UK’s Fuzz Club Records are streaming the new split single from 10,000 Russos and The Oscillation. This is the latest edition to Fuzz Club’s Split Single series, one that already boasts The Black Angels, A Place To Bury Strangers, Alan Vega, The Telescopes and more.
10,000 Russos’ “Ashkenasi” is near-on seven minutes of droning, mystical psych. Both atmospheric and primal, and propelled with a stomping mantra, the Portuguese trio conjure up dark motorik rhythms with their use of incessant, minimalistic percussion, screeching electronic dissonance, white noise and otherworldly guitars submerged in fuzz. Take this and add the enchanting, ritualistic vocals of João Pimenta and it’s not hard to see why 10,000 Russos have been making their mark in European psych since the release of their self-titled on Fuzz Club in 2015.
The other side belongs to The Oscillation and their industrial and menacing cut ‘Almost See’. The track is propelled by an unremitting gothic bass-line that roils through a sinister wash of celestial noise, stabs of fuzzed-out guitars, inaudible murmurs and discordant synths – making for a truly immersive, yet eerily foreboding, piece of psychedelia.
Atmospheric, gloomy, gothic. Almost See by London freaks The Oscillation a prime example of brown acid psych at its menacing, hedonistic best. Synth-driven whirrs whisk you in to the neverworld that this guitar band create, before a rumbling Bauhaus bassline, bleepy keyboard bloops and tyrannical squeals of guitar feedback throw you into the not-so-distant dystopian future – it’s like a (good) sci-fi film crafted sonically by a band finely tuned in to the deepest realms of the human psychee. Jenny Hval might have her own genre in ‘soft dick rock’, but The Oscillation serve up a hefty 6 minutes here of Phillip K. Dick rock.
Out next month on a split 7′ with Portugese psychedelic warlords 10,000 Russos, It might be a psychedelic gem, but it’s far removed from the strawberry fields that are genuinely brought into your mind by the term. Instead Almost See is a prime nugget of psych Spacemen 3-style marrying escapist squealing guitars with a vision of a bleak, dystopian future that we can all almost see too.

“This compilation features some of the best artist on the current psychedelic scene, and as the title suggests it’s a broad kaleidoscopic church. Kicking off with an audacious garage psych cover version of a Girls Aloud track by South London’s Dave’s Doors Of Perception, this is a trip that’s varied, enthralling and potent. Girl groups of a less footballer-predatory nature also feature, Abjects are a young garage-punk girl trio; Novella (except for the drummer) are a more melodic girl band, also from London, and Nottingham based group, The Soundcarriers, include an intoxicating female vocal texture. A more typically sixties sound is provided by Miracle Glass Company, Chariots, and young guns on the scene, The Chessmen. Heavier tracks are care of The Oscillation and Psyence. Arguably the ‘sweetest’ number comes from Joel Gion, best known as a member of Brian Jonestown Massacre. The ‘sourest’, definitely the scariest, from Rex Speedway & The Fortune Tellers. ” Well Suspect Records
