SHOCK RADAR - Band To Check Out

Generator EP Cover Art

Shock Radar are an Experimental Stoner Rock Band From New York City, USA.

I will let this intriguing bio tell you about Shock Radar

"Shock Radar is the experimental art rock project of NY songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and painter Lee J Diamond. He has worked as a session musician for members of The Verve, Stabbing Westward, Small Black and The Slits. After touring and recording for acts like The Feud, Aerial Love Feed/Rockethouse, and Blood City, he is now giving life to his own material as a singer and composer.

The eccentric artistic styling of Shock Radar’s 'Post-Pop' songs are fresh and unique. Born and raised in NY where he worked at several record stores till attending Boston's Berklee College of Music on scholarship, and further studying art and journalism at New School University, Lee J Diamond has climbed his way to the top of the city's music scene, simply doing what he does best, mixing and playing all styles from around the world.

His live band plays frequently around Manhattan, or you can follow his musical endeavors via 27 Productions."

Shock Radar are super fucking talented. Their is no denying that. Their newest release "Generator EP" is an absolute blast of top-notch Stoner Rock riffs with a great Art-Rock vibe. This is experimental Stoner Rock at its most finest.

Some great vibes running through out this great release. Especially on tracks like "In The Land Of Vinyl" and "Generator". Seriously I couldn't get enough of this great band. This EP is a steal at $5 dollars.

The vocals are another highlight that have a slight Chris Cornell vibe to them. Its brilliantly produced and shows a great band to look out for.

These guys or one guy mainly Lee Diamond has been around a while. They have quite a few releases to check out on their BandCamp Page. Some free and some you have to pay. Do yourself a favour and get checking this brilliant band out now. 

Thank Fuck the world of Stoner Rock/Metal has artists like Shock Radar to shake things up a bit.

Highly Recommended.
