Track Premiere: Black Pussy, "Butterfly"

When you name your band Black Pussy you'd better tread carefully, and to their credit the Portland band has made it crystal clear why they chose to call themselves that. Drawing inspiration from the original title of The Rolling Stones' classic "Brown Sugar" Black Pussy states on their Facebook page, "Black Pussy does not condone or endorse any sexism, racism, ageism, violence, or any other douchebaggery that has been spoiling the party sin the party started." If anything, these guys do know how to channel the spirit of the original song, having developed a wonderful knack for hard-driving, blues-based heavy rock 'n' roll. Drawing from the likes of Kyuss, Fu Manchu, and Monster Magnet, the band takes that '90s stoner rock sound and takes the WABAC Machine to 1968, adding healthy doses of psychedelia and badass rock 'n' roll to their sound. It's an irresistible combination, and it all comes into full bloom on the forthcoming album Magic Mustache, which is due on February 17.

In the meantime we're pleased to premiere the song "Butterfly", a spaced-out desert scorcher that should make Josh Homme and Dave Wyndorf nod in approval. Turn on, tune in, and drop way, way out with this lysergic little number.
