Glume’s debut forms a sugar laden dayglo synthy dream pop record, but underneath the bright fluorescent lights there is a melancholic undertow which reveals depth.
Brown Acid: The Twelfth Trip is almost devoid of such duds, and in that manner represents a feat in itself.
Genovese’s ‘SKYMYTH’ is certainly demanding, but ultimately a rewarding listen for all those who think their music should be thought-inspiring too.
There’s no dilemma about one thing. In Standard Definition is an excellent album.
It’s incredibly nuanced, sometimes strange and certainly unorthodox and perhaps bordering on the exotic at times… all reasons to thoroughly praise this release.
Vital is one of the year’s most essential listens and Big|Brave has created a sensational album full of walls of sound and a deeply personal narrative. This is why calls for diversity in alternative music are absolutely necessary.
The atmosphere it generates is so complete and instant it’s like entering a different place.
Maybe his previous projects took time, but now that 1st Base Runner has come up with this album, he actually turns it into a home run.
It’s joyous, fun, surreal, and ready to go.
OH NO is an atmospheric and forward thinking album that cements Xiu Xiu as an outfit that are constantly pushing their music forward and with a choice selection of guest artists adding so much variation.
Listening to Broken Mirror: A Selfie Reflection, a name of an album by Gabor Szabo, a legendary guitarist comes to mind – Spellbinder. That good.
The Wind presents a natural flow of ideas in music, that says more about nature than a few thousand words. Excellent!
Overall, this collection is as excellent as any other put out by the group, but it leaves me wanting more. I guess there can never be enough of a band you really love, but I am still extremely pleased that this release exists and that I have it despite how bittersweet I find its finality.
For those seeking high octane speed thrills of grunge punk metal fury then look no further than Warish and ‘Next To Pay’. Play loud!
LTE3 is a welcoming return for the quartet by going for the jugular by unleashing some of the most intensive arrangements that has finally been brought to life.
