|March 2014 Digs|
So the year's already a quarter gone and there's a lot of musix I've been renjoying but here's 15 albums I've been listening to the past month, no rspecific order. I will probably make a ranked first quarter list soon to outline rmy favs as well.
|1||Animals as Leaders|
The Joy of Motion
You'd have to be living under a rock to not be familiar with this by now. Very
entertaining but lacking the emotional connectivity department. I can see this
growing on me though so I've continued to spin it.
Really pleasant, ambient-ish free improvisation. There's tribal drumz and an array of
instruments and it's all very engrossing.
Quartet / Octet
Big onkyo ensemble, I still wish the sound quality was a little bit better but
regardless this is good reading/writing/drawing music.
Condemned to The System
Grindcore with a strong dm vibe so I can't not dig, pretty straightforward, enjoyable
Sludge Methul. Initially this bored me to tears but it ended up growing on me. Nice,
filled out sound engineering helps quite a bit.
Elemental Raga II: Fire Starter
This might be my favourite potsycore of the year I'm not sure there's quite a lot of
good ones. As you've probably guessed it's an eclectic mish-mash of anything and
everything, fav track would probably be
Super chilled, slightly glitchy downtempo, really really good to zone out to after 10+
|8||Howls of Ebb|
Vigils of the 3rd Eye
Shout out to my favourite wizard (Wizard) for rec'ing this to me. Atonal, quirky
blackened dm in the vein of Flourishing and Baring Teeth etc. highly recommended.
Just some solid tech death with trace amounts of dissonance for that slightly manic
touch. There's a REALLY shitty transcode floating around on the net so make sure
you get a good rip or this before you listen to it in full.
Probably the best Captaincore release yet, still has a few issues with the
production but Cap says he's figured out how to fix them so I'm looking forward to
Caverns of Katabasis
Top 5 metal OTY so far, death/doom in the vein of disembowelment and Inverloch,
really really good stuff. Highly recommended.
The Radial Covenant
Instrumental progressive death. A lot of Obscura (the band, I mean) comparisons
because this guy is Obscura's drummer afterall, but it's pretty easily distinguishable.
Solid death/doom but nothing revolutionary, I encourage you to check it anyways.
Old school DM you'd be forgiven for thinking it came straight out of 1992, got a bit
of a Dismember vibe going on. A lot of really infectious, high-octane riffage, no
reason you shouldn't check it out if you like a bit of OSDM.
Some house music that I actually enjoy, nothing more really needs to be said.
