Baron Crane is a refreshing instrumental formation from Paris, France. They play fuzzy instrumental grooves that will get you moving. Rooted firmly in the stoner rock genre while still drawing from jazz, dub and noise rock. A real crazy but absolutely stunning sound. These guys deliver some really great jams. From the production to the song-writing and artwork, everything is top notch on this magnificent record. Gave this one a few spins and it kept me coming back for more.
Their self-titled debut EP was released last year, but it's never too late to write about cool music. Visit their Bandcamp page below & support these guys!
"This heavy psych stoner rock quartet from Helsinki managed to create a wonderful balance between hooks, melody and utterly heavy riffage. However, the fantastic vocals are definitely the paramount instrument to this band. The singer sounds like a mix between Mark Lanegan, Chris Cornell and Mike Patton."
"You could say that Galva is musically too similar to Down, but they aren't just paying homage to Down, they also managed to create the best brand of southern-fueled stoner metal. There are some absolutely killer grooves throughout this album."
"Her Name Was Fire is a small band with a big sound. They draw inspiration from such legends as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Keys, Kyuss and Alice In Chains to create electrifying compositions based around the blues and stoner rock."
