Mondo Drag Sign For New Album With Kozmik Artifactz

Mondo Drag Album

Mondo Drag biography:
 
Under the spiritual guidance of the forefathers of heavy psych, prog, and proto-metal, Mondo Drag has created an amalgamation of sounds the likes of which have not resounded through the atmosphere for decades. The band’s unique sound, and rare cohesion probably stem from the fact that core members John Gamino, Nolan Girard, and Jake Sheley actually grew up within a one mile radius from each other, attended the same schools, were a part of the same scene, and have played music with each other for 15 years.

Stream ‘Endless Mountain’ by Slow Season; Mountains Released on 11th November

Press “play” on Slow Season’s second full-length album Mountains (RidingEasy Records), and you might just forget what era you’re in. It could very well be the sixties, seventies, or now. It almost doesn’t matter though because this is hypnotic, heavy, and howling rock ‘n’ roll that defies both musical and temporal categorization.

The Central California quartet – Daniel Rice (vocals, guitar), David Kent (guitar), Hayden Doyel (bass), and Cody Tarbell (drums) – scale new heights, while recognising where it all began.

“I’d love for people to wonder if this record is actually from 1969,” grins Cody. “We wanted to capture that spirit. That was the goal.” Continue reading

The Golden Grass To Tour Europe, New 7″ Single

Swamp Booking, in conjunction with Svart Records, is proud to announce the debut European tour by one of the most exciting new groups of the global underground heavy rock scene, The Golden Grass. Formed in early 2013 by Adam Kriney (La Otracina) and Michael Rafalowich (Strange Haze/Whooping Crane/Tav Falco’s Panther Burns), the band came together to write uplifting and feel-good heavy boogie rock music, complete with soaring soulful harmony-laden vocals, epic psychedelic/prog passages, Southern/country vibrations, and top-notch musicality.Before The Golden Grass had even played a single show, their infectious classic sound caught the ear of Beastmilk’s Mat McNerney, who heard some early demos, and within weeks, the group was signed with Svart Records. The band has toured the Eastern USA extensively, playing with a slew of bands across the underground heavy/rock/psychedelic/metal scenes, resonating with headbanger and hippie alike, establishing an instant cult following wherever they performed.

The Golden Grass’ self-titled debut LP was released this past May by Svart Records and met with universal critical acclaim. Classic Rock Magazine gave it an 8/10, calling it “A boogie-heavy anthem…This is rock at its most classic,” and the group was nominated for Best New Band in their annual readers poll. Shindig magazine also ran features on the group, gave it a 4/5 review, calling it “Rootsy psychedelia-infused Southern country-rock that actually leaves you smiling.” Even metal mag Iron Fist got the vibe, noting, “The Golden Grass stand tall and proud for one damn reason: sincerity.”

The Golden Grass will bring their incredible live concert experience to Europe this November. Confirmed dates/venues are as follows:
