I am very excited to release this. It's probably the wierdest change in my music you'll ever see (actually maybe not but I'll get to that in a second). I went from making whatever kinda icy electronic post-rock-ish thing you call Onanon to this: a folk and indie rock inspired album where I actually use my VOICE. ... read more

Dreams and the closer are for sure some of your best and most experimental tracks. but the influences are worn very heavily on your sleeve and i think this sound still needs a bit to be perfected by you, but this is still a great and very unique project from one of the biggest faces in the community.

Woah. Concrete Castles is back with a bang.

I consistently try to follow the different musicians who are part of this AOTY community, it's always fun to listen to independent artists. I spend entire Sunday afternoons just browsing the depths of BandCamp. Anyways, I won't lie, I hadn't been thoroughly impressed by an AOTY album until I stumbled upon ConcreteCastles' "Onanon".

What a project! When I initially gave that album a high rating, I thought for sure I was overrating because ... read more

The 7th LP from Concrete Castles is definitely a contender for their best work

Having said that, in place of the simpler concepts from ... read more

So I listened to this album and here are my thoughts.

I think Onanon is better than this album for the sole purpose of execution, but I'm gonna give it credit here because its not just one guitar chord! It's a p diverse indie folk and folktronica record that sees Concrete Castles step outside the realm of electronic music he is known for.

The two features add quite a lot to the personality of this record. I think for the aesthetic choices, it could've been possible to improve on the ... read more

Concrete Castles back again with his BEST ALBUM YET! Such an amazing development in sound for Concrete Castles. The instrumentation and execution were astounding and proves that he is one of the best upcoming independent artists. With the soft and euphoric tracks like "Prologue: Ocean" (Which has grown on me a lot), to the hard distorted anthem of "The Extreme Blur". It's a super experimental departure from his other works but I for one am loving this direction. This album ... read more
