Long Dark Moon
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.3 of 11
Genre: Rock
Sounds Like: Dawes, The Killers
Welcome to your library an impressive debut album//EP from Long Dark Moon hailing from Seattle Washington. The six member group apparently recorded the album live at Columbia City Theater in the spirit of a prior Neil Young session . The production is excellent, providing a very raw and authentic fe...

Project Armageddon
(Cosmic Oblivion)
Staff Rating: Turn this to 3.6 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Doom
Sounds Like: Pale Divine, The Gates of Slumber
The first eight minute opening track entitled "Cosmic Crush" starts off with some very positive energy. Not groundbreaking but we are optimistic with the intriguing stoner melodies that unfold throughout the instrumental.  The positive energy is quickly deflated once the vocals commence on "Vor...

Yesterdays Children
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.9 of 11
Genre: Blues, Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Captain Beyond, Blue Cheer, Cactus
We know this is not the greatest album cover for a psyche rock band, so we urge you to look past this. The artwork does not portray the music very well, in fact it could have played a part in the bands’ short career. Yesterday’s Children were a highly obscure psychedelic rock band from C...

Tuna de Tierra
(Episode I Pilot)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Sungrazer, Colour Haze, Mindfunk
The highly saturated stoner rock genre hasn’t changed much over time as many band’s today can sound very much like one another. Yes we hear a ton of stoner rock around here and every once in a while we come across a band that just lures us in and captivates us. Welcome Tuna de Tierra fro... Full Review and Video Clip
(The Leaf Maker)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Ambient Acoustic Folk
Sounds Like: Bon Iver, Arrowwood, Origamibiro
The Leaf Maker is a work of musical art where the album cover really paints what the listener is about to experience. Enter the expanse and woodsy atmosphere of Wickerbird. A spacious journey that will allow you to disconnect from all things today and wander into the serene world of creator Blake Co... Full Review and Video Clip
Flavor Crystals
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.2 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock, Shoegaze
Sounds Like: The Verve, Rancho Relaxo, Black Market Karma
Hailing from Minneapolis Minnesota Flavor Crystals, after a five year hiatus, deliver their third release aptly titled Three. The album features a heavy dose of euphoric meandering taking you on one of the more mellow trips we have come across in a long time. Created from some two years of ... Full Review and Video Clip
Wizard Cult
(Meteorites Tektites and Impactites)
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.8 of 11
Genre: Sludge, Doom
Sounds Like: Weedeater, Electric Wizard, Saint VItus
From Boston, MA welcome doomsters Wizard Cult with their heavier than hell debut release Meteorites, Tektites, & Impactites. We’ll get right to the point with this one, it’s pretty much your typical doom /sludge band whose influences range heavily from Sleep, Electric Wizard... Full Review and Video Clip
Fever The Ghost
(Crab In Honey)
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.9 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic pop rock
Sounds Like: Fitz and the Tantrums, The Flaming Lips, Rapture
We were turned on to Fever the Ghost by the artistically wondrous YouTube video of the track "Source." Take a gander at this video, it is well worth your time... imaginative to say the least. The Los Angeles psych pop band released their debut album via an EP which includes 18 minutes of glamorous s... Full Review and Video Clip
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Instrumental, Psychedelic stoner rock
Sounds Like: Aqua Nebula Oscillator, Elder, The Myrrors
Psychedelic rock comes in so many forms, whether it’s 60s acid inspired or todays stoner influenced rock, there always seems to be a band that comes along and changes the rules. Matushka, from Saint-Petersburg, Russia play a distinctive blend acid-tinged psychedelic rock with bits of math rock... Full Review and Video Clip

Genre: Doom, Sludge
Sounds Like: Monolord, Elder, Sleep
Waft's debut album Chronolith wreaks of authentic doom sludge. The only twist within the fumes of Chronolith is that Waft deviates from the repetitive simplicity of the genre and offers up a shitload of variety and detail. The quartet hails from South Carolina and have delivered an... Full Review and Video Clip
