The whole post-funk thing they've got going with alt/hard rock influences will funk the crap out of you. The 9-minute I'll Take Another, and Grow are definite standouts.

Litmus Aurora
This band describes themselves as the "most innovative spacerock band in the world" which is laughable. What they really are is the best Hawkwind knock-off in the world. EVERY SINGLE SONG has the same 3-chord structure, thrashy drumming and slightly shouty vocals (with pretty terrible lyrics). Despite this there are some enjoyable tracks, notably Beyond The Sun and Ma55oN Rift, even if it drags on for far too long at over an hour.

Loving the indie-rock influences, they're definitely developing their own unique stoner-rock sound, setting up perfectly for the next one to be a killer. Falls and Saddle Point are awesome.

There's something joyous about finding a hidden classic. And here we have Mother Tongue's self-titled debut. They once had a chance of being huge but the record failed because it was too unconventional for radio, and that is it's greatest merit. The guitar playing is sometimes slightly jarring, but always sublime and the drumming stands out above it all, bursting with emotion. Vesper, Damage, Entity and the closer Using Your Guns are particularly intense.

While the post/math rock influences aren't as obvious as they'd make out, this an awesome groove-laden instrumental stoner-rock LP and the band are developing a fairly distinct style for themselves. With track names like "How To Light A Joint With a Blowtorch" what's not to love?

  • Voivod jamming Black Willows right now, they're a solid trip, my two cents regarding this sound is Holy Mount - http://holymount.bandcamp.com/

  • Voivod Thanks for adding This Is Nowhere to the database. I saw them opening a concert for Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats and they were devastating.

  • insomniac15 It's a good record, although towards the end was too much. You need quite some patience for it to sink in.

  • Antonius It started good bro but at some point I lost interest, I don't know. It has nice songs though. I will listen to later albums as well and may re-rate
