We’re going to keep things short and sweet today.  Normally I’d be more wordy in these things, but I’m dead tired today.  Last night (as of this writing) I caught the LA date of the Primitive Man & Ulthar mini-tour.  It was an insanely cool show; it was my first time seeing Ulthar and they did not disappoint in the slightest, and the songs from Primitive Man’s upcoming split with Hell (more on that from yours truly later on down the line) sound uglier and more heavy than getting an anvil dropped on your face.  Local support from grind/powerviolence crew Whelm and doomy death metal purveyors Teeth rounded out the night in fine form.  All in all a great night, but getting home later than my Old Man Body can handle on a weeknight isn’t doing me any favors today.

Maybe that wasn’t as short as I had expected.  Oh well.  Time to let the music speak for itself.  Catch you next time.

Welcome back and happy Saturday everyone.  Another week behind us, and I’m happy to see the other side of this one.  I planned on spending this last week catching up with work after being away on vacation but it turns out that my mother gave me one last Christmas present: the goddamn plague.  So this week has been mostly me, already sick, taking care of my partner, who got hit much harder than me with whatever bug we got passed to us.  All my downtime did give me plenty of space to explore a ton of music though, both old and new.  I’ve got some really exciting promos in my inbox that are making me happy, but I’ve also been catching up on late 2018 releases I’ve been missing, like a ton of releases from Sentient Ruin that I unfortunately slept on.  Let me know what else I should have listened to in the comments.  That’s what the internet is for, right?
