MICHAEL CAMERON (FORMER LOS ANGELES) /// FIRST FULL TRACK FROM SOLO ALBUM DROPPED

So fucking good, there’s no info about this record yet or what label this is going to drop on, but hope it can live up to the sound of this first track, like Nicolas Jaar  getting his face sucked off by Mogwai, was hoping we’d get another Los Angeles record but this shit is right up there with their best.

SITEMAStERS BEST ALBUMS OF 2017 LIST

sitemasters faves 2017

YOU FUCKERS FOR SOME REASON MAKE THIS THE MOST POPULAR POST OF THE YEAR INCENTIVIZING ME TO JACK OFF TO MY OWN EGO AGAIN AND AGAIN. I’M SHOCKED ANY OF YOU ARE STILL READING THIS WELL INTO YOUR MINI-VAN BUYING AGE. I’LL KEEP THIS SHORT AND FUCKING VERY SWEET THIS YEAR. DOES MUSIC MATTER ANYMORE? I WOULD SAY MOST KIDS DO NOT GIVE A VERY SWEET FUCK ABOUT MUSIC ANYMORE – HAVE NO CLUE HOW IT USED TO WORK – DO NOT GIVE TWO FUCKS ABOUT RIPPING IT OFF FROM OTHER ARTISTS DIRECTLY WITHOUT APOLOGY WHILE TAKING THEIR ALBUM COVER SHOT IN FROM OF A POSTER FROM THE ARTIST THEY ARE RIPPING OFF. IF YOU CALL THEM OUT ON IT THEY CRY NO FAIR – MUSIC IS NOT A GENTLE WORLD – MUSIC IS THE FUCKING WILD WEST – THAT IS WHAT ENABLES YOU TO RIP OFF ALL OF THE SHIT YOU DO KIDDOS – IT ALSO ALLOWS COWBOYS LIKE ME TO COME ALONG AND FUCK YOUR SHIT UP. PEOPLE TELL ME BEING MEAN IS DEAD – I HAVE A SHRINE TO MEANNESS I’VE ERECTED HERE AND FOR SOME REASON IT STILL STANDS AFTER YOU’VE DELETED MANY OF YOUR BANDS FROM THE FACE OF THE INTERNET. WHAT IS IT WITH THIS DESIRE TO DELETE BANDS – IF YOU GO THROUGH THE CATALOG – I CAN’T FUCKING TELL YOU HOW MANY AMAZING BANDS HAVE DELTED THEMSELVES OUT OF EXISTENCE. IT WOULD FUCKING BLOW YOU MIND WHAT YOU CAN NO LONGER GET ANY FUCKING WHERE – POOF – 100% FUCKING GONE. EVEN AFTER I’M DEAD I WILL PAY ANOTHER BITCH AND ANOTHER BITCH AND ANOTHER BITCH TO KEEP THIS SHIT GOING AND MAINTAIN THE RELEVANCE AS LONG AS LIGHT CASTS ITSELF DOWN UPON THE BLOGOSPHERE.

SLOWDIVE – SLOWDIVE 

This is the fucking number 1. It’s arguably their best album in many ways, I know a lot of you will say that’s bullshit, but it’s like fucking crack, you play it all the way through and you have to listen to this shit again immediately afterward. I love all of their shit, masterpieces across the board, but this wins for me, at least all of 2017.

BLANCK MASS – WORLD EATER

You would not believe the shit that I have to put up with every day, got some crazy fuckers living in a flop house. This album is how I keep people out of the fucking living room where I sleep.

Lusine

LUSINE – SENSORIMOTOR

When I make these lists it shows me how far off of what I hoped would happen has taken me, I just surrender to this shit and hope to dissipate someday.

GEOTIC – ABYSMA

After life has punched you in the face enough times, you learn how to enjoy it, and maybe shit wasn’t that bad after all.

NIGHT SINS – DANCING CHROME

Sometimes I feel like you can select your own ending like a choose your own adventure book, and other times I feel like Saturn keeps making shit choices for me. Until I shut that shit off.

BJORK – UTOPIA

I’m not even sure I still enjoy listening to Bjork anymore, and I could just be putting this up here out of habit. This is either one of the best things she’s put out or I’ve fucking popped a gasket.

DRAB MAJESTY – THE DEMONSTRATION

Of course this shit is on here, it’s almost a parody of what IVIYH has become. AM I A METAPHOR FOR THIS MUSIC OR IS IT A METAPHOR FOR ME?

TUXEDO GLEAM – SUBTLETIES

Reminds me of simpler times, drinking simpler times beer from Trader Joes, another life, a better life, a greener life, smoking green, hazing myself into a haze of dark dancers.

COM TRUISE – ITERATION

This could have maybe been number one, or maybe it deserves the last spot on this list.

Coachella 2018 Lineup Looks Amazing!!!

coachellalineup2018

I’m really glad they were able to turn it around this year at Coachella, they did a great job of providing a balanced 2018 lineup that will appeal to people who really care about music, and more importantly art. This could have turned into a shitty corporate mainstream shit-fest, as all indicators have shown that it was going to bottom out, as each successive year lineups have been drug down increasingly by artists who are propped up by a corporate elite view of music, but this lineup literally silences all shit-talkers and flips a giant middle finger at fan-boy critics who said this festival was over years ago. I honestly can’t wait to go, buy a $6 churro, an $8 glass of lemon-scented sugar water and warm my hands around giant dumpster fire, I wonder if they are going to just set up one massive dumpster, or if there will be different sized dumpsters set up where each stage used to be. Anyway, I think I’m going to buy one of their fancy $2000 tents this year.

Rumor Alert!: The massive dumpster is going to bring out a ton of surprise guests including a hologram of Hillary Clinton.

A Thousand Hours /// New Album /// SLEEP

Screen Shot 2017-08-15 at 6.05.04 AM

A lot of people who write me ask questions that I don’t always feel comfortable answering, questions about mental illness, about the inconsistency of the blog posts. Most seem to realize when the posts stop I’ve gone off the deep end, and feel like I’ve painted myself into a corner and can’t get out of it. No one ever gives you the advice you need to hear which is walk on the paint to get the fuck out of the corner, most people just try to tell you how to adjust to being in the corner, and that sounds like bullshit when you’re fucking stuck there. I don’t think I’m anyone who should be answering your questions or try to make you feel better about mental illness, I feel like mine goes completely under the radar until shit hits the fan and people see that my actions don’t make sense or start making them uncomfortable.

When I listen to music I try to understand the intent or the overall purpose. Many just want to entertain, and that’s fine, music is a beautiful and enjoyable thing. A lot of the originators of specific sounds within the world of dark music were extremely mentally ill, and you end up with people who want to live in an aesthetic that’s not entirely natural to them, then you see motherfuckers who you can’t imagine being able to function in any other way shape or form other than the unhealthy world which they created and plays into our depraved voyeuristic appetites. I feel my personality melting away and I don’t know if there’s a lot left that allows me to connect with anyone in any sort of meaningful way. I don’t mean this as a stab to anyone I know, or my helper bitches, I just am disintegrating in many ways.

What does any of this have to do with this album, absolutely noting, this record is really fucking good, sounds like a lot of hard work went into it, really great fucking melodies, nice guest spot by Sister Calypso on the album opener Shipwreck, great fucking voice for this. Lot of other wonderful moments I’m too fucking submerged into a substance that approximates our atmosphere but won’t allow me to even move in any way but what it wants to say another word.

You should buy their shit so they can keep making shit for you to enjoy:

https://onethousandhours.bandcamp.com/album/sleep

A THOUSAND HOURS YT MIX

 

Here’s what their thing says:

A Thousand Hours release their second album “Sleep,” July 22. The album finds the northern collective further refining their 4AD infused ethereal style with tracks fuller and far more atmospheric than their first release “Endless Grey.” The music, a mix of dreampop, shoegaze, post-punk and even darkwave styles, blends seamlessly awash with reverb and drifting at a slow pace, evoking multiple colors over a dusky cold sky.
“We aren’t a band per se,” says song arranger and writer Red Collier. “We very much take our cue from This Mortal Coil and rely on a large cast of characters to assemble a large album collage. This album is far grander in scope and styling than out first one, which lends it a wide variant in sound.”
With over 12 contributors to the album, including members of the Fawns of Love, Friends of Alice Ivy and the Beremy Jets, it would be apropos to call A Thousand Hours a collective moreso than a band. This collective however does more than enshroud themselves in the sound of dream pop past, they have made it all their own.

DILLY DALLY /// CRIM3S REMIX /// HF AF

460340_393063374052958_1395896243_o

SO FUCKING SAVAGE, I can’t believe that CRIM3S returned to us in the form of us this remix and I was fucking blacking out for the entire fall. FUCKKKKKKKK. This is as beast as they come, and show there is still a damn sight more than a drop of fucking power left in this duo that could fucking melt the paint off of your fucking walls. Man do I miss fucking 2011 and 2012, I knew we had shit good and it wasn’t going to last, but fuck it was a true renaissance, and the martyred saints are fucking corpsed all the fuck over the alter that is IVIYH, take a trip down memory lane and click on some 2012 shit before it’s gone forever, many of these artists are deleting their own shit. FUcking insane and sad.

BELLA MER /// LOADED GUN ///

Sometimes you have some really fucking low moments in life, and hearing a simple but uplifting message in a song really resonates in some strange cinematic way, maybe it’s how I’ve been programed by our military entertainment complex, because every now again something gets through the cracks and I start to feel shit. Believe me I make a concerted effort to not feel shit 24/7. This song really gets cooking toward the end. When you least expect it, just what you least expect, love comes quickly whatever you do you can’t help fallin’ (oh ahhh ehhh oh ahhh ehhh).
