Zac's "Double Dose": Empire Escorts / Groan


Empire Escorts: The Weather Single 

Empire Escorts are a Jersey-shore powerhouse building a sound from a stoner rock foundation. Getting started in 2009 the four-some built a following through their accessible sound and balls to the wall performances. Dropping an EP in 2011 the bands public witness increased and they found tunes being played at their local radio station. Well, they are back with their latest single "The Weather", a heavy blues inspired tune that could certainly make radio play. The guitar and bass are layered thick, something welcomed here at Heavy Planet. The video, below, was shot around photogenic Jersey sites, some which have now been washed away by Hurricane Sandy. Its good to know they can still be visited through this crisp produced and well shot video. Check out "The Weather" below and if you dig it the guys are kind enough to offer a "name your price" price-tag at bandcamp.

Groan: The Divine Right of Kings 

67% true doom. Doom 'n' roll. Call it what you may, but Groan have made a hell of a combination of classic rock and the gloomiest of doom. These UK stoners started billowing smoke in late 2009. Since then they have been delivering the goods and, in turn, receiving some worthy praise. Their latest The Divine Right of Kings was released at the end of October [2012], making plenty of friends. You know its worth a listen if it made Bill's Picks over The Soda Shop. Check out the psychedelic video for Atomic Prophets below and you can pick up a copy from Soulseller Records.
