Brooklyn's The Stoned Ambassadors wear their love of the electric guitar on their sleeves. Their sound has been compared to the likes of Spacemen 3, Jesus & Mary Chain, The Stone Roses, and even Oasis. But rather than simply mine the aesthetics of their guitar-loving influences, the Stoned Ambassadors focus on fundamentals; songwriting and musicianship.
This vinyl debut showcases the wide breadth of the band's sound. The straight-forward rhythm of "Cry Your Little Eyes Out" floats by on the crest of a triumphant guitar hook, while "Through the Maze" is a slow, drone-laden hymn of desperation with a gorgeously cascading melody set to a funeral march on the floor tom.
