yndi halda – A Sun-Coloured Shaker

You wait nine years and two yndi halda records come along at once! Well, in just under two years. Their fascinating new EP acts as an epilogue, the dawn after the previous album’s day, offering another glimpse at their beautifully reformed vision.


Post-Metal veterans Larry Herweg (Pelican) & Ben Carr’s (5ive) collaborative debut EP ‘I’ is a thunderous juggernaut, speeding across a sprawling landscape in the searing desert heat. It’s heavy, bleak and awesome.

Alderaan – Infinite Paths

An excellent, epic Post-Rock EP from newcomers Alderaan.

Pijn – Floodlit

Pijn deliver a solid offering of post-metal, drowning moments of heartbreaking calm with punishing heaviness; a mercurial journey that digs deep into the soul and unearths the darkest emotions buried there, exposing them for all to see.

Totorro – Come to Mexico

Come to Mexico is a non-stop barrage of post-rock goodness from start to finish, blending rapid, soaring guitar sequences with carefully placed slower segments, that come together to make one of the most creative and energetic releases this year. By Jason Royle

Respire – Gravity and Grace

Powerful and poignant; Respire’s vision comes to life in their immense debut album ‘Gravity and Grace’. The orchestral ensemble weaves an emotional, desperate atmosphere that leaves a lasting impression. By Jason Royle
