Gabrielle Herst’s Second Album Empty Me has been playing pretty regularly on the station. It came out last October and we added it last month. Surreal vocals over over interrupted pop sounds, Opera Pop experimental strangeness. It makes you stop in your tracks and listen.

Check out her music here Bandcamp and make sure to follow her on twitter.

Jessica Pratt - Quiet Signs

Dream Pop that doesn’t make you fall asleep. Creepy vocals, floating guitars. This album opens with a sparse piano introduction and Jessica Pratt’s vocals are a weird ghost that echoes in. Check out the video for “This Time Around”  Her high tinny voice sounds like it was recorded in another space and time.

For more, check out her Bandcamp, and make sure to follow her on twitter.

Airhead DC - Crush Hi

So the Animal Collective influence is apparent here. But, there is enough original sound to make this it’s own thing. Appropriate use of synthesizers is appreciated. Airhead DC is Vishal Narang’s latest project, and can be found on his bandcamp. It never hurts to follow on twitter either.

And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for:

Drum roll….

Khemmis Desolation Review

Khemmis continues to impress with their 3rd album in 4 years. Their blend of traditional heavy metal with darker elements from doom metal leads to a style all their own. Fans of traditional heavy metal will love the incredible range of singing and arpeggio lead guitar riffs, while doom fans will bang their head to the chugging of the guitar and the echoing war drums in the rhythm section. This album continues their run of great albums, retaining their heavy sound while bringing more more hard rocking solos. This is immediately apparent in the album single, “Isolation”, which starts off fast with a descending solo and never lets up. The final and longest track on the album, “From Ruin”, showcases more of their doom roots. “Bloodletting” and “Flesh to Nothing” are also standout tracks. Best listened to while gazing out the arrowslits at the enemy below.
