Brant Bjork and the Low Desert Punk Band - "Luvin'" (video) (premiere)

Brant Bjork's latest, Tao of the Devil is a more focused, more song-oriented approach than its predecessor, Black Flower Power. It's a record equal to the man's reputation and "Luvin'" is proof positive.

It’s been a long time since Brant Bjork ascended to the throne of desert rock. His latest release, Tao of the Devil reaffirms his rightful place upon said throne. “Luvin’”, culled from that very record, gives us a whiff of those most fragrant, most majestic sounds we’ve come to associate with the Kyuss founder. The low-down guitars, vibrant, almost hallucinatory rhythms and, of course, one of the most soulful voices in the history of heavy rock, whirl together in this hip-hugging track. The accompanying video is filled with Bjork’s trademark humor, replete with a mystery van, a beautiful woman (or two), a hard-livin’ man (or two) and Bjork’s beloved desert landscape.

Although the music is heavily rooted in the sounds of the ‘70s, Bjork never loses touch with the present day, nor does he fall into traps of self-indulgence that derail a strong groove, a glorious hook and a lyric that impresses with both its humor and the dude-ish wisdom it provides. The rare rocker whose attitude is matched by his writing skills, Bjork deftly adds one more entry in an always-impressive body of work, one that will please longtime fans and newcomers alike.
