Often the Thinker ~ Greatest Possible Tenderness

San Diego is known for morning fog and afternoon sun, pleasant dispositions and easy-moving traffic.  The city is colorful and vibrant, and has produced a post-rock band to match.  Often the Thinker‘s brass section may be its not-so secret strength,

Francesco Giannico ~ Les Mondes Imaginaires

Galya Bisengalieva ~ EP Two

Boomkat is right.  If you’re subscribed to Boomkat’s mailing list, you’ve likely read the glowing review of Galya Bisengalieva‘s EP Two.  But as Boomkat’s intent is to sell records, should we trust the site’s exuberance?  In this case, yes. The Kazakh/British violinist
