Spider Kitten has long been known as a band that's heavy as balls but not afraid to take chances. Both characteristics are abundantly evident on 'Toker'. It's six songs are split into three originals and three covers. The only cover I recognize is Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man", which is one of my brother's favorite songs and it's performed well here, with much the same feel as the original but somehow heavier. "Longhaired Redneck" and "The River Man" are acoustic jams. They surround the short "Coquettish" which only increases the song's heaviness. Anyway, 'Toker' just came out today and is a nice change of pace for devotees of unceasing heaviness. You can go ahead and PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT to download from bandcamp.
