Caravan Migrates Through Deep Sandscape

Band: Om
Album: Gebel Barkal 7"
Origin: U.S.A. (California)
Genre: Stoner Rock, Psychedelic Rock
Year: 2008

For those who don't know Om yet, it's the band formed by the rythm section of Sleep (Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius) and their style is often described as stoner rock meets Tibetan chanting. This is their first release since Hakius left the band and was replaced by drummer Emil Amos (Grails, Holy Sons). It's part of Sub Pop's Singles Club, limited to 1500 copies and it contains two tracks. The first is Gebal Barkal which manages to keep Om's core business (repetitive stoner rock) fresh by diverting from the old lineup's sound. This is  followed by (version) which is essentially the same song but with added sound effects making it even more psychedelic (especially the organ at the end!). Enjoy!
