Here’s some pretty kick ass desert rock from a band called Stone Wedge.
This next band, Pleasure, was actually recommended to me by JJ from The Obelisk. He doesn’t normally reach out to me to recommend bands so when he does, you know there’s something special about them. Well he was right. The band’s album, For Your Listening… (EP), is a strong one. It mixes some of the best retro, blues, and classic rock around. It has a Kyuss meets Graveyard vibe to it. Very cool and well worth yout time.
Circle Takes The Square describes their sound as Apocalyptic Punk Rock. No matter what you call it, get it. It’s good.!
“The ancient art of rock ‘n roll is alive and well on Handshake Inc.’s second 7” release – a split from the south by two bands that know what’s up: Dirty Streets and Iron Tongue.Memphis TNs, Dirty Streets fuse rock, soul and the blues into a gritty attack of young gonzo love with the track “You,” their first ever vinyl offering.Featuring CT of Rwake on vocals, Arkansas’ Iron Tongue deliver a full-on, slow burn with “Two Timer,” a gravel-voiced, southern-fried rendition of the Kiss classic.For fans of Black Crowes, Danzig, and John Spencer Blues Explosion – available as a digital download and limited-run vinyl. Mastered by Billy Anderson, artwork by Stevie Floyd. ”
“Bongripper is an instrumental doom band from Chicago. Founded in 2005. Recorded live at the Roadburn Festival in Tilburg in April 2012. Bongripper played two sets: Sunday the album Satan Worshipping Doom, the other a ‘normal set’. This was the first time Bongripper played in Europe.”
Mammoth Salmon are heavy rock band from Portland. This is a decent little debut and contains 3 rocking songs.
Here’s some badass fuzzed out rock and roll by a band called The Shooters. Imagine if The Truckfighters and Whores of Tijuana played together. This is what it would sound like
Here’s some stoner metal from Mexico. This shit is so fucking dark and heavy, it hurts.
Lastly is a pretty fucking heavy and epic album by a band called Cryptic Edifice. This shit is thick, riff heavy and yet somewhat psychedelic at the same time.They’re another product of the Portland, OR area.
