KITCHEN WITCH ‘Earth And Ether’ LP Review.


Words El Jefe.

Born and bred in South Australia back in ‘13, Kitchen Witch are a solid, dirty little stoner-blues quartet, fronted by vocalist Georgie Cosson.

Together they lay down fat and trippy riffrock grooves, and some ripping, fuzz-drenched guitars unleashed by Conor Kinsella. Simon Elliott and John Russo (bass and drums respectively) provide a rock solid backing for these seriously hefty stoner doom tunes.

The songs on Earth And Ether have a deeply eclectic Aussie tone to them as well.

‘Cave Of Mischief’ could provide an excellent soundtrack for when the band is cruising into the Jerramungup Roadhouse for a gig whilst the amazing ‘Sunrise’, with it’s lumbering, behemoth riffs could steam roll the earth with it’s creeping momentous peak.

‘The Frontal Lobe’ is a ballsy and heavy straight rock track, with a good chunky edge and the title tune, ‘Earth And Ether’ has a funky vibe and some slick rhythmic moves.

Smoky blues tones and acid-laced doom riffs get blended together with some strong melodies that serve to bind the galaxy together, and I can say without a doubt that this release from Kitchen Witch is pure quality from top to bottom. I’ll go out on a limb and state it’s gonna be one of the years best heavy releases too.
