Ahkmed - Adventures Involving Nudity

Label: self released
Year: 2002

Hazy, warm fuzz that comforts like a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup. Sometimes it's just what you want. To call it "stoner" is doing this record a disservice. Yes, sure, you can get a whiff of that sticky icky vibe, but there's more here. There's some big guitar mid-90s alternative rock in here. There's some spaced out long views across the horizon as well to balance out the bombast. But even the bombast is tempered in a way that I like. It's plenty meaty, but never caustic...make sense?
They are Australian too, so that's fun.
Elements of Milligram, Fu Manchu, Kyuss, and Smile if you like any of that. You should.
