KFAI - Roar of the Underground
Red Sparowes - Aphorisms album cover

Red Sparowes

Aphorisms, 2008

7.0 / 10

When Red Sparowes released At the Soundless Dawn, I began to better appreciate instrumental music. The sound that the band has made for themselves incorporates pedal steel guitar, wandering movements, ...

Red Fang - Red Fang album cover

Red Fang

Red Fang, 2009

7.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Bold, in your face stoner rock from members of Bad Wizard and Party Time. If you like your rock heavy with Sabbath sprinkled into the mix, Red Fang are your ...

Boris - Attention Please album cover


Attention Please, 2011

2.5 / 10

I absolutely love Boris' work ethic. Four new albums of fresh material in one year is more than anyone should be able to ask of any artist whose name is ...

Boris - Heavy Rocks album cover


Heavy Rocks, 2011

7.5 / 10

Boris' sound is defined by their insistence on rocking the fuck out. Their earliest works, like the classic albums Heavy Rocks and Pink, revolve around taking heavy metal and, to ...

Boris - New Album album cover


New Album, 2011

7.5 / 10

New Album is a bit of a misnomer, at least on this side of the pond. It was actually released all the way back in March in Japan, two months ...

Good Old War - Come Back As Rain album cover

Good Old War

Come Back As Rain, 2012

8.5 / 10

The first time I heard Good Old War, I heard them live - probably the best way to listen to them, in my opinion. Their harmonies, melodies and musical arrangements ...

Fang Island - Major album cover

Fang Island

Major, 2012

7.4 / 10

Two years since the release of their eccentric eponymous debut, Fang Island return with Major, the band’s second album on LA record label, Sargent House. It’s quite evident that their ...

Native - Orthodox album cover


Orthodox, 2013

8.4 / 10

It's been a while since I've been this interested in a post-hardcore record. Native seem to have that effect on me. As a band, they're too often overlooked, brushed aside ...

Helms Alee - Sleepwalking Sailors album cover

Helms Alee

Sleepwalking Sailors, 2014

8.3 / 10

Helms Alee’s Sleepwalking Sailors is a ferocious asteroid of post-hardcore, doom metal, and noise rock. The Seattle-based trio’s third album, released on Sargent House Records, hurls you through a deathly metal ocean, ...

Helms Alee - Sleepwalking Sailors album cover

Helms Alee

Sleepwalking Sailors, 2014

8.0 / 10

Sleepwalking Sailors is just too good, promptly inserting itself at the top of my list for album of the year (for now, and yes, I keep a running list all year ...

Russian Circles - Guidance album cover

Russian Circles

Guidance, 2016

8.1 / 10

The constant presence of Russian Circles in the post-rock domain has raised them to a prestigious status, and rightfully so. The band from Chicago started off about a decade ago, ...

Boris - Dear album cover


Dear, 2017

8.5 / 10

I like the idea of certain types of metal paralleling the thought patterns of jazz. Whether it is the twitchy renderings of a Meshuggah beat, the sprinkle of jazz-like tendencies ...

Chelsea Wolfe  - Hiss Spun album cover

Chelsea Wolfe

Hiss Spun, 2017

8.1 / 10

Darkness isn’t something everybody can access within themselves. Some are afraid to explore those shadowy recesses, some deny they exist, and some embrace it and find a cathartic release through ...

Emma Ruth Rundle - On Dark Horses album cover

Emma Ruth Rundle

On Dark Horses, 2018

8.0 / 10

Where 2016's Marked for Death battled with Emma Ruth Rundle’s mortality and medical history, and allowed the artist to work through feelings of hopelessness and pain, On Dark Horses tries to take control of ...
