As Ty Segall and his latest psychedelic stoner-metal outfit FUZZ continues to twist minds on their cross-country tour, we’re going to take a closer look at the band’s third 7″ single Sunderberry Dream from In The Red Recordings.
This single came only about a month before the band’s eventual self-titled debut, but what it really did was mark the end of the most solid string of 7″ singles to ever lead up to an album. If you can recall when this all started with This Time I Got a Reason on Trouble In Mind, the band members were actually supposed to be a secret. Whether that actually worked is a different story, but now copies of the deluxe version of their new LP are selling for triple-digit numbers on Discogs.com and eBay.
“Sunderberry Dream” unfolds with a menacingly wondrous haze, quickly showing off the dense and raw power that drives these songs. The track sounds of the same quality as the songs from their LP, while the previous two singles have a noticeably tinnier sound. The song staggers along at a grueling pace, revealing sun-fried guitars while leaving you with the inescapable feeling of doom. They’re at it once again with the explosive cover of King Crimson’s “21st Century Schizoid Man” on the B-side, delivering a totally batshit-insane breakdown that’s nothing short of an all-out attack on your ears. So what do you need to do now? First you can check out these videos from FUZZ live in Philadelphia on October 11th, then listen to the 7″ below!
