Haerts new album

Review of the new album by Haerts

One fan wrote, “I can’t waittttttt!”
And the wait is nearly over.
Haerts have been making hearts, at least some of them, beat faster, with last year’s release of ep Hemiplegia. Since then, they’ve been working on their self-titled new album due to finally be released on October 27. Apparently their name was misspelled to make it personal.

A little like pop music, you can mix up the clichés all you like, but they’re still recognizable – and still not yours.

Review of Taiga – Zola Jesus

Zola Jesus is back. Nika has stepped forward once again to remind us of her own vision. Taiga was mixed in Los Angeles with co-producer Dean Hurley who has worked with David Lynch, but the songs were written in the wilderness. Zola Jesus has called them accessible, and in comparison to older songs like Vessel, or Skin, the album does contain those easily recalled moments of fervent energy that are the hallmark of more pop-driven songs.

But if Taiga means the snowforest, and is the largest type of biome on the planet, then this album is maybe looking to merge that vast imagery with the feeling that music is all out there to be explored.
