Low End Theory

Nov 8, 2023 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

ZBC Rock

With DJ Ouroboros

Welcome to Low End Theory. If I were to describe the aesthetics of Low End Theory as a musical territory or space, its borders would be provided by doom/stoner/psych metal on one side, contemporary prog and prog metal on another, experimental/electronic/folk on a third, and enclosed finally by the long arc of classic and contemporary post-punk that bends towards dub. The mission of this radio show is to conjure a farrago of heavy sonic fictions of sound, words, and music appropriate and fitting to the heaviness of the times. But fear not, this Low End Theory is not dour or depressing; on the contrary, we seek out the joyful and ecstatic in the acoustic depths of the low end’s vibrating, pulsing heart. And who among us does not need some joy anchored in the deep sonority of the low end, especially now?

Thank you, Shantra!
JeffB 8:29:11 AM
ears perked up when you said "new music from Mourn". Thought it was the quartet from Barcelona that hasn't put anything new out since 2020. Then you said "from Boston" so it's a different Morne.. https://mournct.bandcamp.com/
Shantra 8:30:54 AM
The OLL piece is purrfect for some pearl hunting I am assisting in later this morning 🙏🏼
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:33:14 AM

BTW, PmC, thanks for the aural experience of drifting off to Camberwell Now and waking up in the middle of a Tibetan exorcism, lol.
