Are you a fan of Floridian two-pieces doing thick-as-fuck Southern psych-sludge? Or a song title like “Growing Slow” actually feeling like it is actually doing just that? Do you like Kylesa, Sleep, and/or Eyehategod? Long, contemplative walks through the beaches of Hell? If you aren't sure, you can test those waters with the upcoming album from the Floridian duo Dark Castle (pictured above); Spirited Migration, out May 26th on At a Loss Recordings.
Sure Tournament say they have been described as “hardcore gay drug-punk” (so it says on that cyber-tomb known as Myspace), but I would rather say heavy doses of Neurosis, His Hero is Gone, and a bunch of the really good screamy hardcore from San Diego circa the end of the last century. Their LP Years Old will be out on Forcefield Recordings in June.
And then there were a bunch of Canucks who smoked a lot of pot, and realized that Josh Homme was a whole lot cooler when he was getting fucked up on peyote in the desert and playing in Kyuss. They call themselves Quest for Fire, and their June debut is on Tee Pee Records.
