Evolotto’s latest five-track sojourn finds the gritty trio laying down some aggressive, angst-ridden rock that wouldn’t sound out of place sandwiched between Helmet and High on Fire. With driving guitars commandeering the assault while the rhythm section hammers you into a hypnotic submission, it’s hard not to feel the sludgy stoner rock seep through your pores when this Toledo, OH outfit uncoils its Melvins meets Clutch style on your stunned senses. If you dig loud music that goes deeper than arena rock fodder, SMILE is your kind of 15-minutes of fun.
