Taking their name from an obscure Sam Peckinpah film reference, this quintet hails from Marion, a small town nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in western North Carolina, where they have concocted a ragged, burly brand of modern psychedelia over the course of two self-released CD-Rs and an album.

Their forthcoming new album combines classic 70's psych rock, Caustic Resin, Neurosis like dirge, gooey sludge metal, blues and early country music, Hawkwind style spacerock explorations, and the expansive fire rock of late 70's Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Quite a heady mix, but "Eat The Low Dogs" ties these influences and stylings together with a righteously loose energy as the band works out extended riff feasts littered with spacey theremin strains and some of the coolest molten synthesizer woosh this side of Comets On Fire, resulting in 9 jams of awesome life affirming heaviness.

At just under an hour long, the band keeps it dynamic and ever changing as they move from the moving, distortion-caked country/space rock sludge. Trippy, rocking, crushing, this is a stellar new album from U.S. Christmas.
