Mamiffer – The Brilliant Tabernacle (Sige)

The collaboration of ambient artist Faith Coloccia and post-metal guitarist Aaron Turner under the moniker Mamiffer was a recipe for success.

The Brilliant Tabernacle is one of those albums that are evocative and cathartic through their calmness and candour. It’s a marvellous record!

Kucoshka – Women and Police Everywhere

I’ve been following the strange peregrinations of Atlanta band Kucoshka since their Rad Tantrum album, and their newest one is the epitomization of their endeavours. The almost fifty-minute effort gives plenty of banger riffs and trailblazing moments. Definitely a must for you mathcore addicts.
