p.s. eliot - Introverted Romance in Our Troubled Minds, 2009

such wonderful and lovely power pop that will never cease to make me happy. Some of my favorite vocals, very genuine in cadence and tone.



Bad Banana - Crushfield, 2010

p.s. eliot is comprised of two lovely sisters and each of them has branched out with other projects to create something of a family. Bad Banana is exponentially more lo fi

Circle Takes the Square - Decompositions: Volume 1, 2012

With an album this good it's unfair to leave my CTTS input at As the Roots Undo. Should it be blasphemy to prefer this one? They're quite different beasts all in all, this one is refined immaculately. In my opinion it's a metal album on the whole, but people would probably disagree. But tightening the screws of ATRU and polishing the quality, creating new and more expansive bouts of maximum music, writing very complex suites of atmospheric/progressive sludge metal, well it's great.

Bone Awl - Meaningless Leaning Mess, 2008

Aside from sporting one of the absolute greatest album covers of all time, this is savage. Bone Awl acted, naturally, as a catalyst for getting into this very raw and very monotonous form of primitive punkened black metal. It's so simple but compelling and catchy.



Ythogtha - False Faith, 2007

somewhat obscure for another introductory group but after Bone Awl I levitated towards this thing.



Arnaut Pavle - Arnaut Pavle, 2013

My favorite, probably, one off release from this widespreading style I now am the master of.



Sejr - Demo, 2013

From Denmark and the Posh Isolation family tree comes one of the more shredding and badass groups.

Left For Dead - Splitting Heads, 1998

This is some feral hardcore that looked at all the other hardcore at the time and thought it was all some weak ****. So Left For Dead shred metallic and often fast thrashing business with heavier breakdowns than perhaps any given moon.

Pg Heart Transplant - Hope You Enjoy Heaven, 2008

I was taken by the name and proximity to Iron Lung and I checked this out, one of the first I suppose noise oriented things I was about. It's disgusting and abrasive and sludge gushing like especially early Swans had they really wanted to hurt people with their music.

Cold Sun - Dark Shadows, 1970

this album occupied a lot of atmosphere while at my former mountain top camp, playing this and watching the routine of the hill's surprisingly diverse populace through a telescope. It's fantastic psych rock that demands the attention of psych fans.

Bucket Full of Teeth - Discogaraphy

BFOT's discography actually consists of several EPs but with a run time of 49 minutes I can call it an album.

They're something else. With screamo becoming more or less of an event, the populous needed more brutality, more unhinged chaos, more teeth. BFOT play the most grinding screamo you could imagine alongside Combatwoundedveteran. Except the former has a much higher concentration of eccentricty, incorporating psychedelia here and there, but never not raping.

https://pygmylush.bandcamp.com/album/bitter-river

Pygmy Lush - Bitter River, 2007

Pygmy Lush hold a special place in my heart, just like literally every single other artist in this journal. A band sculpted from the remnants of screamo godfathers pg.99 (who'd given the world unsanctioned chaos in the most **** you sort pf way), they offer a lush feast of slow folk with the requisite sadness of groups like Red House Painters. Bitter River here isn't my favorite, in fact it's their weakest offering, but it's a transitional album, with the acoustic style quite sparse and independent and simplistic, and intertwined with loud noise rock tracks akin to a more emotive Jesus Lizard. They don't trade off very well in all honesty, and the album suffers slightly from inconsistency, but I'm not gonna sit here and tell you it's not great.


Mount Hope, 2008

But now we have the true lush, strictly folk oriented and positively (negatively?) somber. There wasn't so much to the clean portion of Bitter River, but Mount Hope is folk finally realized. Downtempo and nostalgic for things that never were, never will be.


https://pygmylush.bandcamp.com/album...lp-w-turboslut

Split w/ Turboslut, 2009

So the post-skramz freckled throughout Bitter River wasn't completely abandoned when we look through their whole discography. The Pygmy Lush side of this split alternates between raucous takes much superior in their own right to the early stuff, and a still evolving malady of stark folk music, and it's all some of their greatest material.

The split is home to the definitive number one PL track right here. Haunting, gorgeous, dreamy, smooth, hopeful, hopeless, hopelessly hopeful, fullyhope lesshope, and now there's no more pages left in the thesaurus. I chose this song as my spirit guide in the midst of a DMT trip and I simply can't imagine life without it



Turboslut is cool too, like neo-grunge

Alice Cooper - Love it to Death, 1971

Some time ago my dad had made me a small batch of mix CDs for certain artists (the others being Deep Purple, Judas Priest, the Scorpions, and Ted Nugent, but the Alice Cooper mix was my favorite by far. As of now his/their music is an integral part of my youth, so many tracks that I can't ever rid from my mind. Love it to Death begins the critical era, obviously regarded as a massive classic. The Ballad of Dwight Fry (censored by those posers), is a cathartic track, one of my favorites ever. Caught in a Dream too, simple yet so arresting for me.



Killer, 1971

At the time I can imagine the reception of Love it to Death and its shocking and dark content, but Killer becomes even more sinister. It also rocks even harder. The atmosphere is that of shady dealings, and Halo of Flies is the masterpiece. Another great cut, Desperado, speaks of the methods of a hitman, coupled with brooding haunted dynamics.



School's Out, 1972

Massively underrated. Barring the title track, none of these songs get the recognition they truly deserve. This album contains a good portion of my favorite Cooper tracks. Experiments in acoustic stylings give way to a unique sound. I dunno why it's not unanimously on par with their other monuments, because it's something quite special and intimate. Luney Tune appeared on the mix CD, and I'm thankful for that, it's an amazing track of madness. Honestly it's probably my favorite alongside Killer.



Billion Dollar Babies, 1973

The most revered yet, and perhaps ever. It continues the style associated with its predecessor but is apparently a better commercial effort.
