Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra - Morbyn Outtakes
Following the EP - album - EP - album mantra, it was time for new material on a short length release. Get your ambient groove rock collection one level higher with the new EP CD by The Orchestra.
1. In Front Of You All
2. A Dirty Thing
3. I Do My Best
Work on the new Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra album CD started in the summer of 2004 already. Then came two European tours to support the debut. Because of the unique song writing process of this band, it became clear that finishing a follow-up would take some more time. So we chose to present an outtake on EP, showing what the Orchestra was up to right now. Hand picked tracks that will not appear on the album CD, we would like to add.

Wallrus - The Wind Blows Witches From The Sky
It´s been one year since the release of the debut album of the Dutch slusher blues rock band Wallrus. That album has only been available in and around The Netherlands. So, when the original supply sold out, and plans were made for a second album, Freebird Records jumped in to make this debut available for heavy rock fanatics all over the planet.
01. No Mistake
02. Blue Tales
03. The Wind Blows Witches From The Sky
03. Stray White Iron Jim
04. Slow River
05. Plastic Corrective
06. Moanin' At Midnight
07. Little Johnnie Doe
08. Mean Shit
09. In My Pocket
Basicly, we can tell you a lot about this debut album. But one year ago, Rob Wrong did a near perfect job on Stonerrock.com, so why not use his words?
"Wow, Wallrus really kicks out the jams hard! Right from the beginning you know you have a monster record on your hand. Even though these guys are drenched in classic rock, it's still got newer twists to it and a bit of doom here and there. For the most part the whole CD song after song has the kind of intensity as bands like back in the day, Hendrix, Zeppelin or Cream came across as... hard rock, blues based and heavy. Musically it reminds me of something that the Masters of Reality or the Queens might do also though. Fuzzed out bass and heavy stomps over and over with tasteful guitar and melody lines that are super catchy, but not cheesy..."
The founders of the hot slusher blues movement!

Mugwumps - Self Titled
01. Dig The Sensation
03. Gas Tank

05. Soul Thriller
06. Movin' On
07. Offered A Place In Heaven
08. Voodoo Doll
09. Run 'til I Die
10. Must Be The Night
It´s been two years since the release of the debut album of the Swedish "rock 'n' more rock" band Mugwumps. The iron laws of music industry then dictates that a follow-up should be released. Who would have thought that Mugwumps, Freebird Records and Group Sound follow that rule... But here it is: an untitled album containing ten brand new tracks straight from Uppsala. For this release this foursome made use of trumpet, harmonica and saxophone to spice up their rock sound. So you know what to expect: that just a bit different rock sound you're used to, but then just a bit different...

Orquesta Del Desierto - Dos
In respect to the music of our time, Orquesta Del Desierto is reminiscent of something that flittered over the waves of AM radio when cars still had the look of muscle and romance. A combination of Latin beats, mariachi horns, rock grooves, and a heavy blues influence, Orquesta Del Desierto takes all that is the Mojave desert and paints its portrait in sound.
This second album of this eclectic band is now available through The Stone Circle, as a cooperation between Alone Records from Spain and Freebird Records from The Netherlands. The US release is scheduled for february 10th 2004 on Meteorcity Records.
TRACK LIST 01. Life Without Color

Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra - The Losers Are Back In Town
A. The Losers Are Back In Town
B. I Should Have Known
This 7" single (45 RPM) was actually meant as a tour EP, in order to have something to leave behind during their may 2003 tour of East Coast USA. Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra is on the road with their evil tourbus during most of the summer in Europe as well. But if Freebird Records stumbles across something fresh, promising and groovy as this, we feel that more people should get acquainted with The Orchestra...

Mugwumps - Do It Good
01. Sinkin´ Stone
02. Easy To Get Sick
03. Come On And Give Me Love
04. Danger Buzz
05. You Can Go
06. Do It Good
07. She´s A Shriek
08. Baby You Control Me
09. Roll With The Punches
It´s been many years since now since Mugwumps started harassing the local rock-scene by cranking out their loud rock music whenever they got a chance and without asking permission. Needless to say, not everyone was happy with their four long-hairs trying to turn their amps up to eleven. But thank them for being so stubborn, because at the end of 2002 we can finally present their debut album on CD, after 3 small chunks of vinyls, and 2 tracks on compilations. Showing a much more mature side of this four-piece as well, with the use of extra instrumentation and more lengthy songs...
Mission statement: to win over souls to the gods of rock-n-roll!

Elephantum - Sedimentation
Various problems have caused a serious delay on this one: line-up changes, band name changes (with repercussions on the artwork of course) and technical problems with the master... you name it. But it's here now!
01. Anthem To The Fall And Awakening Of The Tiny Yellow Flower
02. Black Butterfly
03. Galleon Of The Sand
04. Light Up Your Summer
05. Low Phi
"The songs are well written, the melodies are quite good and the four Dutchmen are skilled musicians." - Walter, Rockezine.nl, The Netherlands
"This is a Stoner-Highlight for sure and a really good debut." - Ralf Burkart, Daredevil Magazine, Germany
"The style of the band is pretty unique... I think I never heard before a union between prog, heavypsychedelia and groovy riffs." - Alex, StonedGods, Italy
"It's full of thick simple guitar lines of fuzzed out goodness, strong melodic vocals and nice simple tight changes full of good one off hooks... It's definitely hard rock/radio stuff and a bit cheeky at times..." - Rob Wrong, Stonerrock.com, USA
"Elephantum sounds quite like Beaver when it comes to moving back and forth between crunchy guitar hooks, some odd time signatures and dynamic tension." - Walter Hoeijmakers, Roadburn.com, The Netherlands

Nuc - The Beta Feel
On "Transfuser", the self released debut CD from 2000, Jeroen's melancholic singing and noisy guitar, Peter's soaking bass, Joost's pumping drums and a touch of space-effects make a typical mixture that is Nuc. The combination Sonic Youth, Motorpsycho, Kyuss and the Melvins make a sound best described as a excited marriage between new wave and noise on one hand and stoner and spacerock on the other. Now their second album is available, this time released with the Freebird logo on it!
04. Leaving Moscow
05. 1m2 Happiness
06. Fungus Trip
07. No Brando
The recordings for the second album were done at Moskou Studios, while Marcel vd Vondervoort finished the job once again in his own Torture Garden Studios. The same deadly combination that created the second Astrosoniq album. The result, "The Beta Feel" is not you average heavy groove album: psychedelica, new wave, space rock, stoner and tons of emotion are present on the 7 tracks. "Album de l'année" at stonerock.free.fr!
SludgePsychoStonerWave to the core and a lot more!

Astrosoniq - Soundgrenade
Their debut album left a deep hole right in the center of the heavy groove planet. Their music is a definitely original blend of hard rock, grooves and whatever they come across on their journeys. And now, the second load is available...
01. Secret Passage
04. Aphrodite's Child
05. Evil Rules In Showbizzland
06. Hit & Run
07. Sod Off!!!
08. So Be It
This second album was recorded at the same place, and produced by the same wizard. But this time, their 9 intrically woven tracks sound much more mature. A whole wide variety of heavy groove rock, with some dark, mid-tempo interludes ("Evil Rules...") through a kick-ass rock anthem ("Hit & Run") all the way to a spaced out funky groove track ("So Be It"). Astrosoniq went for the ultimate edges, and Freebird Records went with them.
Warning: this soundgrenade will explode in your face...

Yajaira - Lento Y Real
A self made band from an unknown country: Chile. Four people only known by their first names. Bringing slow and warm grooves, with Spanish lyrics. That puts them in the same cabinet as Natas or Viaje a 800, but musically they fit just as well with Datura or the inevitable Kyuss. Average song length way over 5 mins. This release has been made by Freebird especially for heavy groove fanatics in Europe and North America, where their domestic (self) releases have never been available before. Contains a bonus track as well.
02. A Donde Vas Tan Rapido
04. La Serpiente Antigua
05. Sin Dio$ Ni Razon
06. Vidrio Molido
07. El Ritual
08. Sangra El Cielo
09. Alcohol (Bonus Track)
Freebird's Spanish language release...

Nice*Cat / The Volcanic / The Stonegod - Three Way EP
Freebird presents 3 new names on one album. In over 60 minutes Nice*Cat from Toronto, Canada; The Volcanic from Ånge, Sweden; and The Stonegod from Chivasso, Italy present themselves. Three totally different interpretations of heavy groove rock from around the planet. This EP goes three ways, be sure to keep the right side up...
03. Ring Out
Already a bit known from their track on "Graven Images" these gals and dude open this CD with four powerful groove tracks. Obligational headbanging warning included.
05. Lost Soul City
06. Empty Hole
07. Dancing With The Devil In High Heels
This band from the absolute center of Sweden has it all: powerful grooves, melodic song structures, a wall of sound and even slow stuff that actually sounds like a song instead of a doomy 15 minute jam!
09. Center Of Gravity
12. Too Late
Ever wondered how gothic would sound if they had a decent guitar sound? The missing link with heavy groove has been discovered in the alpine regions of northern Italy. Completely appropriate, they're called The Stonegod...
