Roadside Monument’s music is instantly accessible, but has enough depth, intensity, and emotion to keep me coming back.
Probably one of most challenging things that Tooth and Nail Records has ever released.
Listening to Roadside Monument becomes educational and challenging, while remaining emotional.
There’s something tragic and disturbingly violent that keeps this from being just another chopsocky flick.
An understated little gem that deserves far more notice than it’s ever likely to receive.
Hearing familiar songs get twisted into sometimes wonderful new shapes makes “I Might Be Wrong” worthwhile.
Haunting soundscapes that conjure up misty beaches, abandoned lighthouses, and hulking shipwrecks.
Aida will gently settle around you like nice, thick blanket, coaxing you to bed but never boring you to sleep.
I am interested to hear where they take this polished brand of sound on the full-length.
4 discs might seem like a little much for any band, but given Dead Can Dance’s diverse, extensive catalog, it feels just about right.
Blood: The Last Vampire is a visually stunning, haunting animation whose only real weakness is that, well, it doesn’t really have much of plot.
Anna Magdalena is about unrequited love, but I don’t need song and dance numbers and a subpar adventure story to reinforce that.
Halou’s sophomore album is another lovely blend of harsh electronica and 4AD-esque vocals.
This gentle instrumental music is tinged with feelings of regret and melancholy.
A diverse array of musical styles anchored by John Grant’s rich voice and heartbreaking lyrics.
