Sheffield's Ruiz! Emerges With 'Stupid Old Git,' A Psychedelic Brew Worth Your Attention

Catalan Multi-Instrumentalist Ruiz! Offers a Raw Yet Melodic Mixture of Indie Rock and Psychedelia

There's something undeniably intriguing about Ruiz! This Catalan-born, Sheffield-based solo artist keeps impressing with every release. Perhaps it's the amalgamation of genres he draws uponᅳeverything from '60s rock'n'roll to modern electronicaᅳor perhaps it's the sheer authenticity that comes through in each track he crafts. In any case, his 10th release, 'Stupid Old Git,' caught my ears like a musical magnet, and I'm here to tell you it's worth your time.

'Stupid Old Git' is a sonic kaleidoscope, a fusion of indie rock and psychedelic elements that offers something new on every listen. The track is Ruiz!'s own take on life in our strange, post-Covid worldᅳa critique, an observation, but above all, a celebration of the human experience.

It feels as though you are stepping into a vibrant indie club, where the air is tinged with the scents of spilled beer. Yet, it doesn't just stop there; the psychedelic influences seep in, adding layers of complexity that elevate the track from mere indie rock to something far more compelling.

Lyrically, the song takes aim at a frustrating individual from Ruiz!'s past. It's relatable; we've all had our encounters with annoying, patronising people who make life unnecessarily difficult. Yet, in Ruiz!'s hands, this irritation transforms into a poetic vent, a way to channel that negative energy into something creative.

Don't let the name 'Stupid Old Git' fool you. This is a well-crafted, intelligent piece of music that blends the rawness of indie rock with the unique quality of psychedelic rock. That's not all though, elements of classic '60s rock seep through the modern indie framework, creating a sound that feels both nostalgic and utterly fresh. It's another great effort from Ruiz!

So, is 'Stupid Old Git' worth a listen? Absolutely. It's a musical experience that's as complex as it is enjoyable, a track that doesn't just make you think but makes you feel. And in a world as chaotic as ours, that's something we could all use a bit more of.
