Ga'an is sick

billstevejim, Monday, 9 January 2012 19:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

This isn't on bandcamp but it is free and also AWESOME

The Runnies are a rock'n roll organ trio hailing from Chicago. Fronted by vocal extraordinaire Mary McKane. Their sound is gnarly, the beats are totally slammin, and the leads are freaky-deaky.

Ridiculously prolific Tangerine Dream-style electronic guy! My favorites of the many, many albums he has available are Game over and Tiresias Show, but if you find any other good ones, let us know!

http://sleestak.bandcamp.com/album/altrusian-moon-a-lo-fi-collection-of-psychedelia-and-space-rock

You can get it free, but if enough people pay something, it will fund their recording of a new album this year.

Kevin Bewersdorf - Slow Dudes
http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Kevin_Bewersdorf/Slow_Dudes/

A friend of mine's RISD classmate (please don't let this repel anyone). Glitchy, cheesy, MIDI pop goodness. Favorites: "Hi Hi Hello" "The Last Seinfeld" and "1989 Toyota Camry"

That thing I linked to is a 'spoof' of some sort apparently. I thought it was pretty good to be honest.

This thread is the bizness.

Chief Queef (Spottie_Ottie_Dope), Wednesday, 11 January 2012 05:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

The band just told me they have their page up now. They are something special. My #6 album of 2011!

Ever crave a band that's so downtuned that you can actually track the motion of the strings and feel the vibrations in your internal organs? Chile's At Devil Dirt has a doozy for you. It's hard to believe it's just two guys, as their debut self-titled album has a mammoth sludgy fuzz sound worthy of Electric Wizard, Goatsnake, Kyuss and Floor/Torche, with some pretty inventive psychedelic vocals with harmonies. On "Rocknrolla" they even bring to mind T. Rex!

At Devil Dirt (Corvus Discos)

This band from Argentina (instrumental stoner/psych) is a late discovery:

I upload stuff to bandcamp. Older stuff - guitar based sadcore or jangle pop. Newer stuff - more new wave. Most of it is free if you want it.

http://lingereffect.bandcamp.com/

Some great Kraut-ish jams from Indirect:

http://indirect.bandcamp.com/album/2010-direct-from-w-k-a-f-compilation

(They aren't free/name your price so I won't link them, but Fang Wizard has a fun album from TeenBeat available for download on bandcamp, and there are a couple of great post-punk-type singles by Friends for dirt cheap from the Lucky Number label on the site as well.)

This being the hub for all things Steven R. Smith (formerly of Mirza, Thuja, Hala Straana and solo artist). His latest OLD SKETE is a must-listen for rustic drone types.

And thanks for the kind words WRT The Rowell Incident upthread. There will probably be some more solo synth/drone stuff going up in the nearish future.

I'm listening to the Airs record that I linked to up above as "shoegaze with black metal elements." There is no black metal in this that I can ascertain. So if that scared you off, have no fear – this is pretty straight up staring at footwear.

Which album would you recommend?

J3ff T., Thursday, 10 July 2014 22:47 (2 weeks ago) Permalink


http://thedustbunnies.bandcamp.com/album/night-terrors-hd

This is my stuff, first time doing a solo album of original material in a long time. I don't know how to describe it other than psychedelic. Some of it is punk/no wavey, some of it is more lofi pop.

©Oz Quiz© (Adam Bruneau), Friday, 11 July 2014 00:07 (1 week ago) Permalink

I would recommend Bible Universe. A little more lo-fi aesthetic paired with some of the best songwriting: http://everythingnowmusic.bandcamp.com/album/bible-universe
