Black Pussy
Black PussyWhen The Rolling Stones wrote their classic track "Brown Sugar" it was originally titled "Black Pussy," but record-label politics got in the way: It was deemed too offensive and the powers at work refused to put it out. So the band had to change the name to something that was easier for the general public to swallow.

At least that's how the legend goes.

For Dustin Hill, the creative mastermind and songwriter behind Black Pussy, it sounded like a fantastic band name. It encapsulates exactly what the band is: a sex-charged, '70s-influenced, hide-your-daughters-because-they're-coming-to-town rock 'n' roll band that sounds like Tarantino directing a Thin Lizzy video in the low desert. Considering the name comes from a song that directly speaks out against racism, Hill isn't willing to entertain the notion that the band intends to offend anyone.

Black Pussy's heavy, bluesy sound and clear influences of Kyuss, Hendrix and The Who have found a niche in the ever-growing, global stoner-rock movement. The band exclusively uses vintage Sunn gear, pushing a massive 44 speakers when playing live and tends to land shows with the heaviest, sludgiest bands in the Portland, Oregon scene. However, their classic, upbeat, relentlessly hooky tracks
have led to Hill coining the phrase "stoner pop," like The Cars meets Black Sabbath. The band's catchy music tends to seduce anyone, even those who walk in off the street after seeing the intriguing band name on the marquis of the venue.

Black Pussy's 2012 debut album On Blonde is Hill's baby: It was written and mostly recorded by him alone, though guitarist Ryan McIntire, drummer Dean Carroll, bassist Aaron Poplin and keyboardist Keith O'Dell were later added to the band. The record, which kicks off with the rip of a bong and sounds like a drug-riddled midnight misadventure in a '70s muscle car, has carried them through successful
and nearly endless touring of the U.S for the past year and a half, and even found its way across the ocean as well: The track "Blow Some Steam Off" ended up on the February 2013 Metal Hammer compilation.

This year will see two new releases from Black Pussy: Their contact high-inducing, 22-minute psychedelic opus "Galaxies" will appear on a split release with the band biblical proof of UFOs, and their much-lusted-for sophomore album, Less Info More Mojo, which was recorded and produced in the California desert by stoner-rock legend Brant Bjork, will be out in the fall. White Orange, Hill's heavier project, will also be releasing an EP entitled Onawa on August 6.

Additionally, Black Pussy will be touring extensively with ex-Kyuss legends Vista Chino this fall.

Luna Sol
Luna SolLuna Sol is a high mountain stoner rock band, fronted by veteran singer and lead guitarist David Angstrom (Hermano, Supafuzz). Angstrom moved to the mountains just north of Denver in 2012 and started soaking in the strange but relaxed mountain communities around him. Inspired by the local news and folklore, Angstrom started writing the songs that would become “Blood Moon” and put together Luna Sol with local musicians—drummer Pat Gill (The Feds, ’76 Pinto), guitarist and vocalist Shanda Kolberg (The Swanks), and bassist and vocalist Shannon Fahnestock (The Swindlers).
 
A drive into the mountains with Angstrom shows that “Blood Moon” captures the removed from society lifestyle of the Rockies. Songs “Leadville,” “Standley Lake,” and “Death Mountain” all come with stories from Angstrom that seem like bizarre mountain folklore, like cautionary tales read to children in books with colorful drawings. Angstrom clearly loves the morbid strangeness with a fascinated curiosity of his new homeland and shares it with us here on “Blood Moon.”
 
The album was recorded at Sierra Estates in Colorado, and the album artwork was designed by celebrated Denver tattoo artist Christel Perkins of Sol Tribe. The basic tracks were finished in a week, and in keeping with the long-standing tradition of the stoner and desert rock communities, members of the Luna Sol extended family tree contributed additional elements to the recording. John Garcia (Vista Chino, Hermano, Kyuss) adds vocals on “December,” Dandy Brown (Hermano, Orquestra del Desierto) plays bass on “Death Mountain,” Nick Oliveri (Vista Chino, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age) plays bass on “Pretty Rotten,” Greg Martin (Kentucky Headhunters) contributes slide guitar on “Death Mountain,” Dean Smith (Supafuzz) plays bass on “Bridges,” Jason Groves (Supafuzz, Asylum on the Hill) plays bass on “In the Shadows,” and Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses) delivers a keys performance on the Hammond B3 for “Your War.”  
 
The album is dark, heavy, and filled with hooks. You’ll keep the motor running until your song is over. John Garcia calls “Blood Moon” “a dark twisted ride down the mountain… It rocks.”
 
LUNA SOL’s album BLOOD MOON is available in on Cargo Records in Europe and Slush Fund Recordings in the US.  Spread the rock.
