"Ever wondered what Band of Gypsies would sound like if you mixed it up with Japanese hard psych and smoked it through a giant power bong?"

Well, not really but I'm hearing it now and me is very, very impressed. Fuck yeah, this is a relentless churning Hendrix tribute of the highest quality, a dirgey, treacly mass of beastly sky-shattering rifferama, churning, wanton stoner bass and mad pile-driving drums. If it wasn't helmed by our man J Mascis it would be a bit of a shock to the system but we all know how fantastic a guitarist he is and his fuzzed-out raw psych shredding here is probably the most exhilarating work from him in years.

It's just an instrumental album is this self-titled beauty but the three-pronged assault of J and his two old buddies playing such muscular, driven and feral music completely transcends the need for his stoned drawl, his fingers do the singing here and boy, they must be bleeding profusely by the end of track two. The dynamic is very much Dino-prog Senior (this ain't yer usual indie rock or anthemic slacker shit, the style of playing is too improvised and complex to rank alongside his more famous vehicle) with this slightly muffled, deranged stampede of hyperactivity exploding into your ears like never before. Don't try kick out these jams, embrace them, for they are ecstatic and mighty.
