No. 5 comes from Sheffield’s favourite surf-poppers Best Friends. It’s not no.1 in this list but it would definitely be no.1 in catchiest EP’s of the year, every song is guaranteed whistler. ‘Throwing Up’ was a true soundtrack to the summer of 2012. 

image

South Carolina’s Elvis Depressedly makes it to no.4 with DIY full length ‘Mickey’s Dead’. This is an album that is filled with amazing and slightly twisted lyrics crafted in to beautiful laidback tracks prefect for rainy days, long bus rides or long bus rides in the rain.

image

Possibly the coolest band in the world right now, Allah Las, hit no.3. The self-titled debut from these throwback westcoasters was probably the most anticipated album of the year here at Fuzzbook after hearing ‘Catamaran’ and ‘Tell Me What’s On Your Mind’ early in the year, it was just a shame there was a wait till the Winter to get it because it would have made great summer car/beach/boat/bike music.

image

Long live DIY. The no.2 spot goes to the South-west’s (now Manchester’s) Gorgeous Bully. ‘The Young Obese’ is a perfect example of the type of great fuzz that is being made is garages and bedrooms across the UK these days. It’s oozing with attitude, spunk, pizazz and other words to that affect. Gorgeous Bully must have an eye or 2 kept on them 2013. This was the EP that put Art is Hard on our map, and we haven’t looked back since.

Fuzzbook’s no.1 release of 2012 goes to the debut self-titled pop masterclass from California’s Summer Twins. As you can tell from the top 25, Fuzzbook <3’s the Californian sound and few can do it quite like Summer Twins. When this album was released in January, I wrote that I hoped it’s appeal lasted till the summer, well it’s now December and it’s still a staple in the player and will be for a while.

Happy Halloween



Happy Halloween ghouls and ghoulettes! 

We’ve still got a few Worry Toobs cassettes knocking around, and thought what better present to give you lot at Halloween than beach-pop tapes at a slightly reduced price. Yes, that’s right, from Halloween until Bonfire Night (That’s the 5th of November, for those of you outside the UK) you can get your hands on any remaining tapes for a measly £2.50. They are frightfully good!

Order from BANDCAMP now.

Get them whillllleeeeeeeeeeeeee youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu caaaahhhhhhhhhhn!

Tollens - ‘Drowning in a Dream’ « OUT NOW



Yes, it’s true! The new Tollens EP ‘Drowning in a Dream’ is now available for download via Fuzzbook. 

For those of you who didn’t catch his previous single ‘We’re Not Afraid To Die’, that we released earlier in the year; Tollens is the project of Malta’s Ryan Formosa. All tracks are written and recorded by Tollens himself. Long life DIY lo-fi pop!

Woozier, fuzzier and more intriguing. ‘Drowning in a Dream’ is an album that connects with the listener on many levels. With the ups of ‘Beautiful Day’ and ‘Dear Friend’ and the downs of ‘Monster’ and ‘Just Another Sad Song’ this EP is a proverbial bedroom-pop roller-coaster. Let’s ride.

The whole EP is avaialble to stream and download free from BANDCAMP now. You can also check out this and more from Tollens on his SOUNDCLOUD.
 

Balue - ‘Worry Toobs’ - Limited Edition Cassette

Yes, you guessed it! the time is here. Fuzzbook’s first cassette release.

We will be releasing a run of 50 limited edition tapes of ‘Worry Toobs’ by Denver based surf-pop maestro Balue. 

'Worry Toobs' is an exquisite 5-track slice of surf-pop. The perfect accompaniment to any BBQing, sunbathing and/or roller skating you are planning on doing.

The tapes will be released on 16th July, but we would suggest you get in early and pre-order to save any tears as these might sell like incredibly hot cakes.
