Waxy – Waxy


Waxy – Waxy
? – 2011
Stoner, Rock
Waardering: ****


This was actually planned as a weekend break album for the Rancho De La Luna month, since the connection is pretty obvious. But got blagged since no information can be found about it and well; life and alcohol took precedence. Anyway; let’s get back to the connection. For their second album released in 2007 was partially recorded there and featured performances by Alfredo Hernandez, John Garcia, Gary Arce, Ed Mundell and Jesse Hughes and was called Chainsaw Holiday. We are ofcourse referring to the Palm Desert stoner band called Waxy. Founded as a trio in 2004 they quickly released a self-titled record in 2005. Their new album is also called Waxy for now and also features John Garcia on the track It’s So Hard and on Now You. They’re now a five piece. Not much else is known yet for the album has not yet been released. But most of the songs have been played during their European tour opening for Kyuss Lives. It’s a pretty awesome record; much more coherent and serious as compared to their earlier two. Their archetypal Palm Desert sound is intertwined with grunge and a Deep Purple feeling. Soulful riffs and powerful rock anthems are mixed with bluesy ditties, a bit of retro and raw garage. No one style applies; but they do all of them well. Let’s hope they release this stuff soon!
