Henge – S/T – LP/DD 2015

12th September 2015 at 10:45 am

Henge - S/T

While Henge may well be a new name to many stoner/doom fans, they come with a sound that should be comfortingly familiar to anyone with experience in the genre. Big, downtuned guitars are a staple, as are hypnotically repetitive riffs, and the whole package…

Sacri Monti – S/T – CD/LP 2015

15th August 2015 at 1:54 pm

Sacri Monti - S/T

Sacri Monti are a fuzzy, psychey, trip-out of a band from San Diego, California whose debut eponymous full length has just dropped down on us from Tee Pee Records’ sepia-tinted land of sonic solace. The quintet are comprised of members of Radio Moscow (bassist…

Bong ‘We Are, We Were And We Will Have Been’ CD/LP/DD 2015

14th July 2015 at 6:45 pm

Bong

Because I’m lazy and I live in Amsterdam, writing this review took a little longer than planned. That’s absolutely no worry though, as I can now read all the other reviews and see what ‘they’ are saying. This gives me the distinct advantage of…

Evil Acidhead ‘In The Name Of All That Is Unholy’ CD/LP Reissue 2015

6th July 2015 at 6:53 pm

Evil Acidhead

When you think of the name John McBain, the terms ‘nihilism’ and ‘anarchy’ aren’t the first words to come to mind, of course disregarding his cool as hell ‘fuck you’ guitar psychedelics that fated Monster Magnet’s Spine Of God as a virtual classic –…

White Hills ‘Walks For Motorists’ CD/LP/DD 2015

5th July 2015 at 12:48 pm

White Hills

Let’s talk about love and let’s talk about music. I love White Hills because I suspect they love a lot of the classic music that I love too. I reckon they love Chrome and Kraftwerk and The Stooges and Hawkwind and Can and lots…

Hex Inverter – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2015

18th June 2015 at 7:10 pm

Hex Inverter - S/T

Philadelphia five-piece Hex Inverter may be intent on maintaining a low profile but their highly evolved take on meditative psych rock and its sub genres is bound to garner them more than just a modicum of success–boasting current members of Pennsylvania sibling act Empty…

Carlton Melton ‘Out To Sea’ CD/LP

11th June 2015 at 7:46 pm

Carlton Melton

They call it Dome Rock. Improvised, experimental, instrumental, psychedelic movements built out of drums, guitar, bass, and (in the case of their latest release only occasional) synthesisers. They call themselves Carlton Melton and on the bio page of their website there’s an adroit little…

Jungfrau ‘Nacht’ LP/DD 2015

4th May 2015 at 10:31 am

Jungfrau

Given both their band name, Jungfrau, and album title, Nacht, are in German, and they’re self describes as “Psych-Kraut”, you’d be forgiven for expecting the Brighton based four piece to trot out some kind of mind numbing sub-Can motorik shuffling and little else. Certainly…

Sloath ‘Deep Mountain’ LP/DD 2014

7th January 2015 at 11:48 am

Sloath

Stoner metal is a genre thrown around a bit freely, in my opinion – if a band is really tight, really together, really clean – well, it doesn’t fit the genre descriptor, y’know? You can have as many bad weed references in your song…
