A Thick Mist

A Thick Mist (May 24, 2017)


 
Back from the dead (I was sick last week, sorry). Particularly fond of the Sunn O))) & Ulver collab mixed with steam locomotives and Tara Jane O’Neil’s creepy minimal drone underneath kids talking about God and shit. Also I fucking love that Screamin’ Jay Hawkins song.

A Thick Mist (May 10, 2017)


 
Got a show chock full of new droney noisy experimental shit including all 3 of the new Important releases, one of the new Deathprod reissues (GET ON THAT), and the debut from Thalassa (William Fowler Collins & Aaron Turner’s new project). Also got some sludgey Swamp Witch on 45 slowed down to 33, Steve Allen talking about home computers in 1983, the resurrection of Part Chimp, and Peruvian folk played on top of Charlemagne Palestine.

The recording equipment started recording in WAV (even though it was set to MP3) so I had to stop the recording because I didn’t have enough room to save a 2 hour long WAV. That’s why the first song by Doc Evans doesn’t show up in the recording. Sorry!

A Thick Mist (May 3, 2017)


 
I finally figured out the new recording equipment so this episode should sound fine. Got to play a bunch of stuff from the Lomax box set on Mississppi, Root Hog Or Die and I found out about Ánde Somby and yoiking from Josh Mason on Twitter, so it seemed fitting to play Somby & Mason together. Also, I fucking love Ragana you guys. You need to get on that shit if you haven’t already. Everything they do is amazing.

A Thick Mist (April 26, 2017)


 
Well, I recorded the whole episode this time but I still have the clipping issue. The good news is I’m 99% what the problem is and next week’s episode should sound like a million bucks.

I can’t get over how amazing that Abdul Rahman Al-Gheid song is. Unlike anything else I’ve heard. Utterly entrancing.
