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 […]
There’s always room for another Sólstafir album on my record shelf. Ordered this one from Season of Mist some time ago and it came on white vinyl with some art print (this version is limited to 100 copies). Thing I like the most when talking about this band is those vocals, there’s so much emotion there even though I don’t have a slightest idea what these songs are about. Anyways, once again brilliant album from this Icelandic group. Available on […]
Actually this came already weeks ago, just haven’t had time to get more familiar with this album but now I’m working for it. Really love their previous album, Come To Thaw, and as this new one is now playing on my headphones I think that I have to share that love between these two albums. This is some kind of mixture of doomed neofolk with some post rock in it but the mostly, this is music filled with sadness.. Great album from […]
If I have to describe music Harakiri For The Sky is performing, I would say that it’s melodic, post-rocking blackened metal. But because I don’t have to do so, I just concentrate on listening to it. Few weeks ago I was checking out some local metal bands on their gig and there was this record vendor with hundreds of records.. Of course I had to check out his crates. Hundreds of black metal records from bands I have never ever heard […]
I was introduced to this group years ago by Denovali Records. This is latest release by this awesome japanese post-rock/contemporary jazz band. It’s quite refreshing to place records like this one on your turntable and let yourself slip away.. This twelve-inch was released by Topshelf Records and limited to 1000 copies (150 copies on black, 350 on clear and 500 on white vinyl) and is available from the same source, Topshelf (clear & white copies, black is sold out..). Beautiful release, […]
These I bought for myself as a christmas present. As you can see all three albums are represses, I can’t afford to buy original copies (surprise). I have this difficult relationship with Neuosis just because there’s one album above all (in my opinion) and that’s “The Eye Of Every Storm”. Yeah, I have purchased all their albums after that release but this particular album is a sort of cornerstone, or something, to me. Well, now it’s time (at last) to get little more […]
Haaaa.. new album from one of the best Post rock bands there is, Mono. I lost my heart to this group when I heard their album “Hymn To The Immortal Win” (2009) and the song “Follow The Map”. I got this one earlier this week and listened it only once (it’s a shame that I have to work during weekdays..) but I truly love every note I heard. Obviously this album will have plenty of playing time. This colorway is […]
Neurosis is Neurosis, what else there is to say. I have listened this few times now and I like this a lot, but this one needs time like every album Neurosis has ever put out. My friendship with this band started with their awesome “The Eye Of Every Storm” album, and I still find it best Neurosis record ever. I just have to give this new one some space and I know that in the end we are still close […]
Even though this wasn’t my day (you can check out from facebook why..) I’m still available to smile just because of this record. This is my first album by Subrosa (somehow I have managed to miss all previous ones.. can’t explain why) and even though I knew the release date and the time when this was available for pre-order, I still missed the most limited color variation. Okey, I tried to order a copy using my phone but couldn’t remember […]
Funny that I have forgotten this band totally. I loved their debut album (bought it when it was released in 1994) but somehow I have managed to skip most of their records during these years.. Anyways, this 5th album of Circle (Finnish psychedelic/kraut rock band) has been pressed on vinyl first time (150 copies on clear and 350 copies on black vinyl) and available from Ektro Records (but remember, shipping cost from Finland are enormous). But you can also purchase regular […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Hey, nice ten-inch vinyl from Portugal. Post-rocking, shoegazing stoner or whatever but I like this little record. I think that someone tipped me of this record and I’m glad about that. There are two versions of this 10″ available, this numbered (and limited to 96 copies) and regular (256 copies) there’s a small difference on prize tag but choice is yours. Nice one indeed. — —
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 […]
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 […]
Well, surprisingly I got this other album too. Actually I missed both of these most limited versions at the first place. I was just checking SIGE’s website about information for that upcoming Menace Ruine record when I noticed that these were restocked on SIGE’s BigCartel store, rest is history. If I remember right, I mentioned about that restock on Twitter.. Difference between these two albums is that this one is more experimental, more complex, more disturbing.. Lovely. Maybe I should listen […]
I was little confused when this album was released, two separated albums with same title? Anyways, got this one here now. Little rougher stuff after spending some hours with those Low Point releases. I have to admit that I had no idea about this band when I purchased their previous album “NO” few years ago.. and nothing has changed :) One thing is for sure, I love the music. Like the roughness, like the rage beyond every note. There’s something […]
Latest addition to my collection. Third full-length from this sludge/stoner group (second one I own). Well, I did not get this from Brutal Panda just because I missed that pre-order thing totally, I bought this from Profound Lore last week. The catch was that they got copies with damaged covers (some minor corner issues) and because of that it was not that expensive. I might have to buy another (regular) copy of this album just to get pristine replacement cover […]
This came yesterday. Actually I do not know anything about this band but when hearing this album via BandCamp the decision was clear, I had to purchase this. This is so-called post rock album seasoned with experimental touch. I like this record and as I’m now on the train heading to work, this is more than a good soundtrack for this calm and dark morning. This limited edition (hand-numbered etc.) has a pressing of 111 copies and is still available […]
Ha! Latest album by Earth came today from Southern Lord (love the way how secured they send these packages). I have to admit that within few months I have grown to be a big fan of this band and I have no explanation why I have skipped this band so many times before.. error is now corrected. Heavy & slow, the way I like. Now I just have to hunt down those missing (earlier) releases. Surely there are plenty of […]
It’s been a while since I have purchased pure post-rock album and this is nice album to cut the silence. I picked this up from the Post office half an hour ago and it’s playing on the background as I’m writing this. Sounds nice, actually this sounds more than nice. Atmospheric post-rock like it should be played. This goes to my top three when talking about bands playing post-rock (other two are Toundra and If These Threes Could Talk), so […]
At this point (while I’m listening these tunes), I find this record very interesting, mostly because its outstanding mixture of post-rock, folk, drone, deserted blues, western psychedelic cosmic space rock.. Did I mentioned everything yet? The point is that this works for me! And I’m really glad that I purchased this album also (it took just one track to hear). This is limited to 200 copies and is available from Trips und Träume. Get Your copy while there are some […]
Yes, one of my long time favorite artist, Thisquietarmy, and latest vinyl release by him (if we don’t count that collaboration album with Noveller). These tunes are new recordings of previously released tracks and this just shows how this artist has evolved during these years. Not bad release at all! This release is limited to 500 copies on white vinyl (including few limited versions). When I found out about this, the most limited version was already sold out (Special “Silver […]
Finally this LP has been repressed (this time by Denovali). Originally this was released by E-vinyl Records back in 2008 but the reason I never purchased this was simply that it was released on picture disc. Now this massive debut album from this doom/post/hardcore band is in my hairy hands. This repress is limited to 150 copies on clear w/ blue splatter and 350 copies on black vinyl. Clear one is sold out from the source but still you can get […]
It took a while to arrive but today it arrived. There were some delivery problems etc. along the way but most of all, it was my bad I ordered this from Australia (I should have done more research and order a copy little nearer, from Europe). Well, the main thing is that it’s here now and was worth to wait. Epic mixture of stoner/sludge/doom/drone/psychedelic rock. I have been playing this album the whole day since it arrived and every time […]
Uuuh.. Cult Of Luna and their latest release on vinyl (actually this has been released 2010 by as audio book/DVD “Eviga Riket” and now on vinyl as “Eternal Musc). I have been a big fan of Cult Of Luna since ..I do not even remember when, so it was quite natural move to purchase this (hmm.. now I have to admit that I can’t remember how I came across with this release). But anyways this is music only release and […]
2 x Uuuh.. And yet again, the latest album from Thisquietarmy. This is pure experimental-post-something-shoegazing-drone- love! I’m so glad that I found this artist few years ago. For me his albums have been a way to escape this modern hectic world, just place your headphones on and start the journey across the universe. Really love these seas of sounds and can’t do anything else than recommend, highly! Limited to 150 copies on ultraclear and 200 copies on black vinyl. Available from […]
Seems that this week begins with few records from Denovali Records. This Iroha & Fragment. collaboration has been on my “wanted” list for so long that finally I decided to purchase this one. And once again, pure quality album released from Denovali. And about record itself, shoegazing-metal-post-something and certainly this one will have several spins under the needle. Limited to 150 copies on this color and 350 copies on regular black vinyl. Pick your copy from Denovali.
Last one of these three Mono albums that came today. There are two things that I usually avoid purchasing vinyls, compilations and live albums. And now I had purchased both.. And actually this live album does not differ that much from any studio albums and hey, I got DVD also included with this one. Limitation of this one is 500 copies on red, 500 copies on blue and 2000 copies on black vinyl. If you are ever going to purchase […]
And this compilation also arrived today (even though I’m not tat big fan of compilations etc.). Limitation of this is 1000 copies, pre-ordered copies cam on this color and then there is 2000 copies on black vinyl floating around. Compilation that shows how this band has evolved during those years. Not bad purchase at all, I think so.
Managed to update my Mono collection with few new items. This is one of those I got today. As we all know this is Japanese post-what-ever band, and I have been fan of this orchestra for few years now (since “Hymn To The Immortal Wind”). Got this one (and two other albums) in quite decent prize. This is limited to 500 copies on green & blue vinyl (Temporary Residence pre-order item). There is also standard black vinyl variation and it’s […]
This one I really like, and damn that I’m so demented nowadays that I can’t even remember how I discovered this album at the first place (in this case it really doesn’t matter anyways). And about the album itself, pure gold. Atmosphere on this album is very dark and same time somehow very calm.. I do not know. No info about limitation but you can order this jewel from Sub Rosa. Highly, recommended.
This doomed stoner album arrived also today. I really like the roughness on this album (well, that was the reason I purchased this one). But in the same time this can be beautiful (I don’t know is that word best to describe this album) and very pleasing. According their BandCamp page this color version is limited to 100 copies and it’s still available from same place, BandCamp. I can recommend this one, honestly.
And last but not least, Zvuku’s album, Remnant. I got tipped about this release, went to listen some tunes on BandCamp and it was easy decision to purchase this album. Beautiful music, really beautiful if I may say. Limited to 250 copies and available from Heat Death Records. Highly recommended.
This one came few days ago. I have been fan of Cloudkicker since I heard his “Beacons” album. This artist has his own path of doing what he likes. Nice record, once again. This is available through his BandCamp page. Limited to 100 copies on this color variation (sold out) but you can still purchase this on transparent, blood-red vinyl. Oh, and I have to mention this. I hate shrink-wrap. Why? Because wrapped cover allows LP to move inside […]
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 is also one of those records from my “wantlist”, have been on that list for years.. Finally I “managed” to purchase this one. This is 3rd pressing of this record and damn what a beauty this record is.. when you hold this one against the light, it looks like this: Awesome record indeed. Limited to 200 copies on this form and 300 on classic black vinyl. Both versions available from.. Denovali (surprise, surprise).
Yep, latest arrival. Once again something different compared my lately purchases (metal, experimental, ambient etc..). Well, this is a great day to listen some math / post rock. Refreshing indeed. Limited to 100 copies on clear, 150 on translucent gold and 250 copies on translucent red. Clear and gold ones sold out BUT you can buy all three bundled (limited to 15 bundles) from Topshelf Records.
And this I picked up from Post office today. Collaboration with Nadja and Japanese Vampillia, released by mighty Important Records. Nice record and “must have” all fans of Nadja. This is limited to 500 copies (first 100 copies on red and rest on black vinyl). Available from the source, Important Records. Here’s something you can expect from this album:
This came yesterday. Once again one of those records I’ve been hunting down for some time. Denovali release and some might already know my obsession with Denovali stuff. Limited to 100 copies on this color variation and 200 copies on black vinyl. If I remember right, first press is sold out from the label but there’s second press (limited to 200 copies on ultra clear vinyl with black and white splatter) available from Denovali. Recommended.
This came few days ago, one of those Denovali releases that I’ve been looking for some time. Bought this from Discogs and I’m quite happy for this find. Even though this is early releases by Denovali, quality is as good as every other Denovali release. Limited to 250 copies on this color and 250 copies on black vinyl.
Drop from TRR came today. Been listening The Explosions In The Sky since their awesome “Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Live Forever” album (well, that’s the only album I have from them). But anyways, this one is nice and I have to consider purchasing earlier releases from them too. This is limited to 1000 copies on this color (according to Discogs it’s more like 936 copies) and 1000 on white vinyl and […]
Uuh.. this beauty arrived today. One of those Denovali releases that I have been looking for long time. This was one of those bands I used to listen when I had that post-rock-period. Finally I have this one. Limited to 150 copies on white and 350 copies on black vinyl. Sold out long long time ago.
Another Bandcamp discovery. Well I have read something about this record months ago but really listened this lately. I like this one even though this ain’t metal :D Limited to 300 numbered copies and available from Homeless Records or Norman Records.
Today arrived nice pile of records, have been waiting for these for a while. This one is purely “Bandcamp” discovery. I had to purchase this one once those banjo tunes reached my ears.. Limited to 500 copies (250 gold&bone, this one, and 250 copies on bone with gold haze). Available from band’s Bandcamp page.
This was the last one that came today from Denovali. This record produces very dark atmospheres and I love it! Journey to everlasting void and beyond. Limited to 350 copies, 150 on silver and 200 copies on black vinyl. Both versions are still available from the source, Denovali. Buy it, when you still can.
Strange and same time so beautiful record. Found this via OMG blog and listened for a while from Bandcamp. It was quite obvious that I had to purchase this one. Try this, really. According their Bandcamp page, this is limited to 200 copies (so hurry..)
