CORTEZ: The Depths Below


It's been five years since Cortez' last full length (self-titled) album, and they have improved their skills by a significant amount.  They have clearly put a lot of time and effort into this release, and it is worthy of your $8 if you are a fan of stoner rock.  These guys have taken a huge step towards Stoner Rock Kingpin status.  My early favorites on this album are the trilogy "In The Shadows Of The Ancients", parts I, II and III (tracks 3-5) but here is a good starter track, entitled "Dead Channel": 

Here's track #2, "Poor and Devoid":

And here is my favorite from their 2012 self-titled album, entitled "Nice Try".  I have shared this track with quite a few people over the years.  
Cortez is:
Matt Harrington - vocals 
Scott O'Dowd - guitar & backing vocals 
Alasdair Swan - guitar 
Jay Furlo - bass & backing vocals 
Jeremy Hemond - drums
Gonna keep it coming next weekend.  Until then, over and out
