Bruno Bavota ~ Apartment Songs & Apartment Loops

One of my punishments as a child was being sent to my room, but I didn’t mind, because that’s where my books and records were.  During the recent pandemic, many musicians have had to stay at home, but that’s okay

Inventions ~ Continuous Portrait

Continuous Portrait is the sonic version of recessive genes.  This is not the type of album one might expect from an ambient artist (Matthew Cooper) and part of a post-rock band (Explosions in the Sky’s Mark T. Smith). But it makes

Field Works ~ Ultrasonic

Bats are not very popular right now.  They’ve received an inordinate amount of blame for the coronavirus, which was not their fault; and as a result, we feel kind of sorry for them.  Thankfully, we’re able to make up for

ACL 2019 ~ Top Ten Modern Composition

Some of the year’s most ambitious projects are found in this category, crisscrossing the globe from the history of Appalachia to the future of Australia.  Visual poems tell deep stories; singers connect to folklore and spirit.  And everywhere, there are

ACL 2019 ~ The Year’s Best Album Covers

The competition was tough this year, but we’ve been able to whittle our selection down to ten.  These album covers made us want to hear the music, and even if the music wasn’t much good (don’t worry, it was), we

Rachel Grimes ~ The Way Forth

Every once in a while, an artist puts so much love and effort into a project that it glows.  The Way Forth is one of these projects.  A patchwork quilt of music, letters, song and film, Rachel Grimes‘ multi-media release tackles multiple

Bruno Bavota ~ Get Lost

Romantic composer Bruno Bavota continues to evolve on his latest album.  We have always known the pianist as a warm, happy individual, seemingly untouched by the world.  But recent societal shifts have grown so bad they have affected his outlook.  And if

Floating Spectrum ~ A Point Between

A Point Between is a perfect example of intermingling disciplines.  Abe Pazos’ remarkable cover draws us in, creating intrigue before a single note is played.  The music of Floating Spectrum (Mei-Fang Liau) sounds exactly like the art, or vice versa: swirling, generative, open
