Harry Harrison Soooo cool. Soooo psych. GDW has a rock solid rhythm section that swaggers like the ‘Stone Crows’. This combined with a guitarist that possesses the soul of Jimmy Page & a vocalist that commands attention lets these gents create something a little more special. This is a blues /psychedelic fusion that will rotate through my player for a good long while. Favorite track: Souls Of The Woodland.

Marcin Wielewski Superb bluesy stoner vibes, fantastic southern sound, full of energy rock'n'roll. Favorite track: The Deepest Sea.

Nerve Salad Came for the cover art, stayed for the music. I was waiting on a proper vinyl release so I can stare at the cover for a while & zone out to the fuzzy, stonery, bluesy riffs. Not sure where that oasis is, but I want to be there. All those nepenthes and nature-y stuff just sells it for me. Fine bluesy, energetic stoner rock.

Wxmaggot Read the comments below for all the reasons you should be supporting this band. I'll add that the vinyl edition is essential. Special shout out for the drum production and the tasteful playing on this album! Not as laid back and you assume it may be... this kicks ass... period. Favorite track: Chaman.

Bucky At last! Green Desert Water has welled to the surface with it's debut Small Stone appearance, quenching a classic case of cotton mouth with pristine southern harmonies, blues-blasted riffs, and razor honed fuzz. This is big folks. Muy Grande! Favorite track: Solar Plexus.

about

There’s no denying when it’s time to kick ass, and after getting their feet wet in a molten pool of heavy blues on their 2012 self-titled debut EP, Green Desert Water are ready for the next stage. The Oviedo, Spain, three-piece have been making a name for themselves as one of the best-kept-secrets of the Iberian heavy underground, and with Solar Plexus – their second LP – they’ve never sounded readier to let the cat out of the bag.

And by “cat out of the bag,” we mean unleashing classic power trio grooves – all primo, all soul, but heavier and thicker and more modern than the first record. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Kike Sanchís, bassist Juan Arias García and drummer/backing vocalist Javi González, Green Desert Water sink their teeth into hellacious boogie on songs like “Open Your Wings” and find the place where Black Sabbath and Mountain could’ve met on “Souls of the Woodland” – and when it comes to the title-track? Well, at least you know where they’re going to hit you.

With six songs split up over two glorious vinyl sides, Green Desert Water’s Solar Plexus indeed puts itself right in the center of attention – refusing to commit to one single vibe or another as it captures the best energy of classic heavy rock and brings it forward to a modern era where it’s so desperately needed.
