Top 20 of 2011 – Bill’s Picks

Well it’s that time of year again. Time to name my favorite albums of 2011. 2011 brought us a lot of good stuff by a lot of great bands. 2011 also brought on a lot of surprises from bands that were really unknown until their material was released or well afterwards. Bandcamp played a huge role in music discovery for me. It turned out hundreds of great albums not only released in 2011 but in years past as well. This list, my favorites as well as honorable mentions, is no way a complete list of what was released this year. There is just to much out there that I don’t either have time to get to, never heard of or won’t discover until well after this year is completely over. I know there’s going to be a few surprises. Let it be known that I listened to a LOT of new albums this year and picking my top 20 out of the hundreds was very hard to do.

20. The Sade – Damned Love – (review) I really didn’t know what to expect when this one came across my desk but I needed to check it out. And check it out I did. I was pretty damn impressed that I listened to the album at least 10 times in a row. In my review I stated “The majority of the album is all alchchol fueled hard rock. Throughout my listening of the album I couldn’t help but think that this is what Social Distortion may sound like if they were more rooted in 70′s hard rock as opposed to their punk roots.” Granted it’s been a few months since I’ve listened to it, it still has a strong spot in my top 20.

An Interview with Tony Presedo – Founder of Tee Pee Records

Written By Ian Gerber for The Soda Shop

Sometimes you don’t know what you can get if you don’t ask. I was surprised that a busy guy like Tony Presedo would have time for me. I came into a knowledge of who he is and what he has done through watching the documentary ‘Such Hawks Such Hounds’ just a few months ago. When I started digging for information on him, I was surprised at how fundamental his hard work really has been to establishing the genre we all love and have come to know as “Stoner Rock”. Whether it was his vision to help release the now monumental and then buried Sleep record, Dopesmoker, or his knack for putting together a roster of heavy hitting bands that include Nebula, The Atomic Bitchwax, and High on Fire, there is one thing for certain… Tony Presedo knows what the fuck Stoner Rock is. After unceremoniously getting the boot in 2008 as the head of Tee Pee Records, the company that he built from the ground up, Tony has taken the time to re-group and re-build his love of all things music. Mr. Presedo graciously gave me some of his time to answer my questions in an effort to help us all know where Stoner Rock came from and where it is going. It went like this…

Review – The Atomic Bitchwax – The Local Fuzz

WOW! That’s all I can say. To quote a popular Thin Lizzy song, “The Boys Are Back In Town.” The Atomic Bitchwax are returning with their latest album called The Local Fuzz, due out April 26th from Tee Pee Records. This is their fifth studio album. The Local Fuzz is a little bit of a different step from past material. They kept their trademark sound but instead of multiple songs ranging from 3-8 minutes each, The Local Fuzz is one 42 minute instrumental track. It is a fuzz enthusiasts dream album. The album is very heavy and fuzzy throughout with some spacey and psychedelic moments and some classic and blues rock moments. It’s filled to the rim with riff after riff. There’s a moment where one portion instantly reminded me  of (more…)
