A Thick Mist (May 23, 2018)

The Country Girls album cover
 
The new CHRCH record is the absolute best and not nearly enough people are talking about Leila Abdul-Rauf. OR Timber Rattle, that shit is premium doom drone folk. And that Yoshi Wada/Popol Vuh blend is pretty heavenly. Also, kinda surprised I haven’t played Yautja yet, like anywhere on AGB, ever. Finally remedied that. So yeah this episode rules.

Very happy to finally have both of those ColdWorld records, the new Insect Ark is incredibly underrated, and the mix of Oneirogen with Gregorian chanting is one of my favorite A Thick Mist moments in a long while.

Also, I fixed the clipping issue from last week (someone fucked with the recording equipment in the studio).

A Thick Mist (May 9, 2018)


 
Somehow everything got clipped while recording this episode, so it sounds kinda shitty. Sorry about that. No idea what happened. On the bright side, there’s a brand new Kyle Bobby Dunn piece, a collaboration between Visions & Phurpa, 4 new (and 1 recent) releases from Thrill Jockey, and all sorts of other great stuff.

Also, I opened with playing Bloodyminded as the background music, but that didn’t work very well, so I flipped the record and started with Damion Romero, but the songs are short and they blend together with no delineation, so I’m not sure how far into the tracklist I got, hence the “maybe Burning Star Core.”

A Thick Mist (May 2, 2018)


 
That RLYR record finally landed and it’s definitely one of my favorite things from this year. Check out the interview I did with them and read a few words about how crazy good Actual Existence is over here. The Thailand field recordings next to Aufgehoben’s harshness was maybe a little much, but the Aelter & L’Ordre Chazili D’Egypte mix was quite excellent.
