Yeah. What else is there to say about this outstanding piece of music? Vola is love, Inmazes is brilliant. One of the strongest debut full-lengths I’ve ever heard and one of my new favorite bands. Not to mention a very strong contender for my favorite record of 2015.

Tigran. Hamasyan. A name that everyone who is interested in modern jazz should know. This dude is the future and this record is another step to the throne of jazz.

God, I love supergroups. The only thing that I love even more than supergroups are supergroups with Aaron Turner (ex-Isis). Not to mention Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists) on the drums and as session star: Brain Cooks (Russian Circles, ex-Botch, ex-These Arms Are Snakes). Yeah, take that. Take it and enjoy it!

A very cool stoner rock diamond came around with Stonebringer’s newest output Those Winds. Relaxed when it has to be relaxed, groovy and straight forward in the right times. Very elaborate songwriting, deep atmospheres, and an overall top-notch stoner record.
