Jeff T. Byrd ~ Lamb Alley

Moving into a new place is fun, but can also be a little bit scary.  There are new noises to adjust to inside and out: the hum of appliances, the clanking of heaters, the creaking of boards.  One wonders if

Silent Whale Becomes A° Dream ~ Requiem

Settle in, and get ready for the long haul.  Silent Whale Becomes A° Dream offers post-rock as post-rock should be: four songs over the course of an hour, including two eighteen-minute behemoths.  The album contains all the excitement one could

Tiny Leaves ~ Notes on Belonging

We love seasonal albums: sets that reflect a certain time of year, and are released at that time.  Our last pure fall album was Himmelsrandt’s 4 Moments & Rain; this one is a worthy successor. One need look no further

Stuzha ~ Siberian Sketches II

The door squeaks and opens; the raging blizzard fills the ears.  Stuzha slams the door and heads out with his acoustic guitar, trudging through the snow, his hands growing more frozen as he walks.  At a certain point, it’s too

BJNilsen ~ Massif Trophies

BJ Nilsen is in great shape.  How do we know?  Look at these mountains.  By the end of his month-long Alpine hike, the artist learned a few lessons about difficulty, determination and perseverance, which are translated to this recording.  We hear

CoH ~ COH PLAYS EVERALL

We lead with a photo of the picture disc, a vinyl pressing so colorful and fun that it practically sells itself.  Credit Ruth Stofer for the art, which perfectly reflects the joy of the album and the roundness of its

Abby Lee Tee ~ Herbert’s Archive

We first encountered Abby Lee Tee earlier this year with the superlative riverside burrows, and we’re happy to see the artist return so quickly.  Herbert’s Archive may be a shorter work, but it’s no less scintillating.  Again the artist is underwater, playing percussion with
