Jake’s Picks for March:
Sunn O))) & Ulver — “Terrestrials” LP
“This record is beautiful. Which caught me off guard considering how heavy these bands are/were, but it totally delivers. Very interesting ambient drone tunes perfect for studying (yeah right!) to. Three tracks coming in at 34 minutes make this the perfect amount of bang for your buck.”
Marked Men — “Ghosts”
“I will keep this short and sweet just like this tape. 15 tracks of poppy punk by the dudes from Radioactivity. Get into this.”
