listening to: 2014
The year that was streaming online, or the year that was no longer physical.
The Top 4
1. WATTER – This World
Featuring members of post-rock instrumental group Grails and the seminal Slint, this took me by surprise for its lingering touches of icy melancholy. It feels longer than it actually is.
2. EARTH – Primitive & Deadly
Additional vocals from Mark Lanegan and a woman I've never heard of set to slow, lumbering steam train ride music from a spaghetti western, adds another dimension to Dylan Carlson's creation.
3. SWANS – To Be Kind
Monumental, abrasive, life-swallowing, choke-hold filled set of songs all wrapped up in a world of everything. Cathartic and brilliant.
4. BONG – Stoner Rock
Timeless meditative hypnotic ritual ancient long amplified, lost in a desert, exhausted from the heat.
