ACL 2020 ~ Pandemic Playlist

Time is an unusual construct.  The pandemic made spring feel like an entire year.  Yet the year is only half over.  Or is it already half over?  It depends on where we live.  The pandemic has mostly passed in some places

Blind Cave Salamander ~ The Svalbard Suite / Ecker & Meulyzer ~ Carbon / Glåsbird ~ Svalbarð

Great minds think alike, or perhaps it’s just coincidence ~ but three albums about Svalbarð have been released in a short span of time, including two in a ten-day span.  Each occupies a different genre, and brings something unique to the table.

Emanuele Errante ~ This World

The cover to Emanuele Errante’s latest project risks— yet subverts— a hamfisted explanation of the record’s symbolic contents. Bristling, bare tree branches stick out above four rigid, brutalist structures, as if to tell us point-blank that our world, this world,

Valotihkuu ~ Fragile Melodies

The new summer-themed album from Cherepovets musician Valotihkuu is so endearing that it sent us in search of his earlier works.  Whitelabrecs writes that it signed the Russian artist after falling in love with last year’s Spring And All.  When we looked up
