Heavy Psych Sounds reissue Stoned Jesus’ Stormy Monday EP on CD vinyl 12” and very limited white 12”. This band sound pretty much exactly how you would imagine they would from their name. Slow, sludgy guitar, some light sprinklings of organ and laid-back guitar solos. A lovely blend of tough hard rock and doom/stoner metal parts.

- Stormy Monday EP by Stoned Jesus
Weed is great and all, but I reject the tradition that endears it to psych rock; our very own Laurie will smoke and spend the rest of the night making contact noise with his cello, so you know -- there are other options. Having never been offered the chance to do anything different, the three dudes in Stoned Jesus have decided to make kinda cut-and-dry music that sounds one third towards psych rock, another towards stoner rawk and another to the mainstream hard rock canon. Do I like it? I guess that’s not the point.
My favourite moment on this record comes in the one proggy chord maneuver of “Stormy Monday”, which is mostly a fuzzed up ode to Chad Kroeger and Dave Grohl (right down to the painstaked riffs). Other than that, this record sounds like one processed cliche, plus the unfortunate barnburner “Drunk and Horny”, which thrashes its way through lyrics like “got a hard on, babeeeeeeh!”. Maybe I’d have more to say if the music was enjoyable, but it sounds kinda like the band fell into exhaustion at this point: the growls come with croaks and gaps, and I can’t even call the blastbeat that ends this song “serviceable”, as Clint might at this point.
To conclude… being high is good but not unconditionally. My advice for this record: leave it out.
