Lead Us To The Ocean - The Coalminer's Sect

Posted by Shichi , 10 August 2011 · 483 views

The Coalminer's Sect is a group of fuzzed-out psych rock, featuring members from Three Orange Whips, Loose Unit and The Volcanics, and recorded over many beer bottles. You can hear it through the rawness of the album, Lead Us To The Ocean, which gives it a certain charm.

The Coalminer's Sect mentions bands like Dinosaur Jr and Mudhoney as influences and it can be heard clearly in the first track, Lead Us To The Ocean, which leaps out at and steamrolls the speakers. The band then mellows out with some bluesy ballads before picking up the pace again with Hands of Time, with its addictive, looping main guitar riff. The fun continues with the rumbling bass of Aw C'mon and final track Set You Free, which again features another great, addictive riff.

A strong debut release featuring some kicking riffs, recommended if you like your stoner rock with a bit of a country/blues twist.
