as usual i'm about three years behind internet trends and have finally started using it.
;-) Fuck alcxxk!
Great drone albums - haven't really looked around bandcamp otherwise.
It hasn't arrived yet but those taster tracks are very exciting
or Elite Gymmastics
A personal favourite http://earthdance.bandcamp.com/album/26000
and here`s a cracking album for you Shoegaze/Indie lot http://relayband.bandcamp.com/album/still-point-of-turning
Both very good. Really enjoying some of the other recommendations, namely Relay, Rough Fields and Foreign Fields, so will purchase those at some point.
They're sort of a buzzband in the US at the moment but I found out about them as they're friends of Trail of Dead, so got this e.p. and there's some wonderfully agrressive shoegaze-Lush-on-steroids stuff going on, the song Conductor gets played at least three times over when it comes on, it's excellent
I got the subsequent albums and apart from the odd song there's nothing as good as on offer here, if anything the album they put out last year is very, VERY Sonic Youth, not a bad thing but I missed the poppiness of this e.p.
ALSO, fuck alc**k x2! THIS is your album of the year right here:
I agree with your assessment of the EP and Phantoms - both are worth having. They're currently finishing up a new album so I guess we'll find out which direction they'll pursue.
these guys posted an ad for a singer on here and i checked it out and it's really awesome. espers/pentangle-esque dark folk kinda stuff.
fast, thrashy pop-punk stuff. Proper guitars and everything.
really liking this Palomica LP at the moment
nice indiepop w/ a few hazy field recordings and stuff like that in there. it's lovely
got every album they've put out on it.
Desperate man blues is a really good compilation of early blues stuff
They've got a whole album of throat singing, 4 albums chronicling double bass in early american music, 4 albums of early spiritual music and collections of morrocan 45s. Really great and so much to listen to.
on a more important one, it's brilliant.
there are some great videos of him playing these songs on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHqeZwyYeRo
Discovered this guy on Bandcamp. Electronic, shoegazey, downtempo sort of stuff. He's since taken a couple of his records off there but you can find it on Spotify. Here's the song that got me hooked http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jBoHiauobk
It just gets better every time I play it. The greatest cult American guitar record of the 90's to be made in the 21st century. Yup.
Pretty Bauhaus-ian and great with it
and has Adebisi Shank's guitarist on drums:
Also everything on here: http://richtercollective.bandcamp.com/
but this EP by Lucy Claire is well nice:
Also, in a non jaggy way, I was enjoying this old Christ. EP on his bandcamp the other day:
Also, see Arrange:
Maybe this is the right place to talk about it.
I've just released a compilation of the best pop tunes from unknown bands found on Bandcamp these last 6 months called "Life is a Minestrone, Volume 1".
