Mad Parish - Procession

Self-Released 2014

Right from the very first notes of the opening song "Darkness Befalls This Cursed Land", you know you're in for a trip down metal lane. The classic fade in sets you up for the righteous metal saga that Procession so eloquently weaves from beginning to end.

I really dig the way that no riff sounds rushed. The spacing accomplished in these arrangements are brilliantly suited for Josh McConnell's classically-highish metal vocals. I quite like when and where you can find the vocals in the midst of all of these tasty hooks.

Holograms of summer

"Holograms of summer" is a winter survival mix curated by CJLO alumnus and former Sucker Blues host Simon Howell.

Uhhh so I haven't had a radio show for a little while now but I figured I'd give this a crack. Sunny summery jams of the balearic beach beardo / sunny psychedelia / synth-pop / dance-pop / pastoral variety. Etc. And some other junk. Enjoy.

Simon is a writer, editor, radio host, and co-founder of Sound On Sight.

Near-hypothermia? Sure. Snow blindness? Fine. Wind storms shaping the city into a deserted moonscape? BRING 'EM ON. Winter was great and I hope it lasts forever in a climate-defying vortex of darkness, deal with it.
