Top 15 Drone Records Of 2018

I was putting together my list of favorite drone records from this year and noticed a theme: a lot of them were made by women. So I decided to take out the dudes and make a list of just lady droners. But when I started working on that list, I realized I was leaving out a lot of my favorites because they weren’t capital-D Drone records. So I said fuck it, I’m just going to make a list of my favorite drone records made by female artists even if they’re just kind of drone, or droney, or droning, or whatever. So while this is my least Drone year end drone list, it makes up for it by 1: being more true to what I like, 2: highlighting under-represented artists, and 3: still churning out a fuck ton of drone.

Once again, I tried to shy away from the high profile artists (which, sadly, there aren’t nearly enough of in this niche). There were really only three that probably would’ve been on my list if I felt they didn’t need my extra support: Sarah Davachi, Olivia Block, and Mountain Man. So if you somehow missed any of those, definitely scope them out asap. And Phew’s Voice Hardcore was on the list until I found out the CD version came out in 2017 even though the vinyl and digital editions came out this year. Oops. That’s another crazy one that you should check out.

There are two drone records, though, that were made by dudes and I feel were not given nearly enough attention, and were definitely Top 5 material for me, so I would feel remiss if I didn’t mention the wholly unique blissful doom drone by A Story Of Rats (featuring Garek Druss of Dull Knife) and the debut collaboration between High Aura’d & Asama (aka Thommy Saraceno of Owlfood). Those two records are fucking phenomenal and deserve your dollars.

I made a Spotify playlist again, because even though I hate Spotify, some people rely on it, so here you go. It’s missing songs from numbers 12, 13, and 14 because they’re not on Spotify, so make sure to stream those below.

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

See what made the cut after the jump.

A Thick Mist (November 7, 2018)

I’m back! Again. I fucked up my back by sitting around all day a few weeks ago and couldn’t stand or walk or anything.

But hey there’s new Jute Gyte! New Ragana! New Jasmine Guffond! New Inexorum! New Caretaker! New Embassador Dulgoon!

There’s also a new pressing of the Jonestown massacre released by TPOS and I’ve heard it a bunch of times and I know how harrowing it is but every time I hear it it’s like I’m hearing it for the first time and I just get fucking devastated all over again. So I thought it would be ok to play that during a normal (i.e. non-Halloween/horror) episode but that might have been a mistake. So for those of you not looking to totally ruin your day, skip from about 00:30 to 01:00. However, it does go perfectly alongside the newest Caretaker release. And the Fear Falls Burning/Sunn O))) pairing is pretty excellent as well.

The new Low record might be my favorite thing to come out this year. So incredible. Definitely check it out even if you aren’t a Low fan (like me) because it sounds like Basinski produced it (he didn’t).

Also, don’t be surprised of that Afsprengi Satans record shows up again in my Halloween episode.

A Thick Mist

A Thick Mist (September 12, 2018)


 
I think this might be the highest concentration of my favorite metal in one episode I’ve ever had yet. Gris’ classic reissued, the phenomenal new Mamaleek & Mare records, and my old high school favorite Gift by Taproot getting its first vinyl release that some might consider a guilty pleasure but fuck that, no shame in liking what you like. And this one still holds up for me.

A Thick Mist (September 5, 2018)


 

This episode is only about an hour long because I woke up late. Apparently, according to my wife, I woke up in the middle of the night and turned off my alarm. Oops. So there’s only a few songs this time but it’s still a pretty sweet episode.
