I was recently reminded of the fabulous comments generated by this song, so I decided to check out whether Sleigh Bells had any live songs about topics other than A Machines and B Machines. Turns out, there were a bunch of options to choose from.
I wasn't expecting to really like what I found, but I actually like it quite a lot.

I found this a couple of months ago and was entranced by it. I like Tim Hecker quite a bit, and giving him guitar feedback to twist and contort is a lot of fun to listen to. I've come back to this video many times over the past few months.
I haven't seen the documentary that this is apparently a part of. I should probably remedy that at some point.

A big shout-out to Will Oldham for making me aware of the dark ambient music of Norwegian artist Helge Sten, who goes by the moniker Deathprod. The whole of "Treetop Drive" is three movements that clock in at over a half an hour. This is a truncated version. This became one of my favorite pieces to paint to last winter. I also nicked part of it for a short film I put together last Fall.
