This North Carolina quartet's initials stand for Amplification of Self Gratification. We really don't know what that means. But we do know that ASG plays fuzzy and kaleidoscope-hued stoner rock on its latest album, Win Us Over, which combines mind-blowing guitar solos, steamrolling riffs, and hazy snatches of melody. And because they're southern guys, ASG can't help but bring some good-'ol-boy stomp to the party. But mostly the band is down with expanding perceptions. "Dream Song" appropriately shifts moods a few times before eventually working itself into a frenzy of twin guitar attacks and shotgun rhythms. Grab your bong — it's gonna be a brutally fun time when ASG comes to town this week.
