My first foray into drone.

Reviews so far:

"foreboding" - other life

Who loves ya, baby?
113 releases for 20 bucks is really nothing. Question is if I can bear that much Drumm.
I ended up buying Tannenbaum and leaving it at that, I can't think of anyone I'd be arsed about picking up 113 releases by, even at that price.

I reluctantly ended up buying nothing at all. I already have the Imperial albums and Tannenbaum and could not picture me sifting through hours of noise. There is a moment at which sheer abundance becomes repulsive, apparently. A thought that never crossed my mind before, at least not regarding music.

Beast of Burden
Also, a mix we did earlier in the year is now online. Some of you might get some enjoyment out of it.

a monkey that will go ape
a few drone or drone-adjacent things I have enjoyed lately, mostly not new

magical in the way the best 70s-80s analogue electronics are

recent discovery, everything I want drone to be. electric hurdy-gurdy is an amazing instrument.

6.5 minutes of one massive swelling crescendo

as well as various Boris drone records - Absolutego and The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked especially
