There's stoner rock, so why not stoner pop? Instead of slow, sludgy bottom-end (though there is some of that), Miami act Torche douse their lumbering, throbbing gate with melody. It's still hefty and menacing, but hooks peek through often, producing a sturdy foot-tap if not quite a head-nod. Their moody, stratospheric roar is also surprisingly concise, with a majority of the songs from last year’s Meanderthallasting less than two-and-a-half minutes.
