[Music] JOHN 3:16 – Sinner’s Prayer

  Wave after wave of beautifully crunchy, hypnotic drone is what makes JOHN 3:16’s new release (a reissue from 2011, apparently), a 30-minute affair, so appealing.

[Music] James Hill + Santiago Fradejas – Requiem

Santiago’s guitar compositions can be explosive at times, but this more subdued, but intense performance couples beautifully with the trumpeting of James Hill, a brand new name for …
