This Toilet Tuesday (10/22/19)


Toilet Tuesday lands with a tremendous thud this week, crushing us under the pile of new music. It’s not a bad thing necessarily; I faced a little bit of option paralysis trying to decide who to write about, so if my pick doesn’t do it for you, you’ve got plenty of other bands to check out. Not a ton of big names this week, but it’s overall pretty quality.

Lowcaster – Flames Arise (Ripple Music) [Doom]
Listen to “Flames Bemoan the Tide”

The constant gloom hanging overhead these past few weeks has given me a craving for something slow and somber; for this, I turn to Lowcaster. Epic, fuzzy doom with a touch of prog and atmospheric lead guitar is exactly what the grey skies called for. I love how the super clean, clear vocals pierce through the walls of distortion, yet fit totally into the greater sound. It’s the perfect complement to a dreary autumn. 10/25/19 (Spear)
