Lonely Kamel – Shit City


Lonely Kamel – Shit City
Napalm Records – 2014
Rated: ****
Rock, Stoner, Seventies, Blues

Shit City is the fourth album of these Norwegian fellas. And as we all know; the boys sold their soul to the devil to produce the overwhelming record released in 2011 called Dust Devil. Which made it's way to the Number 14th position of the Stoner HiVe top 20 of that year. Well, Lonely Kamel is back and the devil sure hasn’t relinquished his hold. Even though Shit City misses a little bit of the magic that was Dust Devil; it is still filled to the brim with heavy stoner stompers, groovy blues and soulful hard rock. If anything, most of the song structures and rhythms have grown and matured. They all just immediately sit right and they all just want to shake your bones. The sound has gotten a little darker without losing its warm color and the drums and guitars have gotten better and are receiving a little more air here and there. Even though there are moments that the composition is so full and fat and the instrumentation so compact that there is little room left; but then you hear Thomas Brenna wailing in the background and you know all is well and everything well be okay. C’mon, for you know that when you’ve survived Shit City, you can handle anything!
