Hello guys! Our blog is back bringing the best of dragged, stoned and dirty music.
Today we’re coming back with everything to talk about an album of a band that for me is a legend of Stoner Rock, Sasquatch! The band that has been active since 2000 released in June 2017 their newest upcoming work called Maneuvers and how can we describe this album? What I can begin to tell you is that several of the Sasquatch features we know of continue in this work as the powerful Fuzz that it’s hard not to fall in love with their weight and the sound of the group going from Black Sabbath to Grunge influences keeping that sound of the desert we so much love besides influences like Melvins, Grand Funk Railroad, all these influences are here making the sound of Sasquatch to pulse.
The album that contains nine songs and was released by the label Mad Oak Records presents in addition to the features mentioned above more careful work on vocals, I was surprised by the work done. I also felt that the Maneuvers seems to go through several stages of the band over the years, every energy of each album is there, all the heavy riffs the aggressiveness and nostalgia and the bass is well present in this work where the contrast with the guitar is constant. I am a fan of the first album and here I highlight the tracks with the same energy of the first work as “Rational Woman” and “Destroyer”. Pure desert tracks with organ additions like those heard in 60’s bands are also featured on tracks like “Just Could not Stand The Weather”. The entire album causes me a state of nostalgia and makes me very happy to know that Sasquatch is still Sasquatch and even better than ever, simply addictive! A must-have album for anyone who wants to listen to a good Stoner Rock, certainly in the future when the youngsters are discovering Stoner this album will be quoted as essential.
If the desert is your home, feel at home as the sun and the sand will make you fry perhaps you want a glass of water at this time, but perhaps to the sound of Sasquatch in a car crossing the desert you want to stop a bit and ascend that marijuana.
