V/A ~ Anthology of Post Industrial Music From Balkan Region

Unexplained Sounds’ wonderful world exploration continues with a visit to the Balkan region.  The series is now up to either six or seven, depending on whether one counts Visions of Darkness, which is lacking the “Anthology” tag but was part of the first

Jeremy Bible ~ Broken Ecologies

Jeremy Bible has done it again!  Or rather, he recorded this album earlier than Human Savagery and released it later.  Broken Ecologies is another ambitious project: 30 movements spanning seven tracks across four hours. Originally a 16.2 channel AV installation, this series is now

Abby Lee Tee ~ Imaginary Friends I & II / Cohabiting Species

Nature and the imagination have kept us going during the pandemic, and Abby Lee Tee offers a bit of each on two current releases.  It’s often difficult to tell where the field recordings end and the instrumentation begins, but when woven

Shawn Feeney ~ Thin Places

Music for healing is a popular modern phrase, but the healing properties of music have been documented for millennia.  One of the earliest well-known stories is that of King Saul, who when “tortured in spirit” summoned David to play the harp.

sleepmakeswaves ~ these are not your dreams

We’ve gone an entire season without reviewing a post-rock album, which we suspect has never happened before.  We’ve been waiting for an album to blow us away.  Fortunately, since sleepmakeswaves has been releasing these are not your dreams as an EP trilogy, we’ve been

Kaboom Karavan ~ The Log and the Leeway

The Log and the Leeway is one of the most unusual albums we’ve received this year, from one of the most unusual artists.  But where other artists come across as weird and off-putting, Kaboom Karavan (also known as Bram Bosteels) comes across as

Rival Consoles ~ Articulation

2020’s cavalcade of top summer releases continues with Rival Consoles‘ Articulation, the follow-up to 2018’s remarkable Persona.  This summer is unlike any we can remember, as many artists prefer to wait until fall; but we need it now, and we’re grateful. As befits

Dmitry Evgrafov ~ Surrender

We’ve been fans of Moscow’s Dmitry Evgrafov from the very start, when he released Lying on Your Shoulder in a cardboard sleeve with tuck-in flap.  From there he’s gone from strength to strength; Comprehension of Light is one of ACL’s top modern composition albums of the
