Various Artists ~ The Music of Red Dead Redemption II (Original Score)

Finally!  It’s taken nine months for Rockstar Games to release a soundtrack to 2018’s #1 video game, Red Dead Redemption II ~ as long as it would take to produce an actual baby.  We write “a” soundtrack rather than “the” soundtrack (though

Them Teeth ~ Sun of serpent, moone of cipher

It’s not Halloween yet, but we have our first spooky contender.  With the weather as nice as it has been lately, I had to wait for a dark, foggy, humid day to review it.  Them Teeth produces the perfect sort of

Širom ~ A Universe that Roasts Blossoms for a Horse

Two years ago, we reviewed I Can Be a Clay Snapper, from Slovenian trio Širom.  Their highly unique sound continues to be undefinable; in the same way that Dead Can Dance expanded the lines of world music, Širom challenges assumptions of
