Band: sleepmakeswaves Release: It’s Here, But I Have No Names For It Genre: Post-Rock Country: Australia Release Date: 12th of April, 2024 Released via Self-Released After being blown away musically by the new Midas Fall record, the next banger hit my ears immediately afterwards: It’s Here, But I Have No Names For It by sleepmakeswaves from Australia. I didn’t really have the album on my radar, even though I’m familiar with the band.

Band: Infant Island Release: Obsidian Wreath Genre: Screamo, Shoegaze Country: USA Release Date: 12th of January, 2024 Released via Secret Voice Cover Artwork Sarah Bachman Community is a great thing. Achieving something greater doing it together. Being part of niche-culture has its advantages. A lot of things can be done more swiftly and there is a lot less fear of a possible reaction, because an open mind is kind of a minimum requirement to be part of that culture. Obsidian Wreath is a work of love and community. Infant Island release their third album Obsidian Wreath short ..read more

Band: Endlingr Release: Tra Genre: Psychedelic / Post-Rock Country: Belgium Release Date: 27th of October, 2023 Released via Consouling Sounds It’s autumn.

Three meditations of slow, atmospheric Post-Rock with a slight note of Psychedelic. Clocking in around 48 minutes, this is one ..read more

Post-Rock for example often triggers the feeling of being pulled into something, to float in empty space. But what I felt with Night Lights by The Deafening Silence was new and strange.
