For Your Listening Pleasure: Snailface by Jayson

Two things. Remember when I used to do For Your Listening Pleasure? The whole thing with that was this feeling that reviews should be timely. Like if something came out 2 years ago you shouldn’t review it; but if you wanted to talk about it, it should have its own category. The other thing is that while I certainly enjoy and champion a lot of esoteric and/or challenging music, I also like to rock. I guess this is also kind of review, since the Snailface albums have been out for a while now, but the super limited edition tape release is pretty new.

So here is the deal: stoner rock. For those that don’t know, Snailface are excellent noise rockers Kowloon Walled City playing classic style stoner rock. Heavy riffs, but the whole thing has a clean sound; big 70s rock style vocals. The songs are all hilarious too, with the entire second album (Snailface II) being about Bigfoot-style monsters. What is really not to love here? Nothing, that’s what. I like having some music that just rocks and doesn’t have to be taken even remotely seriously. I feel it’s good for you.

Drug School

The Almasty (Kelermes Mirror)

Both of these are available as free downloads or now as a super limited edition two tape release.
