I don’t often get too stoked on stoner doom, but Windhand‘s consistently outstanding work in bridging the gap between Black Sabbath riffs and Alice In Chains vocal harmonies places their Relapse Records debut Soma on my list of most anticipated albums of the moment. The material we’ve heard so far has been promising, and we’ve recently gotten another taste of the album with the song ‘Orchard,’ which is now streaming over at NPR. It’s just as great as the song before it!
I’ve had the promo for this album sitting in my iTunes for a week or so now and I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to listen. I suppose I should be doing that soon, right? Soma‘s out September 17th on Relapse Records. Pre-order it here.
