Embracing the Descent: June 30 – July 6, 2019

EMBRACING TEMP LOGO

Welcome back to another edition of Embracing the Descent. Miss us? Rhetorical question of course. It has been a minute so as a refresher or if it’s your first visit, we briefly discuss a handful of this week’s new releases that stood out for whatever reason and maybe, from time to time, a week behind. We won’t be hitting everything because a 40 – 60 entry piece ain’t happening and seriously, who’s got that kind of time. Head below to see what’s got our knickers in a bunch and don’t forget to check out the full listing from Monday’s Initial Descent. Continue reading

We’ve reached the end of another one of those kinds of weeks that make me want to pull my hair out, had I any hair left to pull out in the first place.  Thankfully, music soothes the savage beast, and we’ve got a boatload of goodies in store for you today.  Take a listen below and let us know your favorite tracks we might have forgotten; we always appreciate hot leads on good music.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 85 (6.22.2019)

Another week has gone by and I’ve found myself beset with yet another annoying round of illness.  I’m beginning to question if there isn’t some divine presence out there that is punishing me for something or another; I used to be one of those people who never gets sick, and in the last 7 months I’ve dealt with everything from the flu to e. coli.  Fortunately it’s the weekend, which means I get free reign to lay around in bed and recuperate with some good music, and so do you, thanks to another installment of our weekly playlist.  Of particular note this week is the new Drab Majesty single and video accompaniment, which a ton of us on staff are going nuts for, but there’s plenty in there for any and all tastes.  Take a listen below, and as always, thanks for checking us out.

Beware the Ides of June.  That’s how that phrase goes right?  Yeah, don’t bother looking it up, I nailed it.  It’s hard to believe that in just two weeks this year will officially be half over.  We’ve been treated to so much good music the last six months, and there’s plenty more coming down the pipeline.  As always, we here at good old 9C have compiled some of the best of those for you in our weekly mixtape playlist alongside the other good stuff we’ve been jamming.  Take a look below and see what suits you.

Compared to last week’s short holiday schedule, this week has felt like it’s dragged on forever.  Thank whomever it’s Saturday now and you and I both get to enjoy another one of our mixtapes, replete with the best music new and old we all have been listening to.  There’s bound to be something good in there for you, so take a beat and dig in.
