SEPOMANA SPOTLIGHT: Ratking

In folklore, a rat king occurs when dozens of rats, squirming and wriggling around in compact, dirty places become tangled and knotted together by their tails, creating a writhing mass, even freakier than than the sum of its parts. Just as one can imagine New York City subways being a prime location for a knot… Read More

SEPOMANA SPOTLIGHT: Yonatan Gat

When people say about music, “it’s way better live than on record,” it’s usually in reference to electronic music, and generally a slight to the band’s albums. While the comment is true for Yonatan Gat, neither of its common implications are. Yonatan Gat is built for high-energy, improvisation-filled concert madness, and their records, like 2015’s… Read More

Mixed Feelings & Mixed CDs

Platonic_Love.mp3 After taking a nap for 3 1/2 hours I get dressed again but alter one thing. A shirt or a sweater. Or change the outfit entirely, only a handful of people saw me anyway.

Album Review

of Montreal // Aureate Gloom

Aureate Gloom is of Montreal’s thirteenth LP, and lead singer/band leader Kevin Barnes continues to be a musical genius. Though he has changed the band’s line up once again, the infectious melodies, esoteric references (get your dictionary), and vocal harmonies we’ve come to expect from of Montreal are all still here. Aureate means golden and… Read More
