Last one! Orchestral math pop, perhaps? Whatever you name it, these seven songs are an absolutely gorgeous combination of cello, wurlitzer, and voices. The latest project from Ephriam Nagler and Jen Grady (Waxfire, Emily Jane White, Adam Stephens). Beautiful cd artwork by Jason Vivona, to boot.

Released on Portland's Fukdup Records, the album comes on a yellow (hazard symbol-adorned) cassette with a nuclear-green case...[ continued ] Hanford Acid- Transuranic Waste

Amazing movie soundtracks for everyday life. Before Desolation Wilderness became a K Records band, Nicolaas Zwart (Electric Sunset, Drone Ranger) made some of the most mind-alteringly beautiful compositions I’ve ever heard. This album has always been my favorite, due to how it posed that beauty against harsher elements.
