Coma

If you are very patient with or, better yet, fond of ambient and drone music, you may be interested in my new album-length track Coma, which I have just posted to my Bandcamp page.

If you don't have a taste for that sort of music, please don't listen to it, as I don't want you to hate me.

Downloading it right now.

Check out my friend Dave's project:

Only got a chance to check out the first half since I had to open up the place, but it reminded me of mid-to-latter day Ulver, minus their propensity to glitch everything. I dig it, but better experienced via the headphone treatment at home.

Thanks to both of you!

Charles, my computer and your friend's site aren't interacting happily at the moment but I will definitely check it out when I can--thanks.

Randal--I'm actually not familiar with Ulver but a quick look at their rateyourmusic page makes them seem definitely worth a checking-out. Any particular place to start? Thanks for the tip and the nicewords, too.

Hmm, going by your track, I would avoid their first three albums as they're mostly raging, old school black metal. Unless you're feeling extra nihilistic that day. :)

Perdition City is mostly a mix of ambient, trip-hoppy stuff, which usually isn't my thing, but for some reason I enjoy it. The A Quick Fix of Melancholy EP is worthwhile as is the Blood Inside album.

Thanks again. I usually don't get much out of straight up black metal, but I'm not opposed to the concept. I'll check 'em out.

Dave's project (Audio and the Earthling) is pretty funny, he's played bluegrass-oriented stuff for a while and the newer project is radically different. It's a semi-comic modern take on the revival of 70s disco/80s dance music.

I listened to Coma and liked it. I can hang with drone stuff when in the mood. Often it makes me want to create photographic slide shows that fit the feel of the music... is that weird?

Thanks Charles! And I would not call that weird.
