Gnod – Easy To Build, Hard To Destroy (2021)

“It’s the sound of an uncompromising devotion to rapture through noise and repetition, a portrait of a band whose anarchic approach and raw intensity any other outfit would be frankly terrified to follow onstage. Captured in the hypnotic rhythmic drive and intimidating atmospheres of tracks like ‘They Live’ and ‘Inner Z’ is a mantric energy which take a jumping-off point from the Krautrock, Japanese rock and underground American psychedelia the band were hammering at the time, as well as the droogy nihilism of The Stooges debut. Yet these feral experiments reach far beyond into a headspace that acknowledges no boundaries, rock orthodoxy or genre constriction.”

Anthroprophh – German Oak (2020)

“Side One is a 17 minute Freak Out / Meltdown / Brain Buzz of a mother fucker – Imagine a star collapsing in upon itself and I reckon you have the sound of German Oak.  Side Two is 4 tracks all melded together – 2 tracks of hypnotic minimal electronic bliss meld into a Tacoma like finger picking hoedown before the final track brings the spirit of Skip/Syd/Roky for a hauntingly mesmeric end. STUNNING.”

Guerrera – Mauna Loa (2014)

“A treaty of stoner, psychedelic, blues and classical rock based on their lysergic staging that dazzled the critics and the public in several dozens of concerts throughout the Iberian peninsula… Mauna Loa is the biggest volcano in the world and it places us immediately: its new album is one dense sallad bowl of all the previous work, splashing every now and then some black music, Latino beats, improvisation and darkness. It smells just like a historical album because, just as with great dishes, we love the flavor but the elaboration is a mystery.”
