Their facebook page claims their music is for the children, but frontman Jason Simon clearly had proponents of wacky tobacky and Sci-Fi nerds in mind when he began sharing Dead Meadow's unique brand of mystic rock. References to H.P. Lovecraft and psychedelic dream scenarios fill the cosmic egg that contains 2013's Warble Womb, an album that echoes classic rock, country influences, and the droning modal character of Eastern music. Catch Dead Meadow on their 2014 Puff Tuff tour, as it's going to be their last for a long time and should be as much fun as popping open a can of Pringles.
