Lion Farm – Lion Farm EP


Lion Farm – Lion Farm EP
Self released – 2012
Rock, Garage, Psychedelics, Stoner
Rated: ***


Canada, it was a barren and hostile wasteland. Dangerously crowded with polar bears and flying hockey pucks. But in downtown Montreal that sort of thing hardly matters; you just have to keep the gates closed and those dangerous elements out especially when breeding lions. And the four guys from Lion Farm keep the beasts locked up tight and the menacing music fenced in like a jailhouse island. On their first EP they bring you four songs ripe with anticipation and on the verge of exploding. But this wicked state of pure musical torment continues the entire time and keeps you on the edge of the seat, with pearly beads of sweat on your forehead and your skin crawling like its being attacked by an army of alien ants. Splendid riffs that could find their way into a garage band just as easily as into a stoner formation and it’s all held together by effective steady drums and vocals that bring the gray, the grimy and that free and wild spirit… Hakuna Matata motherfuckers!
