At the risk of being called a wuss (or worse yet, an indie-rocker), I bring you the only release from Eureka's own psychedelic rock supergroup, The Great Salvation. Their jams are super-mellow and super-well crafted, the perfect soundtrack for a mid-summer trip to the Trinity River accompanied by a couple twelvers of tasty suds, a handle of Jack, and tons of sweet, sweet bongloads. Everybody in this band is an old-school Bro, and their band geneology incorporates just about any good Humboldt Art-Rock band in the last decade and a half. I realize that this disc is a huge departure from the kind of stuff I usually post, but I fucking LOVE it, and I hope a couple of you douchebags can open your mind and check out some of the best goddamn rock and roll recorded in the 00's.
Unfortunately, The Great Salvation didn't last long, breaking up shortly after the release of this thing. But you can still tune into their unique trip, via heart-wrenching tunes like "Lonely Days", "Sit On The Banks", "Hello Marie", and "Electricity". Go ahead, get in touch with your inner indie-rocker. I won't tell.
