Beware, this is by far the best album they ever put out. It's all downhill from there.

I went to see them a couple of years ago. It was OK for the first 20 minutes then it all blended into one monotonous, bland, dreary bore-fest.


PALLBEARER - FOUNDATIONS OF BURDEN (2014)

Second album doesn't seem as well done as the first, but it does hold it up pretty well thus far. I'm enjoying it. I await to see if it gets better or worse with a few more listens.


KARMA TO BURN - ARCH STANTON (2014)
Trademark instrumental stoner metal from KTB, except a marked improvement on their releases since their reformation in 2010. At under 40 minutes it's short, sweet, and rock and roll as ****.


WAHEELA - HX POP (2014)
Local noise-rock band with their first physical, studio release, on cassette (and download). It's so difficult to capture their live performances - long, droning pieces with screaming vocals, at times peaceful, at times manic, but with a lush, trippy atmosphere. They haven't quite nailed it here either, but done a much better job than previous CD-R releases. And predictably, the b-side live recording is the better side!

I disagree, I think it is way better than their first. The songwriting is more varied, interesting, and mature. Most doom ends up being a massive borefest for me and while their first album was really good, it didn't hold my attention like this one did. I also didn't realize they were from Little Rock (my current city). Man, nothing good comes from Little Rock. I'm amazed. Their album release party is tonight and I think I might go.

I liked the first record a lot. I like its simplicity, and the new one seemed (ever so slightly) more complex. I didn't dislike that about it, but I didn't find myself as invested in it as I was their debut. But with more listens I might change my stance. I liked it, regardless.

She's the lady who sings backing vocals on the Stones original.
This is her own interpretation of it plus a bunch of other stuff including a great version of The Doors Tell All The People.

Dirty Loops - Loopified (2014)

The best thing to happen to mainstream pop in a lonnnng time. High spirited jazz fusion meets Justin Timberlake with chops to spare. Not everything's perfect here (could have done without the 'Wake Me Up' cover or the typical sounding 'Sexy Girls') but this is one helluva debut regardless.


Atlantean Kodex - The White Goddess (2013)

This overtly hyped power metal / doom hybrid sophomore release passed me by back in 2013, but it seems in this case the hype was actually a bit deserved. It has a chilly, epic quality to it that reminds me a bit of Hammerheart by Bathory at times, but with more melody & dynamics.



Timecop1983 - Journeys (2014)

Absolutely stellar 80's time capsule, and that's harder to do these days than you think. Mostly instrumental (with the exception of the opener 'Dreams', the tasty Wang Chung-esque 'Lost In Your Eyes' and the dreamy closer 'Call On You'). Top shelf stuff if your in the right mood either way...

This is fantastic.



Moodie Black - Nausea (2014)

So these guys were formerly known as GAHEDiNDIE (and I think one of the dudes became a member on here at one point, and sent me some of their new material at that time) but they changed their name a few years back. Really digging this record too.

If you aren't aware of them, they are reasonably similar to Dalek, and made a track with them. Which is great.

I remember listening to this and being disappointed with it, but I think that's because I was expecting something closer to Can or Amon Duul II when I heard it dubbed krautrock. But I listened to their most recent one Qua about a week back and really enjoyed it. I think I'll give this album another shot.

EDIT: Man what the **** was wrong with me? This is great.

Have you heard the track with dälek? Last Griot Featuring DALEK | Moodie Black

Also, this is their thread if you weren't aware of them before I posted the album: http://www.musicbanter.com/rap-hip-h...die-black.html
