A few weeks ago we were stunned by the latest effort by Breaths called Floruit and while talking to Jason, the mastermind behind it, he quickly agreed to compile a playlist for us - so here it is! He collected some great tracks by Chrome Ghost, No Sun, Windhand, Pallbearer, Monolord and also some of the bands that have always had a big spot in the VoS-hearts like Slow Crush, Spotlights or King Woman or Cloakroom.
This playlist reflects the genres/bands I have had in constant rotation over the last few years. I’ve been really into both shoegaze/slowcore and doom/sludge metal lately, with this playlist having a good mix of some of my favorites from both sides (and some that meet happily in the middle). These styles were the primary influence for the new Breaths album, and for the album that I’m currently writing for my new solo project somei. Now that Breaths is a full band and writing collaboratively, I’m not focused as much on writing for that, so I channel my love for shoegaze and doom into somei.
