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.
Screw it. Rock is the best. And it tastes great when served with a pinch of electronic flavor.

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

Vince Staples' new LP Big Fish Theory is a dark, mysterious, bass-filled, massive accomplishment, despite it's only 36 minutes long. And it's rapper's sophomore album. Not every 24-year-old records an LP this sophisticated. American rapper managed to mix really dark and heavy music with an atmosphere straight from 1997's synths. You can hear The Prodigy here, as well as … Continue reading Vince Staples – Big Fish Theory

Sometimes I have a feeling I'm no longer listening to Timber Timbre, but to young alternative universe version of Bob Dylan with dreamy synths (Velvet Gloves & Spit). Or just electronica-inspired I'm Not There soundtrack. Or mellow Arcade Fire/David Bowie (Grifting). Or Leonard Cohen (Western Questions)?! Or dreamy, contemplative Bruce Springsteen? Either way, Sincerely, Future Pollution … Continue reading Timber Timbre – Sincerely, Future Pollution

Ladies and gentleman, Mastodon is back. After the weird, incoherent and hectic One More 'Round the Sun, their new LP seems like a fresh breath of great, hard, intense ideas, while maintaining modern, dark The Hunter-like sound. At first, I didn't like the singles at all. They seemed to be imitative, to be the same … Continue reading Mastodon – Emperor of Sand

Well, there's been a while since I listened to a good album by a supergroup. Maybe even a decade. Of course, Crystal Fairy's self-titled debut cannot be compared to the masterpiece of Them Crooked Vultures, but they're quite close to Audioslave's debut. They are rocking, and rocking pretty hard, merging Melvins and Le Butcherettes with … Continue reading Crystal Fairy – Crystal Fairy
