Fresh on the heels of the band’s latest spectacular psych rock mas-terpiece, Stickman Records is happy to present a reissue of the long out-of-print second album by Weedpecker.Weedpecker formed in War-saw, Poland in the early 2000s as a stoner rock band with serious melodic tenden-cies. Much in the same vein as now-labelmates Elder, the band has gradually traded riffs for atmosphere and progres-sive song structures, stepping further away from others’ footsteps with each release. On II, their aptly-titled second full-length, the band broad-ened their sound on all levels, and as a result dropped jaws across the stoner rock com-munity in 2015. Weedpecker makes huge riffs that are majestic and beautiful, suspending them in oceans of reverb and psy-chedelic atmosphere. II takes less influence from the lighter side of psych rock than the record that followed it, opting instead for a grunge-tinged approach to their stoner epics. Brother guitarists Piotr and Bartek Dobry play off each other with an ease perhaps ex-pected from family - offering twin guitar leads and chunky stoner grooves that melt into hazy, ethereal atmosphere in the next moment. On top of it all, sublime vocal harmonies complete the picture of a su-perb rock album that is both heavy and beautiful.
