Opium Eyes of Nico- Dronecaine (2015)

Opium Eyes of Nico is a Russian drone group with Dronecaine being their freshman album. Drone is a hard sound to pull off, but these guys manage it beautifully with artful and spacey play between sitar and guitar. Defiantly a good album, it’s a little too long, too clean and the vocals are a little too loud, but overall this is great session drone, 89%.

Orlando

Stone of the Swamp is a blog about the music and people of Orlando. A week ago some Islamic fuck attacked our city targeting a large group of unarmed Floridians. Orlando is a cool town and while we mourn our losses, the City Beautiful is not being cowed by terrorism. I am proud to report to the world that Friday afternoon got started in good style and fashion with Central Floridians getting back to the normal weekend ritual, which is mainly getting drunk and high out in this exquisite Florida weather. The Hideaway and Wally’s still opened at 7 am for Floridians too eager and exuberant to wait until noon to show their resilience to terror.
Orlando hasn’t changed, and won’t. This is a great town and always will be, the only difference being that we have reverted back to our culture of the 80’s when almost everyone had a deer rifle in the trunk or toolbox, sitting next to the fishing rod, cooler and warm beers.


This Myrrors album is the soundtrack for staring at the space between the wall and one’s self. Psychedelic/ krautrock from Arizona. Perfect for the afternoon session, 91%.

Lake Ivanhoe in the city beautiful, Orlando, Florida. This is still our city.
