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.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
