Check out this brand new band! It's coming from Montreal, Canada and this group of four is called Lion Farm. These guys play very nice Rock 'n' Roll with a Stoner Rock base, but there are also other elements, such as Hard Rock, Metal, Psychedelic and Space.
This was dropped in the C-Box a couple of hours ago. So thanks to the one who dropped it!

Bear Baiting from Los Angeles USA is formed by the two bass players Matt and Dennis. These guys play, with addition of some electronic devices, some pretty nice Atmospheric Post Rock. Bear Baiting has just released their same titled EP. It contains six tracks, which are short and compact. So there are no very long drawn-out compositions. This is the strenght of Bear Baiting: Creating short and atmospheric songs.
This EP is a great sounding recording and I wonder how these guys stand out on stage. Enjoy!
Bear Baiting was born as the brainchild of bassists Matt Boylan (Cuneiform) and Dennis Valles (Helen 55) in 2008. The two met at a mutual friend's, (National Sunday Law) show at the L.A. Knitting Factory and discussed to possibility of a 2 bass project. Shortly thereafter, the two got together and started writing material. The combination of Boylan's thunderous riffing, plus Valles' diversity of tones, made for interesting music, but the project lacked proper drums. The two contemplated getting a drummer to join the fold, but prospects were limited. Valles decided to program all the drums, rather than finding a drummer, and take a more DIY approach, resulting in a more realized vision for the music. After getting past the learning curve, the songs began to take shape. Multiple sounds and textures combined to form something truly unique. While not as technical as most instrumental artists, Bear Baiting sets out to form more of a soundscape than nonstop riffing.
We're proud of the results of our experiment, and hope you enjoy.

This single was posted at this blog about three years ago. The reason I repost this single is the fact that a copy was delivered by the mailman today.

Dos E.P.'s is a compilation album by the Los Angeles based Stoner Rock band Nebula. This compilation from 2001 begins with the three unreleased tracks Rocket, Long Day and Bardo Airways. The remaining eight tracks come from the Sun Creature EP and the split with Lowrider. Five of these tracks sound different because they are remixed.

Electric Magma is a band from Toronto, Canada. This trio plays incredible great Instrumental Stoner Rock. These guys have released until now six albums and the seventh one called Canadian Samurai is coming up.
The album Snail The Wah is my personal favorite. It contains 13 tracks of Wah Wah madness. This great pedal is all over this album. Even the bass is here and there infected with this magnificant effect.
Beside that does this album have a very awesome sound. It is thick and heavy. The riffs are stunning, just as the bass and drums.
All of the 13 songs are compositional masterpieces. A brilliant album! Enjoy!
Electric Magma formed in 2000 in the tiny hamlet known as Toronto, Canada. Emerging from the ashes of previous musical endeavors, the thunderous trio comprised of Tryg Smith , Tim Reesor and Mario Lunardo forged ahead with their vision of sonic eruption. Halfway up the fuzzed-out sludge ladder, somewhere in between the metal boogie rock of Clutch and the surfed-up stoner rock of Fu Manchu, lies the sound of burning liquid rock. Electrified Magma.
While many groups struggle with the concept of applying vocal melodies over their musical groove, Electric Magma opted to side-step this dilemma and simply forgo the vocals and in their place drop in double the riffs. While the lack of a singer can be a crippling obstacle for many a lesser band, it has only added fuel to their collective fire and driven their fuzzed-out riff rock into another dimension.
Notorious merch whores, Electric Magma are second only to KISS when it comes to pimping the name onto anything and everything…soup to nuts, condoms to candy bars…their merch table alone is often an event unto itself, representing a bigger spread than Grandma’s baked goods table at the local church bazaar.
Currently promoting the release of their latest album entitled “Mudshovel”, which was released in April 2009, Electric Magma barrel ahead like a runaway freight train. This latest record may in fact be every stoner rock fans wet dream as they have created the ultimate sing-along for psychopaths and hard rocking maniacs. It’s riff rock karaoke night at the Sirloin Saloon, so grab your beer and belt buckle and give it your best.
