The Solid - Arrivals and Departures

The Solid features talented vocalist Brian Hagman (Black Lamb), SF-based guitarist Justin Caucutt, multi-instrumentalist/ bass player Greg Randolph from Frisco's late, great Greenhouse Effect, and Clementine, late of the Stoner Rock sirens Bottom.

The band really fit together well, playing a heavy yet melodic 'stoner' rock, which this five track EP showcases really well! 'Cry', 'Hoops' and 'Hot Rocks' really do say it all about this band. Although 'stoner rock' isn't exactly in vogue at the moment the songs stay with you, they're well crafted and excellently played, so credit where credit is due.

Are The Solid going to set the world on fire with their music? Probably not, but they'll entertain you for a while and surely ease the pain of what we call day-to-day life!

Rating 9/10
