MetalMatters: April 2019 - It Is April So "Why So Serious?"

So many records, so little time. When this feature started out the main goal was to distill the swarm. There is simply so much great heavy music out there, and April was a testament to that fact. Bands like Big Business, Inter Arma and Sunn O))) returned with some of their strongest works to date, while the new blood entering the scene in acts such as Ceremony of Silence, Numenorean and Chalice of Suffering displays an abundance of creativity.There have been some unexpected shortcomings the prev...

Jozef Van Wissem and Jim Jarmusch Continue their Unlikely Collaboration with the Dark, Droning 'An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil'

None Famed independent film director Jim Jarmusch never really gained notoriety for his musical exploits, and Dutch experimental lute player Jozef Van Wissem isn't exactly a household name, so it may not be a surprise that a musical collaboration between the two artists would fly under the radar.But the truth is, they've worked together frequently over the past few years. Beginning with a chance meeting in New York City in 2006, Jarmusch and Van Wissem have since collaborated on three studio al...

A Musical Oasis in an Icefield

In January of 2016, I boarded a plane from my home base in New York City and touched down a few hours later in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Though I was born in Montreal and lived through its blistering winters for almost three decades, five years of temperate NYC weather had dulled my hibernal instincts: I showed up with a slick coat best suited for a reasonable East Coast urban setting, wearing cowboy boots… …It was negative 40 degrees. Fahrenheit or Celsius, you ask? Doesn’t matter, they’re th...

What’s In A Name? How Bands Use Symbols, Characters

Choosing the right band name is something many artists struggle with, and like anything else is susceptible to the cultural trends of the time. It should be no surprise then, that many successful groups haven chosen to go off the rails by incorporating symbols and characters that are often difficult to pronounce or type. ________________________ Guest post by Dre Dimura of Soundfly's Flypaper What’s in a name? Picking the perfect band name is hard, as I’m sure any of you who h...

4 female surfers who paved the way for women on waves

It wasn’t the biggest check Lisa Andersen earned as a competitive surfer – but it was one of the most meaningful. She was the surf contest director in 2003 at the Roxy Pro France contest. One of her jobs was to oversee an “expression session,” an exhibition outside of the main event. The men’s prize: $1,500. The women’s? $500. “I think we need to up the ante a bit,” she said to event organizers. They raised the women’s prize money to match the men’s. Then she entered the contest, and won, earnin...

The 50 Best Ambient Albums of All Time: A Playlist Curated by Pitchfork

What makes a good ambient record? I’m not sure I can even begin to answer that question, and I count myself a longtime fan of the genre, such as it is. Though conceived, ostensibly, by Brian Eno as modernist mood music—“as ignorable as it is interesting,” he wrote in the liner notes to 1978's Ambient 1: Music for Airports—the term has come to encompass “tracks you can dance to all the way to harsh noise.” This description from composer and musician Keith Fullerton Whitman at Pitchfork may not g...

EP Review: J. Foley, “Drone Loops”

Now, this is the way EXPERIMENTAL music is supposed to sound – epic, thought-provoking and loud! The Austerity Program guitarist J. Foley departs sonically from his pseudo-full-time noise-rock/art-metal gig with a new four-composition EP of drone loops titled, yep, you’re a smart one, Drone Loops. (It came out May 5 on Controlled Burn.) But, while the constructions – he recorded 20 in all – have a smoldering industrial tenacity to them, it’s the the art of composing them that will give fans of a...

An Animated History of Goth

"Is your teen gothic?" Don’t laugh, it’s a serious question. If your teen is a goth, there are a few paths available to you, and not all of them good. Let’s consider some, shall we? You might, in the course of some research, come across a resource called the Parents Universal Resource Experts—or P.U.R.E.—which is not a parody Evangelical band invented by DEVO. You will learn things like “the predominant color of gothic clothing is black” and “the gothic attitude is one of sadness and dep...
