Wow! Absolutely amazing stoner rock with touches of straight rock-n-roll. They have an absolutely beautiful guitar tone and unlike a lot of stoner rock bands they have a vocalist who won’t ruin the whole experience. It’s hard not to notice that these guys sound a LOT like Kyuss, and I mean a LOT. Throw in some Nebula and Fu Manchu….but really I like this as much as the best stuff from these three bands. This band is from the bay area, has brothers on the guitar, and Andee from Aquarius on drums. Melodic, pretty, not all happy, excellent sounding stoner rock.

1. Nice slow start with melodic guitar sounds then into a beautiful Thin Lizzy style guitar riff. Parts of the song more straight rock-n-roll like Dirty Power.

**2. A bit more fuzz and heaviness. A bit more sadness and anger.

**3. Faster, catchier, more metal and a bit like High on Fire. Fuck this rules.

4. More blues-y dirty rock-n-roll.

Fucking GREAT!!! -mph
