New Stoner Rock, Released Within the Last 24 Hours

Got tipped off on this one by "FDJ" on bandcamp, and purchased after a single listen.  Not much information available on this band, but I am a sucker for bands with a 1970's sound, great guitar bass and drums, and fresh songwriting.  The Riven's "Blackbird" has all of this, in generous amounts.  Vocalist Charlotta is excellent, but this would still be a great album if she were left out.  

First, let's go with "Killer On The Loose", with a real retro feel:

Next, the lead-off track, "Ain't No Doctor".  Check out the diversity of awesome rock contained within this one tune.  This is a first release, but I can't imagine this is the first band for any of these people; it is simply too good:

You just heard two tunes off of this release, and these plus three others are available here for 4 euros, which translates into about 5 dollars.  
The Riven is:
Charlotta Ekebergh - Vocals
Arnau Diaz - Guitar
Max Ternebring - Bass Guitar
Olof Axegärd - Drums

Looking forward to learning more about this band, and hearing what comes next.  In the meantime, these five tracks tell me a lot.  Hope you have enjoyed these tracks too.  Until next time  -ULTRA
