Apologies. Bit of a humblebrag here. But my new 8 hour dark ambient/electro/doom album, recorded under the name Dirty Knobs and titled Field Recordings from the Edge of Hell, has been getting a fair bit of press lately.
It started with Warren Ellis, writer of Transmetropolitan and Crooked Little Vein, who blogged, “…I have little more to add…I swear I can hear organs playing from inside a pit…Wonderful.” Andrea Swensson of the City Pages recently wrote, “…something quite extraordinary…haunting at points and shimmeringly beautiful at others. It sort of makes me want to listen to it forever.” And Greg Swan of Perfect Porridge said “Thick, brooding and unforgiving…an interactive sonic canvas experiment, custom colored by the listener’s current emotional state.” I also talked a bit about the recording process with the Duluth News Tribune’s Christa Lawler on the While Your Were In blog.
So if you’re looking for something terrifying/relaxing to listen to all day at work or at home or while you’re tidying up your panic-room, then maybe give it a listen/like/tweet. You can stream the entire album for free, download three songs for free (that’s over 60 minutes) and buy it all for just $1 (or more if you’d like.)
