Arms of Tripoli ~ Daughters

After their second release, Dream in Tongues, two of Arms of Tripoli’s core members departed, leaving the other three band members at a crossroads. After a difficult discussion, George, Jaimie and Mike used their desire to persevere and began experimenting

Elara ~ In the Depths of Time, In an Ocean Made of Stars

Post-rock is a tricky genre.  As a life-long fan, I tend to regard almost all post-rock as good.  But each year, only a handful of post-rock albums rise above the remainder, demanding repeat plays.  In the Depths of Time, In

Post-Rock Road Trip: Day Eight

We conclude our first post-rock road trip by traveling straight down the latitude line through Russia, Japan and Australia, where we are introduced to Show Me a Dinosaur, Neko Nine, The Creator Of and Lemon’s Chair, and re-encounter Dumbsaint, who have just completed the

Post Rock Road Trip: Day Three

Today our post-rock road trip acts like a European backpacker, making its pit stops in Scotland, the U.K. and Greece, staying in hostels and taking in new music from The Gothenburg Address, Those Amongst Us Are Wolves and Sleepstream.  We’ve been

Gargle ~ Glow in the Gloom

A little alliteration is present in the hard “g” sounds of the title and band, but a soft “g” might have been more fitting since Glow in the Gloom is an album of smoother edges.  The press release touts “sensitive and pathetic

Shy, Low ~ Shy, Low

Fluttery Records loves classic post-rock: ambient builds, dialogue breakdowns, thick crescendoes.  Shy, Low (a play on “Shiloh”, the former capital of Israel) is its latest discovery.  This Richmond band gets right into it with “Confirmation Bias” (that’s Alec Baldwin in
