Witch - Paralyzed
This one sort of flew under the radar on me, but since I finally got a hold of copy its been in constant rotation in my car's CD player. On the band's sophomore release they ditch the Sabbath inspired stoner rock riffs for a way more aggressive and raw up tempo sound. J. Mascis once again provides some stellar drumming and proves that everything that he touches is solid fucking gold. There really isn't a track that will immediately grab you like "Seer" from the band's '06 debut, but from start to finish Paralyzed is a much a better record and a big step forward for the band. Give this record some time and it'll grow on you.
