Weedeater - God Luck and Good Speed

God Luck and Good Speed
At A Loss

Weedeater's 2007 full-length doesn't deviate from the band's previous game plan. This is a good thing. They're still banging out grizzled Southern sludge, so what's different?

This time around, the sludgy parts are written cohesively into the songs. They don't feel slow for the sake of being slow. Weedeater is also looking beyond the basic rock band anatomy by adding a banjo in a rock context. Don't worry, the speedy, punk-rock parts are here too.

Anyone who's into Eyehategod, BuzzOv-en, Sourvein, Facedowninshit, and the like, should check out God Luck and Good Speed. This record kills posers.
