Album Review
Reviewed 2009-11-15
Kick ass garage rock. This Tel-Aviv based trio blasts out some pretty retro sounding tracks, mostly bringing to mind the Stooges with some Sabbathy stoner rock elements. Gritty, dirty sounding guitars, crazy drumming, gnarly Iggy-style screaming vocals. Great stuff! Sounds like they would make a great live act. Some might call this derivative, but who cares? This is very good stuff and loads of fun to listen to.

Picks: 5, 7, 6, 4 ***No FCCs detected***

1. Weird, rocking, and noisy as hell. Good opening material...
2. Has this chugging start stop rhythm going... Good stuff, nice guitar riff...
3. Swaggering, dirty, swampy, nice.
*4. Slow and bluesy, gets all noisy and messed up towards the end.
**5. Nice! Singer and guitarist trade squeels and feedback in a very cool way. Nice guitar work. Badass...
*6. Fast paced balls-out moshpit rocker.
*7. A minute and a half of indecipherable rambling gives way to an awesome head-nodding stoner riff, then some more rambling, then back to stoner land... Weird...
8. Total psyche-style experimentation... Taking the stoner paradigm to its quieter moments... Quite pleasant
