Minos : S/T

“NARRATIVE MUSIC FOR LUNATIC PEOPLE” This is the bold-faced, all caps mission statement that hits you head on when listening to Minos’ self-titled album on their Bandcamp page. That’s not a statement to take lightly, folks. And while I wouldn’t label listeners that dig this album lunatics, I would definitely say it’s narrative music. The […]

Martin Rude & Jakob Skøtt Duo’s ‘The Discipline Of Assent’ Arrives August 7th; Listen To “A New Arrival”

New album announcements are pretty hard to come by these days, and vinyl releases even more so.

Michael Dugan’s ‘Mausoleum’

Spoiler Alert!!!  As we roll well into the third month of social distancing and pandemic loneliness there’s one thing I’ve realized: I don’t take advantage of my Shudder subscription nearly enough. I mean, I’ve had it since November of 2018. I grabbed it first and foremost for Graham Reznick’s crazy and most-excellent Dead Wax. That […]

Fiona Apple : Fetch The Bolt Cutters

The artistic and creative trajectory of Fiona Apple was not one you could’ve predicted back in 1996 when she released her debut LP Tidal.
