Album of the Day Recap – 01/10/18 – 05/10/18

It seems that the world gets worse and worse each week, with recent events in America being particularly disheartening. I wish I had some words of encouragement, but that’s not where my head is right now. Instead, here are Albums of the Day for the past week – largely chosen with the intent of keeping myself grounded. Enjoy!

 

Shield Patterns – Mirror Breathing – 01/10/18

Beautiful, hauntng, and ethereal, I was a big fan of Mirror Breathing upon release, and it has lost none of its power.

 

Rachel Grimes – Book of Leaves – 02/10/18

Something a bit different; Book of Leaves is wonderful solo piano music, from modern classical composter Rachel Grimes.

 

Couch Slut – Contempt – 03/10/18

Whereas Contempt is the sound of wounds that won’t heal, of bad memories that refuse to fade, of utter fucking despair.

 

Circle Takes the Square – As the Roots Undo – 04/10/18

A screamo classic, As the Roots Undo is as moving as it is ambitious, constantly switching between ideas and sounds.

 

Uncanny Reality – Plague of Ignorance – 05/10/18

And, to see us out, is Plague of Ignorance; DSBM of the bleakest, most hateful kind.
