Morgan Barrie – North

April 28, 2017 Brian Charles Clarke 0

6/10 North by Morgan Barrie is an equally folky and noisy experiment and makes for a sort of bold debut. Barrie’s voice acts as a sonic constant throughout the record which has the advantage of […]

April 26, 2017 Jordan Hodgins 0

9/10 Mellowtone are a ‘trip-hop’ band founded in 2008 from Fribourg, Switzerland, a district that sits on the cultural divide between the French and German areas of the country. Like ‘trip-hop’ pioneers, Massive Attack, Mellowtone’s […]

Future States – Casual Listener

January 31, 2017 Tyler Miller 0

6/10 From the first notes of the opening track “Forward,” Casual Listener by Future States promises a more experimental foray into some light indie rock. Unfortunately, over the course of the next few songs, these […]

Mimoza H- Uproot

November 16, 2016 Brian Charles Clarke 0

5/10 Mimoza H‘s debut EP Uproot is bleak and powerful. It’s sonically centred around a mix of dense electronics and occasional classical-like arrangements that sound like a cross between Bjork, Chelsea Wolfe, and Florence and […]

6.5/10 Prime Junk‘s latest EP Sunnyvale, follows in the footsteps of classic bands that blurred the lines between melody and dissonance. Their brand of noisy indie rock isn’t exactly innovative, but each track competently pays […]

Double Date with Death – Headspace

October 12, 2016 Syd Ghan 0

7.5/10 What goes on inside the human brain? Whatever it is, it’s probably messy, dense, unnerving, and in most cases very, very fuzzy. On their sophomore album Headspace, Montreal power trio Double Date With Death […]

J. Allen – Worry Not

October 8, 2016 Aaron Deck 0

5/10 Production value is an imperative thing when recording. It’s one of those rare, unsung heroes that can make or break any album. Anyone, or their dog, can hook up the ole pro-tools in their […]
