During our Baltimore stop on the recent Ludicra tour I was fortunate enough to meet Joe of the band Oak. He was kind enough to kick me a vinyl copy of their debut LP. Of course the cover was enticing enough with it's strange psychedelic kraut rocky cover, but I had no fucking idea how utterly devastating the tuneage inside was. Crusty, stripped-down, sludgy doom, earthen, spacious and absolutely great. They have promised to tour soon, go see them.
