Red Fang – “Blood Like Cream”
Portland, OR’s Red Fang are gonna get a lot of comparisons to labelmates Baroness, and those comparisons are warranted, but they have even more in common with Florida’s Torche: Both bands play high-gloss, high-impact, catchy-as-all-fuck stoner-sludge that actually probably pairs better with beer than herb (assuming it’s an either/or scenario). “Blood Like Cream” is the first single to be released from Red Fang’s forthcoming third LP, Whales And Leeches; the thing just stomps from the first drum hit, but when it shifts into the brain-frying bridge two-thirds of the way through, it takes flight and soars. Listen.
