The Sad Bastard Book Club - And the Sirens Sang of a Time When There Were No Foghorns [EP] (2016)

The best Alt-Country album of the year that I've heard so far, by a million miles. Gothic tinges, and a progressive streak that I've not come across often within this style of music. Really good stuff which is highly recommended to fans of Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat. But honestly something completely different.

Mutual Benefit - Skip a Sinking Stone (2016)

Another amazingly chill and beautiful album by Jordan Lee. A lovely follow up to Love's Crushing Diamond.

Robert Johnson - Steady Rollin' Man

Quote:
An odd release on an odd British label called Touched.
There's been a theory floating around for a few years now that the Robert Johnson recordings we've all been hearing for many years have been at the wrong speed, that they've been too fast. Sounds nutty doesn't it? Well, it does until you start hearing the slowed down versions that make up this album. An interesting article on this can be found at the vendor's site here: Steady Rollin’ Man: a revolutionary critique of Robert Johnson
When you slow down a recording, particularly a voice, it is generally pretty evident that you've done so. The articulations get all sloppy and odd, with things like the letter "s" seeming to go on far too long even with fairly subtle changes. There's no sign of that here, his voice seems completely natural. It also changes the thin, wavering vocals we've become used to to something much more akin to his contemporaries.
I suppose the jury's still out on this, but I'm starting to lean a bit towards this theory being correct..
I concur.

No One Deserves Happiness by The Body



This is, hands down, the eeriest album I've listened to so far this year. From the way Chip King's feint, screeched vocals are contrasted against those of the guest female vocalist who delivers beautifully sung, Bjork-esque lines throughout the project, down to the heavy, sludgey, drone guitar riffs that rip through layers of distortion only to be elevated by the industrial drum tracks that just as easily could be found on an IDM album, this thing is guaranteed to make you feel uneasy. And if that wasn't enough, the album even showcases some influence from the ritual ambient scene, to create even more of a hellish, dark, soundscape.

Saying all that, I'm still a little unsure of exactly where this sits with me. I'm a little polarized after finally giving it a couple of full listens, but I do know that I like it.

I've tried it a couple of times, and the female vocalist just does not blend well with it I think. I'll give it another go, since I probably had my standards too high following the collaboration with Thou.

Dayuuuuuumn son. Better every listen. Some great features and stand out bangers. 'Greedy' is a tune.
