AVER are a 4-piece band coming from Sydney, Australia and few months ago they released their same-tilted debut album. Releases like this one, make me really happy. First of all 'cause it's a massive one and secondly because it's a DIY one and is available for free download by the band.
Anyway let's get to the point. Musically, AVER seem to have discover the missing link between grunge and stoner. Add a pinch of psych/jam in it, stir them up and serve... It's quite hard a grunge-related band to get me hooked but these guys did it. I had discovered them somewhere in the summer but while I kept going back and listened to them again and again, I never made a post about them. Don't know why though.
Everything in this album -melodies, riffs, vocals, guitar, bass, drums...- are top notch. From spacey-stoner "Anti-Matter" to heavy grunge groovness of "Jacob" and from the laid-back chills of "Decay" to the mellow psych jamming of "Stoneage Wasteland", you won't be able to find a reason not to love them. Great stuff!
