Agnes Obel – Philharmonics Album Review

Thanks to sustaining crisp production throughout her latest record, Philharmonics, Agnes Obel sounds like a faerie whispering sweet nothings — and occasional sour musings — into your ear. Philharmonics is pleasant enough, but more than that, it’s patient — trumping along in a way that savors its own angelic purity, without all the trappings of...Read...

Julianna Barwick – The Magic Place Album Review

With overdubs reminiscent of Imogen Heap, “All The Way” by Nightlands seems like a musical collage — layers and layers of the phrase, “All the way,” work with occasional sprinklings of notes. The video is similarly a low-budget collage, with faces morphing in and out of each other and very little in-between. Directed by Audrey...Read...

Midday Veil – Eyes All Around Album Review

One of the more profound conclusions I’ve arrived at over the last several years involves acknowledging the hyper-potency emanating forth from works of art heavily influenced by various, yet seemingly disparate, spiritual disciplines. Rather than relying on a single monotheistic dogma, I’ve found that taking in the writings of say, Grant Morrison, or the films...Read...

BATHS – “Lovely Bloodflow” Music Video

Wow, what a beautiful video by anticon. artists BATHS. This video combines the brutality found in Japanese samurai films with an almost Venetian carnival quality to create a video that treats the ephemeral in just a really remarkable way. Directed by Alex Takacs and Joe Nankin — youngreplicant.com
