8/10 Mike Staff review, 23 April 2013

We’ve got more limited CDs from Senor Linney from his Reverb Workshop this week, and one of those is this long-player of fuzzed out stoner rock by Owl, which I have picked to review because I like owls, as anyone who has visited our shop can attest to. Anyway, as you would imagine from a CD called ‘Demo Tape’, this is a pretty lo-fi affair, with muddily distorted neanderthal riffs and vocals that are crisp and high in the mix.

The highlight of the CD is ‘Glaurung’, a galloping bit of Hawkwind-gone-feral riff rock that’s like a lo-fi cross between Uncle Acid and The Cosmic Dead with a bonkers psychedelic drum solo in the middle which segues into some chunky Sabbath riffing and acid-fried dual guitar twiddling like The Heads covering the closing passage of ‘Hotel California’. It’s blown out and overblown and faintly ridiculous and it’s driving our Phil a bit mental but I think it’s pretty fun!
