Time for some black metal! Come for the hilarious name, stay for the crushing sense of doom and horror, and the amazing guitar tone. This would make a great soundtrack to something I don’t want to look at.
This is a great song for singing along to, especially in meetings.
Senri Kawaguchi is a phenomenal drummer.
What’s that? Some song from a Nintendo game? Yes! Listen to it with headphones on, it’s amazing.
I’m going to post my favorite Deodato track (S.O.S. – Fire In The Sky) later, but in the meantime have this:
I couldn’t come up with one particular track by Snow Tha Product I liked more than others, so I made a playlist. She’s one of the best rappers I’ve heard in a long time. Her topics are not super original (although her bisexual Mexican-American perspective is), but her skills are amazing and before you know it she will say some phrase like “the type that makes local strippers to do too much for crumpled ones” and you have to go back to figure out how she possibly made that fit the rhythm perfectly. And she raps in Spanish, too.
I used to play this in the office a lot. It’s nice music to work by, and juuust safe for work enough you can play it on a second monitor without getting HR complaints. But only just.
This great synth-pop track was not what I was expecting from Steven Wilson. I need to check out more of his music.
When Jurie recently dropped an excellent Boiler Room Set I got reminded of one of my all time favorites. It’s basically the best “Black Music” mix I know and there’s hardly a party where I don’t start with this.
I’m a huge fan of Mahavishnu Orchestra and John McLaughlin. I never listened to Jeff Beck. And then I came across this. I think it’s… better than the original?
This is a great cover of one of my favorite The Cure songs by pagan doom rockers Alunah.
