Moses Gun, The: The Strobe Session

With a self-described sound of "heavy melodic noise rock" and "urban indie rock," The Moses Gun a Chicago trio that believes in authenticity takes influences from Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix and Utopia (really!). This five-song, 17-minute EP introduces a raw and messy sound that could only be spawned by dudes who, according to their MySpace page, lived "in veritable poverty in the city we grew up in, jamming on second-hand pawn-shop instruments, barely nourished on a diet of Ramen noodles, Camel cigarettes, Busch beer, and (insert random illicit substance here), all the while writing rambling odes to relationships lost, baby mamas, dope, and disillusionment (in no particular order)."

So as long as you push "play" without any really grand expectations, The Strobe Session can be an invigorating listen that sounds better with each subsequent, mind-fuzzed spin. "Perfect Weather" storms into Stone Temple Pilots territory, Vell Mullens' Ozzy tendencies snap loud and clear in "Broken Neck" and drummer John "Johnny Mars" Marszalek proves he's a madman on "Million to One." But it is Rich Harris' awesome (and downright inspiring) guitar work on "Ashley" that will make you grin like a fool with a can of Busch beer in your hand.
