Songs for characters. · 9:00pm Jun 7th, 2017

Heya readers,

I did a song post quite some time ago for the Wheel and the Butterfly, and have thought of a handful more based on characters who I tend to use a lot when I write.

Music SIG Likes #33 :: Rob Halford · 3:09am Dec 24th, 2016

What with it being (at time of writing) one day before Christmas, how about come classical Christmas hymns and carols arranged in heavy metal style by Rob Halford of Judas Priest fame?

Music SIG Likes #29 :: Red Sparowes · 3:30am Nov 17th, 2016

Some more of that yummy yummy post-metal/post-rock tasty goodness! Sparowes leans more towards "post-rock" than metal compared with Russian Circles and Pelican. It also shades in to prog-rock territory at times. Still, all in all they are an excellent instrumental band to listen to in the background.

Quite enjoyable to listen to while at work.

Music SIG Likes #46 :: DOROTHY · 4:32am May 9th, 2017

Some hard rock from California today.

DOROTHY has an interesting mix of classic, old-school heavy metal and bluesey rock style. Think "Black Sabbath" + "White Stripes". The lead singer, Dorothy Martin, Has (IMHO) an incredibly energetic and powerful voice that is perfect for this music.

A spot of Country Western + Country Gothic courtesy of my fellow coworkers on the production floor. I am not sure how to describe his music. My vocabulary is woefully lacking (any music buffs got any suggestions?). All I can say is that his music that I have heard sounds like what the picture below looks like (if that makes any sense).

Music SIG Likes #54 :: Nick Cave · 3:23am Jul 27th, 2017

Nick Cave and his band Bad Seeds is something that I have recently (re)discovered thanks to my new co-worker, "Shoe", on the production floor. Been around longer than I (and I will wager most people reading this) have been alive. Really intense and emotional post-punk and gothic rock. Features American Southern Gothic imagery and themes quite heavily.

A bit dark, but quite enjoyable nonetheless.

Music SIG Likes #38 :: Lincoln Durham · 3:10am Mar 1st, 2017

Lincoln Durham has an absolutely delicious fusion of blues and southern gothic with healthy helping of punk rhythms and alt-rock beats mixed in. Imagine if you will Brothter Dege mixed in with a grittier version of White Stripes.

He is also an impressive artist to see live (as are most one person bands).

The Call of Music, part 1. · 5:24pm Sep 19th, 2015

In the previous blog, i briefly mentioned two big influences, that of shadowrun, and the other, music. Music, is and always will be my choice of drug. Most of the love, came well, as a measure of solace. For many folks. A songs a song, and I get it it, even if I don't. Because my senses don't work like most peoples. I've been falsely labelled, misdiagnosed, and a variety of other things on that, but its, again, another topic for another day.

Music SIG Likes #40 :: Wovenhand · 5:56am Mar 25th, 2017

This was a delightful find that practically came out of nowhere for me. Very unique sound with a mixture of what Wikipedia describes as alt-country, neofolk/folk rock, and industrial(!), with a dash of gospel and Native American music. To my ears it sounds like the lyrical themes of traditional gospel, with the arrangement of alternative country (*not* the twangy, rhinestone-cowboy stuff!), and the sound of melodic doom metal (see Sinking Hands, Winter Shaker, Swedish Purse, and

Music SIG Likes #68 :: The Dead South · 1:32am Feb 25th, 2018

Some bluegrass-folk music courtesy of Canada this time around. Features blisteringly fast banjo (is there any other kind?) which counterpoints lead singer Nate Hilt's rather raspy voice quite well. Quite nice if you are into that sort of thing.

A rather nice selection of deliciously grungy, hard al-rock. Special thanks to Darkhanos for the suggestion!

Music SIG Likes #62 :: Rag'n'Bone Man · 2:41am Nov 5th, 2017

Some soul mixed with a dab of hip-hop this time around. Musically it consists of some very light hip-hop style beats and samples that primarily serve to highlight his incredible (IMHO) voice.

So much emotion! Just listen to Human and Skin below!

Sadly, the rest of the album does not quite have the same emotional weight as Skin and Human, but for a first studio album, it is quite excellent. Here is hoping for more!

This one is interesting (to me at least). Beats Antique bills itself as and "experimental world fusion and electronic music group. Basically this is just a posh way of saying "light electronic dance music with a distinctive Middle-Eastern flavour. (Middle-Eastern Dance Electronic Dance Music? MEDEDM? :derpytongue2: )

Music SIG Likes #9 :: Brother Dege · 3:10am Feb 29th, 2016

I learned about a new instrument recently: Dobro resonator guitar. It has a distinctive look ("guitar with a shield thingy on the front) a distincitve sound (about midway between an acoustic guitar and a banjo) and features prominently in many blues/bluegrass/country songs. Needless to say, it features prominently in Brother Dege's music what with the rhythmic blues/folk style with a smattering of mellow rock mixed in for taste.

Some delightful folk and bluegrass this time around courtesy of Poor Man's Poison. One of my brothers introduced me to them recently. I am not usually one for this type of music (a bit too much country), but they have certainly grown on me. Mandolin is one of those instruments I enjoy listening to (another is dobro), and Poor Man's Poison has it in spades.

Pirate Metal.

Pirate. Metal. Just take a moment to savour the delicious barminess.

Alsestorm is an interesting combination of power metal with folk metal elements mixed in all wrapped in bombastic pirate-themed theatrics. Never before did I imagine I would ever utter the phrase "heavy-metal accordion".

Something new, apropos of nothing: some blog posts wherein I act my age and slap a bunch of self-indulgent stuff various musical bits and bobs I enjoy listening to up on a public blog post.

At the very least, I figure who reads this may (possibly) discover something new and exciting, or (more likely) have something to laugh at and poke with sticks.
