Domkraft – The End of Electricity (Magnetic Eye Records, 11 November 2016)
Domkraft – Flood (Blues Funeral Recordings, 19 October 2018)
Domkraft – Seeds (Magnetic Eye Records, 30 April 2021)
Happy Friday, y’all! I’m about to send you off into the weekend with THREE whole albums you can jam out to.
Sweden’s Domkraft (compounded from the words for “doom” and “power“) have been churning out the doomy/sludgy/spacey hits for YEARS. (Well maybe not exactly hits — the band described them as “trudging, 10-minute/three chord songs.”)
Their latest record drops today, but the first two are equally worth checking out, so I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss any of them…
River Cult – Halcyon Daze (Magnetic Eye Records / Blackseed Records / Nasoni Records, 09 February 2018)
In the grand tradition of classic power trios like Mountain or Cream, infused with the loud and fuzzy psychedelics of Blue Cheer, Brooklyn’s River Cult ought to be bursting onto radar screens all over the place with their first LP Halcyon Daze. Only five tracks long but with a running time around forty-two minutes, the record came out earlier this year via a handful of labels in New York, Pittsburgh, and Germany — but if it has somehow managed to elude your attention thus far, our job today is to fix that!
