- It’s Hard to be Surprised on the Internet Now ()
I wrote this in a recent Metal Bandcamp Gift Club newsletter: I don’t know when I’ll be able to thumb through any used CD bins, or be surprised by an opening band on a Tuesday night. At the moment everything is laid out in front of our face. There’s no surprises. That’s why each birthday […]
- Fresh, brand new, just for us ()
Okay, two weeks in a row of this stuff? Another Bandcamp Roulette, and I’m so made this one today because I found this album from Brendan Byrnes – and it came out yesterday. I’m as shocked as anyone that I go from geeking out on that sort of music to making another Goodnight, Metal Friend […]
- Making Some Content During the Pandemic ()
Haven’t really made much “content” since shutting down Skull Toaster back in 2018. Got nearly 40 episodes into making a thing called “Later” in 2019 (archive of the audio available on SoundCloud), but that fizzled. Now, though, I feel some good momentum. Got a jolt to get working on Metal Bandcamp Gift Club again late […]
- Cosmic Lips by Momocurly ()
Cosmic Lips by Momocurly Found via Bandcamp’s scrolling “purchased music” feed on their front page – that album art caught my eye! The music is stunning – so clean and minimal, filled with good vibes and lush dreamscapes.
- Baby Baby by Dianas ()
Baby Baby by Dianas Found this via the Bandcamp front page – quirky and sharp and dreamy.
- Goodnight, Metal Friend ()
I love falling asleep to music, and for the past year or so I’ve been using the Headspace app for that very purpose. When listening to radio (like NTS), I never know what might come on at 3am. And with playlists, songs stop and start, so there’s never a consistent volume. And while I love […]
- Town Portal and Kowloon Walled City ()
Taped live at the Live at The Green Door Store, Brighton UK, in July 2019, and now just uploaded on March 27th of this year. So heavy, so good.
- Abelton Live is Now 30% Off ()
Abelton Live 10 is 30% off until May, and… The Live 10 trial period has been temporarily increased to 90 days, giving you more time to play with all the features of Ableton Live Suite. Active trials will automatically be extended. And anyone who has used the trial before can now use it again. I’ve been playing […]
- Marc Rebillet is a new Fave ()
One of the best things about keeping a blog is coming back to shit you wrote five years ago, or five days ago. Reading posts from a few weeks ago, at the start of the Corona virus outbreak, has already been eye opening, so I want to keep this going, and that of course needs […]
- Very Noise ()
What? How? Is this even real? Really enjoyed IGORRR’s 2017 album ‘Savage Sinusoid,’ but haven’t been keeping up, but really stoked I stumbled upon this clip. This song is from a new album, ‘Spirituality and Distortion,’ due out in March. It’s video likes this that push me forward. With all the ills of this world, […]
