Microwave Pasta and Xasthur- Subliminal Genocide
Xasthur puts out the bleakest, most beautiful beautiful deconstructed noise for the end of the world. Subliminal Genocide is no different. Darkly glimmering weave themselves into the dense, buzzing texture of guitars and ferocious, ametrical drumming, creating that dimly lit sonic space that is (to people like me) pure love. LOL.
Xasthur doesn't need bandmates to create haunting and amazing music, and I need neither a pot nor a stove to cook pasta. I took an old pasta jar sauce, filled it up with water and pasta, and microwaved it for 2 minutes. I sprinkled in some salt and screwed the top back on, and waited for around 20 minutes or so, enough time to watch a few metal videos on Youtube.
My pasta came out just right, and those rabid environmentalists Wolves in the Throne Room (whom I will go see this Friday) would certainly approve.
