DAMN., Kendrick

There’s a temptation for any artist who achieves success to repeat what works, not so with Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, DAMN.. Ditching the live band and heavily jazz and funk influenced sound of To Pimp A Butterfly and untitled unmastered, DAMN. burns through its 55 minutes with an intensity that is lyrical and physical. The album begins properly with “DNA.” […]

Animals As Leaders Go Weightless

As far as progressive metal is concerned, Animals As Leaders are making some of the most interesting and brutal songs this side of Between The Buried and Me. The instrumental three piece’s discography is full of quick moving, angular leads and baffling time changes. Any time I put one of their records on, I find […]

Get on Elektrac!

It’s been a great for jazz releases lately. Thundercat’s monsterous epic, Drunk, hit the shelves, Chris Hazelton’s Boogaloo 7′s Soul Jazz Fridays is holding down the local jazz game, and The Bad Plus is making pop jazzy again. But the jazz/funk/electronic hybrid record that caught my ear and would not let go is Shobaleader One‘s Elektrac. Finding […]

Junius’ Latest Accrues Light

Junius‘ latest release, Eternal Rituals for The Accretion of Light, is a juggernaut. Collaging together metallic riffs, electronic textures, pummeling blast beats, and soaring vocals, the Boston based quartet has created a proggy masterpiece. Taking equally from Deafheaven’s Sunbather and Tool’s Aenima, Eternal Rituals for The Accretion of Light is a tour de force through the darkest reaches of […]

Shadow Band Loves The Wilderness

Shadow Band‘s first full length combines folk, psych, indie pop, and that certain sixties flair that makes their tones warm and their melodies full of hooks. Wilderness of Love is equal parts Comus, The Beatles, The Animals, and Temples–its melding of styles creates a listen that is as cohesive as it is surprising. Shadow Band […]

London O’Connor Circles the Triangle

There’s something rough and entirely genuine about London O’Connor‘s debut album, O∆ (pronounced Circle Triangle). The album is centered around uber-catchy bedroom pop with hip hop currents and ambient textures. In other words, O∆ is the perfect album for the exploratory feeling that hangs to springs emerging coattails. The album opens with “OATMEAL.” Feeling like undiscovered gem from […]
