Music Review: Wizard Apprentice – I Am Invisible

Wizard Apprentice I Am Invisible [Ratskin; 2018] Rating: 4/5 Wizard Apprentice’s main act toward expression is unpacking: picking their self open, laying their self bare and exploring the remains. For that reason, it’s hard to say much about artist Tiereny Carter that...

Illiterate Light Sweet Beast [Self-Released; 2019] Rating: 3/5 I don’t begrudge any band for aggrandizing their happiness, especially not a group as optimistic as Illiterate Light, who can wrap a decently upbeat melody around downer lyrics like: “I swear nothing’s...

Music Review: Lee Gamble – In a Paraventral Scale

Lee Gamble In a Paraventral Scale [Hyperdub; 2019] Rating: 3/5 Cities. New cities. Cities that aren’t even on this earth yet. The kind that Lee Gamble, on In a Paraventral Scale, gives a language to. Cities like shrines shining, where stars spill their milk-light on...
