Black Snake – Death Deals Blues [EP]


Rock doesn’t have to be complicated. Yes, there’s a place for experimentation, but the lysergic fountain of rock has always adhered to a simple solution: groove and rhythm. Black Snake, a ‘70s-worshipping four-piece from Portland, use this basic formula to devastating effect, while incorporating fuzz-laden grooves and nonsensical lyrics – Shawn Baravetto channels his stoner-punk persona throughout.
