The Warlocks are a foundational band for early to mid-2000's psych bands. Albums like Phoenix & Surgery set the blueprint for modern acid drench, desert scorched rock that came after it. Which makes the fact they are about to release a new album all the more impressive. Where many of their contemporaries have either disbanded or become parodies of their former selves, Warlocks continue to turn out quality tunes. "Lonesome Bulldog" is a slow burning tune - it never really kicks off into full garage rock, but keeps itself at a constant simmer waiting for the spark to set it off. The Warlocks latest, Songs From The Pale Eclipse, comes out September 2 on Cleopatra Records.
