Yep, been a bit behind on my plans with PWP lately. A hand injury and bursitis flare up tend to slow one down so that's just the way things go. At least, we're getting the 6th straight monthly installment of "Sucking the 70's." I have a new 'cast in the "Northern Outlaw" series in the can as well as "Blasphemosity: 2011 Smoldering Embers First Wave." Those will be coming shortly, but right now I have another hour of kick-ass Stoner jams.
This month on "Sucking the 70's" we have a good chunk of Midwest rockers, and a lot still active so get out and see them. I have an off the wall blues based track from defunct Detroit rockers Cuckold, new Red Fang & Thorr-axe, and I'll introduce you to the smoke-laden Sludge from Grand Rapids, MI's Mountain Goat.
A few corrections, I referred to the Thundermother album as "One Red Rowan" obviously as you can tell from below its "No Red Rowan." I also said that Herder's release was independent, but it turns out that it is in Reflections records.
There is quite a bit of this music available for free (also some with physical versions as well) so check out the links in the playlist below. All links lead to legitimate ways to get the music, mostly the label that released it. Obviously, there will be situations where there are better sources.
