Julie Byrne – Not Even Happiness LP

There does rise the occasion when you have exhausted your psyche from scouring your emotions with abrasive metal or forcing them to limp along robotically to soulless techno tones and you just need to sit down and put on an album that will hit you squarely in the feels. This one has been doing it for me lately. […]

Andrea Belfi – Alveare LP

IIKKI Books is a relatively new project from the brains behind Eilean Records that focuses on the combination of sounds & visuals — in this case, vinyl records and super slick photo books. The latest is an electro-acoustic offering from Andrea Belfi, which features drums, percussion and synthesizers that makes great use of a stereo […]

Mount Eerie – A Crow Looked At Me LP

“Nothing wise or learned, just the described experience of living through unimaginable domestic obliteration, with names and dates.” You can read up on Phil’s recent life/death experience a lot of other places, we are just here to tell you that the new Mount Eerie album is up for preorder: pwelverumandsun.com A Crow Looked At Me by […]

Tape Tuesday: Cody Yantis – Cadence Annals

Multi-instrumentalist Cody Yantis has a new imprint of his very own and he’s hit the ground running with Cadence Annals, also his very own. Presented here are sections and pieces of his artistic life molded into a collection of works that spans synth to sax, oscillator to overflow. The result is a sparse and calculated […]

Whitney – Light Upon The Lake LP

Blame it on their recent ascent to the hallowed ranks of Pitchfork’s BNM –or just the fact that Whitney hit all the key Dad Rock notes which vinyl collectors love so much – but the joyous, golden-hued debut from this group seems to already be getting scarce on our favorite analog format. If this isn’t the perfect soundtrack for ringing […]

Zach Cooper – The Sentence LP

‘The Sentence’ is a new LP of modern composition from Zach Cooper, and its pretty killer. Made up of contemporary recordings and early bedroom experiments, the record has a great nostalgic and spiritual tilt to it. Rambling guitars, synths, horns, woodwinds – all tiptoeing around, doing a great job of providing a listening experience similar […]

Tape Tuesday: Adam Basanta – A Room Listening To Itself

Usually when you think of feedback, gnarly sounds from amplifiers on a stage come to mind..but Canadian artist Adam Basanta has a more controlled take on the phenomenon. Much like the early electroacoustic recordings of the 60s, ‘A Room Listening To Itself’ is based on the feedback of microphones and speakers..but with the modern twist […]

Petre Inspirescu – Vin Ploile 2xLP

Perhaps it is the fact that previous vinyl pressings from Petre Inspirescu are so unattainable, or perhaps there is just a fetish for music from musicians whose names we cannot pronounce, but I did not hesitate for one second in placing an order for Vin Ploile. A sublime body of electronic work built up around an organic core, […]

Popol Vuh – Nosferatu The Vampyre 2xLP

For those of you who don’t wake and sleep according to the release schedule of colored vinyl soundtrack reissues, you may have missed this one: Waxwork Records have conjured up an official version of Popol Vuh’s masterful scoring of Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu The Vampyre. We managed to score a copy at Mondocon, and can attest to the quality […]

Natural Snow Buildings – Terror Horns LP

What’s not to love about the new Natural Snow Buildings record? The duo’s penchant for dark and beautiful songcraft? The celestial drones stripped of their feathers and dragged through the dirt? The Texas Chainsaw cover art aesthetic? These guys have enough kvlt to go around and then some. Terror Horns is currently on pre-order for the […]
