Scott Reeder - Weaver's Dawn EP (2008)

Reeder: "I've been getting asked a lot what they sound like — had to think about it for a second... way more of a band vibe than most of my solo record, leaning toward the possibility of pulling something off live in the future.

'Weaver's Dawn' — ended up as kind of a Kyuss vibe with The Foggy Bottom singin'. Some of the vocals were done through tin cans strung together. Had room for some bass stretching out at the end...

'As We Become'... hard to describe. I'd imagine it would be like locking Dave Grohl, Jaz Coleman, David Gilmour and Adam Jones in a studio for a night, even though the next morning you'd probably find Jaz picking his teeth next to a big pile of bones! I recorded this one for the Missus to mark our 20th anniversary. Heavy. Sweet. Haunting.

The artwork is a photo by Alex Solca that's an outtake from the KYUSS 'Sky Valley' shoots. We each had our personal concept stuff we worked on that ended up being completely perfect now for 'Weaver's Dawn'." (via Blabbermouth.net).

Nebula - Heavy Psych EP (2008)

Former Eddie Glass formed Nebula in 1997, releasing the band's first EP, Let It Burn, on tiny Tee Pee Records. Over a decade later, after time served on Sub Pop and Liquor and Poker, Glass and a new bassist and drummer are back on Tee Pee with an album that could have been recorded the day after the Let It Burn sessions. His stinging guitar leads (and gift for artful bursts of noise -- check out the speaker-frying intro to "Aphrodite"), the occasional trips into space via pedals and keyboard accents, and the slow and steady drumming are all in place just as they've always been. There are some surprises, like the two-minute instrumental "Dream Submarine," which pairs bouzouki-like guitars with thunderous timpani bashing. The album's longest track, "The Other Side," is also one of its most melodic, and lives up to the album's title quite well, as it's trippy and somewhat soothing as its fuzzy main riff works its way into your brain. Put simply, if you like any of Nebula's earlier work, not to mention the 1990s work Monster Magnet, Brant Bjork, or Fu Manchu, you'll like this album just fine. (allmusic.com)
