#musicmonday : Om – State of Non-Return

OK, you can listen to this, but you mustn’t think of them as manky old hippies. They’re a spiritual bunch, our Om. You also mustn’t think of this scene from Red Dwarf

Now that that’s out of your system, and you’ve remembered that “om” is actually a sacred Hindu incantation, we can begin. 

Om are a stoner rock band f0rmed from the rhythm section of Sleep, and though drums and bass form the core of the laconic groove, you’ll find other instruments popping in to say hi every now and then. The song titles on Advaitic Songs are littered with biblical references, but it appears that the band take a pan-religious, meditative approach to spirituality. The music mixes in elements of East and West, but mostly it’s that monstrous, thunderous groove that holds the appeal.
