about

What do you mean, "Who’s Brant Bjork?” He’s only the original drummer in Kyuss, the godfathers of "stoner rock.” He also wrote some of their best songs. Best? Hell yeah, and heaviest — Guitar Magazine voted his riff for "Green Machine” one of the heaviest of all-time. After slumming for a few years battering the skins with Fu Manchu, he’s self-released a series of solo records, the best being the new wave-y rock of Brant Bjork & The Operators and the organic, stoner groove of Jalamanta. And, groove is what Bjork is all about; he locks onto a super-simple, catchy riff and rocks the head bobbing shit out of it. On Somera Sól, he’s rejoined the Bros, now with 25 percent more Kyuss! Alfredo Hernandez, the man who replaced him on traps when he left said legends, and who provided the robot beats on the first Queens of the Stone Age record, is back behind the kit. So, this must be a monster of low-end desert rock, right? Nope. Somera Sól has some of the wah-wah trippiness but is more about sweet, old-fashioned rockin’ than crushin’. Not as immediately accessible or catchy as his first two solo records, Somera Sól still has moments of transcendent, infectious, psychedelic groove. - Exclaim!

This is Brant's 2007 rock release with the lineup of Brant on guitar and vocals, Alfredo Hernandez on drums, Cortez on guitar and Dylan Roche on bass. Also features guest appearances from Mario Lalli (Fatso Jetson), Vince Meghroubi and Olive Lalli.

about

Brant Bjork Los Angeles, California

Brant Bjork didn't invent it, but he epitomizes Desert Rock and his work has become so synonymous with it. Whether one is considering his pioneering work in Kyuss and Fu Manchu, the stylistic exploration undertaken with Ché or his 17-year solo career, which has undoubtedly become his greatest contribution at this point, in songwriting, style and persona, Bjork is a singular icon. ... more
