I’ve been listening to this a bunch lately and thought I’d share it. Olde Growth, who I heard about randomly somewhere online, is a bass/drums two-piece. I have a bit of a thing for bands with that kind of lineup ever since I saw godHeadSilo in the basement of the Black Hawk Labor Temple in Waterloo in ’94. (In fact, I’m interested in a drummer for Distant Trains if any of my drumming friends are interested in getting in on that.) The sound is heavy sludge doom kind of like a backwoodsy Electric Wizard. They’re giving the download of this album out for free at http://oldegrowth.bandcamp.com and I found a web site for the band at http://www.oldegrowth.com/. No word on whether you can get it on CD but the cover art looks like a screen-printed rough cardboard sleeve so I suspect such an artifact does in fact exist.
