The Lone Crows - The Lone Crows (2013)

These lonely souls (pun intended) set out to rock the world aloud, and boy do they have the chops!

Mixing stoner rock, blues, psychedelic, some hard rock elements, all blended in furiously endless jam sessions, this self-titled re-release of the band’s debut from last year has the honesty and passion of a garage recording, yet at the same time shows the omnipotence of a mature band that has been doing gigs for half a century.

You’ll find in this album nods to musical styles that span from the 60’s to the 90’s, you’ll find a jam session taken straight from the rehearsals in The Ghost (as they  didn’t know they were being recorded) and you’ll find a clear homage to Santana’s ‘Black Magic Woman’ in track number three, Heard You Call.

With nearly fifty minutes of instrumental and vocal prowess, The Lone Crows manage to stuff together in one piece the best bits of rock music in existence, and for that we can’t thank them enough. What we can do, however, is listen to them indefinitely and recommend them to everyone.

Spread the word!


  1. I have seen The Lone Crows countless times and NEVER get tired of them. If you like their CD, you should see them live if you can-POWERFUL and there is a magic they have on stange that just can't be audio recorded!!!

    1. If they ever get closer than 'halfway around the world from me', I'll make a point to see them. I'm familiar with these kind of bands and yeah, they're just better live.
