You’ve probably been seeing a lot of this lately. A few weeks ago I asked you guys if you wanted to see my music related tweets posted to AGB. The general response was “yeah” so here we are. I’ve gotten a bit of informal feedback since then, so I figured it’d be a good idea to see what alla yall thought of tweets overpowering the proper reviews. So here’s a quick little survey. Let me know what you think. thx <3
Ryan Huber is the dude who runs Inam Records, makes gloriously devastating metal noise as Sujo, and less metal but no less awesome noise as Olekranon. He’s pretty quiet on the internet, except for his onslaught of releases that eventually show up on Bandcamp, so I’m very honored that he allowed me to ask him some questions. Also, this may or may not be the only photo of Ryan in existence.
What is the best way to die?
Accepting the end and being at peace with your life. We’re all going to get there with some regrets; appreciate the universal experience.
How do you think you’ll die?
Odds are cancer or car accident.
What makes you happy?
Being with a person who I feel connected to, making and listening to music, a shared sense of humor with someone, wine.
How can you die happy?
If I was experiencing the above when it happened; that’s probably the closest I would get to dying happy.
How close have you come to death?
Riding in a car with 7 drunks speeding down a highway at one o’clock in the morning with the lights off and hitting a deer.
What does kindness mean to you?
Doing something nice for someone not because it makes you feel good but because it is good.
Where do you find love?
Relationships, animals, music.
When were you most afraid?
Growing up when my mother would sometimes come home really late from work. She had a friend that was decapitated in a car wreck and and I couldn’t stop thinking of that when she wasn’t home at the normal time. I’m noticing a theme.
How do you listen to music?
Driving, reading, on the computer, running; it’s the one constant environmental additive in my life. Genre’s are usually seasonal. As it gets warmer, I tend to listen to older hardcore and punk. Winter is for drone. Autumn is for electronic/indie rock I guess.
creepin out with Lee Noble’s Ruiner, dude somehow found the mythical gloom folk pop forest, came back with this treasure of a record #agb
Tennessee’s Joseph Davenport is back with a new Millipede record, this first since 2011′s Realms (although he did have a new piece on my free comp You’re All The Fucking Best) and it’s a fucking winner. This dude belts out the noisiest harsh bliss I’ve ever heard, sounding like he’s tossed a hundred guitars into a raging bonfire, caked in scorched & burnt feedback, with gauzy melodies climbing out from a pit of red hot embers, some blown out mixture of shoegaze, psych, drone folk, & space rock, taking all of those sounds and leaving them out to crust up in the desert sun, the core still peaking through the shell, and in fact the “lead” guitar is more noticeable than ever in The Lower World, nuzzling up to your ear drums while the caustic distortion bores through your skull, this is a masochistic record of pain & pleasure, the beauty buried deep in grit and wholly worth excavating, one of Millipede’s best, and exciting as hell because this the second part of a trilogy (Realms being the first), so we know there’s more destructive brilliance on the horizon.
Doom duo Holly Hunt who put out last year’s most underrated devastatingly heavy LP are playing O’Brien’s tonight. Don’t miss it. #agb
