Amiina ~ Pharology

Once in a while, and much less frequently than we’d like, we’re reminded of how much we like post-rock.  This happens whenever a release arrives to tell us, once again, that the genre is alive and well.  The latest release

Thisquietarmy x Away ~ The Singularity, Phase II

The kaiju saga continues with the Gamma and Delta sides of The Singularity, Phase II, the sequel to one of our favorite rock albums of last year.  It’s nice not to have to wait so long for a sequel, but even

Trialogos ~ Stroh zu Gold

How many bands were born during the pandemic? Our guess is not many, as social distancing kept folks apart.  Bucking the trend, cellist Sicker Man and multi-instrumentalist Kiki Bohemia launched a digital series called Cleansing Drones for Locked Down Homes at the

Shane Cooper ~ Happenstance

When double bassist Shane Cooper recruited a variety of friends to participate in his new album, the collaborations were no Happenstance; the title applies more to the remarkable variety of music that results from the juxtaposition.  Billed as “South African jazz meets musique-concrète,” the

Henrik Meierkord & Pawel Kobak ~ Marhia

The first collaboration by cellist Henrik Meierkord and house producer and flute player Pawel Kobak is a jarringly playful collection of songs that bounce from sweeping ambience to rave-ready dub breakdowns— and then back again— in a matter of tracks.

Fly Pan Am ~ Frontera

This is one fast album.  When we write, “After 25 years, Fly Pan Am shows no sign of slowing down,” take it literally. While a hint of the speed can be found at the end of last year’s extended video single

GLEN ~ PULL!

Berlin krautrockers GLEN have made an evolutionary leap from 2017’s CRACK.  While that LP featured two long instrumentals and three vocal tracks, PULL! is all instrumental save for the physical only bonus track; and the quartet’s sound has grown far more intense. The loose theme

Notre Dame de la Colline ~ Poèmes fous pour herbes fraîches

A lot may be written about the collective Founding our own Glorious Chapels, who brought us TorqueMadra a few years back.  Remember those wondrous, glorious days when all we had to worry about were Brexit and Trump, and the pandemic was a
