Ann Arbor Michigan’s The Striped Bananas have released their fourth album entitled Stone of Madness. The album features classic psychedelic rock vibes with overtly simple song structure and somewhat painful vocals. Our interest weakened with each rotation. Our Rotation Racap will provide you with more in-depth look into Stone of Madness.

Standout Track
"Ghost World". We appreciate the distorted vocals, but still way out of intentional tune. Decent fretwork throughout.

Alcohol Pairing
Go back in time and grab a Stroh's, a Michigan watered down landmark

Lasting Impression
What we think is intentional off key vocals is grating and ultimately unlistenable after one full rotation.
