Samsara Blues Experiment - One With The Universe (2017)
The fourth album from this German band.
Samsara Blues Experiment is a trio on this album with a lineup of guitars, synths, bass, drums and vocals.
I have reviewed their previous three albums for # 1 of this blog. You will find my reviews here, here and here.
I am kind of captivated by this band and their stoner rock. Their stoner rock has a lot of post rock and classic rock influences too.
There is indeed a lot of interesting details and some influences from classic rock here. I have seen that some has even compared this album with albums from Grand Funk Railroad, one of the truly classic US arena rock bands.
The Hammond organ sound from the synths is a very nice sound and adds another dimension to their music. Music which is not particular flowery and exciting. But stoner rock is what stoner rock it. It is nice in small portions and it has a hypnotic effect.
This fifty minutes long album is not outstaying it's welcome and it delivers some good guitar solos too. The songs are good and the details are good too. I like this band and I also like this album a lot.
Check out this good album if you want to get a taster of stoner rock.
