Luke Howard Trio ~ The Shadow EP

In this unprecedented year, some things never change. In this case, it’s us reviewing a Luke Howard record ~ although despite this being their fourth release, we haven’t until now covered the trio that one of our favourite pianists fronts.

Methods Body ~ S/T

The self-titled album from Methods Body is engaging and unpredictable, beginning in one place and ending where few might expect. The LP is broken into two parts, “Quiet” and “Claimed Events,” each with its own sub-movements.  Contrary to expectation, “Quiet” is anything

Lost Tribe Sound ~ Fearful Void Series

Our Label of the Year in 2019 returns with a vengeance in 2020.  One would think that the title Fearful Void was a response to the current crisis, but it has actually been in the works for years.  The same label that

Wolfhand ~ The Devil Arrives

We love the instrumental spaghetti western doom genre, although few releases qualify.  Wolfhand‘s new album is an exemplar.  The band cites Earth, Dirty Three and Barn Owl as references; we detect hints of Murder By Death and Red Dead Redemption.

Jon Brooks ~ How to Get to Spring

How to Get to Spring?  That’s a good question right now, given our current circumstances.  But Jon Brooks‘ title does not contain an interrogative; it’s more of a manual. The short teaser video displays a montage of cover art, a snowflake

Whale Fall ~ It Will Become Itself

First things first: that’s a W on the cover, not a III, and this is Whale Fall‘s 4th album.  Now that we’ve cleared up any confusion, check out that Pacific Blue vinyl!  It’s deep and dark enough for a whale to
