Love at first sight.. but I have to admit that it took way too long to purchase this bluesy/stoner release from Shotgun Sawyer. Never been even near States but somehow this record manages to take me there.. weird, but must have something to do that bluesy sound. Really happy that I finally decided to grab this record. This is still available from the source, Ripple Music (US) and regular black version available from their EU shop (if you want to […]
A damn nice blues/hard rock album from this australian band. I listened this album via BandCamp few times and result of those moments can be seen on the picture above. Bluesy rock with touch of darkness, what else can I ask? Highly recommended album even though this has nothing to do with stoner/doom/sludge. Jus give a listen and you know what I mean. Still available from Kozmik Artifactz on white vinyl if you are interested. Yeah!!
Yeah, what a way to start this year. This came on last Friday and just look how awesome it looks! Pure STB quality when it comes how vinyl albums should be released. Been listening this a lot during today.. Damn good sounding heavy/hard/blues/stoner album and I already know that this album will have numerous spins in this household. This die-hard edition is limited to 105 copies and came with bonus twelve-inch, “A Flagrant Disregard For Happiness”. This package wasn’t cheap […]
These two albums came last week from Magnetic Eye Records. Usually I do not buy compilations, tribute albums etc. but with these two I just had to make an exception. I like both of these albums and records like these are quite easy way to check out new bands (yes, there are bands I have never hear about before). I know that there have been discussions on some forums about delay of this [Redux] version.. Hey, we all knew the […]
Even though I have said that I’m not that interested of test pressing.. here’s one, surprise. Very strong performance from this band on their second full-length released by Riding Easy Records. If you like good old-time rock favored with blues I suggest you to check this one out. These test pressings are limited to 30 copies (still wondering why so much..) and surprisingly sold out but there are still clear copies (limited to 200 copies) available from Riding Easy. Nice […]
This arrived today. Couldn’t resist purchasing this one after listening only one track, “Journey”. Damn good debut album from this Danish band. Bluesy rock’n’roll, awesome sounding vocals and those tunes played with cursed organ.. Yes, I want more! Released by Kozmik Artifactz and limited to three different colorways; black, orange and marbled (like this one I got). All variations still available from Kozmik — —.
Yes, yes, yes.. another test pressing from Riding Easy Records.. Few days ago I find myself thinking why in hell anyone want to buy test pressing and surprisingly this one arrived.. Slow Season and their debut album, very strong performance when talking about blues/stoner rock. I had this one on my wantlist for a while and then, suddenly this TP came available to purchase.. and here it is. I like this one, I like every damn record Riding Easy is […]
Yeah.. this came today. I honestly think that STB Records has taken this whole “Die Hard” concept to the next level lately (and others follow if they can.. or care). Quality release with outstanding packaging (came with extra mp3 coupons etc.). Thank You Steve, for making my day (once again)! Usually I’m not that big fan of split releases but with this album I’m very pleased. Stoner, blues rock, psychedelic (or whatever these two bands are performing) tunes hits you hard […]
And here’s a pretty damn good album filled with bluesy rock, seasoned with some psychedelic rock’n’roll. For a debut album this is quite good release, in my opinion and I have been listening this a lot lately. I really dig these retro sounding, bluesy, garage bands and The Highway Kind is turning to be one of my favorite. Album came in perfect condition & packaged secured which always makes me happy. According to their BandCamp page this is limited to […]
Look what I got from Riding Easy Records yesterday. Yep, the debut album from The Picturebooks and it sounds awesome. This German duo knows their Rock’n’Roll, bluesy kind. I really dig this album a lot, it sounds raw, it sounds dangerous, you can smell the sweat on it.. Thanks to Riding Easy for putting this jewel out, without You I would have missed this band totally. This clear version was limited to 50 copies and surprisingly it’s sold out but […]
And then I got this beauty from STB Records (with tons of extra stuff, mp3 coupons etc.). This is limited to 50 hand-numbered copies on clear vinyl with yellow & green splatter, and was available on Halloween’s eve. Actually I already have this on die hard version but I just couldn’t resist purchasing this.. damn me and my hoarding issues. Well, I love this album and really appreciate everything STB Records is doing. Nice item and really awesome record! —
It’s here! Countless mornings this record has been on my headphones on my way to work. More I listen to it, more I love it. Psychedelic-Blues-Rock played just like I love to hear it. Actually I received this album few weeks ago but there was some scratches on the vinyl so I decided to contact Steve from STB Records and today I received this replacement vinyl (really happy about this!). It’s awesome how DIY label like STB takes care of […]
Got this nice blues rock LP by Lonesome Shack today. Yeah, it’s limited & colored, but.. first corner.. second corner.. third corner.. Oh, carton stiffeners were used.. usually these are at least size of the cover.. not this time.. and of course we have one tiny seam split. This is reminder for me why I usually note the seller that I would like my purchases sent records & covers separated.. Finally, these words printed on the mailer, they do not […]
With this one I had a problem, I’m not that big fan of live recordings, but here it is. These purple, hand-numbered copies were available for few hours from Outer Battery records. And about the record, even though my despise towards live recordings, this actually sounds very nice. So, I’m quite happy that I managed to purchase this one. This is limited to 200 copies on red and 200 copies on purple vinyl. Both versions seems to be sold out. […]
And little different record (if I compare this to those I have been recently purchasing) this time. Sounds great, really like the singer’s voice (reminds me of Nick Cave and maybe a hint of Stuart Ashton Stables) and record is very enjoyable from start to end. This is something I have missed for some time now. Recommended, darken, bluesy rock! I do not know about total limitation of this release but 100 of those came on pink vinyl (sold out). […]
I went out to local record store for the latest album of Oranssi Pazuzu.. Well, they did not have that and on my way out of the store my eyes spotted this one.. Pristine copy and no excuse to leave this one there. Even though I haven’t been listening Danzig for years now, I had to buy this. Maybe I have to pay a visit to that store more often (last summer I found few copies of Mark Lanegan’s earlier […]
And here it is, the winner! Even though this ain’t the original copy (but 2010 unofficial release) I still damn love this album! Record full of awesome songs and so dark and hopeless. Original vinyl version is so damn expensive that I have to settle with this one. This is The Album. And there is, nor never will be song like “Black Wings”
This album has its place in my heart. It was the period of my life when I listened Jesus Lizard, Shellac and other so-called “noise” rock bands. I even love the cover of the album.. For me this is Blues Explosions coolest album. Get this, it’s still floating at the record store near you.
Found this band about three years ago. I was amazed by the fact that I didn’t knew anything about this act. But now I know much much much more. Records like this one keeps me trying to find more and more beauty from this darkness. Recommended, highly. As far as I know this color is from 2nd press and limited to 1000 copies. Available from straight from their website.
I remember reading something about this band somewhere.. can’t remember where or when. I picked this from the record store while I was visiting my grandmother up north. Nice pick without listening this before. I do not know anything about placing bands to certain genres but I would say that this is hazy blues rock mixed with little bit of psychedelia. You can get this from Boomkat, Norman Records, Insound and of course from Fonal Records (where you can find lots […]
I clearly remember when I first time heard these tunes. I was spending my time in library and in music department there was this record. I liked the cover so much that I borrowed the album. Year was 1994 and this record/artist totally stole my heart (well, more likely part of it)! Amazing album. Some might say that this was his turning point to worse but for me all his albums are brilliant!!
Well, this arrived today. Bought this from Discogs.. not as good condition as seller described (for me Near Mint or M- means that there is no visual marks on cover nor record..) but I can deal with it, fortunately it was quite inexpensive. Great record, been hunting this some time and now I got it, finally.
