It will genuinely be a short update this month, folks – I’m very stressed at the moment and have no time/energy to devote to anything in-depth. Writing has taken a backseat to the very real problem of finding somewhere new to live, and that stress is not conducive to creativity at all. I’m hopeful things will improve before the end of the year, but… let’s be realistic here!
Found some time to compile a playlist, however – a nice cross-section of my interests, I think! A chiptune opener by the fantastic Disasterpeace, followed by a couple of more laid-back tunes from new discovery Night Verses and the ever-reliable Ihsahn. After that it’s metal territory with sludge from 1782, an excellent Alice in Chains cover by Thou, an emotionally wraught track off Svalbard’s newest release and new music from the great Amiensus. Japanese folk metal from WagakkiBand serves as a bridge back to some more relaxed music – one of the themes I’ve heard the most from the great roguelike videogame Hades and a relaxing orchestral epilogue from Jóhann Jóhannson. I hope you enjoy!
All the best,
