Generous Maria- Electricism LP. For my money , Sweden’s Generous Maria are the finest band to emerge from the lumbering “Stoner rock” scene in ages. And that’s not just because they dress better than the vast majority of the overweight, corduroys-wearing dope rockers, although it certainly helps. No, GM’s shake appeal is that their riffs are bigger, their songs are slinkier and sleazier, and that they write about what they know (lying to chicks, booze, dope) instead of what they think they know, like most of their stoner metal brethren (spaceship gobbledygook). Oh, and then there’s Goran Florstram’s groovy vox bubbling over the top like some narcotic sugar frosting. It’s some seriously heavy stuff, brothers. “Electricism” is Generous Maria’s second album and it contains all of their signature sounds, plus a dollop of heavy glam with fresh, crisp production that hurls them right to the top of the Rock Mountain. Import from Italy.
