Fans of The Swamp know how much Fuzzy digs psych rock and all things psychedelic, and The Swamp Krewe has given a warm welcome to our new band, FAIRYPORT CONVENT with their monthly dose of cutting-edge psych from Poland. Well, today I am excited to share the news about the vinyl pre-order from A.J. KAUFMANN, the man behind Fairyport Convent. "Stoned Gypsy Wanderer" is 14 songs that run the spectrum of psych rock from catchy to experimental and back again. Listen to "Stoned Gypsy Wanderer" on Bandcamp: 

AJ Kaufmann has a great voice which works so well with his music, and his lyrics are pure poetry. His music really is everything you could ask for in psych rock: groovy tunes, catchy vocals, and deep lyrics.

To me, an important part of psychedelic music is the experimentation. Of course the riffs and grooves are important, but so too is the ability to try new sounds and different directions. AJ Kaufmann puts so much creative energy into this album that it could power an entire discography from a lesser band. 

Fuzzy's Favorites: "Crown Of Things" with its middle-eastern flair and slow burning groove, and "Veil of Isis" with its tripped-out vocals and psych pop vibe. "Iceberg" is also not to be missed, although this album deserves to be heard from start to finish.

"Stoned Gypsy Wanderer" drops on August 2, and the vinyl is on pre-order now at
