Song of the Week – Black Moon Spell, King Tuff


One of my favorite songs of 2014 was by King Tuff (aka Kyle Thomas) hailing from Vermont by way of LA. His style of music has been described as “garage-glam.”

Today’s SotW, the title song from the album Black Moon Spell, shows that label is spot on.

The song sounds like it was recorded by the illegitimate son of Marc Bolan (T-Rex) and Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick). It has great big hooks and fuzzy guitar amplified through Marshall Stacks. This is serious party music. It doesn’t hurt that fellow grunge/psych/rocker Ty Segall viciously pounds the drums.

The lyrics conjure up some weird, ominous voodoo yarn.

I feel a sickness in your heart
Cuz you drank my witch’s brew
You were doomed right from the start
And you know I feel it too

I really dig it.

Enjoy… until next week.
