Foofer Friday: Glaswegians – Glaswegians

These past few weeks have been absolutely crazy for me. I just started writing for Echoes and Dust, which is how I found this band, Glaswegians. I must admit, I was a bit disappointed when I found out that the band Glaswegians wasn’t actually from Glasgow. This misleading band hails from British Columbia. Sneaky hosers. […]

Foofer Friday: The Wax Girl – Anosmic EP

There are some times when you and an album just click. The Wax Girl’s debut EP ‘Anosmic’ really struck a chord within me, and I just can’t get enough of it. It’s been on repeat for the past week. This magnificent Canadian band has crafted something extraordinary. Unlike most other post-rock bands, the guitar doesn’t […]

Foofer Friday: Wang Wen – Eight Horses

15 years, and 8 albums. This is the mark of a truly impressive band, by anyone’s standards. Wang Wen, China’s largest Post-Rock band, just celebrated their 15th year together as a band by releasing their 8th album, Eight Horses. I know I’ve already mentioned this album in passing in my Sundry Commentary article, but I […]

Foofer Friday: Ranges – Solar Mansions

It’s hard to believe that in a small town like Bozeman, there’s more than one talented band dipping their toes in the post-rock scene. And yet, here I am to tell you about Ranges. They’ve been around since 2012, but haven’t released anything until earlier this year, with their “AB SA RO KA” EP (Which […]

Foofer Friday: Nathaniel Noton-Freeman – Cloud Machines

(Just so you guys know, everything I’m about to say is completely biased. That being said, take everything from here on with a grain of salt.) I’ve been listening to Nathaniel Noton-Freeman’s music ever since he posted Whorl on reddit over two years ago. To say that he’s progressed wouldn’t be entirely accurate. He’s had […]

Foofer Friday: The Echelon Effect – “Pacific”

  Reviewed by: Foofer A band that isn’t brand new, with more than one album to call their own? How exciting! … right? The Echelon Effect has been around a bit longer than most of the bands I’ve reviewed, having started in 2009. Since then they’ve been churning out music like a machine. “Pacific” is […]

Roundtable Review: Collapse Under the Empire – Sacrifice & Isolation

Postrockstar is no stranger to Collapse Under the Empire and you probably shouldn’t be either. The post-rock powerhouse duo from Germany have released either an album or EP in each year dating back to 2009 show no signs of letting up. ‘Sacrifice & Isolation’ is their fifth studio album an is the follow up to  […]

Foofer Friday: Astralia – ‘Atlas’

Reviewed by: Foofer Since I’ve started writing these reviews, I’ve looked at music from very different parts of the world. Italy to Denmark, San Francisco to New York, Canada to Montreal… …wait a minute. Anyways, today we’ve got Spain’s representative, Astralia. A wonderful trio from La Floresta, which is about an hour and a half […]

Foofer Friday: Sundry Commentary

As much as I love dedicating my whole week to one album (which is a lot), I still listen to an assortment of other bands from an assortment of different genres. So I figure that every once in a while I could talk about a bunch of albums, just to shake things up. These aren’t […]
