SGT. SUNSHINE - SGT. SUNSHINE (2007)



I recently discover this, and I refused to download this because of their name and cover art, I thought, Oh boy, another Southern whisky-rock band, but nothing more far away from reality. It's a German band with multi-ethnic members (Egyptians, Germans, SouthAmericans, etc..) but what is more interesting is the sound they achieve, pretty hard to define, some passages will sound like Kyuss (Lots of Hommes riffs), but then they go to a more FATSO song, very dynamic album, there aren't two songs that sound the same. I recommend it for this weekend, probably the album of the year.

Enjoy the weekend, get busy living or get busy dying...

01. Vega
02. Mountain Song
03. Kosmo - Terra
04. Rio Rojo
05. Fedra
06. Northern Light
07. Lungs
08. Death (Like A Friend In My Breath)
09. Sad Song
10. Culebra

Sorry is in RS, Mediafire is not working, I'll change it A.S.A.P.

I got this when it came out and IMO it is a masterpiece. Vega is KILLER as are all the other tunes as well. \m/

This is real cool. It's a record that will grow on me over time, because I keep noticing something new.

Gordon-- See if MediaFire is working, but I would love it if you'd post the follow-up. Either Matias or myself will give it a proper post. If MediaFire is down try ZShare. Thanks, man!

Matias said...

don't think it slipped to me Gordon, Now you won 3 free "album request"... think sharp. Thanks man I'let Bj post this

Gordon said...

Thanks Matias, to be honest though, I'm happy to keep downloading the great stuff you put up here. I'm fairly new to the stoner scene so anything you put up is a treat.

Man this is in no way a german band, Eduardo Fernandez guitar, vocals, and all the song writing comes from Havanna, Cuba, while the drummer and bass player are swedish guys, this powerful trio lives in Malmö,Sweden
