Stonewood – Stonewood

Stonewood – Stonewood
Self released – 2018
Rock, Stoner
Rated: ****

Five crazy Italians from the city of echoes, the city of illusions, the city of yearnings. Yes, Stonewood hails from Rome and sound like a poetic take on all that goodness that came from the desert. Especially on a track like Legs of course. Grin. But in all seriousness, these cats are definitely paying homage to atavistic stoner and archaic desert rock without sounding like a copycat anywhere. That is quite a feat and the eight tracks on their self-titled debut are exactly that. Sounds that could have been out there for ages; but are now captured by the five from Rome. Easy to the ear, their sound immediately becomes a home and even though the tracks all have their very own Stonewood signature they also all of them sound like themselves. Out Of Sight for instance is a slow burner. While Blue Stone is a stomper with a majestic languid ending. China White takes the trip the other around, starting out laidback and luscious and ending fast paced and wicked. And we can state all the other identities; but it’s just better to whoop in general. Because we love the vocals, the rumbling bass, the intense drums and wild guitars! Stonewood! Bella zio!
