The godfather of alternative guitar returns w/an all-instrumetal album composed in tribute to his influences & contemporaries. Summoning the spirits of some of the greatest guitarists of all time, Chapman proves again that he stands among them
Rarely has a guitarist emerged w/as distinctive & singular a voice as DORJI has w/this series of nylon-string improvisations. Recorded in the US & Bhutan, this collection stands as a defining document of a great 21st century guitarist
Combining an elemental Appalachian spirit w/a modern compositional approach, this collection serves as SARAH LOUISE's vinyl debut. Her deeply ornate & engaging playing adds rich new colors to the palate of contemporary guitar
A widescreen, cinematic vision for acoustic guitar composition from this classically trained Icelandic artist. From minimal tone poems to densely melodic ballads, this collection presents a deeply personal approach to modern guitar that takes us on a journey of enexpected beauty
With a lineup culled from 20 year collaborators & friends from bands like IRON CHIC, FELLOW PROJECTS, DEEP POCKETS & more, this 9 track debut LP is a mostly bleak, sometimes triumphant existential meditation led by 3 acoustic guitars, crushing lyrics, & soaring multipart harmonies. Takes a mournfully populist perspective on themes ranging from climate destruction & living paycheck-to-paycheck
Their sophomore LP is made up of 12 new songs using a sonic palate drawn as much from bands like Leatherface & Articles of Faith as it is contemporaries like Candian Rifle & Tenement. Described as "the quintessential Chicago pop-punk band of this decade" by AV Club
Rippers of this quality probably aren't gonna put a halt to the plethora of "rock is dead" essays, but those savvy characters w/guts, imagination, & any sort of critical faculties are gonna figure this out pretty fast
Minimalist punk with a refined sound focusing on interlocked bass & drum rhythms paired with shrill guitar counterpoint & stark female vocals. An injection of uptight, nervous energy into the reverb drenched complacency of today's musical underground.
Showing the world a brand new version of themselves, Jacob Ewald and Brendan Lukens have split their third full-length into two halves, both taking the helm to curate a sonic journey into territory both familiar and foreign in the band's discography.
The undeniably fun Miami-via-Boston "basement glam" rockers Ben Katzman's DeGreaser have been making a name for themselves in the garage rock community over the past couple years, bouncing between FL & MA, bringing their signature "chillin' hard" attitude with them everywhere they go. There's the unabashed Kiss, Van Halen & Judas Priest worship, the never ending quest for the ultimate shred, a deep love for astrology, & a good deal of homage to 'Grease' & the rock & roll lifestyle of the past. It's all very tongue-in-cheek, but in the case of Katzman's DeGreaser, it's also quite genuine & sincere. Features guest "shredding" by Arain Shafiee (GUERILLA TOSS).
Limited to 600 copies. The Third Sound's 2016 album 'Gospels Of Degeneration' showcases a shift in style for the group, having toned down the shimmery psychedelia in favour of something a little cleaner. That's not to say this is a barren sounding album at all. It's still hypnotically layered with country-kissed reverb, and retains those itching guitar riffs that will keep whispering through your mind for hours after listening.
Recorded mid-summer 2015 at the Pyramid Club, Wellington! On this album the sound is an explosive brew concocted from the quicksilver synths of Mos Iocos, the intricate bass lines of EtonalE, the psychedelic biscuit tin guitar work of Baba Rossa and the the primitive, powerful stick work of newly recruited drummer Woild Boin.
Ode To A Black Hole' is a 52-minute doom drone jam that was recorded in October 2014, on the last day of the 'Different Creatures' recording sessions. Featuring the same line-up, this piece is unlike anything else that the collective has ever recorded. Heavily influenced by Gong, 'Ode To A Black Hole' features synth drones, violin, pedal steel, minimal bass and slow emotional drums. After about 40 minutes the piece becomes quite heavy, not letting go until the end of the spaced out finale. Limited to 200 copies on magenta coloured vinyl.
