Jalamanta is the debut solo album by American stoner rock musician Brant Bjork, released in 1999. The album was recorded at Rancho de la Luna in Joshua Tree, California, and was released on Man's Ruin Records.
Jalamanta is a more mellow and laid-back album than Bjork's previous work with Kyuss and Fu Manchu. The album features a mix of stoner rock, desert rock, and blues rock, with a strong emphasis on groove and melody. The album's title track is a seven-minute instrumental that showcases Bjork's drumming skills. Other highlights include the bluesy "Too Many Chiefs...Not Enough Indians", the driving "Low Desert Punk", and the psychedelic "Her Brown Blood".
Jalamanta was a critical and commercial success, and it helped to establish Bjork as a solo artist. The album was praised for its laid-back vibe, its strong songwriting, and Bjork's impressive drumming. Jalamanta is considered to be one of the best stoner rock albums of all time.
