Greetings, fellow travelers of the path, and welcome to another Nine Circles Saturday morning mixtape. This time around, we’ve got a slew of death metal tracks, BIG|BRAVE’s noisy, glorious sludge, a little Alcest, and some classic Tom Waits & newer Steve Von Till to round things out. Check it out below.
This past year has seen some of the most exhilarating and emotionally deep metal that I’ve seen in a while, but what about the non-metal side of things? Well, fortunately we’ve had just as many pleasant surprises on that front, and just as much music that will ultimately be talked about for years to come. It bears repeating that I am humbled that I am in the position to be able to talk at length about all of this, and boy there sure is a lot to talk about. From deep, brooding atmosphere to technical wizardry to lo-fi indie glory, polished folk and everything in between, there’s a lot to get into, so strap in as we bring you the very best of all things non-metal and metal adjacent.
Good morning and welcome to another edition of our weekly Saturday morning playlist. This week, we’ve got a choice cut from the brand new Spirit Adrift album, more zany covers from the 2 Minutes to Late Night crew, and some Lizzo because we don’t hate fun around here. Check it all out below.
Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning playlist series. This week, Khemmis covers Alice in Chains, I’m extatic over the announcement of a second new Mountain Goats album this year, and Anton won’t stop yelling about Dephosphorus again. All that and more down below.
