Various 'Northwest Blow Out' (EP stream)
Published Jan 21, 2015Wanna know the kind of tunes pro skater Riley Hawk, progeny of the iconic Tony Hawk, has coursing through his headphones when he's out on the streets doing killer kickflips and sick grinds? Well, he's just collected a couple favourites for a new Scion-sponsored EP he dubs the Northwest Blow Out.
Included on the four-song freebie release are a post-Sabbath stoner cut from Berlin trio Kadavar and LOOM's "Midnight Sol," an equally Ozzy-and-Iommi-inspired piece soaked in murky blues textures. The Black Angels likewise offer up some azure-tinted cheer with "Waterloo Waltz," while Hot Lunch cap things with fretboard-and-joint-blazing fury.
Riley clearly has a thing for bong-rattling bass work and other assorted psychedelic sounds. You'll find the free EP of the crews he currently co-signs down below.
