Stoner Rock LP Review: Legends Of The Desert- 12" (Azure Blue Vinyl lim. 200)

Genre: Stoner Rock
Release Date: May 11, 2018
Label: H42 Records
Legends Of The Desert- 12" is classic stoner rock captured on limited edition azure blue vinyl and various other colors.  The vinyl is beautiful and if your favorite color happens to be blue your eyes will be smiling.  The colorful art work of the LP cover is eye-catching as well. Maybe that may not be a relevant aspect of music for some people however I look at the entire package and enjoy it to the fullest.

This music is in relation to the Desert Fest. And it is music that matches my taste buds just fine. In addition to being a collector of vinyl, especially limited-edition colored vinyl, I do like to actually play the music and enjoy it rather than putting it away to keep it all minty fresh with hopes of cashing in on some poor sap that just has to have the LP.

The artist featured on this platter are as follows:
Fatso Jetson, Yawning Sons, Waterways and a solo project under the direction of Mario Lalli & Mathias Schneeberger.

This is great instrumental rock music, with the exception of the opening track, “Semi Lost” by Fatso Jetson, that has some good vocals. Why wouldn’t anyone want to listen to a band with a name like that? If even just out of curiosity! Well, they are good even though they have a decidedly different albeit funny name.

A lot of this music is very twangy with effects, just a bit similar to surf music in my estimation, but a lot heavier (not heavy as metal) and a lot more complex of course. This is just cool stuff that doesn’t last nearly long enough! That is a compliment, not a take away.

The B side offers up two brilliant instrumental jams that will leave an impression on you and I bet you will be seeking out more from these bands once you hear these tracks.  I know I am very interested in exploring more and if you are a fan of stoner rock this is a must-have.

For those of you interested, I checked out the Bandcamp page where this is listed and it said there are only 5 copies left! You can get it for $18 plus shipping from there or pay double that on Amazon. Just a helpful hint if you want to grab a copy.

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018 http://ghost-official.com


With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…
