YoshimiO / Susie Ibarra / Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe ~ Flower of Sulphur

There’s something doubly poetic about the term Flower of Sulphur: on one hand, there’s the striking association between sulphur as integral to certain repellent smells and a flower, and on the other hand, there’s the chemical meaning, which refers to

Keiji Haino & SUMAC ~ American Dollar Bill – Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On

There’s perhaps a common thread to the overtly poetic names of the tracks in Keiji Haino & SUMAC’s collaboration, a thread that intertwines anger and passion in that characteristically playful Haino way, in which a measure of silliness opens up

ACL 2017 ~ Top Ten Experimental

This may be where music is headed ~ but then again, maybe not.  These artists are iconoclastic in their approach to sound.  From radio waves to distortion, puppetry to improvisation, they blaze their own trails, and those who can’t keep

SAICOBAB ~ Sab Se Purani Bab

When noise legend YoshimiO joined up with fellow Japanese musician Yoshida Daikiti’s project PSYCHOBABA in the early 2000’s, they decided to change the name to SAICOBABA. Phonetically, it’s still the same word, but then the meaning changed radically, from something

ACL 2016: The Top 20 Albums of the Year

The last album we reviewed this year ended up being the best ~ in light of the title, a fitting end.  Our cover image is taken from its lead video; the actress seems to be giving the album a closer listen.

ACL 2016: Top Ten Rock and Post-Rock

As autumn approached, we were worried; where were all the good rock and post-rock albums?  But at the end of the year, they entered in a flurry.  What began as a disappointing year turned out to be incredibly solid ~

ACL 2016: Top Ten Experimental

Here’s our fun section; few will be able to predict the contents. Haunted ballrooms, washing machines, stuttered poetry and mythological black dogs all find their place under the experimental umbrella.  Some people may call this “different” or “difficult” music; we
