JuJu is the brainchild of Sicilian multi-instrumentalist Gioele Valenti (Lay Llamas, Herself). Having now signed to Fuzz Club Records, the project is set to release the sophomore LP ‘Our Mother Was A Plant’ – the follow-up to 2016s S/T debut that was widely hailed as one of the most innovative psych albums of the year. Carrying on in its predecessor’s footsteps, the new LP is a continuation of JuJu’s ritualistic sonic exploration into the cultural implications of the current refugee crisis, humanities increasingly strained relationship with Mother Earth and neo-pagan mythology. Even more adventurous than the last, JuJu has changed the game for modern psychedelia once again. Calling it just a ‘psych’ record would be an injustice though, JuJu’s shamanic, lysergic mantras are influenced just as much by afrobeat, krautrock, glam, post-punk, art rock, drone and just about everything in between.
