Dopesmoker (Southern Lord, 1994/1998/2003/2012)

To kick off the weekend, here’s an epic track courtesy of Tommy, former Rock DJ/Producer:

Dopesmoker is an hour-long album with a single track by seminal stoner drone metal band Sleep. It’s also a concept album that tells the story of the Weedians’ pilgrimage to the promised land of Jerusalem (the album title on some releases). There are four different album versions, all with this chorus: “Drop out of life with bong in hand / follow the smoke to the riff-filled land.”
