Bandcamp Recommendations 10/11/2012
Debut album from Oak is Keeping. Chock full of fuzzy guitar riffs, haunting harmonies, fat bass lines and heavy drumming…. rock all up in your face.
With their fusion of 60’s mod and gritty brit rock, The Wallies are quickly turning heads. The lead singer brought influences of the European rock n’ roll scene – and the band’s name – stateside where he met his best friend and the band’s guitarist. In the summer of 2010 they recruited a bassist and drummer to form a rock band in Sarasota, Florida. Aiming to bring the kind of music and shows they loved from the U.K. to the U.S.Just a few months after forming, a home demo recording was released which sparked a demand for live shows as well as the attention of local press and radio stations. The Wallies live shows have been described as raw, honest and energetic with the kind of no-frills performances that leave the audiences wanting more.
Their first music video, for the single ‘What I Like About You is You’re Rock Bottom’, recorded by Ben Homola of Bad Books, was released on June 16th, 2012.

German stoner rock. I reviewed this last year and thought it was pretty damn good. Now it’s available for you for FREE!
We are inescapably immersed in a cut-and-paste culture. The oft-plagiarist world of musical inspiration has given way to digital deconstruction and reassembly. Individual tracks become raw material — merely starting points for new compositions. Five years in the making, this record documents a series of experiments in recontextualizing our music. Only one rule existed for this project: use only audio from the original recording — creativity often thrives under harsh limits.
Granted Earth fell into formation in April 2009 in Monterey, California, where the great valley meets the sea. The band’s inspiration derives from the land that surrounds them and the forces that brought members Jon Ugale (drums/vocals), Rebecca Ugale (guitar), and Mallory Mickel (bass) together.
Provided the band’s intentions in sound and delivery, in March 2010 they first released an earthly full-length instrumental album entitled Thermal Tide. The album travels through a diverse group of songs that are formatted around a post-rock wall of experimentation with various metal and rock passages and progressions. Sludge one minute, into post-rock, then avant-garde metal to finish on an inclined stop, with various flute solos and synth-scapes creating a different but familiar feeling throughout the record.
From earthquakes to tsunamis, weather, and war, times are changing along with this band’s intentions in sound. In March 2011, the element of water created their second release Nomad, a five-song EP submerged in massive sludge riffs attacked by fierce drumming and bass rhythms. The new addition of insane vocal terror performed by Jon from behind the kit comes across like serious warnings of impending doom.
“A few background information regarding our recordings: we have been rehearsing and polishing our songs in the last year. During this period we have concocted even more brutal riffs with which we will be occupied with in the near future. The recording itself was made in our rehearsal room in Regensburg. Drums, Bass and the two guitars were played live (partially even though finger injuries)! The album was mixed and mastered by Role (www.die-tonmeisterei.de
Here’s some pretty wicked doom/sludge metal. It’s like Orchid and The Sword got together. Pretty bad ass stuff.
