Indie supergroup Left Field Messiah have announced their debut LP In Praise of Bombast, due out February 12, and shared their darkly soulful new track “Fuzz Machine” and we are pleased to premiere. The group, composed of Steve Bays from Hot Hot Heat, Jeremy Ruzumna of Fitz and the Tantrums, and Erik Janson of Wildling brings together their divergent energies to harmonize over blissed out hooks channeled from some primal instinctual well. Check out the track, as well as album cover and tracklist below.

On the making of the track, the group had this to say: “Fuzz Machine was the third song we wrote for the record. It was also the song that inspired our band name because of the chaos and freedom we felt while working on it. It was a late night in the studio after finishing work on our second song when Jeremy started playing a nylon string guitar sample on his keyboard. We began laying down parts with odds and ends around the studio—a banjitar, harmonica, and then we frenetically recorded the intro vocals, which led to Steve grabbing a handheld mic and recording his vocals with the studio speakers on full blast. It felt raw, it felt right, and it helped the three of us to see through the haze of some toxic relationships we were in.”
