VUELVETELOCA - SONORA (Fuzz Club LP, CD, D/L).
Outta Santiago, one of the greatest Psych Rock bands you’ve never heard of…….that is till now. With four albums already under their belt in a decade long career blowing minds in their home country, Chilean Psych-Rock outfit Vuelveteloca are no doubt the missing link between Black Sabbath and Neu! mixing 70s style heavy riffing with trance like rhythmic grooves. Newly signed to Fuzz Club for their fifth LP, Sonora, Vuelveteloca are destined to follow other South American noiseniks such as Follakzoid and The Holydrug Couple in gaining a global reputation with their twisted mixture of doomy Stoner Rock and the kinetic psychedelic rhythms of modern bands like Kikagaku Moyo or King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Relentlessly hurtling forward at maximum velocity, motorik precision meets the face melting psychedelic swirl of skyscaper guitars as Vuelveteloca tear the Universe a new one with this absolute wild ride of a record.
The record is nine tracks of a ferocious hybrid of Stoner Rock and brain scrambling Psychedelia and from the get go, Sonora grooves like a muthafucker and never lets up. Kicking off with the psychedelic squall of ‘La Niebla’, Vuelveteloca have perfected blending their mix of influences from several psychedelic eras creating an expansive sound that sounds familiar but also excitingly unique. Mashing together heavy Stoner Rock influences on tracks such as ‘Alta Montana’ and the claustrophobic ‘L.A.’ with Lemmy era Hawkwind-esque sounds seeping into tracks like ‘Tormento’ and ‘Chepical’, and with a massive Krautrock influence added to the sonic melting pot, they have created a absolute monster of a record, heavy enough to destroy everything that stands in it’s way but with a pulsing core of electrifying Acid Rock………..it’s “Classic Rock” and modern Psych melting together and sharing DNA. Again, Fuzz Club are totally on the money with this LP…………..essential listening if you dig 70s Heavy Rock with a bit more of an edge or sonically charged Psych Rock that can peel paint off the walls.
Released on LP with limited edition of 600 copies (200 Deluxe and 400 standard vinyl), CD and as a digital download, Sonora is out NOW and available from all the best record shops, the usual suspects on line and directly from Fuzz Club.
