New Beach House!!!


New Beach House to welcome us back to the land of the waking and working this Wednesday morning. I need it. The album Once Twice Melody drops... well, I don't know that I quite understand the release schedule for this one, so let me just post the pre-order link to the band's site HERE and copy and paste the itinerary directly from the video below: 

Chapter One: November 10, 2021 
Chapter Two: December 8, 2021 
Chapter Three: January 19, 2022 
Chapter Four: February 18, 2022 (LP, CD, and cassette available)


Holy F&*k, and that's all I have to say about this. 

I really hope none of this is red herring (I fish I don't particularly care for.)


Another fantastic NCBD Wednesday. Short and sweet as far as the commentary this week, let me just mention how much I've grown to love Maw over the past two issues, and am very much looking forward to issue #3.
Oh yeah, and Primordial is just the bee's knees at this point. Andrea Sorrentino's art is next level. There are narrative mechanics at work even just in his layouts that represent enormous leaps forward for the medium - leaps I think it will be years before other people build upon. 


Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou - The Helm of Sorrow
Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou - May Our Chambers Be Full
Ozzy Osbourne - Ordinary Man
Greg Puciato - Child Soldier: Creator of God
Emma Ruth Rundle - Engine of Hell
Mastodon - Hushed and Grim
Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch: Censor OST
Slayer - Show No Mercy
Code Orange - Underneath


Another nod to completion, which leaves me slightly perplexed. That's half the fun, though. I always think of this card as an indication of balance - or at least a suggestion to strive for it. And truth be told, my balance is way out of whack right now. So maybe that's what I need to focus on right now. If it wasn't for this damn day job...
