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 (more…)

Daily Bandcamp Album – Wo Fat – Noche del Chupacabra

Tearing through the speakers like a swamp monster summoned from some dark cosmic morass, Texas riffmasters Wo Fat unapologetically blast out a southern fried, blues-infused version of Psychedelic Doom, conjuring up visions of hoodoo shacks, prowling undead, hell hounds at the crossroads, Lovecraftian cultists and ghouls, and worlds beyond where the riff reigns almighty.
Wo Fat rose from the deep and began their psychedelic quest circa 2003 when guitarist Kent Stump formed the band with drummer Michael Walter and bassist Tim Wilson. Their goal was to create a music that is crushingly heavy, but that stays within the paradigm forged by Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, ZZ Top and the other 70’s greats. A music that allows for improvisational freedom, extensive jamming and interplay between the three members yet that, at the same time, allows them to crank out monolithic, fuzzed out, downtuned riffs, all the while staying true to the haunting blues that wail and moan deep within their souls.

Review – Greenleaf – Nest of Vipers

One of the first Small Stone Records bands that I instantly fell in love with has returned. This is a band is exactly what the doctor ordered so many years ago, and I’m still being given a prescription to this day. Of course, this is a band that is in need of no introductions, but who doesn’t appreciate the build-up, anyway? Greenleaf, the Swedish stoner ‘supergroup’, if you will, is back after yet another change in lineup, and the band blends seamlessly as ever. It’s been an agonizingly long 5 years since they last released new material, but it looks like the new material was well worth the wait. (more…)

JP Gastor of Clutch To Drum on New Five Horse Johnson Album

A recent Facebook status update from Small Stone Records had this to say:

We have some very big news… Five Horse Johnson will begin recording their new album with J. Robbins (remember Jawbox) tweaking the knobs at his studio sometime in March. Also, JP from Clutch will behind the drum kit on said recordings. The plan is to have the album finished by June, but it is Five Horse Johnson after all, so you never really know for sure.

JP drummed on the band’s 2006 release, The Mystery Spot.

For some of you this old news, as we have already let the cat out of the bag on Facebook for a few of these… But for those of you who prefer to get your information the old fashioned way, we have quite a few new acts that have just joined the Small Stone Family.

Please welcome: New Hampshire’s Supermachine (two ex-Scissorfight boys, and two boys you are most likely not all that hip to), Dallas, TX’s Wo Fat (who have mastered the fine art of fusing early Sabbath riffs with the soul and swagger of the deep south), Connecticut’s Lord Fowl (who make (more…)
