[Music] JOHN 3:16 – Sinner’s Prayer

Wave after wave of beautifully crunchy, hypnotic drone is what makes JOHN 3:16’s new release (a reissue from 2011, apparently), a 30-minute affair, so appealing. The guitar playing is so heavily textured that you feel like a sonic blanket has wrapped you up, making you forget, albeit temporarily, the vagaries of the world.  Drone music tends to be hazy, but this release would have been a stunner during the psychedelic 1970s as much as it is today.

This is a stunning mini-album. Many compliments to Philippe Gerber, JOHN 3:16’s leader and guitarist, for pointing me to this reissue.

[Music] Frail Digit Lamb’s Tongue – Just Rulings in the Court of Astaroth?

I normally don’t cover much noise because the scene is filled with garbage.  Most of it consists of nihilists more interested in shocking their readers with crap record covers than constructing sonic art.  Most sound like a teenage kid flipping on the switch to their mother’s vacuum, recording it, and tacking on a diatribe and an asking price for $5.  Pass.

This album was a pleasant exception.  We have 67 tracks of short, sharp, no-nonsense noise, courtesy of Geronimo Arafat’s noise project, Frail Digit Lamb’s Tongue.
