  1. I am much more out of the loop going into 2019 than in years past re: upcoming music, so I will be keeping a close eye on Bandcamp and this thread for new post-rock. Definitely looking forward to the new TEOTO album coming up - I haven't listened to any of the singles in anticipation of hearing it as a whole. Glacier posted on FB that we'll see a new album this year, so that's on the radar as well. Also, unrelated to the discussion: I FINALLY got a copy of Black Clouds' first album. It's been on my want list for practically three years. There's no reason why I haven't picked it up sooner but I finally caved a few weeks ago and just had to pull the trigger. Such a solid band and a great, no-BS post-rock album.

  5. This album is GREAT. Holy crap. Never thought I'd be stoked on a Mono album in 2019 but here we are. Went into this with subzero expectations -- Requiem had no staying power for me and when I heard that they added "electronics" for this new album I thought we'd be seeing a change from bad to worse. Glad I was wrong. This thing blows everything since Hymn out of the water. Huge Pipal Tree vibes on the title track. "Meet Us Where the Night Ends" and "Sorrow" are colossal, like the mashup between Hymn and One Step we didn't know we needed. I'm still not sold on "Breathe" - the vocals work but the backing instrumentation needed something more. "Parting" is the generic filler we've been worried about, but since it's sandwiched between two of the album's best tracks I'm not too concerned. The orchestral swells that saturated Requiem appear here, but they're only used sporadically, and never as a crutch. The much-lauded "electronics" are barely there, and for me that's a good thing. I feel like I'm finally hearing Mono again, and not the reverb-soaked mess that permeates their last few offerings. Is it the most groundbreaking album in the world? Probably not. But it's a hell of a lot more than what we've been getting for the past decade, and I think that deserves some praise.

    Lydia - Illuminate

    Can anyone confirm that this pressing is equally as noisy/bad as the first? I'd happily suffer aftermarket prices if it was a good pressing, but it seems like that likelihood is slim...
  10. pg.lost "Key" for $15, if anyone needs it: https://www.indiemerchstore.com/item/45878
  11. As someone who has ordered from Madovia on a couple of occasions, I'm really happy to see I don't have to alter my positive opinion of them. Always nice to see small shops put customers over profit.
