You take the high Desert. I’ll take the low Desert. Ex Kyuss man is back, back, back – oh and we’ve got a copy of the album, yes sir!
As a cult figure of the Palm Desert scene, as founder and drummer of the unfortunately no longer active Stoner-Rock legends Kyuss and a permanent member of Vista Chino (formerly KYUSS Lives!), the formation around Kyuss colleague John Garcia, Brant Bjork is washed with all (musical) waters.
Now he is sailing under his own flag and proves once again that his multi-instrumental skills know no creative boundaries.
With his excellent Low Desert Punk Band, Bjork lets the scorching heat of Nevada shimmer in his songs. He also scrubs his guitar through all sorts of psychedelic effect pedals and skillfully mixes Stoner Rock, Blues and Doom-bonds to a feverish hazy brew.
The Desert Rock Band has reached their oasis. Or something.
All of which is a roundabout way of saying. Brant Bjork – yes that’s Brant Bjork for anyone still not paying attention at the back! – has a new record coming out.
“Black Power Flower” Is released in the UK next week and we will have a review for you right here.
