Sunn O))) - Rehearsal Demo Nov 11 2011 LP

My, this blog has taken a turn for the Stoner recently hasn't it?  Don 't worry, we'll get back to Hardcore soon enough.  This is a limited LP to 1500 being sold on their current tour, maybe they'll be some left over to be sold from the Southern Lord webstore at the end, maybe not.

Boris - Call Me 04234 63376 12"

If you've been living under a rock for the last fifteen years, Boris are a Stoner Rock/Drone/occasionally Hardcore band from Tokyo who looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove the Melvins.  This EP was done sometime in the mid nineties when apparently they used to be a four piece, Atsuo, their drummer was originally the singer before Takeshi came in and took over on bass/lead vocals.  This record is a massive nod towards Melvins' Eggnog EP.
