B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 21 JULY 2012

Arcata, CA-based psych-rock band, White Manna have recently released their self-titled debut on Holy Mountain Records. And it smokes! The sound is ferocious and beautiful, captured excellently by engineer Pieter Dohlman. The influences stretch from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Echo & The Bunnymen and The Stooges (Fun House era). Apparently, the record is already selling like fresh chips in the UK and Europe. Local boys done (& doin') good - real good.
