PAINTED TOMBS “The Gothic Free Rock Sounds of Painted Tombs” C33 (Foreign Object Damage)

I don’t … I don’t really feel like I have to do any work.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold! The gothic free rock sounds of Painted Tombs!

See? The band pretty much reviewed themselves by titling their tape that. I can’t help it if they want to do my work for me.

OK, fine, so maybe I can add something like, “These desert-blasted tunes hit you full-on like a gravity bong to the dome, scuzzy and grimy and experimental, writhing in the minds of their creators. Beware their snakebit charm!”

Badalamenti meets Monster Magnet, but way less focused. Sometimes you just have to go where the spirit leads you.
