The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic ‘Through The Dark Matter’ CD/CS/DD 2014

5th May 2014 at 9:11 am

The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic

If there were a stoner rock guitar Mt. Rushmore, you can bet your mom’s ass Ed Mundell’s face would be on it. When he suddenly departed Monster Magnet after 18+ years, fans prayed he wasn’t done. We all clung tightly to our first two…

Harsh Toke ‘Light Up And Live’ CD/LP 2013

1st November 2013 at 10:36 am

Harsh Toke

Sometimes it is necessary to detach yourself from what is generally regarded as reality. Taking a step back and relishing in your cosmic insignificance can lead to the realization that life is meant to be enjoyed. San Diego’s psychedelic jammers, Harsh Toke, exemplify this…

The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic – S/T – CD/DD 2013

28th September 2013 at 9:23 am

The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic - S/T

You can’t get a much more hyperbolic name for a band than The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic however; I wouldn’t expect any lesser name from the brainchild of Ed Mundell (Monster Magnet, The Atomic Bitchwax), Collyn McCoy (Trash Titans, Otep) and Rick Ferrante (Sasquatch)….

Samsara Blues Experiment ‘Live At Rockpalast’ CD 2013

20th July 2013 at 10:58 am

Samsara Blues Experiment

The live album is an interesting concept. Very often these will do little to entice new fans and appeal more to a band’s more hardcore audience who wish to relive the memories of past concert trips. At the same time they serve as a…

White Hills ‘Frying On This Rock’ CD/LP 2012

1st February 2012 at 10:42 am

White Hills

Some album titles are unimaginative, or in a lot of cases, just plain shit. ‘St. Anger’, ‘Ten’, ‘Hillbilly Deluxe 2’, ‘Bleach’ – yes, we’re thinking of you. Others may be well worded, but bear no relevance to the musical content they are designed to…
