TIA CARRERA: Self-titled: CD

Feb 15, 2007

Despite the bad band name, this is some awesome heavy rock. Crushing, slightly meandering stoner rock that is all instrumental. It is excellently done and very hypnotic, not things I find myself saying about most of the heavy rock that has come out in the past five years. It has become a trend and most bands are half assed. This band is also saved by not having any lyrics, so no embarrassing attempts to be “deep.” The whole record pretty much sounds like that amazing nine minute closing track from Coping With the Urban Coyote by Unida. Could not recommend this more if you are a fan of heavy rock.
