Healing Hearts - Tut Hei Tang

Healing Hearts by Tut-Hei Tang (Review)

This movie has so many ideas and doesn’t know what to do with them all.
Sings Reign Rebuilder - Set Fire to Flames

Sings Reign Rebuilder by Set Fire To Flames (Review)

Like all good collaborations, something new and interesting was forged out of that which was familiar.
Enjoy Your Rabbit

Enjoy Your Rabbit by Sufjan Stevens (Review)

Sufjan Stevens displays a real knack for taking his arsenal of abstract sounds and letting them go wild without damaging his music’s integrity.
Drukqs, Aphex Twin

Drukqs by Aphex Twin (Review)

There is a great album at the heart of Drukqs. It’s just unfortunate that you have wade through two for it.

Death of a Saint - Sam Billen

Death of a Saint by Sam Billen (Review)

Each song feels perfectly, beautifully natural, an outlet for a man trying to cope with death and loss.
A Dozen Summers Against the World, Nature and Organisation

A Dozen Summers Against the World by Nature And Organisation (Review)

It vaguely reminds me of some of the Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus’ material.
Angels of the Universe - Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson, Sigur Ros

Angels of the Universe by Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, Sigur Rós (Review)

You get the feeling that, in order to truly appreciate this music, you need to see the movie.
La Jetée, Chris Marker

La Jetée by Chris Marker (Review)

When the film reaches its conclusion, it’s both a genuine shock and fitting resolution — and all the more tragic.
