Loscil: Monument Builders

Monument Builders is a tribute to those who have sought to make grand artistic statements in their medium of choice, and Scott Morgan subverts this concept by adhering to a minimalist script.

Horseback: A Plague of Knowing

Odds-and-sods compilations are a tough proposition, for sure, but if you’re able to crack their code, much like the one surrounding Horseback, you’ll find a wealth of excess, a musical cup overflowing with ideas, vitality, and energy, always on its way towards becoming something else, something greater.

Boris: Präparat

While Boris could be playing in a whole other genre in their future releases, Präparat, a highly limited vinyl-only release, is a concise, well-structured LP that brings a little bit of everything that makes this band great to the table.

Switchblade: Switchblade (2012)

Switchblade [2012] drips with a syrupy, devilish disposition, and the glacial space between notes plays as strong a role as the thickness of tone -- which, as it happens, is ladled on with staggeringly heavy relish.

Nadja: Dagdrom

Dagdrøm is definitely Nadja's most luminescent album, but it’s not a radical change in direction. Much of it is par for the droning and sludgy course, which is not a bad thing.

Music

High Aura'd: Sanguine Futures

Much like recent releases from Thomas Köner and Locrian/Christoph Heemann, High Aura'd's Sanguine Futures worms it way beneath the skin, luring you in with its bewitching tapestries.
