Montreal’s John Jacob Magistery comes through with a title track equal parts heavy and sexy for his recently released HARMONEY EP. Nocturnal verses light the fuse for the fiery stoner, psych-rock riffs in the latter half, as singer Johnny Griffin coos “I give you purpose/I am love/I am free/buy into harmoney” with undeniable swagger. Just like the title, a fine balance of subdued ambience and controlled chaos work in harmony to make for a provocative, bold new sound for Griffin and co.

Also from the EP, “You Snooze You Lose” offers up a similarly dark psych-rock flavour, complete with overdriven bass, ethereal dulcimer and a woozy piano hammering away during the chorus.
