Got inspired to do an entire episode of soundtracks. Mostly horror and sci-fi stuff, there's a pretty good mix of new and old. The bit with Upstream Color & Annihilation is fuckin crazy.

I love nu metal. There was a short period of my life where I was a little ashamed by it, but that's long gone. There is some really good stuff in the genre that I think most people ignored because of garbage like Limp Bizkit's "Rollin." There's more to nu metal than that and if you can't share my love of the genre as a whole, maybe you can at least find a song or two for the next time you feel the need to mo...

This is the first episode in a long time with no black metal. The only metal is some massive doom. But there's also some wind harp drone, weirdo Japanese disco, the Inanga queen, the new solo acoustic master Yasmin Williams, and some snapshots of the civil rights movement.

Watch out. That third set with Johanna Hedva, The Besnard Lakes, and Divide And Dissolve is fuckin monstrous.

Keep an eye on Gates Of Doom, that record is year end list material. I end the episode with an interview with someone who was incarcerated for a long time and just in case I didn't say it enough during the show, fuck the prison system and everything about it. Forgive everyone.

I didn't intend to make a comeback on inauguration day but here we are. First normal episode in 5 months. And because this isn't being broadcast on a radio station, I could play all 47 minutes of the Ali Akbar Khan piece without any problems. There's also some Harry Potter black metal, Fidel Castro alongside Phurpa, a Midwife & Amulets collaboration, and plenty more.

Field recordings of an autopsy, a rotting corpse, and an electric chair execution, as well as cult leader monologs, trance babblings, lots of deep dark ambient, and a truly memorable ending.

Not much metal in this one. I highly recommend checking out Cinder Well's album in full. Ends with 30+ minutes of absolute mayhem while Paul Giamatti reads A Scanner Darkly.

This is a pretty heavy & dark episode with tons of collaging (there's 4 songs going at once for part of "Blood Rite") but ends on a light note with some simultaneous Jobin/Atkinson action and a couple 80s New Age dreams.

Got some excellent new metal, some excellent new weird shit, new Shirley Collins (!!!), Korean religious rituals, a poem about Harriet Tubman, strange 70s spoken word stuff, an excerpt from Annie Jacobsen's book Surprise, Kill, Vanish (which sounds especially good paired with both Christopher Elmore & Sunrot), and plenty more.

It's been a long time since I've been as obsessed with a record as I am with Lankum's The Livelong Day from last year. I just found out about it thanks to this Shirley Collins interview (they're her new favorite band too). I've listened to nothing but that record all day every day for the past week. There's lots of other great stuff here too but there's a reason I bookended the episode with two tracks fr...

Definitely grab that Overgrow To Overthrow benefit compilation from Bindrune. All proceeds go to Black Lives Matter and Life After Hate. It has 31 tracks including Thou, Inexorum, Vukari, Obsequiae, Falls Of Rauros, Cloud Rat, Aerial Ruin, Woe, Krieg, Dawn Ray'd, Krallice, and so many more incredible artists.

The 3 metal songs are from 3 of the best metal records this year. The AWE track is from the upcoming final AWE record. Thankfully AW will still be active on his own. Backxwash is some phenomenal new furious horrorcore that I didn't know I needed. And I am way psyched that there's not one but TWO new Revolutionary Army records.

Goddamn this world is fucked. For countless reasons, I've been absent from this site and my A Thick Mist radio show. I'm rusty. Hardly experimenting here. Nothing too weird. The main difference though is there's no talk breaks.

This episode is pretty cool with new Jeremy Bible (!!!!), the debut from Apologist, some classic Rev. Gary Davis, Aurora Borealis recordings, Indian chants, Tolowa dances, and some new killer doom out of Boston by Sea.
