Pathetically late from me, can’t be bothered to blame work or kids, I’m just shit.
@shucks That is one meaty beast thanks, On first glance I thought it would be more heavy rock than it was, maybe typeface expectations, I knew about half the artists, and I knew that that there was a decent bit of riffage in there, Although I was raised on it and still find occasional bits of post hardcore an emo I like I often end up feeling like i don’t have enough guitar in my live. This one took me back to my younger days, listening to the likes of Primus, Jetplane and NOFX, as well as lots of stuff that reminded me of other things. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
good Jaws opening, Hounds is proper meaty, power chords. Never heard of Lonely the Brave but like the build, Seen Justice live before - good strong beats to keep the mix levels up. I enjoyed Heads, like a slow sludgy build like a meaty version of the new year, strong vocal, listened to the album too.
Never heard of riddle of steel, definitely expected something much harder, enjoyed it, good bit of dismemberment plan stylings in there.
Tim Ten Yen injects a good bit of pace change, nice and bouncy. Axis of, again not as heavy as I would have guessed particularly with the proclaimers’ish vocal, good stuff.
Mad Capsule markets, I know this track from somewhere maybe a skate video. Haven’t listened to Cave In in years, one of their best tracks for sure, same goes for Cadence Weapon on both counts. Overall a lot of the stuff on the mix isn’t what I tend to listen too these days but I really enjoyed it and I got to relive my youth a little. Thanks Shucks.
Good range on here thanks, only 4 artists I had no inkling off but that shows it’s in tune with me,
I know Low and Dirty three but hadn’t heard the collaboration before, even though I had the tortoise and karate fishtanks eps. it’s a strong opener, lovely slow build. Love the Loscil track, and all it’s under current tension, I think monument builders is probably his best work to date.
Hot water work well to keep the movement growing in to Wave Pictures, which is a nice little indie ditty structure. I’ve never heard off the renderers - but like it a lot, I don’t think it’s just the new zealand connection that makes me think of batrider who are awesome. https://batrider.bandcamp.com/album/piles-of-lies
Great Smog track, I had seagull on my shortlist but hadn’t thought of this one.
My home is the Sea was so close to going on my mix, probably my favourite bonnie prince album after I see a darkness. Silver Jews, that’s a great pick, good water chorus there.
the Sophia track is great, lazy comparison but shellac vibe and reminds me of a Rumah Sakit track too. The other 2 I hadnt heard were wainwright which is a solid comical shanty and tarnation which isn’t really my bag, that’s not a criticism, I can just be a little sensitve to elements of country music despite liking the odd phophorescent track and artists like Bonnie Prince and Damian Jurado who occasionally go that way. Overall a great mix and thoroughly enjoyed it , The renderers and sophia are definite takeaway highlights for me and I will definitely check them out further.Thanks Prob
We definitely share a similar taste when it comes to lofi indie, only 4 artists I didn’t know on first glance, again a good thing, love the dino island sketch and the title and general theme and aesthetic too.
Fantastic opening track, I’d never heard of Amalgamated sons of rest before, which is quite a feat considering I see a darkness is probably in my top 10 albums of all time and I used to listen to Songs:Ohio a lot as well.
Haven’t listened to quasi in years but had Transmogrification and Sword of God, really good band, and a good track.
Don’t know Alela Diane, obvious comaprisons can be made but really strong voice and lovely track.
I still think the first tunng album is their best, love code breaker of that album. Hadn’t heard of listening centre, but good to hear some water, I included a sontag shogun track on mine for a similar vibe. Love early Why? output, I fell in love with the first Clouddead album when it first came out and loved the first 3 why albums, I think he’s at his best when there is some reflection, sadness, or anger mixed in there, Golden tickets put me off completely but this actually inspired me to listen to the Moh Llean and there is some nice stuff on there. As I said to Prob, my home is the sea nearly went on my mix, but I like this alternate live version too, hadn’t heard of 91plus either, nice instrumental to mix it up a bit, kinda reminded me of an old banco de gaia track crossed with some bonobo or something like that. Overall a really nice flow to it all, and thoroughly enjoyed it and all it’s warm indie feelings, I’m gonna have to purchase that amalgamated album. Thanks wowee
