First rec in six years, and it’s a doozie! This instrumental trio is heavy blues jam, first and foremost, with space, Sabbath, and psychedelia flavors added to the meaty stew. While there are only four songs, two clock in at a wink under 15 minutes, one tops out at 5 minutes, and the closer title track gives itself over 30 minutes of breathing room.
Takes over a minute to get rockin’ (much like AC/DC’s “For Those About to Rock,” whose intro “Live it Up” borrows generously from), but from there, the strippers’ll be shakin’ and gyratin’, as long as they can find a babysitter, cuz their out-of-work boyfriend is passed out already and it’s barely noon.
Streaming all 11 songs of this New Hampshire band’s self-titled debut. The talent level is high, the recording sounds great, the songs range from adequate genre-filler to pretty solid by brushing well-liked elements of both guitar rock and grunge metal, but rarely taking them anywhere mind-bogglingly new.
All ten tracks of this Boston quartet’s second release, following up 2010’s noteworthy Locust Season. Soulful vocals over fuzzy, well-crafted classic rock (some stoner drool, some Soundgarden pop-crafted hard rock). There’re some handclaps here, probably some cowbell if you really dig in, and some metallic gallop and doom plod, just for good measure.
