Top 2020 album picks from the FCU conttibutors.
Imbibing the pared down, psychedelic-infused folk ditties from South Africa’s weirdo experimental duo.
Let the forest speak my name.
Down this old road, to Appalachia.
An outlandish cross-pollination of psychedelic synth quirks, verdant folk melodies, acid-churning sludge, and a sundry of timbres balmy, bitter, and beatific.
Idyllic nature-drenched folk.
A recounting of our journey out to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and the festival that transpired near the Grand Teton mountain range.
We reach a lull as the abrasive yet alluring wall of sound is broken by swirling keyboards and reverb-drenched guitar. This respite is accompanied by visions of lush, green, cold forests that seems to pass by as if in some sort of fevered dream.
In episode twenty-seven, we vacate the halls of bone and flesh to journey to the quirky, synth-laden krautrock mountain of worms on Return to Worm Mountain’s eponymous LP. We get doused in the effervescent ambient energy of FOUDRE!’s Kami 神 and we get smoked out by the delectably hefty stoner doom crunch of Azimuth from Summoned by Giants.
In episode forty-three, Duncan Park (Listeriosis, Return to Worm Mountain) delves into each of his projects and discusses what he has learned from them. He speaks about how he came into contact with extreme metal, his love for drone, and how his compositional approach has evolved as he works with more musicians.
