1 – Cosmic vibrations / Hypnogogic amazements. You can see from the number how much I like this, and there's only 9 tracks. The guitar line in the title track has a funky nostalgic shimmer-groove down hard.
2 – New free ep out of nowhere. Josh from velvet Cacoon. Perfect black metal in 3 minute po song sizes. Luxurious.
3 – really like this new ep. The last black metal track is absurd.
4 – 'nother free album of incredible BM, this time like nothing ever – deeply ingrained oriental influences throughout, like Fell Voices – at a push.
5 – more freeness – Affilyated 'regrinds' of Relayted tracks. Such a cool concept to this, the results are a spectacular as the originals, sometimes more so for different reasons. You need this NOW.
6 – You also need this in your life if you don;t have it already. One of the rare albums that will improve your lot through listening
7a – new album is too too beautiful by far. Burst my heart apart on it three times.
7B – this is such a great album too, every track pumps the blood through your veins twice as hard as the last
9 – ridiculously young talent, trotted the globe and come back with this at just 19. Ambient kraut, or something.
10 – last but by no means least – Umesh Amtey of Brown Jenkins new band's demo ep – next level disorienting funeral doom.
