20 Watt Tombstone - Year Of The Jackalope

Are you ready for an ass shaking good time? I certainly am. In fact I think we all could do with some fun in a year marked by mass trauma. Such is the magic of 20 Watt Tombstones thrilling new covers EP, Year Of The Jackalope. (Seriously what is it with stoner rock and jackalopes?) Featuring reprises of ZZ Top and Chris Stapleton, this two track EP is a stopgap before the band releases their hotly anticipated brand new album. It's a delight to sink your teeth into the rip roaring fun of this offering, Year Of The Jackalope is guaranteed to get your heart thumping!

Kicking things off with a ZZ Top cover feels incredibly natural for 20 Watt Tombstone. The band very nicely lean into the trademark swagger of the Texas rockers. The addition of slide guitar is a nice change of pace for 20 Watt Tombstone, but it's the line in the studio magic that helps to keep the band so special and exciting. It's hard not to be charmed by their execution. For those not deeply familiar with the band, a Chris Stapleton cover might seem unorthodox for the Wisconsin rockers. However, for those of us in the know it makes a lot of sense. The way they bring the heavy to a classic like 'Midnight Train To Memphis' is a ton of fun. 

It's hard not to be charmed by the inherent magic of this band and all that they bring to the table. 20 Watt Tombstone are firing on all cylinders hear and its a nice reminder that this band is a one of a kind force in the world of heavy music. I'm thrilled for them to swing through my town, but in the interim, I'm just going to remain charmed and delighted in the heavy rock magic that this covers EP conjures up. Year Of The Jackalope may be a mere pit stop for the band, but it's also an amazing appetizer of what is hopefully to come.

  1. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever..
