Yellow & Green reunites Baroness with Blue Record producer John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, St. Vincent, Xiu Xiu) following both the band’s busiest period (multiple worldwide tours including stops at Coachella, Bonnaroo and Soundwave) and most luxurious year, having taken nearly all of 2011 off to freely write and demo for the 2CD/LP album.

Conan are one the UK’s leading sonic destroyers in all things heavy. Their tone is something which is so thick you could inhabit it. There are probably a network of caves and tunnels in their tone, it’s that big and earthy. So on record it’s heavy, live, it’s an entirely different experience. It heaves like the tide, dragging the audience in and then rushing out scattering arms and legs into the sand.
To read our recent review of Conan’s newest gargantuan full length Monnos, head HERE, it is truly brilliant.
I was lucky enough to see Conan on Sunday, with the great Serpent Venom in support and while I was there I took a few photos of which you can after the jump. Enjoy!

This all comes in addition to the previously announced forthcoming BLACK COBRA tour actions including supporting Corrosion of Conformity through Europe alongside Zoroaster in April on the way to the annual Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland directly before the new tour, as well as massive North American tour supporting COC once again, along with Torche and Gaza later in the Summer.

Sounding like Cream on a heady mixture of acid and amphetamines, Radio Moscow will detonate your mind with one listen to their third album “The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz”. – Terrascope Rumbles
Nothing succeeds like excess and Radio Moscow deserve a shedload of it. Success, that is. An old-style power trio with an overload of psychedelic headspace, they’re structured around guitarist Parker Griggs whose exemplary six-string work carves sonic holes. – i94 Bar
