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.” […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
Fresh off a collaboration with Serengeti (and my favorite album of last year), Yoni Wolf and the other guys in WHY? are at it again. Their latest release, Moh Lhean, shows a more muted sensibility that still brings the heft and gravitas of Mumps etc. and Alopecia. Moh Lhean moves away from the avant stream of consciousness style […]
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard cannot sit still. Just 10 months after their last album, Nonagon Infinity, the Australian group has released another album, Flying Microtonal Banana (and word on the street is they have five more album slated for 2017). So while we were all doing frivolous things–like “eating” or “sleeping”–these guys were in the studio […]
