What I Heard This Morning: Ancestors

It could just be that this was the sort of rock I needed to hear today. It could just be the riffs are right, that the energy is there. Psych rockers, Ancestors, are touring with Tee Pee labelmates, Night Horse, stopping off at the Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands.

"Antler Wings," which was released last year on a split 7," isn't anything you haven't heard before. But, it's an invigorating listen filled with all the scorching Sabbathy, Crimsonish, stoner-fueled blues and power sludge intoxicants you can cram into one song.

Decibel Magazine is hosting the track.

Sabbath-y? Crimson-ish? Sounds like my kind of band. Thanks for this. Also thanks for your review of Blackjazz at No Ripcord. I bought the album and I'm enjoying it a lot.
