Karhu, W, and I saved a fistful of the chunkier bits for further examination, but you can be assured that we didn’t catch them all. Check out the full list below for more good stuff and share it with the group! Continue Reading

  • This Toilet Tuesday (1/10/17)

    Thinking about how much good music oneself will never hear is a little depressing. We’re inundated with so much new music that even if we were listening to music constantly, it would be impossible to keep up. Yet here we are every week, searching and digging for new tunes to please our ears. We’ll never be able to listen to everything we want to, but we can at least keep giving ourselves that rush of excitement that comes with finding something fresh and new. For that, we can provide.

  • This Toilet Tuesday (12/20/16)

    Winter is very nearly upon us, and I’m about ready to die. Christmas is right around the corner, and the thought of having to spend time with other humans is not terribly appealing. More worthless political bickering, more questioning of why I don’t plan on having kids while I’m surrounded by screaming children, more passive-aggressive crap flung between family members… Just let it end. Fortunately, we’ve been provided with an excellent soundtrack for all this nonsense this week, and W. and Stockhausen have picked out a couple of the best. Check those out and come wallow with me.

  • This Toilet Tuesday (12/13/16)

    Trying to keep up with new music is painful. Just when you think that it’s starting to slow down and give you some time to clear out your considerable backlog, Grafvitnir and Teitanblood decide to drop new albums in the same week. Plus, you’ve come across a handful of bands you’ve never heard of that have some awesome songs out, and your backlog just got that much bigger. You may never catch up, but at least you’re in good company; W. and I have picked out a couple of the choicest cuts to save you some time. Let us know what else we need to hear, that we may all suffer in solidarity. Continue Reading
