yeah dude Emeralds are the shit. download the album What Happened. The song "Living Room" is beautiful


already did that.
seriously, i've even ordered a copy of Solar Bridge, which i'm waiting for in the mail, and i'm waiting for them to release Emeralds on CD, which they should soon. They said it "will be out by the time the snow is falling" (I hate it when bands are ambiguous like that)


I absolutely love Solar Bridge. 2 of the best songs imo.


la monte young is the droniest motherfucker out there

Any of you guys ever heard Kevin Drumm? I just stumbled across him and this album Imperial Distortion is sounding really cool so far.

LIMITED RE-PRESS!!! Very occasionally a record comes along that we just don't want to review, a record so wondrous that words just seem to fall short. Since we have an urge to persuade anyone who crosses our path to hear 'Imperial Distortion', though, perhaps it's worth a shot nonetheless. Dominick Fernow's Hospital imprint has long impressed us with its output, but never before have we heard anything quite like 'Imperial Distortion' slip out of its ornate iron gates. Those of you in the know will already be aware of the label's noise-laden psychosexual tendencies, and those of you familiar with Kevin Drumm will no doubt be expecting a harsh onslaught of sound to scare your loved ones, but think again. Mego's genre-defining 'Sheer Hellish Miasma' might have set Drumm up as America's premier exponent of grinding noise, but 'Imperial Distortion' is a very different beast indeed and confirms that Drumm is simply one of the most important figures in the American avant garde. A bumper two CDs of music, this is to my mind the post millennial answer to Aphex Twin's seminal 'Selected Ambient Works II'. Where Richard D. James created a floating world hooked into his lucid dreams (or so he led us to believe), Drumm takes us into the darkest recesses of a broken world, somewhere deep beneath the sea with bombs and guns tearing flesh and concrete overhead. The album is something of an escape; the subtle oscillations and blissful tones thick with guilt and pregnant with disdain for a palsied society, and on headphones leave you totally paralysed. Comparable to the early electronic experiments of French composer Eliane Radigue or the BBC Radiophonic Workshop if they ditched the sci-fi for torture porn, there is a deep and rarely witnessed knowledge of the medium on show here. Drumm is no newcomer to the scene and isn't jumping on or off any bandwagon, rather this is a totally timeless collection of work. If you really need proof check 'Romantic Sores', maybe the softest moment on the album, a track which builds from subtle pad-work into haunting and devastatingly beautiful synthesized notes which phase and pan assuredly, dragging you into a blurry, confused world. At first listen it sounds deceptively simple but each second is painstakingly constructed and the more you play these tracks the more you become drawn into Drumm's imagination, never to return. Like Stephan Mathieu's 'Radioland' or The Caretaker's 'Persistent Repetition of Phrases' earlier this year, 'Imperial Distortion' seems to have slipped out from nowhere and captured our hearts. It is a record that is bound to be fighting for the top spot in many an end-of-year chart, and to put it bluntly you just need to experience it. Highest possible recommendation "Imperial Distortion" really is quite a find.

yeah, dude is super awesome. I actually picked up Imperial Distortion (oddly enough), Imperial Horizon, and Sheer Hellish Miasma the other day on CD. They were used and my friend that works there hooked me up, 3 for the price of 2. Dude is awesome for sure... God, I need to stop buying music. Such a money sink this obsession is becoming.

the best drony music has never been classified as 'DRONE'

for evidence dig into some 60's psychedelia....obviously not the mainstream psychedelic bands you are used to listening to because we know that drony music never really has commercial appeal

based on my last statement its obvious i've neve heard a 'drone' band i've liked or at least have never heard a good band that lies in this genre



but i've still been messing with 'drones' on my MPD32...basically i found a setup that includes digital emulations of Jimi Hendrix equipment(i've been using the wah-wah pedal, fuzzboxes, octiva, & univibe pedals along with an amazing Delay plugin(freeware unlike the Hendrix plugins) that emulates real feedback(it is partly random but mostly controllable


so what i've been doing is feeding good vst instruments i copped like Hammond Organs and Minimoogs through all this distortion that i am controling with the knobs and pads on my MPD



anyone interested in hearing this shit? its digital but it also sounds like real guitar feedback and also a bit like a DJ scraching...sometimes i program a 2 bar drum loop that is hooked up with all the noise with a peak controllor....so there is a bit of a trance influence as well


Drony Techno....i guess that has what i've been jamming out lately


are there bands that resemble this genre i just labled this week's creation as?

if so let me know...also let me know if you want to hear this shit i'm talkin about

Axolotl's Of Bonds in General is sort of like that to a degree

its got some pretty tight tribal drums going throughout the whole recording

check out Emeralds while you're at it as well

smoke some weed and then pop one of those on and go to sleep to it

shit is the best

downloading Axolotl's Of Bonds in General right now....i've got some digity dank that i'm going to smoke tonight so i'll probalby get around to listening to this


i'm listening to the Emeralds right now and i'm not really impressed...i probably would have liked this when i was in high school and listened to epitaph and fat wreck bands(not to say that this is bad)...these guys are more talented than such bands and aren't really 'punk rock' but i just don't feel that this sounds like 'drone' or what i was was describing

i'll let you know when i listen to the album i am downloading...i'll also let you know once i upload the stuff i've been doing
