Bongmoth - 1.618 (2007)






















This album was released in 2007 but I discovered it only in 2011 and posted it on Forgotten Songs (here). But his author (Jarrod Kirby, from Australia) wrote me recently and gave me the link to Soundcloud (there and below), the complete album featuring more tracks than the one I had posted. This music is more stoner than doom but surely one of the strongest stoner LP ever recorded. Maybe because the man who did it was not a unidimensional riff lover and, the future has shown, the has a wide musical culture (he now plays totally different music, not completely my cuppa tea but excellent anyway). If only to hear the harmonica on "Illumination", one of the best stoner track in history, you must listen to this album. Great great great, even 5 years later.
