Finally emerging from their cassette only past, scuzz-drone afficionados Blues Control drop their first LP on Woodsist Records. Puff is a grime and smoke look at the blues through crushed glass. The album anchors itself to the idiom only in its repetitive guitar structure but floats into krautrock, heavy guitar fuzz freakouts, and moments that sparkle with shimmering drone. Actually from hearing bits and pieces of their earlier works I'm surprised how much of this record focuses on the lighter material; pieces that have an overtly serene and otherworldly quality. Perhaps the bands side work as the electro-drone outfit Watersports has been seeping into their recordings, and if so its much to their credit. The band shares much in common with contemporaries and fellow fuzz grinders Wooden Shjips, consequently it's easy to see why both bands have been picked up by Holy Mountain to release records in the near future. Puff can be purchased through Fusetron and check out Revolver/Midheaven for news on the upcoming CD.
