Even though it slightly overstays its welcome and is not nearly as original as the blogosphere would like to have you believe, Deathconsciousness by Have A Nice Life is easily the most important album of the year so far and should be heard by everyone. After reportedly five years in the making, this lo-fi masterpiece conjures a mood so harrowing and overbearingly sombre that it makes funeral doom records sound like Barney's theme song.

Brilliant. Bewitching. Bright. Beautiful. Breathtaking. Bemusing... All that and so much more. Nothing short of a wonderful experience! In any case, a highly applauded album you should hear before you die.

There are comments in the review, though not many seem to get it. It's not perfect, but there's nothing quite like it. (Even the review is desperate to find comparisons to downplay its uniqueness, but they're really quite far-fetched.)

Just yesterday, I was inspired to make a Spotify playlist that would gather stuff with a certain mood and sonic range, songs that otherwise fall into different lists because I do them by genre. Essentially, I wanted to listen to The Angelic Process, Menace Ruine, and the Microphones when I listened to Have a Nice Life, so it grew from there.

I called it Fuzzconsciousness.

I get a little bit of a Jesu vibe sometimes form the music but it's very unique and I love it a lot. There are so many textures and so much atmosphere.

That reminds me, I should listen to Menace Ruine!
