PICK OF THE WEEK: 'WEIRD THINGS' BY PRESSOR
It's been a while since I gave you a solid recommendation but the Russian foursome PRESSOR has definitely earned such distinction. We've been following these lads from the early days, back when they split that fantastic record with Ukraine's Soom and the now defunct Idaho band Diazepam back in '13. Their newest spin, 'Weird Things' (2018) is described by the band as 'stoner-doom with syths, cut down by lumberjacks from Kostroma," referring to their historic city in western Russia.
Pressor's new album is tingling with electricity, alive with weird quirks and buzzes, and Pressor lay down the heavy like falling timber -- one slammin' riff after another. This record just does not stop! The album art captures the vibe perfectly. 'Weird Things' hits your senses like psychedelics, but with a dark, downtuned undercurrent rooted in the Electric Wizard school of doom, but more aggressive still. Certainly one of the year's Heavy Best.
...and if you dig it, please show your support of the band!
