Album Reviews artists



Fuzzy wuzzy wuz a cool name to call this band!!!

Number Fifteen on my favorite albums of 2013 belongs to a band called FUZZ. It’s a self titled album. Its a surprise because I originally didn’t have it on my list until this morning. But I felt like melting my brain and giving my ears a ride with crunchy, grungy, sloppy, messy, feedback induced trio of drums and guitars. I hear a bunch of jazzy influences too. John Coltrane’s improve can be heard in these amplified instruments. Oh what a lovely treat these guys give to me. Ty Segall is in this band as lead singer and drummer. A sloppy assault to give me chills. But I am really hooked on the power, the drive and the soul of those Black Sabbath sounding riffs! Ty’s vocals certainly channel some of that Ozzy vibe too. Also, if you like the Stooges mixed with a slow stoner rock jam sound in outer space, then you’ll LOVE this. Three dudes just jamming away. I even hear the garage band elements of “The Who” in this delicious assault of guitar tidal waves and some Gar Samuelson, formerly of Megadeth, sounding drums that are tight one minute and super loose the next. It’s just so awesome. I cant get enough of this man! Fuzz buster plugged in guitars certainly play a role in the wonderful noise of harmonies and melodies that the Stooges couldn’t really provide. Its good to know that in this day and age we have this stoner rock revival going on! Here…..give it a listen dude! Party on! EXPLODE!!!!

Number 18 on my list…..


“Ty Segall.”
What a peculiar name.
“Sleeper” is the title of a new album
So here’s a somewhat young American musician.
He can write really cool music.
Guitarist, singer and drummer.
Ty has talent.
A California native
He has brought eight solo albums
to the musical table.
He is also a member of various side projects.

On “Sleeper,” he delivers his cult following fans something different than his usual crunching, fuzzy garage rocking sound!
He went all acoustic on this one. Psychedelic styles. Think John Lennon meets Syd Barrett in a sentimental fashion. His whole record flows in a solemn and reflective way.

I dig it
So should you
It’s nice to hear an artist unplug himself
And get all passionate in a sort of whimsical playful manner.

Give this one a listen:
