Lastly, we have a new video from Municipal Waste for “Crank The Heat”. I’ve heard Electrified Brain is quite good… I just haven’t gotten around to that one yet. Regardless, their seventh studio album is out now through Nuclear Blast. Here’s the link for that.
(I might add a track or two, anyway. Prerogative of the writer, and all that)
Lots of good stuff on tap this week, including a new track from masters of metalcore Botch, new music from Tribal Gaze, The Halo Effect, Russian Circles, Devil’s Witches and Guapa (one to definitely watch out for). There’s also plenty of classics if that’s more your taste, including killer cuts from Twisted Sister, Running Wild, and Praying Mantis, a band I haven’t heard in FOREVER so thanks, Buke! All that and more…plus some Mastodon, of course.
In the meantime, 2020 looks to be tumultuous as well, but things are looking up, as I have music to look forward to and scream about at some point. Maybe, at the end of the year, I can tell you if I have succeeded in making more selective choices in music.
2020 gave us a roundhouse kick to the collective bollocks, didn’t it? In my case, it kicked me in the face and didn’t let me listen to anything – this pandemic has been bad for my mental health, and it didn’t help that grad school has continued to essentially take all my time and joy away from me. After September of this year, I just went off the radar musically and I found – much to my detriment – that I could only listen to albums I had originally invested a lot of time in. As such, my favorite albums this year are all touchstones of comfort, albums that I enjoyed heavily throughout the year. However, there is an album that made its way through these touchstones and was able to move to a spot that I didn’t think it would reach.
Welcome back to the pit of despair that has exacerbated my depression EOY list season!
Welcome back one and all to another weekly mixtape installment. On deck this Saturday (uh, Sunday…sorry!) morning, we have a smattering of Ulver for you, some Sun Kil Moon, an appropriately themed cut from Siouxsie and the Banshees, plus a ton more at the link below. Thanks as always for tuning in.
Evidently the internet at Vince’s house is blown. I’m assuming this is because he’s so damn fast and just shorted it out but the powers that be won’t budge to fix it in time so you got me instead. Hi. Anywho, Saturday means it’s time for good music and since we’re here we may as well make today a better day for all who come ’round to see what the 9C fam is blasting. We’ve got everything from a brand spanking new Vølus track as well as a new joint from The Goners, and some Ulcerate, King Dude, Darkthrone, COC, and, of course, some Waylon for good measure – seriously, Saturday ain’t Saturday without Waylon. But, you know there’s more, so head directly below to get your jam on. Cheers.
