The Midnight Toker. Fuzzy Drone-tastic 70's sounding retro rock.

Ash-covered Ghoul It is too easy to call Bison Machine the second coming of Zeppelin or some such, but though the family resemblance is unmistakable it is unfair to reduce the efforts of one band to those of a forebear. This album definitely calls back to life the spirit of hard rock from days past, but it stands on its own two feet as a skillful work, all the better for its evocation of a fantastical landscape and atmosphere, doom-laden and misty but not overwhelmingly somber or heavy. There's also a touch of the psychedelic, here, but as if the colors are icy and earthy rather than bright gem-tones. Favorite track: Old Moon.
