Dead Meadow – Shivering King And Others

Third album from NYC-based trio

Trending Now

Favourites of both Fugazi and the Super Furry Animals, Dead Meadow have a reputation for bone-crunching volume at their live shows. That doesn’t translate here, but their riff-sprawling heaviness does captivate. “I Love You Too” and “Everything’s Going On”, for instance, emerge midway between Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd and make testosterone aggression sound hazily dreamlike. Singer Jason Simon’s airy vocals are stoner-rock incarnate, but their gloomy acoustics show they’re not one-dimensional riff-mongers. Still, best experienced/endured live.
