Next Episode Lord. Smart Vs Dr. Jin [ LAVA|OX|SEA ] is a three-piece post-rock outfit from Hefei, China. On a Shoegaze ~ Post-rock note ... I' ll say start with " Next Episode Lord Smart vs Dr.Jin ". And on a Math-rock ~ Post-rock note then go for " Heavy Metal Rock is the Best Music ". Either way both releases goes as STROGNLY RECOMMENDED as [ LAVA|OX|SEA ] sound is simply phenomenal. Although I have to say their pitch on " Heavy Metal Rock is the Best Music " is slightly high but I think that's because of the live recording.

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

Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of.

Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
