Okay, this Austin-based psyche rock band definitely fits nicely into my dark and moody ‘black’ band category. The band, whose mantra is ‘Turn on, Tune in, Drone out’, has a very soul-satisfying stoner rock sound that draws references to groups like Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Doors. Lead singer Alex Maas’ vocals have an eerie resemblance to Jim Morrison, in particular.
I adore their debut album, Passover, that was released in 2006. Their new album, Directions to See a Ghost, released this a couple of months ago is a solid effort but not quite as good as their debut, in my opinion. Definitely a band worth a listen regardless. Check out this track, You on the Run, from their latest album.
