As for the expected and gladly-dished subjects for a site like this...well; I never cease my metal, ambient, alt, neo-classical, rock, and post-*whatever* escapist immersion. When it's not in my headphones or struggling from the laptop speakers through the flowing sounds of the AC (God be praised), it's echoing in my thoughts and soul. Some of this music doesn't even exist on this plane yet.
The Basarabian Hills review surprised even me. As I admitted in the text itself, I only like to feature content that I enjoy. And that release is no exception. However, my honesty and choice to review a "lesser" release by a great project says something about my artistic demeanor as of late. I don't know what it says, and don't know if i like or agree with it. But (as they say in many completely grueling job-scenarios), "It is what it is."
The new featured release on the homepage isn't new. In fact - it's not even considered the proper first representation of the project. But...leave it up to a fellow like myself to gravitate toward a bit more obscured material. Which reminds me; I'm planning on making it a point to interview even "non-celebrity" types in the interview section. I believe that celebrity status is relative, and I dwell in small kingdoms. And in this one - anybody of relevance and interest is a star. A pentacle. A pentagram. What the fuck ever. But my aim is to bring more wonder to the daily intangible experience of thoughts and dreams.
Please don't be a stranger, dear readers. I aim to make this the most interesting batch of independently-minded and successfully misanthropic anti-media this side of media coverage. Selective, positive, and disdainful...all at the same time. Happily prick thy finger on the needle, brush the hay from your shoulders, and say, "Eureka!"
