This is one of his crowning achievements: "And the flowers they'll bloom" (1995).

I almost forgot how cool The Gathering were. They started out all goth doom, which was cool, but by How to Measure a Planet? they were some kind of prog, space rock, alternative rock band of awesome proportions. It's a double album with some more doom elements on the second half. With the space rock **** going on some of it doesn't sound a million miles away from a trip hop Ufomammut with a chick singer. Or Massive Attack with doom riffs about halfway through the song.

****ing awesome whatever it is though.

^ I first heard them played on a local college radio station in 1995 and was so impressed by what I heard that I bought that album the next day. I've been a fan of the band since then.
Have almost everything they've ever released on CD or vinyl as well as a couple dozen live shows on audio and video.

Just added this one to my collection a couple of days ago...


The Mermen - Do You Hear What I Hear - A Very Mermen Christmas (2012)

It just became my favorite Christmas album!

Here they are at Slim's in San Francisco on December 23, 2012, performing "Do You Hear What I Hear"

Love The Gathering. Beyond that, Anneke (the lead chick) also does a lot of vocals on the last couple Devin Townsend Project albums.

This is for all my friends living it out in NYC (or in a mental state akin to it).

In 2010, the legendary Gil Scott-Heron released his 13th and final studio album - his first in 16 years, following a period of personal and legal troubles with drug addiction.

The album featured an intimate track titled, "New York is Killing Me."

But nothing could prepare me for Chris Cunningham's audiovisual remix of the track - a dark ambient featurette depicting the isolation among millions in the vast, shadowy, and endless night of the city.

To all my friends who feel lost in a giant, empty world (or who simply dig a bit of well-executed dark ambient post-industrial ethereal music)- This is for you.
