Leeds’ new psych microlabel Cardinal Fuzz seem to be pushing all the right buttons lately with desirable discs by the likes of The Heads and The Cosmic Dead and Hookworms and Hills, and now we’ve got this 2LP by Swedish newcomers The Janitors, who rock a mid-paced repeato psych style which has a hypnotic feel like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club jamming a particularly gnarly Primal Scream groove.

They take their time to let the hypnotic grooves develop, with the first proper spaced out brain-frying guitar excursion waiting until Side C’s closer ‘A-Bow’ while they spend the first LP knocking out louche, churning vocal-led numbers with a low-slung swagger. Once we do get to the pay-off it’s pretty blistering, though; a plodding rhythm section holding things down while fizzing guitars ping off one another in delirious fuzzed-out abandon.

Side D is pretty rockin’ too, with the Stooges-esque ‘D-Mssg’ and slow-burning squall-rocker ‘Head Honcho’ before we finish on a big epic bang with the heavy psych grooves of ‘Nevereverism’. It took a while to get going and kind of seems like an album of two halves but I’ve particularly enjoyed the harder bits towards the end.
