Joanna Newsom

The Milk-Eyed Mender, 2004

9.4 / 10

The Milk-Eyed Mender came out in March and has been gathering press clips like a two-ton goliath going berzerk at a post-bar mitzvah shindig. It's freaking December and I haven't ...

What an album cover! It's the kind that would fit perfectly with the whole music sounding like album cover mantra that makes for a great last resort when you can't ...

Joanna Newsom - Ys album cover

Joanna Newsom

Ys, 2006

9.7 / 10

It's no great feat to experiment sonically and stretch musical taxonomy into another "-core" (clarinet-core, pots-and-pans-core, sit-on-a-synth-and-fiddle-core). We aren't afraid of strange, so long as it's strange enough to earn ...

Dirty Three - Toward The Low Sun album cover

Dirty Three

Toward The Low Sun, 2012

8.5 / 10

The things I like about this album start with the art itself; guitarist Mick Turner's beautiful artwork perfectly captures his music's mood and sound. In fact, it's the best visual ...

Ensemble Pearl - Self Titled album cover

Ensemble Pearl

Self Titled, 2013

6.5 / 10
Multiple Authors

It's genuinely hard for me to get excited about supergroups in general--they're almost never as good as the sum of their parts. And unfortunately, despite the calibre of the musicians ...

Ensemble Pearl - Self Titled album cover

Ensemble Pearl

Self Titled, 2013

7.6 / 10
200 Words Or Less

There's soundtracks to the apocalypse and then there's soundtracks to everything afterward. Ensemble Pearl provides the latter. The din and drone as your mind takes in the ruins of its ...

Al Cisneros - Ark Procession  album cover

Al Cisneros

Ark Procession , 2013

5.5 / 10

 If the name Al Cisneros doesn't ring an immediate bell, his impressive résumé no doubt will. In addition to fronting the godliest (and highest) of all stoner metal bands Sleep, Cisneros ...

Dope Body - Lifer album cover

Dope Body

Lifer, 2014

8.8 / 10

On a long enough timeline, all genre descriptors start to lose meaning. Spend enough time hopping through the tags on Bandcamp, and you'll discover that "hardcore" and "post-hardcore" are mired ...
