Front & Follow ~ You Can Never Leave

Sadly, this is the last project we’ll ever hear from the sublime Front & Follow label, or as the label writes, “one final final FINAL project” since even this is a bonus.  But Bandcamp leaves the door ajar by saying that the

Federico Durand ~ Herbario

The Laaps imprint continues with its final entry of spring, released on the cusp of summer.  As some recall, each album begins where the last leaves off, which means Federico Durand‘s “Salvia” proceeds from the mouth of Stijn Huwels and Tomoyoshi Date’s “A

SØVN Records ~ Music for queuing at the supermarket

When it comes to “most hated genres,” supermarket music comes in second only to elevator music. SØVN Records hopes to change all that with its 30th release, a creative compilation from across its 6-year roster.  Where else might we always

Cheryl E. Leonard ~ Schism

“If your home were on fire, what item would you rescue first?”  In 2019, the top answer was the laptop. During the pandemic, we became even more attached to our electronic devices.  It’s hard to imagine getting through our lockdowns without

Dustin O’Halloran ~ Silfur

A pandemic affords the opportunity for reflection, even in those who prefer to look forward.  Dustin O’Halloran is one of these people, although given his expansive, award-studded history, one would imagine he’d be happy to dwell on his triumphs.  Silfur was recorded

Gaspar Claus ~ Adrienne

Considering how often we’ve typed his name, it’s shocking to realize that Gaspar Claus has never recorded a solo album.  The cellist first came to our attention a decade ago as part of FareWell Poetry ~ a collective whose alumni have continued

giant skeletons ~ Von Belkinrode nach Bellingroth: an Audio-Geography

I’m a bit envious of Nico Walser (giant skeletons), who has made great use of his pandemic time in recording an audio geography of his hometown of Engelskirchen, Germany. Such a project has been on my bucket list for a
