Grass – Rippers


Grass – Rippers
Self released - 2015
Rock, Psych, Acid, Heavy Blues
Rated: ***

Lay it on me brotha! So says the Grass band out of Allentown, PA. (Not to be confused by any of many other bands with the name Grass like, the Catalan version mentioned here earlier.) Who's new record Rippers is out for human consumption. Rippers was recorded by Richard Puke at Shithouse studios. The record is heavily guitar driven. I mean Holy Hendrix and a 70's space trippin' freight train headed your way. These guys lay it down live jam style. What I mean by that is the recording has a certain rawness to it and adds to their freestyle uniqueness. The guitar playing has that heavy blues stoner sound that most fans of the genre will enjoy. The rhythm section has a similar early 70's vibe. I checked out one of their videos and they are just as good or even better live. If you are really into Hendrix style playing and vocals with a twist check these guys out. You may very well end up being a fan...
