Year of the Cobra
Year of the Cobra
Year of the Cobra is a two piece stoner/doom band from Seattle, WA made up of Amy Tung Barrysmith on bass and vocals and Johanes Barrysmith on drums.
Desert Suns
Desert Suns
There's a new sheriff in town by the name of Desert Suns. It seems that bands today are having to do more and more to stand out and these fellas have done just that. Where stoner rock, doom, sludge, psychedelic and blues all overlap you get Desert Suns. A San Diego band formed in 2013 by four hefty dudes with enough hair to challenge Cousin Itt to a test of anonymity. Soon after forming they released their single "Burning Temples" January of 2014 which helped them to acquire a great fan base and got them some great reviews. "Some of the doomiest riffs that would make one Mr. Iommi a very happy and proud person" says Bill Goodman in his review of the Desert Suns single Burning Temples. Their debut, self-titled album was released later that year on August 16th 2014 and reassured fans that they were no one hit wonder and also got them enough attention to book gigs all around the city. This attention is much deserved as the band has a genuine fluidity and a fresh take on how we hear rock. Although, the band has the ability to rip out some heavy material that would even get Grandma headbanging, they know how to seduce through gritty americana thanks to well-placed harmonica and purring vocals. From beginning to end, Desert Suns has compelling hooks, an addictive atmospheric energy and heavy, pulsating beats that get blood boiling with obstreperous energy.
Nebula Drag
Nebula Drag
"Newcomers Nebula Drag join the ranks of a crowded heavy psych scene in their native San Diego via their self-titled, self-released debut, but the trio distinguish themselves immediately with a solidified underpinning of punkish intent, so that the airy vocals of “Sano” float over an insistent, noisy crunch. That blend is toyed with in one direction or another throughout the release, the five-minute “So Low” finding some middle-ground in grunge push, but as the subsequent “Up and Down”’s Melvins-style roll and the hardcore-style drive of “Lost Time” play out, Nebula Drag seem far less tied to any single approach. It’s a dynamic that serves them well throughout the album’s 10-track/37-minute run, and they maintain a sense of rawness in the almost thrashy breakdown of “I Can Not Explain” that speaks to a lack of pretense to go along with their potential for development. Will be curious to hear if one side or the other wins out in their sound over the long-term, but in a town where so many bands are geared on being the most laid back, it’s refreshing to hear a group with a more forceful tack.
