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.”

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
