Much like everything she released so far, the sound and the set of ideas she brings to the table are truly admirable, but, in the end, it is the inconsistency and the utmost struggle to find a place of her own, a satisfying balance between all the many facets in her music (black-metal, folk, pop, orchestral music, post-rock just to name a few) that marks Mareridt as an unmistakable Myrkur album.
A delightful archival set of slick, groovy vintage synth-funk, led by the one and only Dwight Sykes, who wrote and recorded via DIY settings, some of the most evocative RnB/soul/g-funk hybrid songs of the 80s in his Tascam 464 four-track console. While spending countless years in inexplicable anonymity, Sykes' work is finally receiving official releases via PPU, while still maintaining that charming, gorgeous lo-fi quality that really makes his grooves stand out with just the right ammount of ... read more
A sensible work of beauty, italian ambient/drone producer Giulio Aldinucci's latest album is a peak for the veteran artist. Borders and Ruins builds around a set of incredibly well-crafted slow-burning pieces that, together, create a strong and bright mental panorama of solemn beams of light slowly, endearingly sweeping through cracks in a monolithic wall of glacial ice.

While seemingly quite unpretentious, this record holds a charming power in its simplicity. A successful recipe that might definitely please fans of early Actress.
Oh yeah! Also, it's not a problem revisiting your videos. Really love them. Good to know that you really love the album, and I also hope that you talk about some of Swans' albums in your channel as well.
I wanted to leave the site because I think it's better to just have one place to rate music. I also didn't really like RYM's design at all. Also, what are your thoughts on "White Light/White Heat"? I watched the VU&Nico review on your channel and I don't remember you mentioning that LP. Really curious to know what you think about it.
On my third listen now. It's rare that I just want to return to an album or EP this much after I listen to it for the first time, and I think that this is already a classic based on my first listens. Will spend some more time with it, but right now, I'm loving this EP.
