Red Supergiant by Miss Lava
Released: Feb 2013
Label: Small Stone Records
Maybe because Johnny Lee sings in a Euro-accented high register rather than bellowing grunge-style, this Portuguese foursome sounds both more NWOBHM and more garage-revival than most Small Stone Records stoners. Lee starts out confessing that he hides inside his "Desert Mind," but there's not much Kyuss-type peyote or tumbleweed residue in Miss Lava's psych metal. Too few riffs grab hold, but choruses hook clearly throughout, and momentary inadvertent swipes from "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" and Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well" don't hurt. The melody of "Ride" even feels more space age than stone age.
