Famous Class Records in Brooklyn, NY released this whopping split 7″ at the end of January. CCR HEADCLEANER follow up their 2013 album Lace the World with Arms Wide Open with the split, while the trio in FUZZ continue their tear of psych-fueled stoner metal.
Fuzz cover the classic Kinks track “Til the End of the Day,” originally from the Kinks 1965 album The Kink Kontroversy. CCR Headcleaner take a different angle, leaving us with an original track titled “Free the Freaks.” Their guitars sound raw and grainy, led by nasally strumming and shrieking vocals. It’s jagged and textured, leaving the track with stressed scratching and hair-raising shocks. Fuzz absolutely nail their cover of “Til the End of the Day,” featuring manic percussion and twisted little guitar licks. Segall bellows out from behind the drum set with a frenzied wail, backed by a dominant wave of crushing instrumentation. There’s really no use describing it – you’re better off using your ears on this one. Go ahead and snag a 7″ before they’re all gone – it’s only a matter of time. The color version is unfortunately sold out, but there’s always hope for the future, right?
