Arms And Sleepers – Matador Album Review

The lead-in to Arms And Sleepers’ new disc, Matador, is only a little over a minute, but it does what it’s supposed to. In just that short time period, it wordlessly sets the stage for the rest of the disc, with twinkling keys pricking in and out of the background and strings gliding over its...Read...

Russian Circles – Geneva Album Review

The instrumental, post-rock landscape is a bit crowded as of late. But in just three albums, the Chicago/Seattle trio Russian Circles have cemented themselves at the top, and this fact is readily apparent in their fantastic new album, Geneva. Russian Circles have always bounced between the moments that recall sunshine and the moments that recall...Read...

Firekites – The Bowery Album Review

The Australian band Firekites are reminiscent of Kings of Convenience, and maybe Elliott Smith, though without the infective pop sensibilities. In short, they make the kind of music to get you through a Sunday afternoon, but without the risk of getting the words stuck in your head. Through woozy, instrument-driven pop, their debut album, The...Read...

The Color Turning – Good Hands Bad Blood Album Review

Rarely has one adjective so adequately described a piece of music more than the word “moody” describes The Color Turning’s debut LP, Good Hands Bad Blood. If you are able to move pass the beginning track, “Slow as Passing Cars,” with appropriately slow meandering guitars lines and minimal, borderline whiney vocals, building into grandiose orchestrations,...Read...

Mount Eerie – Wind’s Poem Album Review

Phil Elverum of ex-Microphone’s fame is one of those artists who has garnered enough legitimate respect throughout his music-making career that when he says something rather off the wall — such as how the decidedly not-black metal whatsoever project of Mount Eerie is going to make a black metal album — well, you just have...Read...

Oneida – Rated O Album Review

There are certain artists throughout history that insist their art extends forth into the world from another dimension of consciousness lurking just below surface level awareness. To create, all they need to do shut off their regular thought patterns and dip into this infinite wellspring; they funnel a source of unlimited energy into the mold...Read...

Oneida – Preteen Weaponry Album Review

I’ll admit it; I had no intentions of ever purchasing another Oneida disc. I love the band and would rank them as one of the country’s premiere psychedelic acts, but with eight full lengths (of which I own six), I pretty much figured I’d heard their entire bag of tricks. Their last album, 2006’s Happy...Read...
