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!

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
