Blaak Heat - Shifting Mirrors Album Review
Franco-American rockers Blaak Heat take a trip into the desert.
There’s more to these LA-dwelling American-Parisians than desert or stoner rock.
Heavily influenced by Eastern motifs, their third album, Shifting Mirrors, transplants you from California’s dusty garden to a mirage of camels, souks and travelling caravans. It’s a collection of weed-worshipping odes which tremble with bass-heavy licks and enchant you with a sense of consciousness-challenging mystique. For a band that could get away with never-ending jams, the tracks here are, by prog standards, relatively compact.
