Sea Of Green

Time To Fly

The Music Cartel

How ’bout it?! A “stoner rock” record that doesn’t rumble along at a uni-plod tempo!? Pretty novel idea, no? In Sea Of Green we find a trio capable of many moods (some airy), many tempos (most scrappy), and conspicuously devoid of a buttload of Monster Magnetisms (note “buttload” • there’s still plenty of such here, however Pink Floyded-over they may be), Time To Fly rumbling along to a loose n’ clattering production • and all the better for it, methinks • that’s surprisingly not too self-consciously analog. Still, put this on at your next pot party, and I’m likely to not even notice or care, but hey • I’m still grooving, man. But when the going gets gone these days, I’m reaching for the new Church Of Misery or the Boris reissue.
