Latest Reviews - August 28, 2016
Ghost Box Orchestra
(High Plaine)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.4 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic, Shoegaze, Heavy psyche rock
Sounds Like: The Black Angels, Wooden Shijps, Spacemen 3
Ghost Box Orchestra is undoubtedly one of the hidden gems nestled here in the Northeast, US. The five-piece band from Boston, Massachusetts has unleashed one hell of an album with High Plaine. They have pulled out all the stops on this one; it’s dense, trippy, psychedelic, mesmerizing... Full Review and Video Clip
Youth Pool
(Dive In)
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.9 of 11
Genre: Dream pop, New Wave
Sounds Like: The Smiths, Cocteau Twins
Youth Pool hails from Kansas City, Missouri and have released their debut EP entitled Dive In. Youth Pool’s sound features a core dream-pop underpinning with splashes of shoegaze and classic new wave sound. The five tracks have a steady melancholy meandering and hazy feel as David Cha...

Cambrian Explosion
(The Sun)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Hookworms, Tame Impala
Nestled in the Northwest music scene mecca of Portland, Oregon Cambrian Explosion burst with classic psychedelia with their 2013 debut The Sun. With a shit ton of competition in the area Cambrian certainly establishes themselves with the core psychedelic make-up through and through. But did... Full Review and Video Clip
(Second Sight)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic rock, Prog-rock, Space rock
Sounds Like: Hawkwind, Pink Floyd, Moon Duo
Our eyes and ears recently have been opened up to some new intense psych rock thanks to The Obelisk All-Dayer this Saturday in Brooklyn, NY. From Ohio, welcome EYE and their highly underappreciated 2013 album Second Sight. Where do we begin describing the album, for one, it’s an origi... Full Review and Video Clip
King Buffalo
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic rock, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: All Them Witches, Dead Meadow
We are fired up to catch these guys at The All-Dayer at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn on August 20th. King Buffalo have clearly stepped up their game with their latest release entitled Orion. They have now entered Rotation11 Editor’s Pick territory through their ability to tighten up the so... Full Review and Video Clip
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Weedpecker, Alice in Chains, Truckfighters
If you're unfamiliar with Snail, here's a brief introduction. Hailing from Seattle, Washington Snail formed in 1992 and released their first Self-Titled album in 1993. Back then, way before Rotation11, a couple of our writers had jumped on the Snail train, this album had a great blend of gr... Full Review and Video Clip
BigBee of The Whitetree
(North American Nomad)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Folk, Indie
Sounds Like: Bon Iver, Wickerbird
Mathew J. Bigbee is one talented fellow. His unique folk vision is told under the name BigBee of the Whitetree with only sporadic accompaniment by friends and family. The one man show hails from Seattle Washington and clearly has a love for the wilderness and Native American folk. The BigBee sound c... Full Review and Video Clip
Death Alley
(Black Magick Boogieland)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.2 of 11
Genre: Hard rock, Punk, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Bad Wizard, The Atomic Bitchwax, Sasquatch
If you’re a fan of old school stoner rock, than you’ll appreciate the energy and groove of Death Alley’s second album Black Magick Boogieland. Back in the mid-nineties when stoner rock was making the scene, we flocked towards bands like Kyuss, Monster Magnet and Fu Manchu, yet were... Full Review and Video Clip
Strippers In Love
(I Am What Im Becoming)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 10.6 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Bloodiest, Last Crack, Ink and Dagger
Strippers In Love have absolutely floored us sonically. We must harken back to former true 'under the radar'  innovators like Last Crack, Barkmarket, or Mindfunk to recall such impactful revolutionary sound. Interestingly enough, we stumbled upon these musical wizards as they have just released... Full Review and Video Clip
(Space Muffin)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.3 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Space rock
Sounds Like: Monster Magnet, Orange Goblin, Gas Giant
Hailing from Verona, Italy Kayleth’s 2015 album is their fourth release since 2008. Enrico’s vocals remind us very much of Monster Magnet’s Dave Wyndorf minus his ability to hit the lower octaves and really get dark. Instead Kayleth presents more Orange Goblin-like movement as cont... Full Review and Video Clip
