KARMA TO BURN ARE BURNING UP THEIR KARMA WITH NEW ALBUM AND TOUR
Behind the scenes, Appalachian Incantation is seemingly at odds with itself; the record was produced by Scott Reeder (ex-Kyuss) which is a slam dunk, but it’s being released by Napalm Records, definitely a head-scratcher. But who really cares what label is on the spine? The record sounds pretty much like you’d expect — deep, dirty bluesy riff after riff in that laid back desert (Appalachian?) groove. I’d wager that longtime fans are gonna dig it, and it might even gain the band a few new fans who came of age during their hiatus. At the very least, how can you resist bobbing your head to these tasty stoner jams?
Stream “Waiting for the Western World,” “Forty One” and “Forty Five” from the new album on Karma to Burn’s MySpace page. UK fans can see the band live this very week, while U.S. fans can catch them on tour in May with Year Long Disaster [featuring Daniel Davies (son of The Kinks’ Dave Davies) on guitar], a band cut from the same stoner rock cloth as KtB.
