A Thick Mist

A Thick Mist (December 6, 2017)


 
While I was pulling records the night before this show, I realized I somehow had never played any of the 3 Hitler records I have, so naturally I grabbed one. Spun one of his speeches (almost 76 years ago to the day) alongside Messages’ modern raga drone and Jute Gyte’s new droney black metal picture disc. Also, don’t miss the old radio horror story from 1949 underneath the new Turner/Menche collaboration.

Top 16 Metal Records Of 2017

I tried my best to keep this list to a round number, like an increment of 5, but I just couldn’t help it. There are 16 records that I needed to tell you about and I couldn’t cut a single one from the list.

There’s way more doom/sludge than I expected, and while I tried to branch out from the big labels, I couldn’t help it too much, so save for the couple self released ones, there’s not a lot of surprises on here. Doesn’t matter, though. IT’S ALL AWESOME.

Since the previous list (Top 10 (Not Drone Or Metal) Records) didn’t have embedded streams, I made a Spotify playlist due to popular demand. But when I went to make a playlist for this list, it was missing numbers 16, 12, 10, 4, & 3, because Spotify sucks and that was too many. So while I still made the playlist, I also embedded a streaming song for everything on this list. I also went back and did the same for the previous list.

As always: Thanks for reading. Thanks for listening. Thanks for making incredible music.

A Thick Mist (November 29, 2017)

 
Check out that new Aquarelle record. A+ stuff. I found a bunch of records over Thanksgiving weekend, including another Malcolm X record, field recordings from India, and Kimio Eto’s koto work. Was only able to get to one from the new Important records batch, but that just means the other two will make an appearance next week.

Top 10 (Not Drone Or Metal) Records Of 2017

Here’s the first of three lists. In case you couldn’t tell by the title, the other two lists will be a drone list and a metal list. This one has records that don’t fit in either of those lists. However, I could’ve argued for maybe half of these showing up on the drone list, but I tried not to get too loosey goosey with my definition of drone.

There’s a ton of debuts here (6 to be exact) which is really exciting. Here’s hoping they continue their genius. The reviews/descriptions are pretty short on these and will be the same on the other lists because I just don’t have enough time to write 30+ full reviews. Imagine they’re just taglines or something.

Instead of uploading a song to stream for every record, I made a playlist on Spotify. I’m not crazy about Spotify for a lot of reasons, but in this context, it falls short because two of the artists on this list aren’t on Spotify (numbers 9 and 4), so you’ll just have to seek those out for yourself.

Update: I added song streams for everything below because I ended up doing it for the metal list and felt weird if I didn’t do it for all the lists.

As always: Thanks for reading. Thanks for listening. Thanks for making incredible music.

A Thick Mist (November 22, 2017)


 
Got pretty cacophonous a few times there (Misra & Majeure, Ratkje & Neubauten). I got to revisit some old favorites (Owlfood & Nihil Obstat) and started things off by digging into the best part of Bell Witch’s new masterpiece.

A Thick Mist (November 11, 2017)


 
Back from a couple weeks off, sorry. That just means lots of new shit this time, though. Tossed in a few techno-leaning jams this time.

Due to its power, I try not to wield the seashells record often, so this is the first time I’ve busted it out for A Thick Mist. In case you need to hear the whole thing, I ripped it a while ago, which you can download here.

Also, if you only buy one drone record in the next few months, definitely make it Olli Aarni’s Nielu.

A Thick Mist (October 18, 2017)


 
Kelly Lee Owens is probably techno record of the year. Upper Wilds is probably rock record of the year. The Bulgarian folk mixed with Nancarrow’s player piano work is so much better than I expected it to be. Also, check out the Discogs page for that Bulgarian record because I played 8 songs, each with a slew of musicians involved, so if you want to know who/what/etc, Discogs does a better job at conveying that info than I could here.

A Thick Mist (October 11, 2017)


 
I’m back! Sorry about the past 2 weeks. Technical difficulties at the station made doing a vinyl show impossible. But that just means I have a backlog of excellent records to spin and I packed this episode tight with quality sounds. I’m especially fond of the Xela into GY!BE with Vietnam War recordings sprinkled in. And the new Rafael Anton Irisarri featuring Siavash Amini has me in heaven.

Also, the talk breaks might seem strangely timed but it’s because I started the show at 6:45 instead of 7. I had to run to a meeting right after 9:00 so I couldn’t push the show until then but I still wanted the full 2 hours, so here we are.

I got to play one of my all-time favorite songs (“Nine Brothers & The Wolf”) and what might very well be the metal record of the year (As We Cup Our Hands…). Good times all around. Still down to one turntable and I’m not sure when the other will get fixed, but I seem to be managing.

This was a total mess of a show. I forgot my headphones. One of the turntables wasn’t working, which I used twice before noticing. The batteries on one of my Korgs died. Made it through mostly unscathed, though, with some surprisingly excellent moments, like the Deceh/Huxley section and basically the entire closing half hour.

A Thick Mist

A Thick Mist (August 23, 2017)


 
The Bark Haze / Traum record is a weird collab/split picture disc that plays from the inside out, ends in a locked groove, and each channel has one band’s music on it. So unless you’re playing the record through a mixer that lets you pan all the way to one channel, you’re listening to a collaboration between Bark Haze & Traum, but you’re technically able to listen to each band’s “side” separately. And I just found out it’s the second part of a 2001-themed trilogy (the other 2 records functioning the same way as this one), but they never ended up releasing the third one. The first one came out, though, and it’s with Windy & Carl and Heavy Winged! So now I totally need to get that too.

Also I was able to include some more timely political speeches, this time Nixon’s Watergate resignation speech. I hope to hear something similar in the near future.

A Thick Mist

A Thick Mist (August 9, 2017)


 
As of this episode, A Thick Mist is no longer an exclusively vinyl radio show. It’s still mostly vinyl. My attempts at hooking up the Kaoss Pads to the turntables at the radio station failed, so I was left with two Kaoss Pads and a lingering desire to use them for A Thick Mist. Enter: my iPod, iPad, and a beastly collection of digital music that I never played on AGB Radio. So now I can play up to four tracks live on the air, two of which can include digital versions of records that are impossible to find or prohibitively expensive. I’m pretty psyched about this.

Dug deep into the Heavenly Shore box set on Tompkins Square from a few years ago which was fun. Some of those sermons are just insane.
