Album Spotlight; Of The Southern Plains by Mountain Rag

Of The Southern Plains by Mountain Rag

Hole-E-shit! What a fucking burning and scorching album. It’s heavy blues and fuzzed out rock almost as if ZZ Top meets Led Zeppelin.

Songs of Woe by Kegan DeBoheme

I’m a little late with writing up this masterpiece. Yes, I said it, masterpiece. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to Songs of Woe by Kegan DeBoheme for some time now.

Kegan’s voice can be eerily haunting at times sounding a little bit like the late Layne Staley. The album is a bit folky and isn’t really “stoner rock.” It’s a really laid back album from the Continue reading

There’s always room for more retro based rock. Always. That’s a fact. Grusom is one of the many bands to come from the treasure trove in that area of Nordic countries of Europe. There must be something in the water because it’s contagious. The band’s self titled is another notch in a long line of great retro inspired rock. They’re not treading new ground, not genre setting and not trend setters. No. Instead they’re just playing great retro inspired rock featuring lots of organ, guitar Continue reading
