Has anyone heard of these guys? Just recently found out about them and cant stop listening to them.

They are playing slow drony instrumental music with a little jazz, country etc. Not sure if this really is the right thread for this band but I guess some kind mod can fix that.

I just link some songs here and you guys can let me know what you think

Earth from Seattle? Great band though I don't see how they could be considered jazz.

If you are new to this style of music try Sunn O))) and Boris

Are you talking about those weird sphincter-spasms where it feels like there's a ghost dick in your ass for a little while and then it just disappears?

Yeah because Sunn O))) and Boris are totally blues/jazz...

Awesome band but not jazz in the slightest. I saw them a few months ago, pretty good show. Of their new stuff I prefer Hex and Hibernaculum to Bees and Angels. Give their old drone stuff a listen too

I can see their latest albums (From Hex onwards) being considered some variant of bluegrass, but their older stuff is quite metal.
Love the band though. Missed an opportunity to see them in April, and then I was hoping on seeing them when they go to DC this month, but I'll miss that as well.

I saw these guys recently enough. some cool riffs and ideas, but generally the whole thing moved a bit too slow for me. It didn't help that every track was played at the same tempo too, helping it blend into one another, which was probably the idea.

great sound, cool riffs and a humble, no bullshit band.

Bored me a little though.

maybe I should start smoking weed again?

Not entirely new to it. A friend of mine is big into it. About as close to drone as I'd go would be ISIS or cult of luna. I've heard Boris and sunn O))), asobi seksu and a few more but can't really get into it.

Isis isn't drone...at all. Boris and Sunn O))) definitely are though.

I tend to listen to it when I'm already in a calm state of mind, and it just puts me into a 'zen' and I get super relaxed.
I absolutely love Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light. Such a good album.

Boris and Sunn are really the only two drone bands there

Isis and CoL are post metal/sludge and Asobi Seksu is shoegaze, and not drony at all
