Lakeshore Records – 2014
Rock, Stoner, Industrial, Metal
Crow Town – Do It
Another guitar and drums duo but this time from the backstreets of Toronto: Crow Town. On the title-track of their fast approaching release date of their new EP they hand us a grimy mix of garage and heavy blues rock inspired stoner. Think of a hefty mix of Black Keys and Queens of The Stone Age and you are almost there. Do It. Think of it. Do it!
Sun Shepherd – Procession of Trampling Hoof
Self released – 2014
Rock, Doom, Metal
Highly volatile and gaseous doom metal that exhumes poisonous steam and toxic vapors; with perhaps paradoxically mechanical precision they execute their jam like classic sounding take on everything proto. We are talking about the Melbourne threesome Sun Shepherd and their originally in 2012 released album Procession of Trampling Hoof. The record which has just been re-released with an extra track added. Incredible badass sluggish maneuvers have you on the edge of the seat as their true magic reveals itself slowly; it is their fuzzy sound and thin production values that add to their very own mystical outline. It is indeed one of those hidden diamond that some buddy of yours suddenly turns up with and that never leaves your side again. And the bonus called Exploding Sun 2006 definitely has this end of the world sound to it. So check them out and let them herd you in!
