Hump Day Freebie: RoadkillSoda – Space Echo & Time

hump-day-freeb
You’ve made it through half of the work week! For that reason, you deserve a reward. What better way to reward yourself than with a new album? Better yet, a FREE album. That ought to make up for your week so far. Okay, maybe not, but it does make the pill easier to swallow, even if only slightly.

Today’s freebie is: RoadkillSoda's Space Echo & Time.

The sodas have to stick together in this dog-eat-dog world we live in! The stoner/sludge band switches things up with an acoustic album. Make no mistake, the album is still very much heavy. It's also worth your time to download.

Today’s freebie is: It's Not Night: It's Space's Bowing Not Knowing to What.

The first full-length from this doomy, droney, spacey, psychedelic stoner trio is one of those albums that makes you scratch your head about why it's free to download. They also have their second pressing of the album on LP at a great price. Download, listen, and then realize you need the vinyl in your life.

Today's album — Bison Machine's Hoarfrost.

I've been following fellow Michiganders, Bison Machine, for a few years now, but it really kicked off when I saw them open for Truckfighters when they played in Detroit. Hoarfrost is their latest and greatest, and my favorite album from 2015. You could always read my review of the album, but listening to it may e preferable…

What's up with all of the older albums? Well, I've been on a bit of a nostalgia kick lately. Plus, everyone needs to be reminded from time to time about a great album. Witch's self-titled kicks off with one of my favorite songs of all time. And no, J Mascis can do no wrong.

Today's album — Simon Magus's The First Year of Catastrophe.

Leaning towards the doomy side of things, Simon Magus is heavy rock with a groove. What draws me to them, specifically, is how they hit on several bands that I've had a fondness for over the time. The music feels a bit like Warp Riders from The Sword mixed with Black Pyramid, and the Wes Allen's vocals have been some of my favorite since The Highgears.

Free-kin' Weekend: Downriver – Downriver

Free-kin' Weekend

In the name of all that is (un)holy, it's the weekend! It's time for beer, music, more beer, and more music. With that bar tab you're racking up, you have less and less money to spend on music; I know the feeling. That's why you get a second dosage of free music, so crack open another beer (or pour yourself another glass), and download this gem.

My offering to you is Downriver's Downriver. I was going through old backups of files and through some old The Soda Shop spreadsheets of albums, and I came across this band I couldn't remember. Did a search, found their albums on Bandcamp, and now I see why I put them on a list. Continue reading Free-kin' Weekend: Downriver – Downriver

Today's album — Palm Desert's Pearls from the Muddy Hollow.

This album has to be one of my favorites from recent memory. This fuzzy, psychedelic album had me hooked. Almost as gorgeous as the music itself is the colored vinyl… which you can still get (ONLY 2 remaining left to buy on their Bandcamp page at the time of this post).

This is some dirty, and I mean dirty, psychedelic blues. Lord Vapour plays it fuzzy, and it's good. Very good. This is easily one of the best releases for 2016.

Europe doesn't have complete control over the best psychedelic stoner rock. These Argentinians prove this with their self-titled album from 2007. I rediscovered this gem recently, and you should, too.
