    REVIEWS:

    "THE BERNAL CODEX is the latest from DIRE WOLVES, another major player in the free rock scene, physically manifested since 2009, somehow escaping my scouring of the four corners of the weirdo tape world til recently - as a four piece they give it all they got considering comparisons to contemporaries BURNT HILLS and DESMADRADOS SOLDADOS DE VENTURA where both outfits feature 8+ members - there's more mysticism in the WOLVES, splicing the dna of MV & EE, PHAROAH SANDERS and SONIC YOUTH, honing in on the heavy kraut psych of early 70s AMON DUUL II as advertised, in a way that neatly bridges the gap between BURNT HILLS' profound freeform primitivism and DSDV's enlightened groove-locked chaos - there's nothin about DIRE WOLVES that ain't right up my alley, they've got a tape titled THE CREATOR HAS A FASTER VAN on SLOOW for goodness sake" (Psi Lab)

    "This jam is the fucking jam. It rocks so goddamn hard and builds so intensely, awash in fiery guitar soloing and complex interplay, that you really can’t deny the label’s statement that, “Jams and the Giant Peace is the kind of psychedelic monster that immediately transports us back to being seventeen again, cruising around town invincible and high while blowing the car’s factory-installed speakers to shreds.” Yeah, I know a lot of music reviews in this scene/genre are guilty of serious teasing, but this is completely right on. They can hit you up with complex line after line of head-spinning, tightly wound catharsis jamming and then destroy everything in a free noise ruckus and make it all sound just as good. Some of the better playing that I’ve heard from the LRD school of japrock psych and guitar based krautrock neophytes." (Impose Magazine)

    “Jams and the Giant Peace” is a take-no-prisoners romp through a land of punished amps and cracked cymbals. It is a messy, never-ending heap of a tape, that clocks well into overtime as it showcases fearless jamming and ruthless chord bashing. And best of all, the louder you play it, the better it gets. (KZSU, Stanford)

    "…finest pack of social predators go for the kill, riding the deadhead wave of the all consuming need to jam. When the hunt is over, you will be out of breath and on the floor while the pack is staring you down with gnarly smiles, they will lick their lips and you'd better start running again. Freedom rock at its finest. (Manuel, Silver Ghosts)

    "Third eye opening group Dire Wolves seem to be another psych collective standard bearers, but break up this cassette with lots of intervals…like a truly psychedelic radio station. I bet these dwellers are a fun bunch live." (Foxy Digitalis)

    "Dudes are on an endless trip of burned-out guitar riffs, stoned basslines, wasted vocals howling at the moon…fuck, I wanna jam!" (Bart, Sloow Tapes)

    "Heavy Winged-esque riffology with a heavy kosmische vibe." (Boa Melody Bar)
