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

What a month for Pelagic Records.  First came a new album from pg.lost, then an split EP from Ef & Tiny Fingers, then an aural banquet from Wang Wen, and now the coup de grâce: a new studio set from Mono (released by

Wang Wen ~ Sweet Home, Go!

No more singing, screaming, or sampling of dialogue: by concentrating on pure instrumental bliss, China’s Wang Wen has made their best album to date.  We challenge our readers to identify any other band who’s been able to do this in their ninth

Ef / Tiny Fingers ~ Vayu

One of our favorite post-rock bands is back, and this time they’ve brought friends!  Gothenburg’s Ef has established a name for itself over the past decade, and every release is now an event.  Pelagic Records’ Split Series pairs them with Israel’s psychedelic rockers Tiny

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

Mono & The Ocean ~ Transcendent

Mono & The Ocean‘s split 12″ follows the template of the recently reviewed All We Expected/Raum Kingdom split LP.  Mono’s side is instrumental, The Ocean’s has vocals, and yet both are complimentary.  One might say that the groundwork was laid

Takaakira “Taka” Goto ~ Classical Punk and Echoes Under the Beauty + Track Premiere!

Mono fans, rejoice!  Lead guitarist Takaakira “Taka” Goto is now set to unveil his debut album, a work that didn’t sound at all like Mono when it was conceived, but sounds a lot more like Mono now.  The band’s shift from pure

Ef ~ Delusions of Grandeur

After six years, it’s safe to say that Gothenburg’s Ef has proven to be the rare post-rock band with staying power.  They’ve done so by creating a distinct sound that at one time was a blend of Efterklang and Sigur Rós, but
