If anyone has any specific recommendations they want don’t be scared to send an ask, by the way. I’m mostly nice.

As the summer is close by could someone recommend me music in the vein of Earth’s “The Bee’s Made Honey In The Lion’s Skull” or any uplifting drone?

Pretty please?

Headdress, Barn Owl, Burden, and drcarlsonalbion should get you started.

Anonymous asked: tim hecker. if so what are some other good drone projects?

dronesleep:

I’m assuming you want me to fill out that ask thing, right? I guess its a little weird getting one of those now, since I was doing those over a week ago, but I’ve got nothing better to do (as is normal) so sure.

Am I a fan?: Absolutely.

First Song I Heard By Them?: The Piano Drop, just ‘cause its the first track off Ravedeath, 1972

Favorite Song?: I can’t pick one, I tend to listen to his records as complete pieces. My favourite of his records is either Ravedeath or Harmony in Ultraviolet.

Seen them Live?: Nope.

Favorite Member?: Tim, obviously.

As for other drone projects, since you’re asking about Tim Hecker, I’m assuming you want more ambient type stuff, rather than the more drone doom/drone folk type stuff, right? Well, off the top of my head theres:

  • Saåad
  • Belong (Particularly the album October Language)
  • Barn Owl & related projects - most of Barn Owl’s stuff is more guitar-y (for want of a better term), but I’m mentioning them because Evan Caminiti’s solo stuff is probably worth looking at if you want more ambient/drone stuff like Hecker’s.
  • Some of Horseback’s stuff (specifically the record Impale Golden Horn, the rest of their stuff is total insanity - its still amazing, but not really what you’re asking me for)
  • Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
  • Lawrence English (I can’t speak for his entire discography, but if you like Tim Hecker, you should enjoy his record Kiri no Oto.)
  • That new Sunn O))) & Ulver collaborative LP (Terrestrials) is actually quite beautiful, so I figure I may as well drop that here too.
  • Black Boned Angel (muuuch darker and louder than anything else I’ve listed, but still worth a mention)

Hope this is all helpful. I’m sure I’m missing assloads of stuff, but it should be a start.

To be clear, this has a few rapidly repeated base/pedal notes in the different sections but isn’t strictly drone. However, it is a slow development on a riff or two over 45 minutes but with a metal music influenced background.

While most of Orthrelm’s albums sound like Mick Barr wishing he was Chris Arp (nobody will ever be as good as Chris Arp icalledit), this is worth listening to at least once simply because it’s actually somewhat interesting despite ostensibly seeming to be an endurance challenge.

Incidentally if you don’t know who Chris Arp is you should look him up right now because asides from after playing a whole show of this stuff where his fingers begin to wilt, he can play circles around Paul Gilbert.

But really though why would you have a copy of Earth 2 on vinyl as anything but a collector’s item?

Sunn O))) & Boris - West Coast Tour 2005

Courtesy of Burlesque Design:

Our absolutely huge, meticulously six-color screenprinted ode to the chest-crushing sounds of Sunn O))) and the ever-astounding Boris of Japan. Their spectoral images pictured here garnering strength from the power of a glowing amplifier tube within the decayed womb of a dead tree. Trust us, your head’s gonna vibrate if you go see them, so bring your earplugs and some sturdy shoes. Joined by Thrones and Earth, Sunn0))) and Boris showed the West coast a thing or two as they traversed the Pacific Coast throughout the late Fall of 2005. Two different color versions here - one for the road, and one for Burlesque.

Continuing with the Sunn O)))/Boris theme, I figured everyone would enjoy this set of prints produced for the bands’ 2005 West Coast tour.  Pictured first is the “altar blue” variant, followed by the web edition (yellow lettering) and the show edition (orange on brown).  Aaron’s illustration must have impressed the bands, as they later used it on the cover of their 2006 Altar album.  As an added bonus, be sure to check out Burlesque’s "making of" video.
