Andalusion is a powerhouse in heavy rock, drawing inspiration from the raw authenticity of grunge and the relentless energy of metal. Hailing from upstate New York, this dynamic four-piece band unleashes a sonic assault that seamlessly weaves brooding, gritty undertones and thunderous, dynamic intensity with a commitment to crafting music that resonates on a visceral level. Andalusion is a fusion of raw power and melodic prowess that invites audiences to embark on a musical journey where distorted riffs and emotive lyrics collide.
A decade beyond their formation, Geezer have become a staple presence of the US heavy underground. From their 2013 debut, the Kingston, New York, trio have progressed into and through open-spaced jams and memorable hooks, offering glimpses at their growth across records like 2014’s Gage, 2016’s self-titled and 2017’s Psychoriffadelia, founding guitarist/vocalist Pat Harrington has led the band – now himself, bassist Richie Touseull and drummer Steve Markota – on a thrilling journey of altered consciousness and downright boogie.
Amid the grim existence of 2020, Geezer unleashed Groovy, their most vital release yet, pulling together what Harrington calls the “three pillars of Geezer: heavy, trippy, groovy” with a batch of memorable songs and easy-rolling vibes. It’s a rare band that finds its sound so engagingly, and with Stoned Blues Machine, the sixth Geezer LP, they once again build on their accomplishments, working with producer Chris Bittner at Applehead Recording in Woodstock, NY, to harness the band’s most expansive production to date.
A vivid and bombastic album, Stoned Blues Machine is Geezer’s response to the last few tumultuous years. Much of the subject matter deals with the fear, the literal and metaphorical isolation revolving around the pandemic, the resulting political turmoil, the disintegration of truth and decline of a shared, common good.
The album that will see them return to Europe for the first time since 2017 and serve as their second release for Heavy Psych Sounds is yet another example of what can be done with classic songwriting in imaginative hands. Stoned Blues Machine puts the emphasis on the band’s dynamic and the joy of playing and writing songs together – more as a unit than ever – and shows that even amid some of the darkest hours, you can always say screw it, go get high and cruise the cosmos.
