Godspeed You! Black Emperor with Om at the Fox Theater, 2/22/11


Gregorian groove
Setting the ominous scene

Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Tectonic music
The breath of a moving earth,
Climaxes in waves.

The Radio Department at the El Rey, 2/16/11

I can't fault them for
The drum tracks when they insist
On sounding so sweet.

Robedoor, Warm Climate, and Alpine Decline at Pehrspace, 2/11/11


Jagged shards of light
Slicing declaratively
Through the drone's shadow.

Warm Climate

Was all I could process as
My jaw hit the ground.

Alpine Decline

An emo streak a
Mile wide down the center of
Their snow-laden path.

Chelsea Wolfe at Vacation Vinyl, 2/11/11

The lacy visage
Analogous for spider-
Web-intricate sounds.
