WHO ARE THEY? A Brooklyn guitar-rock power trio whose name is Danish for Judgment Day — and who have now apparently relocated to Los Angeles.
WHAT IS THIS? Their third and most fully realized studio set of their self-described “Road Trip, Head Trip” sound, featuring equal doses of space-rock, stoner-metal, blues-rock and psychedelia.
WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE? Dropping acid with The Amboy Dukes and playing with pedal boards.
HOW SHOULD I LISTEN TO IT? While speeding down the Pacific Coast Highway at midnight in a muscle car.
WHAT 10 WORDS DESCRIBE IT? Heavy, trippy, sprawling, expansive, potent, enigmatic, thunderous, boisterous, spacey, heroic.
WHAT ARE THE BEST SONGS? The speeding Sunny Day Flooding, the hulking Stir the Sea and the southern-friend Kudzu stand out, but the whole disc swings for the fences.
WHAT WILL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY THINK? Nothing — they’ll be too busy playing air guitar.
HOW OFTEN WILL I LISTEN TO THIS? At least a few times between now and Judgment Day.
IF THIS ALBUM WERE A GUITAR PEDAL, WHAT KIND OF PEDAL WOULD IT BE? Wah-wah.
SHOULD I BUY, STREAM OR STEAL? Streaming will get you there.
