pearl jam

This is a fretful and ferocious record, lyrically much preoccupied with things having ended or appearing about to end, but musically much more blaze of glory than any kind of funeral pyre. Producer Andrew Watt helps the grunge stalwarts with what he did for The Rolling Stones last year: roll years back while avoiding parody.

bill frisell
Blue Note

Orchestras documents two inspired concert-hall engagements arranged by Michael Gibbs. Sweeping orchestration evoking landmark film scores and Gil Evans alike move nimbly within and around the trioís telepathic rapport, and Frisellís shimmering trademark tone melds gorgeously with symphonic strings and brass.

On Coup de Grace, Connie Sgarbossaís most private and innermost thoughts are funneled through the lives of fictional characters within a noir-inspired world. Sgarbossaís hold nothing back attitude combined with the bandís intensely dark blend of sasscore, punk, mathcore and metalcore, makes for profound and devastating listening.

high on fire
MNRK Heavy

Cometh The Storm is an absolute monster of an album, a ten-ton aural leviathan, a thundering colossus in audio form, the sonic equivalent of an end-times harbinger of death from the second the listener hits 'play' and is walloped into consciousness to the last dying strains of the final track as everything fades to black.
