Kalia Vandever ~ Regrowth

Springtime is finally upon us – nature is bursting into life all around. The mornings and evenings are lighter, the birds sing, the flowers bloom. The ongoing renewal and rebirth of flora and fauna are (just about) enough to lift

Million Moons ~ Gap in the Clouds

Gap in the Clouds is the rare debut that doesn’t sound like a debut, from a duo that doesn’t sound like a duo.  These U.K. post-rockers enter with confidence and verve, incorporating the strength of the genre while writing a suite

Take Me Somewhere Nice: A Tribute to Mogwai

Few post-rock bands inspire tribute albums, but few last 27 years.  Mogwai is the exception, the Scottish band continuing to innovate and impress as it ages.  For some of our younger readers, there has always been a Mogwai.  This loving tribute

Nonsun ~ Blood & Spirit
