BLACK­OUT

BROOK­LYN GREASY GROOVERS MAKE A PIG’S EAR OF AL­BUM NUM­BER THREE THE HORSE (RIDINGEASY)

Kerrang! (UK) - - REVIEWS - JAMES MACKIN­NON

■ HEAD OVER to Black­out’s Face­book page and you’ll find an in­trigu­ing ‘Menu’ link that whisks you to a pic­ture of 99¢ chilli dogs.which makes sense, be­cause lis­ten­ing to The Horse is like hav­ing day-old dol­lar chilli dogs mulched into your ears. It’s not even the waffly sound that fur­ther mud­dies their bloated stoner­isms, or that cack­ling Chris­tian Gordy sounds like he’s flap­ping his gums in a wind tun­nel. It’s that, cru­cially, these ropey grooves are just bor­ing, cap­tur­ing nei­ther men­ace nor blot­toed aban­don. Let Em Ride bangs on a dol­drum lurch for two eter­nal min­utes, then once the band fi­nally do wake up and kick into some se­ri­ous groove they are promptly chucked off into the ditch again. Make no mis­take, the only thing this horse is good for is the glue fac­tory. DOWN­LOAD: Holy Wood. FOR FANS OF: Melvins, Kyuss.
