Tonight: Brujas del Sol @ Cafe Bourbon Street

For those who like to make “Bands to Watch” lists, may I kindly submit Brujas del Sol, a new-ish stoner rock trio comprised of Adrian Lee Zambrano (guitars/vocals), Derrick White (bass) and Jason Green (drums), for consideration?

While bands like EYE and Lo-Pan cover the heavier end of the spectrum, Brujas del Sol has settled into a trippy, spacey, hypnotic groove, not unlike bands such as Dead Meadow, Wooden Shjips, Pink Floyd, Pretty Weapons, Black Sabbath. Definitely a band I’M going to be watching (and listening to) in 2012.

Moonliner Vol.1 – recorded by our friends over at Electraplay Studio – is the first of 3 planned EPs that the band plans to release in the next few months and can be downloaded (name your own price) at http://brujasdelsol.bandcamp.com/.

Brujas del Sol performs tonight at Cafe Bourbon Street with Big Shot and Feature Films.

What happens when you make Rush a doom metal band?

I know a lot of people hate Rush but when you slow their music down and turn them into a doom metal band, they sound much more palatable. I’ve been playing around with Audacity a bit, trying to remix their greatest hits and am having a blast turning them into a Black Sabbath-worshipping band. I can’t take create for creating the slowed-down version of “Tom Sawyer” but I’ve been working on my own version. Pretty awesome that somebody slowed down the video too to make it all sync up.
