FFO: King Gizzard, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Wand, Meatbodies
Hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Loudness War take on blown out West Coast psychedelia with a unique sense of harmony and structure.
Their 4th release, Mystifier Deluxe uses a transgressive and experimental approach to reinvigorate the hyper-fuzzed garage rock familiar to fans of Ty Segall or Thee Oh Sees. After taking to the studio for their 3rd album The Miser (Louisiana’s legendary Studio in the Country), the band returned home to self-record Mystifier Deluxe directly to tape. Their decidedly “medium-fi” approach combines blistering, heavy saturation with wide-spectrum fullness and clarity. Equal parts energetic bursts, discordant sludge, and sneaky pop hooks, Mystifier Deluxe is filled to the brim with all sorts of strange pleasures.
