“Odd” by Descarado

As stoner rock gets more international, Sweden’s Descarado offers us an addition to the genre that could have been written in Palm Desert in 1992. “Odd” hits just the right notes to evoke the desert rock we love so much.

“Rock n Roll Holocaust” by The Archaic Revival

The eight songs on Rock n Roll Holocause are full of fun filth. There are so many crunchy, groovy riffs here, powering vocal melodies that drip with self-confidence. The album liner notes instruct the listener to “Take drugs and worship Satan, rock n rollers!!!” Everyone’s having fun at this party.
