Love - Forever Changes

One of the best albums of the 60s and an album everyone should listen to. It's a beautiful compendium of stellar psychadelic pop with the addition of elements such as brass and strings. If you like the Beatles (which you should) listen the fuck out of this.

Shackleton - Three EPs

This is like a subtle beast just waiting to envelope you in darkness and bass.

You should allow it to.

Three Eps

Union of Uranus - To This Bearer of Truth

Can you spot a trend yet?

trendy ass motherfucking blog right here

His Hero Is Gone - Monuments To Thieves

If you don't listen to this band

A Sunny Day In Glasgow - Ashes Grammar

So it's finally starting to feel like spring, down here in Melbourne.

The sun is out, people look a little less gloomy, and blissful indie tunes are taking over.

This is the audible recording of Spring.

The Hope and the Failure - The Lights Are On But This Dance Never Ends

Female fronted screamo that is rather fucking fantastic, it even makes the eternally grim and frosbitten BALLSTOTHEWALL want to mope all day and night.

So get moping

Vestiges - The Descent of Man

Vestiges are a cute little two-piece playing around with what I really want to call creamo metal but I'm not going to because that would be even stupider than I normally am. They mix up crust, post-metal, screamo and a tiny little bit of black metal to make something that sounds a bit like you'd expect it to - i.e. pretty damn good.

too bad the album cover is boring

The Spectacle - I, Fail

If you ignore the stupid name and never ever ever look at the album cover ever you'll probably like this more. They play creamo sort of like Alpinist except a lot more post-rocky and a little more melodic and whatnot, actually reminds me sort of like The Fall of Efrafa at times too except more screamo and some bits remind me more of old school hardcore punk type shit but not really perhaps sorta. You know what I mean. Oh and they're also A BUNCH OF ANARCHISTS FUCK THE GOVERNMENT.

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme

Just realised:

and it's only Nujabes.

This should be an obvious enough album that doesn't need posting, but man if you don't have it...

The greatest album of all time

Fugazi - Discography

This is the best post that will ever appear on this blog, everybody else might as well just give up right now because really why would you listen to anything else? Hey man, we've got pizza and Fugazi you better come here and chill the fuck out because life is good, man. Eat pizza. Listen to Fugazi. Love life. Words to live by and I don't give a fuck if I'm rambling because god damn it man, Fugazi.

Worship - Last CD Before Doomsday

Worship put the fun in funeral doom.

this post dedicated to funeral dom

Asunder/Graves At Sea Split

Oops looks like I just accidently sludged all over your face, ugh you might wanna wipe that stuff out of your eyes I hear it can cause blindness. And deafness. Fuck it, there's no hope for you now might as well just curl up in a ball and die already.

Turn it up to 11

Avey Tare - Down There

So Avey Tare, one of the dudes from the amazing Animal Collective, has released a solo album of sorts. While it's pretty damn good, it's nowhere near the heights of say Feels or Person Pitch but it's cool.

Axegrinder - The Rise of the Serpent Men

You guys are a bunch of posers, can't up the punx for the life of you. I haven't washed in fucking weeks, I'm developing layers and layers of crust, it is the most filthy, gnarly shit you have ever seen. Just got a bunch of patches too fuck yeah Discharge and Amebix all over my fucking shredded jean jacket gonna put spikes all over this shit, up the punxxxx. But for real Axegrinder were the raddest old school crust band around, forget Amebix this is where it's at.

but don't really forget amebix

Since Slightly posted Panopticon...

Have his 2010 split with Skagos.

It's probably his weakest effort yet but that doesn't mean it's still a great listen.
Don't bother with Skagos' side though. I mean you can but...


Public Enemy - Yo! Bum Rush The Show

Hardcore rap classic. If you consider yourself a fan of hip hop and don't have this album then you're not a fan of hip hop.

check it out

Panopticon - Self-Titled


Anarcho-Pagan Black Metal 4 Lyfe

I Hate Myself - 10 Songs


I hate you too

Pg.99/Majority Rule - Document #12

Pg.99 motherfuckers. No, not just Pg.99 but Majority fucking Rule too. God fucking damn it, what more do you want? City of Caterpillar too? Well tough luck. On this split Pg.99 showcase their softer, more sensitive but ultimately also really rather creepy side while Majority Rule bullshit about feminism or something. Get it.

Document #12

The Field - From Here We Go To Sublime

Really chill, minimal techno. Fuzzy loops buzzing around analog drum sounds, cut up basslines and vocals clipped to a point where they become a blurr in the background. The pitchfork write-up actually describes it perfectly.

Begrime Exemious - Impending Funeral of Man

Some good dm from this year that's filthy as all fuck.

A touch on the blackened side, with riffs everywhere. This is well worth checking out.

Radare - Infinite Regress

Radare is a post metal band in the vein of Rosetta and Isis, but they (thankfully) bring other sounds to the table, including a much more streamlined tone, which is used to play lines that are more intricate and less chunky than those of the aforementioned bands. If you like post-metally hardcorey stuff then this is for you. It's been awhile since post metal has interested me.

Lightning Bolt - Wonderful Rainbow

Dude. There's a zany fucking rainbow coming out of that bunch of noise.

Bass and drums?

Fuck yeah.

Faraquet - The View From This Tower

Faraquet were a Washington D.C based band with a very interesting sound; kind of blending a bit of post-hardcore and math-rock with an indie vibe. Of course this means it's very strong instrumentally, and sometimes it kind of reminds me of Off Minor. Also this album was released on Dischord Records if that means anything to you.

Warning - Watching From A Distance

One of the best doom albums ever. Period.

Raxa - Mezovedic

Crazy ass awesome project by some dudes from Russia. Combining ambient music with hints of folk and doom, Mezovedic is a truly unique listen.

Women - Public Strain

If you like the sound of gentle, dry guitars culminating in beautiful yellow clouds of reverberated dissonance and cryptic, psych pop, then I recommend this album.

Dead Congregation/Hatespawn - Split

Greek death metal band Dead Congregation blew me away with their 2008 release Graves of the Archangels, bringing an old school flavour to their brand of modern death metal. Their 2005 EP Purifying Consecrated Ground is equally brilliant. In this split, Dead Congregation contributes two short songs, which are balanced out by one considerably longer track from relatively unknown band Hatespawn. Who rule. Their contribution, the song "...Of Unspeakable Cults...(Invocation From The Wasteland of Misanthropic Bloodshed)" is one of the best death metal tracks I've heard coming out of these last couple of years. If you don't have this already then you should have started downloading it half way through reading this.
