Third Ear Experience
(Boi and Dog Ear combination)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Atmospheric rock
Sounds Like: Monomyth, Yuri Gagarin, Colour Haze
While 3rd Ear Experience is currently labeled "space rock" we prefer to characterize their latest two works "atmospheric rock". A subtle difference, but we wanted to highlight as the band has morphed more towards this genre since its last album Peacock Black. Peacock Black is undou... Full Review and Video Clip
Wo Fat
(The Conjuring)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Kyuss, Colour Haze, High on Fire
Every once in a while a band comes along where their entire catalog is flawless and you don’t realize this until a few years pass by and several albums are under their belt. Wo Fat, from Dallas, Texas falls under this category for us as their newest and fifth album The Conjuring is an... Full Review and Video Clip
Ultraphallus
(Sowberry Hagan)
2011
Staff Rating: Turn this to 4 of 11
Genre: Doom, Noise rock
Sounds Like: Fantomas, Melvins, Godflesh
This album is dark, gloomy, off-beat and frankly, uncomfortable. The Belgium based band combines doom, dirge and experimental noise rock to put forth a very incoherent and against the grain album. Word has it that the band named themselves after Michael Jackson's crooked father. The opening track "P... Full Review and Video Clip
Spindrift
(Spindrift-Ghost of the West)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Western, Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Johnny Cash, Federale, Hank III
This album is like nothing we have ever come across. Is it an offshoot of the genre rockabilly? Perhaps. Does it pull sounds from classic western movies? To a certain extent. Is it bluegrass? Not quite. Is it country? Very early country works, undoubtedly. Is it the soundtrack to a psychedelic weste... Full Review and Video Clip
Take A Worm For A Walk Week
(The Monroe Transfer)
2008
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.5 of 11
Genre: Mathcore, Hardcore, Punk
Sounds Like: Ink and Dagger, Dillinger Escape Plan, The Locust
Take A Worm For A Walk Week (T.A.W.F.A.W.W) was a short-lived band from Glasgow Scotland. This four-piece ensemble released a couple EP's and two full length albums; 2006’s Self-Titled and 2008’s The Monroe Transfer. Their earliest work is best described as experimental...

Beta Radio
(Seven Sisters)
2010
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Americana, Folk
Sounds Like: Avett Brothers, The Last Bison
The debut album from North Carolina's Beta Radio is a heartfelt genuine blend of Americana and Indie folk. The duo of Benjamin Mabry (vocals, guitar and harmonium) and Brent Holloman (guitar, banjo, piano, glockenspiel, bass, and vocals) is accompanied by a variety of additional talented musicians. ...

Wheel of Smoke
(Signs of Saturn)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Samara Blues Experiment, Pelican, Black Mountain
Wheel of Smoke are a 5-piece Psychedelic, Stoner rock band from Belgium and their second album, Signs of Saturn is a pleasant surprise. Whether you like the progressive side of Mastodon, the blues exploration of Samara Blues Experiment than these guys are right up your alley. The fact that ... Full Review and Video Clip
Kaura
(That Which Defines Us)
2011
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.5 of 11
Genre: Alternative rock
Sounds Like: A Perfect Circle, Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park
Not one of our favorite genres to be honest. Often characterized by lyrics and vocals that are over dramatic, hammy and often theatrical. The four-piece band hailing from Los Angeles, California certainly have put in the efforts of striving for the American dream. The band signed to their own record... Full Review and Video Clip
Tundra
(Coro)
2014
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8 of 11
Genre: Progressive rock, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: 5ive - metal band, Karma To Burn
Tundra is a brand spanking new band from Venice, Italy and they have put forth an impressive debut album with Coro. This trio is comprised of two bassists and a drummer, so naturally we were intrigued. Their blend of instrumental music melds the styles of Stoner and Progressive rock togethe...

Arbouretum
(Coming Out of the Fog)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7 of 11
Genre: Rock
Sounds Like: Bad Company, Blackfoot, Foghat
If you are fans of classic Bad Company and are looking for a similar inspirational feel but want more fuzzed out grooved guitar work, give Arbouretum a shot. This four-piece band hailing from Baltimore provide a classic folk rock feel blended with lyrics covering topics such as isolation and pain. L... Full Review and Video Clip
