I've owned tons of ambient albums, but this one is like a religious experience for me. Something about the driftiness, timelessness and deep melancholy of the drones – created mainly by guitar (presumably the Fender Jazzmaster that Jeff used in his ... See full review

Another disorienting and unique ritual(istic) dark ambient album from Cranioclast. Note that the album title is an anagram of the band's name.

I just found out singer Nicholas (Nick) Graham was the founder of Joe Boxer around the time this EP came out. It later grew to be a $100 million company, and he was friends with Robin Williams, etc.

There is none, just "Side A" and "Side B." Hopefully when Sub Pop puts out the deluxe "Winner Edition" remaster on CD someday, they'll include track titles. The content doesn't really lend itself to titles, though. As I wrote in my review on ... See full review
posted a review of Idaho - The Palms E.P.. 11 months ago
Do whatever you have to do to hear the heavy, slow, titanically soul-crushing masterpiece "You Are There," which makes most of Swans' and Alice In Chains' discographies obsolete. The anguished primal bellows near the end will put Idaho's later, more ... See full review
posted a review of Supercollider - Supercollider. 11 months ago
Minimalistic, electronically-enhanced post-pop songs in the vein of Brian Eno's "By This River" or perhaps some Hugo Largo, though the instrumentation is quite different from that of the latter. Definitely an acquired taste, and aimed at the patient, ... See full review

The Fu Manchu song is truly awesome, a cowbell lover's paradise of groovy stoner rock / R&B. Blindfold anyone and tell him / her this song was recorded in 1973 and you would get no protests. Normally I loathe this kind of genre recreation, but this cut ... See full review

The plaintive title track is one of the greatest songs of all time. Her voice breaks and strains in all the right ways. As the song titles indicate, this mini-LP is not exactly an upper, lyrics-wise, but it's not a self-loathing exercise either.

"TCR" is a short, choppy, poppy song with hit college radio potential. Not sure if it ever got lots of play. "Flex," on the other hand, is a powerful, meandering, 15-minute krautrock jam that can be quite scary at night. Impressive poles on one album. ... See full review

"Everything Seems Prescribed" brings a wickedly minimalistic funk to your midsection. Truly the ill sh*t. The rest of the EP is decent. Too bad this group never recorded a full-length.
