Tom Busler

I was watching this video and my wife overheard it… and she casually asked if I was watching some sort of magic show, like Criss Angel or something. Didn’t seem like a stretch. I’ve dug the other singles, though.

July 26, 2015 on HEALTH – “Men Today”

This song sounds like a b-side from The Stills’ still-great *Logic Will Break Your Heart*. In fact, the vocal cadence and melody of the verse sounds like they are cribbing pretty hard from “Gender Bombs.” //

That said, “Art Vandelay” is still one heckuva jam.

There’s some Wire in this sound. They’d pair well with a warm Stag and a tour date with Australia’s Total Control.

Almost certainly this one.

No, this dude was definitely right. Very Rob Crow-y.

Also, I see how you overlooked some albums on your list. I forgot about Ravencult’s ~Morbid Blood~. What a ripping, tar-hearted riff fest that album is! Mmmm. Delicious.

Yeah… Mamaleek, Portrait, In Solitude, and, my favorite of the year so far… Lifelover’s ~Sjukdom~. Nice list… several I will have to look in to for the first time… several more I’ll need to give a second chance. For whatever reason, despite my love for AmRep / Touch and Go noisy stuff from the 80s / 90s (Big Black, Jesus Lizard, you know… the usual suspects), I can’t get in to this new wave of blackened noise / post-punk-tinged bleakness. I like (and in some cases LOVE) the ingredients, but I can’t crave the resultant dish (Tombs, KEN Mode, etc). Maybe I should keep eating it…? IDK. I will say that as a fan of both metal and indie rock, metal is kicking indie’s emasculated, pansy ass this year (I felt last year was the opposite story).

I haven’t laughed that hard all day. Go buy yourself something nice.

Seems major-key Krallice-y to me. And a bit more percussive given the 3rd minutes Morse code section. Interest piqued…

February 17, 2011 on Liturgy – “High Gold”

Best list I’ve read this year. I was eagerly awaiting it and, alas, it didn’t disappoint. Perhaps because it overlapped with mine so much! I’ll check out the bands that we didn’t share.

December 28, 2010 on Haunting The Chapel’s Top 50 Albums Of 2010

This album came out of nowhere to takeover my life for a good while. Brandon… do you think that it is the Repugnant / In Solitude crew like I’ve been reading elsewhere?
