The Well – Austin, USA (RidingEasy Records)
While continuing to walk an intriguing line between authentic early 70s doom/heavy psych and frayed weirdness of dark folk – especially with their haunting unison male/female vocals – the new album “Death and Consolation” also adds the stark vibe of post-punk acts like Joy Division and early The Cure. “I feel like this album is almost more gothic. We’re big fans of post-punk,” Graham says. There’s also much less jamming, the songs are tight and concise. And, did we mention, heavy? The band tuned down a full step to C-standard tuning for this album, which gives the proceedings its monstrous sound.”

Ursular – Berlin (Saxodoom)
This heavy-playing fourpiece was brought together by their love for beer andamplifier-induced trance states. Like a slow trudging bear with a fuzzy pelt, electric claws and amelodic singing voice, the female-fronted outfit is looking to bring their very own mix of Doom andHeavy Psychedelic Rock to the stoner caves of this world. From the deep growl of the amplifiers tothe peaks of a saxophone wrapped in reverb, URSULAR are looking to combine the heavy with themelodic, the meditative with the ecstatic, the familiar with the unexpected. Let there be fuzz. Let it be loud.
Let there be URSULAR.
