Long Distance Calling

Long Distance Calling – Vienna, B72, 9/3/2018

One of the most impressive things here is public transport. It is incredibly well organized, it will virtually get you everywhere and it isn’t expensive. You can buy a ticket for 24, 48, or 72 hours and ride anywhere and… Continue Reading →

Long Distance Calling – Boundless (InsideOut)

The main subject in the paintings of 19th century German painter Casper David Friedrich is nature. If the paintings feature people, they are portrayed with their backs towards the viewer. The people appear to be contemplating nature, its vastness, its… Continue Reading →

Collapse Under the Empire – The Fallen Ones (Finaltune Records)

We are gently led into an epic soundscape. This is the duo’s sixth album of electronic post rock. The mere title “The Fallen Ones” suggests gloom and melancholy but whilst the title track has a sultry air, the progression is… Continue Reading →

Slowrun – Resonance (Dunk!Records)

The Shaking Sensations – Start Stop Worrying (Pelagic Records)

Sit back and think about it, we all love certain genres of music especially when it comes to writing album reviews about them and generally our knowledge of certain genres is far more expansive than others. However being tested and… Continue Reading →

Pigeon Toe – The First Perception (Lifeforce Records)

Simplicity and intrigue appear to surround the unusually named Pigeon Toe, if their track titles are anything to go by. “The Man with the Cat” is not a regular track name but it’s clear that this isn’t a regular band…. Continue Reading →

Toundra – II

Artist: Toundra Title: II Type: Album Label: Aloud Music The sleeve artwork of this album suggests sophistication. The pattern is Japanese in its colour and shades. In fact Toundra are from Spain. Sophistication is indeed at the heart of their… Continue Reading →
