Spurv – Myra (Fysisk Format)

Spurv – Myra (Fysisk Format)

‘Myra’ is the follow up to Norwegian post rockers Spurv’s debut album ‘Skarntyde’ – the band have spent three years crafting this record and, with guest performances from Ulver’s Tore Ylvisaker and Ole Aleksander Halstensgård, ‘Myra’ boasts a huge amount of promise. Like their previous.. Read More

Dreamarcher – Harding (Indie)

I have no idea what is going on here. Not really. Oslo band Dreamarcher are a completely new name to me. This short EP is apparently a concept EP about the town Harding and its history, particularly around industrialisation. Most significantly though there is a.. Read More

Chelsea Wolfe – Hiss Spun (Sargent House)

There’s something about Chelsea. Something strange, sinister and utterly beguiling, something that makes you easily envisage her singing a dark ode at the end scenes in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks bar room. It’s a place where her haunting tones would fit right in but it.. Read More

Guitarist Gustav Almberg has commented that “I guess.. Read More
Slowrun – Resonance (Dunk!Records)

Slowrun – Resonance (Dunk!Records)

I had the pleasure of reviewing Slowrun’s evocative debut album “Prologue” about three years ago. Instrumental works are not everyone’s preference, but “Prologue”’s collection of progressive ambient post rock pieces did what music does so well and planted vivid images in my mind without the..

Latitudes – Old Sunlight (Debemur Morti)

If you live in or around London and attend gigs on a regular basis, then Latitudes will have becoming a steady part of you gig going diet for the last seven years or so. The band’s initial release was instrumental EP ‘Bleak Epiphanies in Slow.. Read More
