The Re Stoned – Reptiles Return
When word gets out that The Re-Stoned are releasing a new album, everyone knows what to expect: pure fucking greatness.
And Reptiles Return is nothing short of true greatness. Masterfully arranged instrumental psyche rock with twists and turns that take you on an epic aural journey – and at half the price you’d pay visiting ‘ol Trixie down the street *—rimshot*.
The sheer brilliance and musical prowess this band exhibits on this record is another prime example of how good of a year 2016 is turning out to be (especially in terms of music). Trump may be president in a few months… but hey, we can laugh at our own misfortune and drown our sorrows in bong rips, beer, and good tunes.
#8. Roots Pattern
Like an homage to classic folk-rock of yesteryear, this 3 and a half minute masterpiece has some of the best mandolin I’ve ever heard. Jimmy Page would be proud!
