Over the past year Cardinal Fuzz has brought you some great original releases. However, there are a few releases that for one reason or another never made it onto vinyl. If there is one album that deserves the Cardinal Fuzz vinyl treatment then it would surely be Sun, Broken by Mugstar.
Mugstar are without a shadow of a doubt THE premier space rock act in the United Kingdom, if not the world. Their potent brew of punishing riffing, krautrock grooves, clattering surf guitar and post punk urgency all filtered through an intergalactic pulse has ensured them a place on all the major psych-rock festivals throughout Europe.
Sun, Broken was originally released on Important Records in 2010 – but contains songs that are still staples in their set to this day. From the neuron destroying opener ‘Ouroborous’ , all the way through to the spacefaring ‘Furklausundbo’, Sun,Broken offers no let up from start to finish .
Released on stunning intergalactic black/white swirl and housed in a redesigned foil embossed cover with insert by longtime Mugstar cohort, Sam Weihl – this could well be the re-release of the year!

This compilation has gotten me into a lot of great bands via some amazing taylormade tracks. A wonderful collection of a lot of different psych sounds. I'd recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the genre or someone want's a reference release to get a broad picture of it. 10/10 Thomas Shand

The Oscillation are one of the best bands in the world. I have all the recent stuff on vinyl and was delighted to pick this harder-to-find earlier LP off via Bandcamp. These tunes are a bit more crisp and punchy than the later stuff with an obvious nod to Spacemen 3/Spiritualized and show them at an earlier stage of their psych journey. Needless to say, it is brilliant, panoramic, adrenaline-fuelled and life-affirming stuff. deadshotkeen
