Stubb – Stubb

Stubb – Stubb
Superhot Records – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Psychedelics, Seventies
Rated: ****

Formed in 2006, the London based trio Stubb was essentially a live band and stayed that way until a stable line-up was found; and this took around four years. But after yet another successful tour through Germany and the UK following Stone Axe they agreed that Tony Reed (Stone Axe, Mos Generator) had to be the right man for the job in regards to the mastering and mixing of their debut album. Their heavy psychedelic sound transports you to the seventies and the first note of their massive fuzziness makes your body tingle all over with great anticipation. But it doesn’t stop there; they also know how to hold on to a lazy groove that enthralls and to folk inspired acoustic interludes and little ditties that captivate. But their progressive riffing and blues motivated solo’s will charm and delight any lover of heaviness. Classic for classic sake, with many layers, wild in a subtle and shrewd manner, energetic and free…
