ACL 2019 ~ Top Ten Rock, Post-Rock, Folk & Jazz

2019 was the best year for post-rock in recent memory. We knew it early; by spring we were well on our way to a top ten.  The dominance of post-rock on this year’s list is a sign of strength which

ACL 2019 ~ Top Ten Drone

Drone music doesn’t need to be scary; there’s nothing inherently frightening about elongated tones.  Yet the drone genre does seem predisposed toward darkness.  Just look at the cover art for Black to Comm; or the compositional corpses found in the BABEL hardback

A-Sun Amissa ~ For Burdened and Bright Light

Gizeh Records founder Richard Knox is continually expanding his sonic horizons.  His participation in multiple collectives allows him to change masks and look at the world in different ways.  Even with A-Sun Amissa, he’s produced quieter works than this.  For Burdened

astrïd ~ A Porthole (I)

Rachel Grimes added her blessing to 2017’s Through the Sparkle, and while her piano is absent here, her spirit remains.  With each release, astrïd seems more like the heir apparent to Rachel’s.  Like that Kentucky collective, they love a conceptual release, and A Porthole

Julia Kent and Jean D.L. ~ The Great Lake Swallows

It’s been three years since we’ve heard a new Julia Kent album, although the cellist has kept busy as a guest artist (Markus Guentner’s Empire) and remixer (Michael Price’s Diary Reworks).  On The Great Lake Swallows, she teams up with tape manipulator and guitarist Jean D.L. and field
