Going through my records of 2002 gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling. The five picks below make it obvious that stoner rock and doom metal were dominating the first half of the 00's. That scene was on fire back then but now it seems to have died down. *shrug*
Brant Bjork & The Operators - Brant Bjork & The Operators
I had kind of forgotten about this record even though it's definitely one of my favorites. One of those feel good summer albums, if I had a convertible this album would never leave the car. Brant Bjork & The Operators fuses laid back 70's rock à la Steve Miller with modern desert rock sounds. The result is very pleasing indeed. For hit material, check out "My Ghettoblaster" and "Cheap Wine".
