ArcTanGent Festival 2014 Clash Guide Pt. 1

ArcTanGent Festival is only in its second year, but is already becoming one of the biggest events for post-rock, math-rock and other experimental genres.

Roundtable Review: Collapse Under the Empire – Sacrifice & Isolation

Her Name Is Calla – Navigator

I’ve been wondering if this album actually should be on this website as it probably sits just outside of our usual coverage, in terms of genre. Think of a Slowcore style Radiohead with more folky, ambient, and noise elements. For the record, I think Slowcore is a ridiculous genre name, but it does describe this […]
