Noorvik – Omission (Tonzonen Records)

If anyone ever mentions German instrumental bands, Long Distance Calling comes into my mind. Noorvik is a new one on me. “Omission” is their second album. We’re led to expect “dynamic arcs of suspense with progressive song structures … an… Continue Reading →

Sons of Alpha Centauri – Buried Memories (H42 Records)

Sons of Alpha Centauri – the Post Rock Scarlet Pimpernels from Kent (20 shows in 12 years – that is Darkthrone like) have released a new collection. Carrying on from last year’s Continuum, Buried Memories is a collection of mesmerizingly… Continue Reading →

Pencey Sloe – Don’t Believe, Watch Out (Prophecy)

Pencey Sloe sounds to be the name of a US private detective but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact it is a Parisian musical trio which comes with the approval of Alcest and plays dark and ethereal… Continue Reading →

PSOTY – Sunless (Candlelight Records)

Formally known as Pet Slimmers Of the Year, the far pithier PSOTY return from a lengthy sabbatical with this their second full length release and follow up to 2014’s ‘Fragments Of Uniforms. I already like them though hailing, as they… Continue Reading →

Parisians, Lost In Kiev, return with this their third full length effort that see’s the band step off their well-trodden path of long form epic stanzas of alt/math rock mini operas and segue into shorter more direct songs. It feels… Continue Reading →

Dronte – Quelque part entre la guerre et la lâcheté (Apathia)

Seven musicians create some sort of fusion. With a double bass and a saxophone in tow, the Beatles, Russian Circles, Napalm Death, Meshuggah and Rimsky-Korsakov are amongst many from many classical and modern pop and metal genres who get mentioned… Continue Reading →

Mono – Nowhere Now Here (Pelagic Records)

Post-rock is dead. There, I’ve said it. The genre has been creatively bleeding out for years now with repetition after repetition and a total lack of new and creative ideas, making one release sound much like every other. However, when… Continue Reading →

Zeal & Ardor + Blanket – London Electric Ballroom 2/12/18

As we hit December silly season commences and for the next couple of weeks there are multiple shows on practically every night and we aint talking pantomimes. Round the corner Terror and assorted crews are tearing The Underworld a new… Continue Reading →

Seventh Genocide – Svnth (Third I Rex)

This is a nice surprise. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. When I looked at the band photo of Seventh Genocide, I thought that these guys were way too young to be making good music. But not only did… Continue Reading →
