The Venus De Melos Fatty
I absolutely love this. It's like The Speed of Sound in Seawater, but more noodle-y and also more poppy. Love love love love it.

The Color Morale Desolate Divine
Leading up to the release of this album I was kind of worried; the past two albums have seen the band
deteriorating at an alarming rate, and based on the pre-release singles, it seemed they like so many others in the
current crop of post-hardcore, had abandoned their "heavier" roots. Fortunately, Desolate Divine proved my
expectations wrong. The ratio of singing to screaming is certainly tipped in the favor of the former, but as usual,
Garrett's soulful croon is a joy to experience. The heavier parts are a bit dialed in, but their sparsity and
placement make them effective, and Mike Honson taking over h

Rhizome (USA) Demo
Pissed-off female fronted hardcore from San Fransisco. Some genuinely catchy moments dispersed throughout the usually vicious hardcore fare.

Les Discrets Virée Nocturne
Though I don't enjoy all of it, I have to acknowledge and commend Fursy for his ambition. It doesn't always work; "Capricorni.Virginis.Corvi" is a mess of jumbled percussion, glide guitar, and ethereal vocals with little in the way of cohesion. In his efforts of trying to break from his post-rock/shoegaze roots, he at times overdoes the experimentation. That being said, there are still a few inspired and well-executed moments stemming from that same ambition. Opener "Virée Nocturne" marries Massive Attack-esque trip-hop atmosphere and shoegaze melodies splendidly, creating a gray-colored soundscape filled with melancholy. At the very least, t
