HOUND: Live! At Golden Tea House: LP

Mar 29, 2016

I don’t usually like to start a band with a live release, but this album rocks hard on the scale of Sleep-inspired drippage to full-on, fifth gear stoner metal. The classic bootleg-style white sleeve with a flyer glued to it might skew my view. People who dig for records often stop flipping when they run across a homemade album cover to see what it is. Had I seen this in a bin, I would have likely kept going, not knowing the band. But I’m glad to hear it now. It’s got fire and—duh, I guess—it sounds good live. I don’t know what Hound’s studio albums sounds like, but this works.
