Jambinai are a South Korean group who incorporate traditional instruments such as the geomungo (a long zither plucked with a short bamboo stick while seated) and the haegeum (a small, thin fiddle-like string instrument) into their thundering, angular rock music. Their songs can be intense and overwhelming, often reaching furious, ecstatic peaks, but there are also many calmer, more graceful moments, and the musicians are fantastic at controlling their energy and switching between dynamics. Their compositions are primarily instrumental, and it's inevitable that the group will get tagged as "post-rock," but their huge, crushing guitars seem far more geared toward metal and post-hardcore than the pastoral prettiness often implied by the genre (which, to be fair, has its loud side). These songs are defiant, occasionally claustrophobic, and dead serious. When vocals do surface, they take several different forms. Opener "Wardrobe" features screaming and wailing over its furious rhythm and forceful guitar crunch. Closer "They Keep Silence" is much more restrained, with soft, shaky vocals leading into another crashing whirl of sound. However, the song that stands out the most is easily "Abyss," which incorporates tough, austere Korean rapping by MC Ignito into the group's swirling, swarming rhythm. His rhymes get progressively trickier as the music gets sadder and slower, shifting to martial snare drumming before drowning the vocals with guitar distortion as the song ends. In comparison to Jambinai's debut full-length, 2012's Différance, A Hermitage is more aggressive and immediate, even with the presence of several lengthy compositions and moments of delicate beauty. Without question, Jambinai are strikingly original, combining disparate elements into a unique, bewildering sound that resembles no one else. ~ Paul Simpson

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.

Americana, America Through its Roots

The title may sound like a nebulous marketing ploy, and yet for about twenty years, Americana had been summarizing this blend of rock, country, blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues. And like in every big family, you’ll find almost every type of person: the rebellious daughter, the cultivated uncle, the agitated father, the driven cousin, etc.

Marc Ribot, the anti-guitar hero

For thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
