dinner-and-hearing-things Yamagata Japan, 2001 till present The boys from fantome have rereleased the elegant post rockers, Dinner's album with some new remixes and new songs. Coming from the area of Japan where some of the best instrumental post rock is created, these Yamagata boys do not disappoint. With clean guitars and simple and sometimes ambient/minimalist songs which fade into aggressive overtures. The entire album has an organic and natural feel to it with genres like jazz, funk and progressive mixed in for variation. At certain points they sound like a jam band and at other times a precision based mathematical band. Whatever they are, they rock with grace. Influences rises from likes of Ghost & Vodka, Fugazi, Tortoise, Don Caballero, Pele, Explosions In The Sky, Penfold, Bjørk and many more. Artist - Dinner Album - And...

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
