We've longed for the day when LA-via- DC translants DEAD MEADOW would drop a studio album that matched the power of one of the best shows on the planet. With 'Old Growth' the firm of Simon, Kille and McCarty have delivered a remarkably clear, powerful and confident recording that should elevate the trio into the pantheon of the great guitar bands of our time. Recorded at Sunset Sound (in the studio where many of the tracks for Led Zeppelin 'IV' were laid down), Jason Simon is revealed as a kind of modern Jimi on the axe, while the crack ensemble behind him provides a punishing groove and backbeat. Darlings of both the stoner rock and the modern psychedelia worlds (and featured in the new movie named after one of their tracks), DEAD MEADOW transcend both and have created a sound and audience uniquely their own.
