Aaron Edwards lives in Boise, Idaho, working as a caregiver for children with special needs.He is happily married, has one child (so far), and a very annoying cat. He’s hopelessly in love with Post-Rock, Post-Metal, Math Rock, and some bits of Doom Metal and Shoegaze.As long as it is without vocals, he’s good. The quickest way to send him into a rage is to use the phrase “When do the words start?”

Pray For Sound – Everything is Beautiful

Pray For Sound established themselves in an incredibly firm fashion after the release of their last album, Dreamer. After Everything is Beautiful, I am positive that they will cement themselves as giants of the genre. By Aaron Edwards

Clouds Taste Satanic – Dawn Of The Satanic Age

Overall it’s a great album, and I really do enjoy it a lot. I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss the post-rock influences in their sound, but this new direction seems to be working for them. Loud as hell, soul-crushingly heavy, and thoroughly enjoyable. – By Aaron Edwards

pg.lost – Versus

Please don’t let me sway you from listening to this monster of an album, there are a lot of great things to be heard. It’s a remarkable technical achievement and it deserves recognition. – By Aaron Edwards

Red Hands Black Feet – We Must Fall Forever If We Survive

Making a conceptual post-rock album centered around space has been increasingly popular, almost to the point where it’s getting old. But before that’s happened, someone has to nail the space theme so perfectly so we can move on to another subject. In my opinion, that time has come. By Aaron Edwards

If These Trees Could Talk – The Bones of a Dying World

They haven’t changed a thing between albums, and it saddens me immeasurably. It’s the most beautiful letdown of my life. – By Aaron Edwards

Release The Long Ships – Holocene

Carefully planned, thoughtfully constructed, and expertly executed. There are certain advantages to collaborating with one’s self, and Kapiller takes full advantage of them. Everything flows together and syncopates beautifully. By Aaron Edwards

After Osmosis – What Do You See When You Dream? – Review & Exclusive Album Stream

This album is a cautious but good step forward in the right direction. They’re trying earnestly to find their place in post-rock, and I like where that’s headed. By Aaron Edwards

Stuck In November – First Slice Of Cake

If you’re ever looking for an album to listen to from beginning to finish during your commute to work, this is it. It’s short but sweet, high quality production, and maintains a steady grip of your attention throughout the album. I highly recommend this album to anyone who has a critical or discerning ear towards music. By Aaron Edwards

Explosions In The Sky – The Wilderness

This was an earnest attempt to renew their sound, and they did exactly that. I just don’t think I care for what happened to their sound. The album as a whole is done remarkably well, and I applaud their efforts. Overall, this has been one heck of an emotional roller coaster, and for now I’ve got to get off of it before I lose my lunch. I’m sure I’ll come back again to take it for another spin every now and again, and I will most certainly enjoy it. By Aaron Edwards

Wander – Mourning (Reissue)

It’s a perfect addition to any post-rock playlist that you’d make, and they deserve all the praise in the world for their efforts; they made a good album. By Aaron Edwards

Review & Exclusive Album Stream: Cold, Cold Heart – How The Other Half Live and Die

There’s beauty in the quiet, and Cold, Cold Heart have found it and exhibited it expertly. For once, I would recommend playing this album quietly. By Aaron Edwards

Coronal Mass Ejection – EP

Coronal Mass Ejection aren’t making it easy for new bands. Having formed just last year, releasing such a strong EP shortly thereafter cruelly raises the bar for everyone else. By Aaron Edwards

RANGES – The Gods of the Copybook Headings

I love this album. I love Ranges. I’m afraid to call this the culmination of their talent, because I’m sure they will only get better. By Aaron Edwards

Interview & live review: Red Hands Black Feet

“Right now we’re trying to just make it sustain itself. It doesn’t have to pay all of our bills, but if could not cause us to haemorrhage money the way it has in the past, then I think that would be great for us” – Eric Larson from Red Hands Black Feet talks to Foofer about life in a post rock band in Boise, Idaho.

Lymbyc Systym – Split Stones

Overall, this album has superb grooves, beats you can’t help but nod to, and music that will stick with you long after the album is done. Anothyr fantastyc albym from Lymbyc Systym By Foofer

Mountains Under Oceans – Man is Not.

This EP is strong enough to survive the cliché and deliver an excellent and varied sound. By Foofer

Mono & The Ocean – Transcendental

Overall, this is a very good EP. Both pieces hold their own, and they compliment each other in their respective ways. I was hoping that at least one of the bands would present something new in their respective sounds, but both of them fell a little flat when it came to pushing the envelope. As separate singles, they’re both par for the course. As a split, it falls short of being remarkable. – By Foofer

Glaswegians – Cape Lazo

This is an album I find myself enjoying while it’s playing, and repeating to myself when it’s not. I’m sure I will cherish this magnificent album for years to come. By Foofer

Deadstar – In Between Dreams

In Between Dreams is wonderfully crafted, the production is impeccable, appropriate instrumentation throughout and it is nothing but superb. It’s quickly landed itself a place on my shortlist of 2015’s best albums. By Foofer

Cavern – Outsiders

Track after track, it becomes increasingly as to just how uninspired they are. Every breakdown, solo, riff, and drumbeat sounds like Russian Circles, except with a nearly nonexistent bassist, instead. – By Foofer
