I'm not sure where to put this, but maybe The Who meets Sleep meets Pink Floyd.

They're absolutely amazing! So much energy! :-*
We played two shows with them when they were in Austria last year and as they obviously can't make it on May 1st, at least their new LP is now on it's way to me! Their first EP was somewhat close to (THEE) OH SEES - but they've already outgrown this.
Now it's something of its own! Very hypnotic, trippy and virtuously played.

That first song reminds me of "Stay Hungry" by Talking Heads. Does Rock.

Looks like both the bass and the guitar are custom jobs. I think it says "RG" on the headstock.

Definitely one for the "non-stoner stoner/sludge/doom/psyche" thread.

I've been blasting the new LP a lot recently - the whole package is a thing of beauty:

THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is how you do a gatefold double-LP.

Thanks for those pictures. The KEXP performance popped up on youtube for me the other day and I would have ordered it if not for the shipping expense. I'll reconsider.

Looks like Stolen Body are going to be doing a re-press of it soon:

The band had it still on their bandcamp-page last week or so. Black-only. The rest was sold out! So lucky for them! :)
