Tracks Of The Day: Spindrift/Graveyard
We continue our selection of free downloads from Tee Pee Records, one of the coolest labels on the stoner, psychedelic and underground heavy scene. Today, we give you Spindrift and Graveyard. For all the latest Tracks Of The Day, go here.
Spindrift combine the dust-trail epic soundscapes of the golden era of spaghetti westerns with modern pysch rock. In other words, think Ennio Morricone meets The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
The LA –based band were founded in 1992 by singer/producer/guitarist/actor Kirkpatrick Thomas. Aside from him, the current line-up of the band features Dave Koenig (rhythm guitar/harmonica), Julie Patterson (organ/lap steel), Henry Evans (bass/baritone guitar), Marcos Diableros (harmonium/autoharp/melodica), plus Dan Allaire and Janson ‘Plucky’ Anchondo (both on drums).
Their 2005 album The Legend Of God’s Gun, which actually inspired a film of the same title, has just been re-issued by Tee Pee. Download the title song for free at teepeerecords.com/sampler

Graveyard have a sound that melds psychedelic music with folk and blues – which will appeal to fans of Witchcraft and Pentagram. From Gothenburg, they were formed in 2006, and feature the foursome of Joakim Nilsson and Jonatan Ramm (guitar/vocals), Rikard Edlund (bass) and Axel Sjoberg (drums).
Both Nilsson and Eklund were previously in a band called Norrsken with guitarist Magnus Pelander, who went on to form Witchcraft. Their self-titled, debut album, originally released in 2007, is now available through Tee Pee.
