Stretchin' out the tunes!
The Fall Mansion
This Nation's Saving Grace Beggars Banquet 1985
Earthless Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons, Pt. 2 N
Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons Nuclear Blast 2022
Soaring instrumental release from this trock trio. Entire album - from artwork to music - inspired by the Japanese folklore/art of Hyakki Yagyō, which tells of supernatural creatures that cause pandemonium. This cut is the second of three pieces that make up this LP. Reminds you of King Crimson?
Sleep The Druid
Sleep's Holy Mountain Earache Records 1992
Influential stoner rock band from California. This is the band's second studio LP and was performed in its entirety at 2009's All Tomorrow's Parties festival.
Voivod Quest for Nothing N
Synchro Anarchy Century Media 2022
Latest release (and 15th overall) from the Canadian prog metal band. Heavy sci-fi elements throughout, as marks much of Voivod's work. I prefer them to Rush.
Melvins Civilized Worm
(A) Senile Animal Ipecac Recordings 2006
Another 15th studio LP, this from the still-active Melvins. Following the departure of bassist Kevin Rutmanis, Dale Crover and King Buzzo connected with the bombastic Big Business on this release, featuring the power of two drummers! The Melvins will be playing at Club Congress on Saturday, June 18th!
Electric Wizard Weird Tales / Electric Frost / Golgotha / Altar of Melektaus
Dopethrone Rise Above Limited 2006
On this, the English stoner/doom/sludge metal band's third studio LP, Electric Wizard leaned heavily into its horror and drug influences (both real and imaginary) to create what ended up becoming a masterpiece in the genre, despite their best efforts at creating a foul album. GG Allin this ain't!
Blood Incantation EA N
Timewave Zero Century Media 2022
You wouldn't know it from this release (though the band's name may give it away), but Blood Incantation is a death metal band from Denver, CO, heard here dialing it back quite a way. In doing so, they've created an ambient, almost 80s cinematic album that stands as several musical movements. "EA" is actually four movements, heard here it is entirety.
Laurie Anderson O Superman (For Massenet)
Big Science Warner Bros. 1982
Big hit for experimental songwriter for this English songwriter from this debut LP, heavily pushed by influential BBC programmer John Peel. Fans of the tech sci-fi show Black Mirror will recognize this cut from the "true" ending to the choose-your-own-adventure film Bandersnatch. My 5 year-old demands I play this all the time.
Radio-Activity (Remastered) Parlophone UK 2009
Originally release in 1975, this marks the only single released from Kraftwerk's fifth studio LP. A concept album (as many Kraftwerk releases were) about radiowaves and related concepts. Takes me back to early "Hex Enduction Hours" epsidoes/shows.
Sonic Youth Basement Contender N
In/Out/In Three Lobed Recordings 2022
