King Buffalo: Dead Star 12″ (red)

kingbuffaloX

I bought this twelve-inch from King Buffalo nearly 5 months ago but managed to placed it under the needle just a few weeks ago. Holy shit this band floats in its very own category. Mixing all possible genres; stoner, space, psychedelic, kraut, blues, etc. creating something so unique you just can’t ignore. Brilliant piece of wax forcing me to hunt all their previous releases except that split with Lé Betre I already have in my shelf. Awesome band! Grab a copy straight from the band!



Fulanno: Velas Negras LP (black candle)

00_fulanno

More stoner/doom from South America, this time we have Fulanno from Argentina with their awesome debut on vinyl format, Velas Negras. Yes, this record is stuffed with slow, acid filled doom/stoner and I really like this kind of soundscapes. No idea about lyrics on this album but I think they are not singing anything about birds & flowers. Sold out from the source, Interstellar Smoke Records so the only places where to hunt this slow, evil release are Ebay & Discogs.. and prizes on those platforms are what they are..



Midnight Gallows: Attack Warning Red LP (blue/orange mix)

mignight

Some freaking filthy stoner/doom from Canada by Midnight Gallows with their album titled Attack Warning Red. Surprise, I like this album a lot. I can’t remember how I found this band & album, was it some tip from another sludge/stoner/doom fan or did I just come across with it while surfing around BandCamp? Who knows. Although the album is filled with heavy riffs, dirty, doomed stoner / sludge there are also some moments of beauty hidden beyond all this crease & filth. Highly recommended vinyl release and you can get a copy (ltd.200) via Wasted Wax Records or straight from the band!



Vestjysk Ørken: Full Dark No Stars LP (black)

vestjysk000

In my teens, it was quite common to buy a record from the record store just on the basis of cover art. Have to admit that it wasn’t the best way to choose your purchase. Today, those basics have changed a bit but if the band releases an album titled “Full Dark, No Stars” ..I’m sold. Only this time the title sums up the whole record perfectly. Vestjysk Ørken manages to create a very gloomy worldview with their psychedelic Instrumental space rock. Brilliant album and still available via Interstellar Smoke Records!



Pink Cigs: Pink Cigs LP (blue/mustard)

00_pink

Time for some hard-hitting bluesy stoner rock from the UK. I would have missed this record but luckily, I came across it via BandCamp while browsing here and there looking for some new music. The first time I noticed this band earlier this year via Facebook’s Doomed & Stoned group, but somehow I managed to forget the whole album. Luckily, it’s now here in my hairy hands, sending sweets sounds to my eardrums. Pink Cigs self-released debut album is sold out from the band’s BandCamp site but don’t worry because Bear Tree Records still have copies for waiting for you!



Spacegoat: Superstition LP (purple)

spacegoat

Ha, here’s some groovy stoner/doom from Mexico. I don’t remember exactly how I came across this record now but listening to one song through BandCamp was enough to make a purchase decision. I completely fell in love with the vocals on this album. Been listening to quite heavy stuff lately so maybe I just needed some beauty these darkening days. very enjoyable record this is and if you are interested then head to Tasty Odds, they still got this one available. Recommended!



Forming The Void: Reverie LP (white/purple)

void

Have to admit that I nearly missed this one, Forming The Void and their latest bone crushing heavy masterpiece “Reverie”. For me this band is brand new, never before have I listened to any of their records. The error has been corrected and learned from. Two more records added to my wantlist (previous vinyl Releases). One of my favorite records during this year. Strictly speaking, I dig every record I own, all of them have earned a place on my shelf. Check this one out if you haven’t already. Ripple Music seems to have 1 copy of this variant available on their BandCamp site (if you fancy these limited, colored ones). Regular copies available via Ripple’s US / EU store.



Psychlona: Venus Skytrip LP (blue)

psychlona

Got this latest from Psychlona from Cursed Tongue Records a few weeks ago. Now that I’ve been listening to it numerous times, I have come to the conclusion that I’m a complete idiot because I skipped their debut album two years ago.. Well, one record more added to my wantlist. Groovy, fuzzed space/stoner/psych and there’s no reason not to like this one. Awesome release from start to the very end. Deep bow in the direction of CTR, once again you have managed to release an outstanding package!

Since this record was released in collaboration with Ripple Music, Us customers can grab the red-colored variation (ltd. 100) directly from Ripple Music. EU customers can still grab the translucent orange version for example from Stickman Records, the blue version is sold out by now.



Wolftooth: Valhalla LP (white)

wolftooth000

Cursed Tongue Records released this latest from Wolftooth about three months ago. I remember promising myself after their previous album that I’m not going to miss their possible upcoming album in the future, I didn’t. The thing is that this record is pure Heavy Metal from first to last note. Old school metal that has nearly nothing to do with the word “stoner”, and that’s fine! These gentlemen know what they are doing and I’m enjoying the result. The awesome package overall, thanks to CTR for releasing quality records one after the other! Sold out from the source but Kozmik Artifactz still has some blue variants available, hurry!



LáGoon: Maa Kali Trip 12″ (orange/black)

00_goon

Uuhh.. This band and their latest release “Maa Kali Trip” is some kind of twisted spawn of garage/surf/stoner band from hell playing disturbed hits from the underground.. or something like that. And it sounds brilliant! I know I will get rid of unwanted guests at the next barbecue party when I put this record on my turntable with max volume! Let’s take a trip with LáGoon! Available from the source, Interstellar Smoke Records. Recommended!



Frayle: 1692 LP (black/gold)

frayleX

Let’s not forget this beautiful & crushing album by Frayle. I first came across with this band last year and those haunting vocals brought me back to this band and their latest full-length. Have to admit that I like the darkness wrapped around this release. I suggest you to check this out if you haven’t already. First pressing seems to be sold out by now but for your information, there’s 2nd pressing available via Lay Bare Recordings (EU) & Aqualamb Records (US).



The Hypnagogics: Endless Nights LP (smokey)

hypnagogicsX

This album by Hypnagogics came out via Majestic Mountain Records earlier this year. Strong hard rocking, stoner album from this Swedish group. Oh, this is also their debut album which is a little hard to believe. Those guitars on this release.. awesome.  Endless Nights is sold out from the source and seems that you have to turn to Discogs / Ebay if you wanna grab a copy which I recommended from the bottom of my heart.
