- The title track (track 3) has dogs yapping in the background like she recorded it in her living room and someone knocked on her front door.fooler
HMLTD, West of Eden.
An album of pop, rock, noise, dance, industrial, country, vaudeville bangers.
Elephant tree, Habits.
An album of drone, stoner, doom, heavy rock bangers.
An album of black metal, post rock, shoegaze bangers.
Chemtrails, The Peculiar Smell of the Inevitable
An album of psyche, garage, punk rock bangers.
Shitkid, Duo Limbo/Mellan himmel å helvete
An album of alt-rock, metal, Swedish lovesick bangers from what I think is the best singer/songwriter in Sweden at the moment - recorded with members of The Melvins and Butthole Surfers. Probably my album of the year so far until her new one is released in August.
HUM (best know for their buzz bin hit Stars) surprise releases an album 22 years since their last release.
The album runtime is a little under an hour with only eight tracks, obviously focusing on the layered guitar work and massive atmospheric sound that Hum has balanced excellently. The equal nature of blending shoegaze/stoner doom/alternative rock/sludge metal, is no easy task. The chugs and riffs carry a lot of weight moving songs forward without feeling overdone.
I remember listening to music, years ago.
