Stoner Rock LP Review: Legends Of The Desert- 12" (Azure Blue Vinyl lim. 200)

Genre: Stoner Rock
Release Date: May 11, 2018
Label: H42 Records
Legends Of The Desert- 12" is classic stoner rock captured on limited edition azure blue vinyl and various other colors.  The vinyl is beautiful and if your favorite color happens to be blue your eyes will be smiling.  The colorful art work of the LP cover is eye-catching as well. Maybe that may not be a relevant aspect of music for some people however I look at the entire package and enjoy it to the fullest.

This music is in relation to the Desert Fest. And it is music that matches my taste buds just fine. In addition to being a collector of vinyl, especially limited-edition colored vinyl, I do like to actually play the music and enjoy it rather than putting it away to keep it all minty fresh with hopes of cashing in on some poor sap that just has to have the LP.

The artist featured on this platter are as follows:
Fatso Jetson, Yawning Sons, Waterways and a solo project under the direction of Mario Lalli & Mathias Schneeberger.

This is great instrumental rock music, with the exception of the opening track, “Semi Lost” by Fatso Jetson, that has some good vocals. Why wouldn’t anyone want to listen to a band with a name like that? If even just out of curiosity! Well, they are good even though they have a decidedly different albeit funny name.

A lot of this music is very twangy with effects, just a bit similar to surf music in my estimation, but a lot heavier (not heavy as metal) and a lot more complex of course. This is just cool stuff that doesn’t last nearly long enough! That is a compliment, not a take away.

The B side offers up two brilliant instrumental jams that will leave an impression on you and I bet you will be seeking out more from these bands once you hear these tracks.  I know I am very interested in exploring more and if you are a fan of stoner rock this is a must-have.

For those of you interested, I checked out the Bandcamp page where this is listed and it said there are only 5 copies left! You can get it for $18 plus shipping from there or pay double that on Amazon. Just a helpful hint if you want to grab a copy.
