SOD HAULER - S/T EP (2003)

Very reminiscent of the same style of songs off of Sleep's Holy Mountain. The songs will be trucking along with a heavy riff, and then out of nowhere the riffs will slow down and change directions on the drop of a dime. The guitar tones are fuzzy and tuned down and drums and bass drive a rock steady foundation for the overall heavy crippling sounds
  1. Old Jackson
  2. Mother Trucker
  3. Sod Hauler
  4. Lanced Off

Yes, I finally quit being lazy and put together the launch of ELEVATED RADIO. I always enjoy traveling with the good Cap'n on an Inner-Head Flight, and I'm also digging Rinjo's S2S podcasts, so I decided it was finally time to throw the G.O.M.E. hat in the podcasting ring. I need to get more comfortable speaking, but things will smooth themselves out with some practice. One highlight (or lowlight, as the case may be) of the podcast is my slow descent into full-blown stoned drunkenness. Hope you guys enjoy it. I'm going to do my absolute best to post a new podcast every Monday, so keep checking back. Also, I've uploaded it to ZShare, so you can download, stream, or both by clicking the link below. Feedback is welcome, but please, be gentle. This is my first time!



Enough Whiskey rock!! Its time to go down, with this 1990 masterpiece, yeah, talking about the great Mark Lanegan, a kind of Johnny Cash drowned in alcohol.
Here he finds a kindred spirit in Kurt Cobain as the two join forces to present "Down in the Dark." And his version of Leadbelly's "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" is as charged as ever with pent-up frustration and jealousy. An emotional journey through the pains of life..

1. Mockingbirds
2. Museum
3. Undertow
4. Ugly Sunday
5. Down In The Dark
6. Wild Flowers
7. Eyes Of A Child
8. Winding Sheet
9. Woe
10. Ten Feet Tall
11. Where Did You Sleep Last Night
12. Juarez
13. I Love You Little Girl



To keep the line, I brought to you this Whisky + Energy Drink Southern Rock, a band from Texas, a Marshall amps, colorful riffs, dirty talking...yeah. Nothing that we weren't used to, nevertheless, interesting to have a peek.

1 . Weedbilly
2. Local Honey
3 . Warren Oates
4. Meadowlark
5 . Muffin
6 . El Chamuco
7 . Huntin' Rake
8. The First Song

Whiskey rock from Brooklyn? Well, not exactly, but THE BROUGHT LOW does bring a tractor trailer's worth of southern influences to the table. Our main man Jordan requested the debut, which features "Goddamn God Bless", but G.O.M.E. decided to post the band's most recent release, Right on Time. It's the better of the two albums, in my opinion, as well as a favorite. Equal parts AC/DC and LYNYRD SKYNYRD, THE BROUGHT LOW is a band I thought would rival QOTSA on mainstream radio and Billboard charts. Of course, QOTSA has a multinational conglomerate pimping their records while THE BROUGHT LOW's two albums have been released on Tee Pee and Small Stone, respectively. A throwback to simpler times, when rock & roll was both fun and powerful, Right on Time is highly recommended to the Faithful.

1. A Better Life
2. Hail Mary
3. This Ain't No Game
4. Tell Me
5. Dear Ohio
6. Throne
7. Vernon Jackson
8. Shakedown
9. Blues for Cubby
10. There's a Light

Here's a split release from everyone's favorite sons of the south, ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY, paired with New Jersey (and SOLARIZED) expatriates HALFWAY TO GONE. As splits go, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more likely tandem. Aside from both sides kicking ass to the Nth degree, this split is also notable for being H2G's debut. "Thee Song" might actually be the highlight of the record, though it's hard to overlook the mighty ATP's two contributions. I enjoy the more recent Kyle Thomas ATP stuff, but these tracks are a trip down memory lane...back to the Johnny Thockmorton-fronted Man's Ruin days. Four fantastic shots of the absolute top shelf of whiskey rock.

1. ATP - Heavyweight
2. ATP - Rabdos (The Strangler)
3. H2G - Darktown Strutter
4. H2G - Thee Song


COLOUR HAZE - CO2 (2000)

The G.O.M.E. Faithful seems to really dig COLOUR HAZE, so I thought I'd share this gem from 2000. While COLOUR HAZE eventually became a unique band of a class all their own, this particular record displays a very distinct KYUSS influence. While not quite up to the standards of the band's more recent efforts, CO² is a very solid desert-inspired rock album, and shows many signs of the brilliance that would come later. Highlights include "Motormind" and the epic closing title track.

1. Get It On
2. Shine
3. All Right
4. Motormind
5. Inside
6. CO²

This one's for our main man Roadburner (sorry for the delay, bro). The rest of you can take it or leave it. A lot of people hate ACRIMONY, calling them knockoffs, wanna-bes, poseurs, trend-hoppers, and various other disparaging names. Hell, I believe G.O.M.E.'s own Mighty Matias put it bluntly on this very page: "I don't like ACRIMONY". Well, this demo from '92 is proof positive that ACRIMONY did indeed ape, or attempt to ape, the desert sound. A Sombre Thought is death doom with some thrash/speed metal passages. Based on this tape, you'd never in a million years imagine this band releasing some of the best desert-influenced groove-based rock of the old century. If I haven't made myself clear, let me come right out and say it: I love ACRIMONY, but I never listen to A Sombre Thought. Thank god these guys discovered KYUSS.

1. Ever Sleeping Dawn
2. Mourn the Dead
3. Carved in Stone

Stoner rock from Spain, these guys offer a heavy psych very similar to Los Natas when it comes to song structure, nice mellow acoustics, great ambience, a bit dark from time to time, but it worth to have a listen. It has all you demand from an European band plus they sing in Spanish in some tracks, so.....

01 - Roto Blues
02 - Cardio Limite
03 - Solo
04 - Higomon 2A
05 - Largo Beso Recto
06 - Higomon 2B
07 - Vuelo Inferno After En Marte
08 - Humo De Mota
09 - Valiums

Yet another forgotten Man's Ruin casualty, brought to you by G.O.M.E. In 2001, as the legendary Man's Ruin was circling the drain, they managed to crank out this surprisingly consistent and thoroughly enjoyable album from San Jose's OPERATOR GENERATOR. As you're all no doubt aware, some bands had better luck than others when it came to getting their music heard post-Man's Ruin, and OPERATOR GENERATOR were, unfortunately, one of the more overlooked bands. As for the music itself? They owe the requisite debts to SABBATH, but there's a lot more going on here. These guys were equally influenced by the experimentation and melodic sense of late '60s/early '70s psych rock. Polar Fleet is a bit brief, but it's a great rock & roll record that will have no trouble holding your attention. "Soul of Lavamore", featuring an electric sitar, is worth the cost of admission alone. Highly recommended.

1. Equinox Planetarium
2. Polar Fleet
3. Museum's Flight
4. Atmospheric Insect/The Launch
5. Quaintance of Natherack
6. Arctic Quest
7. Infinite Loop
8. Soil of Lavamore

This is a band I haven't seen discussed much here at G.O.M.E., so I thought I'd offer up their debut. It took me some time to really catch on to Washington DC's DEAD MEADOW, though now I can't get enough of them. To be perfectly honest, Jason Simon is still far from my favorite vocalist, and DEAD MEADOW's eponymous release is far from their best work, but it's a great place to start. The pieces were already in place, from the fuzz-fest opener "Sleepy Silver Door", through the trippy ballad "Dragonfly", all the way through the closing "Rocky Mountain High" (no, not the John Denver song of the same name). Perhaps most interesting are the bizarre twists and turns between those tracks. Is this stoner rock? Neo-Psychedelia? Indie rock? I'm not particularly fond of compartmentalizing music and attaching cute little labels to it. DEAD MEADOW is amazing in the sense that they're absolutely impossible to categorize.

1. Sleepy Silver Door
2. Indian Bones
3. Dragonfly
4. Lady
5. Greensky Greenlake
6. Beyond the Fields We Know
7. At the Edge of the Wood
8. Rocky Mountain High

I intended to post this one a long time ago, but, for whatever reason, I never got around to it. ACRIMONY was one of my favorite bands, and The Acid Elephant EP is no disappointment. I find this brief collection of songs to be the perfect compliment to the classic Hymns to the Stone. "Spaced Cat #7" is ACRIMONY at its absolute best, and I'm sure you'll all agree that "The Bud Song" definitely serves its purpose. Overall, The Acid Elephant EP is essential to the collection of any ACRIMONY fan.

1. Spaced Cat #7
2. The Inn
3. The Bud Song
4. Fire Dance (Live from the Planet Urabalaboom)

Matias and I have been too busy with THE ELEVATOR SESSIONS, as of late, to keep bringing the rock to you guys (and ladies). I'll right that wrong tomorrow, as I've got a load of new stuff for you, including the new MONSTER MAGNET!
