Quin Kirchner: The Other Side of Time

Read "The Other Side of Time" reviewed by Kevin Press

Albums that clock in at anything near 90 minutes are not automatically major works. On the other hand, this new effort from Quin Kirchner and Co. is hard to describe in any other terms. Kirchner's six-piece band has delivered a wide-ranging, powerful disc.

Things get rolling with the appropriately titled “Ritual." From the start, ...

Cities uses many of the same musicians, structures, and approaches, but Bergman and NOMO seem to focus more on pulling traditional jazz sounds into, and pushing the boundaries of electronic rock out of, its swirling ...

NOMO: Ghost Rock

Read "Ghost Rock" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

The initial sound heard on the opening “Brainwave" offers a first insight into the music of NOMO--the sound of composer, multi-instrumentalist and bandleader Elliot Bergman “playing" an actual brainwave monitor. It's an important clue: NOMO finds music where other people find noise.
