    Duality Duality
    Neurosis is the band I've probably seen live more than any other (if I have any permanent hearing damage, I blame it squarely on them). For almost the band's entire long lifespan, they've had this very fertile side project, Tribes of Neurot, which creates captivating ambient/experimental music, often based on the sounds, samples, and effects used in Neurosis songs. This music is totally different from Neurosis, but equally compelling.

    Chiusella's Waters Chiusella's Waters
    LOVE. This gorgeous album evokes black metal's anthemic aspect over its more brutal side. As bracing and enlivening as a gust of wind on a mountantop; it touches me so deeply, as if awakening something inside of me that was too long deadened and deaf. There is music here that will leave you gaping in amazement of its rightness, of its pure, excruciating beauty.

    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Lore Lore
    This is a feast of an album, which rewards repeated and intent listening. It is the best thing I have heard this year. It takes the listener on a vivid journey while supplying tremendous energy, intensity, and joy. Perfect vocals that seem to arrive from the mid-distance (ala Scott Kelley of Neurosis), and rich, sonorous riffs, so nearly sub-sonic they make you feel like you're floating. Musicianship, composition, recording quality are all stellar; clearly a great labor of love. Gratitude.
  7. Spires Burn/Release

    Release Release
    After thoroughly rocking out repeatedly to "Lore," this band's incredible full length album (is it possible to wear out an Mp3?), I was eager to hear more, much more Elder. This EP does not disappoint -- only two songs, but each one is a sumptuous 10 minute voyage that you'll never want to end.
  8. Sole Creation
    by Kongh
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Tamed Brute Tamed Brute
    GREAT album. Just close your eyes and let the roar of protracted minor chords wash over you like an unholy benediction. One of the vocal styles in use here is not typically my thing -- but I found in this case it only required the tiniest brain nudge to totally dig them.
  9. Elder Giants
    by Sun Worship
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    The Absolute is Becoming The Absolute is Becoming
    This summer has been way too hot here, and I was in dire need of a bone-chilling icy arctic wind. So I bought this album. Ahhhhh.... much better.

    A weather front was stalled out in the Pacific--like a lonely person, lost in thought, oblivious of time. A weather front was stalled out in the Pacific--like a lonely person, lost in thought, oblivious of time.
    An impressive solo project of dreamlike instrumental metal/rock. The heavy passages are sublime.

    by Celeste
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Ces belles de reve aux verres embues Ces belles de reve aux verres embues
    Listened for exactly 15 seconds and hit "Buy." Black metal meets hardcore meets your ears in a dark alley late at night and guess who's going to win? (Hint: not you). Plus slow numbers that sound like Godflesh on a very, very bad day. Which means a very very good day for US! This hit the nail right on the head. Thanks, for the tip, Valdemar! You still know me so well after all these years...

    by Toundra
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Medusa Medusa
    Some achingly beautiful stuff here! The dissonant chords on "Medusa" are so good that it hurts. I can't listen to this album without playing that song about four or five times. Toundra is for me reminiscent of "3rd and the Mortal," without the vocals.
  13. (II)
    by Toundra
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Zanzíbar Zanzíbar
    According to personality researchers, lovers of metal and lovers of classical music have the most in common with each other. That makes sense to me when I hear this band: there is a searching quality in the music, a love of beauty, depth, and emotion..And plenty of heartfelt heavy riffs. Not for superficial listeners -- this music has substance!
  14. Progenitor
    by DVNE
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    When Planets Die When Planets Die
    This album has the comfortable feeling of an album you've already owned and loved for years on the first listen. And yet that is not for lack of originality -- got to love the sci-fi sound effects, and the background vocals on "Red Giant" that sound like an angelic chorus abducted from a vintage Disney movie and forced to sing in Hades!
  15. Vespers for a New Dark Age
    by Missy Mazzoli, Victoire, Glenn Kotche, Lorna Dune
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Vespers for a New Dark Age: Postlude Vespers for a New Dark Age: Postlude
    The clarion angelic tones of a neo-Hildegard von Bingen, emitting from the stillest subterranean sewer-chapel of darkest Brooklyn. Ancient music channeled by Experimental.
  16. Being Human Being
    by Erik Truffaz & Murcof
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Warhole Warhole
    Murcof creates spellbinding ambient electronic music that seems to emit from remote recesses of the chthonian abyss. It's very dark music; contemplative, but with a pulse. I would describe it as maximalist, not minimalist: it's full of textures and layers and tensions and subtleties. And here, richly embellished with trumpet from Erik Truffaz.
  17. EP01
    by Murcof x Vanessa Wagner
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Erik Satie - Gnossienne 3 (Murcof Version) Erik Satie - Gnossienne 3 (Murcof Version)
    Murcof is one of my favorite electronic musicians of all time; his album Martes (available on BC under the artist's listing) is probably in my alltime top 10. Here he casts his signature mysterious gloom over Erik Satie -- what's not to love? Great split EP with Vanessa Wagner.
  18. La Sangre Iluminada
    by Murcof
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Hugo 1 Hugo 1
    The chilling, gripping beauty of this album casts a rapturous spell. By turns spooky and melacholy, as Murcof works his dependably evocative ambient magic...It's one of his very best. Thank you Architect for this wonderful gift, which by chance arrived a week after my birthday -- I'm thrilled, grateful, and very touched! :)
  19. A Blessed Unrest

    Leafy Sea Dragon Nursery* Leafy Sea Dragon Nursery*
    Warning: Haunted mp3s! Downloading and listening to this album will release a phantasm into your abode. She will appear in your dreams, whisper to you from behind your shoulder when you are home alone at night, and eventually, crawl inside your heart, which she will never leave.
  20. Into The Trees
    by Zoe Keating
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Escape Artist Escape Artist
    Haunting, brilliant, beautiful. Don't be fooled by the "quietness." This is music with immense intensity and depth. I would never treat it as background music -- it deserves intent listening. "Hello Night" even made me cry the other day. Amazing, original music (although "Flying and Flocking" could have been written by John Cage, which I mean as a compliment!). Highest recommendations.
  21. The Wishbook Singles
    by Edison Woods
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    The Gardener The Gardener
    Edison Woods is among of my favorite musical acts of all time. I'm glad that they're finally on Bandcamp so that I can pick up whatever I missed the first time around, and gift this music to friends. Please check it out, and be mesmerized by Julia Frodahl's ethereal voice and the profoundly beautiful, touching music.

  22. Ghost Against Ghost-Checkpoint Charlie EP
    by Ghost Against Ghost
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Checkpoint Charlie, Pt. 1 Checkpoint Charlie, Pt. 1
    This makes me realize how irresponsibly we all throw around the word "epic." No, THIS is epic. We are talking 46-piece orchestra here. Track 1 is a solo flight in your private plane over glaciered peaks; track 2 is a slow murky drop into the Mariana trench, reminiscent of Krzysztof Penderecki. Up or down, take your pick and you won't be dissappointed.
  23. Shadows of the sun
    by Ulver
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Vigil Vigil
    As Black Metal's Byronic titans, who both defined and transformed that genre, Ulver's place in history is well-secured. Rather than resting on laurels, however, they've continued to surprise and enchant for nearly two decades since, with offerings in manifold musical styles. With the common denominator being Ulver, you can expect brooding beauty and creativity to spare. Shadows of the Sun, despite the title, seems nighttime music to me: an album for contemplation, perhaps with a nice red wine.
  24. The Serpent and the Dove
    by In Gowan Ring
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Thousands of Bees Thousands of Bees
    When you're recovering from advanced adrenal fatigue, the tiniest daily vicissitudes provoke an agony of stress, flooding your system with adrenaline and whatever other toxic chemicals are on hand. The antidote: this album. B'ee's amber voice and the delicate instrumentation provide a balm for raw, abraded nerves, whatever their cause. Medicinal music; music which sometimes seems to have been created in a different, nicer world than ours... which perhaps is the point.
  25. Frost and Furrow
    by Julia Kent
    Frost and Furrow Frost and Furrow
    This beautiful melancholy music reminds me of early Raison d'Etre, with a real cello.
  26. Theatre Is Evil
    by Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Want It Back Want It Back
    These songs will literally keep you up at night, they will get into your head and not let you rest. Palmer is a genius lyricist, combining the mundane, profane, and profound with whiplash-inducing dexterity. Who else could sing, "I see London, I see France," and have it break your heart?
  27. Who Killed Amanda Palmer
    by Amanda Palmer
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Runs in the Family Runs in the Family
    Palmer's first career was busking as a living statue: being the stillness in the center of the mayhem, making a living off of singular connections forged in total silence. We're all lucky the lady found her voice, and a beautiful, powerful sound to go with it. But there's moments when she still inhabits that profound stillness, and at those times, it feels like she's singing to you and you alone.
  28. Portraits
    by Maribou State
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Rituals Rituals
    Shimmering and urbane electronic tracks with a note of moodiness pleasantly tarnishing the polish.
  29. A Color Map of the Sun
    by Pretty Lights
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Let's Get Busy Let's Get Busy
    Pretty Lights is a talented electro composer mixing jazzy vintage sounds with modern beats. I want to say Moby remixed by Amon Tobin, though the music doesn't sound at all anachronistic. Tons of originality here, while remaining easy on the ears.

  31. Blue Surface of the True Love
    by RUKH
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Hey U! Hey U!
    Dirty, bluesy psychedelic rock. Female vocalist has a great sexy style and a russian accent. The guitars remind me of old goth rock ala Fields of the Nephilim. Well worth a listen!
  32. Kutiman (Digital/CD)
    by Kutiman
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    No Reason For You No Reason For You
    This starts off sounding like a hazy july afternoon by the pool, and quickly descends into deeper, darker territory. Great hybrid funk/psychedelic rock/jazz. Some tracks with a female vocalist make me imagine if Portishead had been a band from the '70s. This is a perfect summer album.
