    While it has Little Man With a Gun in His Hand, most of the other songs aren't as nuanced and memorable for me. I think Buzz was the first time Watt played bass without a pick.

    "Cut", "I Felt Like A Gringo", "The Product", and "Little Man With A Gun In His Hand" are all some of my absolute favorite Minutemen songs.

    I haven't listened to the new one yet, but my favorite album of theirs is Born Innocent.

    My intros were Neurotica and Third Eye. Both sum them up pretty good I think.

    Really, I'd recommend Asa Breed and Leave Luck to Heaven as well, but Black City is just a little funkier for my blood.

    Black City is pretty dense and hard to penetrate at first though. Plus, Asa Breed has "Don & Sherri."

    Only after I listened to Black City did I appreciate Asa Breed.

    and I can't wait for his new one. The new track is killer.

    I felt the same way, and I was a fan of Leave Luck to Heaven. I dunno.

    That EP that came out earlier this year was pretty disappointing, not bad, but just seemed like he was treading water. Still, I'm looking forward to something new from him. And hopefully more touring.

    I'm halfway through Black City and I am loving it so far. I wouldn't really call it dense but I could see how some of the more experimental aspects would be hard for some to grasp. I'm already looking forward to checking out Asa Breed.

    This is a great observation, and one which rings true in my experiences as well.

    I don't know if it's the easiest/best entry point for Sun O))), but that's not really the point. It's kind of an "all in" approach to this band, which is how you should do it.

    Monoliths is probably the easiest entry point. If you like it, Black One is my favorite Sunn O))) release. White 2 is really great, and the Grimmrobe Demos is doom at its most primal.

    I don't know if checking their recorded music out would even be the best approach. I was completely sold on them by seeing them live without having a clue about what they sounded like. Their live sets are massive things, complete sensory overload and masterfully paced. I'd almost recommend seeing them and then listening to stuff afterwards. Knowing their material is definitely not essential to enjoying them live.

    Wear earplugs if you want to be able to hear ever again after the show.

    Hahahaha. Maybe true, although I question how much even the ear plugs will do with that much low end.

    Matt, I've seen Sunn 3 times. The first time, they were so overbearingly loud that they blew out all the power in the venue. The second time, they were a four-piece with Oren Ambarchi (Australian guitar wizard) and Attila Csihar (vocalist from OG Black Metal group Mayhem) and they were so mind-expandingly incredible it was hard to comprehend. The vocalist performed as a tree spirit, which was WAY more terrifying and haunting than it sounds. The third time, they played their album Altar, which is a collaboration with Boris. At the end, I sat in the back of the venue and watched bottles and cups dance along the floor to the bass rhythms.

    Yeah, Altar at ATP was, by far, the most sensory overload experience I've had at a live show. There's just no other way to put it. I absolutely cannot wait for the show in August.

    But, on topic, I would actually recommend Black One to a new listener. A lot of times the "cookie monster" vocals are what turns a lot of people off to this kind of stuff, and Black One features far less of that than Monoliths and Dimensions does.

    Did anybody here see the Sunn performance with the singer performing the set from the coffin? That shit sounded insane (meaning I heard about it, not that it literally sounded insane - though it might have)
