Portland stoner/beard-rock fellows Red Fang have blessed us with an early stream of their new album Only Ghosts. If you were looking for your next Battlefield 1 or Overwatch soundtrack, this is the LP for you; nothing but crunchy riffs and gruff, yell-along choruses with zero pretentiousness and all the beer.

And speaking of games, Red Fang have offered a unique way to literally play the album with an accompanying browser game. It's basically Tetris, but about stacking amps. Naturally, it's called Fangtris and it truly captures the stressful problem-solving required to pack gear when you're in a touring band. That old van is somehow never big enough. 

Stream Only Ghosts below and play Fangtris here.

Phil gets 'Nam-style flashbacks from this game. He's on Twitter.
