I had hit up the band on MySpace and they seemed to imply that this was going to get a physical CD release too; as much as it goes against the grain of this thread, I really really really really hope that comes to pass...

Whoa, that Peter Gordon song IS amazing! Thanks so much for that, definitely never heard it before.

Also, really excited for that ST37 link. Thread is gold.

Sonoi: most recent band of Adam Busch, formerly of Manishevitz (early Jagjaguwar band, truly great):

Really cool, atmospheric rock. Occasionally a little "out" but always stately and well-crafted. Both Verlaine and Robert Wyatt influences evident (to me at least).

I like how the Dirty Feathers has a "do not play on your shitty laptop speakers" warning.

Live album from the descriptively-named Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble!
Exquisite noise caused by our own crut!
Krautrock jams from the turn of the century!

awesome psych rock, sounds like something rockadelic would have put out

Never thought to look up Abunai! on Bandcamp. Great band, sadly the band member's post-Abunai! material has been pretty much ignored. Joe had a really good record out on Camera Obscura & Brendan has had a couple of great outfits & recorded a solo album or 2, but don't think any of it has seen the light of day yet.

another vote for dark sun here too, while we're at it -- it was perfect to listen to while i puttered around in the early evening and tried to forget about work.

Recommended when you download one of the Dark Suns albums! Basically sounds like you'd expect!

Waxahachie Swap (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Wednesday, 15 February 2012 05:15 (five years ago) Permalink

But seriously. "Label" comp; feat. Sharpless, Bellows and Small Wonder (and some other stuff inc. Maxo, who is a 8-bit dude and weirdly prolific)



Small Wonder:

I've actually kinda stopped writing pop songs :/ I recorded all those vocal tracks when I was 20.

crut, your voice was a truly delightful surprise. much deeper than i expected!

I have to admit, I thought a few of the 'pop' songs were inspired by John Maus

Wiht - The Harrowing of the North

Stoner/psych, two long instrumental songs. I'm torn between feeling like a fuckwit for missing this year (I saw the good reviews in blogs, just totally spaced on checking it out) and being delighted to have found something new and great.

Fastnbulbous, Friday, 17 February 2012 05:16 (five years ago) Permalink

this PAST year

Brotherhood Of Sleep - Dark As Light

Stoner/psych. This one was on my list, but may not have been on Bandcamp when I checked previously.

On the same tip as Brotherhood of Sleep:

^played with these guys last night. Their set was a wildly hallucinatory mix of drone-metal and sampled film dialogue (mostly from obv sources: Network, og Willy Wonka, etc) but now am listening to Transcendental Hamburger and there's a bit of that (along with a modicum of slap bass) but it is much more straightforward stripped down stoner metal. No guitars; only bass and drums. Digging it quite a bit. Hella nice guys, too.

Guadalupe Plata (2011)

Spanish blues/surf. Check out their video for "Serpiente Negra" that comes with the download. Most gorgeous dancer I've ever seen, like Elena Anaya from Sex And Lucia!

Taking their name from Samuel R. Delany's apocalyptic sci-fi classic, Chicago-based Dhalgren's sound is rich and textured, with all four members contributing to a complex base of synth drone and processed vocals, under which a driving rhythm section occasionally appears to propel the music from dense ambience to ecstatic motorik synth rock.

couldn't say it better myself, super recommended if that description appeals to you

america nova sounds good too from what's available for listening, but idk where to get it since apparently they don't want me to pay to download it.

Laura Lucy Lynn (La Lechera), Sunday, 19 February 2012 18:51 (five years ago) Permalink

The Father Costume, 2010
dhalgren-related feelies/felt inspired pop (i'm guessing here, but it's kinda obvious i think?) EP
cute cassette-era art too
listen to "i need to be told" if you want a representative sample

A City Safe From Sea, 2010

I was roommates with one of the dudes in this band while they were writing/recording it, so I always felt weird about talking about it on ILM, but what great chaotic Unwound/Meneguar-influenced stuff, with trumpets and pitch-shifted riffs and big choruses. Still love it, still wish they'd ever play out.

That Gypsyhawk is all kinds of awesome. I bought the CD back when it came out. Love the Thin Lizzy influence, can't wait for the new one!

Fastnbulbous, Friday, 16 March 2012 21:42 (five years ago) Permalink

Ha, looks like Gypsyhawk had to raise money in order to take their new label Metal Blade up on their last-minute invite to SXSW. Sounds like the album is due around June.

Fastnbulbous, Friday, 16 March 2012 21:50 (five years ago) Permalink

Just out now!
Ice Dragon's 3rd album. Creepy stoner/doom from Boston.
