Leeds label Cardinal Fuzz have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with very quickly, putting out sought-after records by the likes of The Heads, Hookworms, The Cosmic Dead and even a forthcoming live LP from those exciting newcomers Goat in the pipeline! It’s fair to say that if something’s coming out on this label it’s worth turning a bong-contorted ear towards if you’re into all things hypnotic and fuzzy.

This one here is by Gothenburg’s Hills ahead of a forthcoming album on the mighty Rocket Recordings, with two side-long jams of hypnotic repetition, which rolls along in a gentle head-nodding fashion with tasty wah guitar, metronomic drums and boomily cycling basslines. On the first side there’s ‘Frigorande Musik’ where they groove patiently on a lovely psychedelic riff for about 10 minutes, then take it down to a weird cosmic organ drone with little bits melodic guitar details poking through (and is that a flute?), and then kick back into the groove a bit harder and more determined to close.

Over on the other side is ‘Kristallen Den Fina’, which is a little harder and doomier but still uses the same elements of hypnotic repetitive grooves and fuzzy guitars, kind of like a less nightmarish Bong. Li’l Biz has mentioned that this side bears a strong reference to Kogumaza and she’s right there. Both sides of this contain dope jams, I’d advise psych collectors to grab one while it’s available!

Press release

Cardinal Fuzz are proud to present from Gothenburg, Sweden - Hills. Hills offer up two side long jams - each 15 minutes in length that channel the repetition of The Velvet Underground / Parson Sound, Terry Riley influenced meditations and add Ron Asheton atonal Fuzz. The spirit of Bo Anders Persson is kept alive and captured within the grooves of this wonderful vinyl. Hills got together to make music that focuses on the grooves, sounds and rhythms rather than classical songwriting structures.

They are heavily dependent on improvisation, which creates a meditative space without rules. Hills give us two sides of ecstatic, ritualistic hyp-no-monotony. Originally a mega limited cassette only release, Hills have recorded a whole new side exclu-sively for Cardinal Fuzz. This is ahead of their upcoming release on Rocket Recordings.
