Our 70s Style Stoner playlist has recently had a flurry of new subscribers on Spotify, so if your a dirty user yourself check it out and enter the stonesphere. It’s basically just a bunch of mordern-ish tunes with a retro twist. Graveyard, Astra, The Sword, Colour Haze and plenty more stoner rock/metal that shows vague hints of 70s-era music is included. It’s a tight playlist with a loose concept.
Whoever said that southern California was devoid of decent music? Eddie Veliz, singer songwriter and champion of melodic riff making teams up with Tony Castaneda and drummer Pepe Clarke to form the unique and appealing Kyng.
Horseback started back in 2004 and is the brainchild of Jenks Miller and was originally a solo project, but has since become various incarnations of a variety of players. With influences ranging from Swans, Tony Conrad, Junior Kimbrough and Neil Young, Horseback’s sound harks back to the golden era of Prog, in that; it contains musical passages in stark contrast with each other melded to form one overpowering piece but without losing any of the post-rock/ambient vibes. Perhaps though the key to Jenks’ distinct creation are his influences, as far ranging from the aforementioned bands to his love for the dark beauty of ambient/drone to the excesses of extreme metal. The outcome is something very trippy indeed, half way between a horror movie score and a stoner rock or metal album.
