A further progression into the unidentifiable regions of sound art for the French experimentalist as she casually finds ways to improve on the minimal intensity of her cryptic, literary spoken word passages as well as reach into new territories of hypnotizing the listener with the coldest of electroacoustic drones.
The future is most definitely here and it is as indeterminate as ever.
A coming together of pure noise and improv-based psychedelia packaged, at times with sloppiness but most importantly with a very in-the-moment spirit, to create some of the year's most hard-hitting selection of raw, indie rock fun.
Big Walnuts Yonder offers an eccentric lineup of talents coming from various underground scenes in noise rock and post-hardcore, most notably featuring the wild, deconstructed guitar stylings of frequent Zach Hill-collaborator Nick Reinhart and of course the funky, ... read more
Perhaps it's the more recent infatuation with slowed-down, chill sessions or hard, industrial bangers that have kept the majority of producers busy today, but I still continue to wonder myself why the atmospheric drum and bass genre (essentially the combination of the two listed above) hasn't found any sort of breakthrough this decade.

Melancholic yet maintains itself calmly entirely and even eternal in time with its musical influences, coming off way more as ancient than contemporary.
Can't help but not be completely won over now by what this dude can bring to this era of sound collage.
I'm excited too. And thanks, expect to see at least four more concert reviews for this year (Fleet Foxes/AnCo this weekend, Kendrick in August, Liars in September, and Death Grips in October). I just wish my oldest ones wouldn't be deleted. Also, thanks for showing me Letterboxd. I've abandoned IMDb for awhile now due to the user scores being way too skewed, and haven't had a site that I can find lesser known movies on for awhile now. I'm excited.
