KIND ‘Rocket Science’ CD/LP/DD 2015

21st February 2016 at 1:43 pm

KIND

What do you get when you put four top-rate, yet distinct and well-differentiated musicians from across the desert rock spectrum into a freezing cold, damp basement together and let them go at it hard with all their collective ideas, skills and personas? Some would…

Chron Goblin ‘Backwater’ CD/LP/DD 2015

24th December 2015 at 4:00 pm

Chron Goblin

All right, let’s get one thing out of the way:  Chron Goblin offer nothing new, nothing that hasn’t been done before. However, even though they lack originality, they are simply perfect for anyone who enjoys loud guitars, pounding drums and a good old rock’n’roll…

27th November 2015 at 5:31 pm

Sonic Medusa

Featuring members of Goatsnake, The Obsessed and Hollywood Rose (the band that spawned Guns n Roses dontcha know), Sonic Medusa‘s list of members will already have people running lazily to the words ‘Supergroup’ in order to describe this LA quartet. Formed in 2009 the…

DoctoR DooM ‘This Seed We Have Sown’ CD/LP/DD 2015

4th October 2015 at 1:50 pm

DoctoR DooM

Initial impressions just looking at this album, with a name like DoctoR DooM and the shadowy figures on the cover, you might think you’re in for some sort of titanic, occult doom style nonsense…and the first minute and a half when you stick this…

Sweat Lodge ‘Talismana’ CD/LP/DD 2015

22nd September 2015 at 7:01 pm

Sweat Lodge

To be honest, when I first heard the name Sweat Lodge, my initial reaction was: “Ewwww, really?!” I mean yeah, sure, granted, I do frequently choose to spend my evenings hanging out in bars characterised by their sticky floors, the loud, live scuzzy music…

Switchblade Jesus – S/T – CD/DD 2015

5th July 2015 at 12:58 pm

Switchblade Jesus - S/T

Tejas. It’s been my experiences that not only can a person tell when shit is from Texas, but that Texans like it that way. Usually, it’s crap that’s real friggin’ big too. Giant steak platters, vast deserts, and a highway long enough to have…

Ape Machine ‘Live At Freak Valley’ LP/DVD/DD 2015

15th June 2015 at 6:48 pm

Ape Machine

I’m a big fan of the Ripple Music family. They have been quietly (or loudly depending on your take on it) assembling a catalogue of artists who all share a love of retro sounding, ass kicking, bootie shaking rock and roll. Of course there…

Mothership ‘Mothership II’ CD/LP/DD 2014

16th December 2014 at 11:41 am

Mothership

First off, man, I gotta say, I dig this mother, I really really dig this mother mother.  This Mothership II album by Mothership.  This BallsOut-Absolute-StonedOut-Late 60s-70s-Fuzzbox-Psychedelic-Fantasy-Metal.  Not a real genre, yeah, but I was trying to sort of concisely think of things to sum…

Stubb ‘Cry Of The Ocean’ CD/LP/DD 2014

19th November 2014 at 11:16 am

Stubb

As a passionate fan of stoner rock, the problem with writing for The Sleeping Shaman is that I don’t tend to review albums I dislike. As such, when the occasional record really stands out from the crowd as phenomenal, it’s very difficult to stress…
