Tim Hecker ~ Konoyo

Tim Hecker‘s Virgins was our #1 album of 2013, while 2016’s Love Streams was never picked up for review ~ the tonal differences were so great that they caught our reviewers off guard.  We missed the abrasion, the jutting edges, the jagged wrecks of

Bus Gas ~ Immortal Yeller / Amulets ~ Mountains Past

Spring Break Tapes‘ double cassette is the type of release that makes one happy to own the physical product.  A series of cards, some die-cut and others clean, are included in the snug case so that one may create one’s

Siavash Amini ~ Foras

Foras, which is “outside” in Latin, continues Siavash Amini’s exploration of consciousness, in which last year’s Tar delved upon the relations between the individual and the collective forms of mind. Foras turns that principle inside-out, focusing on the latent connections

R. Schwarz ~ Wind 4-7

The music industry is less accustomed to sequels than the movie industry, but occasionally one does appear.  This is the case with Wind 4-7, a follow-up to 2016’s (you guessed it!) Wind 1-3.  In the new set, Robert Schwarz again mixes field recordings with

Sekar DMN ~ Sekar DMN

Sekar DMN is a thoughtful exploration of gamelan orchestras through the terms of post-rock, metal, and noise, and part of what makes the premise interesting is that it was entirely composed and recorded in Indonesia. After all, for all the

The term black noise can refer to a type of noise that is nearly silent, or to another type that is simply dark.  Hannes Kretzer‘s brand is the latter, although it also allows room for glimmers of light.  Much of this comes
