Presenting Ghost Signals: a new mixcloud series of hour long playlists, collecting (mostly) instrumental drone/ambient/doom/psych/post-rock/metal/modern classical pieces that share a common mood, loosely threaded together by samples from old noir movies/short stories/talks and speeches etc.
Concept inspired by Midnight Radio by Ehud Lavski and Yael Nathan: https://imgur.com/gallery/oYoLyHC

But you might not expect it to be this good – and especially this much fun.
“Oh no! The altar is poisoned!”
“God damn it, that’s why we don’t lick the altars Brian!
How many times Brian?
How. Many. Times.”

The metal titans pull further away from their concept driven roots – can they succeed in defining what a mega-stadium metal band should sound like in 2014?
The debut album by a Converge/Cave In side project that I’m going to call ConCave In to make myself feel clever.
A reasonably promising debut from the New York doom-sludge-sorta-post-ish metal outfit.
