Touch: Isolation

The Touch: Isolation project is one of the best things to emerge from lockdown.  The project began as a means of providing income to furloughed musicians, but quickly developed into a real-time reflection on the COVID-19 crisis.  The first phase is now

Jeremy Bible ~ Human Savagery

We first mentioned Human Savagery back in January 2017; since then the film has been making the festival rounds to universal acclaim.  This year the score has finally been released, and what a time to do so!  The themes of environmental degradation

Roly Porter ~ Kistvaen

bvdub ~ Ten Times the World Lied

With nearly 40 albums to his credit, it’s a surprise to hear that this is bvdub‘s first album without vocals. After all, we’re an instrumental-based site and we’ve reviewed a lot of them.  But to be fair, Brock van Wey usually
