We really dig math rock so we just had to feature Totorro’s latest release, Home Alone. It’s eight tracks of instrumental goodness. The guitar work is clean and the drums are tight so be sure to grab this album if you’re looking for something fresh to add to your playlist.
Tides of Man have crafted one of the best instrumental albums we’ve heard so far this year. Young and Courageous plays like a fine barrel aged whiskey, full of character yet artfully balanced. The songs seemingly melt into one another but still erupt with powerful guitar and percussion work. The result is a textured sound that is a must have for fans of the genre.
Seville, Spain is a city full of rich architecture and culture. A place to be inspired by sights and sounds alike. Blusa captures that energy and puts it into their latest release, ¡Toca breakbeat, pedro!, this airy instrumental album is sure to kickstart thoughts of distant travels and adventure. Grab the album and your passport, but try to avoid Instagramming that airplane wing.
Post-metal instrumental act, set and setting, have just what you need for the upcoming winter. Equanimity is seven tracks of powerful guitars and etheral soundscapes. A definite purchase for fans of the genre. We also love that they have titled one of their tracks, Petrichor. (It’s one of our favorite words.)
Jazzy, progressive, instrumental. Three simple ways to describe Plini’s three song EP. Just released this week, the album features lively guitar work. We really enjoy the metal styling of the closing track, Selenium Forest. You can grab the EP for $1 (AUD) or for free via the linked URL on the page…but we always push our readers to pay for good music if they can.
The founding member of Time Tourists and The Mind and the Matter has returned with his latest audio/visual experience. A Nurse’s Story of War is an ambient soundtrack that compliments the visual story of war and all that comes with it. We really enjoyed watching it as much as listening to it.
Brad Amy’s solo project, Whistle for Swift, takes some of what you love about instrumental and math rock music and blends them into a warm atmospheric sound. The airy use of guitar and looping melodies are prevalent throughout the album, Textures. In fact, we’d say that is a perfect title for the debut album. Carefully constructed and delicate at times but layered enough to show character.
Blending chiptune with post-rock elements to create a cool instrumental sound many will enjoy. The self-titled EP is a bit lo-fi but we enjoy that quality and find the album engaging. Members Francisco Cabrera, Daniel Pazarán, Juan Gómez, and Joshimar Vergara have caught our attention and we look forward to what the Pachuca, México based band has in store for the future.
Tannhäuser is just one of those bands that grab you upon first listen. Rhythm meets ambient; their music is an ethereal landscape that is perfect for studying or just chilling out on a lazy afternoon. The Seville, Spain four-piece let their music do the talking, making this instrumental album very similar to other artists we love like This Will Destroy You and Explosions In The Sky.
