All Them Witches 

When: Thu., Feb. 6, 8:30 p.m. 2014
This subtly psychedelic Nashville stoner-rock four-piece takes a great leap forward on its second album, Lightning at the Door, self-released via Bandcamp in November. Its debut, 2012’s Our Mother Electricity, is a satisfyingly well-crafted piece of heavy space sludge, drawing on a template that’s equal parts Black Sabbath, Mountain, and Deep Purple, but on Lightning at the Door the band seems to feel more free to indulge in personal idiosyncrasies—and the music definitely benefits from that. It’s more intricate, more intimate, and possibly more strongly informed by a folkloric southern-blues sensibility. If these guys went down to meet the devil at the crossroads, they wouldn’t make the standard deal—they’d sell their spleens for some kind bud, an unpublished Manly Wade Wellman story, and the secret of Jon Lord’s organ sound. —Monica Kendrick
