2012 release, the third studio album from the Stoner Metal band led by Steve Brookes. Harmonicraft was self-produced by Torche and mixed by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou.
''(Harmonicraft) follows the 2010 mini album Songs for Singles, though it feels like the descendent of their stronger 2008 breakthrough Meanderthal. As ''Kicking'' suggests, despite the new lineup and imprint, vocalist/guitarist Steve Brooks' knack for sludgy pop anthems remains unchanged.'' --Pitchfork.com
''If the first single ''Kicking'' is any indication, it's going to be an absolute hellbeast of an LP. ''Kicking'' is the sort of hugely catchy bulldozer that nobody does quite like this band. --Stereogum.com
If new song ''Kicking'' is any indication, Harmonicraft is the logical successor to Meanderthal, suggesting that perhaps it was a sonic difference that prompted the band to separate Songs for Singles from their full lengths with a different album format designation. This song is why you love Torche, and it's all here: fuzzed out stoner bass, spacey, glimmery guitars, soaring major key choruses and Steve Brooks' unmistakable voice.'' --Metal Sucks.com
