Mirlitorrinco ~ Odas mixtas para criaturas mínimas

What is this strange creature that we see? Odas mixtas para criaturas mínimas promises “mixed odes for minimal creatures”, the creature in question being the Mirlitorrinco, which is not only a “creature of strange morphology and dramatic grunts… a unique monotreme mammal”

Russian Circles ~ Gnosis

Chicago’s Russian Circles is back, and as strong as ever.  Their newest album may replace loud-quiet-loud with loud-louder-loud, but that’s okay, because post-rock fans need this sort of outlet on the tail end (we hope) of a draining era.  Gnosis means spiritual knowledge, and

Esmerine ~ Everything Was Forever Until It Was No More

A few weeks ago, Esmerine surprise-dropped a new digital album, with the official physical release set for August 26.  This is a pretty rare feat, typically reserved for the likes of Beyoncé, but Esmerine is a luminary in the post-rock world.  Way

The Hardy Tree ~ Common Grounds

Footsteps in the snow; a creaky gate; the daily walk begins.  For Frances Castle (The Hardy Tree), these excursions took on new meaning during lockdown.  More attention was paid to the history of things: an abraded sign, a vintage street

Glenn Jones ~ Vade Mecum

Vade Mecum is a collection of ten instrumentals, performed fingerstyle on solo acoustic guitar by veteran virtuoso Glenn Jones, though he’d likely resist the second descriptor.  According to Jones, the Latin phrase means ‘go with me’. Another definition is a handbook kept by one’s

birds in the brickwork ~ Recovery

First came the pandemic.  Then Ben Holton (half of epic45) developed a severe back problem.  The limited movement of quarantine was exacerbated by the inability to move without pain.  The pleasure of the daily walk was curtailed.  And yet, Holton persevered,
