Today, is The Day of the Downloads!!!!! I documented the albums that I recently downloaded, where I found them and attached a stupid name to it (thus a new section of posts is born).
The first download is Aaron and the Burr’s, instrumental beach rock played fast. Very good, and available for free download on Bandcamp. Highly recommended.
Aaron and the Burrs post on SpaceRockMountain.
Here we have Burning Motherfuckers, a two piece out of Oslo Norway which I saw on weedtemple . Different, decent and definitely a new approach to the two piece format. Something like jangly, punk/ post-punk influenced desert rock. Pretty good.
Next is Damnation’s Rebel Souls, Polish death metal from 1996 full of blast beats and classic 1990’s death metal riffs from eastern Europe. Defiantly for the death metal fans. An obscure album that luckily for us, was posted by the people at GhostsofSaturn. Downloading music has been demonized, however here is music that would likely have never been heard by any of us had someone not uploaded it. This is such an obscure pressing that it and many others like it, would essentially be lost to history were it not in public cloud storage.
Also, from GhostsofSaturn we have Monlithe III. This is less than grand, more doom metal. Like a single 52 minute track… wow. Too much.
I’ve listened to the Aaron and the Burrs album at least a dozen times, that’s easily my favorite album of the week, and one of the best releases I’ve heard from this year. And Burning Motherfuckers I would label as the most creative and still listenable album I’ve heard this year.
Those are some of the blogs I look at and all three of them mentioned are consistent about posting quality music.
