Who is Stephen O'Malley? The association that probably first comes to mind is that he is half of the monolithic monster that is Sunn O))). Yet we'd be negligent in stopping with this most-known band of his, and assuming that it's the only trick he has up his sleeve. Through a large volume of albums across a wide variety of doom bands, drone bands, ambient bands, and everything in between, O'Malley has demonstrated that he is a major musical innovator, a "virtuoso of sound" of sorts who has his particular approach so down to a T that it would be virtually impossible for anybody else to recreate it. This list attempts to explore that innovation, and shed light on some of the more obscure fringes of it.
