Bandcamp Bonanza – 077
Bandcamp Bonanza – 077 If you haven’t noticed I’ve been using my own photos for these articles taken in my back yard of Northern Nevada mostly, but I felt they accurately represent my intentions on here and equally portray my taste in not only music but as an outdoor enthusiast. Music and Nature go hand in hand and often there is something playing in my speakers while I’m engrossed in the heavy sessions of cloud porn on. Anyway, let’s cut the sappy shit and get to the gold. Check out this week’s tips.
Crazy Bull – The Past Is Today This is running for candidate for top ten albums of the year right off the bat. These guys have been on my radar for some time and they finally were able to unleash The Past Is Today, just recently. What an applicable title. Finally the Crazy Bull gives us their full length debut and if you've been paying attention you'd have noticed how much potential these guys had on their demos. This does not disappoint. In fact, it exceeds expectations, chalked full of infectious hooks, grueling solos, and racy vocals. The Past is Today being exactly that, classic rock of the 70's done in the modern era.
The Grudge – Riding With the Kings Absolutely massive album complete with wheely popping groove, barn burning swagger, and ass kicking power. Riding With The Kings is a non-stop thrill excursion full of ballsy riffs and burly chops. Or is is burly riffs and ballsy chops? Works both ways. Dig it.Favorite track: Box Of Broken Heads.
Pseudo Mind Hive - From Elsewhere Another kick ass band from Melbourne specializing in doomy ass fuzz rock with a demented flair of psychedelia. The eerie vocals melt within the low end bass, solo-riffic guitars and deranged electronics.
Pushy - Hard Wish Pushy are a heavy psych band not afraid to push it to a delinquent level of fuzz. Not only does Adam Burke have his name on the album art, he is in the freaking band. The vocals have a familiar ring to them at times sounding like punk rock version of Axl Rose meets Bon Scott. The music is retro and has that Portland vibe, meaning it’s got that dreary, gloomy blues thing going on with fuzzy tones and psychedelic ring. This is good and it only gets better with each listen. Available on vinyl from Who Can You Trust Records.
Green Dragon – Green Dragon Consider me impressed. Green Dragon casts a fiery plume of doomed out blues complete with reverb and echoing with ferocious layers of fuzz.
Dustbowl – The Great Fandango This one was released a couple years ago, but I only just recently discovered it. I found it through another band in my collections “recommendations” link. Pro-tip: always check the “recommendations” of bands you dig which, when available, is located on the far right on their page. I’ve said it before, bands you dig, usually have great taste and have friends in great bands or other side bands. Dustbowl blew my mind enough for me to drop $40 on vinyl, CD, and digital of 3 of their albums on bandcamp today actually as I write this. Outlaw Americana/Alternative Country type sound, big on soul and tight on groove. Steel guitar always has a way to my heart when done in a haunting tone.
Poor Little Things – Poor Little Things You guys remember The Marlboro Men? I sure do, and this is a project featuring Mr. Dave Talon who is also in the band Rollerball Plus Tina Jackson with the lead vocals, Fernando Marlboro on Drums and Dave doing the rest. The album is wicked-fun with a penchant for rocking and rolling pretty dang hard. There is a heavy garage vibe with catchy licks and hard-edged hooks.
The Boxcar Suite – Further In and Farther Out This is just straight up rocking. Another Nerve Salad recommendation getting high marks from The Huntsman. Groovy alternative rock with a heady pop, jammy twang and cosmic jangle. Well written songcraft that would have faired well back in the 70’s while remaining fresh and modern at the same time.
Acid Priest – Drop Out The hefty riffs rage with 70s era psychedelia one minute while putrid street punk thrashes about the next. Like Herbert said, this is holy shit territory. It’s dad rock for dads who bash their heads through drywall to teach their children the dangers of drugs
