I made an album of noisy/industrial-ish/doomy/vaguely post rock-ish sounds and I'm pretty happy with it. It's sometimes loud, sometimes spacey, abrasive, and repetitive. The middle four tracks are the meat of the album which started as one monster track with several different sections and builds. I might tinker with this again at some point if I find a vocalist but for now I'm calling it done. No final names for anything yet so here's the music with working titles:

Hey actual factual post-rock in 2019! Very very Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Thanks, that's exactly what I'm going for - kind of a mishmash of 90s Godspeed You style sampling and instrumentation with the drone and aggression of 2010s Swans.

This poo poo slaps and the production is top notch. Are you using an amp or modeling for the guitar and bass tones?

After spending way too much time agonizing about what name to release my stuff under (god drat it's hard to name yourself without sounding like a tryhard cheeseball) I decided to just use my name so here we go.

My first official EP release, Cylinder, is streaming on Spotify (and most other major streaming platforms here). I make instrumental drony/noisy/post-rock-ish kind of stuff with some light sampling. I like to think of it as a soundtrack for a thing that doesn't exist - basically I'm aping 1990s Godspeed You and 2010s Swans.

Since I ended up getting really good feedback on my last project I decided to continue with that sound and see where it takes me. I've got another tentative track finished and privately uploaded for preview/feedback on Soundcloud here:

https://soundcloud.com/user-9279874...-992019/s-vZKc6

I guess I'd call it post-rock but it has elements of noise, drone, dark ambient, and probably some other stuff but I suck at genres. I'm approaching it as a soundtrack without a movie - think mid 90s Swans or Godspeed You.

Feel free to drop a critique on the composition or mixing - thanks for listening!

Speaking of distributors, anyone know how long it takes for anything to show from Amazon? It's been months and I haven't seen anything show from there yet.

Depends on your distributor but it's usually one of the quicker ones. I decided to drop a release a week out and things were distributed on time to Amazon and everywhere else when I wanted it

Sorry, I mean for Amazon to pay out. I'm using Distrokid if that makes a difference.

Working on the second half of my post-rock/drone/'loving around with noise' album, would appreciate some thoughts on where it's heading

This is super old, but are you on bandcamp somewhere I can't find? I'd like to buy your album (I'll likey grab a couple of Khate's too if I do) and the new one too once it's done.

I've been listening to the first one a bunch on Google play.

Whoa thanks, I really appreciate that! I've been considering that first part a demo until the rest is finished so I'm not on bandcamp or really making any kind of publicity push until then. My goal is to have enough material to fill an LP and do a super small run for me and some friends/family so if that's your thing I'll be posting about it here when it happens.

Is Spotify okay? If not I can set up a SoundCloud when I get home.

Hi thread, like all of us I've had some spare time so I'm back at work on my apocalyptic post-rocky thing I've been working on and I think I'm finally happy enough with these two tracks to move on so this is what's likely to appear on the final version. Kind of worried that the spoken word samples are too cheesy and that the individual sections don't have enough room to breathe but if you listen let me know what you think. I'll be splitting this into 2 tracks around the 8 minute mark but as I work on it it's just one massive track so that's what I've uploaded here.

Hey I've finally finished the last track for my (drony, noisy, post-rockish, basically Swans worship) album, now to go through the process of trying to figure out how to commission art for commercial use and actually release this thing. Side note, if there's a guide anywhere that walks musicians with zero business sense through the "i finished my album, now what?" point in the process I'd love to take a look at it. Anyway, here's a rough mix of the track and I'm real proud of it.

And here's a playlist of the album in order:

This poo poo is dope and both my husband and I are thumbs upping the gently caress out of it. I'm listening to it on my lovely, tinny monitor speakers and can't wait to hear it on the big-rear end Boston Acoustics when our housemate is awake/out of the house. I'm saving the rest of the album for that treatment.

Also, if you want art done, I'm happy to help. All the stuff you see on my Bandcamp, I did myself, so consider that my portfolio. I'm a restaurant cook by day, so I ain't going back to work anytime soon, and I'd love to have a job thrown at me. Just click on my av text, and if anything speaks to you, PM with with more deets and we'll talk!

(Funny you should mention Swans, I've just been poking thru my old band shirt collection trying to find something I should/can cut up to make a face mask. I never wear my 20 year old Swans shirt bc it's got so many holes in it, and I think having OMNISCIENT OMNIPOTENT OMNIVOROUS wrapped over my rictus would be dandy.)

Greatly appreciate the kind words! I've been tweaking the mix/master and the most recent version is here for your hi-fi listening pleasure. Also I will definitely keep you in mind for art once I figure some other stuff out (i.e. what name am I releasing this as, what are the final titles of everything, oh god I have to make a ton of social media accounts, etc), I think your style seems pretty fitting for my sound.

Hey at least OMNISCIENT OMNIPOTENT OMNIVOROUS is better than PUBLIC CASTRATION IS A GOOD IDEA so it could be worse. Or better, your call.

e: Also you make super dope noises, I just skimmed through some of it to get an idea but I'll definitely be diving in later. Any suggestion for an album to start with?
