Shooting Guns / Hawkeyes – Brothers of the Nod

This cultish collaboration finds Saskatoon stoner-rockers Shooting Guns splitting a 12-inch subsonic feeding frenzy with Waterloo’s Hawkeyes. Brothers of the Nod may be only a half-dozen tracks long, but it displays a supernatural sense of balance. Mirroring each other’s ability to distill and extend epic rock riffs, each of these bands rose to the occasion by throwing down three colossal tracks. The result is a lo-fi, rumbling roadhouse score that signals the onset of Shooting Guns’ post-Brotherhood of the Ram (2013), post-WolfCop soundtrack (2014) era. Slowly stretching to the horizon, like a freshly paved strip of two-lane blacktop, Shooting Guns’ hypnotic psych-blues storylines shift and swerve with unerring grace and gravitas through the “Halls of Grief” and the unavoidable “Heavy Dissent.” Proving to be the 38-minute hangover cure you’ve been searching for, the mollifying repetition and molten flow of Shooting Guns’ “Mega Volcano” is a juicy redeye cocktail for the soul. Maintaining the infrasound super-structure of the Nod, brother band Hawkeyes’ trio of hot reprises and Martian sunrises glow with hidden reserves of prowess and power. The smoke curls of “Hotter Than Ten Hundred Suns” and “Orange Monkey” set the hazy scene for the album’s heavy-drone ringer “The Charred Skull of McLean Stevenson.” Which, if you know your television trivia, is the perfect yardstick for gauging the head-lolling potential of this lugubrious album.
