Your Desert Vibe Dose !
How is the sound ?
After 2 bands with a high “Purple Haze Level” let’s return on the desert road bordered with cactus, DSW is another Italian Stoner Rock band under the Acid Cosmonauts Records roster. This fabulous LP was released in 2012, and it’s still a pleasure to get back to it !
The fuzz is greasy, the riffs are thick, the vocals have that John Garcia aggressiveness and melodic style, yeah well-executed riffage, exactly what you’re waiting for when in need of your daily dose..!
But Wait ! This is just one part of what defines DSW. I’m talking about this band today, because they’re more than just heavy riffs, their psychedelic side is also phenomenal ! 3 songs have the “Instrumental Jam Session” mention in this LP, 3 songs dedicated to let your mind go and take a deep breath between the more rocking & groovy ones.
And the best of all comes when they blend this psychedelic atmosphere with burning riffs in the same song ! Take the mighty “Lonely Coyote” or “Rise“, both are killer tunes, showing that DSW understood how to play good, very good Stoner Rock !
Why is this album worth listening ?
- You enjoy Palm Desert, Kyuss, Burn The Sun ? You’ll love DSW !
- Every ingredient of what makes a killer Stoner Rock album is here, difficult to be disappointed.
In what situation you should listen to this album ?
When you just need to feel that Stoner vibe you fell in love with when you first heard all those bands cited above !
Something particular to note ?
Hope they’ll release something soon, they seem a bit dead, but who knows what 2015 will be made of 😉
