Tangled Thoughts of Leaving - No Tether (Birds Robe)

Tangled Thoughts of Leaving – No Tether (Birds Robe)

What do I know about the Australian music scene? Not much, really. I know the usual suspects, but that’s about it. Listening to No Tether, the new album by the four-piece instrumental band Tangled Thoughts of Leaving, from Perth, Australia, makes me think that I.. Read More

Baptists - Beacon of Faith (Southern Lord)

Baptists – Beacon of Faith (Southern Lord)

Walking through the woods on a foggy day in autumn is somewhat uncanny. You feel like walking in a bubble, because you can’t see far. The woods are unusually quiet. The fog swallows light and sound. When my dogs lift their ears because they’ve heard.. Read More
Barst – The Endeavour (Consouling Sounds)

Barst – The Endeavour (Consouling Sounds)

Apparently this is the seventh release from Belgian collective Barst. I can’t say I know much about the first five but last album ‘The Western Lands’ went down a treat. Imaginative, experimental and with literary source going back to William S Burroughs it really enchanted.. Read More
Svalbard - It's Hard To Have Hope (Holy Roar)

Svalbard – It’s Hard To Have Hope (Holy Roar)

They sure know how to pick their bands at Holy Roar Records. Svalbard is certainly another stroke of genius. This perfect, angry, energy-laden mixture of melodic death metal, hardcore, crust punk and post-rock with female vocals and socially critical lyrics will no doubt gather a.. Read More
Charun – Mundus Cereris (Third I Rex)

Charun – Mundus Cereris (Third I Rex)

Sardinian band Charun, not to be confused with Finland’s Charon, are a post rock band. The fact that Isis’s James Plotkin mastered this album says much. After getting us firmly into the groove with a swampy start, “Malacoda” sends us into epic and emotional worlds.. Read More
Long Distance Calling - Vienna, B72, 9/3/2018

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 as long as you want... Read More

Long Distance Calling – Boundless (InsideOut)

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 force, the decay of man-made.. Read More
Onyric Joy – Tales From The First Light (MMMmusic)

Onyric Joy – Tales From The First Light (MMMmusic)

As ever, one of the great joys of this reviewing lark is hearing bands that I’d be unlikely to encounter with my normal random sweeps though the potential musical goldmine that is the internet, and having recently had helpings of Prog from France, Austria, and.. Read More
Aerolith – Aerolith & Aerolith II (Jumping High Records)

Aerolith – Aerolith & Aerolith II (Jumping High Records)

So, what is Aerolith? Care of my very amateur science background, without having to looking it up I know it’s a form of meteorite, mainly of a rocky composition. It’s also, therefore, a very appropriate name for a self-defined space-rock band, in this case an.. Read More
