Hauschka ~ A Different Forest

Over the years, we’ve come to know Hauschka (Volker Bertelmann) as a master of the prepared piano.  Recent works have seen him expand to full orchestration.  But this year, he’s stripping it all back for an album of solo piano, unadorned.  The

Long Hallways ~ Close Your Eyes to Travel

Oregon quintet Long Hallways calls itself “an eclectic post-rock band,” and we agree.  The band incorporates not only other genres, but other instruments on their third album, inviting guest musicians on violin and sax ~ this in addition to the pre-existing cello,
