"What we really need to do is create a powerful sense of dread."

Yeah. If you ever thought early Einstürzende Neubauten needed a little more spoken word and subtlety, this is basically it. David Tibet reads an ambigous Thomas Ligotti poem while fucking up whatever definition of 'music' you had prior to listening. The result is eerie, claustrophobic and intense.

Happy Earth Day, everyone. I'm a little late to the party because truth be told... I am not quite a hippy nor someone that focuses on pseudo-festivities within that sort. Nor do I buy into the corporate myths surrounding climate change, as if we did keep doing that, Earth has basically 'died' 16 or so times now.

Not that Earth though! We're here to talk about American minimalist drone outfit, Earth, not our home. So anyway; the muzak. There seems to be a lot of discussion around Earth's debut ... read more

For most people - this kind of cultural and musical genocide was deemed enough around 30 years ago, but with current societal events there's still money worth making it seems. So, yes, I decided to open this seemingly-inoffensive novelty ditty as my brisk spring British morning began.

Nick Cave, from my time being into his work, gives me an impression that he is someone very *very* close to perfection but never achieves it. There are always tracks which drag down his records, even if the good content is absolutely astounding.

For example - The Good Son is beautifully consistent although some of the final tracks (not Lucy!) aren't as great compared to, well, The Ship Song or essentially what came first. He front loads albums like hell, and there are only a few times when it ... read more

Awesome, thanks! It'll be some time before I get to them all, as you can tell, but I'll listen to them for sure!
