With Apologies to Mr Walker

Can't believe I left the Scott Walker & Sunn0))) album 'Soused' out of my Top 10 Albums of 2014....what a fool! It's an absolutely fantastic album; deep, rich drones, operatic vocals and an otherwordly atmosphere that pulls you right into an alluring yet nightmarish, dreamlike world. Go forth and listen.

The Primitive Power of Dylan Carlson and Earth

Dylan Carlson released the first album to carry the Earth moniker back in 1993, beginning a journey that has taken on a variety of influences, some overt, mostly subtle. You can hear shades of sludge-metal, folk, jazz and country nestled in the ever present drone. Unique and powerful music.



Here's some of my reviews:
