The debut long-player from the Lone Star State trio featuring Jonathan Meiburg, Emily Cross, and Dan Duszynski, Loma splits the difference between the spectral post-rock of the latter pair's Cross Record, and the powerful indie rock pageantry of the former's Shearwater. The project began to take shape during Shearwater's 2016 tour, which saw Cross Record serving as the support act. Recorded in a secluded Texas farmhouse in the midst of the dissolution of Cross and Duszynski's marriage, the ten-track set is both delicate and robust; a semi lo-fi excursion into impressionistic art-rock that appeals to both the head and the heart. Bolstered by a pair of compelling singles, the appropriately Motorik "Relay Runner" and the brooding and hypnotic closer "Black Widow," there is a considerable bit of alchemy at work -- Meiburg provided the lyrics and melodies, while Cross handled vocal duties and Duszynski engineered and mixed -- this suggests that whatever bad juju was occurring in the background was being successfully processed through the music. Opener "Who Is Speaking" sets an almost ephemeral tone that's eventually reined in by the muscular "Dark Oscillations" and "Joy," both of which flirt with traditional rock architecture, but are ultimately carried off into the ether via Cross' celestial voice. The stark and brutally frank "I Don't Want Children" impresses with its sonic intimacy, as does the mercurial "Sundog," one of a few selections that utilizes the sounds of the remote location's flora and fauna -- wind through the trees, birds chirping, and dogs barking in the distance -- lending the proceedings a bucolic, almost Terrence Malick-ian vibe, and adding even more mystery to what is truly a singular piece of work.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

The Black Keys in 10 Songs

From 2001, The Black Keys have been reminding the world about the real roots of the Blues, cutting away all the frills and unnecessary solos. Their music has always been untamed, abrupt and minimalist. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney developed this unique style over the course of two decades, without once selling their souls to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads. Here are ten songs to prove it.

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.
