LOW RIDER - ODE TO IO (2000)



When I was a kid I thought that Sweden was all about Volvos, busty blonds and cold weather, but, there is more than that, such as great Rock groups, among them, is Low Rider, one of the finest Scandinavian that ever came out from there. After a split with Nebula they released this underrated masterpiece on 2000, and it sounds great. Off course you will find some Kyuss influence ("Anchor" track is like "Spaceship Landing" extension) and other tunes which probably will remind you to Monster Magnet, some early Fu Manchu, Atomic Bitchwax, and so on...
This is another "Must Have" if you consider yourself a proper G.O.M.E. reg.
If someone of you is from there, we will apreciate more info on incoming Swedish bands ( a picture of your busty blond sister 'd be highly wellcome too)
Take me to your leader!

01 - Caravan
02 - Flat Earth
03 - Convoy V

07 - Riding Shotgun

We must have had a little from the same crop. I posted this one on my blog Tuesday! Great stuff, I love it. I added the 4 Lowrider tracks from the Nebula/Lowrider Double EP from 1998 as a bonus also. Peace.

Haha, excellent post. Nothing wrong with a busty blond...or great Swedish stoner rock, for that matter!
