Crank up the volume – open up the sub-woofers and watch the windows rattle as Fuzzasaurus fizzes out of the speakers in distorted and slackened bass whilst the percussion squishes in puddles of loosely tied machine loops – what is there not to enjoy?
Not attempting to be anything other than a project that revels in the pleasure of creating music and the listener is immediately infected by very joy of it all as the unpretentious compositions tumble through the ears and a prime example of why this site exists, to showcase musicians who add to the weave of the world for their innate ability to add to the tapestry without having to be anything other than themselves and I thank Fuzzasaurus for being as it is and long may the music continue to be as blurry.
From the most recent, eighteen track, LP Electric E-Rextion (available on bandcamp) the twelfth Got A Kick.
The Welsh psychedelic-rock band The Revolutionary Spirit are currently working on the LP Feel Music.
The Revolutionary Spirit
A couple of songs have appeared from the forthcoming album, the latest of which is Northern Star.
The Revolutionary Spirit have a soundtrack which captures attention as the hallucinogenic guitar is overlayed by a britpop referenced vocal, affording a distinct space of difference.
Laid within Northern Star is an opening flute which gives the dreamy wafts of smoke a ’60s summer festival atmosphere and the listener finds themselves with winding thoughts of kaftans and tie-dye dresses as the unhurried acoustic led just over four and three quarters minutes track slows down the synapses to merely an occasional spark.
To get this far has taken me the best part of an hour, such is the measure of the retrospective trippyness, so do allow yourself plenty of time to recover after imbibing on The Revolutionary Spirit, which I posit less references an insurgency, rather the consequential motions of the eyeballs spending time in the company of their music.
The Welsh alt-rock band Blind Beggar surfaced with a new track on the 15th.
Rumours abound that Blind Beggar will be releasing some full studio recorded material imminently though thus far Out Of My Head, the latest track, is also in demo form.
Out Of My Head features the bending of time through chords and bars that is their signature sound which they top off with a superlative vocal once again with their blend of psychedelia and ’60s British Blues, that flows through the just under four and a quarter minutes of the track and finds the listener after each run through needing to play the song – just one more time.
The Welsh melancholic-rock trio Lost Like Alice released the two track single Empty Tank on the 9th.

The vocal, that captures immediate attention, drips of emotional context surrounded by equally mournful instrumentation shrouds the listener in sublime dark cloaking in which there is, paradoxically, a comforting embrace of texture the audience finds a restful place to lay the mind.
Lost Like Alice is an outfit I look forward to hearing more from in short order and by way of an introduction the title track – Empty Tank.
