Review:

Medita is a Psychedelic Stoner Rock Band who have just released their S/T debut EP. And what an EP it is. A 20 minute EP packed full of superb Psychedelic Stoner Rock Riffs. Who cares that the vocals are sung in the band's own language. You can still rock out the excellent music that the band have perfectly created that ventures from Psychedelic Rock, Art Rock and back to Stoner Rock.

The EP's main two epic 10 minute tracks will have you coming back for more. Even though the EP has a raw feel to it you can't deny how talented this hard-rocking power trio actually is. Medita do add elements of FUZZ to their music at times and things do get very loud and melodic as well.

Medita say their music is best listen to with Stoned Ears. Whatever that means. OK we all know what it means You can listen to this superb EP in whatever mood or state your in. As it's a wonderful powerfully trippy ride that will take you to the cosmos in the comfort of you're own surroundings.

There are some excellent jam-based riffs to be found here especially on SOL. Imagine Karma To Burn jamming out with Earthless and that's how you would perfectly describe Medita's sound though Medita do add vocals here and there with frontman Rômulo on majestic form throughout.

All in all this is a superb EP to check out and a great introduction to another great band from the South American Stoner Rock scene. I can't wait to hear what these guys come up with next.

You can download this EP for free from BandCamp now. So headover and download it now. You won't be sorry.

Excellent Stuff.
