Instrumental stoner IKITAN debut single "Twenty-Twenty"

Instrumental stoner IKITAN debut single "Twenty-Twenty"

Fuzzy digs instrumental stoner music, extended tracks, and the Italian underground scene. So I'm really digging the debut single "Twenty-Twenty" from IKITAN. Energetic, clean guitar work combined with bass & drums firmly planted in desert rock deliver a long song that is broken up into several distinct sections. Listen to IKITAN's "Twenty-Twenty" on Bandcamp:

The vibe kicks into high gear around the 5:30 mark, with the guitar really taking off and the rhythm section cranking up the fuzz. There's another sonic shift around 8:30 which keeps the energy going with a change in the riff. There's a lot going on in this song rather than being 20 minutes of the same riff. There's another change in direction around 11:30, and so on. My favorite part kicks in just ahead of 14:00. 

Overall, "Twenty-Twenty" plays like a mini-suite of songs, and really stands out amongst recent extended instrumental stoner tracks. I'm looking forward to hear what comes next from IKITAN. 

IKITAN is from Genoa, Italy with members: 
  • Luca Nash Nasciuti: guitar and effects
  • Frik Et: bass and effects
  • Enrico Meloni: drums and cowbell (dig it!)
From the band: 
IKITAN’s music is very unplanned, meaning that all the riffs and ideas heard in the album happened to be played by the band during jam sessions.
