8/10 Staff review, 04 June 2013

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!
