Mothership - High Strangeness

Monday, New Week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"High Strangeness" is the third full-length album by the Texas, Dallas trio MOTHERSHIP. The album was released March 17th.

"High Strangeness" is a solid release from the guys where they deliver a record with an seasoned sound, great melodies, heavy riffing and very good vocals. Atmospheric stoner rock is mixed up with dusty sand boogie psychedelia and melodic riffing like the opening tune and the title track. "Ride The Sun" have a more classic upbeat sounding, excellent guitar tripping and great vocals. "Midnight Express" is a more heavier piece with driven fuzzy riffs, sounds almost like MASTODON meets KISS. "Crown Of Lies" is a old school rocker with galloping riffs (hello HEART) and a guitar driven midpart that is very melodic. "Helter Skelter" reminds of old HAWKWIND, an 70's hard rocker. "Eternal Trip" is a peaceful instrumental tune, the album ballad that hovering over the other tunes and stands out. "Wise Man", dirty riffs with a light BLACK SABBATH and ALLMAN BROTHERS touch but in more old school metal way. The album ends with the upbeat fuzzed out rocker "Speed Dealer" that breads KYUSS, a great ending tune.

A beautiful Vinyl version

Sum: "High Strangeness" is a solid album that anyone that like fresh 70's style of rock should not miss this!

Today's tune "Wise Man" taken from "High Strangeness", enjoy!
