    I wasn't sure where to post this - it could have gone on a couple of other threads, but I thought it would get the most appreciation here. A completely random find - Stoner, Doom Metal, I'm not sure, but the female singer, named Jex Thoth (that's apparently what she goes by), is really great. She sounds sort of like Bjork, and sort of like the woman with the beehive-hairdo from The B-52s (but better). The band is good too, though I don't even know who is in it! They're from Madison, Wisconsin. This is their first album, from 2003, but I checked out their fourth (and last, it seems) from 2013, and it sounds very good.

    Slow Wake, a band out of Cleveland: https://slowwake.bandcamp.com/album/...JtxTqQ27n3qT_8

    I like the description: Like staring out into the abyss of Lake Erie at sunset on a few hits of acid as the sun burns the water.

    Another one I'm enjoying is the new Earthless - Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons https://www.earthlessofficial.com/si...s-is-out-today

    New WO FAT, "The Singularity" is crushing! Usual blistering riffing and jamming but more tempo changes than previous recordings and even an odd time signature thrown in.

    Also, new SASQUATCH on the way! And new EARTHLESS, as mentioned... 2022 is shapin' up as a great year for stoner!

    I know Mars Red Sky was mentioned somewhere amongst the many pages here but any opinions?
    To my ears very unique sounding with the vocals not seeming to match the music at times but I'm really drawn to their sound especially that debut.
    The guitarist/vocalist who has sung in other bands said he just started singing over the heaviness and it seemed to work. They site The Melvins, Sleep and King Crimson as influences and many others of course.
    How legit is this band? Anyway I've been won over, I have their first three studio albums. They have called their music Doom Pop or Black Sabbath meets Simon And Garfunkel so I get that not everyone would be into this.

    Already have both, though still waiting their turn for a spin. Unfortunately my backlog of CDs to listen is quite overwhelming

    I pop in and out of this thread every so often. I should probably go ahead and pledge it.

    First came Melvins. I'm not really sure how I fell into them (Patton/FNM/Mr. Bungle connection?), but I did. Somehow, I've avoided seeing them for nearly twenty years. I had a ticket to see King Buzzo and Trevor Dunn a few years back, but it was pandemic cancelled.

    They were my entry point. There was Jucifer and Black Sabbath (duh) and probably some other stuff, but I didn't go much beyond Melvins until I encountered Motorpsycho (through PE) six or seven years ago. Yeah, I get that Motorpsycho aren't stoner, but they get sludgy, and I really like that sludgy sound. So Boss Keloid and The Sword and Elder (I'll be at the Raleigh show in August) and Fu Manchu and All Them Witches later, and I guess I'm in.

    This is a giant thread, and I can't possibly digest it all, but I'm very appreciative of the resource and have added quite a few bands to my Bandcamp as a result.

    I do have one quick question: Where can I buy physical releases from Sleep while avoiding Amazon? (I haven't checked Discogs yet--figured there must be a primary source somewhere.)

    There is a new reissue of Sleep's Holy Mountain (Full Dynamic Range Edition) at their bandcamp website. CD is quite cheap and hard to refuse. If you prefer vinyl they have it there too.

    ^Ah! I think I see what I did. I followed a different page for Sleep.

    For some reason, they have three different Bandcamp pages (perhaps for different labels/revenue streams?).

    Sasquatch doesn't sound much different to me. I like the new one. I just don't think it's much of a change

    I'm playing a couple of the more recent Papir albums - really tasty stuff. Stoner riffs mixed with post-rock ambience.

    Have you heard London Odense Ensemble: Jaiyede Sessions Vol. 1?

    Jonas Munk, Jakob Skøtt, Martin Rude, Tamar Osborn and Al MacSween.

    Check it out.
