This thread is the bizness.

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:

Charity drone/ambient/goth thing! For a cat! (Cool background story, actually -- poor kitty.)

Greg Ginn would approve.

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.

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.

I think I need to go record an album so I can make the ultimate droom album that all others will be judged by.

i didn't find the sample song scary at all, but maybe the rest is terrifying. i'll find out soon.

La Lechera, Monday, 23 January 2012 23:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

Sounds more like soothing ambient than scary to me. I, being Scott Walker, will not be associated with such half-witted muzak. They could have at least punched some pig meat, you know, to show they mean it.

future debts collector (Le Bateau Ivre), Monday, 23 January 2012 23:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

That kind of overpowering, claustrophobic drone always gets to me for some reason.

Gamera died for our sins (J3ff T.), Monday, 23 January 2012 23:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

Also the little fluttering wings. Do not want.

Gamera died for our sins (J3ff T.), Monday, 23 January 2012 23:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

It seems to lean a lot on effects, like the wind blowing over an icy polar landscape. But I do like it, yes.

Oh no, wrong attitude, want Jeff, want!

future debts collector (Le Bateau Ivre), Monday, 23 January 2012 23:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

Album gets better along the way, but it still sounds fairly sad-ambient-cliché to be honest

future debts collector (Le Bateau Ivre), Monday, 23 January 2012 23:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't know man, are you listening to ambient for innovation and excitement? Because I think you might have the wrong genre for that.

Gamera died for our sins (J3ff T.), Monday, 23 January 2012 23:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

Anyway, I've been to Indio, if I lived there I would probably be making music that sounded like that.

Gamera died for our sins (J3ff T.), Monday, 23 January 2012 23:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

would you find this more appealing if it were called music for butterflies? they're just moths with prettier clothes.

I'm an ambient man, have been so for 10+ years. The opposite of "innovation and excitement" - which is what I guess you are getting at in your definition of ambient - does not make for (good) ambient, per sé. At least not in my book. Ambient can be unsettling, unnerving as anything else. Ambient itself shines all around the spectrum of what most people call "ambient". From great snoozer-ambient to unsettling, scary ambient.

future debts collector (Le Bateau Ivre), Monday, 23 January 2012 23:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

forgot to mention this earlier but if you're hungry for a little droning/drumming/guitar playing this is a great and free (for today at least) option
