The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 51 (8.25.2018)

playlist - mixtape

We skipped a week, again. Because things. But we’re back and man, I’m still loving that new art up there. It’s the little things in life that brings joy these days. Anyway, these playlists are sort of like Initial Descent in a way, you might find a song you haven’t heard or a new artist you had no idea about OR you simply use this to pass the time while mowing the lawn or kicking a can. No idea what you do with it but use as you wish. This week we’ve got picks from all over the place: some new some old and some bl…wait. Seriously, it’s another solid bunch that we’ve been jamming since Vol. 50 and it’s long enough to run through a twelve pack, or three, so score. One last thing: I know all of you understand the concept of a comment section so listen to this thing and offer up some picks you would’ve included. Or not, choice is yours.

Either way, have a great rest of the weekend.

If you think of that scene in the ’69 classic Easy Rider, when the group goes on a bad, bad LSD trip, every time you hear or see the word ‘psychedelic’ you’re not alone. I’m right there with you and evidently Mountain Tamer is as well. On their upcoming full length Godfortune//Dark Matters the band would be poised to do the soundtrack if said ’69 classic were to be made today or remade as so often is the case. This album is full of hefty fuzz, riffs for days and echoed vocals that trick your brain into thinking you’re already on a trip…somewhere……in outer space…….or something that involves a hit….of something. Seriously though, MTNTMR has impressed the hell out of me with their Floydish songwriting skills and satanic biker mentality. We recently sent them our set of Profile questions to learn more and now you get to join in the knowledge. Don’t forget to visit the links contained within to show them and their labels some support!  Continue reading
