Title Sonic Titan
album the duo draw inspiration from their respective Asian-Canadian upbringings as they "negotiate clashes between dominant cultures and those who are oppressed" by fusing Western and Eastern sounds. Like stoner-rock imaginings of Chinese opera and flower-child psychedelia, the music blends philosophies of Buddhism, meditation, and mantra with the band’s love of extreme sounds like black metal, industrial, and noise. Their name, for example, pins a reference to the Buddhist deity Yamantaka with a song title from doom metal band Sleep’s Dopesmoker. Alaska says their ideal sound would "take Iron Butterfly and the Melvins and put them together."

Says Tiersen, “Strangely while Skyline musically comes across as lighter and happier than Dust Lane the subject matter is somewhat darker - there is certainly a sense of moving on and what thoughts are left having dealt with loss”.

Title Under Summer [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Ade]
Label Big Scary Monsters
For those who were previously enthralled by the bands revered string-heavy and densely layered flavour of instrumental rock, there are seemingly endless new aural delectations to unearth and embrace in the bands intense second effort.
Their music is at once subtle and joyous, hitting huge emotional peaks around moments of serene gentleness and heart-breaking sadness in its orchestration of sonorous guitar interlacing, meticulously crafted string arrangements and - now - soaring vocal harmonies.
Title I am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass
An album that delights in being an album. This is no mere loud followed by soft merry-go-round, but a subtle parade. Bookended by very different but equally intense ten-minute-plus guitar epics, the set has dramatic arcs that don’t all build in expected ways.

The trio of Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew now return as a quartet, reuniting with former member Dave Schramm on electric guitar as they revisit the original concept of their beloved ‘Fakebook’ (a mix of cover songs, ‘covers’ of Yo La Tengo songs and brand new originals) on its 25th anniversary.

Peculiarly-titled release from the Scottish folkie, his fifth "proper" full-length studio album. Produced by Yorkston and Dave Wrench, recorded mostly live at Bryn Derwen Studios in North Wales, and features members of Lamb and The Cinematic Orchestra in the band. It sees Yorkston turn in another collection of gentle, intimate indie-folk which has been called his "strongest and most bewildering set of songs yet".

Title A Letter Home
Label Third Man
Last July (2013), Neil Young traveled to Nashville, Tenn to record an album of covers at Jack White’s Third Man Records on a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph vinyl recording booth..
’’Neil Young just stopped by. He was driving his electric car, the LincVolt, he was driving around town and filming stuff, and he stopped by, checked it out, and me and him were talking about it. We had a curtain set up on the other side,’’ said White. ’’And some kid came into the recording booth and recorded a Neil Young song and when he opened the door, Neil Young just peaked his head out.’’
’’It was a pretty beautiful moment. And I think that a few months later he called me and said, ’Hey man I want to come and record in that booth. Hey, maybe I’ll do my whole next record there.’ I’m like, ’I’m not going to stop you. Where do you want me to pick you up?’’’
Imagine a very simple recording studio not much larger than a phone booth and you’ll get the idea. He describes the album as "an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever". Recorded live to track to one-track, mono, the album has an inherent warm, primitive feel of a vintage Folkways recording. As for the track-listing, Young chose songs that have personal meaning for him, such as British folk artist Bert Jansch’s “Needle of Death” (which inspired Young to write 1972’s “Needle and the Damage Done”), Bob Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country,” Willie Nelson’s “Crazy,” Don Everly’s “I Wonder If I Care as Much,” Bruce Springsteen’s “My Home Town,” and many others. The album begins with Neil recording a spoken letter to his late mother, informing her of his personal and present state of affairs which sets the tone and atmosphere for the duration of the album. He does this once again at the beginning of Side 2 in a way which could explain why he’s selected these particular songs to record. In essence, this presentation is, as its title implies, A Letter Home from Neil. This is a deeply personal and expressive listening experience which is as real and raw emotionally as it is sonically and yet light of touch in its form and flow.
