Fanfare For The Uncommon Man: The Official Keith Emerson Tribute Concert

This live album wasn’t just an event with an incredible line-up, but a family occasion to have Keith’s legacy go full circle.

Glume – The Internet

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.

Various Artists – Brown Acid The Twelfth Trip

Brown Acid: The Twelfth Trip is almost devoid of such duds, and in that manner represents a feat in itself.

Sam Genovese – SKYMYTH

Genovese’s ‘SKYMYTH’ is certainly demanding, but ultimately a rewarding listen for all those who think their music should be thought-inspiring too.

Art d’Ecco – In Standard Definition

There’s no dilemma about one thing. In Standard Definition is an excellent album.

Spectral Lore – Ετερόφωτος

It’s incredibly nuanced, sometimes strange and certainly unorthodox and perhaps bordering on the exotic at times… all reasons to thoroughly praise this release.

Big | Brave – Vital

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.

POLA – Opaque

The atmosphere it generates is so complete and instant it’s like entering a different place.

1st Base Runner – Seven Years of Silence

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.

Field Music – Flat White Moon

It’s joyous, fun, surreal, and ready to go.

Xiu Xiu – OH NO

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.

Matthew E. White & Lonnie Holley – Broken Mirror: A Selfie Reflection

Listening to Broken Mirror: A Selfie Reflection, a name of an album by Gabor Szabo, a legendary guitarist comes to mind – Spellbinder. That good.

Balmorhea – The Wind

The Wind presents a natural flow of ideas in music, that says more about nature than a few thousand words. Excellent!

Taman Shud – S/T

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.

Warish – Next To Pay

For those seeking high octane speed thrills of grunge punk metal fury then look no further than Warish and ‘Next To Pay’. Play loud!

Liquid Tension Experiment – LTE3

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.
