Julia Kent

Julia Kent was born in Vancouver, Canada, and studied cello at Indiana University, Bloomington. She has performed and/or recorded with many artists and ensembles, including

[ Antony and the Johnsons ] [ Burnt Sugar ] [ The Angels Of Light ] [ Larsen ] [ Backworld ] [ Jarboe ] [ Devendra Banhart ] [ Angela McCluskey ] [ Leona Naess ] [ Teddy Thompson ] [ Rufus Wainwright ] and (sometime around the Pleistocene era) Rasputina.

[ DummyMag ] - Freedom is a vital thing in musical expression, and from label intervention, to listener expectations and assumptions, to the potentially enslaving confines of genre and style, its constriction can take many different forms. While Julia Kent’s third LP ‘Character’, released on The Leaf Label this week, will be pigeon-holed as being “modern classical”, such a claim could easily be reductionist – and complicated in relation to a musician who, having trained classically, “fled that world and never looked back”. Featuring just Kent, her cello, and the array of instrumentation and found sounds that are so integral to fully embodying ‘Character’, it’s an album packed with open-ended possibility. And through this free expression, as an inevitable by-product, even when ‘Character’ is reaching for dense layers of sound and building an orchestra of looped Julia Kents, this is a work of the kind of intimacy that could only be achieved by an artist really occupying a space of their own.

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.
