[Music] Virus (Italy) – Eudaimonia

This was a very pleasant surprise.  Virus is, perhaps, not the best choice of band name only because there are so many great bands (including a legendary Austrian one I whose album I was listening to today) who share the monicker, but because it is about as far away from the music as possible. The […]

[Music] Rachel’s – The Sea And The Bells [Full Album]

The first time I remember hearing this was at Aron’s Records, and I couldn’t quite wrap my mind what genre this album was.  I suppose Rachel’s could be seen as a precursor to post-rock or a lot of the modern classical music coming from labels like Erased Tapes.  This album remains gorgeous listening.

[Music] Christopher Bissonnette – The Wine Dark Sea — music won’t save you

Tristan Eckerson/ Thomas Méreur/ Cedric Vermue / Plinki Plonki/ — Drifting, Almost Falling.

Since […] […]

[Music] Witnesses – III

Although seeing this listed as doom metal in the tags, it seems that the brilliant album by the New York-based group Witnesses is more cinematic in nature. The cover art, from a dark, foggy Gotham City-esque setting, gives you a great idea as to what kind of music you should be in for, and this […]
