Formed just over a year ago by guitarist Ross Dolan, vocalist Laura Dolan, Nick Vogelpohl (bass) and Nate Wagner (drums) Electric Citizen have had a busy year turning heads and ears onto their dark and esoteric style of haunting and unhallowed ’60s West Coast rock with decidedly British-influenced heavy psychedelia. After signing with RidingEasy Records, the hotly tipped band will release their debut album, Sateen, on July 1.
For now, Electric Citizen is teaming up with Roadburn to bring you an early stream of the entire album. Listen to Sateen below, and let us know what you think in the comments. Get the album HERE.
After performing recent shows with Dead Meadow, Spirit Caravan and Fu Manchu, Electric Citizen will be touring the US with the Budos Band and Wolfmother throughout July.

Lovingly pinched from Echoes and Dust: Ştiu Nu Ştiu are a curious musical assemblage from Sweden. The band consists of Kalle Mattsson (Moon & Sun, Arms and Legs, King Kong Kobra), Martin Sandström (Caterpillar Ghost, Jeniferever), Per Tholander (The Search) and Billie Lindahl (Promise and the Monster). So it’s a […]

Lovingly pinched from About.com: Heavy Metal: Deranged and out for punishment, Lord Mantis are raging out torment on their third album, Death Mask. Though their career started off shaky with their debut Spawning The Nephilim, the sinister undertones of 2012’s Pervertor proved fruitful. Mashing doom, sludge, and black metal together […]

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: What sets Brooklyn trio The Golden Grass apart from the hundreds of bands the world over who cull the bulk of their influence from the heavy rock of the early ’70s and / or the original psychedelic era is a relentlessly positive mindset. Where the current […]

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: I don’t know about the rest of you, but I like a good old twiddle. Now, I know this is a site primarily concerned with monolithic, primal riffs the size of tower-blocks and bellowing gentlemen with beards like rhododendron bushes, but we’re taking a […]

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: This sophomore release from New York City’s Serpentine Path offers further proof that these guys are absolute masters of doom. As many people know by now, this band is made up of current or former members of bands like Electric Wizard, Unearthly Trance, and […]

Praise for HORNSS‘ No Blood, No Sympathy from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Behold, the first full-length, facegrinding slab of psychedelic stoner rock malevolence from these San Francisco heavies, the all-caps and very plural HORNSS, who appeared on that Monsters Of Mission Rock comp lp we listed last time. Hell yeah. A […]

Lovingly pinched by CVLT Nation: I think attempting to debate what Jon Mueller has written on the newly-released Death Blues record will get me straight back to where I was with Chrome’s Feel It Like A Scientist, so I’d prefer not to go in that direction for the sake of […]

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: It should stand to reason that any Dylan Carlson solo outing released under the banner of Drcarlsionalbion (also stylized in all-caps or all-lowercase) should have a certain amount of continuity with Earth, since as much as that band has become a rotating-member collaboration, Carlson‘s guitar […]

Lovingly pinched from About.com: Heavy Metal: The long and storied history of crossover greats Corrosion Of Conformity continues with more twists and turns with the release of IX, the ninth (you guessed it) full-length from the band. After the release of In The Arms Of God in 2005, Corrosion Of […]
