Quest for Fire - Lights From Paradise (V0)

What would happen if Dead Meadow and Spacemen 3 hooked up and had a thousand stoned space babies? Quest for Fire seem determined to answer this question with their 2010 sophomore release, Lights From Paradise. With crunching (jaw-breaking, soul-shattering, car-crushing) guitar tones that could have very nearly been taken from Baroness or stoner rock contemporaries Black Mountain and a strings section that is just as enchanting as the vocals are mesmerizing, Lights From Paradise is stoner rock the way it's supposed to sound. Brief expeditions into folk, complete with acoustics and tribal drumming, make Quest for Fire an interesting, if not mind-warping, listen.

Strange, vacation.
