Episode 17: Dark Ambien(t) Special 2017

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with '#17' on it.

Our highly (un)anticipated Super Spoopy Dark Ambien(t) Special. We started this one off in the murky area between death industrial and dark ambient, then we took a trip into the eerie ambient underworld. Headphones are encouraged, but not necessary, for listening to this episode. Play this one while reading something spooky and you’ll be in the Halloween spirit in no time.

Also, my apologies for the crackling noise in the background. The culprit was my laptop, but I’m not sure what the actual cause was. (Update: it was probably a ground loop issue.)
