Crystal Fairies

Man, I totally forgot about this record. I remember posting about it back when it was announced, and then again after it came out, however, it has to be a few years since I last jammed the debut - and still only - album that brought together as formidable a lineup as Teri Gender-Bender from Le Butcherettes,  Buzz and Dale of the Melvins, and Omar Rodríguez-López of The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In, Antimasque, and, like ten other bands (at least). 



Pretty bummed to read that Netflix's live-action Cowboy Bebop has officially been canceled. I'll just leave this here to mourn and go back and start rewatching the animated series again, then go back into the live-action, which was WAY better than the legions would have you believe, IMO.


FFS - Eponymous
Underworld - A Hundred Days Off
Spotlights - Love and Decay
Zombi - Liquid Crystal
Sunn O))) - Monoliths and Dimensions
OOIOO - Gold and Green
Crystal Fairy - Eponymous


I've been really feeling Old, with a capital "O." I'm pretty sure it's because I sleep roughly five hours a night almost every night, and, closing in on 46, it's starting to catch up with me. So Strength is a regular thing - a needed sense of reserve fuel to get through any given day. I could go to bed earlier - I SHOULD go to bed earlier, but when it comes time to do so, I just fuck it up and stay up. Previously, one or two naps a week made all the difference. These days, every day is a nap day. I need to do something, I'm just not sure what. Well, that's not true. I need to go to bed earlier.

Crystal Fairy - Chiseler

The upcoming Crystal Fairy record, out Feb 24th on Ipecac is quickly becoming my most anticipated record of early 2017. This new song, which the band dropped a couple of days ago, is not only fantastic, but I swear I can hear all or most of the individual musicians's signature sounds mixed up in this potpourri of awesomeness.

Crystal Fairy - Drugs on the Bus

What do you get when you take Buzz and Dale from the Melvins, Omar from Mars Volta/ATDI/Antemasque and Teri Gender Bender from Le Butcherettes?

Fucking magic, that's what.

New record by this left-of-center super group out February 24th on Ipecac.
