Ad Nauseam Imperative Imperceptible Impulse
Ad Nauseam's newest, staying true to the name, drill into your head some nauseating hellish landscapes. Complete madness takes you by storm not by some flashy melodies, but by sheer brutal abrasiveness. On the other hand, it can be a bit too much. And having listened to the 57 minutes a few times I increasingly found myself begging for room to breathe.
The Ruins Of Beverast The Thule Grimoires
Odd, I actually expected a by-the-numbers black metal album - which indeed I got but in a different way - and not that I'd be captivated throughout the hour or so that it was on. Sure, much like the ails of many other genres of the type, it can be a little too long sometimes, but I think the riffs, the crescendos, the atmosphere far outweigh a few rare moments of drawn out dullness.
Victory Over The Sun Nowherer
Newest in a long line-to-be of idiosyncratic black metal weirdnesses that experiment primarily with production and them vibes. A pretty neat display of VOtS' abilities.
Allie Crow Buckley Moonlit and Devious
She may not be the strongest vocalist out there, but she can pull off a good hook, damn.
Buke and Gase and So Percussion A Record Of...
This EP goes into a variety of directions, each more intricate and surprising that the last, but all also perfectly complementing each other, from the weird noisy experiments to the atmo-ambient-pop tendernesses.
Sydney Sprague maybe i will see you at the end of the world
An actually catchy work of soft-rock and indie pop with plenty of heart and subtlety. It's too brief to become tiring, but also too brief to really leave a lasting impact.
Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders & The LSO Promises
Can't say this is a predominantly jazz album, even though its leanings towards the genre are very strong. This is mostly a (new age-ish) neo-classical minimalist effort that exceeds any proper concrete boundaries and drives like a monster truck ahead into the stratosphere of beauty.
