Samothrace, Fields of Mars, In This World 

When: Thu., Nov. 21, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8-9
The stoner stereotype holds that those who smoke don't get much done—that is, frequent inhalation fosters a lack of ambition but an abundance of beards, calorie excess and interest in bad movies. Seattle quartet Samothrace posed inside a weed dispensary for the promotional photos for its most recent album, the aptly named Reverence to Stone, and the band's non-female members indeed sport either dreadlocks or thick facial tufts. But both of their records are audacious statements, where the burly distortion of the stoner set follows shapes more suited to prog rock. The band builds into crescendos, with guitars lifting over belligerent upsurges, and slinks into comedowns, feedback wafting from the ashes like smoke rings. Meters shift, and solos spiral into new sections of these umpteen-minute songs. Too deliberate and decisive to be mere jams, the songs of Samothrace follow the grand stoner tradition of Sleep and Electric Wizard by checking in to music meant for checking out. —Grayson Haver Currin
