-valis Pick(s) of the Week
In an effort to maintain the Summer Solstice compilation as the topmost post here I'm now three weeks behind on posting my Pick of the Week. Here now is remedy. The bands are worthy of your attention, imho.
For this week, July 10 - 16, 2012:
From Somerville, Massachusetts, The Ocular Audio Experiment , the work of Alex Pollock! Titled The Witch's Whispering Tomes (Part 1). An amazing piece of pure BJM-esque, (ca. late '90s,) hypnotism. Throughout the twelve tracks Alex maintains interest varying the shades within. I found it to be true to its aim. I think you will, too. Get it here ! (He's also just released Part 2. Same tracks but in a different style! Can't wait to wrap my Sennheisers 'round that! It's here )
For the week, July 3 - 9, 2012:
From Nevada City, California, The Soft Bombs have released their new album, Embrace The Light !
For the week of June 26 - July 2, 2012:
From Arcata, California, White Manna have just released their self-titled album on Holy Mountain !
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every Monday from 1 to 3 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
