Sheffield-based Ruiz!, real name Hugh Ruiz, is becoming a regular feature on this blog. We’ve been sharing his tracks and videos since early last year and he never fails to delight with his unique brand of music that combines indie rock with psych. His latest sees him wander more liberally into the world of psychedelia. It’s called Stupid Old Git.
By Graeme Smith
Ruiz!’s latest opens with an instrumental groove before his smooth and charismatic vocals come in. There’s a real throwback feel about it, but also a freshness – a mix that only Ruiz! can provide. If you have Syd Barrett or Beck on repeat, then you’re going to find a lot to love about Stupid Old Git.
The single is out now via Only Fruit Recordings. You can check out its video below.
