ACL 2018 ~ Top Ten Electronic

Half of this year’s picks are from female artists, who represent a growing strength in the industry.  In 2018, we also saw a huge increase in the amount of ethnic-based, personal releases, with deep drums and deeper stories.  This year’s

Puce Mary ~ The Drought

Copenhagen’s Puce Mary makes her first showing on our site with her best album to date.  Torbjørn Rødland’s striking cover imagery is reminiscent of Kirk Weddle’s work on Nirvana’s Nevermind. The comparison is even more apt when one links Frederikke Hoffmeier and Kurt Cobain as

ACL 2017 ~ The Top 20 Albums of the Year

2017 was the most tumultuous year in recent memory, and we’re still trying to make sense of it all.  One thing we do know: the year produced a lot of great music, much of it related to the hopes and

ACL 2017 ~ Top Ten Experimental

This may be where music is headed ~ but then again, maybe not.  These artists are iconoclastic in their approach to sound.  From radio waves to distortion, puppetry to improvisation, they blaze their own trails, and those who can’t keep

Pan Daijing ~ Lack 惊蛰

Pan Daijing does not sound like anyone else.  This is a rare accomplishment, nearly unheard of for a debut LP.  Even her label (in an unusual confluence, PAN) avoids namedropping, despite the fact that such comparisons have become de rigueur. The sonic

ACL 2016: Top Ten Experimental

Here’s our fun section; few will be able to predict the contents. Haunted ballrooms, washing machines, stuttered poetry and mythological black dogs all find their place under the experimental umbrella.  Some people may call this “different” or “difficult” music; we
