Tia Carrera

No relation to the actress Tia Carrere (though this band name seems to be a play on her name), Tia Carrera is an instrumental trio hailing from Austin, Texas. Like a lot of so-called stoner metal bands, there are a lot of 70's (and even earlier) influences channelled here, from Hendrix to Sabbath and more, with songs that are long and often with an improvisational feel to them. There's plenty of abstract heaviness here, solos and jams galore, similar to what one would expect from a live setting (another band attempting a somewhat similar style might be Stinking Lizaveta).
