Lowdrive – Roller
(Outlaw 23 Records/Cargo Records – 2018)
One of the finest and tightest bands to come out of Sheffield in years are this loud quartet of all things Stoner and more with it's heavy slabbing, ballsy attitude and solid-laden grooves.
They are made up of Andy Sawf (Lead Vocals - ex-Induce); John Hodgson (Guitar - ex-Goat Leaf/Warrior Soul), Mat Washington (Drums - ex-Goat Leaf) and Martin Gargalovic (Bass) that deliver this fired-up 9-tracker into your foresaken lugholes that was recorded, edited and engineered at Toolmakers Recording Studio in Sheffield by Nathan Bailey. Highlights on here include the title track 'Roller'; the bluesy 'Into The Fire, the haunting 'n' slow slipper-stomping 'Endless Rain' and the closing southern-like epic 'Reflection'.
Make sure you obtain this album one way or another and see them a few times live as they never disappoint ever.
