EL HOMBRE MONTANA
Stoner rock en espanol? Yup, courtesy of Argentina’s Los Natas, a trio whose latest 11-track Billy Anderson produced endeavor puts the pedal to the metal on cuts like the hammering groove on “Amanecer Blanco” without sacrificing the band’s typical spaciousness embedded in “Sigue, Sigue” and cranks out some hard-edged, smoke-friendly jams that sound like an amalgamation of Kyuss, Monster Magnet, and Nebula. In Spanish, of course. One listen of the sprawling seven-minute epic “El Ciervo” should hook you into this act’s hypnotically hazy hard rock, but even if you’re still not convinced, the band’s spacier elements found on “De las Cenizas, El hombre” should rope you in. Bring some good supply, an English-Spanish dictionary, and block out an hour to fully enjoy this one.
