2022 Winter Music Preview ~ Rock, Post-Rock, Folk & Jazz

2021 proved (again!) that post-rock is as strong as ever.  We’re hoping that the momentum of the last year will carry into the next.  While it seemed that every veteran post-rock band released an album last year, a few are

ACL 2021 ~ Top Ten Rock and Post-Rock

Sorry, friends, no folk or jazz made our top ten this year ~ 2021 was the year of rock and post-rock!  With almost every major post-rock band releasing an EP or album in 2021, even some of the top performers

Jónsi ~ Obsidian

Obsidian may have been a surprise release, but it was long in the making, as evidenced by the intricacy of the music.  This sumptuous album is thick in texture and stereo effects, a reflection of the concurrent exhibition at New York’s

The cover depicts a house seemingly on fire, but the bright blue tones, the window frames’ religious symbolism and the peppering of matter throughout the sky all lend a cold, haunting veneer. It’s a fitting image for music that in

Maybeshewill ~ No Feeling Is Final

Fans grieve when bands break up, but rejoice when they reunite.  U.K. post-rockers Maybeshewill had called it quits in 2016, reuniting briefly for a concert (because when Robert Smith asks, people say yes).  But now, seven years after Fair Youth, the quintet

The shadow of GY!BE looms large over Golden Hymns Sing ‘Hurrah’, but it’s a welcoming shadow, with comforting wings.  Less than a year has passed since the first installment of The Great Dystopian Songbook was published, but since then, little has occurred

SEIMS ~ FOUR

It should be obvious that FOUR is SEIMS‘ fourth album, but it’s not that simple.  SEIMS – originally a solo project – made a turn toward its current direction with the release of 3 and 3.1 a year and a half apart, eventually merged as 3 +
