Let's experiment with our emotions. Or let's get emotional about our experiments. This mixture of alternative music, rock, and musical otherness will bring you to an other dimension.

Grizzly Bear – Painted Ruins

Grizzly Bear came back after five years of break.  While their previous LP, Shields, was a marvel full of imaginative and sophisticated compositions, Painted Ruins were expected to deliver pretty much the same. But let's be clear. It did not. Promotional singles were a prelude to what became a compilation of well executed, but watered-down, … Continue reading Grizzly Bear – Painted Ruins

Album of the Week: Mount Eerie – A Crow Looked At Me

Listening to Mount Eerie after such experience is a very rough, cold shower. A Crow Looked At Me brings you back to earth with soul-wrenching stories, menalcholic melodies, … Continue reading Album of the Week: Mount Eerie – A Crow Looked At Me

How she could do it, I don't know. Her talent is enormous, her gentility is magnificent, beauty of her music is astounding. Laura Marling recorded an album that you expected her to record. Semper Femina is as soothing and reflecting as it can get Laura Marling sixth's combination of delicacy and might makes this album both heart-wrenching … Continue reading Album of the Week: Laura Marling – Semper Femina

Album of the Week: Jesca Hoop – Memories Are Now

Jesca Hoop recorded a wonderful, beautiful and heartbreaking album, which will surely be considered not only as one of the best LP of 2017, but also her best yet. At first, I thought of Memories Are Now as a specific combination of Julia Holter, Laura Veirs, Sharon Van Etten, with a pinch of Joanna Newsom. And it stole my … Continue reading Album of the Week: Jesca Hoop – Memories Are Now
