Whales and Leeches (Relapse Records)
release date: 10/15/2013
by Mike Delano
This Portland, Oregon stoner rock crew turned some heads with their eclectic 2011 release, Murder the Mountains, but things may have gone off the tracks since then. You be the judge on "Blood Like Cream." They've got the requisite galloping pace and fuzzed out guitars, but this sounds like an uninspired, Mastodon-lite number with a yucky taste of rawk radio. Redemption may lie elsewhere on the new album?
This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
