Also available cd and digital.

“The Hazytones" is an album that could as easily find its way onto the playlist of an avid 70's hard rock collector as it could that of the most discerning stoner/psych/doom fan. From the Sabbath-esque opener "Light Of The Day" ,with it's familiar vocal melody and catchy guitar riff, through to the Swedish retro-like grooves of final track "Moonstruck" there is a feeling of the past and the present coming together to create something totally new yet oddly recognizable. “ - Stonerking
Next up on the presses will be the Ripple reissue of the long out of print self-titled album by Freedom Hawk. Truly one of the best stoner bands in the business, and this issue is a long time in coming. Or as Ninehertz.co.uk said, "it's fucking good - pure, unashamed, stoner rock with some great tunes that make you pine for times past."
Goes on sale Nov 17 in limited colored vinyl, world-wide vinyl, CD and digital
Ripple has an imprint for music that's more in the psychedelic/garage pop mold and our new release is this scorcher from Sacred Shrines. For fans of Dead Meadow and Black Angles, Shindig! Magazine has chosen this debut as their featured song of the week. As they say, "delivers juicy psychedelic and garage-inspired tunes with fuzzy guitars and driving rhythms wrapped in gorgeous reverb and a rare authenticity".
