No beating around the bush with You're Smiling Now But We'll All Turn Into Demons. Population IV is the new offering from Hampshire's finest riff lords. Packed with fuzzed out guitars, grooving bass lines, propulsive drums and a tripped out wail over a psychedelic back drop. Think Sabbath, Jerry Garcia, Coliseum and the '60's. Out on vinyl LP from Cardinal Fuzz.

9/10 Zal Customer review, 2nd February 2015
There seems to be a new wave of British heavy psych around and Dave Cambridge at Cardinal Fuzz, along with Casper Dee at Fuzz Club Records seem to be at the forefront with some really top quality bands.
YSNBWATID or The 'Demons' are one of those bands. Following on from the storming Contact High, this outing sees the band get off with the pummelling opener 'The Sorcerer' hitting a Sabbathesque riff before track two's short but sweet 'Sad Alien & Winking Skeleton' which offers some good psyche guitar and vocals. 'Seya' next with some laid back almost sitar like guitar work in a short instrumental. Last track side one 'Chapel Perilous' sees the band hammering a bit of stuttering distortion.
Side two starts with 'Throne Control' which lulls you into a false sense of security at the start but builds into a cosmic crunch of drums and guitars, lovely stuff. Bees Eyes next is another short and sweet instrumental psyche drum/guitar track before the last track 'Hothouse' which builds and falls, builds and falls before the climax. all in all a really good album and one which will get repeat plays.
I purposely left out any 'sounds like xxxxxx comments', they sound like YSNBWATID!
