[Music] Mental Architects – Ascend

I wish to thank my friend Peter Delchev for introducing me to a brilliant math-rock band out of Bulgaria called Mental Architects. I had no idea these guys were pretty much in front of my face during my recent Balkan visit. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more, and for those who book festivals, I’d …

[Music] Subact – The Dubsquad EP

I have to thank my friend Yasen Kazandjiev for quite a few upcoming reviews of some of the most intriguing music I’ve heard in some time, starting with this EP by Dresden-based band Subact. There are elements of bands like Ozric Tentacles and other psychedelic prog groups as well as sample work reminiscent of Front …

[Music] Edward Ka-Spel – High On Station Yellow Moon

Though I loathe that I can’t simply buy a download from Edward Ka-Spel (too many of his latest Bandcamp releases are truncated version so that you’re forced to buy a hard copy, be it vinyl or CD), that’s his prerogative. The music is up to the standards one expects from the Legendary Pink Dots‘ frontman.

[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. The guitar playing is so heavily textured that you feel like a sonic blanket has wrapped you up, making you forget, albeit temporarily, the vagaries of the world.  Drone …

[Music] Experimental Groundbreakers Controlled Bleeding Straddle the Primal and Cerebral

Controlled Bleeding were among the greatest of the post-Industrial acts the United States ever produced.  Bandcamp does a great job letting Paul Lemos speak of the band’s history, development, the loss of members Chris Moriarty and Joe Papa, and his future plans.

[Music] Fatal Casualties – Filter

Dutch label Seja Records graces us with a magnificent new release by Swedish neofolkers Fatal Casualties. It’s amazing to thing that Stefan Ljungdahl and Ivan Hirvonen have been performing off and on as Fatal Casualties for 30 years now, as the current release is perhaps the freshest, most vibrant music they’ve put out in more …
