David Tagg makes his first appearance on WR with an insanely beautiful double album of ambient synth drones titled simply WR027 (the catalog number of the release). This double cassette reissue was formerly released as a 25 copy only double CD titled EEDCD-07 at the now retired Expanding Electronic Diversity label.

WR027 is comprised of 8 long-form drone works constructed of synthesizer, field recordings and reel to reels. Each of these two cassettes are loosely based on the themes “day” and “night”. While cassette one (day) explores more airy textures and warmer sides of the color spectrum, cassette two (night) functions on a more subdued and introspective level.

After the sun goes down, shadows reclaim the landscape with colder hues, inviting you into a moon-lit melancholy bliss. Beautiful waves of shimmering ambience melt gracefully over deep oscillating bass tones that seem to drift into a sleepy eternity. Absolutely gorgeous work by David Tagg filled with depth and feeling. Masterfully executed electronic minimalism! And as if this album could have gotten any more beautiful than it already was, our man Brian Grainger did an absolutely breathtaking mastering job for this special cassette reissue. Heavenly…

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

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. 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. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. 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.
