Roman power trio Fvzz Popvli celebrate fuzz their own way on a debut full-length that will likely leave many scratching their heads.
Fvzz Dei begins with “Intro,” a sprawling near-seven-minute instrumental spacerock jam conjuring the likes of Hawkwind and Desert Mountain Tribe, indicating a clear direction before taking a left turn at the interstellar garage. Aside from “Hashish,” another heady exploration, the majority of the songs sound like Helios Creed’s AmRep albums thrown into a black hole with Mudhoney, Halo of Flies and Greece’s Bazooka, making a twisted extra-terrestrial monolith of fuzz to the earthly pleasures of “Masturbation,” “White Fish” and stamps. All the elements join forces in the closing “Shamother,” an awesome Farflung-like psychedelic epic clocking in at almost eleven minutes. It’s a unique take on a genre that’s too rife with bland imitators.
Got the stoner rock blues? Let Fvzz Popvli fuzz them away.
