The Pretty Things - Are In Bed of Course.

Over 50 years as a band, only the original singer and guitar player are still around. This is some solid straight ahead rockin. It's got an early 70's vibe. They say this was pretty much recorded live in the studio. It feels a little bit "bright" but overall it sounds really good. Good songs good album. This band is probably one of the most under appreciated in all of rock history.

Acid King - Middle of Nowhere, Center of Everywhere

This album has an intro, then it abruptly end. The the first song starts, funny thing is the first song feels like an intro. Acid King really eases into the start of this album. It's heavy, it's spacey, it's groovin'. Getting through these first two songs takes about 13 minutes. By the third song, the band starts firing on all cylinders and doesn't look back from there. 

    You know what you're gonna get when you put on an Acid King album. It's all good stuff. Like, High on Fire, several albums in, if this was the first album from the band it might be blowing minds all around the world, but we've heard Acid King and now we take 'em for granted...don't be that guy. 

Satan - Atom By Atom

Killer song writing, killer guitar, killer vocals. Traditional Heavy Metal with roots in NWOBHM. The album before was great. This is great. Metal!

Pinkish Black - Bottom of the Morning

Pinkish Floyd is more like it. Ammirite? Dark synths some busy drums, they have up tempo parts that land somewhere between a psyche garage band and Pink Floyd trippy parts. Really good stuff.
