Joan of Arc, 1984

Remarkably, so much of the cluttered sound of earlier Joan of Arc LPs has largely fallen away on ’1984’, as has Kinsella’s voice. At first it’s genuinely shocking. But the songs here are a revelation, as profound and plainspoken as parables. Thoroughly of the band’s lineage, Melina Ausikaitis’ lyrics are equally measured with wit, despair and stubborn perseverance.

Yonatan Gat, Universalists

After three years of work, Yonatan Gat has finally completed his ambitious and expansive new album: Universalists.

The sources of inspiration on Universalists are vast. This album is a conceptual and crafted snapshot of an artist evolving and experimenting, fusing the physical garage punk and freewheeling improvisational sounds with elements of avant-garde composition, electronic production and the signature sound of his inimitable guitar.

No Joy / Sonic Boom

No Joy / Sonic Boom is Jasamine White-Gluz and Pete Kember (of Spacemen 3, Spectrum, E.A.R.).

While neither can accurately recollect how they met, the pair first touched on the idea of working together in an exchange of emails during the fall of 2015. What started as a sonic exploration between two friends—passing songs back and forth intercontinentally between Montreal and Portugal—soon grew into a project of substance, the result being four glistening tracks that dance along the lines of electronica, trip-hop and experimental noise.

Check out the world premiere of “Obsession” (Radio Edit) over on Stereogum.

The Low Anthem
The Salt Doll Went to Measure the Depth of the Sea

After a long musical journey, The Low Anthem present their new LP, The Salt Doll Went To Measure The Depth Of The Sea, experimentally crafted and delicately purposeful. Acoustic arrangements are peppered with subtle and fragmented electronic elements across 12 short songs, at once fragile, nuanced, and honest.

Oneida, Romance

This incredible band has been a cornerstone of the Brooklyn underground for nearly two decades. Always evolving, the group has been a beacon of musical exploration and enthralling unpredictability.

Recorded over several years in various locales, the 11 songs on Romance are built around deeply developed long-arc rhythm/phase concepts, noise, yearning, blind guitar rage, longing, the lurch of dying electronics, and a multi-modal embrace of human fallibility and artifice.

Mythless, Patience Hell EP

Mythless is the new guitar-worshiping project from Fang Island co-founder Jason Bartell. At once heavy, anthemic, pensive, and triumphantly hopeful, the debut Patience Hell EP somehow exists at the intersection of trance-metal and meditative-hardcore.

Driven by the shredding, drone-like drums of fellow Fang Island expat Marc St. Sauveur, Mythless flirts with the tech-y music of their peers, but seems to share more DNA with Enya than The Dillinger Escape Plan. It's beautiful, and infectious.
