Somali Yacht Club is a psychedelic/stoner rock trio from Lviv, Ukraine. Formed in 2010 as a jam band, Somali Yacht Club quickly transformed from a side-project into the main musical activity of its members. In August 2011 they self-released their first four-song EP “Sandsongs”, followed by a single “Desert Walls” in 2013. In their first full-length “The Sun” they changed their musical direction from straightforward to more abstract and progressive. The album blends stoner, blues, dub, shoegazing, psychedelic rock, and post rock and beautifully wraps all these styles in fuzz in a very thoughtful, cohesive, and atmospheric way causing its listeners to experience a multitude of emotions and attitudes.

In early 2018, Robustfellow Prods. released the band’s second album “The Sea” which took the Ukrainian outfit’s sound to the next level and quickly became one of the main contenders for the top-2018 lists.

Ethereal Riffian Begin Recording Process for New Album; Documentary Video Posted

Posted in Bootleg Theater on July 6th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

Is it time to start looking forward to the new Ethereal Riffian album yet? Okay, good. Because I pretty much already was anyway. There’s nothing like being ahead of the game, and when it comes to the Kiev-based progressive, meditative, shamanic heavy rockers, whose sense of ritualism so righteously pervaded their Afterlight live album/DVD (review here), it’s worth keeping up with the process as it unfolds. Fortunately, they’re anything but shy when it comes to giving behind-the-scenes looks at what they do. The video portion of Afterlight was interspersed with documentary footage, and last year’s Relics (discussed here) found them talking about the making of their lush, personalized packaging for limited edition items that’s become such a part of their presentation, so that a release becomes a multi-sensory experience not just aurally or visually, but as well in terms of how it actually feels in your hands.

The Afterlight release seems particularly relevant when it comes to the making of Ethereal Riffian‘s next record. In a new video, the four-piece enter Bobina Records to begin a live demoing process for the aforementioned new album — their third behind 2014’s Aeonian and their 2011 debut, Shaman’s Visions — and they specifically note that recording live is something they decided to do after the live record. There’s a quote from yours truly included in the video — a nice little ego kick, and much appreciated — but more importantly, it’s a means for the band not only to make the tracking process more exciting for themselves, but to harvest that energy and inject it into the actual sound of what they’re creating. One should keep in mind they’re still just in the demo stage, so it’ll likely be a while before the album surfaces, but I get the feeling that Ethereal Riffian will bring us all in the loop as they move forward toward finalizing the album.

By the way, I find it very hard to believe they don’t have a title yet. No way a band who puts this much thought and concerted, self-aware effort into progressing their sound lets a thing like that go so long without being nailed down. They’re playing coy, keeping it up their sleeve until the time is right. That’s my bet, anyhow.

Frontman Val Kornev forwarded the video over, and my first question for him was how many they’ll be making. His answer: “4 to 6, haven’t decided yet.” Fair enough. I’ll do my best to keep up.

Enjoy the first clip below, followed by some quick word from Robustfellow Productions via thee social medias:

Ethereal Riffian, Recording Third LP – Video 1

Ethereal Riffian enters Bobina records studio to produce demo of the forthcoming album.

More news to follow soon.

Ethereal Riffian is:

Alexander Kornev (aka SAF) – bass
Max Yuhimenko (aka Southman) – lead guitar
Nikita Shipovskoi (aka Ship) – drums

Stoned Jesus Premiere “Hands Resist Him” Video; European Tour Impending

Posted in Bootleg Theater on June 29th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

STONED JESUS

 

Stoned Jesus will release their fourth album, Pilgrims, on Sept. 7 as their first offering through Napalm Records. That in itself makes it a pretty pivotal moment for the Ukrainian heavy rock forerunners, but the big question going into the record is exactly where it will find the band following 2015’s The Harvest (review here) since they more or less spent the last year digging back to celebrate the fifth anniversary of YouTube’s favorite heavy rock record, their sophomore LP, 2012’s Seven Thunders Roar (review here). They toured playing that record in full, and with such a sharp sonic divide between its warm and stonerly tones and the sharper edges of The Harvest, I’ve been genuinely curious to find out exactly what kind of pilgrimage Stoned Jesus are going on with the new collection.

We get a first hint in the trio’s new video for the song “Hands Resist Him.” Amid the most resonant melodies I’ve yet heard from Stoned Jesus, they do indeed dig into a depth of tone that the last album seemed to eschew, but there’s a turn around the 4:30 mark to speedier riffing that finds guitarist/vocalist Igor Sidorenko, bassist Serhij Sljussar and drummer Dmytro Zinchenko pushing into an almost punkish rhythm, so it’s not as if the aesthetic growth brought to bear in The Harvest has been ignored or cast off. It’s there too. The question that remains is how much “Hands Resist Him” speaks for the rest of Pilgrims, and knowing Stoned Jesus‘ sneakily progressive bent as it’s emerged in their sound over time, I’d guess that there’s probably more to the new record than they’re letting on. They’re not the types to give away all the answers outright. They want their listeners to do some digging.

And no doubt there will be plenty to dig when the album arrives, since Stoned Jesus have always been songwriters first and foremost even as their style has proved so malleable over the course of the eight years since they made their debut with 2010’s First Communion. Following a hometown release show on Sept. 7 in Kiev, the band will be heading out on a Sound of Liberation-presented tour alongside Texas troublemakers Mothership and UK tone rollers Elephant Tree that runs for just over three weeks across a swath of Europe. Like Pilgrims itself, it’s an important tour since it will be Stoned Jesus in the headlining spot with support from two also-killer bands, and another pivotal step-up moment for them as they continue to live up to the potential they’ve shown in their work all along.

I’m thrilled today to host the premiere of the “Hands Resist Him” video, which surely stretched Napalm‘s budget as regards the fog machine. You’ll find the clip below, followed by a quick quote from Sidorenko and the tour dates, courtesy of the PR wire.

Please enjoy:

Stoned Jesus, “Hands Resist Him” official video premiere

Igor Sidorenko on “Hands Resist Him”:

I guess this track is a perfect example of the changes I’m going through as a songwriter and Stoned Jesus is going through as a band. It’s dark, heavy and intense, but it’s a great song first and foremost.

On September 7th STONED JESUS will deliver their next solid slab of progressive stoner rock on Napalm Records: Pilgrims.

With their fourth album the Ukrainian trio offers much more than an average desert session: Pilgrims is a rather multi-faceted affair mixing groove with noise rock elements, lots of proggy infusions and maybe even a sick bass line reminiscent of good old Deftones (“Thessalia”). Giants such as Mastodon and Melvins come to mind since STONED JESUS can’t be pigeonholed.

Stoned Jesus Set Sept. 7 Release for Pilgrims

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 6th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

STONED JESUS

I haven’t been fortunate enough yet to have heard Stoned Jesus‘ upcoming fourth album and Napalm Records debut, Pilgrims, but I think it’s fair to say that through the circumstances of its arrival and through the massive amounts of touring the Kiev trio have done to lead up to it, it’s relatively safe to call them the forerunners of the Ukrainian heavy underground. That a label with the profile of Napalm would take a shot on them is telling, but as they move into the cycle for Pilgrims, I’m more interested to hear how the three-piece will follow-up 2015’s The Harvest (review here).

That record found Stoned Jesus departing the comforting and riffy confines of its predecessor, 2012’s done-gone-viral Seven Thunders Roar (review here), but then last year, they spent several tours playing that album in its entirety. Will that have an influence on the overarching impression Pilgrims makes? Hell if I know, but Stoned Jesus haven’t put out a long-player yet that didn’t push their sound forward, so it’ll be interesting to find out.

They’re on tour in Sept. in Europe with Mothership and Elephant Tree. Info comes care of the PR wire:

STONED JESUS PILGRIMS

STONED JESUS Announce New Album Details!

Watch Out for Pilgrims This September!

On September 7th STONED JESUS will deliver their next solid slab of progressive stoner rock on Napalm Records: Pilgrims.

With their fourth album the Ukrainian trio offers much more than an average desert session: Pilgrims is a rather multi-faceted affair mixing groove with noise rock elements, lots of proggy infusions and maybe even a sick bass line reminiscent of good old Deftones (“Thessalia”). Giants such as Mastodon and Melvins come to mind since STONED JESUS can’t be pigeonholed.

The band comments on the new album:

“This record was inspired by our relentless touring and the feelings you get – or more precisely you lose – because of it. It’s weird how disconnected one becomes when constantly surrounded by people. Musically it’s pretty different from what we’ve done, it’s more song-oriented but simultaneously more challenging than before – sonically and structurally”

The full track listing of Pilgrims reads as follows:
1. Excited
2. Thessalia
3. Distant Light
4. Feel
5. Hands Resist Him
6. Water Me
7. Apathy

Pilgrims will be available in the following formats:
-1 LTD Edition 4 Page Digipack
-Various LP Gatefolds (different colours)
-Digital Album

Pre-Orders will be available shortly, keep your eyes open!

Stoned Jesus, Mothership & Elephant Tree Announce September Tour

Posted in Whathaveyou on March 28th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

Holy rat farts that’s a good tour. You’ve got Stoned Jesus, fresh off a year celebrating their 2012 sophomore album Seven Thunders Roar and itching to promote their new album, teaming up with Texas’ Mothership, who by then should be road-testing new material for their next record, and Elephant Tree, who’ll have a new album in the hopper if not already out by the time the tour starts. Three absolutely killer bands, all fired up and ready to bring their best to the assembled masses. It’s an easy one to get excited about, you know, if you like things that are awesome.

The run is presented by Sound of Liberation, who in addition to umpteen festivals throughout the Spring and Fall seasons, specialize in precisely this kind of righteousness. Still, I didn’t see this one coming.

It was announced thusly:

stoned jesus mothership elephant tree tour

We are thrilled to unveil today the dates for an incredible 3-band package taking over European clubs in September!

Featuring the Ukrainian much-loved trio Stoned Jesus (working on a new album to be released by Napalm Records in September), along with Texas live-beasts Mothership (who will promote their last-year highly-acclaimed album “High Strangeness”) and Uk-based doom-explorers Elephant Tree (also sharping up some new tunes for an upcoming album), we believe this bill has the potential to rock your nights!

This will happen from September 13th to 29th in the best European dens. Get in touch with your local rock dealer to get your ticket quick!

Risin Sabotage Release New Single “Serpent”; Polish Tour Announced

Posted in Whathaveyou on March 20th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

risin sabotage poland

Next month, Kiev-based heavy rockers Risin Sabotage take off on a four-date stint through Poland with Weird Tales. It’s basically an extended weekender, and there’s nothing wrong with that whatsoever. They go heralding their just-released new single “Serpent,” which has been posted digitally and may or may not receive a physical pressing. The band has also announced an allegiance for digital distribution through respected countryman purveyor Robustfellow Productions — worth noting that Risin Sabotage appeared on Robustfellow‘s expansive Electric Funeral Cafe Vol. 3 compilation (review here) last year, so it’s not by any means the first time the two parties have worked together — and that will include not only the new single, but the band’s prior single “Sabotage Rising” and their 2017 debut album, Planet Dies, as well.

You can stream the song itself below and it’s a quick and unpretentious bit of heavy rock riffing that asks little for its two and a half minute run more than a nod along to its spaced-out hook and fervent groove. Grunge is an element at play, but the focus seems to be more on a blend of earthy tones and cosmic effects, and it works well in the brief stretch, especially the solo section that closes out.

Dig it:

Soom Set April 20 Release Date for New Album Djebars

Posted in Whathaveyou on March 8th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

soom

Oh, be certain: weirdness abounds on Soom‘s new full-length, Djebars, which the Ukrainian three-piece will issue on April 20 via no fewer than four labels: Robustfellow ProductionsAddicted LabelKvlt ov I and Voron Nest, and the band could hardly be more at home in that weirdness. Enough so that I’d like to hear them do a cross-continental collaboration Queen Elephantine, just to see what comes out of it — wait until you hear “Wheelchair.” They share some of the ritualistic elements one finds in their countrymen an labelmates Ethereal Riffian, but Djebars, and Soom as whole, are on their own wavelength.

The PR wire has the news like this:

soom-djebars

Soom – Djebars – Robustfellow Prods. | Addicted Label | Voron NEST | KVLT OV ?

A lo-fi heavy juggernaut Soom which won the attention of many lovers of low-tuned, dark, vicious, filthy, shake-the-fucking-ground metal are releasing their second album via Robustfellow Prods. on the 20th of April.

Soom, who have previously combined heavy weirdness, hypnotic rhythms, otherworldly chanting and ‘recorded in a cavern’ sound with an ancient mysticism grounded in Ukrainian folk, are ready to go further and project the spirit of their native city through unearthly soundscapes of their sophomore album.

Preserving the traditions of the first album, Soom creates a conceptual story, more uncanny in “spoken words”, more chaotic and deeper in music, combining doom metal with dark side of rave and Slobozhansky folk. The result of this mixture is unpredictable, so make sure you are ready for immersion.

Soom was founded in Kharkiv at the end of 2013. The band was set up on the outskirts of the projects that had been lying in the sources of the Kharkiv stoner sludge scene since 2010. After a lot of changes in consciousness, in 2016 the golden composition was formed: Amorth – drums, Tomrer – bass, Kova – guitar and vocals. For the period from 2013 to 2017, Soom recorded three splits with Pressor, Diazepam, Il and Vena, one EP “Fear and Loathing” and one full-length album “Night on the Meadow”. They also got into the Electric Funeral Café compilation from RobustFellow three times.

Stoned Jesus Sign to Napalm Records

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 14th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

And well fucking earned, I should say. Aside from being the internet’s favorite heavy rock band thanks in no small part to the ongoing proliferation of their 2012 album, Seven Thunders Roar (review here), on YouTube — the clip at the bottom of this post for “I’m the Mountain” has over 8.4 million views — Kiev trio Stoned Jesus have spent the better part of the last several years touring their collective ass off in support of their increasingly progressive output, which draws with equal comfort from punk, heavy rock and metal and creates something of its own from them. Yeah, they have a silly name, but they have done and continue to do important work aesthetically and their ongoing development has made them thrillingly unpredictable.

Accordingly, I have no idea what might be in store for Stoned Jesus‘ fourth album, which will be out later this year as the follow-up to 2015’s The Harvest (review here) and their debut for Napalm. Whatever may come, though, you can count on two things: It will be their own, and they will tour it hard for the next 12 months-plus. Because that’s what they do. And look where it got them.

So once again, well fucking earned.

The PR wire makes it official:

STONED JESUS SIGNS WITH NAPALM RECORDS!

Napalm Records is proud to welcome a new band to their artist roster: Heavy rock trio STONED JESUS have just signed a worldwide deal with the Austrian powerhouse label!

Founded back in 2009 in Kyiv, STONED JESUS have released three highly acclaimed records to date and toured almost all around the globe.

Says guitarist Igor Sydorenko:
“We’re delighted to announce that Stoned Jesus is signing with Napalm Records, one of the biggest and oldest rock/metal labels on the planet! By joining the likes of My Sleeping Karma, Greenleaf, Monster Magnet, Alter Bridge, Powerwolf, Moonspell and many other well-established bands in Napalm’s eclectic roster, we’re getting ready to start the new page in Stoned Jesus’ testament.”

Napalm Records A&R Sebastian Muench comments:
“We are absolutely happy and thrilled to finally anounce the signing of STONED JESUS. In the last couple years I was able to witness STONED JESUS live many times at various Up In Smoke and Desertfest events. The Ukrainian band perfect blend of Stoner, Psych and Prog is absolutely brilliant and we expect nothing less than another masterpiece of a release in 2018. Stoned Jesus, welcome to the family and I hope you feel confortable among your band mates of Greenleaf, My Sleeping Karma, Monster Magnet or Monkey3.”

With their powerful mix of Psych, Stoner, Progressive Rock and Doom, STONED JESUS manage to always create a finest fusion of the heavy but yet still melodic sounds. Emotional lyrics meet a heavy wall of tunes, especially live the band already left their huge stamp in the international stoner rock scene and beyond. And even if you haven’t heard their albums, you probably know “I’m the Mountain” – one of the most popular songs of the genre.

While the band is currently working on their fourth full length record, set to be released with Napalm Records later this year, STONED JESUS will be heavily hitting the road again in 2018!
