Carubine - Futuredream,
I know very little about these guys, apart from that they are a Swedish stoner trio who have obviously been heavily influenced by bands such as Soundgarden, Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters. They are direct, in your face, and don’t pretend to be anything except what they are, which is a guitar-driven noise that is going to keep getting in your face until you pay it some serious attention. Bassist/singer Alex Gatica is more than capable of taking centre stage as he is melodic without wimping out, while drummer Robin Kulbay and guitarist Erik Kling play around him and keep the music full on.
I’m not always the biggest fan of stoner rock, but these guys certainly know what they are doing, and they do it well. Fuzzed and distorted, with strong songs to boot, we are going to be hearing a lot more about this band, mark my words.
