Though they share common ground, the heavy hands of Sludge don't always mesh with the the outer flung aspirations of Space Rock. But just as with fellow compatriots White Hills, Pontiak have managed to balance the two worlds in a heady concoction that kicks just as much as it languishes in the ether. The band's latest offering Sun On Sun is as powerful as it is nebulous; trading thunder and smoke in equal measure. With a definite haunting of classic rock's ghosts peering over their shoulders the band power on through the next few decades of heaviness to create the perfect amalgam of swagger, fire and light. This one seems to have slipped through the cracks, finding its way out quietly in August, but its certainly worth revisiting.
