Flying Saucer Attack takes elements of traditional shoegazing and turns it into stargazing.
It’s just a waste of talent when the extraordinary is ruined by the preposterous.
Five Style’s musical hyperactivity makes for an interesting, albeit exhausting listen.
Cat Power used to be one of those bands that I lumped in with “all the rest of the indie crap that’s not drone.”
Ends up sounding like someone has spent way too much time locked up in their bedroom with a couple of analog synths.
There’s a great sense of intimacy and warmth here, which sounds odd compared with the often bleak and frightening sounds Caul uses.
Super slick, super sweet drum and bass that sounds like it was recorded in someone’s living room.
I could easily see Fold Zandura blowing away many of the “established” Christian “modern rock” acts.
Dance House Children sounds exactly like what you’d expect a pre-Joy Electric project to sound like.
Riddim Warfare features several MCs that freshen up what’s already a texturally diverse, rhythmically complex album.
All in all, a pleasant-sounding enough EP, but nothing that will probably blow your socks off.
The cumulative effect is the most psychedelic record I’ve heard in ages.
Evokes scenes of long-abandoned cathedrals in the wasteland, Christian ceremonies carried out in the catacombs, black-robed monks carrying out their sacred duties.
Luxury is better and stronger and this shines through.
Not many albums bring a tear to my eye because the music is so joyful and exultant (there’s that word again), but this one did.
This album takes the trip-hop sound and injects a healthy dose of 4AD into it.
I’d like to take this album on a long drive through the country with the top down, and just soaking up the spring.
I don’t know where these people get their inspiration or opus, but I just hope they keep creating works of art like this one.
I say that I’m frustrated by this album because it’s very easy for me to dismiss it, when a part of me knows I should be enraptured by it.
