A metaphysical shelter from corporate society. An ascetic journey towards death but celebrating life itself.

The Belgian post-metal/drone band Charnia consists of Diederik Van Eetvelde (bass) , J.J. Pieterse (vocals, guitar), Seppe Batens (drums), Thibaud Meiresone-Keppens (vocals, guitar).
After the release of ‘Dageraad’ in 2014, the band didn’t exactly sit still. They have started to write on a whole new piece, which would crystalize into ‘Het Laatste Licht’. Departing from their post-metal debut, the band has been working on subtler droney and ambient layers of music. Charnia has brought this piece of music as a work in progress on several occasions, perfecting the album every step along the way. The time is finally here to unveil this remarkable piece of music. The music unravels organically, interweaving hauntingly beautiful melodies and soundscapes, aided by the expert musicianship of Jens Debacker (violin) and Innerwoud (double bass).

Alyosha, the fourth full-length album from Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus, released on September 1st.
An hour-long composition comprising six movements with a prologue and epilogue, Alyosha stands somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, post-rock, and American primitive.
“I was reading The Brother’s Karamazov — which is awesome by the way — and wanted to make something of a similar scale and scope. I wanted to aim high, take a leap of faith, pretend to be a better musician than I actually am, and see what would happen.”
From John Fahey to Mogwai, Steve Reich to Ali Akbar Khan, Patkus' music is an idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques.
“For never was a story more stark,
Than this of Alyosha and his Lark.”

Nathan Kairis is a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Asheville, NC. He crafts pieces of music made to bounce off all the nearest peaks of the Appalachian Mountains, like shouting at those surrounding monoliths and listening to the evolution of your own echoes. Each of Nathan’s compositions are reflective, expansive, and imaginative in a different manner than the last. The excitement at the first tremble of thunder, the loneliness of a tundra stretching forever before you, the gentle joy of life with loved ones, and the dynamic interplay between all of these feelings. That is the music of Nathan Kairis.
Acherontia. The Death’s Head Hawkmoth. This album is about disconnection, reconnection, and fluttering between the two. The vibrations between these two emotions can be violent and visceral, or almost calming in their agitation. Here is where we find the shuffling trudge of “Solipsism”, straining pressure of “Surface Tension”, and the breakthrough of the title track. Acherontia is a sonic exploration of what happens in between, a transitory stage that most of us just want to get through.
