Long Distance Calling – How Do We Want To Live (InsideOut)

I suppose most of you know or have at least heard of the Israeli historian and philosopher Yuval Noah Harari and his multi-discipline insights into the history of and the prospects for the human species. If you don’t know him,… Continue Reading →

Hubris – Metempsychosis (Art As Catharsis Records)

A bit of instrumental post rock from Switzerland here. From the life and death theme of this album, which revolves around a number of Greek mythological characters, there would seem to be a progressive element. The band itself has drawn… Continue Reading →

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 →

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)

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… Continue Reading →

Long-Distance Calling – Trips (Inside Out)

Germany’s Long-Distance Calling have been plying their trade for over a decade now, ploughing the furrow of their own brand of the ever-popular post-rock genre since their inception in 2006. Forgoing the more wistful, ‘telecasters with reverb set to 10’… Continue Reading →

Killbody Tuning – Hello! Welcome, So Far… (Hummus Records)

I am no stranger to the Hummus roster with the likes of Impure Wilhelmina, Coilguns, Red Kunz, NVRVD having releases in my collection, the label aims squarely at the experimental side of post rock or metal, whatever you want to… Continue Reading →

Abnormal Thought Patterns – Manipulation under Anesthesia (Lifeforce)

Ah, there’s a familiar strain here. Is that the technical prog wizardry of the Tipton brothers, they of Zero Hour and Cynthesis? It certainly is. There’s no nonsense here. I don’t have to worry about lyrics complementing or contrasting with… Continue Reading →

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 →
