[ 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.

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
