Solo Collective ~ Part One

Solo Collective isn’t quite large enough to be called a supergroup, but it’s definitely a super trio.  Combining the talents of Dictaphone’s Alex Stolze (violin), Nils Frahm collaborator Anne Müller (cello) and The War On Drugs’ Sebastian Reynolds (piano), these versatile musicians demonstrate a great

Ranges ~ The Ascensionist

Nothing says “post-rock” like a big ‘ol mountain on the cover.  Add the name Ranges and the album title The Ascensionist, and the association is cemented.  But just as we’re starting to make a list of all the other post-rock bands with mountains on

Slow Heart Music ~ This Body Is Not Me

Yannick Dauby ~ Wā Jiè Méng Xūn

What’s Amphibia Anura to some, is Salientia to others.  If the taxonomy sounds obscure, perhaps their common call may help: “ribbet, ribbet” (or “kreck-ek, kreck-ek,” depending on one’s field guide).  Herpetologists rejoice, sound artist Yannick Dauby’s frog-centric album, Wā Jiè

Noon ~ Disquiet

America, you are fat, famished, and fleeting.  Now gloating, now moaning your cabinet shift—Earth’s mantle rumbling four letter words—are we consumed by an age of terror apprised of its errors?  Or are we gasping for air earned in appraisal of
