Is it pronounced Bon Gripper, or Bong Ripper?
JFC this thread is an embarrassment. Particular congratulations to whoever suggested The Orb and Robin Trower were stoner rock.
Sons of Alpha Centauri have a new album out. They're from the UK but are linked to Yawning Man (they have a joint project called Yawning Sons) and Karma To Burn. They're just about stoner, but on the lighter end, and previously only used numbers instead of song titles. I like them a lot.
Continuum, by Sons of Alpha Centauri
III, by Weedpecker - my 2018 "best album i've heard this year" without a doubt. I hope these guys can get to the UK sometime soon.
Other bands / albums to check out (people have probably already mentioned some or all):
Elder - "Reflections Of a Floating World" - man this *really* kicks
Somali Yacht Club - "The Sea"
Les Lekin - "Died With Fear"
Earthless - "Black Heaven"
The Spacelords - "Water Planet"
Radio Moscow - S/T
Yawning Man - "The Revolt Against Tired Noises"
Colour Haze - "She Said" or S/T
It's strange, a couple of years ago I probably hadn't heard of most of these, funny how tastes change - its now my goto genre, if there is such a thing Hooray for Bandcamp, a lot of these can be bought from there.
Deep Purple - Machine Head LP, is a head LP
Magic Mushroom Band
recent Julian Cope
all proper stoner stuff
the Moving Sidewalks-Flash.
1969 brought a bunch of Stooges and bones...
I hated I'm Your Captain! Liked Inside Looking Out...
they had their time...
don't be embarrassed! LOL.
music to smoke by...: )
Didn't read through the whole thread (yet) because of the confusion between 'stoner rock' and 'music to enjoy while stoned' but had to add
who released a track from their upcoming album, and who's last album 'Grief's Eternal Flower' was awesome.
Druid - Paper Squares
It's pretty great because people are even trying to help by explaining what stoner rock is and someone will invariably post ZZ Top or Deep Purple directly underneath the post.
Thread needs a raging mod clearout or the plonkers will just continue seeing "oh Neil Young, yeah, I get it, stoner rock"
Post of the decade.
Nice to see this thread bumped... it's probably the one thread I know a TON about.
The new Kikagaku Moyo album is rather brahma..
Just saw them last night! Helluva show!
King Buffalo "Longing to be the Mountain"... melodic. at times quite dark and also pretty heavy, probably my favourite album so far released this year.
Waiting for my copy to come in the mail, can't wait to hear it, their earlier single sided release repeater is also really good.
My vinyl copy arrived and the quality is excellent. I went for the "none label gold" version from the band's own site.
I've got one for you: Ministry "Filth Pig". After several albums filled with high speed riffs, drum machines, and samples; Ministry came back with a (mostly) slowed down, sludgy, raw and stripped down album that captures a band in the studio.
(stick with it)
Glad this thread is still getting some action.
I recently picked up the latest Goatsnake album "Black Age Blues" and though I'm truly thankful these guys are still doing it, at first blush it's a tad disappointing. Mind you that's mainly because I was (foolishly?) expecting more of the same from them but a lot of time has passed since their last full length so to be fair I need to give it a bunch more spins before deciding.
