Zombi & Friends, Volume 1

Sure, the last couple years were anything but normal. You could go so far as to say abnormal. I gleaned onto anything I could that would offer some kind of escape from the global pandemic; be it books, films, tv shows, long walks, and of course music. 2020 saw some albums drop that allowed such […]

Zombi : Liquid Crystal

Even though 2020 was the giant dumpster fire that it was, there was still plenty of great music to rise from the political and pandemic ashes.

Red Fang : Only Ghosts

I’ve been digging into the Red Fang discography for the last few days, ever since I picked up their newest album Only Ghosts on the always trusty Relapse Records. I have to say, with the exception of a few songs I’m not all that moved by these Portland stoner rockers. I’d heard the track “Cut […]
