Sufjan and Co. Go To Saturn 6 replies

Planetarium, a collaborative project including indie darling Sufjan Stevens, The National guitarist Bryce Dessner, classical composer Nico Muhly, and drummer James McAlister, was first debuted at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2013.

Braveyoung's Misery and Pride 12 replies

California minimalist post-rockers Braveyoung have begun streaming their long-delayed second full-length album, "Misery and Pride", through Bandcamp.

Originally meant to closely follow the April release of their 2015 EP "No Peace In This Mind", the record was unforeseeably delayed after member Isaac Jones suffered a severe head injury in a traffic accident which resulted in the temporary removal of part of his skull.

As before, the band's newest outing continues to toe the lines between post-rock, ambient, and modern classical music, tracing its influences to minimalist composers such as Terry Riley and Arvo Pärt.

A more detailed piece concerning the time leading up to the release of the album, Jones' accident and recovery can be read courtesy of Daily.Bandcamp, and the album can be streamed both via the article as well as directly through the Bandcamp page for The Flenser.

Bowie monument scrapped 17 replies

Plans to erect a 30 foot-tall lightning bolt to honor David Bowie in his hometown of Brixton have been spurned after the crowdfunding campaign failed to hit its target.
