Anyone heard this band?  I stumbled across them and the brief snippet I heard caught my ear so I'm checking Spodify.  Inserted if anyone else has any opinion?

I like their sound quite a bit.

Dark, heavy (but not quite metal), lots of fuzz, some psychedelia.



The best lack all conviction, while the worst   
Are full of passionate intensity.

I've seen them live a couple of times. I find them a bit one dimensional but their one idea is quite nice.

Been all over them for a while.

Posted a few songs of theirs and have featured in my what album are you listening to posts

"Passover" and "Phosphene Dream" are really good albums.


Just checked my last.fm stats and they are joint 58th on my most listened to artists stats.

I think those that like The Black Angels might well enjoy checking the band Little Barrie out. Simmilar vibes to them in my opinion

It is good, but "Passover" and "Phosphene Dream" are better IMO.
