Episode 122 – Halloween Special

10/28/2020
Field recordings of an autopsy, a rotting corpse, and an electric chair execution, as well as cult leader monologs, trance babblings, lots of deep dark ambient, and a truly memorable ending.

Duration:02:09:38

Episode 121

8/13/2020
Not much metal in this one. I highly recommend checking out Cinder Well's album in full. Ends with 30+ minutes of absolute mayhem while Paul Giamatti reads A Scanner Darkly.

Duration:02:02:40

Episode 120

8/6/2020
This is a pretty heavy & dark episode with tons of collaging (there's 4 songs going at once for part of "Blood Rite") but ends on a light note with some simultaneous Jobin/Atkinson action and a couple 80s New Age dreams.

Duration:01:58:18

Episode 119

7/30/2020
Got some excellent new metal, some excellent new weird shit, new Shirley Collins (!!!), Korean religious rituals, a poem about Harriet Tubman, strange 70s spoken word stuff, an excerpt from Annie Jacobsen's book Surprise, Kill, Vanish (which sounds especially good paired with both Christopher Elmore & Sunrot), and plenty more.

Duration:01:57:48

Episode 118

7/22/2020
It's been a long time since I've been as obsessed with a record as I am with Lankum's The Livelong Day from last year. I just found out about it thanks to this Shirley Collins interview (they're her new favorite band too). I've listened to nothing but that record all day every day for the past week. There's lots of other great stuff here too but there's a reason I bookended the episode with two tracks from The Livelong Day.

Duration:02:03:55

Episode 117

7/15/2020
Definitely grab that Overgrow To Overthrow benefit compilation from Bindrune. All proceeds go to Black Lives Matter and Life After Hate. It has 31 tracks including Thou, Inexorum, Vukari, Obsequiae, Falls Of Rauros, Cloud Rat, Aerial Ruin, Woe, Krieg, Dawn Ray'd, Krallice, and so many more incredible artists.

Duration:02:05:24

Episode 116

7/6/2020
The 3 metal songs are from 3 of the best metal records this year. The AWE track is from the upcoming final AWE record. Thankfully AW will still be active on his own. Backxwash is some phenomenal new furious horrorcore that I didn't know I needed. And I am way psyched that there's not one but TWO new Revolutionary Army records.

Duration:02:02:26

Episode 115

6/30/2020
Goddamn this world is fucked. For countless reasons, I've been absent from this site and my A Thick Mist radio show. I'm rusty. Hardly experimenting here. Nothing too weird. The main difference though is there's no talk breaks.

Duration:02:12:18

Episode 114

3/30/2020
This episode is pretty cool with new Jeremy Bible (!!!!), the debut from Apologist, some classic Rev. Gary Davis, Aurora Borealis recordings, Indian chants, Tolowa dances, and some new killer doom out of Boston by Sea.

Duration:02:05:44

Episode 113

2/28/2020
Did you know there's a song with lyrics written/sung in Black Speech, the language spoken by the Nazgûl in Lord of the Rings? Because that's fucking awesome. Also, the short-lived closing piece of martial industrial alongside Native American chants is pretty excellent imo.

Duration:01:59:16

Episode 112

2/25/2020
New Panopticon, old Fred McDowell, Native American chants, new Post Scriptvm, old La Monte Young, talking without a larynx, strange locked grooves, strange vocalizations, old fado, old Oliveros/Dempster drone, and all sorts of other cool shit.

Duration:02:04:08

Episode 111

2/14/2020
New Eluvium, new Turk Dietrich & Duane Pitre collab (First Tone), new Mamiffer, new Tim Macuga (HANL) project (Consumer), new age piano, Holocaust despair, Russian chorus, and Gullah sermons.

Duration:02:01:49

Episode 110 – Top Metal Records Of 2019

1/31/2020
I played a bunch of my favorite metal records. The full Top 27 list is here, so consider this episode a 2-hour highlight reel.

Duration:02:02:45

Episode 109 – Top Drone Records Of 2019

1/29/2020
I played a bunch of my favorite drone records. The full Top 27 list is here, so consider this episode a 2-hour highlight reel.

Duration:02:08:27

Episode 108

12/19/2019
Lots of long songs and maybe the first time ever there's no American folk/blues to be found. Even so, there's Japanese flutes, génocidaire trial recordings, Indian ragas, nondescript LSD instructions, Finnish doom, Italian dark ambient, and readings from the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

Duration:02:01:23

Episode 107

12/10/2019
Some especially nice pairings in this episode, including RST's drone & Haitian ritual music, Curran's Canti Illuminati alongside some Indian ragas, and Truman Capote reading over Primitive Man's dark ambient doom.

Duration:02:00:00

Episode 106

11/25/2019
Piano-driven funeral doom, an instrumental Julee Cruise song, my man Nimrod, Joik songs, UFO reports, and Poe stories.

Duration:02:03:22

Episode 105

11/18/2019
Faith Coloccia (Mára) is a perfect music creator.

Duration:02:03:28

Episode 104

10/21/2019
New Mizmor! Hum reissue! New Impavida! Claire M. Singer reissue! A tuba/drum duo I'd never heard of before!

Duration:01:59:58

Episode 103

10/18/2019
I can't believe I haven't seen anyone mention the new Il'Ithil record, it's Blake Green's (Wolvserpent) solo project which I'd never heard of before. It's incredible. Also, I am so so in love with both Sarah Gunning's and Nimrod Workman's voices. Workman's song here is just pure despair and it pours out of every word.
