L’Effondras ~ Les Flavescences

We usually leave the hard stuff to our friends at Echoes & Dust, but this one was too good to resist.  Lyon post-rock / post-metal threesome L’Effondras channels the might of Tool in four long tracks and adds a whole lot of

Various Artists ~ Monika Werkstatt

One persistent, hydra-headed problem of warped gender perception is as deep as the internalization of the bias that perpetuates it. The media underrepresentation of women normalizes pre-existing prejudice.  Half of the population is visible in disproportionately smaller measure, bolstering the

Gentle Heart is a blissful closure to Mark Templeton‘s Heart trilogy. The soft and creamy loops are a return to paradise. These loops quickly overflow, close to being out of control but reigned in when things start to become too wild, and
