Audiofeed 2017 preview: Øde Vinter

Every year what I perceive as the limit of the musical paradigm of Audiofeed is blasted apart. Would I expect to see black metal here? Sure. How about a worldview that isn't Christianity at a predominantly Christian festival? Yes again (I learned that the first year). A band as dark in image as Øde ...

Playing to Vapors takes math rock to the mainstream with “Shred the Master Design”

I've had this album for a long time now, and Playing to Vapors is one of my favorite bands out of the Midwest.

Com Truise’s “Iteration”: Where Tycho meets S U R V I V E and more

We live in an era where the synthesizer is moving back to the forefront of music. Com Truise's first record in six years is perfectly timed in that regard. I feel that some people are going to see the title of this review and tell me I'm insane for comparing Com Truise to Tycho, but allow me to ...
