In a way, the EP is a series of six meditative song cycles, minimal compositions that explore darker (and narrower) textures than her previous solo album, 2015's The Expanding Flower PlanetMore

Every Noah Gundersen release is a twisted rag, an artist wrung out musically and emotionally over a dozen or so tracks. White Noise, Gundersen's third studio LP, follows suit with cultural critiques, personal confessions, and spiritual reflections that musically build on the atmospheric indie pop/rock of Carry the GhostMore

For the members of New Zealand four-piece Yumi Zouma, it's been a long road home. It started with EPs created from files sent across continents, and progressed to a debut album recorded together but outside their homeland. Willowbank is the great return, the band finally comfortable as a band, heading back to record the follow-up to last year's Yoncalla.
