The Chicago foursome Negative Scanner excel at creating tension, which sets them apart from similarly zipped-up post-punk acts. Their fast and barbed eponymous debut is a potent demonstration of how tension is most rewarding when it snaps.

COMET CONTROL is the new band from Andrew Moszynski (guitar) and Chad Ross (vox/guitar), formerly of Canadian psych rock champions QUEST FOR FIRE. COMET CONTROL extends the dark, bass-driven washes of sound that QUEST FOR FIRE fabulously produced and drenches it in majestic bursts of pastel post-rock guitars and bright, breezy vocals. Simultaneously heavy and sunny, COMET CONTROL rocket to the forefront of today's dark psych scene.

A superficial description of their music would reduce it to psychedelic hard rock, but that wouldn’t be enough ‘cos all the members of Cuzo have eaten mushrooms found in the most unsuspected orchards.
The bands leader Jaume Pantaleón and his musical wisdom is legendary and in this project the ex-member of 12Twelve (also a current member of Atleta) lets most of his musical obsessions fly free. The result, a kaleidoscopic and psychedelic album that surprise us with landscapes that flirt openly with scores and soundtracks – something that already happened with 12Twelve-. Music from films like “Suspira” by Darío Argento, “The Beyond” by Lucio Fulcir or “Phantasma” by Don Coscarelli – always with the Italian band Goblin high up on the pedestal- Has a strong high within Cuzo’s music.
