Pontiak - Sea Voids LP

Released yesterday is the new "Sea Voids" LP by Pontiak. I only have their split LP with Arbourteum from last year, and apparently this is already their 3rd new record since! Impressive to say the least. And even more impressive that they somehow manage to still release quality music, even at that rate! Now, besides the fact that their names always make me think of cars, Virginia's Pontiak are definitely one of my favourite new acts out there because their monolothic metal infused with southern stoner and some fuzzy psychedelic acid reminds me obviously of Dead Meadow but also of The Walkmen at the same time, and one of their new tracks is riff-worshipping ala Black Sabbath or Led Zep, with the desert feeling of Master of Reality, and the first seconds are equally downtuned as OM . If you're into any of these bands, "Sea Voids" is definitely a safe bet, and for only $13 a pretty cheap one too.

"Sea Voids" is limited to 1,000 copies worldwide and comes in a custom fabricated jacket silk-screened with metallic gold ink, available from Thrill Jockey.
