Sandrider- Godhead


Release date: 2013Nov19
Label: Good To Die Records
Rating: 4/5

Sandrider hail from Seattle, WA and play dirty, fuzzed-out desert rock in the vein of The Jesus Lizard meets Kyuss. “Ruiner” is the soundtrack to  wandering aimlessly in the Mojave. Production values  on “Tides” are straight out of 1991. Simple and gritty, not sitting pretty. “Gorgon” is a personal favorite as it is to my ears, a modern take on Fu Manchu‘s bold stone grooves. “Godhead” fooled me into thinking that I was listening to Alice In Chains. “Champions” would be complete with a catchy video, wrapping up with smashed instruments. “Beast” terrorizes the eardrums with catchy, stripped-down grunge licks. “Traveler” brings it all full-circle, a continuation of the first track. Don’t let this gem pass you by.
