Stoner Rock

Das Röckt – Odile (Cold Smoke Records)

Stoner rock was a product of the 1990s. Here we hark back to those acid-driven times with “Odile”, the second release from this Swiss six-piece. What we get is ten decent, unpretentious and varied rock songs. My initial reaction on… Continue Reading →

Joy – Ride Along! (Tee Pee)

What’s that shouty man want and where is that thundering rhythm coming from? Looks like San Diego’s psych rockers Joy have been at it again. Here they offer up a rock ’em, sock ’em follow up to 2014’s Under The… Continue Reading →

Mars Red Sky – Apex III: Praise For The Burning Soul (Listenable)

There’s no doubt that Mars Red Sky write music for themselves alone. What other reason would they have for gathering all their eggs into one basket time after time. Each new track seems to come pre-loaded with the same familial… Continue Reading →

Wildlights – S/T (Season Of Mist)

Hailing from Wilmington, North Carolina, here is a story of two buddies, one a drummer from Thunderlip!, one a frontman and guitarist for ASG, never quite being able to make time to write and perform together. Wildlights (formerly known as… Continue Reading →

Yellowtooth – Crushed By The Wheels Of Progress (Orchestrated Misery)

For their second stab at a long-player, Indiana’s Yellowtooth have decided to get heavy. With Year Of Desolation’s John Hehman twiddling the knobs, together they’ve produced an eminently raw-sounding recording and with it a whole world of pain. Yep, the… Continue Reading →

Mirror Queen – Scaffolds Of The Sky (TeePee)

Mirror Queen are a four piece who hail from NYC. The band play a blend of progressive rock with lavish helpings of 80’s NWOBHM and a glazing of psychedelica and stoner rock for good measure. Formed from the ashes of… Continue Reading →

Red Kunz – Teeth, Hair & Skin (Hummus Records)

I do like many of the releases that appear on underground independent labels, often run by bands themselves and Hummus records is very much like that. This promo I received is different, not a digital download, preferred by labels these… Continue Reading →

Lonely Kamel – Shit City (Napalm)

Hailing from Norway, the Oslo based, four piece hard rockers Lonely Kamel take inspiration from doom, psychadellica, stoner rock, classic rock and the blues and mash it together for their fourth full length offering, “Shit City”. With a sound which… Continue Reading →

John Garcia – S/T (Napalm)

The voice that forged the term “desert rock” – from his years in Kyuss, to follow up bands Unida, Slo Burn, Hermano and, most recent, Vista Chino – John Garcia has spent over two decades setting the standard for the… Continue Reading →

The Great Sabatini – Dog Years (Solar Flare Records)

Spend any time listening to The Great Sabatini and you’ll realise that this Montreal-based quartet aren’t a one-trick pony. Their fans must all come hard-wired to embrace change since, like a kid on jungle juice, their music never settles. One… Continue Reading →

Purplehaze Ensemble – S/T (Unquiet)

What’s in a name? Take PurpleHaze Ensemble’s moniker for instance. You’d imagine this Polish quartet to be a Jimi Hendrix covers band who, before each gig, spun a coin to see which band member would get to set fire to… Continue Reading →

Colossus Of Destiny – In Lesser Brightness (Hellbound Records)

Who fancies a nice, big, juicy steak? If you’ve got your hand up then allow me to point you in the direction of Colossus Of Destiny. With a band-name that comes from a Melvins’ live album and being bona fide… Continue Reading →
