Roundtable Review: Moonlit Sailor – We Come From Exploding Stars

As we enter the thaw that is the end of the cold frozen months and march forward into those chilly yet bright sunny spring days, we leave winter feeling like it’s been a hell of a ride. The first three months of 2014 has seen the release of some extraordinarily great albums and definitely works […]

Martyn Jackson – Home

Reviewed by James Out of all the reviews I’ve written, the most difficult ones tend to be the albums by solo artists who choose to use their own name rather than a moniker or band name. It never quite feels like I’m reviewing the albums themselves, but rather talking to the artist directly. Regardless of […]

Larkahl – Journal

James – “Our buddies Larkahl recently sent along their press package to us and while we might have time to review this album in the future, we are so back loaded with albums that we wouldn’t be able to get to it in a timely manner. Instead we offer you the press package that was […]

Garden Party – EP II

Reviewed by Erich Sometimes it’s possible to fall in love again. I thought it wouldn’t happen after I first heard Slowdive’s ‘Just for a Day’.

Rocket Miner – Elegy

 Reviewed by Foofer Rocket Miner had been all but declared dead until recently. With nothing but a collection of demos and an EP album both released in 2011, ‘Elegy’ came out of seemingly nowhere. It almost feels like it’s their first album, but let it never be said it feels like an amateur album. I […]

Audrey Fall – Mitau

I envision big things in the future of Audrey Fall, a four-piece instrumental post-rock/metal band from Latvia. Although they’ve been around for about four years now, including a reshuffle of band members and direction, they’ve just released their debut album ‘Mitau’earlier this year.  Despite the fact that I’m writing this review independently, this is an […]
