OhBree - Death By Broomstick

OhBree – Death By Broomstick

Ever wished that poppy folk-ish music existed with brass, variations, a bit of prog and a bit of jazz? You got Sufjan Stevens, who does incredible stuff. If that’s too mellow for you, and you feel like partying more, or dancing even, well here comes OhBree with all the aforementioned elements, plus the element of surprise! Ah ha!

Am I comparing a petty little unknown band to the almighty god of…

Mind[s]peak - Pictures

Mind[s]peak – Pictures

Talk about something refreshing! Mind[s]peak‘s new, and apparently first, album Pictures is one chunk of progressive metal madness! Reminiscent of Dream Theater, Spock’s Beard, King Crimson, and Yes all at once, this female-fronted band really delivers!

Their music is quite instrumental-heavy, but vocal sections are always throughly worked and layered with multiple voices, which is interesting,…

Numbers - Three

Numbers – Three

We usually don’t post anything that is metalcore but Numbers has some magic going on. Now to start off this review let us take a moment to recognize how great this album sounds. This is due to Aaron Smith’s excellent production work. What really stands out to me is how great the electronic backing tracks blend with the band. You can check out his site if you want to hear what else he has worked…

Omniataxia - Omniataxia (2012)

Omniataxia – Omniataxia (2012)

You know you’re in for a treat when the tags “ambient experimental free jazz improv metal noise post rock” show up on bandcamp, and when the band respects the tags they’ve used! Omniataxia‘s been on my computer for quite a while, and I might have unconsciously forgotten about it until the blind hand of the music randomizer chose the song Scatterwhiteand gently played it to me. Half-asleep, I…

Bisbâyé - Gestalt (2013)

Bisbâyé – Gestalt (2013)

Polyrhythmic anger and dissonant mathematics. That’s how I would describe Bisbâyé‘s album. Rarely have I listened to music where polyrhythms truly feel polyrhythmic. On Gestalt, there’s no doubt you’ll feel each separate rhythmic pattern on its own, thanks to the ingenious arrangement of the drums and guitars, and it creates such an unnatural, counter-intuitive, and mesmerizing feel.

The band’s…
