This week we’re sharing a couple limited edition cassettes we picked up from Vacation Vinyl over the weekend. Here’s the newly formed Fuzz along with a game-changing 1992 release by stoner metal trio Sleep.
Fuzz - S/T
Fuzz released an uncredited 7″ early last year, presumably to avoid the connection of the bands drummer and singer Ty Segall’s recent revered status as a songwriter/musician. After the word got out (He is on vocals so it wasn’t too hard for any Segall fans to realize) they since released a couple more 7″ releases and now graced us with a full length. This album employs an almost perfect connection of three equally talented and like-minded friends who just want to play fast rock n roll and solo for as long as they feel like. Of the two cassettes we’re featuring be careful, this one makes you want to drive really fast (if you still have a tape deck in your car).
Sleep - Sleep’s Holy Mountain
It’s hard to give a review on an album like this one, it’s been reviewed countless times int he past 20 years by the most critical critics in music almost always to the highest praise. Sleep started playing together as friends in high-school obsessed with Black Sabbath, and have since basically created a genre in metal with their first three albums, this one being up front. Since Sleep disbanded, founding members Al Cisneros and Matt Pike have gone on to much success in creating bands Om and High on Fire, respectively. Unlike the Fuzz cassette, this album will slow your roll in the best way possible, make sure to turn it up!
