FREE DOWNLOAD: Bong Hits From the Astral Basement Volume 2

Where'd the time go? Opening on blasts of smoke and fuzz, 2013 offered a fat stash of stoner rock stickiness, nowhere better captured than in Heavy Planet's basement. We sift through countless stems and seeds to share what we believe are the finest sonic buds you haven't heard. Sure, we wax and wince on Sabbath, Kyuss, Sleep, and Clutch as much as the next blog. But our bread and bud-butter is offering you, the tirelessly faithful, an avenue through which to find your new favorite band.

The release of Bong Hits from the Astral Basement: Volume I saw sixty-one vastly underappreciated artists reaching speakers on a scale that transcended language barriers and wet coughs. Since 2008, Heavy Planet has strived to be your go-to, crafting easy introductions between bands and listeners. With Volume I, our middlemen received a staggering, humbling response in terms of both submissions and downloads. As a new year briskly approaches and promising new sounds emerge from breezeways and back alleys, we're stoked to offer a beefed-up Volume II.

Our repeat offenders are what keep this thing alive. Heavy Planet is proud to be part of a music scene boasting the heaviest purple-fiber jams and most absolutely loyal fans. These hand-picked nugs embody just a fraction of our gratitude to those of you who keep coming back and never fail in spreading the good word. Clear a spot on the couch and strap on some headphones. Here's to you,comrade.

Thank you and Happy New Year,

Heavy Planet
