Glibness inspired by futility

Listening to: Wasteland by Destinio Entierro


I have found another band that has that sound that's rather hard to get tired of. I have been playing their live album for the better part of a week or something and still don't want to turn it off, but I guess I shouldn't overdo it because I don't want it to get old. The band is called Egypt and they are from Fargo, ND. The best description, music-wise that I can give them is Gas Giant meets Buffalo. Heavy bluesy stoner rock that's not harsh. Not to say that I dislike harsh music by ANY means. It's great music to listen to while barreling down a country road in the summer and it even functions well for long drives and background music. I highly recommend this for anyone who likes good music.

Get outta my way or I might shove

Listening to: Coda Maestoso in F(flat) Minor- Earth

Holy shit I never realized how good of an album this was! I'm talking about Pentastar: In the Style of Demons by Earth. It's not so much that I didn't realize it as it is that I have actually never listened to this album, I've only heard a few songs from it! With me being such a fan of Earth and the Drone genre I can't believe that happened. This album is so god damned good I can't really fathom how I haven't been listening to it seeing as how it came out in '96! The first track, "Peace in Mississippi" evokes Hendrix with a decidedly Earth feel to it. So simple and so good, it needs nothing more. What made me think about this album was a car show that I went to over the weekend. There were some Ferraris there (awesome) and some nice old Camaros that were in tip top shape. After shooting the Camaros it reminded me of the album cover to Pentastar.
