Roundtable Review: Mogwai – Rave Tapes

It’s the end the month which means it’s time for our second Roundtable Review of the year. This month we’re tackling a band who damn near is bordering on legendary post-rock status at this point. Needing no real introduction, this month we’re excited to examine Mogwai’s latest effort “Rave Tapes” , which saw a January […]

Winds With Hands – (untitled) **Must Listen**

Reviewed by: Shanexedge By this point, anyone that is even remotely well-versed in post-rock/post-metal is aware that Russia is steadily turning out a staggering amount of great bands (see the recent review of the newest Show Me A Dinosaur album on here as proof). Even with the internet being the Great Spreader of Things, there’s […]

Wander – Mourning

Reviewed by: Foofer Overall, “Mourning” is an album that’s easy to get into, and even easier to fall in love with. Right away they introduce themselves with a roaring hello, and then just as quickly as it started, the roaring becomes a whisper. From then on, I was hooked. I’ve been listening to this album […]

When Icarus Falls – Circles

Reviewed by Erich Heider It’s fitting to me that this band calls themselves When Icarus Falls. If you remember the Greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus, an imprisoned father and son used wax and feathers to make wings to escape their lofty incarceration. It worked out for dad, but Icarus, in a bit of hubris, […]

Cleft – Bosh!

Reviewed by Foofer I tend to judge a math rock album based on how much it makes me think while I’m listening to it. If I were to listen to “Bosh!” enough, I think I might come up with the cure for cancer. The way they shift from one time signature to the next is […]

Cinématique – Limbo

Reviewed by Shanexedge Gather ’round, readers. This is a story of a band from Vienna, Austria, and a video game created by a Danish company. There’s technically no connection, just that the newest album by the former (the 4 piece Cinématique) was inspired by the latter – both are named Limbo, and the atmosphere present […]

Lo There I Do See My Brother – Of The Earth, Beneath The Sea

Reviewed by Foofer When I first heard Lo’ There I Do See My Brother’s debut album “With Eyes Open, We Fall on Our Swords”, I was absolutely floored. 11 months later, they release a 7″ EP called “Of The Earth, Beneath The Sea” and it’s quite a big step in a different direction from post-rock […]
