[Music] Raphael Weinroth-Browne – Worlds Within

Ladies and gentlemen, I have to be admit to being a bit thrilled to mention this release.  Some time ago, I reviewed a band called Flying Hórses, a band Raphael Weinroth-Browne was a member of, and whose stunning work on the cello made the album so memorable for me. On January 24, he will release […]

[Music] As JK Flesh, Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick Finds Peace In Solitude and Techno

Justin Broadrick should be a name very familiar to you if you were ever a fan of Napalm Death, Jesu, or my two personal favorites from his oeuvre, Godflesh and Techno-Animal.  Bandcamp Daily references his newest material (which has sat around, in some cases, for nearly two decades), JK Flesh. Brilliant material!

[Music] Psychic Dose – Maleficium Volume 1: Death of the Sorcerer

I’m not the biggest metal-head in the world, but this release by Psychic Dose is cueing off of the best of the metal I did manage to enjoy in my youth. Though one could classify them as a doom metal band, they also show off influences from bands like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Budgie, […]

[Music] Silent Island – Stormvalley

I want to thank István Csarnogurszky, guitarist of Silent Island and musician in several amazing post-rock bands, for this new little gem of an album.

[Music] Expo ’70 – Awakening

There are so many good neo-krautrock and neo-psychedelic bands that it’s almost impossible to keep up with them. It seems a new one comes out every day, and the quality is consistently great. Take Expo ’70, a band out of Kansas. They tie together Krautrock with a minimalist aesthetic that balances out very well.

[Music] Leila Abdul-Rauf – Diminution

The first time I came across San Francisco, California resident Leila Abdul-Rauf’s name was when she was playing with the all-female avant-garde metal/dark ambient band Amber Asylum.  She has become a far more powerful musician as time has passed (if you know anything about her previous work, that’s very high praise), and, given the brutal darkness of […]
