Crobot - Kiss It Goodbye

Central Pennsylvania old-souled, dirty groove rock quartet CROBOT are back with another sick and sinister groove for us all to dig too with their latest single, "Kiss It Goodbye" and on this tune they have invited a guest vocal from LIGHT THE TORCH's Howard Jones.

The single "Kiss It Goodbye" is featured on the upcoming "Rat Child" EP, which is due June 18 via Mascot Records along with the B side with the recently released track "Mountain" that included a guest turn from ANTHRAX's Frank Bello.

Of the new song, singer Brandon Yeagley states, “‘Kiss It Goodbye’ is a complete full-circle moment for us. We’ve idolized Howard Jones’ ability to pinpoint the perfect melody since picking up our instruments and that dude is on beast mode here. And those guitars sound like they’re right out of an Alien flick - This one is soaked in acidy-spit!”

He continues, “Howard was introduced to us through mutual friends. We have always been huge fans of his melodic footprint and his unique melodies. When we heard he would be interested in writing with us, we were beyond excited. He flew down to Austin and spent a few days in a studio with us. We had a such great chemistry with him and wrote this song. We thought it was a shoe-in for being a track on Motherbrain but for whatever reason, it didn’t make the cut. It seemed like such a travesty to let such a great song sit on the shelf. So, we’re pumped to let the world hear it now.”

Howard Jones adds, “Had a great time writing ‘Kiss It Goodbye’ with CROBOT! Their sound and energy is infectious, and there was no way I was passing up working with them. I hope you all dig it!”

Today's tune "Kiss It Goodbye" features Howard Jones of LIGHT THE TORCH and formerly of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, the tune is taken from the upcomming CROBOT Rat Child" EP, out June 18, 2021. Enjoy!

The Picturebooks - Corrina Corrina

Thursday, time for a cover.

"Corrine, Corrina" (sometimes "Corrina, Corrina") is a 12-bar country blues song in the AAB form. "Corrine, Corrina" was first recorded by Bo Carter (Brunswick 7080, December 1928). However, it was not copyrighted until 1932 by Armenter "Bo Carter" Chatmon and his publishers, Mitchell Parish and J. Mayo Williams. The song is familiar for its opening verse:

Corrine, Corrina, where you been so long?
Corrine, Corrina, where you been so long?
I ain't had no lovin', since you've been gone

The Mississippi Sheiks, as the Jackson Blue Boys with Papa Charlie McCoy on vocals, recorded the same song in 1930; this time as "Sweet Alberta" (Columbia 14397-D), substituting the words Sweet Alberta for Corrine, Corrina. "Corrine, Corrina" has been recorded in a number of musical styles, including blues, jazz, rock and roll, Cajun, and Western swing. The title of the song varies from recording to recording, most often with the variant "Corrina, Corrina".

Making friends on tour definitely pays off and the result of one of these friendships can be witnessed in another stunning collaboration between power duo THE PICTUREBOOKS and Neil Fallon from stoner rock legends CLUTCH.

Fynn and Philipp know how to keep themselves busy and after not being able to tour, they used their studio and all the excessive time and energy to realize some very challenging and fun projects!

With their new single “Corrina Corrina” they go down to where they feel most comfortable, the bare bones of the blues and joining them on this eerie trip is no other but Neil Fallon on vocals and Dave Dinsmore of Brant Bjork fame also guests on this track.

Cosmic Reaper - Hellion

North Carolina’s COSMIC REAPER comes crashing through the speakers with their self-titled debut album. Dripping with a classic 70’s attitude, mixing sci-fi-oriented lyrics, brief but satisfying moments of prog exploration, all while keeping one foot firmly planted in modern doom, you start to get an idea of the interstellar journey that awaits.

In its infancy, bass player Garrett Garlington and guitar player Dillon Prentice, together in Garrett’s kitchen, mixed heavy and fuzzy harmonies with crushing riffs. Not long after, the duo added Thad Collis. His ethereal vocals and impassioned guitar harmonies are what built the band’s foundation. Jeremy Grobsmith, a Colorado Springs metal veteran (THE GREAT REDNECK HOPE, MATTERHORN, and WORRY) had recently moved to The Queen City, befriended the guys, and was quickly asked to join. His hard-hitting and eclectic drum style rounded out the COSMIC REAPER sound and the band was born.

Following a year of practice and fine-tuning their sound, COSMIC REAPER made their live debut in July of 2019. In September of that same year, they recorded the "Demon Dance" EP at Greensboro’s recording studio The Parliament House, alongside owner and maverick Jacob Beeson. Noteworthy exposure from doom metal-focused podcasts and web-zines helped in the success of their first offering. Following the release, the band continued to perform regionally and then capitalized on the time afforded by the unfortunate shutdown of venues and they began writing their first full-length album. The band returned to Beeson’s studio in the summer of 2020 to start recording. Laden with droning riffs and downtempo walls of monolithic sound, they completed their crushing Self-titled debut full length. The start of 2021 ushers in a new and monumental era for the guys as Cosmic Reaper becomes part of the Heavy Psych Sounds family.

The heaviest elements are there and are guaranteed to move planets. The stars align and engines ignite as COSMIC REAPER claws at the soul of the genre.

Thad Collis Guitars / Vocals 
Dillon Prentice Guitars 
Garrett Garlington Bass

Today's tune "Hellion" is the first single taken from the COSMIC REAPER self-titled debut album. It was released March 19, 2021, via Heavy Psych Sounds, enjoy!

Eyehategod - A History Of Nomadic Behavior

Monday, time for us to introduce "Record Of The Week"

The New Orleans sludge lords EYEHATEGOD is back after a long break of seven years. It has been a long, long wait for fans of the NOLA sludge metal, luckily with their sixth album, making a comeback of sorts, it's with great delight "A History Of Nomadic Behavior" given a good return and the result was worth the wait for the dusty, almost forgotten EYEHATEGOD.

EYEHATEGOD is know for been a soundtrack for the troubled masses, survivor’s music, you know, dirty and bad music for bad and dirty times. It really is something this time too. EYEHATEGOD follows the same blueprint since they founded the band in 1988.

"A History Of Nomadic Behavior" revels in all the usual EYEHATEGOD themes—desperation, depression, poverty, addiction—but, as Williams is quick to point out, the songs aren’t necessarily about anything. From the opening "Built Beneath The Lies", the lurching Sabbathian riffs are meted out with righteous, snarling fury shows immediately that that EYEHATEGOD hasn’t slowed or mellowed with time but with Mike Williams caustic anger, broken-limbed riffs by Jimmy Bower, Aaron Hill's filthy snappy drums, Gary Mader hard-hitting bass strings. The path of how things are going to be is set and this continues with chugging riffs in "The Outer Banks", a tune where you simply get run over. Followed by the bombastic "Fake What’s Yours" and the more abstract "Three Black Eyes". Squeaky, messy, and beech begins the punkish "Current Situation" where the frustration seeps through the heavy riffs. "High Risk Trigger" is a marvelous piece about "triggered as an addict". "The Trial Of Johnny Cancer" opens up with some spoken word, a half-paced piece with some lyrics like "I’d rather be a corpse than a coward". This followed by a small surprise in "Smoker’s Piece", a bluesy jazz number with shuffling drums, picked guitar and walking bass. "Circle Of Nerves" features spiraling, descending guitar licks, and abusive rhythm breaks. Some dentists squeaky guitar sound opens up the album closer "Every Thing, Every Day" with the lyrics "Kill your boss" over and over! Thirty-three years into a career of debauchery, abuse, and dirt, a global pandemic, and they are still broke, so it is absolutely incredible that EYEHATEGOD is here at all where many others have dissolved and withered away. EYEHATEGOD earns my respect for surviving and continue to playing and committing hard. They are

Sum: "A History Of Nomadic Behavior" is a welcome return.

Lead vocalist Mike IX Williams said of the album: "During this recording, I thought a lot about how stupid humanity has become and how America is now completely divided with these people who don't believe in science and blindly follow liars and nonsensical ideologies. Some of those feelings may have found their way into these songs, but it is mostly subliminal."

Today's tune "Circle Of Nerves" is taken from "A History Of Nomadic Behavior" which was released March 12, 2021.

Sonic Youth - 100%

Sunday, time for a classic.

"100%" is the first single from SONIC YOUTH's 1992 album "Dirty". It was released in 1992 on DGC. The song was dedicated to the band's friend Joe Cole, who was killed by a gunman in 1991. The lyrics were written by Thurston Moore.

The music video for "100%" was directed by Tamra Davis and Spike Jonze, and shot in Los Angeles. Much of the video footage was shot by Jonze while riding on a skateboard, following others in the streets (including then-skateboarder, now-actor Jason Lee). The video also alluded to the shooting death of Cole, but is not specifically about him, and more about friendship between two skateboarders. SONIC YOUTH is shown playing a house party throughout the film. Kim Gordon plays a yellow Fender bass guitar, which she borrowed from actor Keanu Reeves.

SONIC YOUTH was an American rock band based in New York City, formed in 1981. Founding members Thurston Moore (guitar, vocals), Kim Gordon (bass, vocals, guitar) and Lee Ranaldo (guitar, vocals) remained together for the entire history of the band, while Steve Shelley (drums) followed a series of short-term drummers in 1985, rounding out the core line-up. Jim O'Rourke (bass, keyboards, guitar) was also a member of the band from 1999 to 2005.

Enjoy today's classic!

Khruangbin - Pretty Boys

Hailed upon its release last year as "vital and comfortable taking new chances” (Rolling Stone) and “cheery, resilient, forever looking forward” (The New Yorker), Paul McCartney’s "McCartney III", which topped album charts across the world, is now literally moving into the future in the form of "McCartney III" Imagined.

Personally curated by Paul, "McCartney III Imagined" features an A-List assortment of friends, fans and brand new acquaintances, each covering and/or reimagining their favorite "McCartney III" moments in their own signature styles. The result is a kaleidoscopic reinterpretation of an album Rolling Stone accurately tagged “an inspiration to us all”—one that serves as an extension of the instantly beloved "McCartney III" while standing on its own as brilliant and adventurous milestone in the McCartney discography.

"McCartney III Imagined" – Out now to stream/buy on digital platforms and available to pre-order on CD, Vinyl and more 🎲: https://PaulMcCartney.lnk.to/3Imagined

Domkraft - Dawn Of Man

Swedish psychedelic riff-doom trio DOMKRAFT are back with a new single and a upcoming album "Seeds".

Like a phoenix, DOMKRAFT rise from the ashes of their previous apocalyptic-themed albums with third full-length "Seeds". On the upcoming album "Seeds" the trio focuses on the idea of emerging from the ruins to start anew, building something different and better beyond the cataclysm. In the midst of 2020's summer heatwave, the Swedes headed to Welfare Sounds Studio in Gothenburg for three days to nail down a new epic that feels raw and alive with studio heads Kalle Lilja and Per Stålberg. With due credit to the mixing wizardry of Karl Daniel Lidén (GREENLEAF, KATATONIA, LOWRIDER), DOMKRAFT's trademark heft is more prominent than ever, and the ambitious lyrical themes add context to the always-massive riffs and hypnotizing flow. Originally, DOMKRAFT bonded over a mutual love for SPACEMEN 3, MONSTER MAGNET, SLEEP, and HAWKWIND among others. Drawing from the heaviest of their combined influences, the trio from Stockholm crafted a sound that blends towering dirges, mind-bending psychedelia, and hypnotic minimalism, which is embodied by their monolithic 2016 debut album "The End of Electricity" and 2018 follow-up "Flood". With "Seeds", DOMKRAFT have drawn a detailed map to a groove-driven heavy rock utopia, where humankind can evolve and unite. Better living through monolithic volume!

With live shows obviously a distant pipe dream at the moment, the trio wanted to recreate the experience of one of their performances with, uh, some chemical assistance. Success! Prepare to experience some mind-melting, hypnotic riffs for four minutes and forty four seconds.

Singer/bassist Martin Wegeland has this to say about the song:

“’Dawn of Man’ is the sound of the physical rebuilding of human civilization. We need new places of worship, cleansed of fear, hate and everything else that corrodes a society. So, the idea is a kind of modern pyramids, utopian ‘audiodomes,’ and this song represents the construction phase of these. We went for a mechanical yet earthy feel, based on this rolling, neck-breaking drum beat that just keeps moving. It should feel like being in the middle of a crowd full of clenched fists wielding sledgehammers, unable to stand still.”

"Seeds" will be released on April 30 via Magnetic Eye Records but you can pre-order it here.

Enjoy today's tune "Dawn Of Man", taken from the upcoming album "Seeds"!

The Black Keys - Crawling Kingsnake

On May 14, THE BLACK KEYS releases their tenth studio album, "Delta Kream", via Nonesuch Records. The record celebrates the band’s roots, featuring eleven Mississippi hill country blues standards that they have loved since they were teenagers, before they were a band, including songs by R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, among others.

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney recorded "Delta Kream" at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville; they were joined by musicians Kenny Brown and Eric Deaton, long-time members of the bands of blues legends including R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. The album takes its name from William Eggleston’s iconic Mississippi photograph that is on its cover.

Today's tune "Crawling Kingsnake" is a blues song that has been recorded by numerous blues and other artists. It is believed to have originated as a Delta blues in the 1920s and be related to earlier songs, such as "Black Snake Blues" by Victoria Spivey and "Black Snake Moan" by Blind Lemon Jefferson.

As "Crawling King Snake", it was first recorded by Big Joe Williams on March 27, 1941. The song is a country-style blues, with Williams on vocal and nine-string guitar and William Mitchell providing imitation bass accompaniment. On June 3, 1941, Delta bluesman Tony Hollins recorded "a markedly different version", which served as the basis for many subsequent versions.

John Lee Hooker began performing "Crawling King Snake" early in his career and included it in his sets after arriving in Detroit, Michigan in the early 1940s. In an interview, Hooker explained that he adapted Tony Hollins' song: "I got that 'Crawling King Snake' from him". Hooker first recorded the song in Detroit on February 18, 1949 for producer Bernard Besman. When it was released by Los Angeles-based Modern Records, "Crawling King Snake" became one of Hooker's most successful singles, reaching number six on the Billboard R&B chart in 1949. Hooker recorded several subsequent versions of the song, including one with Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards for Hooker's 1991 album Mr. Lucky.

The video for “Crawling Kingsnake” was directed by Tim Hardiman and filmed at Jimmy Duck Holmes’ Blue Front CafĂ©, which is the oldest active juke joint in America.

Dan Auerbach says: “We were honored to play alongside Kenny Brown and Eric Deaton, who are a direct link to R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. This is the Mississippi hill country sound that Pat and I first bonded over.”

Vinyl variants for Delta Kream include a standard black double vinyl and an exclusive Purple Haze vinyl. Pre-order now from the Official Shop: https://TheBlackKeys.lnk.to/DeltaKream

Greta Van Fleet - The Battle At Garden’s Gate

Monday, new week and it's time to present "Record Of The Week".

GRETA VAN FLEET’s debut, "Anthem Of The Peaceful Army", was rather eclipsed by all the comparisons with LED ZEPPELIN. Now the the Michigan four-piece rockers are back with the sophomore "The Battle At Garden’s Gate", an album with high anticipation knockin on the door.

Well, will they meet it? Hell yeah, this is a more mature GRETA VAN FLEET and yes the ZEPPELIN still flows in the veins and yes this is freaking good. "The Battle At Garden’s Gate" have twelve tunes with a play time of one hour and 3 minutes. The album was released April 16th, 2021 by Lava/Republic Records.

The album opens up with "Heat Above" and gives the listener a first taste of what to come and will be a recurring theme throughout the album, powerful and bombastic with huge choruses and soundscape, organs and a high pitched and wide vocal range, and a big creative mind to show that the three Kiszka brothers and the drummer Danny Wagner can stand on their own legs and no need for the support wheels any longer. That the two brothers Josh and Jake takes alot of space with the special vocal voice and performance and the magical guitar tones, but they got an excellent support by a punchy rhythm duo of Wagner and Sam. The bluesy piece "My Way, Soon" is a great guitar rocker that is more direct and harder. On the 3rd tune something happens, the half paced ballad "Broken Bells" is really beautiful, Josh sings a little more down toned and caresses the notes in a magnificent way, and the guitar playing is completely frigging magical, so neat. This continues on "Built By Nations", a tune that seems to have a riff that Jimmy Page lost somewhere on the road back in the day when creativity was in full bloom. Beside that it's a wonderful piece where all four serves us as a listner a real killer of a tune, the guitar playing is amazing, the thick bass licks and the drummming pattern are crunchy and well executed, all this topped by powerful vocal. The following tune, "Age Of Machine", is a powerful one, maybe the star on the album where they mixes psychedelic and hypnotic passages with blues-rock arrangements with more complex structures and a big chorus that gives goosebumps. "Tears Of Rain" is an another half paced beauty, opens up with acoustic guitars and then it's all Josh wide vocal range, and the heartfelt performance that triumphs the tune. "Stardust Chords" is an pleasantly surprise, full of energy, amazing guitar and killer chorus with a garden theme. "Light My Love" is another slightly slower song until the RUSH riffing pice "Caravel" enters the arena where Josh really gets to excel with his singing voice. "The Barbarians" is a pretty cool rocker where the wah wah guitar comes in focus, a tune that grows on every spin. "Trip The Light Fantastic" is a tune where he sings "Away from the world we have riddled with scars", powerful chours and amazing vocals. The album closes up with "The Weight Of Dreams" an almost nine minute beautiful thing, almost like a full body massage, big and powerful, and the guitars just blow me away, this is amazingly done, I just love it and I am so happy.

To sum this up, "The Battle At Garden’s Gate" is a excellent example of a great rock and roll album with a musical craftmanship that is just stunning and they exploring new territories and their identity, giving glimpses of their potential in the process.

Sum: It’s a wonderful, comprehensive rock 'n roll record that you need to get!

GRETA VAN FLEET are:
Joshua Kiszka / Vocals
Jacob Kiszka / Guitar
Samuel Kiszka / Bass, Keys
Daniel Wagner / Drums

Today's tune "Heat Above" is the opening tune from the new album "The Battle At Garden’s Gate", enjoy!

Big Mama Thornton - Ball And Chain

Sunday, time for a classic.

Big Mama Thornton, was an American rhythm-and-blues singer and songwriter. She was the first to record Leiber and Stoller's "Hound Dog", in 1952, which became her biggest hit, staying seven weeks at number one on the Billboard R&B chart in 1953 and selling almost two million copies. Thornton's other recordings included the original version of "Ball and Chain", which she wrote.

Today's tune "Ball And Chain" is a blues song written and recorded by American blues artist Big Mama Thornton. Although her recording did not appear on the record charts, the song has become one of Thornton's best-known, largely due to performances and recordings by Janis Joplin.

In the early 1960s,Thornton recorded several songs for Bay-Tone Records. Two were released on a single, "You Did Me Wrong" and "Big Mama's Blues".A review by Billboard magazine noted "moderate sales potential", but it did not enter the magazine's R&B single chart. According to music writer Gillian Gaar, Thornton also recorded "Ball And Chain" for Bay Tone, although it was never released.

In 1968, Arhoolie Records released "Ball And Chain". An edited version, titled "Ball And Chain Part 1" was released as a single, while the complete four and a half minute song is included on a joint album by Thornton, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Larry Williams titled "Ball And Chain". Thornton is backed by a small combo with her frequent guitar accompanist Edward "Bee" Houston. She later recorded several live and studio performances of the song, included her 1969 Billboard Top 200 album "Stronger Than Dirt".

Today's version of "Ball And Chain" is Big Mama Thornton with Buddy Guy's Blues Band. Enjoy!

Fu Manchu - Working Man

Thursday, time for a cover. "Working Man" is a song by rock band RUSH from their self-titled debut album. In an interview on the Rolling Stone youtube channel, bassist and lead vocalist Geddy Lee said that "Working Man" is his favorite song to play live."Working Man" became a favourite among RUSH fans; the guitar solo appeared on Guitar World magazine's 100 Greatest Guitar Solos list.

Like all of the songs on the band's first album, the song features original drummer John Rutsey, who was replaced by Neil Peart in 1974. On the 1976 live album "All the World's a Stage", the song segues into "Finding My Way" and a drum solo by Peart. After not being performed live for most of the 1980s and 1990s, it returned to RUSH's setlists during the 2002 "Vapor Trails" Tour. With the exception of the 2007-08 "Snakes & Arrows" Tour, the song appeared on every live setlist through the "R40 Live" Tour of 2015, the band's last. It was included on the live albums and videos of the tours in which it was used, except for "Clockwork Angels" Tour; for "R40 Live", it was played as part of a medley with "What You're Doing" and ended with a snippet of "Garden Road," a song from the band's early catalog.

All Proceeds will benefit Brain Tumor Research at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in his memory.

Cory and Ty have decided to release the much anticipated single "She's a Beam", along with "Milk Bird Flyer". Both songs were recorded 5 years ago, and were recently rediscovered. They will be donating 100% of the first week's sales of both songs to Black Lives Matter LA. The single was released February 7, 2021.

Unfurling like a five-minute jam-out session, “She’s a Beam” sees Segall and Hanson working pure psychedelic magic. For about 90 seconds we hear some foggy vocals, but the rest is dedicated to the two musicians playing off one another with their respective guitars.

Today's clip with Ty Segall & Cory Hanson performing "She Is A Beam" live on the Logging Road at Pickathon. Recorded August 2, 2015.

Wheel - Preserved In Time

Monday, a new week and it's time to present "Record Of The Week".

WHEEL is a german Traditional Doom Metal band that was formed in 2006 in Dortmund, Germany.

And now after eight years, they are back with their third album "Preserved In Time" on the label Cruz del Sur. An album that gets you back to the prime time of the true, epic doom of the highest order in the vein of CANDLEMASS, SOLITUDE AETURNUS, and TROUBLE!

"Preserved In Time" is a forty-eight-minute, seven songs with an epic length of slo-mo, emotional doom that gets to be an early favorite of another shitty year! As on this record, the long creation time is well spent, as they feel so much stronger and doomier than ever before and that can clearly be heard on the opening tune "At Night They Came Upon Us", where the slowly-grinding wagon wheel by Benjamin Homberger guitar, the thick bass line Marcus Grabowski and the tight and well-swinging drummer Carsten Jercke and the fabulous vocals by Arkadius Kurek. The high key in Kurek's vocal gives crawling goosebumps and high low key is smooth as silk where its clearly can be heard in "When The Shadow Takes You Over", a half paced ballad-like with a melancholic vibe, beautiful harmonies, marvelous vocals, I can just stand up and clap my hands. Thundering drum playing by Jercke is served in "After All", a tune that flows in a more mournful way in a big space. In "She Left In Silence" we get another powerful piece, big chorus, a swirling solo by Homberger glowing guitar. "Aeon Of Darkness" follows the powerful and epic way, acoustic guitar slings are added to spicy up this melodic piece a bit, truly wonderful in all its way. The dramatic "Hero Of The Weak", shows up another side of the band with a more modern presentation with some guttural vocals parts. The album closes up with the glorious nine minutes "Daedalus" that floating between heavy bass riffs, hard-hitting drums, crunching guitar riff and swirling solos, to a more shimmering and more withdrawn way, but oh so beautiful part where the vocals caress the drums and the guitar and bass plays easily until it's time to let loose again, totally mind-blowing!

"Preserved In Time" is an excellent traditional doom delight, a true gem, a record that I highly recommend to check up!

WHEEL consists of:
Benjamin Homberger (guitars),
Marcus Grabowski (bass),
Arkadius Kurek (vocals),
Carsten Jercke (drums)

Sum: Preserved In Time is the strongest doom album so far, 2021!

Today's tune "She Left In Silence", taken from "Preserved In Time", released April 9, 2021, by Cruz Del Sur.
