got free tickets to see these guys Sunday night. been hearing buzz around them for a while, but never dove in. what's a good starting point?
Start from the beginning. It's all good.
Saying that, I still haven't listened to the album from earlier in the year, so should probably get on that haha
also, get earplugs lol
And maybe eat before the show. I went it with a semi-empty stomach and anytime the low ends matched up, it vibrated my guts to hell. I actually had to take a few breaks during their set.
Coming from someone who's completely unfamiliar with the band/genre outside of hearing their name a bunch. It was definitely an experience and I'm glad I went.
I'm not really sure that it's for me. But I kind of understand it, in a live setting, through a loud PA, feeling the vibrations/frequencies or whatever.
I have a hard time understanding why any one would put on one of their records, but I guess if you were in the right head space and had some good headphones or speakers.
I know there's a million and a half people asking for someone to explain the appeal of Sunn O))) - That's not my question
But could someone tell me what people were filming on their phones... The room was filled with fog (to the point that the entire lobby was smogged out in the front and fog was pouring out of the front doors of the building and into the street) so you wouldn't capture anything visually, and I can't imagine any phone's microphone is capable of capturing any kind of audio that would even slightly replicate what we were hearing live.
FINALLY listened to Life Metal yesterday and listening to this today. I think it’s safe to say insides have been thoroughly shaken up.
