Dave Phillips ~ Rise

Rise is an abrasive, enthralling, uncompromising work, designed for the hardiest listeners.  It’s hard to imagine that this is the same Dave Phillips who just released a placid set of South African nature recordings.  But yes ~ this is the yang to that yin. This set

Matt Parker ~ The People’s Cloud (Original Soundtrack)

Senator Ted Stevens may have accomplished a lot as a politician, but he is best remembered for calling the internet “a series of tubes.”  Fast-forward to 2017, and our digital storage is now in “the cloud,” which has certainly caused

Anders Brørby ~ Mulholland Drive, 1984 / Phoenix Down

2016 was a prolific year for Anders Brørby, who began the year with Nihil (one of our Top Ten Drone Albums of 2016), followed it up with a split release on Land Animal Tapes, and topped off the year with this pair

Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche ~ Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much

Montreal’s Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche is ironically billed as a “stripped down quartet,” as the sound of their second album is as raucous as their first.  The album begins with a boom and never lets up; it’s a non-stop jam that

Throwing Snow ~ Embers

Ross Tones (Throwing Snow) has just released the best set of his young and evolving career.  The only problem is it may be hard to top.  The key fact: Embers is mixed as a continuous set, and like the circle displayed on the cover, connects
