• juju Our Mother Was a Plant (180g vinyl LP, £17.50)

    label: Fuzz Club Records

    JuJu is the brainchild of Sicilian multi-instrumentalist Gioele Valenti (Lay Llamas, Herself). Having now signed to Fuzz Club Records, the project is set to release the second LP ‘Our Mother Was A Plant’ – the follow-up to 2016s S/T debut that was widely hailed as one of the most innovative psych albums of the year. Carrying on in its predecessor’s footsteps, the new LP is a continuation of JuJu’s ritualistic sonic exploration into the cultural implications of the current refugee crisis, humanities increasingly strained relationship with Mother Earth and neo-Pagan mythology. Even more adventurous than the last, JuJu has changed the game for modern psychedelia once again. Calling it just a ‘psych’ record would be an injustice though, JuJu’s shamanic, lysergic mantras are influenced just as much by afrobeat, krautrock, glam, post-punk, art rock, drone and just about everything in between. Tracklist: 1) Death By Beautiful Things 2) In A Ghetto (Feat Tobias Ekberg) 3) And Play A Game 4) James Dean 5) I Got Your Soul 6) Patrick 7) What A Bad Day 8) Sunny After Moon (Feat Tobias Ekberg)
