My Sleeping Karma is four records in, first on Napalm (others on Germany’s Elektrohasch), and the seven minute “Ephedra” is a fine example of their instrumental prowess. Room to breathe, subtle and singable leads, impressive (but not showoff) rhythm and bass and drumming (numerous fills to make Mastodon fans nod appreciatively), and by-album themes and concepts to make most bong-hitters bow their heads in smoke-filled shame.
