Shag - Revolution

Shag – Revolution

It’s easy to miss this album in the onslaught of new exciting releases. Just because it’s so… I don’t know, humble and one might even say simple. Well, that “one” should just keep his feeding hole shut. Because let me tell you this – it’s thanks to people like Shag with albums like Revolution trip-hop...
Blue Foundation - In My Mind I Am Free

Blue Foundation – In My Mind I Am Free

Amazon.com WidgetsHow many albums have you heard where you start listening to the first track and think: “It’s going to be a good album”? Probably a few, right? But let me ask you this – how many albums have you heard where you listen to the first track and think: “It’s going to be a...
2econd Class Citizen - The Small Minority

2econd Class Citizen – The Small Minority

Amazon.com WidgetsAh, such a good album you guys. Yet I almost gave up on it. I kept playing it and just couldn’t see the story behind it. And without a story it’s always just a bunch of songs thrown together, no matter how good they are. I was this close to start squeezing cliches out...
PlayGame - Forbidden EP

PlayGame – Forbidden EP

Is it just me or there’s a new wave of interest towards trip-hop these days? New websites emerge out of the blue (like this self-proclaimed “#1 source of Trip-Hop music” – we all know who’s #1 source of Trip-Hop music ;)) every other musician is trying to squeeze in “elements of trip-hop” in their portfolio...
Yuna - Yuna

Yuna – Yuna

Amazon.com WidgetsI guess I could have picked some other release for review, since I’m only posting 1-2 per month of those. It’s not like Yuna, with over a million Likes on Facebook and with forces behind as powerful as mighty Pharrell desperately needs extra promotion from my miniscule web entity. So this is just for...
2econd Class Citizen - Outside Your Doorway EP

2econd Class Citizen – Outside Your Doorway EP

Amazon.com WidgetsI’m not a huge fan of the expression “best kept secret”. Whenever I hear it I always think of some weird conspiracy or somebody trying to push their crappy work using it as an excuse for no one giving a shit. “Ooh, it’s a best keep secret!” Nope, it’s just shitty. But on some...
Shine - Judas and Mary

Shine – Judas and Mary

Amazon.com WidgetsFor those of you who are wondering (still? this must be your first time here, so, welcome!) what is this album doing here on a “trip-hop blog” I have this to say: the facts that trippin’ the rift is my blog and Shine‘s Guillaume Simon is my Facebook friend have something to do with...
Poldoore - Waiting For The World EP

Poldoore – Waiting For The World EP

I’m really not hard to please at all when it comes to music. Give me something that is well-structured, cleanly put together, has some nice detail and is catchy enough to nod my head to – bam! – I am happy as a clam. Yet this somehow doesn’t happen all that often. Many releases I...
Blossom - Blue Balloons

Blossom – Blue Balloons

I wanted to start the New Year with something nice, pleasant and life asserting. I’m sure later on I will go back to gloom and doom, to darkness and bleakness, to decay and I’m getting carried away 🙂 But it is the beginning of 2012, I have a baby on the way and it’s been...

THE NEW LAW – The Fifty Year Storm

I want to talk about my rating system first, just to get it out of the way. Those of you who visit this blog often may have noticed that my ratings are usually pretty high and almost never go below 3 out of 5. There are many different reasons for my generosity, the main two...

Anomie Belle – Machine EP

Amazon.com WidgetsWell, let’s listen to the thing, shall we? Yes, we sure shall. Machine EP is 5 tracks packed with all kinds of electronica goodness. If you haven’t heard The Crush, you’re a loser you should definitely check out Machine EP, because it based around the title track (featuring Mr.Lif) that perfectly captures the dark,...

Ink Project – Inside The Sun

Amazon.com WidgetsWhen I FEA(U)TURE‘d Ink Project back in January, my main impression was – this is a project that certainly has all their ducks in a row. From the few examples of their music and from talking to them I got this rare and enviable confidence – here we are, this is our sound, this...
