Do you ever come home from a hard day at work with an urge to unwind by a sea of sludgy monochromatic nihilism? Yeah, me too. Well, that sharp thirst just a got a little easier to slake now that the interweb has gotten a lot doomier; as The Quietus report, sunn 0)))’s ENTIRE discography can now be streamed FOR FREE via their Bandcamp page (and purchased for ~$8 per release if you’re so inclined).
Is there anything more comforting than drone? It’s the wombadelic sound of pre-ego existence, the sonic warmth of a life free from the burdens of the world, music awash in the primal need to express our thoughts through sound. sunn 0))) helped renew popular interest in this musical form, producing albums that act as metallic reflections of Tony Conrad’s seminal drone visions. There’s a certain unplaceable gratification in confronting oblivion head on, facing an aural void of absurd existential derangement with a welcome sense of masochism.
In light of our many debts to sunn 0))), go on, get comfortable, and gratify yourself already; and while you’re at it, you might as well digitally purchase a masterwork or four for good measure. I know I will.
