With a heady whiff of stoner, Clutch and Black Sabbath-esque vibes, Telekinetic Yeti deliver over 40 minutes of psychedelic doom rock/metal for the listener’s delectation. Add in some Red Fang and Mastodon and you have a very full album.
There are only two members of Telekinetic Yeti, but they sound as huge as a band with more than double this.
Here we have an album awash with huge riffs and in-your-face guitars. They are heavy, fuzzed up and ready to rock. These are backed up with drumming that’s both intricate and forceful, depending on what it needs to be at any given time.
The songs are catchy, memorable and feature an abundance of hooks. The music also has plenty of depth to it, increasing the replay factor of the album.
The vocals are a gruff affair that are personable and charismatic. They are the icing on the cake, sitting atop the very moreish and tasty album like a crowning glory. I also like, however, that they know when to take a back seat to the music; some tracks here are instrumental, and don’t suffer from being so either.
Abominable is not at all abominable. Abominable is extremely enjoyable and boasts songs that are destined to stick firmly in your thinkbox for many moons to come.
