DAily Bandcamp Album – Rokeville by The Columbines

This one is a bit different but fucking cool. The band The Columbines is from Chicago. they play some wicked blues rock mixed with a bit of old school outlaw country and even some rock-a-billy. Think of it as Chicago’s version of Five Horse Johnson.

“The Columbines arrived with a splash, riding a flaming wicker bunny that fell from the sky into the icy waters of Lake Michigan. They play songs about love, songs about anger, songs about angry love and lovely anger, songs with birds, bees, cars, trains, and planes, songs about the devil you know and the devil you don’t.”

Daily Bandcamp Album – Blue Venus by Venus Blue

Rock n’ roll.

“You can hear everyone from Blue Cheer to the Stooges, early Pentagram, and smatterings of hardcore punk. Venus Blue describe themselves as a band with a “unique sound” that “boggles the mind”. They’re not wrong.”
-Chybucca Sounds


Daily Bandcamp Album – Salvation by Desert Lord

Desert Lord are a stoner sludge/doom metal band from Helsinki. They have 2 track EP available with is FUCKING Kick ass. Heavy and gruffy vocals mixed with some crushing instruments make for a highly enjoyable listen.


Daily Bandcamp Album – Calling All Demons by Moonless

There’s worse places to start, than to play your debut show opening for Japanese serial-killer obsessed CHURCH OF MISERY. Then again, since MOONLESS also later on did gigs with SAINT VITUS, PENTAGRAM and UFOMAMMUT and are about to unleash their brilliant debut on DOOMENTIA, one could say this was just a beginning…
The band started in Copenhagen, Denmark back in 2008 by people who cut their teeth in the local punkscene throughout the 00’s in bands such as No Hope For The Kids, Hjertestop, Amdi Petersens Armé and Village Idiot. People in the know will acknowledge these were important bands helping to put Denmark back on the international map of underground music.

‘Calling All Demons’ is accompanied by mindblowing coverart by Tue S. and the songs on this debut album are nothing short of a triumph, ready to step up at the top of the mountain of bodies that used to be called the stoner scene. It’s both old school yet fresh sounding slow bonecrushin’ rock’n’roll. Pure primal testosterone sludge done the right way, the MOONLESS way.

Daily Bandcamp Album – Gift Horse – Mountain of Youth

“Filled with heavy, exploding drum beats and a magical, ethereal blending of guitar, bass, and keys, Gift Horse has the ability to draw you in, capture your mind, and compel your imagination. Their songs carry menacing undertones and floating vocals that at once pick you up and mellow you out. Each melody offers a climax, backed by raging cymbals, which give way to atmospheric organ tones preparing you for the next climax and back around again.” – The Silver Tongue

I tell you thise is different and pretty fricking sweet. Think Weird Owl, meets Hopewell meets The Main Street Gospel. That’s kinda what Gift Horse’s sound is all about. Nice psychedelics and shoegaze wrapped up into one trippy ball.


Daily Bandcamp Album – The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound by Gandhi’s Gunn

The hard, strong sound impact of the Genoese (Italy) band, Gandhi’s Gunn (Hobo, vocals; Scazzi, guitar; Maso, bass; Andrea, drums), is intensely inspired by the forcible sound of the first American Stoner Rock undercurrent, such as Corrosion of Conformity, Fu Manchu and Clutch, while frequently exploring more visionary and psychedelic territories.

Considered a point of reference on the Italian Stoner Rock scene, Gandhi’s Gunn have had two years of intense live activity on stage with bands of worldwide fame such as Church of Misery (Japan), Los Natas (Argentina), Acid King (USA), Atomic Bitchwax (USA), 16 (USA), Nadja (Canada), Amen Ra (Belgium) and Clutch (USA) & more.

The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound was released less than  week ago.
