Some funky endless jams

Don't want to be only reposting videos from Stoned Meadow of Doom, but yeah this guy makes it difficult to not find good music on his channel...

I wanna share two albums that have some common points, in that they are more psychedelic than purely stoner, and have a little funky taste. These are both instrumental albums, but never boring, actually totally captivating as the melodies are really constantly changing and bringing contrast.

These are just awesome albums !!! Listen to them !

Tumbleweed Dealer - Tokes, Hatred and Caffeine
Hailing from Canada, this band has made some really good records previously, but this one immediately captured me.

Same for this band, coming from Belfast, I listened to their previous albums, had a nice impression, but THIS ONE! This one is a GOOD ONE!! Rock on guys!

New Planet of Zeus !!

new album, new tone. Great sound, but here were my first impressions : I felt like it had lost a bit of its groove... The voice is different too, more casual, and I liked a lot the roughness and brutality of the first albums. But then I let it decant a little bit, gave it a few more listens, and actually ended up playing this album 3, 5 times in a row... So yeah, the tone has changed, it's definitely a new atmosphere, darker, bitter and the result is quite addictive!

Planet of Zeus - Them Nights

PS: This album is not so new anymore, that's just because I made a draft of it few months ago and decided to let my impressions solidify...

Hypnose, mushrooms and groove.

Okay I have a lot to catch up on my recent listenings...!

So let's start with this pure gem. Something that will bring you very high in groove land. Talking about Mushrooms Project, and this album Undergrass, which doesn't sound like anything else I have heard. At first I wasn't even sure if it would classify into electronic music or rock. It's characterized by a laid back tempo, being simultaneously quite slow-paced but very entrancing. It's impossible not to vibrate with dat groove. The whole album is absolutely hypnotic, dark, industrial, and reminds me a little of Pharaoh Overlord.

Next, digging deeper into that hypnotic vibe, I finally came across something in the same vein as Mushrooms Project. This is amazing :
