A light academic introduction to the Kolchak mythos. The author makes a case for Kolchak being the blueprint for the television version of the occult detective/reporter. Some interesting horror and historical analysis throughout.
A great book on the use and experience of drones in music. Covers folk, traditional, rock, electronic, and other genres.
A trio of music docs I enjoyed recently.
Did not expect this one to bring so much psychedelic and garage rock power. First album by Seger (1969).
Been listening to the first Wovenhand release (2002) by David Eugene Edwards of Sixteen Horsepower. Another genre-twister of a group, sometimes referred to as gothic folk rock. Edwards has written a lot of marvelous songs.
It’s a pleasure to listen to pieces with the score. Two that I have been checking out recently are below.
For the cross-section of Wagner, percussion, and fail fans out there. More exciting hammer videos if you look for Mahler’s 6th vids.
And Vincent Price.
