General Information.

Low Hums are from Seattle Washington and began playing out in 2009.

“I had been touring a lot, the US and especially Europe as a member of Earth and also with Marissa Nadler and I wanted to start a band when the touring cycle was over” – Sanoj

Fueled on a steady diet of amphetaminized Velvet Underground, Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix, Can, Sun Ra, Beefheart, Blue Cheer. Low Hums employ a twin guitar tapestry and a fiery rhythm section. “The name ‘Low Hums’ is from a dream, and I wrote down ” low howls ” in my notebook. Somehow that became Low Hums. It was the sound of wolves howling at night.” Sanoj

While there were other versions of the band that date back to 2009, the current lineup of Sanoj Sniksah, Crystal Powwwers, Rolly Fingers, and Miles ‘Baja’ Panto is by far the finest yet.

Sanoj and Panto first met years ago while their former bands shared a common rehearsal space.  After a couple of floods and a fire, a new rehearsal space was found that came complete with a available drummer. Rolly Fingers was in. Lastly Sanoj and Rolly recruited Crystal Powwwers while Baja Panto was in Old Mexico. Upon his return to the north, the lineup was complete.

Night Magic Wine was recorded in Seattle by Jack Endino, who Sanoj had known for many years. An approachable guy, Jack is well know for having recorded bands such as Nirvana, Screaming Trees, TAD, Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Murder City Devils, and is also holder of a Latin Grammy.

We decided to ask Jack to record and produce this record for a couple reasons. He likes guitars and drums and all things rock and roll. This batch of songs really seemed to be a good fit for him. Jack is also penchant for letting a band find their sound organically. He didn’t let us get too hung up on the little details and told us to leave the mistakes in. We actually ended up mostly with first or second takes on all the basics. Even when we did do more, we ended up with the earlier versions. Night Magic Wine is a lyric from US101. It’s basically about being in a blyssful yet aware altered state of mind.

Shine Rock bonus tracks were recorded in a old church turned recording studio in the small fishing town of Anacortes Washington, home of Karl Blau and Mt Eerie. “It’s a big echo-y room with not a computer in sight.. all analog” Our buddy Randall Dunn, mixed and produced it. Randall has done a lot of work with Earth, Sunn 0)), Chelsea Wolfe, Black Mountain. It was originally a EP on its own. Kozmik suggested we add it to Night Magic Wine and we thought that was a great idea.

One reviewer, after hearing the new single ‘Too Early Too Tell’ described the bands sound as ‘psychedelic, swagger and southern glam!’

“They were molten and melting down at all times—with twin-guitar blowtorch jams inflected”

“This sounds like Lou Reed in the best way” – Jack Endino ( of Too Early To Tell )

Low Hums have played sweaty packed college parties, high desert roadhouses, regional festivals, dive bars, all ages bakeries turned into venues, beaches, generator parties and everything else in between, all while touring the West Coast & Southwest. Hopefully we can
finally start coming to EUROPE !

General Information.

“A heavy exploration into new rock territories while maintaining and utilizing brilliant ingredients of rock n roll history”

The Lunar Effect play fuzz laden riffs mixed with vintage psychedelia in a hard rock homage to bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, laced with a modern, post-grunge twist.

The bands original line up was formed in 2014 by guitarist/singer Jon Jefford and his younger brother Daniel on drums. After writing and recording some material with various local musicians, they met bass player Brett Halsey and singer Josh Gosling in 2016 and everything clicked into place. This led to the release of their E.P “Strange Lands” which received glowing reviews from music blogs around the globe, leading to the band being heard on Kerrang radio, Radio X and Planet Rock radio.

The band have since released a video for their new track ‘Woman’ which will feature on their first full length record Calm Before The Calm which is due to be released in 2018.

General Information.

IAH is a band formed at the beginning of 2016, in Córdoba Capital, Argentina. The band consists of Mauricio Condon on lead guitar, Juan Pablo Lucco on bass, and José Landin on drums.

Musically speaking, the band is a confluence of experience and heterogeneous exploration, but still well delivered by its three members. The versatility of IAH varies from ambient to hypnotic riffs, from powerful explosions to peculiar details demonstrating a variety of influences as a result of the vast musical knowledge of the ensemble. The work of IAH contains some riffs that could fall within the stoner / doom metal genre, bringing strong influences from post rock and from psychedelic rock. It is the least to say that the freshness of what IAH can offer is a small glimpse into the variety of their musical influences.

Since its birth, the band has achieved some key accomplishments, among which we can mention the album release of 2017 (self-titled) by the record label Necio Records of Peru and edited in digipack. In 2018, a vinyl edition of the late record  will be released by Kozmik Artifaktz, a German record label specialized in the said genre. In addition to that, we can add the great success of the disc on many Youtube channels, especially with the new entire album downloaded in a single video exceeding 250,000 views.

General Information.

Hailing from The Gower Peninsula, South Wales, Estuary Blacks are a 3 piece band who play progressive, dynamic, heavy psych. For fans of Kyuss, Mogwai, GY!BE and Elder. Recorded in the depths of West Wales in 2017,  their debut album is equally gentle and soothing as it is powerful and heavy.

Containing former members of Bomb The Sun and Tabularasa, Estuary Blacks have been quietly going about their business since 2014, and have been playing music together in various outfits since 1998. After releasing  a well received 2 track E.P. in 2016 they have now released their self-titled debut album on Bandcamp. German label Kozmik Artifactz will release the album on vinyl and CD later this year.

“It is a truly magnificent album and simply has to be heard”Echoes & Dust

“This is an essential album to have in your collection. It’s as simple as that”Outlaws Of The Sun

“It’s a beautiful record, it really is, a reminder that stoner rock can still provide a template for grown up, joyous music”Ninehertz

“Prog like complexity, post-rock intensity and stoner-like fuzz all weaved together in a tapestry of moving, atmospheric and at times breathtaking intelligent groove”Desert Psychlist

 

“Having worked with Kozmik Artifactz with the Bomb The Sun record a number of years ago we were keen work with them again. Our band is a real labour of love and we know that the guys at Kozmik have the same attitude to their work –  plus they did one hell of a job on the BTS vinyl! Hopefully people dig it as much as we do. We haven’t played outside of Wales yet so we’re hoping to get out and play some shows around the UK and Europe if the opportunity arises. After 2 years of writing and recording this record we’re happy to finally get it out there for people to listen to.”

The Age Of Truth is a band, a brotherhood and a mission. Four brothers-in-arms from Philadelphia united in the singular pursuit of making the most honest heaviness this broken world can handle. As our modern lives bathe us in constant unravelling lies and deceptions, the heaviness they create makes them clean.

With a fully stocked arsenal of riffs wrapped in a tone of honey dipped Satan, The Age Of Truth blends fuzz and diesel fuel with elements of heavy blues, stoner rock and psychedelia. The perfect soundtrack for a barroom brawl that they know only as…the heaviness.

Be Drunk
By Charles Baudelaire

“You have to be always drunk. That’s all there is to it—it’s the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.

And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is singing, everything that is speaking. . .ask what time it is and wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you: “It is time to be drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk! On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish.”

….

A wonderful poem by Baudelaire that captures the whole point of existence and therefore just as precise captures the soul of this band. This is pure speculation of course and should be regarded as alternate facts.

General Information.

“Mountain Dust’s set was a blast of cymbal crashing, headbanging hard rock laced with doom metal and a sensible dosage of psychedelic pretensions. The songs weren’t excuses for aimless guitar wankfests, but slithering heavy jams (the bass player laid hypnotic grooves on his Rickenbacker) that turned in on themselves like a snake eating its tail. Organ à la Deep Purple gave the music a gothic nuance, but the big surprise was lap steel guitar fed through an effects rack.

The band reinvented their blues-metal sound — a genre now as outmoded as bell-bottoms and songs about scoring with underage groupies — with well-crafted riffs that make you forget it’s all the same 4/4 rhythm you’ve heard a million times. They had masterful dynamics and pauses: the music breathed, but it breathed like Godzilla. For four thrashers who look like head shop regulars, Mountain Dust didn’t play a bum note all night.

I can say it was all appropriately face-melting, the best show I’ve seen in Montreal since the Prince afterparty at Muzique (an admittedly high bar). Imagine Zeppelin on their first American tour, pre-superstardom: that’s the impression Mountain Dust left in their wake.” – Cult MTL
