Polish film score composer Wojciech Golczewski has made a reputation for himself as a director’s secret weapon. His scores add a depth and emotional component to the films he works on, building sonic worlds with analog sound that bring you into that cinematic landscape organically. Beyond The Gates, Tonight She Comes, We Are Still Here, […]

Birthday Boi

Today I turn 48 years old. Two years away from 50. Getting older has never really bothered me. I’ve always felt like an old person in a young person’s body anyways. Not in a Freaky Friday, Vice Versa, Like Father Like Son sort of way, but more in the Benjamin Buttons sort of way. But […]

Mastodon : Hushed and Grim

In the early 2000s there was a new, exciting voice in the heavy metal scene with Atlanta’s Mastodon.

Deafheaven : Infinite Granite

Ever since their debut album Roads To Judah, Deafheaven have been on a steady incline. Each record outdid the previous in scope, musicality, and artistic depth. Their sound was loud, abrasive, and aggressive, but also extremely melodic and at times melancholy. “Blackgaze” , combining black metal and shoegaze, may be a trite tag but it […]

Rupert Lally : Timelapses

Composer Rupert Lally is no stranger to musical exploration. His work emanates depth and light, towing the line between film score meticulousness and deep dives into electronic bliss. The Swiss by way of UK composer and musician makes musical works that ask for your attention, but can still be a gorgeous soundtrack to reading in […]
