cétieu ~ Into the Light

Into the Light is a sanctuary for soft colors. Peach, vanilla, cinnamon, the whitest of white chocolate; cétieu (Poland’s Tekla Mrozowicka) has already made our end-of-year lists and she is now one of Europe’s leading lights. Her music isn’t tainted in any way, shape

Forest Management ~ Sky Image / The Contemplative Life

Cleveland’s John Daniel is Forest Management, a prolific ambient artist whose latest two releases were released in the same week.  Played back-to-back, they form a diptych that stretches purposefully from early winter to early spring. One of the aspects of forest

3+ ~ Your Small Story

Your Small Story begins as humbly as its title.  The art is unassuming, and for the first few minutes, the album dabbles in an unremarkable ambience.  But at the 3:04 mark, everything changes.  Strings transform the placid opener “Heaven of the

ACL 2012: Top Ten Rock & Post Rock

Rock, Post-Rock, Folk & Jazz is an umbrella category that is dominated by, but not exclusive to post-rock.  As evidenced by this year’s incredibly diverse selection, the old horse seems to have no intention of lying down any time soon.

Sima Kim ~ Songs

Sima Kim’s album comes with the unimaginative title Songs, probably because he has for the first time added vocals to his minimal ambient compositions.  The song titles of the two original tracks in this ep are simply “I” and “II” but

Bengalfuel ~ Roeblin

The latest effort from Bengalfuel is quiet, slow, and unrelentingly sad.  When I’ve been sad, it’s been sad with me, restrained and unassuming, an attentive companion.  But when I’ve been happy, it’s still been sad, threatening to bring me down,
