Åke Parmerud ~ Nécropolis

Nearly a year has passed since the release of Åke Parmerud‘s creative collection Growl, which included pieces inspired by birds, machines, vinyl grooves and heavy metal growls. Nécropolis covers glass, voices, a blind dreamer and the city of the dead.  The specificity of each

ACL 2015: The Year’s Best Album Covers

Album art can draw listeners to music, or push them away.  The best album art enhances the overall presentation, while the worst detracts from it.  In some cases, we’ve reviewed albums because of the art, while in others we’ve declined.

Gilles Gobeil ~ Les lointains

The final piece of our empreintes DIGITALes triptych demonstrates the diversity of the label, as well as the intelligence of its artists.  Québec’s Gilles Gobeil has over 25 years of recordings under his belt, but has not released a solo album since

Georges Forget ~ Le dernier présent

Elizabeth Anderson ~ L’envoi

Tackling William Blake, Madeline L’Engle, Mayan culture, solar winds, WWII, 9/11 and more on a single set is a daunting challenge, but somehow Elizabeth Anderson manages to pull it off.  It helps that the majority of the album is instrumental, as lyrics
