DECEMBER 12th - Back in the woods
@brogestarck: #stonerxmas 12: Halfway through its time for an all time favorite: Pearls & Brass. 70s inspired and amazing musicianship!
Pearls & Brass is an absolutely A-MA-ZING trio from Nazareth, Pennsylvania. Probably one of my all time favorite bands.
They only did 2 albums, and I’ve absolutely no idea where they are today. There’s no website, theres no label, theres no MySpace, Twitter, Facebook page or anything. Only thing I’ve managed to find out is that apparently they stopped playing together a few years back.
What. A. Shame.
The instrumental craftsmanship combined with the unique 70’s inspired songwriting, is really something special. On their self-titled debut album its more bluesy, and on the latter “The Indian Tower” its more psych/stoner-ish, but both of them are really - in a word - breathtaking. And I’m SO annoyed that I’m probably never going to see these guys live. Their guitarist have a solo-project tho… But he will have his own post next sunday.
I obviously couldnt find anything studio-recorded on Youtube, so I tried with an audio-post. But really. Really! Trust me on this, and go and buy:
UPDATED: YAY! I just found at that they are actually playing 1 date in their home town in a few days! There’s hope!
