Dead Meadow – Old Growth

Dead Meadow found their amps at your grandparents garage sale. The sounds of ancient vacuum tube amplification is the centerpiece for their album Old Growth. Dead Meadow play a slow, groove-laden brand of rock with a heavy southern swagger. The band even venture into the realm of psychadelia, prompting some to file them under “stoner rock.” Dead Meadow fall upon a most unusual circumstance however. They duplicate the sounds of 60s and 70s rock so well, that they serve no purpose. If you wanted to hear this kind of music, you would do better to dig up your parent’s old vinyl than to waste some hard earned dough on what is essentially a musical replica of the real thing.
