JOHN WILKES BOOTH
JOHN WILKES BOOTH
SELF-RELEASED

The rumbling and monolithic sludge rock pushed forth by Long Island’s John Wilkes Booth evokes the hesher wares of Kyuss, Monster Magnet, and Scissorfight, as this crusty quartet demonstrate heavily doped-up grooves equipped with memorable hooks and organic musicianship on its four-track sampler. Fully trained in the art of rocking with bloodshot-eyed exuberance, this unit’s sinewy rhythms and bong-fueled jams bust out of the speakers like gangbusters on tracks like “L.I.P.”, while “Unknown Waiting” takes the listener on a rowdy ride down a road well-traveled by bands like Cathedral, Clutch, and Nebula. Spacey enough to be considered cosmic yet providing those gargantuan vibes that weight them down to the ground, John Wilkes Booth’s self-titled endeavor is a worthy companion to your stoner rock discs and blacklight poster collection.
