Well, it's happened. I knew that Baroness were a game-changer. Get ready for this- Borracho were a fine, if somewhat predictable stoner rock band. They now have heard Yellow and Green, and the first three minutes of this EP sounds like it was cribbed directly from Baroness. Don't get me wrong- I like it, but it just proves exactly what I thought. You know how Songs for the Deaf changed everything, and suddenly dozens of bands copped that basic template about a year later? Well, prepare for that with Yellow and Green. Again, Borracho do their own thing, and it owes more to Kyuss than anything else, but proper respect to them for recognizing the genius of Yellow and Green.
