This is huge music from a huge green monster. What’s not to like?
There’s over an hour’s worth of music on here, spread across four colossal songs. And what damn good songs they are too.
The band jam out riff after riff, exploring psychedelia, doom, stoner and all things rock, all without seeming to break a sweat. This is music to stick on, kick back to and get floored by the giant riffs and trippy vibes that they emanate like something ripe with strange substances.
Epic guitars, powerful drums and a bass that you can feel? Hell yeah, I’m sold. Truth be told it’s very easy to like music like this; it’s got a natural, organic feel to it that just seems right.
Vocals are almost included as an afterthought to the expansive explorations of the music. That’s not to minimise their effect, but they’re just another method of losing yourself in the experience that is The Yeti Has Landed. Where he has landed and where he has come from I don’t know, but I’m glad he’s here as this album is quite the corker.
This is the perfect kind of slow-burner that you can, (and must), listen to over and over again. The first time you know it’s good, but you don’t truly appreciate just how good until you play it a few more times and it has the chance to get inside your head and set up shop. Then there’s no going back.
If you’re partial to this kind of stoner/doom/psychedelic rock type of band, then this is damn near essential listening.
