New Small Stone Records Releases

Here’s a few updates from Small Stone Records regarding a few upcoming releases.

The first is Abrahma
Through The Dusty Paths Of Our Lives

Just the name Paris evokes thoughts of romance. From tiny streetside cafes serving cafe au lait and fresh croissants to the breathtaking
panoramic view as seen from atop the Eiffel Tower, the city simply oozes love. Thankfully the city of love also has a darker side. One
just as dedicated to love, just love of a different kind. Love of all things heavy and all things rock. And that’s the real Paris the one
where Abrahma lives.

Formed in 2005 under the moniker Alcohsonic, this Parisian quartet epitimized the ideals of Rock and Roll. Blending the classic
American 70’s sound with blues, southern roots and just a hint of the modern Seb Bismuth, Nicolas Heller and the brothers Colin
attempted to set Europe on fire. Their flame burned hot but far too bright and after five years, one LP and a scathing trail of live shows
sharing the stage with the likes of Brant Bjork and Cactus, their course was run. But like a pheonix rising from it’s own ashes
Alcohsonic has been reborn as Abrahma.

“Through The Dusty Paths Of Our Lives” is a self made monument to what might have been and an explosive first example what is yet
to come. Five years on the road has hardened the sound and forged the new songs like iron in flame. Gone are any hints of 70’s
revivalism, buried beneath thick sludgy riffs and thundering basslines. Six hands play as one with the voice of an angry angel lighting
the way. Featuring a guest appearance by Ed Mundell (Monster Magnet) and artwork designed by Alexander von Wieding “Through
The Dusty Paths Of Our Lives” is a once in a lifetime debut. Catch a glimpse before the sparks begin to fly.

    I am a HUGE fan of Small Stone Records. Anyone with a stoner or doom bone in their body should be. I keep wondering when we might see an article on two of the best bands (IMO) on the label; The Brought Low and/or Five Horse Johnson.

    Both are awesome, blues based, rock and roll bands. Got to see 5 horse open for Clutch a few years ago….. DAMN! Havent seen Brought Low yet as they dont leave NY area much.

    Dont know about Abrahma but Sons of Otis is real rock n roll, a must check out.

      You’ll be hearing more on 5 Horse Johnson in the next few months. They took a bit of a break but are in the process of recording their next album. Due out this fall.

      As far as the Brought Low, they are a bit of a low key band. Their 3rd album came out about 2 years ago with an EP last year. A new album should be in the cards soon enough
