Been a while since I have been listening post-rock at all but this new one from Spurv made me remember how awesome music instrumental post-rock can be at it’s best. This norwegian group is a great example of that. Bought their debut, Skarntyde, few years ago and that record had a serious time under the needle. This new one continues where that debut ended. This is music for those late autumn mornings when afternoon frost is trying to escape from […]
I’ve known this band for some time now but it took quite long to purchase their music in physical format. Instrumental stoner/doom/sludge/call-it-whatever-you-want is quite new thing to me and I like it!. Like this so much that I must grab their previous records too. Great example how many great bands there is and how limited our time is to find all these treasures, some you might find and some you’ll obviously gonna miss. Really happy that I came across with […]
Dead Sea Apes.. I fell in love with their psych/drone inspired post-rocking instrumental music since I heard their collaboration album with Black Tempest called “The Sun Behind The Sun” five years ago. Oh, I think that I have all their vinyl releases so I can be called a fan or something. This double album is some kind of compilation but that didn’t stop me purchasing it (even though I’m not that big fan of compilations). I recommend this group if […]
This I got from HeviSike yesterday, been waiting for this and I even thought that also this one has gone missing (like what happened with my die-hard copy of Morass Of Molasses). Hopefully this arrived in perfect condition. I missed Brunt’s debut album and been hunting it since but this twelve-inch helps to ease that pain. Doomed instrumental psych/stoner/whatever and sounds damn good. Limited to 300 colored copies (like on the picture above) and still available from the source, HeviSike. […]
Woah!! Latest recording by Richard Houghten, album titled “All Guitars 2”. If you haven’t ever heard of this artist, I suggest you to check out his works. I already have several of Houghten’s albums & 7-inches (few seven-inches still missing) and with every new release he manages to surprise me. Folktronica, instrumental, experimental, acoustic guitars.. and this time we can hear some cover versions from Aphex Twin, DJ Shadow, Bonobo etc. Damn, I love his records. Managed to grab a […]
Got this post-rocking instrumental album from Throne Records few weeks ago, and have to admit that my soul is resting while listening these tunes. There was this time period while I listened mostly instrumental post-rock like If These Trees Could Talk, Toundra, Explosions In The Sky, Mono etc. Great bands but too much is just too much. Nowadays I use to listen bands from this genre time to time and this album by El Altar Del Holocausto sounded way too […]
This is record I ordered while sitting on the bus on my way to my grandmothers funeral almost two months ago. I listened this via BandCamp several times during that trip and fell in love with this blackened, ambient/drone, nearly instrumental folk metal record. Never had heard of this band before I got this mail from Throne Records announcing release of this record. On this album there’s one track I could listen on repeat & endlessly and that track is […]
Few weeks ago I got this beauty via post. I missed this one when it was available (all Richard’s releases sell out within hours). I really like this artist and I always try to grab whatever he is releasing but sometimes it’s really hard because of time difference. Few times I have woke up in the morning just to notice that something has been announced and sold out while I have been counting sheep. With this one I was more […]
Finally, repress of this awesome debut album by Circle. I had that original version back in the days.. and can’t remember what happened to it. This repress of Meronia is limited to 1000 copies, 700 copies on black wax and 300 copies on solid orange vinyl (colored version is available only via Ektro Records). I do not even have words to praise this one enough but one thing is for sure, this prog/kraut/beauty has always been one of the best […]
Hahaa.. got this latest (second full-length) from Voyag3r earlier this week. Horror/sci-fi/synthwave seems to be quite popular nowadays and here’s one of my favorite. I really liked Voyag3r’s debut album (Doom Fortress) and now it’s time to check out this new one. After few tunes I’m sold again..This is exactly what I was hoping for, synths/space/horror/80’s. Some may find music like this ridiculous but I don’t. There’s this certain nostalgic value hidden here beyond these sounscapes. This deluxe edition (on […]
If you like classical, modern classical played with piano this might be the one you want to purchase. Thanks to retter for this one, once again (I’m spying this gentleman via BandCamp). Really awesome little record from Niels and I’m very, very happy to own this beautiful record (limited to 99 copies according to BandCamp) and I really hope to hear more from this artist. Just check out this one and if you like what you hear, go for it […]
Today I just realised that I haven’t mentioned this crushing instrume(n)tal album I got months ago. This is Tempel’s second album called “The Moon Lit Our Path” and well, it’s better than their previous, debut album “On The Steps Of The Temple” which was/is excellent instrumental metal album. Amazing duo showing amazing talent. If you like your metal without vocals and if you like metal music (seasoned with some post-rock vibe) overall, I suggest you to check this out. Two […]
During this week I have received few interesting records indeed. Let’s start with this on from Richard Houghten. All Guitar, latest vinyl release from this folktronica artist (limited to 40 copies on lathe-cut clear vinyl). Little hard to describe his music.. words like acoustic, experimental, folktronica, instrumental can be used when fitting this one to some genre. Beautiful record once again from Richard and I’m damn lucky that I managed to grab this one before it was sold out. Keep […]
Sometimes we all need some post rocking tunes in our world. This Patch of Sky and their self titled album finally arrived, for your information I ordered this beautiful instrumental album 28th of September 2014. Anyways, it’s here and this dude behind the screen is very happy. Everyone of us knows that the term “post-rock” is a very difficult to describe.. you just can’t ignore the fact that some of us hates bands like This Patch of Sky, others love […]
Here I’m rubbing my hairy & dirty hands together with a smile on my face. Yes, I managed to purchase this latest lathe-cut seven-inch from Richard’s BandCamp site. This tiny record is filled with “folktronica”, like artist himself describes his music, and I just love his acoustic-downtempo-instrumental-folk. Title track is composed for the Transworld skating film Open Horizon and the video can be seen on the bottom of this page. Limited run of 30 copies has sold out, sadly. But you […]
This post-rocking, smooth slow-core album arrived few weeks ago. Freaking beautiful record this is and now I have to admit (once again) that I had never ever heard of this band before until I came across this record on BandCamp. After listening only few minutes I had to purchase the album, surprise! Atmosphere on this album is hypnotic, magical. And hey, this is their sixth record… and I can recommended! And thanks to record label for understanding. Limited to 300 copies […]
Fantastic record from this instrumental synth-space-horror-stoner band! Even though I’m trying to avoid purchasing test pressings.. I just had to have this one and once I got a chance.. result can be seen on the picture above (there were only 3 copies available for public). Poisoned Mind still has copies on black vinyl /w green splatter & prism cover available (at this moment there are only 2 copies left), why didn’t I purchase that too.. ? Well, anyways this record […]
Are you ready for some darkness.. crushing, doomed, instrumental album from this Slovakian band. I came across with this record when I was checking out some new stuff on BandCAmp. The cover picture (damn, I love it) drew my attention and I decided to check the album.. and as you can see, I bought the album. I like this, it’s instrumental & doomed sludge album seasoned with some stoner & drones.. or something but it’s crushing, slow and dark. “All […]
Oh, what a pleasant day.. It has been nearly two and half weeks since I have received any record but today this miracle happened (in form of three LP’s and one double seven-inch) . This one is Spurv’s debut album “Skarntyde” and I have been listening this a lot lately (digital copy of the album). Last few weeks have been very hard for me (more about that lately) and this album has brought some sparks of light to these darkened […]
Got this misery/sadness filled instrumental post-rocking dark ambient atmosphere filled album earlier this week (I think it was Monday..). Well anyways, I have been listening this one a lot today and once again I have to say that I really like what I am hearing here. And how did I came across with this band at the first place? Actually I was checking out where to find that latest long-play from the almighty Thisquietarmy (got that one coming this way […]
I got this one from Richard yesterday (and yes, Richard, I have enjoyed this one a lot!). Instrumental folktronica, as this beauty is described on BandCamp. Limitation is very low (about 20 copies or few more) and sold out already. Maybe he should release his digital long play on vinyl too? I would certainly purchase a copy. Recommended one and if You ever find a copy, do not hesitate to purchase it. Yes! —
Yesterday I posted about that double album, ‘Shadow Play’ by 36. Well, today’s post is about that extra item which was included. As You can see on the picture, it is ‘Hollow’ by 36 and actually the only twelve-inch by him that my collection was missing. And just for clarification, I didn’t ask any of this, replacement nor anything else. I really appreciate how he is taking care of his fans/customers (it’s quite rare nowadays..). But about this album and […]
Finally, thanks to Pelagic Records, this order is complete. After some delivery mistakes, damaged cover and waiting I got a replacement cover for my precious Mono vinyls today. I really appreciate how Pelagic worked this out. About the albums and the music on them. Well, Mono is Mono and their albums have always been amazing. I have followed this band since their album “Hymn To The Immortal Wind” (well, I somehow managed to miss their previous one though..) and enjoyed […]

And then we come to this excellent instru/experimental droned psychedelic album. Latest from Dead Sea Apes, released by Cardinal Fuzz. Been listening this piece a lot and won’t get enough. It’s that good. Can’t praise enough that work done by Cardinal Fuzz and all those bands on this label. This album, and all their previous releases should be in Your record rack. So, what are You waiting for? You can purchase this from Cardinal Fuzz or straight from the band […]
Yes I actually purchased this, without listening. Hey, I clearly remember those times when visiting a record store and buying a record based on the cover image of the album. For example back in the days I bought “Swallowed In Black” by Sadus without hearing a single note from the record, it was common those days. So I did the same thing with this one. I do not know who Robert Scott is, with whom he has played etc. But […]
Nice to meet you my old friend, it has been a while. Yes, for some reason (I do not know what) I haven’t been listening this band for ages. There’s so much bands and artists, yet so little time.. It’s time to spend some quality time with this band again, nice to hear that Chelsea Wolfe appears on this album, not bad at all. Limited to 500 copies on clear, 500 copies on steel grey and there are also […]
Had to make exception with this band and their CD (just found this old friend hidden in shoe box where I have stored my past treasures). I bought this years ago and still this might be the best post-rock/instrumental album ever (in my opinion). This one makes my heart smile. I really do not know if this is available on CD anymore but if you are interested, you could try to purchase this via their website or if you prefer digital, head […]
This one I got today from post office. Mixture of instrumental and psychedelic, quite happy to have this one now. I can recommend this open-hearted, it’s up to you if you find this as beautiful as I do. Limited to 250 copies on black vinyl and 50 copies on seam foam green vinyl. Both versions available from their Bandcamp page. Get yours.
Yep. If you are into modern/experimental/weirdo jazz.. this is one of those records that you should purchase. I personally purchased this few years ago from Denovali and was totally amazed about this band from Japan. Instrumental jazzy-post-whatever-experimental.. pure love. This record, vinyl version, is totally sold out from the source (Denovali). Limited to 150 copies on this color and 350 on black vinyl. Denovali seems to have CD copies on their webstore though..
And another album from Balmorhea. There’s no way to describe how amazing these tunes are. There’s a tune “Remembrance” in this album and for me it’s maybe the greatest song I have ever come across. This album is also available from Western Vinyl. Get it.
