New Tunes: Harsh Toke - Light Up and Live

It's no secret around these parts that I'm a big supporter of both psychedelic rock in almost all of its glorious forms as well as skateboarding in nearly all of its glorious forms( I still don't get longboarding), so when word came out that Baker Skateboards pro Justin "Figgy" Figueroa's band Harsh Toke had signed up with TeePee Records to release their latest long player you know I hit up the interwebs hard to find a piece to share with you. The nine minute sonic assault below is what I came up with and it's worth every minute, starting with a bass line that just don't quit and building into a reverb drenched swirl of mind melting riffs and bone rattling drum rolls. Sounds like Figgy jams as hard as he skates and that's really fucking good news for those who like to bang their heads to something besides concrete.The full album on TeePee Records comes out November 19th and hopefully a legit tour to follow. And if there's not, you can always track down a SkateRock show. If you dare.....
