Deliciously acid-washed instrumental stoner-rock from Germany, complete with sticky-sweet wah-wah pedal wanderings and groovy, heavy distorted guitar tone. TWO TRACKS = 1 HOUR! SERIOUSLY, THIS IS SO FUCKING GOOD! It’s as if Sleep’s “Dopesmoker” and the Bardo Pond / Carlton Melton split 12” had a baby that got into his parent’s stash and smoked waaay too much of everything for a first-timer. Somehow there are riffs and chords throughout, but the motifs just wander through a thick haze of organ, echoing guitar leads and feedback. This is pretty much ear-porn for fans of giant vintage tube-amps turned up to eleven: guilty pleasure eargasms galore. Holy fucking christ this is awesome.|
(This was limited to 100, so I’m not even embarrassed to download and chart this a year after its release.)
1. (14:22) Slow, brooding bassline and some shimmering, spaced out guitar textures. Eventually builds into a Hendrixian psych guitar freakout, though at a very subdued pace—think Magic Lantern, or Carlton Melton at their most lucid.
2. (51:54) FIFTY FUCKING MINUTES! SHUT UP AND PLAY THIS NOW! Step outside, find the meaning of the universe, order pizza, and this track will still be playing. Nuff said.
