A Thick Mist
New Panopticon, old Fred McDowell, Native American chants, new Post Scriptvm, old La Monte Young, talking without a larynx, strange locked grooves, strange vocalizations, old fado, old Oliveros/Dempster drone, and all sorts of other cool shit.
New Eluvium, new Turk Dietrich & Duane Pitre collab (First Tone), new Mamiffer, new Tim Macuga (HANL) project (Consumer), new age piano, Holocaust despair, Russian chorus, and Gullah sermons.
I played a bunch of my favorite metal records. The full Top 27 list is here, so consider this episode a 2-hour highlight reel.
I played a bunch of my favorite drone records. The full Top 27 list is here, so consider this episode a 2-hour highlight reel.
Lots of long songs and maybe the first time ever there's no American folk/blues to be found. Even so, there's Japanese flutes, génocidaire trial recordings, Indian ragas, nondescript LSD instructions, Finnish doom, Italian dark ambient,
Some especially nice pairings in this episode, including RST's drone & Haitian ritual music, Curran's Canti Illuminati alongside some Indian ragas, and Truman Capote reading over Primitive Man's dark ambient doom.
Piano-driven funeral doom, an instrumental Julee Cruise song, my man Nimrod, Joik songs, UFO reports, and Poe stories.
New Mizmor! Hum reissue! New Impavida! Claire M. Singer reissue! A tuba/drum duo I'd never heard of before!
I can't believe I haven't seen anyone mention the new Il'Ithil record, it's Blake Green's (Wolvserpent) solo project which I'd never heard of before. It's incredible. Also, I am so so in love with both Sarah Gunning's and Nimrod Workman's voices.
