Leviathan - A Silhouette in Splinters

Band: Leviathan
Album: A Silhouette in Splinters
Genre: Dark Ambient
Country of Origin: USA
Year: 2005

Track Listing:
  1. Traveling Over The Ocean's Skull

On this 44 minute long EP, Wrest takes Leviathan out of the project's usual raw Black Metal and explores a similar aesthetic with Dark Ambient. Much of the music is created with guitar strains and feedback, lending an almost Drone feel to it.

Swedish Hip-Hop group that heavily mixes Swing and Jazz into their music. It sounds amazing and the album is full of great beats and catchy music, and most importantly, rapping in Swedish.

The Dear Hunter - Act 1: The Lake South, The River North

The Dear Hunter's debut. Layered and complex instrumentals make up the musical heart of the album, primarily in the style of progressive rock but also incorporating elements of orchestral music, blues-rock, jazz, ragtime, and ambient, sometimes several times in the space of a single song. The vocals are similarly varied, with pop-ballad sections giving way to dense harmonization that would shame a barbershop quartet.

The album is also a concept album, the first in a set of 6 telling the surreal story of the titular character The Dear Hunter.

I like this one a lot, but Act II (The second album) is better in my opinion.

Get it!

Sune Rose Wagner

artist: sune rose wagner
album: self titled
year: 2008

like the raveonettes? wondering how you didn't hear about this album? well don't feel bad, apparently no one really did. and sune seemed to be pretty okay with that, as the release of this album was about as low key as the album itself. maintaining his lo-fi sound from the raveonettes, but presented in a more shoe-gaze fashion, this is some norweigian goodness that sounds a bit like sigur ros having a love affair with the 60's.
