Featured Artist: Giant Brain

It doesn’t take long while listening to Giant Brain’s heavier-than-heavy brand of rock to realize that they’d probably be a super-fun bunch of dudes to party with. The Detroit band’s 30-weight sonic sensibilities may borrow a bit from here (the vastness of Explosions In The Sky), there (the undeniable groove of Kraftwerk), and everywhere (the strung-out attitude of fellow Michiganians the Stooges), but these guys never fail to infuse a strong stoner rock feel into the framework of every one of their songs. Giant Brain’s most recent album, Thorn Of Thrones, is out now on Small Stone Records, and is also available on iTunes.
