Album Of The Day-Ten East-"Extraterrestrial Highway" (2006)

The Album Of The Day is "Extraterrestrial Highway" by Ten East.


More excellent instrumental/post-psych/post-rock/post-stoner /post-surf guitar-based rock. And it's good stuff!

"Ten East's debut, Extraterrestrial Highway, was originally released in 2006 on Alone Records and is now available exclusively on Lexicon Devil. In terms of mining the pipeline of instrumental, multi-layered, psychedelic desert-rock with a heavy-assed backbeat, Ten East has the supergroup line-up to die for. On this record, Ten East are: Gary Arce (Yawning Man, Fatso Jetson, Sort Of Quartet), Mario Lalli (Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man), Brant Bjork (Kyuss) and Bill Stinson (HOR, Greg Ginn). Their sound is caught somewhere between jazz-like improvisation and rock-solid riffery. Taking inspiration from punk, blues, psychedelia, surf and jazz, the band's sound ably demonstrates creeping influences from such artists as SST standard-bearers Black Flag, Meat Puppets and the Minutemen, as well as The Ventures, Captain Beefheart, Brian Eno, ZZ Top and the improvisations of Monk and Dolphy. In the band's most current line-up, Bjork has left the band, and none other than Greg Ginn himself has replaced him on bass. This is not merely stoner rock, this is a slab of instrumental fury which will blow brain cells. For fans of: Black Flag, Kyuss, King Crimson, Meat Puppets, The Ventures and Hawkwind."
