AGB Radio (October 31, 2016) – Halloween Special


My favorite episode to do of the whole year. I spend way too much time putting this together but it’s so much fun. Like previous years, I give the start and end times for everything because there’s so much going on at once, but unlike previous years, I don’t specifically mention whenever I edited a piece to add reverb or reverse it or slow it down or anything like that because honestly I lost track.

No samples from botched executions this time, but still plenty of murder confessions and assault victim reports, EVP recordings, strange animal sounds, trance breathing, solar wind, abnormal heart beats, plus the usual black ambient, bleak industrial, and nightmare noise. I do my best to make this truly unsettling and I think I at least come close to accomplishing that goal.

You can check out the Halloween Specials from 2015, 2014, and 2013, but 2013 is just like a regular episode. 2014 was when I upped my game and started throwing in shit like the Jonestown Death Tape.

VIDEO PREMIERE: Joe Clark – Sleeptalker



You might not have heard of Joe Clark yet, nor even the label releasing his new tape, Throw Me In The Susquehanna on Glowing Window Recordings, but that’s probably all gonna change real quick because Joe is that fucking good and Glowing Window has already put out some insanely awesome tapes. Joe Clark is out of Rochester, NY, he’s been messing around as the guitarist in post-hardcore band Druse, but this is (as far as I can tell) his first solo release, and it’s absolutely fucking glorious, a dreamy guitar drone that fills every corner of the room, either with its delicate delayed whispers or its euphoric wall of static, lifting you up off the sodden floorboards and sending you straight through the roof to unnameable places, acting like a Babylon Candle for when you can only feel the place you want to be even if you can’t imagine it. Joe’s got an incredible talent for working with the loud/quiet dynamic without making it obvious or clichéd, for evoking melancholy and decay without resorting to the crumbling tape loop sound, and for nailing it 100-fucking-percent every moment of Susquehanna‘s painfully short life.

This video for “Sleeptalker” (the lead single from the tape) is a surreal haunted look into a retro-future full of half-forgotten memories and buried emotions making exquisite use of found footage that includes NASA stress tests, young lovers, missing teeth, the ocean, sky, sun, trees, and a humungous fire. Beautiful in every way.

Throw Me In The Susquehanna is coming out super soon, like, hopefully within days. There’s only 50 copies and it’s dirt cheap ($6) considering it was professionally dubbed and has pro-printed j-cards. It’s currently available for preorder on Planning For Burial’s Big Cartel page, because the man behind PFB, Thom, is the man behind Glowing Window, although I’m pretty confident you’ll be able to grab it on GW’s Bandcamp page soon enough. Speaking of which, head over there and grab the two other releases GW has available, they’re fucking AMAZZZING and you can name your own price.
