TALSOUNDS – acquiesce

Posted in ambient, chicago, dreamscapes, drone, experimental, Uncategorized on May 24, 2020 by vesalahde

even if this is droning earth blog i rarely get drone/ambient promos nowadays; as you can see from the long supporter list this is much better than average dreamscapes.

ZOETROPE – amnesty

Posted in 80s, chicago, LPs i used to have, speed metal, street metal, thrash metal, Uncategorized on March 22, 2020 by vesalahde

bit confused with some new releases so tripping back to the 80s, this was underrated, no one else liked it but i was spinning it like a madman, still sounds unique.

BLUE DREAM – volume won

blue dream - volume won - promo

dreamy, bluesy, heavy, surprising, relaxing… trip, one of these bands who play whatever they want and it sounds good, hard to categorize, at times thought im listening pink floyd, at times gary moores guitar, singer could sing in some britpop band (one of those two) too, so go ahead, make my day and figure it out.. kozmik

OF WOLVES – no loss for words

one of my favorites from the past years, from the “sludge” category, wish there were more bands like this who dare to say it straight and not write some cryptographic mumbojumbo bullshit. One track also on droning earth vol69.

WITCHES the familiar/exiting

Posted in chicago, drone, experimental, improvisation on June 3, 2011 by vesalahde
great 2 tracks from the chicago duo, these guys can make atmospheric scapes.
“Witches is a duo from Chicago performing dark psych drone. They use instruments to create dense and ominous atmospheres to portray dark and evolving tones.”

ps. sorry people sending me downloads, if you want some kinda review, send streaming tracks too, no time/bandwidth to download huge albums now.
