Bandcamp Recommendations 11/01/2012
Merging the swagger of old school rock and roll with the aggression of punk and the groove of soul, Class A Bandits has a sound which looks back with reverence for the greats of Rock while blazing its own trail. The mission of this band is to rewrite the Rock canon for the modern age. With an exciting blend of musicianship and killer songwriting, CAB is a band not to be missed.
Oak is Keeping is the outcome of mixing heavy, guttural guitars with astral harmonies and brash lyrical content, about everything from love to the human condition. This mixture produces a rock and roll sound that has been compared to the likes of Toadies, Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age.
We rock faces, play tasty jams, make absolutely hilarious jokes and play the rocks for you!!

Towers sites the following bands as bands they like: Wizard Rifle, Rabbits, Lamprey, YOB, Kyuss, High On Fire, Nether Regions, Hungers, Rabbits, Danava, Lord Dying, Akimbo, Helms Alee.

“It’s that unification of the hunger for oblivion and the desire for illumination that animates the heart of every hardcore dope-fiend; this is a soundtrack for the exploration of particular, fragrant, pulsating regions of inner space.” -http://oliverarditi.com
This one popped up earlier in the week and I was going to save it for 2 weeks from now but I couldn’t resist throwing it in. It’s just to good to not include this week. Hot Fiction are a blues based rock band that play along the same vain as The Black Keys mixed with a little Clutch and some garage rock moments.
