i'm currently listening to Solar Bridge & i'm digging the hell out of it, this is next:
Yeah, Solar Bridge
is definitely dope, I have fallen asleep to that many of time as of late.
this thread gives me a headache
most of the artists on here aren't drone
most of them would fit better in the ambient thread
some of them (like emeralds, growing, and a lot on ratkings list) I wouldn't consider ambient or drone in general
drone also DOES consider bands like boris and instrumental drone
and if I made a giant list of artists I love no one would truly care
I think I just quit mumblings
I've never heard eternal tapestry
Robedoor, kinda like growing and emeralds, certainly has stuff I would consider drone (their split with Pocohaunted comes to mind)
Most of the stuff around like that reminds me more of noise than anything.
I have a pretty strict definition of drone though
and I definitely don't consider Fennesz or Tim Hecker drone
I guess that's the thing, for me there's lots of "noise" that I would say is drone, and lots of drone I would call "noise." Although, I feel my definition is fairly strict as well here. There is just this certain aesthetic I look for, that many of those have and share. If you wanna be super picky in this situation though (as it seems you are) then I guess My Cat Is An Alien, Daniel Menche, and Bee Mask are really the only ones I listed that are "truly" drone. And then maybe not even Bee Mask and My Cat Is An Alien (except in the case of one of the splits with Steven R. Smith's group Thuja).
I also strongly disagree with the Black Dice statement, regarding all these other artists (and noise in general) that's almost like calling them "the kings of noise" which despite the fact that I like Beaches and Canyons
, I find that borderline offensive. I think they are strongly overrated, not as innovative as people might think (just happened to gain popularity for some outrageous reason). But I guess the statement above "I think."
Really says it all. That is precisely all it is. Just what I think. I guess if you
made a list of artists you
(being no one) might not truly care. But that'd be just what I
P.S. Not trying to be a dick. I probably would actually like a lot of them. You like hella good shit, I am just sayin' what I think. Also, nice to see you posting. I don't read or post much, so I have yet to see such from you, but it's good you're back!
