Check Out: Dead Meadow

My first exposure to Dead Meadow was on Emerica's ground-breaking skate video "Stay Gold". They have at least three songs in the whole video. Perhaps the best moment that utilizes Dead Meadow on the soundtrack is in the intro. The introduction is a gnarly time-lapsed video introducing all the members of the team throwing down huge tricks. It works well due to the band's honed psych-rock feel. The song is "Sleepy Silver Door", a seven minute straight up jam with fuzzy guitars and slick vocals proclaiming "I'm washed upon the shore of reality". From that moment on, I was a Dead Meadow freak. I immediately snagged their fifth studio album "Feathers" and listened it on repeat. If your a fan of classic rock, psyche-rock, or anything that rocks, check em out. You won't regret it.
