At some point of 2021 (I guess June), I started making YouTube playlists from the Hildsvfar Records page with the intention of both sharing what songs had been stuck in my head each month… and to… Continue reading “Ian’s Earworms” Monthly Playlists
It’s been a rough year. A lot of good, a lot of bad, but I won’t get into any of it, because today I’m posting my “albums of 2022.” Didn’t say “best of,” because honestly I’ve spent a good chunk of this year listening to Masayoshi Takanaka live videos and other non-2022 releases on YouTube,… Continue reading The Unrefined Jagoff’s 2022 Year End Albums List
In a not-so-shocking turn of events, premiere brimpcore band Tropical Pinefruits, have deleted their Twitter account.

I’m realizing now that it’s been 6 months since I’ve posted anything to the site, and well over a year since I’ve done a new podcast, but… that’s life! Just last Friday, my friend Ben interviewed me for his new interview series on his Black Metal and Brews YouTube channel, you can watch it below… Continue reading Updates as of May 27, 2020

With… Continue reading New Music From October!
