Austin's Tia Carrera pull off some incredible psych rock sludge that's a nice balance of Cream and the Melvins. Reportedly foregoing the traditional practice and rehearsal approach and instead choosing to base their live show on a feeling of spontaneous jams, the band creates improve psych metal that's as much in tune with the ethos of 70's heavy rock as it is with the current indie metal outpourings of labels like Southern Lord. I can't even begin to speculate on how a band that creates face searing, amplifier worshiping jams could take their name from a borderline b-movie starlet but eh, who cares right? Strange name, good band. Their latest record is out now on Australian Cattle God Records.
