You can hear this week’s show again here:
Continuing to play some new stoner and doom metal I’ve come across recently, especially Nebula and Monolord, inspired by the visit from Andy Valiant of Oak last week. I began the show with some wonderful psychedelicness from Portugal in the form of Astrodome.
Also celebrated the 30th anniversary of Seventh Son of a Seventh Son by Iron Maiden– a big influence on my musical journey.
It was also wonderful to discover lovely new post-rock with the likes of Good Weather For An Airstrike & Loud Exit– who continued the trend of wonderful song titles I enjoy – Dream Friend Dream Like a Resting Ship in the Night.
I finished the show with one of my favourite ever songs- December Hunting…. by Stars of The Lid. It has once again provided a wonderful background over the last week or so. I described how it’s music I enjoy through good times and bad. During bad times it takes some of the weight of some fragile and uncomfortable burdens.
