*Fuzz Ghost* genius Griffin Washburn is ready to take on the world, putting out a new 7” and hoping a label comes a knocking. And with the new EP brimming with a keen collection of garage rock madness, it's only a matter of time.
Griffin looks exactly like the the kind of guy you'd meet at an Indie show, instantly get along with, form a band and live off cheap beers, tacos and basements shows. A DIY-er in the true meaning of it. So fast forward to Fuzz Ghost's new EP and what else to expect other than a scratched produced homage to modern dirt bag punk classics like Jay Reatard's Blood Visions and Ty Segall's Melted. More importantly it is a record packed to the brim with energy and irresistible hooks. It's highlights include opening track Sandy Bum and the heavy fuzz-soaked Sunshine. Fuzz Ghost's straight up post-punk is Lo-Fi and that's what Griffin and Third Outing like about it
“My favorite part about the Fuzz Ghost EP is the Lo-Fi quality, which unfortunately will not be a part of the the double single, but it’s for the greater good!”
Griffin's Lo-Fi is best described as music with a playfulness and the unabashed art of the hook. Is it effortless, even? Even the harsh reverb drenched vocals don't conceal but enhances the music's concise melody. So yes, effortless. What distinguishes him from his peers is his ability to instil a palpable creative and enthusiastic energy in his songs. Lost Mind best showcases this, here a greater emphasis on the melodic tendencies of Fuzz Ghost are best portrayed.
