The Gris Gris - The Gris Gris (2004)

If you've never experienced the brilliance that is The Gris Gris, then by god you're in for a treat. One of the quintessential moments in psychedelic rock, The Gris Gris' self titled debut is a stunning feat beyond comparison. The albums opener, Raygun, is a haunting, rolling howl which ascends to a flat out stomping blast of rock and roll; easily one of the highlights for me, though the album stays consistent the whole way through. All I can think to say in all seriousness is its a super fucking rad record, and if you haven't dug it then it's time to get on up. Other fav moments include Mary #38, Me Queda Um Bejou, and the organ solo in Everytime. Enjoy it yocals!
