Punkt Festival

Led Zeppelin Remastered: The First Batch (I, II & III)

I, II, III | IV, Houses of the Holy

Minibus Pimps: Cloud to Ground

Read "Cloud to Ground" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

Characterized by gloom and intricacy, the music on Cloud to Ground by Minibus Pimps is like a set of sonic hallucinogens that permeate deep in the mind. Minibus Pimps is a brainchild of Supersilent's Helge Sten and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, and the result is a creation that is deeply abstract, complex, austere and is ...

Read "Arve Henriksen: The Trumpet is My Pen" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

Henriksen's music is an otherworldly amalgamation of different and sometimes opposing elements, with imaginative soundscapes built on the tradition that trumpeter Miles Davis ...
