Glasspack (2007)


Dirty Women
Sleazy, but self-parodying and unpretentious guitar rock from Kentucky-based band, the Glasspack


Gozu (2013)


The Fury of a Patient Man

The New Normal
Moodily tongue-in-cheek stoner rock on debut album from new Boston trio, Hackman

Red Supergiant
Torturous stoner rock on second album from Portugese-based group, Miss Lava

Unashamedly retro latest album from excellent stoner rock outfit Mos Generator who take as a blueprint the classic 70's heavy metal sounds of bands such as Deep Purple and Thin Lizzy


Novadriver (2005)


Deeper High
Evocative second album from space rockers Novadriver, whose concerns otherwise remain decidely earthy


Porn (2004)


Wine, Women And Song
Disappointing debut album from Porn, which despite including in its line-up Melvins drummer Dale Crover and stoner-rock producer Billy Anderson as its bassist, doesn't live up to the promise of its participants

Universal Freak Out
Irreverent stoner rock with a strong emphasis on humour on third album from New York lunatics Puny Human

Long overdue retrospective from Pixies and My Bloody Valentine-influenced American shoegazers Slot, released in the wake of guitarist Billy Rivkin's untimely death from cancer

X
Fourth album from Toronto stoner rock trio Sons of Otis, which proves to be a strong return to form after their disappointing last album, 'Songs of Worship'


Sons Of Otis (2009)


Exiled
Slow-paced latest album from doom-laden, but durable Toronto-based space rockers, Sons of Otis


Throttlerod (2003)


Hell And High Water
Effective, hard-hitting “Southern Rock” from Throttlerod, which manages to move beyond all the usual cliches of the genre


Tummler (2003)


Early Man
Unremarkable stoner rock from Tummler whose music "huffs from the same bong as Nebula and Fu Manchu"

Capably solid third album from stoner rock group Valis, whom include among their number Screaming Trees guitarist Van Conner


Various (2007)


Sucking the 70's-Back in the Saddle Again

Wo Fat (2013)


The Black Code
Competent, but somewhat unimaginative 70's-influenced heavy rock from Texan trio, Wo Fat
