Album Review

There's always been a strong case to be made for the power trio, a three-man rock unit capable of delivering straightforward, no-frills rock that gets to the point without a lot of pomp and circumstance. And while this setup has been the gold standard for decades, a new challenger to the throne of simplicity has appeared: the duo. Doing it bigger, heavier, and gnarlier sans bass player, Indian Handcrafts join the ranks of bands like Tweak Bird and Big Business, doing more with less and making other bands seem flimsy in the process. On Civil Disobedience for Losers, the pair offers up a collection of titanic, riff-driven psychedelic sludge, taking listeners on a voyage through the heaviest and druggiest reaches of a cosmic metal swamp. Owing almost as much to Hawkwind as they do the Melvins, Indian Handcrafts inject plenty of stoner rock into their two-man sludge, occasionally bringing layers of delay-heavy guitar to give the album a sense of atmosphere that some of their contemporaries tend to forget about. Like the hobbyist who builds a replica of the White House out of matchsticks, the pair uses a minimal toolset to build something suitably impressive, creating an album that's as likely to expand your mind as it is blow out your eardrums. Add the production of Toshi Kasai to the mix, and Civil Disobedience for Losers is easily one of the best pieces of Melvins-worship to come out in a while.

Killer!!

Fans of Clutch, Sasquatch, Grand Magus, Sheavy, will love this. This is kickin' man! Great riff after great riff. This is what a lot of bands just don't get and that is the ability to write good tunes!! This is a must for my collection.

Biography

Formed: 2011 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '10s

Formed while they were playing together in another band, Indian Handcrafts came together after Brandyn James Aikins and Daniel Brandon Allen realized that, as the only guys in the band who got along, they'd be better off as a dynamic duo. Breaking off into their own band, the pair built a sound based on a solid foundation of riff-centric sludge rock tinged with a psychedelic atmosphere. With Allen on guitars, Aikins on drums, and both handling vocal duties, Indian Handcrafts follow in the footsteps...
