After their excellent album Erosion of the Black Speckle, Heaven in Her Arms takes a step forward with this brilliant EP. 被覆する閉塞 has the same great intensity and raw emotion found on the band's full-length, combined with those great melodic post-rock elements, only more focused and with better, more on-key vocals.

This really makes me want to learn Japanese; at least I can understand a word here and there. But the power of the music renders comprehension of the lyrics almost unnecessary -- it's the guitar work that really shines here. Beautiful lead guitars float over a solid foundation of chugging rhythms and take center stage as the heaviness fades into gentler post-rock sections to match that genre's best acts.

Heaven in Her Arms is swiftly becoming my favorite "screamo" band, precisely because they're not true screamo at all; rather, they combine elements of metal and post-hardcore flawlessly with the instrumentation and harmonies of post-rock to yield a delightful aural mixture. Fans of the previous album should definitely give this EP a shot, and even those who didn't like it may find something worthwhile on 被覆する閉塞. Very highly recommended!

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
