    I really like that, except ... I want the band's name to be about giving handjobs to AC/DC's first singer, and I'm annoyed that really I know it's probably just a tedious marijuana reference.

    I think with stoner doom the weed references are all just part of the aesthetic, and are not very serious.

    I was listening to Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard earlier. They're great too.

    Spandex A crazy bulbous punchbag of sound

    Smith & Mighty - Ashley Road Sessions 88-94

    Excellent album of unreleased tracks from the Bristol dub/house/breakbeat pioneers.

    Emika - Falling in Love With Sadness

    Emika has kept coming close to making an album I really love and this time I think she's done it. With a bit of production help from electro heavyweights The Exaltics she's made a lovely album of melancholy elecro-pop.

    Some squelchy bassline from Venz:



    And a collection of easy listening from Low Enthropy:

    The new Vessell album is brilliant in places. The other stuff might grow too - going it give it some time over the washing up

    I can't find anything on Slsk or Youtube to sample it directly, but Japanese noise-niks DMBQ have a new one out today with decent write-ups.

    Christ, it's pretty much time to start messaging you with our album of the year lists isn't it?

    I do like that acidcore tempo though and there are some dark bangers on there

    actually this is great all the way through.

    Yeah its a great tempo. just think the 90s stuff is so much more brutal and to the point. running those tr909s through guitar fx units and all.

    Almost. I'm havig a week off from even hinking about bloody lists for the moment though.

    Been a good year, after a couple of underwhelming ones, for me.

    This from April has just been brought to my attention - yank experimental folk music of the gut-punching variety.

    I'm on my first listen of this, and it's rather fantastic. Keeenly, with a triple e, is the name of the album, if you're looking for it.

    This one never turned up, did it...

    Just trawling the thread in advance of Belboid opening the book, and I realised I trailed Pigs x7's King of Cowards in advance but didn't post after it was released:



    They haven't exactly mellowed out yet.

    braindancer not for long

    New Workin Man Noise Unit is a belter...

    Scuzzy hardcore/punk/sludgey stoner/rock and roll.

    Voley Sign On You Crazy Diamond

    Great album. Loads of great moments but 'A66' is fucking brilliant. 'GNT' too. Really want to see them live before they start playing big venues. Only a matter of time, I would've thought.

    Bass player's crisp reviews on Twitter are worthy, too.
