RIYL: Dopesmoker

Label: Outer Battery Records

Wake up, you burnouts.  Make a pot of coffee, rip whatever’s left in your bong from last night, and feast your eyes on the newest monstrosity from Outer Battery Records.  Arctic is a sludgy, stoney bluesadelic three-piece cranking out some of the heaviest riffs you’ve heard this year.  When Figgy, Nuge and Frecks aren’t getting your eardrums off, they’re shredding pavement on their skateboards.  It’s safe to say these fellas don’t mess around.

Now, it may just be an astonishing amount of Saturday morning laziness, but I can’t seem to find any audio of this thing online.  I did manage to track down a pretty heavy cut of the band live, though, so check that out below and pick yourself up an icy slab after the ‘buy’ link.  Outer Battery product usually doesn’t last long before the hoards of vinyl addicts snatch it all up, so get it now or get out of the way.

Some good news for all ye internationals.  Outer Battery has a pretty amazing shipping price for you guys, but there aren’t many of those left.  Get one while ya can!
