Today we’re thrilled to announce The Golden Grass will bring their sunshiny harmonies and positive vibe the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
With smiles on their faces and catchy melodies in songs like ‘Wheels’ and ‘One More Time’, they bring a brighter take on the heavy ‘70s and still boast plenty of boogie to go with.
The Brooklyn trio released some of this year’s best upbeat psychedelic rock with their self-titled album on Svart Records, earning them acclaim from across the globe for the natural feel of the songs and the hooks that seem to come so naturally from drummer / vocalist Adam Kriney (of Roadburn veterans La Otracina) and guitarist / vocalist Michael Rafalowich (Strange Haze). Rounded out by the warm bass tone of Joe Noval, The Golden Grass’ sound recently earned them a nomination for “Best New Band” from Classic Rock Magazine.
After their first European tour this Fall and the release of a new single, A Curious Case / The Pilgrim, we’re happy to welcome them as they tornado into Roadburn 2015, bringing out new material and a classic sound.
Roadburn Festival 2015 will run for four days from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Get your tickets HERE.

At long last, Profetus will be conjuring their classic Finnish funeral doom, worthy of comparision to Thergothon, Skepticism and Tyranny (with whom Profetus share members), when they play the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Friday, April 10th at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands. In collaboration with Finland’s Blow […]

Founded in 2004 by guitarist Jura Salmi and vocalist Jan-Erik Kiviniemi, Sammal manages to capture a sense of golden moments in Finnish music. Touching on their culture and heart, and with lyrics sung entirely in Finnish, Sammal shows a masterful, natural command of classic rock with nods to Caravan, Thin […]

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Certainly the announcement that vocalist Uta Plotkin will leave Witch Mountain following their Fall US tour with Nik Turner’s Hawkwind places Mobile of Angels, the band’s fourth album overall and third with Plotkin fronting, into a different context. If nothing else, it lets lyrics longing […]

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: When I read that this was a release featuring a former member of Reverend Bizarre, one of my favourite doom bands ever, I thought I knew what to expect. Rollicking doom anthems mixing with a sardonic wit and riffs the size of icebergs. I […]

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: Thergothon. Skepticism. Tyranny. All reasons why the mere description ‘Finnish funeral doom’ had me clamouring to hear this album. Profetus do not disappoint. Their style is utterly, crushingly leaden, yet at the same time delicate and airy, with penetrating church-organ-like synths shining through an endless […]

Lovingly pinched from ThisIsNotAScene: If music is the soundtrack to our lives, evoking memories of people and place then the debut album from UK progressive act Messenger, the enigmatically entitled Illusory Blues will, to these ears, forever be associated with the south eastern corner of Sicily where I first became […]

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: If I were to tell you that Norwegian unusualists Tusmørke spun out from a psychedelic space-rock outfit called Captain Cumulonumbus And His Wondrous Cloudship and claim to be mainly influenced by the Bronze Age, that ought to give you an approximate idea of what […]
