Crowd of Chairs – Defluencer

I made spaghetti while listening to this album for the first time. It goes very well together.

8. White Suns – Dead Time

I feel a lot like how this album sounds and it troubles me.

9. Thank – Thoughtless Cruelty

Like a slug on speed.

10. Blacklisters – Leisure Center

Yesterday I slipped on the sidewalk and hurt my elbow. When I came home I listened to ‘Leisure Center’. My elbow still hurt but the music was very good.

11. Crippling Alcoholism – When The Drugs That Made You Sick Are The Drugs That Make You Better

Peak depression.

12. Shit and Shine – New Confusion

Sometimes I sit close to my dryer to hear the comforting sounds. When there are no clothes in the dryer I listen to ‘New Confusion’.

13. Belk – The Committee

I would like to place this album higher in my list bbut its a lot of work to change all the numbers.

14. Mesher – Mesher

🌌 (i tried to insert a very cool Milky Way emoji, hope you can see it).

15. DUG – Pain Machine

Sounds like two excavators having sex.

16. Cronies – Slow Wrist, Grave Shift

All genres in one blender on volume 11.

17. Bruxa Maria/MoE

I released my end of the year list to fast and forgot about this piece of pure brilliance! MoE and Bruxa Maria works as good together as ham and cheese.


Fuzzy Sun on Hiatus

Everything needs a break and so does Fuzzy Sun. I started this website a couple of years back for fun and with a passion for psychedelic rock and noiserock and in these years I discovered so much awesome music, bands and people. But life is kinda busy and it was getting difficult to combine Fuzzy Sun with normal life so I decided it is a time for a break. When will i start again? In six months? In a year? in 50? Don’t know yet.

Anyhow, it was fun. I will keep this website on air for now and ofcourse I can’t end without another list and ofcourse it is a list with my favourite noiserock and psychedelic rock. For the lazy fucks out there I put everything in a Spotify List too. So here goes, a list with the stuff i liked most since I started Fuzzy Sun.


Gnod has released quite a lot of music, experimental stuff, weirdo music and electronic stuff but what blow me completeley away was their noiserockalbum ‘Chapel Perilious’. Favourite track: ‘Donovan’s Daughters’. They are also in the middle of releasing a new album ‘La Mort Du Sense’ which i will paste here too because Gnod rules.


‘Sorcerer’ may well be one of my most listened psych albums. There is so much magic in their music, it is refreshing and original. They are in my duo list too. The brothers are working on a new album and have the first track out. I will paste this one here too.

Favourite track: Breathe


Well, this album is extremely amazing and I don’t think anyone would argue that.

Favourite track: Ocean Song

Xiu Xiu

A very weird band with albums that vary a lot, always experimental and weird. Favourite track: ‘Wondering’


Ofcourse Beak> has to be on this. Trippy kraut music with a lot of layers. Favourite track: ‘When We Fall’.


And here is my favourite Japanese band! I saw Qujaku live once and was completely blown away by their mix of noise, doom and heavy psych. Favourite track: ‘Kagamie’

You can find Qujaku on The Cosmic Side of Japan.

Prana Crafter

you can just visualize the nutare and the beauty when listening to Prana Crafter. ‘Enter The Stream’ is, I believe, the only album with vocals and it is stunning. Favourite track: ‘Enter The Stream’

Girl Band

If you talk about experimental and loud music then you talk about Girl Band, awesome and destructive, unsettling and wild. Favourite track: ‘Going Norway’.

Kikagaku Moyo/幾何学模様

There is going to be a lot of Japanese music on here and there is nothing you can do about it. Kikagaku Moyo is a collective of psych/kraut musicians that make chill and trippy music.


If USA/Mexico would be a smell it would be smell of asphalt. You know its all wrong but the black gunk smells good.

Favourite track: ‘Matamoros’

All Them Witches

All Them Witches is a must for me, their bluesy psychedelic desert rock always hits me right in the feels.


Extremely chaotic noiserock from Ghent, Belgium.

Lightning Bolt

Lightning Bolt contains more caffeïne then 50 cups of espresso.


So much choice in which album I could share by the most famous psych band in the cosmos and I chose the weirdest album. Can’t help it.

Part Chimp

The return of the UK riff legends.

Black Shape

Riffs, Riffs and more riffs. 45 minutes long riffing with really cool lyrics and vocals.


Another Japanese band and one of the founding fathers of Japanese psych. Wityh a constant stream of new music it was difficult to make a choice but ‘Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe’ spoke to me the most.

Chat Pile

‘Remove Your Skin’ is both brutal and destructive, it is unique in its own way. it is evil. If you want to be a hipster it is good to recommend this to friends.


‘Top Ten Zen Meditations’ is weird new wave experimental psych stuff. No idea what it is but its damn cool.


I can’t sit still while listening to this, but I can’t dance either, I jsut stand weirdly in the room.

Naujawanan Baidar

Traditional Afghan sounds mixed with modern psych.

Dirty Junk

wild and crazy, ridiculously heavy.

Favourite track: “Hatchu”


Repetitive and highly psychedelic. To completely trip away and never to turn back.

The Armed

The ever mysterious band The Armed delivered something spectacular with their new album ‘Ultrapop’.

Moon Pussy

There is a certain groove to the noiserock of Moon Pussy. Its goddamn catchy noiserock.

Mong Tong

Two brothers sampling weird sounds through traditional Taiwanese music. gorgeous stuff.


Relentless and Intense. one of my favourite UK bands


And extremely powerful debut album by these noisepunkers.

Alex Maas

Alex, vocalist for The Black Angels, made a solo album full of psychelic folk.


Truly exceptional noiserock from Dublin

Population II

funky and trippy psych by the Montreal band Population II.


In your face hardcore punk from this South Korean band.



Tropical Fuck Storm

TFS makes really good garage/psych stuff and they are on my Australian list.

BIG|BRAVE (+BIG|BRAVE with The Body)

The vocals are spectacular, both on their EP ‘Vital’ as the more drone/folk album with The Body.

Modern Technology

Another duo, these two probably went studying in The School of the Distorted Riff.


No noiserock list without Metz.

Pink Room

Nasty, Belgian rocknnoise. In your face garagetrash. Wild Unfermented Punk.

White Suns

There is a big difference between noise and noiserock and White Suns is one of the few that can shift with ease between these two genres. ‘the lower way’ is epic.

Gaffa Bandana

 Gaffa Bandana is the duo Gill Dread (Bruxa Maria) and Jennie Howell (SO3EK, Sleeping Creatures, Gorse. Expect extremely heavy riff fueled noiserock.

Dusty Mush

Experimental psych and fuzz at its best by the French Dusty Mush.

Alexis Marshall

Alexis Marshall (Daughters) released his own solo album ‘House of Lull. House of When’. And it is a poetic mix of industrial, spoken word and experimentalism.

Pure Adult

A powerfull and experimental noiserock and punk band.

Amyl and the Sniffer

‘Comfort To Me’ is the best punk album of 2021. easy.


Rocket Recordings remixes

Rocket Recordingsis an excellent label with a very varied catalogue ranging from noiserock to experimental psych and even some very weird stuff. I can only be happy with these two new remix albums called Aphelion Volume 1 and 2. These classic Rocket tracks have been pushed, pulled, stretched, dissected and some, completely re-imagined by an eclectic mix of incredible artists.

Tune in, listen and buy it on vvvvinyl.



X’ed Out release ‘We All Do Wrong’

The Human Worth noiserocklabel (Gaffa Bandana, Modern Technology, Cower, Evan Gildersleeve 72%) is a charitable label raising funds for people in crisis through their shows and releases. With really cool releases that are so far all in the noiserock spectrum.

X’ed Out (a band featuring members of Silent Front and Working Men’s Club) released their new album ‘We All Do Wrong’ and it is a fierce piece of work, it is relentless, there is no pause or room to breathe on this album and this kind of intensity is what makes this album so great. Except maybe for the last track ‘The Noble Rot’ which is a piece of gorgeous experimental darkness. On all the other track are non stop riffs followed by dark postpunk interludes followed by sreams and pure in your face noiserock. Extra fun is the trumpet and keys on the songs which give it just that extra crunchy atmosphere. A truly excellent album

The album is recorded by Wayne Adams at Bear Bites Horse Studio (Big Lad / Petbrick) and Mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate / OLD). A portion of proceeds going to Breast Cancer UK

Favourite track: ‘The 5 Headed Boy’ and ‘The Noble Rot’




Elephant Rifle released ‘Satyriasis’

I don’t know shit about America and I am very lazy when it is about researching so when someone says Nevada I think about the desert and when i hear the three tracks from elephant Rifle I see Rob Zombie in the Nevada desert but then he shaved his head and looks all hardcore punk but then the cool version.



Gnod returns to save us

Gnod came to me somewhere in 2017, in a dream telling me to start this website and that I would not be disappointed and look, now I have the most popular website just under google. I am just waiting for the promised happiness and money but I know I should trust and believe and have patience. Gnod has brought us a lot of his wisdom in te form of brutal noiserock, experimental electronics, heavy psych and weirdo stuff.

And to compensate for floods, the virus, ska music, hunger, right wing turds, tornados and the likes Gnod comes down again with a spectacular new gift called ‘La Mort Du Sens’. This gift will be presented to us in full on November 5 this year and to still our hunger we get the first sounds and it is called ‘Pink Champagne Blues’. It will be released through Rocket Recordings.

Get thyself ready for destructive, industrial and fast paced noiserock on this first track!

There is only one Gnod!



Album of the Week: Amyl and the Sniffers release ‘Comfort To Me’

I honestly have no idea why I have not talked daily about Amyl and the Sniffers. I listen to it daily yet I have not posted about it. The cover Amy did with Viagra Boys is probably one of my most played tracks of the year for me, you know the track ‘In Spite of Ourselves’ from John Prine.

Now I took the time to check out the new album and boy, this is some awesome stuff. Amyl and Sniffers is one of the best punk bands around. It is powerful, sharp and has this excellent ‘fuck you’ attitude. Amy’s vocals are just perfect for the riff fueled punk. The whole album feels like a rollercoaster but the rollercoaster is actually a plane and it is actually on fire, while it is crashing in the sea but the sea is actually lava.

‘Comfort To Me’ is awesome and full of energy and everyone who has a different opinion is either deaf of dead or a fan of ska music. Play it loud, buy all their stuff and then play it some more.




Diploid is a trio from Melbourne that makes really intense and heavy stuff. the tracks are ridiculously short, extremely heavy, riffs that make you shit yourself and screams deep from the bush. Ranging from hardcore punk to grindcore this new album is an absolute blast to listen to. tune in for ‘I am Yours. And I am Here Again.



Psychedelic Source Records

Psychedelic source records is a Hungarian label filled with psychedelic, blues, folk, acid and tunes like that. Lately I have posted a lot from this label and with reason. Sinci I found out about the label I got addicted to the music on it. everything is trippy and there is a lot of gorgeous guitar work and stuff like that.

I am not going to post everything again so you should check out their bandcamp yourselves and since you are here you can check out two more excellent releases I hav enot posted yet. Tune in for River Flows Reverse and Slight Layers, Predictions



Nova Express to release ‘Twenty One’

On Rocket Recordings we get the upcoming album by the Swedisch psych band Nova Express. It is the remastered and resequenced version of the 20 years old album ‘One’. The first track is out and called the same as the band and is a gorgeous piece of kraut and psych. layered and extremely trippy, this will be a magnificent album. Tune in now.



two tracks out from X’ed Out before release in September

The Human Worth noiserocklabel (Gaffa Bandana, Modern Technology, Cower, Evan Gildersleeve 72%) is a charitable label raising funds for people in crisis through their shows and releases. With really cool releases that are so far all in the noiserock spectrum.

X’ed Out (a band featuring members of Silent Front and Working Men’s Club) released the first traack ‘Bathe it in’ a while ago and now they shared the second track ‘Fouling The Nest’ whick is again brutal, intense and in your face. The upcoming album is called ‘We All Do Wrong’ and is recorded by Wayne Adams at Bear Bites Horse Studio (Big Lad / Petbrick) and Mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate / OLD). A portion of proceeds going to Breast Cancer UK




Kowloon Walled City to release ‘Piecework’

For me Kowloon Walled City embodies the spirit of true noiserock, maybe I am wrong and maybe some dildos will say its post hardcore or say no you turd thats The Jesus Lizard you are talking about but what I mean is that Kowloon Walled City is one of those bands that I live for, one of those bands that are elevated above the rest with Daughters and Girl Band and stuff but I am quite sure those dildos would not agree me with me again but thats no problem because this is my website and I therefore I am again correct. Its has been a while we had a new full album from the band but we where treated with a split between Shallow North Dakota // KEN Mode // Kowloon Walled City a while ago where all the proceeds go to Shallow North Dakota’s Tont Jacome + His Family.

Now more important, Kowloon Walled City will release their new album ‘Piecework on October 8 on Gilead Media and Neurot Recordings and and in the meantime you can listen to two excellent tracks! Tune in and enjoy the bleak riffs.





Porridge Fist release ‘California Resort’ on Already Dead Tapes

‘California Resort’ is the new album by Porridge Fist and is quite awesome, believe me because I have a blog and everything I say is therefore the truth. Porridge Fist makes music for the clinically insane, the adventerous, The weirdos that always look for something new and experimental, the namedroppers and the wannabe hipsters, for hippopotamusses and birds, for depressed milfs and feet addicts.

The new album sounds like 15 15 year old cool kids kick the shit out of Marilyn Manson with vintage keyboards all the while playing the keyboards and guitar and drums and some sing and all this happens together and everyone is pissed and afterwards you see the security video and you play it X6 speed and thats how it sounds.

Porridge Fist is going to be the new (but then agressive) Taylor Swift, believe me.




Tibetan Miracle Seeds release ‘Inca Misseles’

To give you a feeling what this album is all about I will list you the instruments that are used to create this album.

Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Percussion, Organ, Lap Steel, Didgeridoo, Field Recordings, Flute, Tanpura, Harp and Drums.

This should say enough. Again a 10/10 review from Fuzzy Sun. You are welcome



Intercourse share cover ‘Flagpole Sitta’

Intercourse released an excellent noiserock album in April called ‘Rule 36’ which is still destroying my ears now and then, mostly on monday mornings when all my colleagues are still sleepy and want to listen to Taylor Swift with a cup of almond pumpking spice chocolate matcha latte. And now, good news, they can listen to a new fresh track already, so soon! The track is en excellent cover of Harvey Danger, the 1993 pop band.



Beak> release ‘Oh Know’

Pretty big fan of the trippy tunes by Beak> but I strained my neck a couple of days ago and I can only look straight forward so it is quite difficult to listen to the krauty rythms without bobbing my head and feeling lightning strikes of pain throughout my body. They released two tracks called ‘Oh Know’ and ‘Ah Yeh’Check them out now.




Most of the time instrumental bands bore me a little, there is always something lacking. Ofcourse there are exceptions and Zahn is one of these, the band with members of Heads just released a new self titled album with eight tracks. It is some kind of hybrid between postpunk, noiserock and psych and it is all about atmosphere. The new album is very trippy and heavy. Good Stuff.
