[ Commissure ] is a four piece outfit from San Francisco, California United States. Self describe Low-fi bedroom rockers, Commissure are reminiscent of artists such as [ MOGWAI ] ~ [ MONO ] ~ [ RED SPAROWES ] ~ [ Wang Wen ] and many more with their heavy syncopation, slow builds, and amazing crescendos.

2010 - Night / Day [ EP ] 2012 - Unknown Realizations: It's In Our Heads, We Just Don't Know.

[ Commissure ] 2009 release “Stars Could Care Less” is predominantly a post-rock album, albeit a very good one on all instrumental facet, Commissure conception is reliant on the experience given by the album/music itself. In accordance to it being a simple movement or a complex one for that matter, the music emotionally take you from one place to somewhere only Commissure can respectively attain and they’ve accomplished that bit on “Stars Could Care Less”. No doubt about that.

Moving forward about a year later [ Commissure ] released a two track EP title “Night/Day”. These two songs were intended to be put out as a split vinyl with [ ordstro ] but that project somehow dissolved in thin air and never happened. Two years later the band now introduces us with their latest work “Unknown Realization; It’s In Our Heads, We Don’t Know”.

Second full length from San Francisco Leading groups [ Commissure ] and as much as I dig the previous debut album and EP this new title is a real grower. Since [ Commissure ] comes as a package deal and ready to blow some serious noises we not going to do a track by track write-up. The entire album from start to the dead end holds some real sonic noises along with the influence of a mini orchestra and structured with all the cannons that usually accompanies the genre. It’s rather clear the band wants to convey a message but what’s the message all about… that is up to the listeners to decipher.

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.
