big*B Fostermother slowly grooves its way through the ground with brute distorted guitar and bass, a deep psychedelic stoner rock trench remains.
The vocals are more powerfully supplied with less reverb, which brings the voice more to the fore than on the previous album; this was the exact right decision! In addition, the melancholic lightness remains as a contrast to the rhythm faction. Fostermother has raised the bar damn high already in February. They've delivered and they have done it awesome! Favorite track: Hedonist.

Professor Groove I imagine the opening guitar onslaught on ‘Hedonist’ is exactly the sound of a dying planet in the gaping maw of Galactus… just crushing! The rest of the album treats you to the same level of destruction with intermittent interludes of dark and thoughtful beauty. It’s worth whatever price they ask. Favorite track: Hedonist.

FOSTERMOTHER made an impression within the stoner doom scene with their self-titled debut album, which Everything Is Noise described as, "hitting both soft and hard in all the right places, leaving oddly-comforting destruction in its wake." Now a three-headed hydra with the addition of drummer Jason Motamedi alongside guitarist/singer Travis Weatherred and bassist Stephen Griffin, the band signed to Californian heavy rock powerhouse Ripple Music for the release of follow-up LP "The Ocean". This massive7-tracker cranks it up on all levels: it's darker, harsher, slower, fuzzier, more rumbling, and uncompromising in its ability to drag listeners into the darkest alleys of the human soul.
