Rich picked Matana Roberts, Chris picked Michael Price, James picked Ian William Craig, David picked Holly Herndon and Joe picked Heroin in Tahiti.  But this year’s #1, one of the longest albums ever recorded, drew support from across the board.

ACL 2015: Top Ten Modern Composition

The loveliest sounds of the year are found right here.  With a tender approach and attention to detail, these composers mine the spectrum of emotions to produce works of gravity and grace. Once upon a time, we called this music

Kreng ~ The Summoner

Don’t be fooled by the incredible teaser, which features the grinding doom and screaming vocals of Amenra.  The Summoner is a subdued album that culminates in cacophony.  But watch: here are the dozen stringed instruments, the long, slow draws.  This is

Shivers ~ S/T

Supergroup alert!  Shivers is the latest collaboration from Machinefabriek (Rutger Zuydervelt), Leo Fabriek and Gareth Davis (also on Erik K. Skodvin’s new album).  The album is a tribute to the film of the same name by David Cronenberg, an investigation of

Eric Thielemans ~ Sprang

Percussion is more than just drums, a fact that Eric Thielemans highlights on his latest effort for Miasmah.  The title is apt, as Sprang incorporates the sounds of springs and gears, plants and water.  It’s a springlike album, pun intended, perhaps the

ACL 2013: Top Ten Experimental

What’s new?  The Experimental field has the answers: tortured tapes, disturbing images, military drums, a garden of monsters brought to life.  This selection is where to turn for the most creative and original music of the year.  You’ve been warned!

ACL 2013: Top Ten Drone

In a classroom, a drone is a nuisance, but in music, it’s an attraction.  These artists know that drone is more than sustained sound; it’s texture, movement and tone.  Songs hum like appliances, grind like motors & clank like factories.

Gabriel Saloman ~ Soldier’s Requiem

Is it coincidence or intention that Gabriel Saloman‘s last two albums have been released in November?  The sound of the former Yellow Swans artist is tailor-made for this time of year: dark, moody, conflicted.  In our last two reviews, we commented
