San Diego's Chune have mixed the power of their producer Mark Trombino's band
Drive Like Jehu and their own stoner vibe into a cocktail of sleepy plane crashes. Their songs are like falling asleep at the wheel: you are soothed by a quiet drone into a deep relaxation, and then an explosion of sound makes your heart jump right out of your throat. Tales of teenage pregnancy and getting schmoozed by record industry leeches are included in the singer's eclectic collection of subject matter. Chune rocks in slow motion in a similar fashion to their labelmates Boy's Life.
