sleepmakeswaves ~ Made of Breath Only

No horns?  No strings?  It takes a while to adjust to the new, more muscular sound of sleepmakeswaves, but by the time the ten-and-a-half-minute monster “the edge of everything” drops, it all clicks.  Literally, we might add, as the combination of live and

ACL 2016: The Top 20 Albums of the Year

The last album we reviewed this year ended up being the best ~ in light of the title, a fitting end.  Our cover image is taken from its lead video; the actress seems to be giving the album a closer listen.

ACL 2016: Top Ten Rock and Post-Rock

As autumn approached, we were worried; where were all the good rock and post-rock albums?  But at the end of the year, they entered in a flurry.  What began as a disappointing year turned out to be incredibly solid ~

Mono ~ Requiem for Hell

pg.lost ~ Versus

When did pg. lost become this melodic? I wonder as I delve into the opener of the Swedish quartet’s latest album.  “Ikaros” is a lovely piece, but so wavy, so rolling, so unexpected.  The guitars are intact, the electronics remain present, the builds and the
