A KEEN EYE FOR THE OBVIOUS (STICKMAN) KKK NORWEGIAN STONER ROCK GOOFS SWAGGER BACK AFTER 13-YEAR HIATUS
■ STONER ROCK isn’t exactly known for its sense of urgency. Even by the haziest genre standards, however,thulsa Doom are loose. Named after the baddie from Conan and cutting their tunes with Scandi post-hardcore sharpness and the velvety indulgence of classic rock, it seemed like they’d simply drifted into the ether following 2005’s Keyboard, Oh Lord! Why Don’t We?.they’re back now, though, with original vocalist Papa Doom in tow – and they’re still ultra-cool. From outrageously Thin Lizzy-indebted opener Lady Nina to Baby, Hate It’s hip-shakingly mischievous climax, it’s wilfully don’t-give-a-fuck stuff from musicians with too many miles on the clock not to nail it. Get down! DOWNLOAD: Lady Nina. FOR FANS OF: Refused,thin Lizzy.
