brant bjork - jalamanta . Reissue for the 20th Anniversary - remastered/remixed version with brand new cover art !!! HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS is really proud to unveil cover and details of the upcoming Brant Bjork reissue JALAMANTA !!!. RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 13th. PRESALE STARTS: MAY 23rd. It's been 20 glory years when desert rock icon, BRANT BJORK, released his first solo album Jalamanta. Jalamanta was a life changing record for me. It's the record that launched my journey as Brant Bjork. Listening to the tapes 20 years later was amazing. Tony Mason and myself were transported back to that moment in time. Jalamanta was a first for both Tony and myself. My first record as a solo artist and his first record as an engineer. We didnt think twice about re-mixing it.
Jalamanta (1999) by Brant Bjork. Labels: Man's Ruin Records. Genres: Stoner Rock, Psychedelic Rock Members: Brant Bjork.
Brant Bjork is no stranger to this concept; after drumming and writing for the aforementioned kings of the scene, Kyuss, Bjork (pronounced Byerk) went on to perform in The Desert Sessions, Fu Manchu, Mondo Generator, and make countless other appearances on various EP's and albums from an array of rock and punk bands. As a man of many talents; gifted drummer, guitarist, bassist, and songwriter (remember Kyuss' Green Machine" Yeah, that was hi., Bjork also had huge potential for a fruitful and enjoyable solo career. With all this talk of stoner rock band Kyuss, it would be easy to get the wrong impression about this album. Jalamanta does not take it's cues from thunderous distorted riffs or angry, strained vocals; it is dominated by winding bass grooves, semi-clean guitar licks and driving drum beats.

Brant Bjork's Jalamanta was a surprising departure for Man's Ruin in that the Bay Area label had never before put out anything so funky and R&B-influenced.
